BAFTA 2018: The Winners!

BAFTA 2018The BAFTA 2018 Awards took place tonight. The nominations are here, and the winners are as follows… so there ARE spoilers, since as I post this, the awards are still being broadcast on BBC1:

Best Film:

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (review)

Outstanding British Film:

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

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(!)

The Dark Tower – Win on DVD – COMPETITION

The Dark Tower

DVDfever.co.uk and Paddy Power Slots have teamed up to give you a chance to win a copy of The Dark Tower, out now on Blu-ray, 4K Blu-ray, DVD and digitally.

There is one DVD up for grabs up for grabs in this competition!

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.

World-famous chef and television personality Gordon Ramsay is turning up the heat at Caesars Palace by launching the world’s first Hell’s Kitchen restaurant in Las Vegas. The replica of the kitchen, featured on the hit American reality television show, has already captured the imagination of many visitors to Sin City wishing to dine in a restaurant operated by a chef awarded with 16 Michelin stars throughout his illustrious career. The restaurant, which opened on January 26, was designed in close collaboration with the show’s producers and designers to replicate the atmosphere of the “Hell’s Kitchen” reality show.

The Shape Of Water leads the new cinema releases and trailers February 16th 2018

The Shape Of Water This week, there are THREE new films out for you to choose from: Guillermo del Toro has a aqua-based ’60s tale in The Shape Of Water, Greta Gerwig writes and directs the fabulous Saoirse Ronan as the titular Lady Bird, and Owen Wilson & Ed Helms wastes everyone’s time with Father Figures.

The Shape of Water comes from the mind of director Guillermo del Toro, giving us an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963.

In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Her life is changed forver when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

And this is a Red Band Trailer… which usually means it’s NSFW, aka Not Safe For Work.

Director: Guillermo del Toro
Also stars: Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg, Doug Jones, Richard Jenkins, Lauren Lee Smith, John Kapelos
