After The Storm – Hirokazu Koreeda Family Values Boxset on Blu-ray and DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

After The Storm centres around unrepetentant gambler Ryôta Shinoda (Hiroshi Abe), who’s obviously short of money, but doesn’t want to lose too much else now that his father has passed away, and he’s becoming increasingly distant from his son, while his ex-wife is very dismissive of him, given how often the odds are against him. […]

Like Father, Like Son – Hirokazu Koreeda Family Values Boxset on Blu-ray and DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

Like Father, Like Son initially centres around workaholic father Ryota Nonomiya (Fukuyama Masaharu), his put-upon wife Midori (Ono Machiko) and their 6-year-old son, Keita (Keita Ninomiya), with a family life that can just about be described as functional, as Ryota’s more concerned with looking to his future, than concentrating on the now, so misses out […]

Jigsaw on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Jigsaw is a movie I’ve been waiting for almost 40 years for, every since the TV series I watched as a child, on BBC1 from 1979, with Adrian Hedley, Wilf Lunn and Janet Ellis… oh, yes, Janet Ellis. I specifically remember the Marcel Marceau-type performances from Hedley, and… (pardon? …This is what? …ooh, blimey) Okay, […]

I, Tonya – The DVDfever Cinema Review

I, Tonya centres around Olympic figure-skater Tonya Harding (Suicide Squad‘s Margot Robbie) and Jeff Gillooly, her violent ex-husband, played by Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky O’Hare in the Marvel movies, including Captain America: Civil War, so it’s DC vs Marvel at last… albeit kinda in real life. In fact, you could also throw in a […]

I Wish – Hirokazu Koreeda Family Values Boxset on Blu-ray and DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

I Wish is the first title in the Hirokazu Koreeda Family Values Blu-ray triple boxset, and it tells a bizarre tale about a volcano which is about to erupt over the Japanese town of Kigoshima, and the signs are set by the fact there’s volcanic ash dropping all over the place. Koichi (Koki Maeda) is […]

The Housemaid on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Housemaid centres around the fact that someone’s done a murder and bumped off Captain Sebastien Laurent (Jean-Michel Richaud), but with four members of staff at the French plantation, Sa-Cat, namely Mrs Han (Kim Xuan), Mrs Ngo (Phi Phung), Mr Chau (Kien An) and newcomer Linh (Kate Nhung) – the titular housemaid, the only likely […]

Ice Cold In Alex 60th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Ice Cold In Alex is, before now, a film from which I’ve only seen one scene over and over and over… when John Mills is drinking Carlsberg and everyone else is staring at him. The M*A*S*H unit in World War II have to get from A to B in the desert, B being the British […]

The LEGO Ninjago Movie 3D on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The LEGO Ninjago Movie begins, unlike The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie, with a live-action piece and a mysterious story where store owner Mr Liu (Jackie Chan) introduces a young boy into the world of Lloyd, alongside Master Wu, the latter also voiced by Chan – and then it’s off into LEGO land. […]

Hausu (House) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

House, in horror movie terms, isn’t just about cheesy perms in the ’80s, but until now, in the form of Hausu, it’s an even more bizarre Japanese movie from 1977, and the first for director Nobuhiko Ôbayashi. Angel (Kimiko Ikegami) is a schoolgirl going through a hard time. Her father is about to get remarried, […]

Strangled on Blu-ray and DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

Strangled centres around two men, both who look very similar, so much so, in fact, that it even confused me at first as to precisely what was going on. It has a plot which does seem rather improbable, but is actually based on real-life events, and paints a very tragic, but mostly gripping tale. In […]
