The Mummy (2017) – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Ending Universal’s Dark Monsters Universe?

The Mummy is another reboot of the series which begins with London’s £15bn Crossrail project coming across the tomb of Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella – who gave us a great turn as Jaylah in last year’s Star Trek Beyond) as they dig underground, even though they’re going ABOVE the Tube, so that lot must’ve just […]

Wonder Woman – aka Wearisome Woman – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Wonder Woman, in her Gal Gadot incarnation, first came to our cinema screens in Spring 2016 as the ‘guest star’ of the mediocre Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. In DC Comics, it was followed by Suicide Squad last August – a film I enjoyed, but it didn’t go down too well with a lot […]

Dough – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Dough – is dough as in bread, not money, although you have to spend money to buy bread, and that’s also a problem for Nat Dayan (Jonathan Pryce), an orthodox jew who runs a failing bakery, with the lease owned by Pauline Collins‘ late husband. Since she’s now sold her stake on to businessman Phil […]

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge is the first one in the series I’ve watched properly. I never got into them when they first started, so I gave the first one a try a short while back it was on BBC1 (and yes, in 2.35:1 and Dolby Digital 5.1 – they had got that right […]

Detour – The DVDfever Cinema Review – one of 2017’s must-see movies

Detour is a film which, from the trailer, looked like it could end up hit-or-miss, but in the full telling will most likely be one of my Top 10 films of the year. Law student Harper (Tye Sheridan) is at his wits end, since his mother is in a coma for which he squarely blames […]

Jawbone – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Jawbone tells the underdog tale of former child-star boxing champion Jimmy McCabe (Johnny Harris). His best years are long behind him, thanks heavy drinking and the fact that the council want to evict him from his flat, since the appartment block is being knocked down. He’s refusing because it once belonged to his mother; yes, […]

Alien Covenant – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Alien Covenant could just really be called Covenant, since that’s the name of the spaceship in this movie, like the previous one’s Prometheus… which was just called Prometheus, and not Alien Prometheus… not that it particularly matters because in this eighth (by my count) xenomorph-based movie, it delivers a lot of the sort of thing […]

Away – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Timothy Spall drama

Away is where everyone wants to get to, once in a while, but here, it’s the mismatched pairing of widower Joseph (Timothy Spall) and ex-junkie Ria (Juno Temple), as they meet in a film which drew me in and I found to be very enchanting. Meeting in Blackpool, fate brings them together as Joseph has […]

Unlocked – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Unlocked stars Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, Rupture) as Alice Racine, a CIA agent who had her fill of the frontline action when an operation in Paris, 2012, resulted in lot of civilian casualties. She hasn’t been able to properly get herself back together since then, so takes a desk job in the immigration dept of London’s […]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is kinda stuck in the past…. 2014, to be precise. It’s a bit like Rogue One in that it hops from planet to planet at the start before settling down, but starting off with a pre-credits scene on Earth – Missouri to be precise – and in 1980 when Peter’s […]
