Justice League – The DVDfever Cinema Review – …And Justice For All?

Justice League

Justice League finds Gotham still in mourning from… (and I hope you’ve seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before reading this!) the death of Superman, and there’s a brief bit of mobile phone footage from February 12th 2015, when he’s asked a number of questions by a member of the public including, “What’s the best thing about planet Earth?”

Well, if this was Buzzfeed, it would be tagged with the headline: “What he says next will shock and surprise you!”

Love Lies and Records Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Kay Mellor

Love Lies and Records

Love Lies and Records is the latest Kay Mellor drama to hit TV screens and sees Ashley Jensen in a welcome return from the US to star in a UK series.

The rather wordy, alliterative and forgettable title relates to the fact that, as Kate, she works in the Births, marriages and deaths department of her local council. She’s also looking for promotion, but disgruntled colleague and stuck-in-the-mud Judy (Rebecca Front) wants, instead, to remind her of a situation she would like to forget, which might scupper her chances.

Justice League leads the new cinema releases and trailers November 17th 2017

Justice LeagueThis week, there are SEVEN new films out for you to choose from: DC superheroes unite for Justice League, Aubrey Plaza takes the lead in an f-word-laden comedy when Ingrid Goes West, there’s a Hungarian psycho-thriller in Strangled, Robert Pattinson and Barkhad Abdi are out for a Good Time, Annette Bening wants to prove to Jamie Bell that Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, a documentary follows big-game hunters in Trophy, and drama takes a tedious turn in Mudbound.

Justice League was originally envisaged as a two-parter movie, but the mediocre response to Warner Bros’ early DC movies, plus not all two-parters doing so well (such as the final Divergent movie ending up as a TV movie), this appears to be on its own. The same is also happening for next year’s Avengers: Infinity War.

Justice League – Why I think I’ll love it

Justice League - Why I think I'll love it

Justice League – am I the only one looking forward to this movie because the critics are ganging up against it?

Telegraph stated the “superhero embarrassment is beyond saving” while Vanity Fair called it “a big, ugly mess”. Meanwhile, the Metro just moaned that they couldn’t print their review today due to the press embargo, and concluded their brief few words “Enough said”, so we know they hate it, too. They also referred to it as the “troubled superhero movie” because it was started by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) who stepped down from the project following the tragedy of his daughter’s suicide. Joss Whedon (Cabin In The Woods, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) took over and 15-20% of the film went through reshoots.

Call of Duty WWII on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Call of Duty WWII

Call Of Duty WWII is the latest entry in a long line of COD titles, and it’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a Call of Duty game, myself. The last one I embarked upon was Black Ops III on the PC, two years ago, but that was so riddled with bugs that I didn’t even see it having been fixed until January 2016, by which time a review would’ve been rather ‘after the fact’ and I was inundated with other things to review.

Before that, I quite enjoyed Advanced Warfare, but I’m not too keen on too much of the futuristic tech, so I left last year’s entry, Infinite Warfare, to Iain to review.

Office Christmas Party on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Office Christmas Party

Office Christmas Party begins with Josh (Jason Bateman) getting a divorce, which is rather handy given that for the rest of the movie, he’ll be dilly-dallying around computer whizz Tracey (Olivia Munn), and if you’re wondering whether or not they’ll get together by the time 111 minutes have passed, it’s not a puzzle that’s as complex as the JFK ‘mystery bullet’ theory.

The company’s run by Clay (TJ Miller in a standard slacker role, which is all he knows how to do), who’s struggling to come to terms with the fact that his sister, Carol (Jennifer Aniston), holds higher value in their company and plans to close his branch down because it’s not meeting its new, unobtainable targets. Plus, like Alan Rickman’s Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Christmas is cancelled… well, the office party is… maybe.

Tesco – ‘Muslim’ Christmas advert – Xmas tree or Xmas twee?

Tesco have come under fire for their 2017 Christmas advert, with the slogan ‘Every Which Way’, because a group of knuckle-dragging morons are moaning about how it features a Muslim family (for all of a few seconds) and how “they don’t celebrate Christmas” when some Muslims will do regardless of what those viewers think, and what difference is it to these complaining boneheads, anyway?
