The Commuter on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Commuter starts with an overlong intro that shows Michael (Liam Neeson) living the same kind of day over and over, as we all do when going to work. So we get it – without all that faffing about. Anyhoo, one day, he realises just how much debt he’s in, and while having the day […]

Space Truckers on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Space Truckers initially centres around intergalactic delivery driver John Canyon (Dennis Hopper) taking wide loads from A to B across the universe, in his space truck known as Bitchin’ Betty, but when dropping into the diner where waitress Cindy works (Debi Mazar), to whom he’s forever proposing, and there he also meets drifter Mike Pucci […]

All the Money in the World on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

All the Money in the World is a film that feels like the real drama happened off-screen rather than on, but I’ll come to that in a bit. The premise is simple enough. J Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer) was the world’s first billionaire, and with the film starting on July 10th 1973, his grandson, John […]

Acts of Vengeance on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Antonio Banderas

Acts of Vengeance looks like a film which someone intended to present in 2.35:1 like most action movies, but instead, shot it at around 16:9 and forgot to mask it to 2.35:1 in the final edit. Also, the font of the opening credits, and how they appear onscreen, looks like they’ve been applied with Photoshop […]

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle is a film that didn’t appeal to me from the trailer because… Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. I have got rather sick of that pair. Plus, they seem to be trashing a wonderful original movie. However, with the film released in UK cinemas just a few days after Star Wars […]

Thor: Ragnarok – The DVDfever Review

Thor: Ragnarok begins by explaining the title when Surtur (Clancy Brown) tells Thor (Chris Hemsworth) that Ragnarok is coming, which means the end of all things, but the humour kicks in early as our hero’s bound in chains and its slow twisting and turning takes Surtur out of his gaze, our hero begging for his […]

Happy End on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Happy End is the latest movie from Michael Haneke (Amour) with a lot of concurrent stories crossing over each other, beginning with the ground collapsing at a building site where Anne’s (Isabelle Huppert) son, Pierre (Franz Rogowski), is in charge. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from the […]

Wonder on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Wonder centres around a young lad called August, better known as Auggie (Jacob Tremblay, who was superb in 2016’s Room), with a facial deformity that results in bullies making fun of him, yet he tries not to let it get him down too much, although he still wears an astronaut helmet so no-one can see […]

Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool is set in the Scouse city in 1981, and it wasn’t until after I saw this that I discovered it was based on a true story. I hadn’t heard of her before and so that’s how I approached watching this which, at the start, finds actress Gloria Grahame (Annette […]

McCabe and Mrs Miller: The Premium Collection on Blu-ray & DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

McCabe and Mrs Miller is one of those ‘drifter comes into town and makes big impression’ stories, a Hollywood staple over the years, and especially so in the ’70s for Westerns, particularly when they have a back-story for being a right dodgy so-and-so, since this man, John McCabe (Warren Beatty), shot a man called Bill […]
