Stormy Monday Special Edition on Blu-ray and DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

Stormy Monday takes place during America Week in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, so events will be carried out over more than the one day that the name might imply. (Yes, it’s title of the 1948 song from T-Bone Walker, which appears in this film courtesy of the late BB King, but allow me that intro) As is admitted […]

Wonder Woman – aka Wearisome Woman – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Wonder Woman, in her Gal Gadot incarnation, first came to our cinema screens in Spring 2016 as the ‘guest star’ of the mediocre Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. In DC Comics, it was followed by Suicide Squad last August – a film I enjoyed, but it didn’t go down too well with a lot […]

SS-GB Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Sam Riley drama

SS-GB is set in an alternate past, beginning in November 1941, fourteen months after the Germans won the Battle of Britain… yes, you read that right. Due to extreme austerity, it’s not only a time for sharing bathwater, but also sharing other things, since we first see Detective Douglas Archer (Sam Riley) sleeping with his […]

T2 Trainspotting – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Choose T2 Trainspotting. Choose following up the original film 20 years later with a film that’s a mixture of Irvine Welsh‘s sequel novel, Porno, and a new story, and realising that T2 Trainspotting is a much better title to beam out of the cinema box office laser display screen than that of the original book. […]

Ben-Hur 2016 – Rodrigo Santoro, as Jesus, nails it – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Ben-Hur 2016 begins with some mad, macho-style posturing, as it fast-forwards to the eventual chariot race when brothers Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston) and Messala (Toby Kebbell), his brother from another mother, are at odds with each other: Messala: “You should have stayed away!” Judah Ben-Hur: “You should have killed me!” Messala Severus: (decidedly) “I will.” […]

Highlander 30th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Highlander is a film I’ve seen a couple of times before now, but it’s been a long time since I last saw it and, 30 years on from its theatrical release, it’s good to reconnect with a classic from what feels like the not-so-distant past. I’ll also say at this point that I’m one of […]

The Durrells Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Durrells is a new six-part ITV drama based on Gerald Durrell‘s Corfu Trilogy, mixing light family-friendly drama with a hint of comedy, with Keeley Hawes‘ matriarch Louisa, frustrated at her lot. She’s a widow and has four rebellious children, hence a lack of a father figure in the childrens’ lives doesn’t help. Set in […]

Ben-Hur – Official Trailer #1 – Morgan Freeman, Jack Huston

Ben-Hur is best known in the movie world in its 1959 multi-Oscar-winning form starring the late Charlton Heston and directed by the even later William Wyler. This time round, Jack Huston (Hail Caesar!, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) takes the lead of Judah Ben-Hur, a Jewish prince in Roman-occupied Jerusalem who is betrayed and falsely […]
