Ice Cold In Alex 60th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Ice Cold In Alex

Ice Cold In Alex is, before now, a film from which I’ve only seen one scene over and over and over… when John Mills is drinking Carlsberg and everyone else is staring at him.

The M*A*S*H unit in World War II have to get from A to B in the desert, B being the British lines in Alexandria. Captain Anson (Mills) is having to leave behind one of his men, even though he did offer to stay behind, himself. Anthony Quayle puts on a dreadful Afrikaans accent as Captain van der Poel, who tags along for the ride, as does Anson’s colleague Pugh (Harry Andrews) and nurses Diana (Sylvia Syms) and Denise (Diane Clare).

21 – The DVDfever Review


21 centres around Ben Campbell (Jim Sturgess), a young and promising MIT student with a dream of getting a scholarship to join Havard in order to study Medicine and become a professional doctor. Unfortunately, he learns that he cannot raise the required $300,000 fee because of his background.

Out of his desperation, Ben is introduced by his slick Mathematics professor, Micky Rosa (Kevin Spacey), to a group of five students Jill, Choi, Kianna, and Fisher

Outstanding British Film:

Hold The Sunset Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – John Cleese

Hold The Sunset

Hold The Sunset is every travesty I expected, and is an easy wicket for its leads, Alison Steadman, John Cleese and Jason Watkins.

Steadman plays Edith, a retired widow who finds recycling difficult – just like no-one does… and puts them in plastic bags within the bins, rather than just the items themselves (duh!). Oh… and she even throws away the recycling instruction booklet. Such hilarity(!)

BAFTAs and Oscars – why are they so false and unrepresentative of popular opinion?

BAFTAsBAFTAs 2018 are broadcast tonight, with the Oscars not far away, but in both cases, as with other awards ceremonies, all the same sorts of films being up for awards. Frances McDormand is up for Best Actress in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but to me, she’s just the same old same old. Big-name critics like Jason Solomon, Peter Bradshaw and Mark Kermode all somehow loving the same films and performances? Pull the other one.

Gary Oldman is amusing as Churchill in Darkest Hour, but as a film, it’s pretty bad. Even The Shape Of Water and Lady Bird have their faults.

Troy: Fall Of A City Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – BBC drama

Troy: Fall Of A City

Troy: Fall Of A City sadly has nothing to do with actor Troy McClure, who you may remember from The Simpsons, which is a shame because none of this new BBC drama series was available for preview, which rarely bodes well.

Despite that, you can’t get away from the fact that this is an eight-part adaptation of Homer’s classic tale… *oh*, not THAT Homer.
