DVD and Blu-Ray World - Issue 90

Welcome to another fine issue of DVD and Blu-ray World, the UK's top home entertainment mag for those who like their viewing to have a bit of a cult flavour. Our philosophy is to uncover the hidden gems that other mainstream DVD and film mags fail to give much space to. We are also aware of the popularity of old movies among collectors, which is why we have our DVD Retro section to highlight the fine work in this area being done by companies such as Renown Pictures and Optimum. This time round look out for some great interviews with the likes of Tamer Hassan, one of our favourite screen gangst....

Some good news for those of you who have been asking me via this mag about the fate of The Dark Side, the publication that I have been associated with for over two decades now. We know there's quite a crossover readership between DS and this magazine, and many of our readers are into cult horror, hence our freebie DVD giveaways (which are continuing every third issue). Anyway, I'm pleased to be able to announce that Dark Side will be continuing with a new publisher, the same one as DVD and Blu-ray World. My old partner in the business, Ken Mills, has sadly been in poor health of late and felt ....

DVD & Blu-Ray World - Issue 88

Hello there folks, and here we go with another fab issue of DVD and Blu-Ray World. I’m writing these words just after the FrightFest weekend, when I got my own small shot at stardom appearing onstage next to the legendary Texas Chainsaw Massacre director Tobe Hooper. The occasion was a panel discussion following the screening of Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship and Videotape, Jake (Doghouse) West’s excellent documentary on the Video Nasty debacle of the late 70s and early 80s. You can read my thoughts on the documentary elsewhere in this issue, but the discussion that followed was a live....

Hello again cult movie buffs and welcome to the latest issue of DVD and Blu-ray World, which has now well and truly returned to being the publication of choice for movie buffs who like a bit of sex and horror with their home entertainment. We’ve dropped the hardware and games coverage and brought back the salacious Restricted section to refresh the parts that other mainstream mags don’t even tickle. From now on we’ll still be bringing you great cover-mounted cult sex and horror DVDs, but only on a quarterly basis, which enables us to spend more on getting the right kind of titles… Issues witho....

DVD and Blu-Ray World - Issue 86

The appeal of the old Video Nasties remains constant with our readers, so we return to the subject this month with news of an upcoming Nasties trailer disc from our good friends at Nucleus Films. One thing that Nucleus co-head Marc said to me which struck a nerve was that DVD will never be looked back on as fondly as the old VHS tapes. For people of a certain age... who hit puberty just as I Spit On Your Grave and Last House On The Left were turning up on the video shelves... that is most certainly true. Nowadays we live in an age when we can pretty much see anything we want, thanks to the won....

The first time I ever saw a movie in 3-D was back in the 1970s when I went to a screening of an obscure sci-fi flick called The Bubble which had been shot in the stereoptical process. I remember the experience vividly because it gave me a really storming headache that lasted for hours afterwards. Of course things have moved on a lot since then, and recent viewings of Up! and Avatar at IMAX 3-D cinemas haven't forced me to overdose on Ibuprofen. But now we have 3-D TV and I have to say I'm not convinced. Surely the whole point of 3-D is to give the movie an extra dimension, and so in conjunctio....

DVD and Blu-Ray World - Issue 84

I first started writing about home video way back in 1981, and my specialist subject back then was Video Nasties. As a knowledgeable horror fan I was thrilled to get the chance to see movies like I Spit On Your Grave and Cannibal Holocaust in their full uncut glory, but alas the window of opportunity soon slammed shut as the 1984 Video Recordings Act decimated video shops across the country and put all of the small fry distributors out of business. I went on to do a couple of books about Nasties and on the basis of those I was recently asked to contribute to an e....

Hello and welcome to another issue of Britain's fastest-growing home entertainment magazine. We hope you like the new look and layout, which now includes double the amount of Blu-ray reviews plus regular sections on gadgets and hardware.

We've removed our adult DVD reviews basically to enable us to attract a wider readership, but this has also allowed us to include more film-related features, and particularly ones in the area of cult horror which we know our readers enjoy... this month we've got articles on the great George Romero and those always-popular Hammer scream queen....

DVD & Blu Ray World - Issue 82

Hello and welcome this month to a rather different DVD and Blu-Ray World. As you flick through you will notice we have doubled the amount of Blu-ray reviews and added sections on gadgets and hardware.

We’ve also included more features than ever before, but in the process have taken out all of the ‘back of the book’ adult content. Why so? Well, we’re out to give the magazine a more elevated profile in today’s marketplace and taking out the adult gives us unrestricted access to certain shops and export venues that, shall we say, were proving a little difficult to crack ....

Hello again you lucky people and here we are again with a fabulous feast of home entertainment for you in the magazine that always brings you the best in both mainstream and cult entertainment. This month I had the pleasure of interviewing one of my favourite fantasy babes from the 80s, Last Starfighter and Night of the Comet star Catherine Mary Stewart, who still looks very tasty for a lady who has just turned 50. I made no secret of my admiration for her.

"I'd go to the ends of the earth for you," I told her, to which she replied, "Yes,....

