  • If people can't see our rights being eroded bit by bit then they are naive and blind. Laws being enacted to stop people from protesting properly, the right to object, especially with such a right wing government with frightening powers, sorry but…

  • I don't think we can judge Fiennes on SP being is first fully fledged film as M, though he was far from dull in SF as Mallory. He showed such promise there, made you think he'd be fantastic in SP yet like the cast he was shackled with a terrible …

  • I'm pretty happy with TFC on Blu-ray myself, I'm certainly not replacing everything in the format, I have 300+ Blu-ray's and currently over 50 4K UHD's. It will take some proper favourites for me to upgrade in most cases, new titles I will get on…
  • While I'll agree SF & SP looked the best in comparison to the Blu-ray. I liked the look of both CR & QOS, it isn't night and day but still looked pretty vibrant on my 55" OLED. I've heard a lot of people are not impressed what Jackson …

  • I find my Blu-ray's upscale nicely on my 4K Player, I won't be upgrading everything to 4K UH Blu-ray. Though certain films are a definite, the Indiana Jones & Godfather sets when they are released (although KOTCS will gather a lot of dust) …
  • I've just watched Casino, oh my god reference quality, Robert Richardson's cinematography pops more than anytime since I saw it at the cinema. I do still think Goodfellas is superior but the margin is slim and this is still another masterpiece f…
  • Can't say I have had any issues with my LG 4K Player, 4K UHD, Panasonic OLED set up. Watched the new Studio Canal 4K UHD of Escape From New York last night, the detail was astounding, the film has never looked this good, the fact the blacks are s…

  • With Christopher Nolan as far away from it as possible. Tenet proves that Nolan shouldn't even be able to get anywhere near Bond. Maybe before he grew so successful and was new kid on the block but he has believed is own hype and produced an a…
  • Craig blows Brosnan out of the water as an actor, also Craig did what Dalton would have liked to have done if he'd been more relaxed as a cinematic actor. Dalton has his moments but consistently leaves him standing, apart from not being as convin…
  • Tenet is an utter pile of bollocks, comparing it to OHMSS, don't make me laugh. It isn't complex at all, it is evidence that Nolan didn't have a clue how to convey his idea and just thought he'd get away with it because he is Christopher Nolan. …
  • Tenet 2020 As someone who owns the majority of Nolan's back cat on Blu-ray & 4K UHD Blu-ray, I think I can say this as I'm not a hater of his stuff, although I really don't like Interstellar, I thought Dunkirk was amazing. Though Tenet sho…
