Clash on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Clash

Clash has nothing to do with the popular London band during the ’70s and ’80s, but is more a clash of cultures and beliefs, and shows quite a rarity in filmmaking in that the entirety of the movie is set in a single location, in this case, a van. The easiest way to set the scene is to give the film’s own opening text:

  • 2011 – The Egyptian revolution ends a 30-year presidency

The Hunt on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Lucas finds out It’s a Mads, Mads, Mads, Mads World…

The Hunt

The Hunt centres around Lucas (Mads Mikkelsen), a middle-aged man who’s divorced and hardly sees his son and who could really use a break in life, but at least he has some good friends and colleagues… at first.

An innocent moment he’d rather forget happens while he’s working at the nursery, which leads to one child making a false allegation of inappropriate behaviour. Working in an establishment like that, theoretically, he could have any number of accusers, so I don’t want to say who or what is alleged since, while I knew the basics prior to watching this, I didn’t know the details which I’m therefore not listing here. Suffice to say, it all serves a shocking blow.

Agents Of Mayhem on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Agents Of Mayhem

Agents Of Mayhem: Some games consider themselves serious and some games don’t. This one slides straight into the latter category. From the publishers of the classic Saints Row series – one for which I haven’t played much – we have Agents Of Mayhem, which I personally feel should be Donald Trump’s political party name.

(DVDfever Dom: Certainly when the Republicans kick him out and he has to form an independent party!)

What Happened To Monday – The DVDfever Cinema / Netflix Review

What Happened To Monday What Happened To Monday? Usually, I’m more familiar with ‘What Happened to Saturday’ when I wake up at 4pm after a night out in Manchester… but I digress.

Set in the 2073, the world has become a futuristic North Korea where overpopulation and famine have led to drastic measures with children being exterminated if you have more then one – although the government claim they’re being put into cryosleep until the world’s problems can be resolved.

As head of the alternative CAB, the Child Allocation Bureau, Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), sets out the “One Child Policy”, which is a bit of a problem with new father Terrence Settman (Willem Dafoe) who has seven bundles of joy to deal with, so he gives them the names of the days of the week

When Movies and Video Games go Hand in Hand

When Movies and Video Games go Hand in HandEver since the dawn of video games there have been tie-ins with movies. Take, for example, the cult classic Robocop, released in 1987. It was set in the (then) near future in Detroit, Michigan which has become a dystopia on the edge of collapse due to high crime and financial ruin with big companies like Omni Consumer Products (OCP) using the chaos to its advantage. The plot revolves around an honest cop, Alex Murphy, played by Peter Weller, who is killed and mutilated in the line of duty. The remains of Murphy are fused with robotic components and his mind is wiped and reprogrammed as part of an experimental program by OCP to replace the Detroit Police Department with robots in order to restore order to the city. The movie follows Murphy/Robocop through his initial deployment and his search for his killers driven by flashbacks of his death that could not be erased.

Quacks Episode 1 – The Duke’s Tracheotomy – The DVDfever Review

Quacks Quacks is so-called because all of those featured a very dodgy doctors. And I *do* need a fix of doctors of some sort, since my favourite soap is off-air for the summer yet again!!!

Leading the surgery at the beginning is Rory Kinnear as Robert, who wants to attempt to break the record for performing a below-the-knee leg amputation, originally done in 92 seconds, while dentist, John (Tom Basden), just *smashes* out bad teeth. Doctors and other forms of medical practitioners, today, would take a more measured approach, but the only measures this lot seem interested in, is the measures of spirits. Yes, they’re all constantly on the lash!

Ozark recommissioned for Season 2 on Netflix

Ozark recommissioned Ozark recommissioned for season 2? Less than a month after the first season aired in full, on July 21st? Yes! Woohoo!

Set in the Missouri Ozarks, it’s the not-so-happy family tale where husband to an angry wife, and father to two annoyed children, Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman, has to launder $8m for dodgy drug dealer Del Rio (Esai Morales) in a place where it will NOT be the least bit easy.
