Avengers: Infinity War (4K Blu-ray) (2018)
CallumK

Cover Art Avengers: Infinity War is revelatory Marvel Studios entertainment. It's an expansive superhero blockbuster which colours outside of the lines, presenting the hero's journey of the primary villain, while giving us more of the characters we have come to know and love throughout the MCU to date. And it stands up to repeat viewings. Thank goodness Disney/Marvel continue to cater for those who are 4K-compatible. The 4K disc is a huge improvement over the 1080p encode, with firmer textures and superior colours, while the Atmos mix is acceptable despite its hard-to-ignore shortcomings. The set comes with a 1080p disc containing an informative selection of bonus material. All things considered, this one comes highly recommended. . Sponsored by DeVoteD.

Next of Kin (Blu-ray) (1982)
Ray N

Next of Kin is an Australian gothic horror film from 1982 that sank quickly at the time but was later championed by Quentin Tarantino. It has received a 4K restoration on this Blu-ray from Umbrella and comes with genuine extras. When things go bump in the night, is our young heroine going mad or is there something more sinister going on in the house? . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.

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

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)
CallumK

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. .
