DVD Roundup: stamina edition

Joss Wheadon's first Avengers movie well and truly put superhero movies back into the spotlight, bringing together the all the origin stories of Marvel's first wave of films. The Avengers follow up, Age of Ultron, brings loads more characters in, as well as tying in all the other subsequent movies. The result? Something you really need to have some stamia to get through. But what I want to know is, when is the Hulk coming back? Listen to our podcast review here.

WWE: Battleground 2015 is now out to own, with such highlights as the Diva Revolution, Cena vs Owens for the US titles, and headliner Lesnar takes Rollins to Suplex City. Read Richee's review of the event here.

Fifteen years in the making, Aleksei German's three hour epic Hard to Be a God see's scientists sent to a alien planet that is still in what looks to be like our medival period. Sounding a little like Ben Wheatley's A Field in England, this may be a hard going film but one that would be rewarding to watch.

Winning the Oscar for best documentary, Laura Poitras' Citizenfour talks about one of the most controversial issues in recent history, the NSA scandal, and the whistleblower Edward Snowden. Also out is Poitras' 9/11 Trilogy Boxset, which includes My Country, My Country, about an Iraqui doctor, and The Oath, about Osama bin Laden's bodyguard and a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay. If you want to learn more about recent history, look no further.
