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 […]

Asian Connection on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Asian Connection is the first new Steven Seagal movie – with him in a lead role – I’ve seen in possibly two decades. In the meantime there was Machete where he attempted to do away with Danny Trejo, but you certainly don’t screw with the wrong Mexican (to tone down that film’s catchphrase), but back […]

Five Pillars on DVD – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Five Pillars begins just as Darren (Tom Bott) has returned from Afghanistan, struggling to fit in now he’s back on Civvy Street, especially with the UK deep in recession. Even three years on from when this film was made, I’m still struggling to see the “green shoots of recovery” that some politicians claim to have […]

Orthodox on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Orthodox centres around Stephen Graham as Benjamin, a boxer-turned-butcher who’s still forced to fight because money is tight. The recession has hit his family business hard, so in order to make ends meet, long-time friend Shannon (Michael Smiley) arranges underground Ronnie Pickering-style bare-knuckle face-bashing events for him to take part in, and, when push comes […]

Roobarb and Custard: The Complete Collection on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Roobarb and Custard is one of many classic TV series from my childhood, the original of which was made in 1974 when I was just two, so I mostly remember it as it was repeated ad nauseum in the late ’70s and into the early ’80s. Seeing it again instantly reminds me of those classic […]

I Am Wrath on DVD – The DVDfever Review

I Am Wrath gave me high hopes as it came from Chuck Russell, the same director as Arnie’s 1996 action epic Eraser, even if that was 20 years ago. John Travolta had a career resurgence in 1994 when he played hitman Jules in Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, but since then, his acting roles have been hit […]

A War (Krigen) on DVD – The DVDfever Review

A War doesn’t take long to get across the horrors of conflict when we see a soldier become a victim of an IED, or improvised explosive device – namely, a landmine. Following this, their commanding officer, Claus Michael Pedersen (Pilou Asbæk), takes the lead in going on patrol with them, instead of staying well behind […]

Grandma on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Grandma, we love you. Grandma, we do. Yes, I couldn’t help but start with with a reference to that track. After all, how many other films am I going to review with this same title, between now and my old age when I’ve reached the same point in my lifespan as grannies? Lily Tomlin is […]
