The Affair Episode 9 – The DVDfever Review

the-affair-s01e09a

The Affair Episode 8The Affair Episode 9, and in this penultimate episode, we begin with Alison. Despite being in New York where Noah lives, both of them are dicking around town and he has a great idea (not) to take her back to his and bang her in his own bed, and then talk about having their own place in the form of a studio flat which he’d rent out as his own ‘writing space’ to finish off the book. Christ, why am I bothering with this terrible programme? He’s playing an incredibly dangerous game and you know he’s going to get caught out in the end.

After accidentally smashing something in his kitchen, Alison bins it and finds a pregnancy test which confirms Helen’s up the duff. No doubt he has no idea, as he hasn’t mentioned it yet.

They go studio flat hunting, but it’s less a home and more a hovel. No surprise that she hates it. And she calls him on the fact that he’ll never leave his missus, but he won’t admit it. Bleah, this is more predictable than the after-effects of stubbing your toe!

UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e July 9th 2015

July 9th 2015Now, you haven’t misread the title. Yes, the charts are published on a Sunday and normally run up until the following Saturday, so why is this ending on the Thursday?

That’s because the charts and new releases are being announced on a Friday as of the end of this week, on July 10th.

So, for the UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e July 9th 2015, Lost Frequencies climb to No.1 with Are You With, and for the brief two minutes that it lasts, what a whole heap of nothing it is!!

As such, Tinie Tempah feat. Jess Glynne drop to No.2 with Not Letting Go, in the UK Top 100 Music Chart w/e July 4th 2015, and it’s one of the most forgettable pieces of ‘dance’ music I’ve ever heard. Only moments after it’s finished, I can’t remember how it went!

There are two other new entries in the chart – a No.3 with Rita Ora with Poison, plus Krept & Konan feat. Jeremih with Freak Of The Week at No.9.

And if you must, you can hear the Lost Frequencies track below:

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

austin-powers-1-featured

austin-powers

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery places Wayne’s World‘s Mike Myers in the title role of a James Bond spoof. The world is being held to ransom for a considerable sum by Dr. Evil (again played by Myers). If they don’t pay up $100 billion, the madman will tunnel into the earth’s core and set off a nuclear warhead, resulting in every volcano erupting simultaneously and signalling the end of the world.

Before this happens though, the action begins in 1967 and Dr. Evil is overplaying his hand once again. To escape our intrepid hero, he climbs into a cryogenic rocket which takes him into space for the next thirty years. However, he didn’t reckon on Powers’ pursuit, freezing himself in time as well until Dr. Evil returned to Earth.

The Lion King – 2015 Modern Trailer

the-lion-king

The Lion King is the one about a lion who becomes a king… or something 😉

But, you’re asking, why am I posting a trailer up for a film which was released 21 years ago? That’s because Ryan Shukis has cleverly made a great new trailer which – for me – thankfully does away with the godawful Elton John/Tim Rice songs, and does exactly what it says on the tin with the newe ‘modern trailer’. Dare I say that I’ve never seen this film? This trailer actually makes me want to watch it!

Batgirl: A Matter of Family – New Batman: Arkham Knight DLC!

batman-arkham-knight

Batgirl: A Matter of Family is the first piece of downloadable content (DLC) for Batman: Arkham Knight and is a story-driven add-on, set prior to the events of the first game in the trilogy, Batman: Arkham Asylum. You’ll be able to play as Batgirl for the very first time time in the Batman: Arkham franchise.

The DLC contains an all-new location with multiple missions, side quests and secrets! POW!

Plus, there’s a new hacking feature which allows you to progress through the world and solve puzzles, plus and dual-play functionality with Robin for dynamic take-down manoeuvres! BAM!

Ant-Man – Official Trailer #2 – Paul Rudd

ant-manAnt-Man is a Marvel film which has been very long in the making… or, at least, thinking about.

And with just two weeks to go until its release, there’s the second official trailer.

Originally slated to be directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Spaced), he left the project due to creative differences, so the Marvel enterprise went ahead with a new director. Personally, the only ants I’m familiar with are either the old ZX Spectrum game, Ant Attack, or those pesky creatures which fill up my conservatory during the summer, requiring me to buy a bottle of Raid.

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Ant-Man is directed by Peyton Reed (Yes Man, Down With Love, Bring It On) and also stars Evangeline Lilly, Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña and Hayley Atwell, and is released in the UK on July 17th.
