Ultra-HD Blu-ray Movies
This sequel to the original masterpiece remains as one of the best demo disc releases to date. The movie is visually stunning, particularly during aerial sequences and close ups. The Dolby Atmos track is superbly haunting and atmospheric. The bass levels during the early scenes will be sure to shake your foundations!
The movie itself is just a bonkers frenzy of action and mayhem and is a great tribute to the the original trilogy, especially Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.
The movie looks fabulous in 4K and the Dolby Atmos track is superb. The bass is particularly powerful and will certainly impress the action junkies!
Technically this movie is one of the best available in the format. The visuals glorious with vibrant colours and crisp contrast. The Dolby Atmos audio track is reference level including the use of front wide channels if they are available in your system. The musical score is haunting and powerful throughout. Fans of the film are in for an audiovisual treat for sure!
Ford and Ferrari roar onto our screens at home on this reference title that looks fantastic and sounds even better. The Dolby Atmos audio track is detailed and full of al the grunt and dynamism that we expected.
This movie has to be one of the most entertaining family musical of modern times. The visuals are vibrant and the audio track is very impressive. Everyone has their favourite songs but the highlight for me is the opera performance. Turn it up loud… goosebumps every time!
Blu-Ray Concert Discs
This memorable concert features many famous movie scores, performed by some of the world’s best musicians with Hans Zimmer at the helm. The Dolby Atmos track really allows the concert to come to life in the comfort of your home. The performance of the Madagascar is just brilliant.
This is one of the best music demo discs on blu-ray, featuring the band’s most loved songs during their 2004 tour. The DTS-HD audio is superb. My favourite is the trumpet introduction to Hotel California – brilliant demonstration for high and midrange frequencies in your audio system.
A wonderful selection of performances recorded in 2008 by Chris Botti and friends, including Sting. The Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track is crystal clear and dynamic. If you love jazz music and want your audio system to sing, you have to play this.
Xbox One Games
The original developers have smashed it again with their latest release, this time in super smooth 4K. Visuals are crystal clear and the movie sequences look fantastic. The real gem is the exhilarating Dolby Atmos audio – bullets whizzing, explosions booming, helicopters flying overhead… the action just sounds so incredibly realistic that you’ll end up reducing the volume!
Whilst Star Wars fans were all awaiting the release of the epic finale, at least we could enjoy becoming Jedi Warriors on our TVs! The game is visually stunning with some great cinematic sequences. The Dolby Atmos track sounds superb with music that is so familiar to the theme and of course, who doesn’t want to enjoy the humming and thrashing of a lightsaber?
The recent Tomb Raider games have remained a fitting tribute to the original series however, Lara’s missions are much more dangerous and action packed than ever before. Visually this game is stunning and there is so much detail in the landscapes from valleys and waterfalls to beautifully rendered temples and villages. The Dolby Atmos audio track is wonderfully atmospheric in jungles and caverns. And when the action erupts, you know it!
