Jack the Ripper (Shock) (1988)
Ray N

Cover Art This version of Jack the Ripper is a superior two part drama made for Thames Television in 1988. It has good production values and a stellar cast headed by Michael Caine. In 1888 there were no fingerprints or forensics and no one was tried for the murders in Whitechapel; but what is revealed here is who the producers believe was Jack the Ripper. .

Pompeii (Blu-ray 3D) (2014)

Silly but Spectacular! The mountain explodes impressively wiping out all the bad actors, dodgy dialogue and miscast romance. Great audio and video. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.

Tokarev (Blu-ray) (2014)
Ray N

Tokarev, staring Nicolas Cage in a return to form, is one of the better thrillers I have watched this year. It is exciting, brutal, complex, well made and well-acted, with a plot that does not go where expected and a powerful ending. Pity about the aspect ratio though. . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.

Out of the Furnace (2013)

Here is a dark, bleak and brutal little gem. Reminiscent of old Warners black and white family/crime dramas, this sombre and gritty film glitters with brilliant execution. The direction, filming and - above all - performances are sensational. This is one of the films of the year. No extras! Shame! . Sponsored by Atlantic DVD.

Machine, The (Blu-ray) (2013)

Unfortunately, this Blu-ray release has both video and audio issues which reduce the enjoyment of what is an interesting film packed with ideas and certainly worth a a look for fans of Science Fiction. . Sponsored by DeVoteD.
