‘Death Note: Light up the NEW World’ is an enjoyable enough sequel to the first two films in the popular anime and live action Japanese franchise.
A strong cast mostly surmounts a storyline that is complex and often confusing, the 4K Ultra HD discs are visually stunning.
The second season of this sci-fi series loses its narrative at times but never its sense of intelligence and visual splendor.
Slow-burning, intense, and taut thriller that grabs you with its understated beauty, high level of intelligence, and powerful performances.
The visual aesthetic, mystery, and inventive use of sci-fi tropes in ‘Beyond the Sky’ will satisfy genre fans
Gilliam draws from his usual surreal toolbox for what is a thoroughly enjoyable joyride through a dystopian, steampunk fantasy world
ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept. is an overwhelmingly cool slow-burner that wraps together a mystery with palace intrigue and slice-of-life
The Blu-ray is barebones but satisfying and the series continues to be well written and well acted.
DCI Cassie Stuart (Nicola Walker) and DI Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan (Sanjeev Bhaskar) return and must uncover the mystery behind who murdered a a nearly perfectly preserved corpse discovered at the bottom of a lake.
Despite a powerhouse cast, this “sex as a weapon” spy thriller flies with wings clipped due to a convoluted script and badly executed Russian accents.
