Gary Couzens has reviewed the Region 2 release of Gallipoli, Peter Weir's film about friendship, starring Mel Gibson and Mark Lee, set against one of World War I's bloodiest battles. An engrossing, often funny, finally poignant film given a good picture and a 5.1 remix but not much in the way of extras on Paramount's DVD.

Dave Foster has reviewed the Region 2/4 release of Game of Death. The last Hong Kong Legends Bruce Lee film release is their best package yet that comes with the HKL Platinum Edition seal of approval. Fortunately this otherwise lacklustre film is saved by the explosive fight sequences and a superb range of extra features.
Dave Foster has reviewed the Region 2/4 release of Game of Death 2 (aka Tower of Death). Although this is an obvious cash-in opportunity Game of Death 2 aka Tower of Death is a fine martial arts film in the traditional style that is unintentionally humorous but all the more entertaining for it. The DVD is superbly put together by the Hong Kong Legends team and offers the same high standard of restoration work and extra features that we have come to expect from them.
Dave Foster has reviewed the Region 2 release of Game On Series 1.
