The Machinist Review

The Machinist, made infamous by Christian Bale's massive weight loss, has been brought to the UK on a region free disc by Tartan, and comes complete with some exclusive extras. Matt Day takes a look to see if the movie is worth talking about once you get past Bale's skeletal appearance.

Gone In 60 Seconds: Director's Cut Review

This new cut of the flashy Jerry Bruckheimer production has just hit the streets, Matt Day takes a look to see if it can breathe new life into the movie, and how it shapes up against the already available R1 release, and the previous UK release of the theatrical cut.

Scrubs Season 1 Review

Matt Day has taken a look at the R1 release of the first season of Scrubs, the excellent medical comedy starring Garden State's Zach Braff. Sadly the DVDs aren't technically the best, but it isn't enough to stop this show from shining.

Hitch Review

Matt Day has taken a look at the R1 release of the Will Smith starrer, Hitch. He claims he can get you the girl of your dreams in just three dates, and with a guarantee like that, is it any wonder that love turns out to be pretty predictable?

Ocean's Twelve Review

Goerge Clooney finds himself another conspirator in this follow up to the hugely successful Ocean's Eleven, but while it was guaranteed both big box office and big sales on DVD, can the team reunite to guarantee the same quality as the original? Matt Day is dubious...

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou Review

Wes Anderson's sea-bound oddity has found its way to DVD thanks to Buena Vista and Criterion. Available in both single and double disc editions, Matt Day takes a look at the latter to see if Anderson has managed to maintain his quirky charm.

Sideways Review

Alaxander Payne's follow up to the acclaimed About Schmidt is Sideways, starring Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church. It has garnered just as much acclaim as his previous work, along with a clutch of awards, and Matt Day has taken a look at the DVD to see if it deserves similar accolades.

Team America: World Police Review

The R1 release is out on May 17th, but the latest offering from the South Park creators - Team America: World Police - will be released in the UK on May 23rd, Matt Day takes a look at the disc to see if it's worth waiting for.

The Woodsman Review

Matt Day has taken a look at the R1 release of The Woodsman, in which Kevin Bacon stars as a sex offended fresh out of prison, trying to make his way in a world he's been away from for 12 years. Unsurprisingly the film has grabbed a few headlines, but aside from the touchy subject matter, is there anything worth talking about?

Elektra Review

Someone at 20th Century Fox really likes Jennifer Garner, the studio demanded Daredevil be edited so she spent less time off screen, and her character - Elektra - had her own movie greenlit faster than you can say "Daredevil 2..? don't call us." Matt Day takes a look at the R1 release to see if the confidence was justified.

Daredevil Director's Cut Review

It's taken a while, but the Director's Cut of Daredevil arrives in the UK on the 2nd of May, a few weeks before it's spin-off, Elektra, is released. He'll be taking a look at the R1 release of Elektra later today, but first Matt Day checks out the new version of Daredevil and finds it might be worth considering, even if you didn't enjoy the film first time around.

Save The Green Planet Review

Tartan have released one of the most genre-bending movie of recent years, Korea's, Save the Green Planet. Its twisted world defies categorisation, and it has come to the UK in a fine 2 disc set that's certainly worthy of your time, well, if you have the stomach for it. Matt Day explains why.

Top Gun Special Edition Review

It's been a long time coming, but this week saw the release of Top Gun Special Edition in the UK. OK so it's still the same slice of cheesy all-American patriotism, but it still ranks as one of the best popcorn flicks and now has a DVD to die for. Matt Day checks out the release, c'mon, who wants to be his wingman?

Alfie (2004) Review

After a less than astounding performance on both sides of the Atlantic, Jude Law's Alfie makes its way to R1 DVD in the form of a special edition that far outstrips its UK counterpart, but was its limp box office justified, and do the extras make a purchase worthwhile? Matt Day takes a look, to see if Alfie is as irresistible to DVD collectors as he is to the ladies.

Dead Man's Shoes Review

Nominated for Best British Film at this year's BAFTAs Shane Meadows' latest film is rather different from the average awards fodder. A brutal, uncompromising story of revenge starring, and co-written, by Paddy Considine. Matt Day takes a look at the R2 DVD, released on the 21st of March.

Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance Review

Tartan have re-released Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance to coincide with the release of Chan-Wook Park's acclaimed follow up Oldboy. The original release was reasonable, but is this a justified double-dip? Matt Day decides.

The Manchurian Candidate Review

Matt Day has taken a look at the remake of The Manchurian Candidate, available now on R1 DVD. This Denzel Washington thriller updates the Communist paranoia plot on the Frank Sinatra original to more relevant settings, but can it hope to match the original's quality?

Alien vs. Predator Review

Matt Day has taken a look at the R1 release of Alien vs. Predator. The long awaited meeting of two beloved movie franchises sees Paul W.S. Anderson do for the comic books what he did for computer games with Resident Evil.

Angel: Season Five Review

After 7 years of Buffy and 5 years of Angel, Joss Whedon's Sunnydale universe gets its final outing on DVD today in the form of the R2 release of Angel Season 5. Matt Day takes a look at the swansong, and crosses his fingers for a network picking up the show again.

Garden State Review

Matt Day has taken a look at the R1 release of Garden State. The film was hard to track down in UK cinemas, and isn't due out on DVD on this side of the pond for quite a while, so read on to see why you shouldn't wait any longer to see this.
