Split leads the new cinema releases & trailers January 20th 2017

Split This week, there are FOUR new films out for you to choose from: James McAvoy has 23 different personalities in Split, Natalie Portman is JFK’s widow, Jackie, Vin Diesel returns to pay his tax bill in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, and heartstring-tugging drama in Lion.

Split stars the versatile James McAvoy (back with a bald head again, after X-Men Apocalypse) as Kevin, a man with at least 23 different personalities, including a 9-year-old boy called Hedwig. He abducts three teenage girls under one guise, then in another tells them, “Don’t worry, he’s not allowed to touch you. He knows what you’re here for.” Reassuring(!!)

Eventually, a final personality – “The Beast” – will materialise…

The Best and Worst of 2016 in Movies and Videogames!

A new year brings a look back at the previous year’s releases and everything we watched at the cinema or on Blu-ray at home, plus all those computer and console delights in The Best and Worst of 2016 in Movies and Videogames!

I normally post that right at the end of the year, but… I forgot!

All scores are out of 10, with some Blu-ray and DVD releases being a film-only review. I also have online vlogs for my Top 10 Best and Worst Movies of 2015 so will post those below.

For TV series where I’d review individual episodes, click here. I haven’t listed them individually here as they’d take up way too much space.

Freejack – The DVDfever Review

Freejack

Freejack is one of my all-time favourite films, even if it does have some issues that can’t be resolved, and it’s also one I never got round to reviewing, as it was in the cinema before I started imparting my missives on the internet (well, April 1992 was a time when I only had access to it at Keele University).

This film has only ever had a DVD release over here and other countries, but I’ve never yet seen a Blu-ray surface. A shame since at the time of posting, the film marks 25 years today since it was released in US cinemas, whereas here in the UK, we didn’t see it theatrically until March 27th of that year.

Assault On Precinct 13 Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Assault On Precinct 13

Assault On Precinct 13 is one of those all-time classic movies which I’ve never got round to watching before now, but with this 40th Anniversary release, I still went in knowing as little as possible, and I could nitpick in that it’s not Precinct 13, but Precinct 9, Division 13.

Gang violence in rife after six members of LA’s Street Thunder outfit are gunned down by police leading those left to salute their fallen bretheren by carving a triangle in their arms and dripping their blood into a bowl. However, that won’t be the only blood spilled tonight.

Driller Killer Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Driller Killer

Driller Killer is another of those films I’m watching for the first time as it makes its Blu-ray premiere, with a number of big extras from Arrow.

Beginning with the words, “THIS FILM SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD”, it doesn’t really need to be particularly loud because it was only ever recorded in mono and the quality isn’t fantastic due to its low-budget roots, too.

Cohen and Tate on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Cohen and Tate

Cohen and Tate are two hitmen, the former of which, played by Roy Schneider, a man who normally works alone, but has been partnered up with Adam Baldwin (cast in this after the director saw his performance in Full Metal Jacket). Tate is a headstrong idiot, while Cohen is cool, calm and self-assured. It’s very interesting to see Schneider in a rare role as a bad guy, making him nicely mean and menacing, especially with his dyed blonde hair-do.
