UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e October 27th 2016

UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e October 27th 2016 Going straight in at No.1, in UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e October 27th 2016, is Little Mix with Shout Out To My Ex, but surely you should just forget them? Unfortunaetly, we have to hear about all the girls’ dull love lives in the media. And I couldn’t give a hoot. The song, itself, is the same autotuned dirge you were expecting.

As such, James Arthur drops to No.2 with Say You Won’t Let Go, and it’s puke-inducing, romantic, sloppy trash, which sounds like it was written in 5 minutes. Whoever bought this needs their head read.

There are no other new entries in the Top 10.

New out this week is a new one from The Courteeners – De La Salle, a bit slower than we’d normally expect, but still good.

Mantis Burn Racing on PS4 – The DVDfever Review


Mantis Burn Racing Mantis Burn Racing is the PS4’s first native 4K release and for some, this will mean a lot. For others, 4K is four times better than HD: bigger, better, faster, etc.

First impressions include that the game didn’t take too long to download, which isn’t always a great sign, but as I switched it on, I was greeted to some crisp intro and a banging progressive base-filled track. I was buzzing around the living room, head bumping with my headphones – damn this is how all games should start. I had to admit that I was impressed.

Me Before You – The DVDfever Review


Me Before You

Me Before You – Beware: spoilers in this review (although you can guess them, anyway)

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back IMAX – The DVDfever Cinema Review


Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Never Go Back is the second Jack Reacher novel, written by Lee Child, to be adapted for the big screen, and after being less than impressed when I got Jack Reacher round the first time, I went back for more… and I shouldn’t have gone.

It does start off well, though, in a scene trailered heavily as he turns the tables on some cops, after Jack (Tom Cruise) is arrested for beating up some men, only to tell the law, “Two things will happen in the next 90 seconds – that phone (on the wall) will ring, and you’re gonna be wearing these cuffs”. As it plays out, they’re left asking, “Who the hell are you?”, to which he replies, “The guy you didn’t count on”.

So, this opener really did impress, BUT… it soon began to fall flat.

I, Daniel Blake – Ken Loach’s essential parable for our times – The DVDfever Cinema Review


I Daniel Blake

I, Daniel Blake begins with the 59-year-old carpenter titular character, portrayed by comedian Dave Johns, applying for ESA (Employment and Support Allowance), and being asked a succession of – irrelevant, to him – questions when he just wants to discuss the heart attack that’s led to his doctor signing him off from work until he recovers, such as “Can you walk 50 yards?”, “Can you raise your arms and reach something from your top pocket?”, then another about his fingers, moving onto intimate details about his bowel movements, leading Daniel to retort: “When are we going to stop talking about me arse and start talking about me heart!”

Class Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Doctor Who spinoff



Class is a Doctor Who spinoff, taking place at Coal Hill Academy, which has been the school at the centre of the show since it began with The Unearthly Child back in 1963, where in this first episode – For Tonight We Might Die, this establishment doesn’t solely have a summer prom, like all the others, but one in the autumn. That’s what’s about to happen, here, but baddies are on their way in the form of the the Shadow Kin, which look like something from a role-playing videogames, with fire for a face, and actually looking pretty good for something that’s been commissioned for online-only.

Hated In The Nation – Black Mirror Series 3 Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review


Hated In The Nation

Hated in the Nation, the final entry in the third series of Black Mirror, with cop Karin (Kelly Macdonald) taking the witness stand (or seat, in this court), to recount the events that began on May 15th last year, and which will unfold effectively, and it shows a return to form for the series after the disappointing San Junipero and Men Against Fire.

Men Against Fire – Black Mirror Series 3 Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review


Men Against Fire

Men Against Fire is the fifth, and penultimate, entry in Black Mirror Series 3, and after the disappointment of San Junipero, I was hoping for a return to form. But I didn’t get it.
