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, […]

Free Fire – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Free Fire has a simple premise – an arms deal goes wrong. Tetchy people with itchy trigger fingers lead to guns being shot when it really wasn’t necessary, as everything was almost about to go smoothly, despite gun dealer Vernon (District 9‘s Sharlto Copley) supplying the wrong type of weapon. Set in 1970s Boston (but […]

Free Fire – Official Red Band Trailer 1 – Brie Larson

Free Fire is the latest Ben Wheatley movie, following the critically-acclaimed High-Rise and great movies such as Kill List and Sightseers. This one is set in Boston in 1978, where there’s no honour amongst thieves or gangster-types as one group go to buy guns from the other group, and clearly things go wrong as, in […]

Orthodox on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Orthodox centres around Stephen Graham as Benjamin, a boxer-turned-butcher who’s still forced to fight because money is tight. The recession has hit his family business hard, so in order to make ends meet, long-time friend Shannon (Michael Smiley) arranges underground Ronnie Pickering-style bare-knuckle face-bashing events for him to take part in, and, when push comes […]

Brian Pern: The Complete Series 1-3 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Brian Pern is the prog-rock brainchild of Rhys Thomas OBE and The Fast Show‘s Simon Day, and this boxset takes in all three series – The Life of Rock, A Life in Rock and 45 Years of Prog and Roll – each of which comprised of just three episodes… not enough, but then I’d rather […]

The Lobster on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Lobster, sadly, didn’t win the Outstanding British Film at the BAFTAs, as that went to Brooklyn, but if it were available, it would easily win the ‘Weirdest Film’ award of the past year. The premise is simple – Colin Farrell is David, one of a number of individuals who have to go to The […]

The Lobster – the perfect Anti-Valentines Day movie?

The Lobster is out this week on Blu-ray and DVD and saw the fantastic Olivia Colman being awarded the winner of Best Supporting Actress at the British Independent Film Awards. This darkly funny love story stars Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz with a stellar supporting cast including Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, John C Reilly, Olivia […]

Luther Series 4 Episode 2 – The DVDfever Review

Luther Series 4’s conclusion began with apparent clairvoyant Megan (Laura Haddock) passing on Alice’s message as: “Tell John that Stacey Bell has the owl”, referring to a woman who killed her grandma when she was 17, and was something he only ever discussed with Alice, so how did she know? Was she a real medium […]

Luther Series 4 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Luther Series 4 began with DCI John Luther still in a dark place after losing his partner, DS Justin Ripley (Warren Brown), which led me to hope that Series 3 would be followed by a movie going back in time, rather like a prequel. However, this sB018G7NUUUeries is a two-parter over two weeks which still […]

Luther Series 4 Trailer – BBC One – Idris Elba

Luther, John Luther. Rather like “Bond, James Bond”. Go on, give Idris Elba the role next time! Anyhoo, in the meantime, the actor, DJ enthusiast and Sky supporter returns this Christmas in a new two-parter, which is technically the fourth series, although they’ve got shorter over time. Series 1 was 6-parter, while series 2 and […]
