Jawbone – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Jawbone tells the underdog tale of former child-star boxing champion Jimmy McCabe (Johnny Harris). His best years are long behind him, thanks heavy drinking and the fact that the council want to evict him from his flat, since the appartment block is being knocked down. He’s refusing because it once belonged to his mother; yes, […]

From Darkness Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

From Darkness should’ve begun with former cop Claire Church (Anne-Marie Duff) re-enacting Al Pacino from The Godfather Part III bemoaning, “Just when I think I’m *out*, they pull me back *in*!” She quit the police force 16 years ago, but the continuity announcer attempted to instil some fear before it started with “her past is […]

Fortitude Episode 12 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 12 signals the end of ‘Eldorado In The Arctic‘ – bad acting, random accents and disjointed storylines. Yes, it’s the 1992 soap all over again! Vincent’s still trapped inside with Dr Allerdyce and she’s looking none too clever. Being a doctor won’t help her now. Worst still, those flies aren’t flies – they’re […]

Fortitude Episode 11 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 11 means we’re at the penultimate episode of one of the biggest disappointments in television history, so that’s something to be thankful for, at least. Well, Dan did have a change of heart after all, even though it could drop him right in the shit, and he heads out to see Morton, but […]

Fortitude Episode 10 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 10 begins with Henry enjoying the only thing you can enjoy about this dire series – the snowy hilltops on a clear day, as he listens to his old-fangled Sony Walkman. Lorcan Cranitch from Cracker is trying to get hold of Morton and we learn, as he calls the man’s phone and it […]

Fortitude Episode 9 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 9 begins by showing us Ronnie’s brutal murder but not showing who did the deed. Was it Frank? Then we cut to Liam, having spent most of the series in that bloody hyperbaric chamber while actress Jessica Raine has been given nothing beter to do, playing his mother Jules, than sit there and […]

Fortitude Episode 8 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 8 begins in the aftermath of Shirley vomiting into her Mum’s stomach, and she’s now outside… in the FREEZING cold, barefoot and bloodstained. Whatever she’s been doing in the interim, it’s happened offscreen, which is rather a swizz given how Sweet Fanny Adams has happened ONscreen for the majority of this dirge! So, […]

Fortitude Episode 7 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 7 takes us past the halfway point and I was promised this episode would FINALLY be good! That would make the first one, so far, then. It’s Chrrrrrrrrriiiisssttmaaaaaaassss! As Noddy Holder might say. And the bearded nutter who was holding a rifle, earlier in the series, is drinking aplenty. And he’s drinking with […]

Fortitude Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 6 starts with a flashback, jumping a few episodes back to when Frank was having it away with Elena. Jules is seen heading out without a hat on, and is chanced upon by Henry, who insists frostbite can severely knacker your ears and wants her to take his hat because he doesn’t live […]

Fortitude Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 5 didn’t really help the cause for this overhyped series as it was merely treading water throughout, at a time when the series, as a whole, has been doing little else. It starts off with Ronnie teaching his daughter all about glaciers while they’re surrounded by them, then cuts to Shirley chancing upon […]
