Total Recall review (Blu-ray)

It's certainly debatable, but for many of us, Verhoeven's Total Recall is probably the best science-fiction film that Big Arnie ever made.

RoboCop Trilogy review (Blu-ray)

Filmmaker Paul Verhoeven has made some absolute first-rate films in his long career – The Sensualist, Total Recall, Black Book and Starship Troopers are but four that spring to mind...

Average

Basic Instinct (DVD)

The film that spawned a wave of direct-to-DVD sex thrillers, Basic Instinct is still the best of the bunch — but that’s not really saying much.

Good

The Schwarzenegger Collection (DVD)

A four-film box set starring action maestro Schwarzenegger — more recently better known as California's "Governator", but once superbly described by Clive James as "a condom full of walnuts".
