Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets 3D – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is based on a 1960s French comic book series called Valerian and Laureline, the two main characters, and while the title sounds as bizarre as you’d expect from Besson, it’s based on two of those volumes, The City of Shifting Waters and Empire of a Thousand Planets. […]

Tale Of Tales is a film from Matteo Garrone, who co-wrote the screenplay, based on 17th century Italian poet Giambattista Basile‘s The Pentamerone, which translates as “The Tale of Tales, or Entertainment for Little Ones”), yet, while on the one hand, some of the visuals are not what you’d want your children to see, on […]

The Grand Budapest Hotel on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Grand Budapest Hotel makes its way on to Blu-ray and DVD, with a bold instruction at the start of the film: “PLEASE SET YOUR MONITOR TO 16X9”. You’ll see why in due course. The film involves the theft of a priceless painting, a wealthy, 84-year-old dowager (Tilda Swinton) who dies which leads to a […]

Godzilla – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Godzilla is the monster that just won’t stay dead, or at the very least, attempt to be killed. I enjoyed Roland Emmerich’s 1998 take on the character, as an enjoyable piece of hokum, and while I still haven’t seen Gareth Edwards‘ low-budget Monsters, I knew it was well-received, so why not let him have a […]

Under the order from President Franklin D Roosevelt, art experts Frank […]
