Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983)
Ray N

With the runaway success of the Star Wars films, any film with a space theme or space in the title seemed a good idea to cheapy producers. Enter 1983s Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone cashing in on both Star Wars and the 3-D craze. Starring Peter Strauss and Molly Ringwald, the film was released a week before Return of the Jedi and now has an 18% critics score on rottentomatoes. But what is it really like? .

Ballad of Narayama (Narayama-bushi k) (1983)
Ray N

The Ballad of Narayama by writer / director Shohei Inamura won its director the Palme dOr at Cannes in 1983. It is a beautiful film with a touch of black humour about customs, tradition and law, sex, family, life and death, set in an isolated village high in the Japanese mountains. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.

Creed II (4K Blu-ray) (2018)

Roadshow's 4K release of Creed II eclipses its 1080p counterpart, offering an improved video presentation as well as a flawless Dolby Atmos mix. This is without doubt the best way to experience this outstanding boxing drama at home. Throw in the accompanying regular Blu-ray with its selection of special features, and this set comes highly recommended. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.

Creed II (Blu-ray) (2018)

For my money, Creed II is the film of the year. It's a competent, exciting and emotionally rich story, confidently exceeding my most reasonable of expectations. It also provides a satisfying ending for the character of Rocky Balboa, over 40 years after his first screen appearance. I don't even think that a third Creed instalment is necessary, though I would watch one if released. On Blu-ray, Creed II is a winner. Roadshow provide a perfectly adequate 1080p presentation, as well as an impeccable Dolby Atmos mix that will prompt your neighbours to register noise complaints. If you aren't 4K-compatible, you should be perfectly happy with this Blu-ray. The selection of extras is somewhat disappointing, but the disc still includes some quality content. I have no hesitation recommending this disc. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.
