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 […]

Toni Erdmann on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Toni Erdmann is a film I was very sceptical when Mark Kermode said that there’s not a thing he would cut from a comedy which runs for almost three hours, especially since I would say the ideal running time for one is 90 minutes, but it started well with a first scene as Winfried (Peter […]

The Legacy Season 3 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Legacy Season 3 is a series I was in, initially, two minds about watching. I loved the first one, but found the second treaded water far too much, as if they’d run out of story and it was left coasting like a car with no breaks and a stalled engine, getting by on the […]

Catfight on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Catfight is a film which didn’t grab me from the trailer, despite anything featuring feisty Asian women usually fits right up my street, but then the Blu-ray arrived, so I thought I’d check it out… After all, there’s a chance I could be wrong. Kip’s (Giullian Yao Gioiello) parents don’t encourage him in any way […]
