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. […]

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 […]

Underworld: Blood Wars on 3D Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Underworld: Blood Wars is the fifth in the ‘Vampires vs Werewolves’ action/horror series, only four of which have started Kate Beckinsale as ‘death dealer’ Selene, but if you’re not up to speed, then Blood Wars begins with a very brief potted history of events so far. For anyone new to the franchise, I would recommend […]

One-Eyed Jacks Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

One-Eyed Jacks is a film I reviewed by chance, and which has completely turned around my opinion of its lead actor and director, Marlon Brando. Generally, when I review films, I put in a request, they arrive through the post, I watch them and post my review online. For this one, I hadn’t requested it, […]

The Hatton Garden Job on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Hatton Garden Job is a relatively quick turnaround for a real-life heist which took place in April 2015, so its cinema release was just two years after that. Matthew Goode narrates as the unnamed – and youngest – participant in the robbery. Well, his name is given in the credits as ‘XXX’, but he’s […]

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter: before this even began I knew that, in a few years, I’d be back in almost the same seat to watch No.7 in the series. Oddly, this one didn’t start straight after the last one left off (which I expected, since 2012’s Resident Evil: Retribution did exactly that), but it […]

Prevenge on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – the film Kill Bill should’ve been

Prevenge is what Kill Bill should’ve been. That may sound like a bold statement, but while Quentin Tarantino’s first three films were superb, the Kill Bill double-bill faltered. The Bride told how she went on a “roaring rampage of revenge” and how “I roared. And I rampaged. And I got bloody satisfaction.” Really? She only […]
