Patrick Melrose Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Benedict Cumberbatch

Patrick Melrose is a drama I went into knowing absolutely nothing about it, but it has been previewed for some time, with Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role. It’s based on the novels by Edward St Aubyn, with which I was unaware since I prefer seeing books in TV or film form. Set in London, […]

Romper Stomper Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Romper Stomper, the 1992 movie led by Russell Crowe as Hando, the Neo Nazi skinhead who hates everyone who has a skin with a different colour to him, was an incredible work of art as a movie. So, while it’s good that there’s a spin-off from that, it makes you wonder why it’s taken so […]

The Cured on DVD – The DVDfever Review

The Cured has an interesting premise in that, after a zombie outbreak, someone managed to cure a number of them, so they can rejoin the rest of society… but are they REALLY cured? What do you think?! After all, why else would they make such a film? 75% are deemed fine, including Abbie’s (Ellen Page) […]

Allure – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Allure is another one of those films where I’m going to be out of step with a lot of people because when I checked IMDB, it had a score of around 4.6/10. They must have clearly been watching a different movie, since this is a great drama. House cleaner Laura (Evan Rachel Wood) comes across […]

The Bridge Season 4 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Bridge Season 4: It’s back! Yes, for me, this is the pinnacle of Nordic Noir drama. Well, this and Braquo, but that came to an end after four seasons, and this will be doing so, too. I guess there’s only so far you can go with the characters before things start repeating themselves too […]

Redoubtable – The DVDfever Cinema Review – aka Godard Mon Amour

Redoubtable tells a tale which I’d never come across before, showing the relationship in the late ’60s between French film director Jean-Luc Godard (Louis Garrel) and his muse, Anne Wiazemsky, from start to finish since, while she’s approaching 20, he’s in his late 30s. What can go wrong?! He thinks he knows everything. She’s young […]

Innocent: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – ITV drama

Innocent centres around David Collins (Lee Ingleby – The A Word), who is released from jail after 7 years because the jury can’t agree on this and that about the forensic evidence over whether he actually killed his wife, Tara, or not. Full of frustration, the plan over he next four episodes is to find […]

The Rain Season 1 – The DVDfever Review – Netflix

The Rain is an eight-part Danish series and within a few minutes we’re in disaster movie territory after a motorway pile-up could have serious consequences for everyone if they don’t shift their butts and get to safety. That’s because the rain contains a killer virus, and only the Dad of the family can save the […]

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire with Jeremy Clarkson – The DVDfever Review

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is a quiz show which ran for years and years under the hosting of Chris Tarrant, and spawned countless versions abroad as well as being the cornerstone of Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire. Interestingly, Tarrant wasn’t even asked whether he wanted to be part of the show’s return, so, while […]

Acts of Vengeance on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Antonio Banderas

Acts of Vengeance looks like a film which someone intended to present in 2.35:1 like most action movies, but instead, shot it at around 16:9 and forgot to mask it to 2.35:1 in the final edit. Also, the font of the opening credits, and how they appear onscreen, looks like they’ve been applied with Photoshop […]
