Sicario: Day of the Soldado (Blu-ray) (2018)

Sicario: Day of the Soldado is reliable, well-crafted adult entertainment. The set-pieces are sensational and the movie looks great from top to bottom, though it's still not on the same level as the original Sicario. It's disappointing that the movie fell short at the box office, putting the third Sicario in jeopardy. Roadshow's Blu-ray arrives with a stellar 1080p video presentation, two excellent audio tracks, and a small but nevertheless interesting selection of behind-the-scenes featurettes. Due to the movie's polarising reception, it's probably best to try before you buy. But if you like the movie, buy with confidence, particularly if you're not 4K compatible yet. .

Sicario: Day of the Soldado (4K Blu-ray) (2018)

This 4K Blu-ray disc makes me thankful once again that this format exists. The 2160p, HDR-enhanced video presentation is vibrant, rich, intricately detailed and stable, topping the 1080p Blu-ray with seemingly little effort. This is how I plan to experience Day of the Soldado many times in the future. With the minor but worthwhile array of special features on the accompanying Blu-ray disc, this set comes recommended. .

It Came From Beneath the Sea (Blu-ray) (1955)
Ray N

It Came From Beneath the Sea, from 1955, is the first collaboration between special effects stop motion wizard Ray Harryhausen and producer Charles Schneer, a partnership that lasted decades and delivered some classic films. It Came From Beneath the Sea is included (in both black and white and colourised versions) in the 3 Blu-ray films package from ViaVision, The Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen: Collection Two. .

Devil's Gate (2017)
Ray N

Devilís Gate is a surprising, and impressive, film from a first time writer / director. It starts out as a police crime mystery but after about 30 minutes it turns into something completely different. The way the film explains what is happening is reasonable enough (if you are prepared to accept the premise) and the impressive acting, atmospheric visuals and enveloping audio mean that it may not matter anyway. .
