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 […]

Badlands: The Premium Collection on Blu-ray & DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

Badlands is one of those films I saw many moons ago but haven’t seen since. Why? I’m not sure, since I absolutely loved it and in this new release, it was great to catch it again. Firstly, I’ll say that there’s no plot spoilers in this, but I will talk about some elements of the […]

Paddington 2 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Paddington 2: This Time It’s Personal… no, that was Jaws IV: The Revenge, but both feature individuals who are little alien in their respective environments because they’re getting hassled by ‘the man’. There’s a complex plot about how Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday is coming up, and the little bear cub decides he should get her […]

Call Me By Your Name on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Call Me By Your Name takes place in Northern Italy, over the summer of 1983 and centres around 17-year-old Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), and the older, Oliver (Armie Hammer), who’s hired to help Elio’s professor father (Michael Stuhlbarg) with his research into Greco-Roman culture. I knew nothing about the topic he’s studying, but I figured […]
