Freejack – The DVDfever Review

Freejack is one of my all-time favourite films, even if it does have some issues that can’t be resolved, and it’s also one I never got round to reviewing, as it was in the cinema before I started imparting my missives on the internet (well, April 1992 was a time when I only had access […]

Love Stalk – The DVDfever Review

Love Stalk highlights the problem a lot of us have in that we probably share too much of our lives online. Do you really need to Instagram your dinner? Well, if everyone else does… Sharon Ong (Angie Palmer) is one of the fastest-rising talents at PR Central, one of those PR companies where you sometimes […]

Assassins Creed – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Assassins Creed begins with a brief set-up in 1492 about the Order of the Knights Templar, then moves on to 1986 showing Callum Lynch as a kid on a bike in 1986, after his mother has been murdered, we speed forward again by 30 years on to the present day – well, almost. It’s October […]

Passengers – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Passengers. 5000 of them, and over 200 crew, but Jim (Chris Pratt) is the only one woken up 90 years early by an incident through an asteroid field, so he’s got a long time to wait before he reaches the planet, Homestead II. Left home alone with nothing to do other than grow a beard […]

London Korean Film Festival 2016 by Helen M Jerome

London Korean Film Festival 2016: The quality is always high and the quantity seems to expand each year, as Helen M Jerome finds at the 2016 London Korean Film Festival. These days the best-curated festivals seem to take the temperature of not only their own culture, but also the world – the personal becoming the […]

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 3D – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first of two spin-offs to the Star Wars canon, this one placed inbetween the lacklustre Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, and next Christmas’ Episode VIII. Episode IX will come at Christmas 2019, with a young Han Solo movie being released at the yuletide season inbetween… […]

BFI 60th London Film Festival Part 3 (2016) by Helen M Jerome

BFI 60th London Film Festival Part 3: Now’s the time to focus on the extraordinarily rich crop of documentaries from the 2016 London Film Festival – including lots of biopics, some very personal passion projects, politics and quite a bit of music. And it’s also high time we handed out those entirely virtual, but nonetheless […]

Snowden – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Snowden… Edward Snowden… the guy who spilled all of the CIA’s secrets about snooping on civilians. George W. Bush did nothing to stop it, and then when Barack Obama took over the Presidency, he vowed to stamp it out… and just ramped it up. Remember that if you’re wishing that he could serve a third […]

Sully: Miracle On The Hudson – The non-disaster movie is a disaster – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Sully is the one where the studio had to add “Miracle on the Hudson” to the UK title because most people outside of the US wouldn’t remember the nickname of pilot Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger (played by Tom Hanks) who pulled a Homer when both engines failed soon after take-off following an attack by idiotic geese, […]

BFI 60th London Film Festival Part 2 by Helen M Jerome

BFI 60th London Film Festival Part 2: It’s high time we looked further afield, into Europe and beyond, to see what they’re up to in their movies. Some of them may not have the massive budgets and starry casts of their American and British equivalents (with notable exceptions), but their ambition, artistic merit and craft […]
