The Post – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Pentagon Papers Pish

The Post centres around US newspaper The Washington Post, and revealing deep government secrets about the Vietnam War, courtesy of military analyst Daniel Ellsberg (Matthew Rhys) who’s travelled to the country in question, in 1966, to experience the war on the ground, and who – five years later – seizes this opportunity, even though it […]

Darkest Hour – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Good Gary. Film Failure

Darkest Hour gives Gary Oldman a turn as Prime Minister Winston Churchill, after Brian Cox’s Churchill last year, but with Oldman as the man at the time of the Dunkirk evacuations, so incredibly portrayed last summer in Christopher Nolan’s IMAX epic, Dunkirk. Nolan’s film was quite a visual feast, but Cox’s turn has rather been […]

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, is what Mildred (Frances McDormand) hires out when she spots them, early on, and wants to put something out there relating to the death of her daughter, but she asks the owner of the boards, “What are the laws on what you can and cannot say? I presume you can’t […]

Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars – The DVDfever Review

Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars is the documentary about the singer/songwriter who was once, rightly, called God. The film takes in his early influences – which were mostly blues music (although precious few of his peers were), plus with some voiceover from his late grandmother, Rose Clapp – who he lived with, as well […]

Ingrid Goes West – The DVDfever Review

Ingrid Goes West portrays Aubrey Plaza in the titular lead, distinctly sick and tired of individuals who live their life through Instragram and other social media playforms, and expressing her displeasure at not being invited to Charlotte’s (Meredith Kathleen Hagner) wedding by gatecrashing it, pepper-spraying her face, and ending up in a mental institution as […]

Flatliners (2017) – The DVDfever Review

Flatliners is one of my all-time favourite films. The 1990 original, that is. Joel Schumacher’s vision was amazing, and the widescreen visuals were killed on pan-and-scan VHS tape, so it’s no surprise that when I bought a Creative Dxr2 DVD-ROM player for my PC, with the region hacked, the first DVD I bought was a […]

Fifty Shades Darker Unmasked Edition – The DVDfever Review

Fifty Shades Darker returned the mismatched pair to the big screen where we learn Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) had a troubled childhood, similar to how this film series had a troubled history when original director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, left, and James Foley took over, causing the delay in filming. There’s trouble in the state of Denmark […]

London Korean Film Festival 2017 by Helen M Jerome

London Korean Film Festival 2017: Every year, as winter comes around, we look forward to this event, and 2017 certainly lived up to expectations. There seems to be a real urgency in the country’s exploration of so many genres, from the introspection of The First Lap and In Between Seasons – which respectively explore straight […]

Raw – The DVDfever Review

Raw centres around freshman University student and vegetarian Justine (Garance Marillier) who, together with her biology class, are liberally splattered with animal blood as part of an initiation, leaving her with a huge rash. It also doesn’t help that this vegetarian was also cajoled into eating raw meat. This leads her to getting a taste […]
