As a big fan of director Dario Argento I’ve reviewed most of his work that’s currently available on Blu-ray. In some cases his films have received additional restoration warranting a brand new release. I’ve already reviewed the original Suspiria Blu-ray release but now it’s time to take a look at Cult Films 4K remastered version that’s available now as a dual release (Standard Bluray & DVD). Here’s my Blu-ray review of their 2017 remastered version of Argento’s 1977 masterpiece, Suspiria. I won’t review the actual film as I’ve already done so in my original review.

It’s time to head back to 1996 as I take a look at another of Denzel Washington’s films. This time it’s a war film that also stars Meg Ryan, Matt Damon and Lou Diamond Phillips. The Blu-ray came out in the UK back in 2007 but does that mean its worthy of a purchase and more importantly is the film any good. I mean it should be with that cast right? So without further ado here’s my Courage Under Fire Blu-ray Review. Courage Under Fire (1996) Genre: War, Drama Directed by Edward Zwick Running Time: 112 Mins UK Rating 15
It’s time to take a look at the classic BBC TV series Quatermass and the Pit which has recently been restored and released on to Blu-ray. I’m a huge fan of these sci-fi horror offerings and many of you will remember the Hammer film of the same name and story which is also available on Blu-ray. This time Andre Morrell takes on the role of Professor Bernard Quatermass and somewhat excels in the part. How does the picture quality hold up? After all these episodes were transmitted live by BBC Television between December 1958 and January 1959, well let’s find
The United Kingdom is treated to four more new releases this week following the five from last week. So what’s the big release hitting cinemas this weekend?

Nothing pleases me more than when a cult classic receives some love and attention with a full restoration. The film I’m reviewing here Horror Express has just undergone such work courtesy of Arrow Video. It’s a Spanish horror film starring a fabulous cast that features Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Telly Savalas. Have Arrow put out a must have version? Let’s find out, here’s my Horror Express Blu-ray Review.

Have you heard of Denzel Washington’s 1995 film Devil in a Blue Dress? If you have then you probably already know it’s a rather stylish film noir drama that definitely worth your time. Personally I’d never seen or heard of it prior to my Denzel Washington Blu-ray season. I simply love it when I discover a film that passed me by upon its cinema release but is brought back to prominence via Blu-ray/DVD. In any case let’s take a closer look, so without further ado here’s my Devil in a Blue Dress Blu-ray Review. Devil in a Blue Dress (1995)

Let’s take a closer look at these two films and the rest of this week’s new releases including movie trailers, so without further ado here are the cinema releases 5 April 2019 for the United Kingdom & USA.
