DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Season 2 (Blu-ray) (2017)

Cover Art I still don't love DC's Legends of Tomorrow even though I wish I could. Season 2 is an improvement over the shaky first season, and it's certainly enjoyable enough, but it's still too cheap and fluffy. Roll on Season 3. Roadshow/Warner Bros. continue their run of bitrate-starved titles, with strictly mediocre video that should look superior, while the lossless audio is much better. Extras, however, are in short supply. If you're a fan of the show, the set is worth grabbing at sale price. For everybody else, try before you buy. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.

Annabelle: Creation (Blu-ray) (2017)

Without reinventing the horror genre, Annabelle: Creation is a competent, intense exercise in terror, easily surpassing its dud of a predecessor. And it's more pared-down than The Conjuring 2, which leaned too heavily on digital effects. If you like horror movies, you'll almost certainly enjoy this one. Even though a 4K release would have been preferable, the movie still looks and sounds terrific on Blu-ray, and features a small but agreeable supply of extras to round out the disc. No hesitation or caveats here - this one comes recommended. . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.

Ray N

Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper: in Murder by Decree Holmes (Christopher Plummer) and Dr Watson (James Mason) investigate the Whitechapel murders and discover a conspiracy that goes right to the very top of the British government and Royal family. Anthony Quayle, Frank Finlay, David Hemmings, Donald Sutherland, John Gielgud and Genevieve Bujold round out the stellar cast. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.

Doctor Strange (3D Blu-ray) (2016)

Disney have unfortunately delivered a disappointing 3D release for this particular Marvel entry. Video is fine and the supply of extras is terrific, but the lossy audio is a letdown no matter which way you look at it. If you don't care about audio, then buy with confidence. But if you value sound, it's best that you import. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.

His Girl Friday (Bounty Films) (1939)
Ray N

Howard Hawks His Girl Friday, starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell, with its snappy dialogue and fast pace is a delightful yet cynical comedy about newspaper reporters, incompetent elected city officials and the battle of the sexes which is as entertaining now as when it was released in 1940. .
