Jawbone – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Jawbone tells the underdog tale of former child-star boxing champion Jimmy McCabe (Johnny Harris). His best years are long behind him, thanks heavy drinking and the fact that the council want to evict him from his flat, since the appartment block is being knocked down. He’s refusing because it once belonged to his mother; yes, […]

The Ringed City – Dark Souls III DLC on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

The Ringed City is the final piece of DLC for Dark Souls III, following on from Ashes of Ariandel. To access this, you need to have completed the Ashes DLC, or literally be at the bonfire, just outside the final boss of the the main game. This, as you may well gather, isn’t for the […]

Extremis – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review

Extremis – or, rather, In extremis – is Latin for “in the farthest reaches” or “at the point of death”. How about a load of confusing rubbish that shows Steven Moffat at his most self-indulgent? It really must be his WORST episode since the Xmas one, The Return of Doctor Mysterio – which was Moffat’s […]

Injustice 2 on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Injustice 2 for all!!! Injustice 2 continues the story from Injustice: Gods Among Us, which was an instant hit from Netherealm Studios, who also helm the Mortal Kombat Franchise, taking DC’s greatest heroes and Villains and taking the comic world and twisting it to have the world’s greatest heroes become their greatest Villains. This follow-up […]

Battlezone VR on PC – The DVDfever Review

Battlezone VR is a game I first had a crack at just prior to its PS4 PSVR release, at Play Expo Manchester. I love Virtual Reality and every time I go to that convention, I must partake in a blast of Retro VR‘s Virtuality machines, run by Simon Marston, which first saw the light in […]

Three Girls Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Three Girls takes place over three nights on BBC1 and is based on a true story. The story began with schoolgirl Holly (Molly Windsor) being assaulted in the local ‘Top Curry’ takeaway, her father, Jim (Paul Kaye), not believing her story and insisting they get out of the police station ASAP so they can let […]

Oxygen – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review

Oxygen is the one thing lacking when The Doctor, Bill and Nardole arrive on a spaceship… despite the fact they can walk about due to artificial gravity PLUS they can breathe due to an air seal thing from the TARDIS. The premise is: 4 survivors, one distress call, but originally there were 40 crew members, […]

Alien Covenant – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Alien Covenant could just really be called Covenant, since that’s the name of the spaceship in this movie, like the previous one’s Prometheus… which was just called Prometheus, and not Alien Prometheus… not that it particularly matters because in this eighth (by my count) xenomorph-based movie, it delivers a lot of the sort of thing […]

King Charles III – The DVDfever Review – A perfect epitaph to Tim Pigott-Smith

King Charles III – the title made me think “What? Another labourious period drama? …Oh, hang on, we’ve never had a third King Charles”. And then the penny dropped. Mike Bartlett has adapted his own play for the screen with the late Tim Pigott-Smith in the titular role. It’s a time in the near future […]

Away – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Timothy Spall drama

Away is where everyone wants to get to, once in a while, but here, it’s the mismatched pairing of widower Joseph (Timothy Spall) and ex-junkie Ria (Juno Temple), as they meet in a film which drew me in and I found to be very enchanting. Meeting in Blackpool, fate brings them together as Joseph has […]
