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

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 […]

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 […]

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

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… […]

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

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 […]

Lady Bird – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Lady Bird is another film selected for potential BAFTA and Oscar glory, yet is also another film that’s less than the sum of its parts, which is a shame, as Saoirse Ronan is superb in the titular lead as Chistine “Lady Bird” McPherson, and upon calling herself that, when questioned in the convent at which […]

Lost Sphear on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Lost Sphear is out now on PS4, and in times of turmoil and uncertainty, we always know that Square Enix will keep those RPGs coming. This is a game from the developers of I am Setsuma, which was an enjoyable adventure that ended up getting a little tedious come the later hours. The director had […]

The Shape Of Water – The DVDfever Cinema Review

The Shape Of Water centres around a weird water-dwelling creature which, on first encounter, almost thuds through the container it’s within, giving every unspecting Tom, Dick or Harriet a fright. Elisa Esposito (Sally Hawkins) and Zelda D Fuller (Octavia Spencer) are the facility’s resident cleaners, the former being a mute and the most curious about […]

Monster Energy Supercross on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Monster Energy Supercross is the type of game I haven’t played in a while, and the way it plays when it comes to leaping over humps in the ground, must date back as far as Enduro Racer in the arcade and, a bit later, on the ZX Spectrum. The basics haven’t changed too much, and […]

The LEGO Ninjago Movie 3D on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The LEGO Ninjago Movie begins, unlike The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie, with a live-action piece and a mysterious story where store owner Mr Liu (Jackie Chan) introduces a young boy into the world of Lloyd, alongside Master Wu, the latter also voiced by Chan – and then it’s off into LEGO land. […]

Collateral Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – John Simm, Carey Mulligan

Collateral is a new four-part drama which begins with one situation, but then moves on quite neatly bringing in a slew of other characters, which is a little dizzying but still highly engaging. After pizza delivery guy Abdul (The State‘s Sam Otto) is picked at the last minute to take out some food to single […]
