Ronin Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Ronin is the name given to Japanese Samurai swordsmen sworn to protect their liege after they had failed in their duty, forcing them to wander the land looking for work as hired swords and bandits. Now the Cold War has ended, this is the age of the freelance killer. In Paris a five-strong group, each […]

Mindhorn on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Mindhorn is a comedy which had me at ‘hello’ when I first saw the trailer, right before I was about to watch Free Fire, so I was gutted when the studio didn’t send enough prints round the UK, meaning my local Odeon (Trafford Centre) couldn’t show it. But now, it’s out on Blu-ray and DVD. […]

Whitney: Can I Be Me on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Whitney: Can I Be Me is one of those documentaries about an individual where I wasn’t particular enamoured with their output, but I was fascinated with how their rise and fall played out. There’s no doubt that Whitney Houston had one of the most incredible voices you’ve ever heard, best shown off with her cover […]

The Endless Summer Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Endless Summer is documentary filmmaker Bruce Brown’s movie about the search for the perfect wave, and how the ultimate achievement is to get covered by the wave, as if you’re riding through a tube. In addition, you want an ‘endless summer’, i.e. to have the warm water and waves, but without the crowds. The […]

Their Finest on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Their Finest – based on the novel, Their Finest Hour And A Half – in case you wondered why the title didn’t make a huge heap of sense and was wildly ambiguous – centres around a film company trying to make morale-boosting movies during World War II, where everyone’s overacting… in this movie, not the […]

Clash on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Clash has nothing to do with the popular London band during the ’70s and ’80s, but is more a clash of cultures and beliefs, and shows quite a rarity in filmmaking in that the entirety of the movie is set in a single location, in this case, a van. The easiest way to set the […]

The Hunt on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Lucas finds out It’s a Mads, Mads, Mads, Mads World…

The Hunt centres around Lucas (Mads Mikkelsen), a middle-aged man who’s divorced and hardly sees his son and who could really use a break in life, but at least he has some good friends and colleagues… at first. An innocent moment he’d rather forget happens while he’s working at the nursery, which leads to one […]

Atomic Blonde – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Atomic Blonde kicks off with a bang as MI6 agent James Gasciogne (Sam Hargrave) and evil KGB agent Yuri Bakhtin (Jóhannes Jóhannesson) have words, leading to the former coming off worse in shocking circumstances and on the orders of a mysterious double agent in Berlin, called Satchel (played by… not telling). Told in flashback, we […]

The Handmaiden Extended Version on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Handmaiden is a film from Park Chan-wook, whose Oldboy has been on my never-ending to-watch list for some time, but now my Park cherry has been popped with this 1930s-set tale of well-to-do Japanese heiress Lady Hideko (Kim Min-hee), who hires new handmaiden, or rather, has her hired by her staff, since being rich […]

Power Rangers (2017) – The DVDfever Review

Power Rangers or… Go! Go! Power Rangerrrrrrs! Yes, that’s the original theme and it pops up very briefly around 3/4 of the way through this overlong trawl into Rebootsville. In fact, there is something good about this – the first 20-30 minutes aren’t too bad, as it gets a bit ‘Breakfast Club‘ when Jason (Dacre […]