Here we go again with another great issue of DVD and Blu-Ray World, the mag that refreshes the parts other home entertainment publications don't even tickle. Thanks for all your letters of appreciation regarding our increased coverage of Blu-Rays. They seem to be coming down in price now, and there are some brilliant genre titles turning up in the medium, such as Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue, reviewed this issue. You'll notice that this month's cover disc has two great movies on it, but only one of them is free. We're trying out an experiment which hopefully will continue on future ....

Another month, and another fine issue of DVD World, the mag that sets you straight on such important cinematic topics as how Deep Throat isn’t a movie about a giraffe. It’s hard to believe another year has gone by, but 2009 was a very tough one. Every time we thought we were making ends meet, they moved the ends. It was hardly a great year for movies, either, with major money-losers like G.I. Joe and Terminator:

Salvation proving once again that an overdose of CGI effects is no substitute for a good screenplay. It’s ironic that two of the year’s most enjoyable films, the brilliant Z....

Hello again kiddies, and here we go with the best in cult and mainstream movie entertainment for your home screen, and first of all you might like to take note that we have listened to your requests and restored the freebie covermounted discs, at great expense to the management it should be noted... the publisher is now spending a year dead for tax purposes. It's only money though, and as a wise man once said, there will always be death and taxes.

Mind you, death doesn't get worse every year. I'm personally cutting back on my spending as Christmas approaches. Last year I told the ki....

Hello and welcome to another fine issue of DVD and Blu-Ray World, the home entertainment magazine that brings you the full lowdown on the latest disc releases, plus loads of juicy interviews, reviews and articles. We've got a cracking lineup this time round, including a preview of The Expendables, a movie that's so packed with testosterone women probably won't be allowed within a mile of it. This is a movie that stars Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke, plus 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin. Just l....

For example, did you know that Dick Van Dyke's real name is Penis Van Lesbian, and despite the evidence in Mary Poppins, he wasn't a real Cockney? Hard to believe, eh? Anyway, as we continue to move into the digital age with the arrival on the scene of bigger and better plasma and LCD screens, we hear the next big thing will be 3D tellies that you can watch without silly glasses, unless you happen to wear silly glasses in ....

Here we are again with another exciting issue of the mag that defines 'copulate' as a tardy police response and 'innuendo' as an Italian suppository. As usual we've got a packed programme of goodies for you, but first of all you may have noticed that we are now called DVD and Blu-ray World, which is our way of keeping the mag up tp date with the newest HD technology.

We've been increasing our Blu-ray reviews every issue anyway and we intend to keep doing this. You'll also note that that this issue is £1 cheaper but doesn't have a free DVD attached. W....

DVD World Issue 74

Hello and welcome to the magazine that asks such penetrating questions as, if love is blind, why is lingerie so popular? You know it may
just be old age creeping on but I'm finding it harder and harder to understand the dialogue in TV shows and movies these days.

I've been watching The Wire on BBC and if it didn't have a subtitle option I wouldn't have a bloody clue about what was going on! Whatever happened
to the good old days of BBC English, eh? And what about all these blockbuster movies that pummel you with surround sound and huge explosions....

Welcome again to the magazine that asks such penetrating posers as, 'If a mute child swears, does his mother wash his hands with soap?', and 'Why isn't Doris Day a national holiday?'

Yes, we're here again with another fine issue of Britain's fastest-growing home entertainment magazine, and as always we've gone that extra mile, which is why we've run out of petrol. But seriously folks, though the country may be in a bit of a state (we just heard on the news that the Government have turned out the light at the end of the tunnel), the movie business is still managing to beat the c....

Here we go again with another great issue of the mag that helps you beat the credit crunch by offering you a FREE DVD with every issue. I hope you're managing to keep your head above water in these hard times. I always pay my bills with a smile, although the problem there is most of my creditors want cash.

There's always someone worse off than you though. I was speaking to a friend of mine in the City the other day, and he has gone bankrupt. He reckons he put too much money into junk blondes. Tell me about it. I've just gone through a divorce from a blo....

When I was a very young lad we never had a television set, so my dad drilled a hole in the wall and we watched the wrestling every night and then we found out the neighbours didn't have a television either. Things are different these days of course because we've all got big widescreen tellies, satellite channels galore, and DVD and Blu-ray players. Add Internet downloads and there's actually too much entertainment to choose from, which is why you need a mag like ours to steer you in the right direction.

This issue we preview the highly controversial Martyrs, out in May from....

Here we go again with another great issue of the magazine that vigorously shakes the parts other mags merely tickle. It's a well known fact that I love horror movies, and I know most DVD Worldreaders do too, so you may notice us upping our genre coverage in the months ahead. This issue, for example, we have major features on real-life Snuff movies and the Italian Zombie Maestro Lucio Fulci for you to get favourites too. In fact I was recently asked If I would like to present a gory movie night at a pub in Brighton called Caroline of Brunswick, and I've chosen the French shocker L'int....

Hello and welcome to another fine issue of DVD Worldand yet another chapter in our illustrious history! You may or may not have already noticed, but from this issue on we have an exciting new publisher, which means that hopefully you'll be seeing the mag out in even larger quantities from now on.

It also means that we have now decided to restore the cover discs starting with a brilliant cult epic this time round that is sure to please all you sinners with dirty habits that includes you, vicar.
