Skyfall – We’re probably in the minority when we say that the adventures of James Bond don’t particularly interest us, but the rollicking success that is Skyfall even managed to somehow win us over. Roger Deakins’ beautiful visuals, coupled with Sam Mendes assured direction to create one of 2012’s great crowd-pleasers. Equal parts homage to fifty years of 007 and straight thriller, Skyfall is as entertaining as Bond gets.

Steel – Most notable for the inclusion Jack Cardiff’s long thought-to-be lost short Steel! this two-disc set celebrates “a century of steelmaking on film” if the subtitle is to be believed.
