DVD Roundup: Killer Model edition

This summer was pretty much a non-starter when it came to the movies, with many being mediocre at best. For me, the best film of the summer was Nicholas Winding-Refn's divisive The Neon Demon. Its based in LA, so its summery, its got a intense EDM soundtrack, and, you know, murder and other violent things. Definitely not for everyone, but if your like your B-Movies to look like A-Movies, then this is the film for you. Check out our full podcast review in the player below.

OK, let me say here, you'll enjoy Central Intelligence if you like Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson. There's nothing wrong with them in this film, its just they're the only things going in film. The plot is generic, but if you're looking to laugh at a fairly decent double act, then you'll enjoy this. Listen to our full review in the player below.

Unfortunately, there are some stories that, through the prism of history, start to look a little outdated. Tarzan is one of the stories, and The Legend of Tarzan is one of those films that doesn't seem to help themselves. There's colonial problems at don't bode well, but, hell, this might be one of those summer blockbusters that might just entertain enough.

Now this seems like a strange film I'd wanna see: Elvis & Nixon is based on the real life meeting between the two men, and, seen as the meeting was kept secret for over a month, fictionalises what was said between them. What we do know is that Elvis wanted to become an agent of the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, despite that positioning not existing. However, Nixon wanted the meeting, so he could seem down with the kids. Very strange, and very intriguing.
