Security (Blu-ray) (2017)
Security is one for the Blu-ray shelf if you like simple, old-school action movies. It won't appeal to everybody, but I enjoyed the hell out of it. The Blu-ray from Universal Sony features perfectly adequate video and audio, but it's a shame the disc is so light on extras. This one gets a light recommendation, but at sale price.

Big Sick, The (Blu-ray) (2017)
Ostensibly arriving out of nowhere, The Big Sick is an unexpected delight. It's funny, touching and enjoyable, benefitting from a great cast and well-judged pacing. It's easy to see why it earned an Oscar nomination for its screenplay. Roadshow's Blu-ray will surely please fans of the movie. The technical presentation is sound from top to bottom, with excellent video and audio, and there's a pleasant selection of special features to round out the disc. Highly recommended.

Evil Under the Sun (Blu-ray) (1982)
Evil Under the Sun is the third and last Hercule Poirot film made by producers John Bradbourne and Richard Goodwin repeating the formula of an all-star cast and exotic location that had been successful in Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile. This film is not quite to the same standard as the earlier films but the mystery is still fun and Peter Ustinov is more comfortable in the role of Poirot.

Bad Moms 2 (A Bad Mom's Christmas) (Blu-ray) (2017)
Death on the Nile (Blu-ray) (1978)
With the commercial and critical success enjoyed by Murder on the Orient Express it was not unexpected that the producers of that film would try to repeat the all-star cast formula, albeit with a different director and different actor as Hercule Poirot. The result was Death on the Nile which makes its appearance in Australia on Blu-ray for the first time.
