The Big Sick on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Big Sick centres around taxi driver and stand-up comedian Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani), the man playing himself as he went through this at the time and despite what usually happens in movies when someone writes, stars in and bases every last scene around themselves, this is NOT a pet project that goes to the lead’s […]

Tag (Riaru Onigokko) on Blu-ray and DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

Tag begins on a bus full of Japanese schoolgirls with a jaw-dropping and mind-blowing opening, and all I can say to avoid spoilers is that one of them, Mitsuko (Reina Triendl) is separated from the rest of them and off running for her life. And there was me thinking that throwing around a burst feather […]

The Wall on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Wall is a crumbling, physical structure somewhere in Iraq. It’s 2007 and the ‘war on terror’ is winding down. Bush Jr has declared victory and rebuilding taking place. Alas, for those contractors looking to make a quick buck, there’s a sniper out there and he’s bumped off all eight men in the space of […]

Office Christmas Party on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Office Christmas Party begins with Josh (Jason Bateman) getting a divorce, which is rather handy given that for the rest of the movie, he’ll be dilly-dallying around computer whizz Tracey (Olivia Munn), and if you’re wondering whether or not they’ll get together by the time 111 minutes have passed, it’s not a puzzle that’s as […]

Baby Driver on Blu-ray – The DVDfever 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, […]

Your Name on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Your Name centres around two school children – Mitsuha, a girl living in the countryside, and Taki, a boy in the bustling city of Tokyo. It quickly gets on with the plot as once the opening credits are done, the film proper begins with them waking up in each other’s bodies, so it’s of great […]

Blood Simple: Director’s Cut on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Blood Simple has a simple premise, but it’s far from simple how events will turn out. Texan Bar owner Julian Marty (Dan Hedaya) suspects his wife, Abby (Frances McDormand), of playing away with young barman Ray (John Getz), and has money to burn, in the hope that their corpses will be burning later, too. Step […]

Eat Locals on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Eat Locals is a play on the phrase ‘Eat Local’, same as ‘Shop Local’, i.e. buy from local independent shops rather than the big chain stores that’ll live forever, anyway, but Eat Locals – with an ‘s’ – refers to… yes… eating people. The main cast, including Eve Myles, Tony Curran and Annette Crosbie, are […]

Churchill on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Brian Cox

Churchill… Winston Churchill… like Solo… Han Solo… and Bond… James Bond… Okay, let’s be serious for a moment. Churchill probably sounded like a great idea on paper. Wartime movies are sprinkling their way through the cinema schedules of late, so inbetween Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk and Gary Oldman’s Oscar/BAFTA-contender The Darkest Hour, someone thought: Brian Cox […]

The Party on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Party is an invite I’d not accepted until now… yes, that’s a lame joke with which to introduce a review for a comedy from Pink Panther collaborators Blake Edwards and Peter Sellers which was consistently funny almost from start to finish. Sellers takes the lead as Indian actor Hrundi V Bakshi, who we first […]
