Independence Day: Resurgence (Blu-ray) (2016)
Ray N

Cover Art Director Roland Emmerichís Independence Day was big, loud, jingoistic and dumb, but it did destroy the White House, made a mint and had Will Smith. Now comes Emmerichís sequel Independence Day: Resurgence, which is bigger, louder, dumber and just as jingoistic, but without Will Smith. Is it worth watching to see the world saved again? .

Dish, The (Remastered Blu-ray) (2000)

The Dish is a true gem. It remains a superb Australian movie bolstered by witty writing and great actors. Anybody who likes The Castle will sure to find value in this one. Fans of the movie can rejoice, for we finally have a proper Blu-ray release on our hands, and it's a real keeper. Making use of a full remaster, the movie looks and sounds better than ever, while there is a nice supply of special features. In short, this is the release I've been hoping for. (And what we should have gotten in the first place.) Rush out and buy this one if you like the movie! . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.

Silver Bullet (Blu-ray) (1985)

An effective and enjoyable Stephen King adaptation, Silver Bullet deserves its minor cult status. Fans can rejoice, for this is the Blu-ray that you've been waiting for. While not flawless, the Blu-ray presentation is perfectly adequate despite noticeable compression. Nevertheless, Umbrella have really stepped up their game in terms of special features, commissioning a brand new selection of interviews and commentaries, on top of compiling archival material. It's just about everything that a Silver Bullet fan could want (short of a Gary Busey interview), making this an easy recommendation. . Sponsored by Atlantic DVD.

Doctor Who-Shada (Blu-ray) (1979)

This set contains a serial from Doctor Who which was never completed in 1979 due to strike action. It has been pieced together from the original footage, new animations, new effects plus a new scene shot in 2017. Certainly worth seeing for fans of the series and owning for completists, however, it is not the greatest Doctor Who adventure ever shot. As a Blu-ray set though it is excellent. .

It (Blu-ray) (2017)

An excellent adaptation of the source novel, It is an outstanding horror movie as well as a touching coming-of-age drama bolstered by top-flight technical specs. Stephen King himself has expressed his admiration for the movie, and it's not hard to see why. And now we wait patiently for the sequel. On Blu-ray, It is a major winner. Excellent video and audio do justice to this new horror classic on home video - even with a 4K alternative, I was still left incredibly impressed. Unfortunately, special features are a bit light, but what's included is still of a high quality. Talks of an extended cut persist, so perhaps we will get a more comprehensive Blu-ray package in the future. Until then, this one comes highly recommended. . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.

Doctor Who-Twice Upon a Time-2017 Christmas Special (Blu-ray) (2017)

To my mind, this is the best Christmas special yet in the new Doctor Who. A great sendoff for Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie and Stephen Moffat. . Sponsored by Atomic Movies.
