Daphne on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Daphne is a classic example of one of those films which really grabbed me from the trailer, below, but turned out to be considerably less than the sum of its parts. Portrayed by Emily Beecham, the titular lead drinks, does drugs, she’s stupidly dismissive of everyone, and as the film follows her as she goes […]

Maze on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Maze is the prison, in Northern Ireland, where, in 1983, Larry Marley (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) ends up after ten of his friends have died from hunger strike, including Bobby Sands.

Bad Day For The Cut – The DVDfever Review

Bad Day For The Cut is a good day for revenge movies, when farmer Donal (Nigel O’Neill) is naturally perturbed when his mother, Florence (Stella McCusker), is murdered, and he catches the bad guys still on his property, sort-of. It’s like a road/chase movie that goes from A to B to C, and so on, […]

England Is Mine takes the period in Steven Patrick Morrissey’s life from first constructing thoughts about poetry, whether reading or writing, and up to the time when he would embark upon a career with Johnny Marr, in 1982. “Life, in its humdrum sense, is worth avoiding… and through it all, a sense that things are […]

I Am Not Madame Bovary is so-called as the lead character, Li Xuelian (Bingbing Fan), is considered a woman of ill repute (as she had an affair), and all following her failed marriage to Qin Yuhe (Li Zonghan), even though we can see he’s not a very nice man. Hence, the lead character doesn’t associate […]

Follow The Money Season 2 on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Follow The Money Season 2 begins 18 months on from the end of season 1… Claudia (Natalie Madueño) is out of jail, and Sander (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) is out of the picture. No-one knows where he is, except The Swede and all us viewers. Another mystery is that Claudia goes home and has a bath, […]

The New Man – a captivating documentary – The DVDfever Review

The New Man is a documentary about becoming a parent which, based on the trailer, made me think this was going to be a little too light-hearted and knockabout, but I was so wrong. The trailer says the film it’s aimed at anyone who has children… anyone who wants them… (and, personally, I have no […]

Life, Animated looks at the life of Owen Suskind (below), a young man with autism who has only been able to make sense of the everything through the animated films from Disney, since he otherwise was unable to effectively communicate with the outside world. Over the course of this documentary, we learn how these have […]
