A decade of Marvel movies has led to this epic superhero teamup. Was it worth the wait?

Considering how many characters and narrative threads this third Avengers film carries, it works pretty well. It's solid entertainment from start to finish, and finds time for some genuinely funny banter.

A Quiet Place is a finely-crafted horror film that, while ostensibly about a world terrorised by blind monsters that hunt with an over-developed sense of hearing, actually centres on a family dealing with tragedy.

Jurassic Park needs no introduction, although it's difficult the believe it's been 25 years since its digital dinos ushered in a new era of VFX. Michael Crichton might have recycled Westworld for the theme-park-gone-wrong plot, but Steven Spielberg's assured direction resulted in a film as entertaining as it was astonishing.

The latest Marvel movie to arrive on 4K Blu-ray gives us our first glimpse of the Black Panther's home world of Wakanda, after the character debuted in Captain America: Civil War. A huge hit at the box office, and an equally huge discussion point on social media due to its almost exclusive focus on black characters, it's ultimately a bit hit-and-miss from a simple filmmaking perspective.

Bay-baiting has become something of a sport when it comes to the clanking titan that is the Transformers franchise, but for all its faults the series is nothing if not visually audacious. Transformers hasn't just pushed the VFX envelope, it's nuked it clean into orbit. And here, in remastered 4K form, the often astonishing work of ILM and assorted visual effects shops is given a spectacular platform to impress.

Westworld stretches the term 'original series', as for this sci-fi Western HBO has simply reimagined the 1973 Michael Crichton flick of the same name. Yet it's successfully taken that film's premise (a Wild West-themed 'park' populated with androids), flipped it so the audience focus is mainly on the A.I. rather than attendees, and expanded it into a layered narrative spanning this first 10-episode season and at least a second run due to air in 2018. Even if the Yul Brynner movie didn't float your boat, this is worth a watch.

If you’re one of those people who take your Marvel superheroes a bit too seriously, you might not like Thor: Ragnarok.

As far as comic book superheroes go, Spider-Man ranks right up there alongside Superman and Batman when it comes to name recognition. Yet unlike those DC heroes, if you discount theatrically-released re-edits of the '70s TV series, rights issues meant that Marvel's webslinger had to wait until the start of the 21st century to make his bigscreen debut.

After painstakingly eroding the charm of the first Pirates Of The Caribbean film with three increasingly leaden sequels, Disney here tries to reboot the franchise by pretty much remaking the first one, with a bit of the second thrown in for good measure.

Studio rights shenanigans have given us so many Spider-Man films in the past couple of decades that your heart is probably sinking at the thought of watching another one. But by going back to the character's comic book roots and adding Spidey to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: Homecoming does genuinely bring something new to the table.

It's almost impossible to imagine Francis Ford Coppola's extravagantly bonkers adaptation of Dracula getting made today. It's just too out there. Which means, of course, that it's a cult classic.

If you're expecting the latest …Planet Of The Apes to be an all-out, action-packed war film, you're out of luck. Instead you get the new trilogy's most intimate focus yet on lead ape Caesar. And for the most part, we're just fine with that. Okay, so this narrow focus sometimes leaves the film's human antagonists feeling a touch under-developed. However, the result is still an emotionally rewarding and visually stunning film if you buy into what it's trying to do.
