Northmen - A Viking Saga (Blu-ray) (2014)
Ray N

Noragami - Series Collection (2014)
Ray N

A scruffy, underachieving minor god with no worshippers and no shrine, a young girl who has out of body experiences, the spirit of a petulant, dead young boy, loneliness and phantoms that corrupt the spirit of humans and drive them to suicide should not be as darned entertaining and funny as you get in Noragami. This is an interesting balancing act for an anime but Noragami pulls it off. . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.

Ted 2 (Blu-ray) (2015)

Some people hated it, but I personally enjoyed the hell out of Ted 2. It made me laugh, and I enjoyed watching it. Universal's Blu-ray is pretty good, sporting exceptional video and audio, and a decent but unspectacular supply of special features. This disc comes highly recommended. .

The Battle of Tiger Mountain (Zhu qu weihu shan) (2014)
Ray N

Legendary Hong Kong director/writer/producer Tsui Harks latest action epic is The Battle of Tiger Mountain. In 1946, in snow clad north-eastern China, a squad of PLA soldiers face off against bandits who have taken control of Tiger Mountain. Loosely based on actual events, and the 1957 novel Tracks in the Snowy Forest that was so popular a revolutionary era Peking Opera was subsequently written and performed about these events, The Battle of Tiger Mountain is the 12th highest grossing Chinese film of all time. .

Blast of Tempest - Complete Collection (Zetsuen No Tempest) (2012)
Ray N

Blast of Tempest is an ambitious and complex anime postulating a battle for the survival of civilization involving death, magic, time paradoxes, predetermination and coincidence, alien intelligence, a mystery, a love story, obsession, revenge, god like trees and Shakespeare. That it does not quite pull it off does not negate the effort and ideas put into the series. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.

Marshland (La isla minima) (2014)
Ray N

In 1980 two detectives from Madrid are sent to a small town in southern Spain to investigate the disappearance of two teenage girls. With its well-constructed and intelligent script, solid acting, believable characters and spectacular landscapes, Marshland is a beautifully made, compelling crime thriller / mystery. Comparisons to True Detective are not out of place. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.
