Steven Spielberg / Lincoln starring Daniel Day Lewis

Lincoln / Blu-ray + UV

Steven Spielberg’s drama focussing on the 16th President’s final days in office. Daniel Day-Lewis’s towering performance won him another Academy Award. The USA and Canada get the bonus of four disc Blu-ray/DVD combo packs

House Of Cards / Complete First Season

House Of Cards / Complete First Season

If you’re not a Netflix subscriber, then you won’t have seen House Of Cards since the political drama (actually a remake of the original BBC TV series from 1990) was exclusive to the on-demand internet streaming service from February 2013. Kevin Spacey is superb as Francis Underwood, the the House Majority Whip who will seemingly do anything to aid his rise through the ranks. Excellent support from Robin Wright as his equally ruthless wife Claire. Highly recommended. This set contains 13 episodes across four blu-ray discs. Many episodes are directed by Seven/Flight Club director David Fincher.

Die Hard Legacy Collection / blu-ray box set

Die Hard / Legacy Collection blu-ray box set

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment update their Die Hard collection to include the last film A Good Day To Die Hard. This six disc set includes all five films in the franchise and a massive amount of bonus material, although if you already own a previous Die Hard collection you’re better off picking up the most recent outing as an individual release, unless you absolutely have to have all the films in a nice box. The Germany edition of this box has cooler packaging.

Paul McCartney and Wings / Rockshow

Paul McCartney and Wings / Rockshow

37 years after the film was shot on the Wings Over America tour, Paul McCartney’s Rockshow film finally gets a release on DVD and Blu-ray. This is the full show (previous laserdisc/VHS/Betamax editions were edited) and it has been fully restored from the original 35mm film with the sound remixed to 5.1.

    Good to see that something is still happening on this site.

    The Die Hard collection isn’t complete until they replace the unsatisfying theatrical cut of Live Free Or Die Hard with the unrated one. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think it is still available on DVD only.

  2. I’m not sure why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
