Home From Home Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Johnny Vegas

Home From Home
Home From Home started life as one of BBC2’s rather poor pilots, with Johnny Vegas in the lead role as Neil Hackett, father of a family who up sticks and move to the Lake District (so, very reminiscent of Jack Dee’s Bad Move when he and his missus move to he country).

This first episode was just that original pilot reheated on BBC1, and with two years between then and now, from memory, the only thing that’s changed – other than the sprudced-up titles – is the inside of the Hackett’s home.

Wildling leads the new cinema releases and trailers April 20th 2018

True Horror: Hellfire Farm – The DVDfever Review – Channel 4

True Horror True Horror is a new four-part series of dramatised documentaries, starting with Hellfire Farm, which centres around artist Bill Rich (Adam Leese, above) and his wife, Liz (Amy Morgan), who together with their children, inhabit a haunted farm, presumably not moving in intentionally, i.e. selecting a haunted one, as that would be completely hatstand.

The billing states they experience “a nightmarish crucible of demonic activity”, but – and presented in 2.35:1 for the intended cinematic style – it’s mostly jump scare after jump scare, even if some are quite entertaining.

Avengers: Infinity War – IMAX Behind The Frame featurette

Avengers: Infinity War Avengers: Infinity War will be presented in the largest digital IMAX ratio possible, 1.90:1, on IMAX screens because those involved tell us, in this new A Screen Fit For This Many Superheroes featurette, that this is the best way to watch the film. If this is the case, then why didn’t they make it 1.90:1 for all auditoriums like Justice League did? (well, that was 1.85:1 generally, but 1.90:1 in IMAX, but a slight difference)

Opening up to 1.90:1 for the entire movie isn’t a new thing, as a lot of recent films, including Blade Runner 2049, have done this so that a decent print can still be shown on TV in years to come, if a broadcaster doesn’t want to show them in 2.35:1. That said, rarely are they actually shot with IMAX cameras, and this film has reportedly had the entire movie shot in IMAX.

Rampage – Does It Suck? – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Rampage

Rampage is one of those films I was intially in two minds about seeing. I was caught in the middle of “Well, if I see it, I may as well do so on the big screen as it’ll look better” and “It’s just junk with Dwayne Johnson taking over from Arnie in the role of – as Barry Norman called him – ‘the human special effect'”

It didn’t help at this point that it was another movie based on a videogame and the only ones I can think of that entertained me, in that respect, were the Resident Evil series.

May 2018 bank holidays – when are they in the UK?

May 2018 bank holidays
May 2018 bank holidays, like every May, sees two of them happen – one early on, and one towards the end, but why?

The first is down to May Day, which is always May the 1st, but the May Day bank holiday – aka the Spring bank holiday – always takes places on the first Monday on or after this, and has done since 1978.

Hotel Artemis – Trailer 1 – Jodie Foster

Hotel Artemis
Hotel Artemis is a place run by Jean Thomas (Jodie Foster, in her first movie role since 2013’s Elysium, which I’ve still to catch up on), aka The Nurse.

It’s an ultra-exclusive, members-only hospital hidden in a hotel redolent of faded ’20s glamour. Tough, sharp and utterly fearless, The Nurse (Foster, above, with Jeff Goldblum and Zachary Quinto) treats an assortment of assassins, gunrunners, thieves and gangsters in an unexpected state-of-the-art emergency room capable of providing a new liver with a 3D printer or injecting a patient with nanobots which heal from the inside out.
