Mother! on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Right from the off, you know that Mother! is not going to be your usual, run-of-the-mill movie, for reasons you’ll see instantly, and which I won’t describe here. Don’t panic early on, as it looks like the two leads – mother-to-be Jennifer Lawrence and writer Javier Bardem – are auditioning for Grand Designs, on account […]

Daphne on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Daphne is a classic example of one of those films which really grabbed me from the trailer, below, but turned out to be considerably less than the sum of its parts. Portrayed by Emily Beecham, the titular lead drinks, does drugs, she’s stupidly dismissive of everyone, and as the film follows her as she goes […]

Wind River on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

I Am Not A Witch on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

I Am Not A Witch is one of those films where I wasn’t really sure what I just watched, even though it parts of it were certainly worth a watch. Shula (Maggie Mulubwa) is an eight-year-old girl in a commnuity full of residents in an area of Zambia, who clearly can’t be very bright because […]

Darkest Hour – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Good Gary. Film Failure

Darkest Hour gives Gary Oldman a turn as Prime Minister Winston Churchill, after Brian Cox’s Churchill last year, but with Oldman as the man at the time of the Dunkirk evacuations, so incredibly portrayed last summer in Christopher Nolan’s IMAX epic, Dunkirk. Nolan’s film was quite a visual feast, but Cox’s turn has rather been […]

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, is what Mildred (Frances McDormand) hires out when she spots them, early on, and wants to put something out there relating to the death of her daughter, but she asks the owner of the boards, “What are the laws on what you can and cannot say? I presume you can’t […]

Good Time on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Good Time is a crime thriller with two brothers attempting a bank robbery which doesn’t quite go to plan. With one of them quite sharp, and the other mentally ill, and with Connie (Robert Pattinson) being a despicable individual, yet with his heart always in the right place for his brother, Nick (co-director and co-editor […]

Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars – The DVDfever Review

Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars is the documentary about the singer/songwriter who was once, rightly, called God. The film takes in his early influences – which were mostly blues music (although precious few of his peers were), plus with some voiceover from his late grandmother, Rose Clapp – who he lived with, as well […]
