Steven Spielberg followed up 1975's Jaws two years later with this superior sci-fi drama that centres around a fine performance from Jaws alumnus Richard Dreyfuss and some memorable VFX.

Blending dark black comedy, stomach-churning gore effects and nail-biting tension – not to mention some slick satire – George A. Romero's 1978 zombie sequel Dawn of the Dead is regarded by many as the pinnacle of the decades-spanning franchise and the genre. And now it's resurrected on 4K Blu-ray...

With every new superhero TV show and movie striving to outdo the last for action spectacle, character overload, moodiness and/or plot complexity, Deadpool perhaps comes as a much-needed breath of fresh air.

Say 'Spielbergian' and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is the film that probably pops into most people's heads. On the surface, it's a simple tale of boy meets alien, boy and alien become friends, boy loses alien, but like all good flicks there's more here than mere story, from the wonderful puppet design and John Williams's spine-tingling score to the script's understanding of its childhood characters and Spielberg's deft direction. It treads a fine line between involving drama and syrupy sentimentality, though.

Director David Yates earned praise for his handling of the final four films in the Harry Potter franchise, so was surely a shoo-in to helm this spin-off flick, adapted for the screen by original author J.K. Rowling.

We're not privy to the reasoning behind Universal's decision to release two Fast & Furious movies on 4K Blu-ray, and not the other five – collectors will be hoping the rest screech around the corner in due course.

From its tortuous attempt to incorporate an 'eight' sound into its original US title (The Fate of the Furious) to its laboured bid to shoe-horn in an old-school race and its truly bonkers finale, this eighth instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise sometimes feels like it's trying too hard. Fortunately, though, some super-slick, energetic and spectacle-driven direction from F. Gary Gray keeps your pulse rate high, while the cast are now so comfortable in their characters that they manage to inject oodles of charm into proceedings.

Martin Scorsese's GoodFellas is one of the director's premium creations – a frenetic, slickly-edited immersion into the life of small-time mobster Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), spanning his childhood in the 1950s up to his disappearance into the FBI's Witness Protection Programme in the 1980s. Along the way, he teams up with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci's gangsters, marries Karen (Lorraine Bracco) and learns how to smuggle pastrami into prison.

For his second Guardians of the Galaxy outing, writer/director James Gunn dials down the plot and ratchets up the banter and visual pyrotechnics. While the results are hardly the sci-fi/superhero equivalent of Raging Bull, they do add up to a mountain of stupid fun, with the returning cast (Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel) – plus newcomers Kurt Russell, Pom Klementieff and Elizabeth Debicki – wise-cracking their way through a plotline encompassing family strife, living planets, deadly drones and vindictive space pirates.
