The Initiation on DVD – The DVDfever Review

The Initiation is what Kelly (Daphne Zuniga) goes through as she begins her time at the Delta Rho Chi student house, but we know from the start that not all her dogs are barking after an incident she carried out with a knife in her parents’ bedroom. There’s a gardener with a burnt face and […]

Wiener-Dog on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Wiener-Dog follows the ‘adventures’ of the titular dachsund from him being introduced to us via the opening dysfunctional family (Tracy Letts and Julie Delpy) who buy him, through to concerned vet’s assistant Dawn (Greta Gerwig), plus others including film school teacher Dave Schmerz (Danny DeVito) and an elderly woman played by Ellen Burstyn. With a […]

Richard Herring: Happy Now? on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Happy Now? is Richard Herring‘s twelfth stand-up show, and the third I’ve seen on DVD following last year’s Lord Of The Dance Settee and 2014’s We’re All Going To Die!, and this one sees Rich at a crossroads in his life – after years of hedonistic eternal student lifestyle as he started off in comedy, […]

To Live And Die In L.A. on DVD – The DVDfever Review

To Live And Die In L.A. is one of of William Friedkin‘s greatest films, with an incredible soundtrack from the effervescent Wang Chung, now getting a Blu-ray release for the first time in the UK, and while only a DVD was available for review, the great memories of this movie are flooding back and I […]

Weiner – The DVDfever Review

Weiner, Anthony Weiner. The Republican who clearly has some charisma – as we see him shout a lot in 2010 when the Republicans blocked healthcare for 9/11 emergency responders, but unfortunately for him, he chose to get out his own weiner, put it on Twitter, and initially refused to resign from his position in the […]

Notes On Blindness on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Notes On Blindness is the title of a compendium of C-90 audio cassette tapes recorded by Professor John Hull, portrayed here by Dan Skinner, who’s recently turned 40, so could be considered to be a bit too young for the part, but there are elements of artistic licence in that which you can overlook as […]

Elvis and Nixon on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Elvis and Nixon is when The King met The Crook, and is set between December 1970, when Elvis Presley wanted to stamp his mark on American politics, and February 16th, 1971, when then-President Richard Nixon began recording the audio of every meeting and phone call that took place in the Oval Office. The singer wants […]

Equals on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Equals centres around a large number of individuals working for a scientific company called Atmos, which is practically like a commune in the way it carries on. Communication between the workers is mostly limited, and appears frowned upon. Everyone wears white so they’re all seen as… you know, equal. Apartments are built such that when […]

10 Cloverfield Lane on DVD – The DVDfever Review

10 Cloverfield Lane: Wow! Well, that’s not a very descriptive review, is it, but this is a film where it’s best to know the bare minimum before you start to watch it, so feel free to skip the rest of this, knowing that it’s a very well-paced and competent thriller that doesn’t last too long, […]

Point Break 2015 on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Point Break 2015 is another of those entities that didn’t need to be remade, very much like Dad’s Army and Ghostbusters as well as countless others over the recent past. Charisma-vacuum Luke Bracey does his Chris-Hemsworth-as-gawpy look as FBI Agent Johnny Utah (originally played by Keanu Reeves) as he looks to take down a gang […]
