Eat Locals on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Eat Locals is a play on the phrase ‘Eat Local’, same as ‘Shop Local’, i.e. buy from local independent shops rather than the big chain stores that’ll live forever, anyway, but Eat Locals – with an ‘s’ – refers to… yes… eating people. The main cast, including Eve Myles, Tony Curran and Annette Crosbie, are […]

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Amazing Grace!

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami opens with Miss Grace’s iconic Slave To The Rhythm, with the leady singing whilst using the hula hoop, same as when she appeared at the Queen’s Jubilee Concert in 2012 (below), making me smile so much I felt myself beaming from ear to ear as this began. The film follows […]

Churchill on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Brian Cox

Churchill… Winston Churchill… like Solo… Han Solo… and Bond… James Bond… Okay, let’s be serious for a moment. Churchill probably sounded like a great idea on paper. Wartime movies are sprinkling their way through the cinema schedules of late, so inbetween Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk and Gary Oldman’s Oscar/BAFTA-contender The Darkest Hour, someone thought: Brian Cox […]

The Party on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Party is an invite I’d not accepted until now… yes, that’s a lame joke with which to introduce a review for a comedy from Pink Panther collaborators Blake Edwards and Peter Sellers which was consistently funny almost from start to finish. Sellers takes the lead as Indian actor Hrundi V Bakshi, who we first […]

A Man Called Ove on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

A Man Called Ove portrays Rolf Lassgård in the titular role as the grumpiest of grumpy old men, not understanding why he can’t get one bunch of flowers for 35krone, simply because he has a voucher that states two bunches are 70kr. I’ve seen that happen before in shops, so clearly this man’s trials are […]

Double Date – The DVDfever Cinema Review – The perfect Halloween horror-comedy!

Double Date centres around two women on dates with a difference – they’re homicidal murderers. Yes, if you’ve ever wondered why you didn’t get a second date with a woman – Did she not fancy you? Did you wear the wrong shoes? Is she not impressed by your Xbox Gamertag score? …well, with these two, […]

Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict focuses on the home computer that defined my teenage years – the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Originally known as the ZX-82, it was named the ‘Spectrum’ so to show how it’s full of colour compared to its black-and-white predecessor, the ZX81. Add-ons came in the form of joystick connectors, and the […]

Berlin Syndrome on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Berlin Syndrome‘s title infers similarities with Stockholm Sydrome, when a captive bonds with their captor. New to the city, and hanging out with some impromptu friends on the roof of her hostel, Clare (Teresa Palmer) soon heads off into the town, and into a chance meeting with Andi (Max Riemelt), leading to perhaps the one […]

Blade Runner 2049 – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Good, but not iconic

Blade Runner 2049 comes 35 years after the original Blade Runner, but time has moved on just 30 years. Is it worth seeing on the big screen? It is, but bear in mind that it’s long, if you didn’t like the original then your opinion won’t change with this sequel, and if you did enjoy […]

I Am Not Madame Bovary on DVD – The DVDfever Review

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 […]
