Holy cow. When it comes to Blu-rays and DVDs, some weeks are quiet while others are filled with a seemingly endless supply of films. This happens to be one of the latter examples, with a massive supply of new releases that include the most popular film of the year (so far). So, if you can’t make it out to the...

Rating: «« out of 4

Running Time: 142 min.

The latest comic book movie to hit cinemas this week is Wonder Woman, part of the DC Universe that includes the likes of Superman and Batman. The good news is that this film is far, far superior to the efforts featuring those superheroes. In fact, the movie is helped tremendously by the fact that previous titles were so poor - this looks phenomenal in comparison. The bad news is that there are still flaws present and that the feature makes a few of the same mistakes as previous DC releases, though not on as grand or epic a scale. In the end, it’s reasonable enough to entertain children and fans of the character.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ provides proper closure to swashbuckling franchise

Running Time: 128 min.

It’s important to know when to say when. Back in 2004, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (based on the Disney theme park ride), was far more entertaining and enjoyable a movie than it had any right to be. However, it was soon followed by increasingly flawed and unmemorable sequels. To be completely honest, I can barely remember the last film.

The latest sequel, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, is still not a return to form. The witty banter and humorous pirate shenanigans remains less-than-razor-sharp and can’t match the original’s charm. Most of the new characters aren’t particularly interesting...
