The 4K picture quality (of Life) is unparalleled. Sharp and so well defined, each little drop of blood floating in space is amazingly detailed. Each tentacle on the alien organism is unique and it’s hideous “face” adds to the terror. The Dolby Atmos audio is also terrific and enhances ones viewing pleasure.
Batman Lego Movie
Very funny moments happen throughout (the Batman Lego Movie), so you can’t help but walk away afterward with a smile on your face. There are the occasional lighthearted jabs and the inside jokes for those well versed in the superhero world but even little ones who don’t know the hints will still love the film.
The Vampire Diaries Season 8
The acting is exactly what we have come to expect from these actors the last 8 years and they stay true to form. The various directors, including Somerhalder, Wesley and series creator Julie Plec (The Originals), seamlessly move from one episode to the next without losing the feel of the season.
John Wick, Chapter 2

With a background in stunt choreography, director Chad Stahelski uses his knowledge well, using the fight scenes to move the story along to a conclusion that isn’t wholly surprising, but the end scene does set the third movie in the series up quite nicely.
Beauty and the Beast

Disney is on a role with their movies, both animated and live-action, and the production value is part of the reason why. The time taken to create the set pieces that come to life and all the special effects sequences are incredibly done and, though they had the potential to, don’t seem cheesy or fake in any way.

The Digital HD comes with one exclusive bonus feature- Celebrating Tyrus Wong. This is almost a nine-minute bonus of how Mr. Wong's life and art influences Bambi. This is a unique opportunity to really see what went into the actual creating of Bambi.
