Competition: Win Room on DVD

   There has been no greater, more profound or powerfully moving film released in cinemas in 2016 than Lenny Abrahamson's Room.

   Earlier this year, in my review, I wrote: "Room is not a film which is simply watched. This is a movie that is absorbed..."

   The multiple award-winning feature, detailing the escape of a young mother and her daughter from captivity in an enclosed "room", is one of the truly great and most original motion pictures of recent years - one which immerses us into a world of euphoric discovery.

   If you have not seen the movie as of yet, I give the highest recommendation possible that you should order a copy when it becomes available on DVD & Blu-Ray on 9th May via Studio Canal.

   I'm not alone in offering my utmost praise either - very rarely do movies receive the critical praise which Room has. Aside from the plethora of five-star reviews it received, Brie Larson triumphed at the Academy Award for her highly emotional performance here.

   If, however, you've already seen the feature, I'm quite confident you'll take no persuading to purchase a copy so as to relive the incredible sensations found across the running time. That the release comes with a director's commentary and a "making of" feature add to the appeal.

   I'm delighted to say that, for those of you looking to get your hands on the movie, I am able to offer two of my loyalest readers a copy for themselves to own.

   How to enter? Keep reading!

  12. Might be a bit controversial this one, but I (just my opinion, not trying to persuade anyone else) feel that Peter Jackson did a great job with adapting the Lord of the Rings Trilogy to the screen, An almost impossible job but a valiant effort, that means I can still read the books and films and enjoy them for what they are.
