DVD Roundup: Thor, god of hammers edition

Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok contains much of his humour, and all for the better. With some wonderful one liners and brilliant set-ups, Ragnarok may perhaps be if not one of the best, certainly one of the funniest Marvel films. Mix in with that some excellent visuals, and you have truly one of the most enjoyable films of 2017. Listen to our full podcast review in the player below.

Featuring a slew of British and American comedians, and directed by The Thick of Its Armando Iannucci, The Death of Stalin pulls no punches in its targets. Indeed, the film has already seen trouble in Russia for even being screen. So, a comedy that controversial is worth seeing.

Did we really need another interpretation of the Poirot classic Murder on the Orient Express? One of the most famous crime drama's out there, the ending is familiar to most people, so this film will be of interest to those mainly that prefer that now seemingly archaic method of murder-mystery storytelling.

Urgh, did we really need another Saw film? Working as kind of like a soft-reboot of the franchise, Jigsaw is the eighth film in the franchise, focusing on a set of copycat killings by the notorious killer, or are they by Jigsaw himself? Well, if you like the Saw films, I'll guess you'll like this too.
