Site moving to a new IP address
Michael D
Over the course of the next week or so, the site is going to migrate to a new IP address, courtesy of the NBN. Last time I moved the site, it was down for a few days, but I have learned from that experience and hopefully this time the move will be almost transparent.

Every Day (2018)
Ray N

Cover Art Every Day is a surprise; it avoids the clichés of teen coming of age romances and is a layered and poignant story about identity, relationships, family, understanding who you are, equality and individuality. It is romantic, funny and very entertaining, with a beautiful performance by Australian Angourie Rice. . Sponsored by Atlantic DVD.

Not Another Teen Movie (Blu-ray) (2001)
CallumK

Not Another Teen Movie is not exactly fondly remembered in popular cinematic lexicon, but it's one of the best parody movies to date. I laughed so hard that I cried, and it stands up to repeat viewings. This one will see repeat rotation in my household for a long time to come. Debuting on Blu-ray for the first time ever in Australia, Shock Entertainment provide the extended director's cut, which is a worldwide exclusive at the time of writing. The video presentation is nothing remarkable, but it's perfectly watchable. The audio, meanwhile, is likewise effective. The complete lack of extras is disappointing, however. All things considered, though, this release comes recommended, but at sale price. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.

Counselor, The (Blu-ray) (2013)
Ray N

The Counselor is an original screenplay by novelist Cormac McCarthy, directed by Ridley Scott. With its wordy dialogue, steady pacing and refusal to explain almost everything it has not had good reviews but if you are patient enough to allow it to unfurl at its own pace, and you pay attention, the film has its rewards. A stellar cast including Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Javier Barden, Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt does not hurt either. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.

Ocean's 8 (4K Blu-ray) (2018)
DanielB

This is a very disappointing release, a shallow and contrived film on a UHD release which is only a little better than the accompanying Blu-ray. . Sponsored by Atlantic DVD.

Blue Planet II (4K Blu-ray) (2017)
DanielB

If you have splashed out for a 4K setup and do not own this set, run not walk to your local retailer and pick it up. Breath taking, eye popping, stunning, beautiful, incredible clarity and colour - none of these superlatives really do it justice. Needs to be seen to be believed. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.

Ready Player One (3D Blu-ray) (2018)
CallumK

Ready Player One is an irresistible celebration of pop culture and all things '80s, engineered by one of the greatest filmmakers of the modern age. It's also an exhilarating blockbuster, and one hell of a visual treat. The 3D Blu-ray from Roadshow is a pure delight. The 3D presentation dazzles throughout, taking full advantage of the format's possibilities. Although the downgraded 5.1 audio track is slightly disappointing, the presentation is still easy to watch and enjoy. The accompanying 2D Blu-ray, meanwhile, contains nearly two hours of high quality behind-the-scenes extras. Highly recommended. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.
