Thor: Ragnarok (3D Blu-ray) (2017)

Cover Art Disney's 3D Blu-ray presentation of Thor: Ragnarok is, in a word, excellent. The post-conversion looks remarkable, and Disney's encode does justice to the source. The 7.1 audio track is still flawed, but its shortcomings are not enough to spoil the set. With an enjoyable selection of supplemental material on the included 2D disc, this one earns an easy recommendation. . Sponsored by DeVoteD.

Thor: Ragnarok (4K Blu-ray) (2017)

The 4K presentation of the hilarious and entertaining Thor: Ragnarok is reference-quality, pure and simple. Despite being an "upscale," the disc looks seriously beautiful, representing a huge improvement over the 1080p Blu-ray. The audio, however, has flaws, which is unfortunate. How odd that this is a new release, yet folks already want a double dip with superior audio. Still, the movie is great, the video remains excellent, and the extras on the accompanying Blu-ray are terrific - on balance, this one comes recommended. . Sponsored by Atlantic DVD.

Fair Game (Blu-ray) (1986)

A visceral Australian action-thriller, Fair Game holds up - it's surprisingly competent and enjoyable all these years on. As a first-time viewer in 2018, I was impressed. In their mission to properly bring as many Ozploitation movies to Blu-ray as possible, Fair Game has been remastered for its high definition debut, looking and sounding better than ever. It feels like watching a film print on the big screen at a cinema. The special features, meanwhile, are extensive - certainly the most extensive package ever compiled for this movie, and the most we're likely to ever receive. This is one for the Blu-ray shelf. Recommended. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.

Justice League (Blu-ray) (2017)

Justice League is a step in the right direction for the DCEU, but it's a far cry from what it had the potential to be. Marvel's The Avengers is still the best superhero team-up movie to date. I would be interested in seeing a Justice League sequel with a stronger foundation, but considering the movie's disappointing box office returns, it's not clear when - or if - Warner Bros. will attempt any follow-up. Roadshow's Blu-ray presentation is respectable, with perfectly serviceable video and an excellent Dolby Atmos mix that won't leave any audiophiles unsatisfied. I wish there were more extras, but what's included is still of good quality. This is a worthwhile Blu-ray package on the whole, but considering the polarising reception to the movie, this is a try before you buy situation. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.

Thor: Ragnarok (Blu-ray) (2017)

It's hard not to love Thor: Ragnarok, which manages to be funny and exciting in equal measure, not to mention the visuals are seriously stunning. It's arguably one of the best movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. The 1080p transfer is close to reference-quality, with strong colours and pleasing textures from top to bottom. The lossless 7.1 audio track is still serviceable, but is visibly held back by unfortunate compression - I expected better. Nevertheless, with the pleasing selection of extras and the terrific video presentation, this disc earns an easy recommendation. Buy with confidence. . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.
