There's some amazing music and films out this week.
For starters, Quentin Tarantino's latest stroke of genius, the Oscar winning Django Unchained is out on DVD, Blu-Ray, and Steelbook. It's a brilliant and brutal revenge Western, with memorable performances from all involved. A real must see and with a fantastic CD soundtrack, as you'd expect, though be warned this 18-rated title contains graphic scenes of violence and strong language.
To celebrate the release we've got exclusive footage, offers, and we're joining in with a Tweetalong with our friends at IGNUK. Check out our special Django Unchained page for details.
Continuing the "bloody" theme, True Blood: Season 5 is out on DVD and Blu-Ray, and it's also available as part of a seasons 1-5 collection. Created and produced by Alan Ball, the storylines are based on the Southern Vampires Mysteries novels by Charlaine Harris, telling of the co-existence of vampires and humans.
The big music news, of course, is the hugely anticipated new studio album from Daft Punk: Random Access Memories. Fresh from the acclaimed no.1 single Get Lucky which was co-written by and features Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, the French House and Electronic Duo have had their fans and media alike purring with anticipation for weeks. This is their first album in eight years, so make sure you get your copy.
From the different end of the musical spectrum is Jamie Cullum with his new album Momentum. This is his sixth album, and he has been much more experirmential, using DIY home demos, iPhone apps, charity shop keyboards, and cassette recorders through the song writing process. Sounds good to us.
