- Gangster Squad (2013)
- A brilliant start to 2013. It\'s not quite Goodfellas, but Gangster Squad packs a punch on every level: visuals, 40s set piece, acting props (Penn and Brolin in particular), action. Highly recommended.
$29.95 $14.95 | Blu-Ray $29.95 $19.95
- Good, the Bad, the Weird, The (2008)
- Better than Miike\'s attempt with Sukiyaki Western Django, Kim shows off his visual style, but fails to mix it with anything of real substance.
- Django Unchained (2012)
- One of my top 5 films from 2012, Tarantino shows why he is the master of what he does. This is its own genre. It\'s classic and modern. It\'s serious and touching, moving, tongue–in–cheek, hilariously funny, and fantasy all rolled into one outstanding
- DVD $29.95 | Blu-Ray $29.95
- Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
- A good and a touching tale, and well–acted – but not quite brilliant, and not quite deserving of its Oscar nods. Anticipation and hype did not work this one in its favour for me.

- Cirque Du Soleil - Worlds Away (2012)
- Good–enough to warrant a first cinema screening – particularly for those who have not had the pleasure of experiencing Cirque De Solei in person.
- DVD $39.95 | Blu-Ray $54.95
- Munich (2005)
- A film that could have been brilliant with a closer (and shorter) job in the editing room, Munich packs a real punch but loses itself at several key junctions. Eric Bana is outstanding again.
- Zero Dark Thirty (2012)
- An incredibly intense film – not just because it is wonderfully realistic and gritty picture, but because it represents a sharp snapshot of a particular zeitgeist in our recent past. Highly recommended.
- DVD $14.95 | Blu-Ray $19.95
- Behind the Mask - The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)
- I thoroughly enjoyed Leslie Vernon as a whole – Englund was excellent, the idea was novel, the deconstruction of the genre was refresing, & overall it works. Individual elements could have been better, but I\'d rather leave my overall impression positi
- Cabin in the Woods, The (2011)
- A novel take on horror – trust Whedon to amp the genre up a notch! Pity about the lackluster ending, but all else considered, a recommended, strangely self–aware, sci–fi horror in the vein of Cube.
- Ted (2012)
- Not nearly as funny as I hoped from MacFarlane and Wahlberg, but still has its moments. This is one teddy bear you don\'t want your kids to see.
- DVD $39.95 | Blu-Ray $44.95, $49.95
