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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Unlocked – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Unlocked stars Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, Rupture) as Alice Racine, a CIA agent who had her fill of the frontline action when an operation in Paris, 2012, resulted in lot of civilian casualties. She hasn’t been able to properly get herself back together since then, so takes a desk job in the immigration dept of London’s […]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is kinda stuck in the past…. 2014, to be precise. It’s a bit like Rogue One in that it hops from planet to planet at the start before settling down, but starting off with a pre-credits scene on Earth – Missouri to be precise – and in 1980 when Peter’s […]

Catfight on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Catfight is a film which didn’t grab me from the trailer, despite anything featuring feisty Asian women usually fits right up my street, but then the Blu-ray arrived, so I thought I’d check it out… After all, there’s a chance I could be wrong. Kip’s (Giullian Yao Gioiello) parents don’t encourage him in any way […]

Notes On Blindness on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Notes On Blindness is now out on Blu-ray and you might be thinking… hang on, didn’t that come out last year? Well, yes and no – yes on DVD only, as while it rightly had critical acclaim as a film, no-one at Artificial Eye had the confidence to release the film on Blu-ray, too. Thankfully, […]

It’s Only The End Of The World on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

It’s Only The End Of The World centres around Gaspard Ulliel as Louis, who made a name for himself away from the family home as a writer, but as this film begins – and after 12 years away, he’s taking one last journey home to tell everyone that he’s dying from a terminal illness. His […]

Fast And Furious 8 out of 10! – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Fast And Furious 8 – aka The Fate of the Furious – is the… er… eighth film in the fast-driving franchise, and is the first one I’ve actually seen. I never got into them when they began, and then tried to watch No.6 when it was on Channel 4 (since ITV never showed the first […]

Free Fire – The DVDfever Cinema 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 […]
