BAT­MAN: THE

KILLING JOKE Disc As Zack Sny­der seems hell­bent on de­stroy­ing the live ac­tion movie ver­sion of Bat­man, let’s all em­brace the an­i­mated ver­sion of ar­guably the great­est Joker story ever told. A dark, twisted and ex­tremely fucked-up tale in which the Joker crip­ples heroes and tor­tures the good guys. Holy sadism, Bat­man! THE JUN­GLE BOOK

Disc Dis­ney’s on a roll with its live ac­tion re­makes, but no one could’ve ex­pected Jon Favreau’s fam­ily ad­ven­ture to be as mov­ing, joy­ful and spec­tac­u­larly stun­ning to look at as it ac­tu­ally was. Idris Elba’s dodgy ‘gu­vnor’ Shere Khan aside, this is come. THE GET DOWN Stream Baz based around the “birth of hip-hop, punk and disco”. Throw in a dash of bonkers Jaden Smith and you have a recipe for a se­ries ev­ery bit as colour­ful, soul­ful, mu­si­cal and un­pre­dictable as Luhrmann’s best movie work. THE HUNTS­MAN: WIN­TER’S WAR Disc Yes, it was com­pletely unasked for. Yes, it ’s all a bit of a mess sto­ry­telling-wise. Yes, no one cares about the dwarves. But on the ma­jor up­sides, there’s ab­so­lutely 0% Kris­ten Ste­wart and an ap­prox­i­mate 82% in­crease in Chris Hemsworth top­less/look­ing dirty and griz­zled scenes. HARD­CORE HENRY

Disc This ri­donku­lously OTT video game mad – but a di­vert­ing DVD ren­tal if you’re into your FPS vi­o­lence porn.
