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 […]

Fast And Furious 8 out of 10! – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Fast And Furious 8 – aka The Fate of the Furious – is the… er… eighth film in the fast-driving franchise, and is the first one I’ve actually seen. I never got into them when they began, and then tried to watch No.6 when it was on Channel 4 (since ITV never showed the first […]

Free Fire – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Free Fire has a simple premise – an arms deal goes wrong. Tetchy people with itchy trigger fingers lead to guns being shot when it really wasn’t necessary, as everything was almost about to go smoothly, despite gun dealer Vernon (District 9‘s Sharlto Copley) supplying the wrong type of weapon. Set in 1970s Boston (but […]

Ghost In The Shell 3D IMAX (2017) – Stunning but soulless – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Ghost In The Shell centres around Major (Scarlett Johansson), a refugee whose boat sunk, and she was almost brown bread, but the powers that be used pioneering techniques to bring her back to life. On the plus side, she has the same brain and mind, but a whole new body, so she’s very much like […]

Beauty and the Beast (2017) – The DVDfever Review

Beauty and the Beast – Meh. More or less a beat-by-beat retread of the animation. On the couple of occasions it adds something new, it’s quite good, but adds little to the original. Emma Watson is dull as ditchwater as Belle. The best thing you can say about her performance is – at least it […]

Get Out… into a screen showing a better film – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Get Out brings British actor Daniel Kaluuya (Psychoville) to the fore in a US movie as Chris Washington, a young black man with a white girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams); he’s off to meet her parents and assumes they’re uptight about the fact he’s black. But can he settle down a bit when he realises the […]

Kong: Skull Island – Decent creature-feature fun – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Kong: Skull Island is normally the kind of films that would shown up on the big screen in the summer, but has actually come at a welcome time for parents of young children. Their offspring will have been looking forward to Hugh Jackman’s latest Wolverine outing in Logan, but they can’t watch it in the […]
