Free Fire – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Free Fire has a simple premise – an arms deal goes wrong. Tetchy people with itchy trigger fingers lead to guns being shot when it really wasn’t necessary, as everything was almost about to go smoothly, despite gun dealer Vernon (District 9‘s Sharlto Copley) supplying the wrong type of weapon. Set in 1970s Boston (but […]

Swiss Army Man on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Swiss Army Man is a film I really wanted to see on the big screen, but this desert island movie was ‘drowned out’ by other bigger films at the time, sadly, despite this one starring Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe. Hank (Paul Dano – so good as the young Brian Wilson in Love and Mercy) is […]

Ghost In The Shell centres around Major (Scarlett Johansson), a refugee whose boat sunk, and she was almost brown bread, but the powers that be used pioneering techniques to bring her back to life. On the plus side, she has the same brain and mind, but a whole new body, so she’s very much like […]

Allied on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Allied – the film where Brad Pitt takes the lead in the post-war drama as Max Vatan, the head of the Birmingham carpets and flooring company. His Brummy accent is impeccable!! But he takes a break from laying feet-friends by pretending that he’s laying Marianne Beauséjour (Marion Cotillard) while he’s out and about in Casablanca, […]

Paterson on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Paterson is the film is a young man called Paterson, who drives a bus in the town of Paterson, New Jersey. Taking in a week of his life, Adam Driver (Kylo Ren in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens) narrates a series of poems he writes on a daily basis, but he won’t show […]

Beauty and the Beast (2017) – The DVDfever Review

Beauty and the Beast – Meh. More or less a beat-by-beat retread of the animation. On the couple of occasions it adds something new, it’s quite good, but adds little to the original. Emma Watson is dull as ditchwater as Belle. The best thing you can say about her performance is – at least it […]

The New Man – a captivating documentary – The DVDfever Review

The New Man is a documentary about becoming a parent which, based on the trailer, made me think this was going to be a little too light-hearted and knockabout, but I was so wrong. The trailer says the film it’s aimed at anyone who has children… anyone who wants them… (and, personally, I have no […]

Get Out brings British actor Daniel Kaluuya (Psychoville) to the fore in a US movie as Chris Washington, a young black man with a white girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams); he’s off to meet her parents and assumes they’re uptight about the fact he’s black. But can he settle down a bit when he realises the […]
