Nun, The (Blu-ray) (2018)
Especially in the shadow of 2017's surprisingly solid Annabelle: Creation, to say nothing of the two very solid Conjuring films, The Nun is an overall disappointment. It's too interested in repetitive loud bangs, with a squiffy narrative structure and not enough imagination. It will fulfil a basic need, but it won't linger on the mind or get under your skin like the best horror films can do. The Blu-ray is very much in line with expectations. The technical presentation is pretty good for the most part, with a standout Atmos audio mix, while the 1080p transfer is watchable but inconsistent. And there isn't much in the way of extras. If you like the movie, it's worth grabbing at sale price. For everybody else, try before you buy.

Aquaman (4K Blu-ray) (2018)
The best of the DC Universe films so far and also the highest grossing of all films based on DC properties including the Dark Knight films. Stunning colours and clarity despite being a 2K upgrade. Awesome Atmos sound.
