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 […]

A Man Called Ove on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

A Man Called Ove portrays Rolf Lassgård in the titular role as the grumpiest of grumpy old men, not understanding why he can’t get one bunch of flowers for 35krone, simply because he has a voucher that states two bunches are 70kr. I’ve seen that happen before in shops, so clearly this man’s trials are […]

Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict focuses on the home computer that defined my teenage years – the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Originally known as the ZX-82, it was named the ‘Spectrum’ so to show how it’s full of colour compared to its black-and-white predecessor, the ZX81. Add-ons came in the form of joystick connectors, and the […]

Berlin Syndrome on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Berlin Syndrome‘s title infers similarities with Stockholm Sydrome, when a captive bonds with their captor. New to the city, and hanging out with some impromptu friends on the roof of her hostel, Clare (Teresa Palmer) soon heads off into the town, and into a chance meeting with Andi (Max Riemelt), leading to perhaps the one […]
