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, […]

Ingrid Goes West – The DVDfever Review

Ingrid Goes West portrays Aubrey Plaza in the titular lead, distinctly sick and tired of individuals who live their life through Instragram and other social media playforms, and expressing her displeasure at not being invited to Charlotte’s (Meredith Kathleen Hagner) wedding by gatecrashing it, pepper-spraying her face, and ending up in a mental institution as […]

Flatliners (2017) – The DVDfever Review

Flatliners is one of my all-time favourite films. The 1990 original, that is. Joel Schumacher’s vision was amazing, and the widescreen visuals were killed on pan-and-scan VHS tape, so it’s no surprise that when I bought a Creative Dxr2 DVD-ROM player for my PC, with the region hacked, the first DVD I bought was a […]

Fifty Shades Darker Unmasked Edition – The DVDfever Review

Fifty Shades Darker returned the mismatched pair to the big screen where we learn Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) had a troubled childhood, similar to how this film series had a troubled history when original director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, left, and James Foley took over, causing the delay in filming. There’s trouble in the state of Denmark […]

London Korean Film Festival 2017: Every year, as winter comes around, we look forward to this event, and 2017 certainly lived up to expectations. There seems to be a real urgency in the country’s exploration of so many genres, from the introspection of The First Lap and In Between Seasons – which respectively explore straight […]

Raw – The DVDfever Review

Raw centres around freshman University student and vegetarian Justine (Garance Marillier) who, together with her biology class, are liberally splattered with animal blood as part of an initiation, leaving her with a huge rash. It also doesn’t help that this vegetarian was also cajoled into eating raw meat. This leads her to getting a taste […]

Brawl in Cell Block 99 – The DVDfever Review

Brawl in Cell Block 99 is a violent prison drama starting Vince Vaughn and… hang on… Vince Vaughn?! If you’d asked me who’s the ‘man least likely to’ star as a shaven-headed (possibly neo-Nazi, but this isn’t confirmed), hard-as-nails convict, one option would’ve been Vince Vaughn, who usually wastes his *and* our time in lame […]
