The Endless Summer Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Endless Summer is documentary filmmaker Bruce Brown’s movie about the search for the perfect wave, and how the ultimate achievement is to get covered by the wave, as if you’re riding through a tube. In addition, you want an ‘endless summer’, i.e. to have the warm water and waves, but without the crowds. The […]

Bushwick – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Bushwick is an area of Brooklyn, New York, where the world has been completely turned upon its head. We first see Lucy (Brittany Snow) trying to get to her grandma’s house after finishing college for Xmas, walking through the subway with her boyfriend, when they see a man running and screaming…. completely on fire! Dom […]

Death Note – The DVDfever Cinema / Netflix Review

Death Note has the simple premise about a book which passes from one owner to another, and whoever possesses it at the time can write the name of the person they want to die, as well as the method of dispatching them, and can then just sit back and wait for the Grim Reaper’s actions […]

Their Finest on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Their Finest – based on the novel, Their Finest Hour And A Half – in case you wondered why the title didn’t make a huge heap of sense and was wildly ambiguous – centres around a film company trying to make morale-boosting movies during World War II, where everyone’s overacting… in this movie, not the […]

Clash on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Clash has nothing to do with the popular London band during the ’70s and ’80s, but is more a clash of cultures and beliefs, and shows quite a rarity in filmmaking in that the entirety of the movie is set in a single location, in this case, a van. The easiest way to set the […]

The Hunt on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Lucas finds out It’s a Mads, Mads, Mads, Mads World…

The Hunt centres around Lucas (Mads Mikkelsen), a middle-aged man who’s divorced and hardly sees his son and who could really use a break in life, but at least he has some good friends and colleagues… at first. An innocent moment he’d rather forget happens while he’s working at the nursery, which leads to one […]

What Happened To Monday – The DVDfever Cinema / Netflix Review

What Happened To Monday? Usually, I’m more familiar with ‘What Happened to Saturday’ when I wake up at 4pm after a night out in Manchester… but I digress. Set in the 2073, the world has become a futuristic North Korea where overpopulation and famine have led to drastic measures with children being exterminated if you […]

Emoji Movie – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Worst film of 2017?

Emoji Movie – if you want a depressing, laugh-free experience for almost 90 minutes, then this is the film for you. I was caught a little off-guard at the start as the Columbia Tristar logo came up, and was interrupted by a mobile phone with someone placing an emoji over the lady, consisting of sunglasses […]

Atomic Blonde – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Atomic Blonde kicks off with a bang as MI6 agent James Gasciogne (Sam Hargrave) and evil KGB agent Yuri Bakhtin (Jóhannes Jóhannesson) have words, leading to the former coming off worse in shocking circumstances and on the orders of a mysterious double agent in Berlin, called Satchel (played by… not telling). Told in flashback, we […]

The Handmaiden Extended Version on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Handmaiden is a film from Park Chan-wook, whose Oldboy has been on my never-ending to-watch list for some time, but now my Park cherry has been popped with this 1930s-set tale of well-to-do Japanese heiress Lady Hideko (Kim Min-hee), who hires new handmaiden, or rather, has her hired by her staff, since being rich […]
