Free Fire on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Free Fire has a simple premise – an arms deal goes wrong. Tetchy people with itchy trigger fingers lead to guns being shot when it really wasn’t necessary, as everything was almost about to go smoothly, despite gun dealer Vernon (District 9‘s Sharlto Copley) supplying the wrong type of weapon. Set in 1970s Boston (but […]

Personal Shopper on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Personal Shopper is one of the weirdest films I’ll see all year, so the quirky and incredibly alluring Kristen Stewart makes for a perfect fit as Maureen Cartwright, a personal shopper for demanding model boss Kyra… and that’s a boss who’s a model, not a ‘model boss’. As I said, Kyra’s demanding, in fact, to […]

A Quiet Passion on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

A Quiet Passion looks at the life of American Poet Emily Dickinson, portrayed as a young schoolgirl by Emma Bell, but as events move forward into adulthood, the bulk of the movie sees her played by Sex and the City‘s Cynthia Nixon, who is the best thing about this and is certainly a great actress. […]

David Lynch: The Art Life – The DVDfever Cinema Review

David Lynch: The Art Life is a new documentary from the filmmaker which is basically watching him paint and sculpt in his backyard, while background narration sees him talking about his life, filled with many childhood experiences from his earliest memory onwards, including how the family moved about a lot, from one small town to […]

Stormy Monday Special Edition on Blu-ray and DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

Stormy Monday takes place during America Week in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, so events will be carried out over more than the one day that the name might imply. (Yes, it’s title of the 1948 song from T-Bone Walker, which appears in this film courtesy of the late BB King, but allow me that intro) As is admitted […]

Pulse Special Edition (Kiyoshi Kurosawa) on Blu-ray and DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

Pulse is a Japanese horror film from 2001 which didn’t see a release in the US until as late as November 2005, and this release has been pending on Arrow’s books for a fair while, but fans will be pleased that it’s now released and with the usual slew of extras. In a city where […]

Spider-Man Homecoming – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Spider Chic or Spider Shabby?

Spider-Man Homecoming reboots the Spidey franchise to fit in with all the Marvel Avengers movies, after Andrew Garfield’s turn was cut short of a potential third movie (a shame, since 2014’s sequel was a definite improvement on his 2012 suit-wearing debut) So is this new change resulting in Spider Chic or Spider Shabby? With all […]

Transformers: The Last Knight – the best IMAX 3D experience of 2017 – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Transformers: The Last Knight is the fifth in the possibly-never-ending series of films based on the Hasbro toys… I say ‘possibly’ because with the diminishing returns that this installment has brought in, it does question whether the next two films, pencilled in quickly for June 2018 and June 2019 – the former being a Bumblebee […]

Baby Driver – a Big-screen Must! – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Baby Driver is another of those heist films where the protagonist has to complete just one more job, and he’s out… and you’ll just know that there’s no escape, since why would a bad-guy boss let you go when you’re so damn good at your job? However, don’t let the initial premise put you off, […]

Okja – The DVDfever Review – Netflix

Okja is a film that had an initial trailer which made me unsure as to whether it would be good or bad. When I saw the film, it could well be my favourite of the year. What you might not know is that in New York, 2007, Nancy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) gave a press conference […]
