Film Reviews and News selects from recent Blu-Ray/DVD releases

Lady Macbeth review film poster
Lady Macbeth
Florence Pugh's top of the form, terrific, ruthless, self-possessed and determined to trawl the depths to retain her position.
The Sense Of An Ending review film poster
The Sense Of An Ending
A great cast and Jim Broadbent's centre piece, terrific but annoyingly the film drops into underdrive in the final quarter and lacks the hit and passion it deserves.
Their Finest review film poster
Their Finest
A sit back, relax, smile and enjoy, period comedy drama. And who steals the show? Bill Nighy of course. He's a hoot. Don't miss it.
