Crisis In Six Scenes Season 1 – Woody Allen – The DVDfever Review

crisis-in-six-scenesb

Crisis In Six Scenes

Crisis In Six Scenes is the new TV project for prolific writer/director Woody Allen, a man who churns out a new film every year, even as he approaches his 81st birthday.

Set in the ’60s, he takes the lead role as Sid Munzinger, a novelist working on a new TV show, and having written a lot of television commercials in the past, but not everyone’s a fan. For example, the series begins with him at the barber shop wanting to get a haircut like James Dean, where he learns the man attending to his hair took ages to read his latest book… because it made him fall asleep.

The Magnificent Seven 2016 – morelike The Mephitic Seven – The DVDfever Cinema Review

the-magnificent-seven-2016-featured

The Magnificent Seven The Magnificent Seven, like Ben-Hur, is another of the current crop of remakes where I’ve never seen any previous version, whether the 1960 movie with Yul Brynner, the late ’90s TV series, or 1954’s original The Seven Samurai, by Akira Kurosawa.

The plot is not a complex affair. It’s the 1870s, the Civil War has just ended, and cardboard cut-out baddie Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard hamming it up), strolls into Rose Creek with his heavies and puts fear into the town, resulting in a burned-down church and the husband of Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett) not coming out of it too well. Revenge is on everyone’s mind.

The Commitments 25th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

the-commitments-25tha

The Commitments

The Commitments is one of those all-time classics. I loved it in the cinema, I loved it on DVD and I’m loving it again on Blu-ray.

It’s the tale of an unlikely band being brought together, against the odds, to sing soul. They bicker, they fight, they fall out, they argue, they fight some more, they practice (occasionally), and it’s all leading up to the gig of their lives, in the hope of being signed by a major label, and with the promise of soul legend Wilson Pickett attending.

The Magnificent Seven leads the new cinema releases & trailers w/e September 23rd 2016

The Magnificent Seven This weekend there are ELEVEN new films out for you to choose from: a Western remake in The Magnificent Seven, Daniel Radcliffe goes undercover in Imperium, there’s low-budget scifi in The Girl with All the Gifts, British cockney comedy in Gangsters Gamblers and Geezers, Scots-based comedy in Scottish Mussel, the Chelsea Flower Show comes up in Dare to Be Wild, tedious family drama in Little Men, Rob Zombie brings us another horror movie in 31, two foriegn dramas – Baden Baden and Aloys, and concluding with a musical number – The Rolling Stones: Havana Moon.

The Magnificent Seven, with its cover version of The Animals’ House Of The Rising Sun, shows that Hollywood’s well of ideas has run dry yet again.

Director Antoine Fuqua (Olympus Has Fallen) brings his modern vision to a classic story (it says here). With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns. As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.

The cast includes Ethan Hawke, Denzel Washington, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Chris Pratt, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Haley Bennett, Matt Bomer, Cam Gigandet, Sean Bridgers, Luke Grimes and Vinnie Jones.

The script comes from John Lee Hancock, Richard Wenk and Nic Pizzolatto, based on the screenplay by Akira Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto and Hideo Oguni.

I’ll go and see this, but I’m in two minds whether or not it’ll be any good.

Hit or Miss? Verdict:
