Brigsby Bear on DVD – The DVDfever Review (and DVD unboxing!)

Brigsby Bear

Brigsby Bear is a children’s show from years gone by, where the titular character would go on adventures, constantly trying to defeat the even Sun Snatcher but, of course, he never would so the programme would have a reason to continue.

I’ll say at this point, that after watching the film, I had to re-watch the trailer so I knew I wasn’t spoiling anything that wasn’t already known, since it’s best that you don’t know anything extra and, for a change from most, the trailer for this movie does a fantastic job at not giving spoilers.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – Another Teaser – Chris Pratt

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom had a trailer back in December, so why have we got another teaser? Because another trailer is released on Wednesday. Jeez, just release the damn trailer!

Or better still, just cancel the whole thing as it looks so tired, especially in resorting to bringing back the T-Rex again.

I thought it was madness when Universal released one 15-second teaser at the start of the first week of its initial promotion, but a lot of studios do that and it’s crazy. However, Universal must’ve lost their marbles as they released SIX OF THEM! WHY??!!

Check out the teaser below:

In Darkness – Trailer 1 – Natalie Dormer

In Darkness In Darkness centres around blind musician Sofia (Natalie Dormer), who hears a murder committed in the apartment upstairs from her’s, which sends her down a dark path into London’s gritty criminal underworld.

It looks like one of those thrillers which puts style over substance, but then again, it’s like a film where everyone taking part is certainly enjoying themselves making it, especially Neil Maskell, best known for Channel 4’s Utopia, and it also features Emily Ratajkowski best known as one of the models in Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video.

In Darkness doesn’t yet have a release date either in the UK or US, but I do want to check it out when it’s released.

Director: Anthony Byrne
Writers: Anthony Byrne, Natalie Dormer
Also stars: Ed Skrein, Joely Richardson, James Cosmo, Kim Adis, Jan Bijvoet, Amber Anderson

Check out the trailer below:

Mary Shelley – Trailer 1 – Elle Fanning

Mary Shelley Mary Shelley (Elle Fanning) wrote the hit horror novel Frankenstein, and this movie tells of the love affair between poet Percy Shelley (Douglas Booth) and 18-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, which resulted in Ms Shelley writing the story.

However, don’t expect any horror in this as it just looks like a bog-standard period, romantic drama.

Mary Shelley is released in the UK on July 6th.

Director: Haifaa Al-Mansour
Writers: Haifaa Al-Mansour, Emma Jensen
Also stars: Maisie Williams, Joanne Froggatt, Stephen Dillane, Bel Powley, Ben Hardy, Tom Sturridge, Hugh O’Conor

Incredibles 2 – Trailer 1 – Craig T Nelson

Incredibles 2 Incredibles 2 follows a film I never got round to seeing properly. Yes, I know CGI movies aren’t my bag (and so should you, by now), but I still felt it might be worth a look. I think I managed about 20 minutes, in the end.

However, this time around, Bob Parr aka Mr Incredible (Craig T Nelson) is left to care for his baby, Jack-Jack, while Helen aka Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) is out saving the world.

And now, the first full trailer has been released.

Writer/Director: Brad Bird
Also stars: Samuel L Jackson, Catherine Keener, John Ratzenberger, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner

Incredibles 2 is released in the UK on July 13th, 2018.

Oceans 8 – Trailer 2 – Sandra Bullock

Oceans 8 Oceans 8 brings us back to a franchise I never watched in the first place, as Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) gathers a crew to attempt an impossible heist at New York City’s yearly Met Gala. She is Danny Ocean’s estranged sister, and her first stop is to assemble the perfect crew: Lou, Rose, Daphne Kluger, Nine Ball, Tammy, Amita, and Constance.

As you’d expect, there’s a big cast of well-known names, and sadly, they’re also included the dreadfully unfunny James Corden. Why do the Americans like him? And if they like him, can’t they just keep him locked in a cage in the basement?

Apparently, he’s just sired a daughter. I expect he’ll pass on his lack of talent.

And now a second trailer has been released.

Oceans 8 is released in the UK on June 22nd 2018, although in the US and for many other countries, it’s June 8th… which makes sense as it’s Oceans 8.

Director: Gary Ross
Writers: Olivia Milch, Gary Ross
Also stars: Cate Blanchett, Olivia Munn, Matt Damon, Dakota Fanning, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Richard Armitage, Katie Holmes, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Adriana Lima, Mindy Kaling, Hailey Baldwin, Samantha Cocozza

Dark Crimes – Trailer 1 – Jim Carrey

Dark Crimes Dark Crimes centres around the murder investigation of a slain business man, which leads to clues found in an author’s book about an eerily similar crime.

Jim Carrey takes the lead as Tadek, and looks fantastic in this. I alaways prefer his dramas to his comedies, although The Mask was fantastic.

Based on the 2008 article, “True Crimes – A postmodern murder mystery” by David Grann, the film is also known as True Crimes, but I suspect they’ve changed it so as to avoid clashing with the TV drama, True Crime.

Dark Crimes is released in the US on May 11th, but as of yet there’s no UK release date.

Director: Alexandros Avranas
Writers: Jeremy Brock (screenplay), David Grann (based on an article by)
Also stars: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marton Csokas, Kati Outinen, Vlad Ivanov, Agata Kulesza, Robert Wieckiewicz, Piotr Glowacki, Anna Polony, Zbigniew Zamachowski

Titan Quest on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Titan Quest

Titan Quest is out now for PS4, and this is the second time I’m writing a review for this game, since I did so prviously for the PC version, back in 2006 when it was first released. However, the site I wrote it for didn’t put my name on the review once published….. go figure!!

(DVDfever Dom: Sounds like the kind of useless berks they have at clickbait crap What Culture)

Instant Articles hijack Facebook Pages. Zuckerberg does nothing


Instant Articles is to clickbait junk what Kueez is to data-harvesting quizzes. They have an ‘e-learning’ course which teaches you ‘engaging storytelling’, yet to them, ‘engaging storytelling’ means “Woman Forces Fox To Be Vegan And Before-And-After Photos Are Devastating”.

Well, if you find that ‘engaging’, then you really need to have a word with yourself. Add to that, the problem that they copy tabloid hack techniques of Starting Every Word In A Headline With A Capital Letter. Oh, So Irritating…
