Not Quite Hollywood (Blu-ray) (2008)

Cover Art Not Quite Hollywood is funny and informative, a must-see chronicle for anybody with so much as a passing interest in "Ozploitation." And you'll more than likely finish the documentary with an enormous list of movies you'll want to check out. The documentary has only been previously available on DVD courtesy of Madman, but now Umbrella have pulled out all the stops for the definitive Blu-ray package. And boy, is it worth it. The doc looks and sounds great, and the special features package clocks in at over ten hours, not including the audio commentary. You can't ask for much more. Highly recommended. .

Cat's Eye (Blu-ray) (1985)

Cat's Eye is an enjoyable Stephen King anthology movie, and though it falls short of brilliance, it's still worth checking out and it does have its fans. Umbrella have assembled a very good Blu-ray release. The high definition video presentation is excellent, far better than expected, and the audio is just as impressive. Throw in a few worthwhile special features, and this set is worth buying, especially if you're a fan of the movie. . Sponsored by DeVoteD.

Batman vs. Two-Face (Blu-ray) (2017)

Batman vs. Two-Face is good-natured and fun, elevated by a game voice cast. It's fitting that West's final motion picture performance was as Batman. Those who enjoyed last year's Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders should definitely check out this sequel. Roadshow's Blu-ray is merely acceptable. The video transfer is littered with compression artefacts and special features are far too light, but the lossless audio is well-encoded. This one gets a light recommendation, but give the movie a watch before buying. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.

Spider-Man: Homecoming (Blu-ray) (2017)

Thank goodness that Sony decided to kill its terrible Amazing Spider-Man franchise and collaborate with Marvel to bring him into the MCU. Spider-Man: Homecoming is an ideal beginning of a new franchise, and I already cannot wait for the inevitable sequels. Spider-Man is finally in good hands. Sony's Blu-ray release is bolstered by terrific video and audio, plus a decent selection of special features. However, the disc lacks a more substantial making-of documentary, and could have done with an audio commentary as well. Perhaps a beefier collector's edition will appear further down the track. Nevertheless, all things considered, this disc comes recommended. . Sponsored by Family Boxoffice.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (3D Blu-ray) (2017)

Disney have delivered a knockout 3D Blu-ray; the conversion is stunning, and the encode is close to flawless. It was a joy to watch on my 4K OLED screen. Audio is first-rate as well, and there is a good supply of extras if you pick up the combo pack with the 2D disc. Highly recommended. . Sponsored by DVD Buzz.

Air America (Blu-ray) (1990)

It's easy to see why Umbrella would choose to finally release Air America on Blu-ray, since it features both Robert Downey Jr. and Mel Gibson. The movie itself is fine, but it never quite takes off, and it doesn't have much replay value. Umbrella's Blu-ray release sports solid video and an excellent audio track, but unfortunately it's entirely bereft of special features. The disc is only worth buying if you like the movie and don't care about extras. . Sponsored by Disk Doctor.
