House, The (Blu-ray) (2017)
CallumK

Cover Art The House is a studious waste of potential. The trailers were funny, but the movie itself is mostly hit-and-miss. Even die-hard Will Ferrell fans will likely walk away disappointed. Roadshow's Blu-ray should please anybody who actually liked the movie. Video and audio are top-notch considering the source, faithfully replicating how the movie looked at the cinema, while the selection of special features is certainly more extensive than expected. This one is a rental at best, but buy with confidence if you're a fan. . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.

Wall, The (Blu-ray) (2017)
Ray N

In The Wall, a film by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow), a solitary, wounded American soldier (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is trapped behind a crumbling wall in the Iraqi desert by a lethal sniper and must use all his training and skills to try to survive. The Wall is raw, tense, gritty and uncompromising, and a happy ending is by no means sure! . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Season 2 (Blu-ray) (2017)
CallumK

I still don't love DC's Legends of Tomorrow even though I wish I could. Season 2 is an improvement over the shaky first season, and it's certainly enjoyable enough, but it's still too cheap and fluffy. Roll on Season 3. Roadshow/Warner Bros. continue their run of bitrate-starved titles, with strictly mediocre video that should look superior, while the lossless audio is much better. Extras, however, are in short supply. If you're a fan of the show, the set is worth grabbing at sale price. For everybody else, try before you buy. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.

Annabelle: Creation (Blu-ray) (2017)
CallumK

Without reinventing the horror genre, Annabelle: Creation is a competent, intense exercise in terror, easily surpassing its dud of a predecessor. And it's more pared-down than The Conjuring 2, which leaned too heavily on digital effects. If you like horror movies, you'll almost certainly enjoy this one. Even though a 4K release would have been preferable, the movie still looks and sounds terrific on Blu-ray, and features a small but agreeable supply of extras to round out the disc. No hesitation or caveats here - this one comes recommended. . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.

Murder by Decree (1979)
Ray N

Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper: in Murder by Decree Holmes (Christopher Plummer) and Dr Watson (James Mason) investigate the Whitechapel murders and discover a conspiracy that goes right to the very top of the British government and Royal family. Anthony Quayle, Frank Finlay, David Hemmings, Donald Sutherland, John Gielgud and Genevieve Bujold round out the stellar cast. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.
