Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni on PC – The DVDfever Review

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni is a fighter game with a difference – the protagonists are big-boobed females with skimpy skirts and a passion for feeling fruity.

Okay, so this may be an experience others have had before – and it’s a while since I’ve got stuck into a fighting game, but I’m normally bashing robot’s heads together, with the only females kicking and punching being those who are properly dressed for it.

World Enough And Time – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 11 – The DVDfever Review

World Enough And Time

World Enough And Time began with The Doctor doing that fake regeneration crap again, making my heart sink from the off, not least because the two-part finale is brought to you by the combination of Steven Moffat and Rachel Talalay, the latter who was responsible for… er… Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare – the worst Freddy Krueger film ever.

Also, together, they brought you the Series 9 finale of Heaven Sent and Hell Bent, where Capaldi had to spend 2 million years smashing through a bloody wall – it felt that long, too!

Movie Charts UK and US week ending June 18th 2017

Movie Charts UK and US week ending June 18th 2017This week’s Movie Charts UK and US week ending June 18th 2017 are as follows:

Host The Week Episode 1 – Scarlett Moffat – The DVDfever Review

Host The Week Host The Week proves the depths at which TV has sunk to these days by Channel 4 getting the most inept idiot they can find and hoping they can muddle through a programme about the past week’s events without a script, without a rehearsal and without having met any of the guests.

First up, educationally and mentally-subnormal Scarlett Moron-Chav, I mean, Scarlett Moffat, who came to the fore in Channel 4’s Gogglebox. If you thought Host The Week was scraping the barrel dry, then

Transformers: The Last Knight leads the new cinema releases and trailers June 23rd 2017

Transformers: The Last KnightThis week, there are FOUR new films out for you to choose from: Crash/bang/wallop aplenty with Transformers: The Last Knight, Naomi Watts has trouble raising a child genius in The Book of Henry, Isabelle Huppert is a former Eurovision pop star in Souvenir, and Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson are a mismatched couple in Hampstead.

Transformers: The Last Knight is the fifth in the never-ending franchise about toy robots bashing each other to pieces, and Mark Wahlberg returns as the stupidly-name Cade Yeager, although seemingly, Nicola Peltz will not be returning as his daughter, Tessa, and there’s no sign either of the wonderful James Bachman as Gill Wembley, assistant to Stanley Tucci‘s Joshua Joyce who IS returning. Confused? Probably not.

In this new movie, Optimus Prime finds that his home planet, Cybertron, is now completely dead… and it was all his fault. So, he needs to bringing it back to life, and in order to do that… he needs an artifact that just happens to be on Earth! So, he’s on his way back!

To The Bone – Official Trailer – Netflix – Lily Collins

To The Bone To The Bone is a forthcoming Netflix drama starring Lily Collins (right) (Rules Don’t Apply) as Ellen, an unruly, 20-year-old anorexic girl who spent the better part of her teenage years being shepherded through various recovery programs, only to find herself several pounds lighter every time. Determined to find a solution, her dysfunctional family agrees to send her to a group home for youths, which is led by a non-traditional doctor. Surprised by the unusual rules—and charmed by her fellow patients—Ellen has to discover for herself how to confront her addiction and attempt self-acceptance, in order to stand a chance against her demons.

She meets an unconventional doctor, Dr. William Beckham (Keanu Reeves), who challenges her to face her condition and embrace life.

Written and directed by Marti Noxon, the film also stars Carrie Preston, Alanna Ubach, Liana Liberato, Kathryn Prescott, Lili Taylor, and Brooke Smith, and I found this a very charming tale based on the trailer.

To The Bone is released by Netflix on July 14th in the UK and US and I’m really looking forward to this.

Underworld: Blood Wars on 3D Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Underworld: Blood Wars

Underworld: Blood Wars is the fifth in the ‘Vampires vs Werewolves’ action/horror series, only four of which have started Kate Beckinsale as ‘death dealer’ Selene, but if you’re not up to speed, then Blood Wars begins with a very brief potted history of events so far.

For anyone new to the franchise, I would recommend you check out the first four movies initially, but note that the Underworld films never make a great deal of sense, and at times they do drag in the talky bits, but when the action hots up between good guys and girls and the baddies, it’s kick-ass big-time!

Star Trek: Discovery launches September 25th on Netflix

Star Trek: Discovery Star Trek: Discovery launches on Monday September 25th, exclusively on Netflix everywhere excluding the US and Canada.

Brand new episodes will then be available each week on a Monday. The 15-episode season is sreleased in two chapters, the first 8 running up until November 6th, with the season resuming in January 2018.

Star Trek is one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, and returns 50 years after it first premiered with this new series.

It follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

Annabelle 2: Creation – Trailer 2 – Miranda Otto

Annabelle 2Annabelle 2: Creation takes place several years after the tragic death of a girl for a dollmaker and his wife, who then welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, who then soon become the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.

Personally, I haven’t yet seen the first Annabelle, although I have seen both Conjuring films and while they were pretty poor, this film’s new trailer looks like there could be enough in it on a horror scale, similar to the original Poltergeist movies.

Annabelle 2: Creation is released in the UK on August 11th, and initially, according to IMDB, the theatrical ratio is a wider-than-usual 2.55:1, the Cinemascope ratio also recently used by La La Land. However, that stat has since disappeared… spooky!

Director: David F Sandberg
Writer: Gary Dauberman
Cast: Javier Botet, Miranda Otto, Stephanie Sigman, Anthony LaPaglia
