Atomic Blonde – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Atomic Blonde kicks off with a bang as MI6 agent James Gasciogne (Sam Hargrave) and evil KGB agent Yuri Bakhtin (Jóhannes Jóhannesson) have words, leading to the former coming off worse in shocking circumstances and on the orders of a mysterious double agent in Berlin, called Satchel (played by… not telling). Told in flashback, we […]

The Snowman – Trailer 1 – Michael Fassbender

The Snowman is far from a charming Raymond Briggs animation this time, but centres around Detective Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender), investigating the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman… Plus, she’s lost her head. This trailer looks quite a silly thriller, which marks a departure for MF’s usual […]

Atomic Blonde – Red Band Trailer 1 – Charlize Theron

Atomic Blonde centres around undercover MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron), who’s sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent, and recover a missing list of double agents… but more interestingly, there’s punching and kicking and swearing aplenty and it looks fantastic. Apparently, she’s the crown jewel of […]

The Witness For The Prosecution (2016) Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – BBC Drama

The Witness For The Prosecution is one of many TV and film adaptions based on the original Agatha Christie short story, based in London, August 1923. Emily French (Kim Cattrall) is a wealthy woman with an embittered maid, Janet McIntyre (Monica Dolan) and a penchant for younger men, her latest dalliance being Leonard (Billy Howle), […]

Tale Of Tales on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

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 Secret Agent Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Secret Agent is mild-mannered shopkeeper Verloc (Toby Jones), who’s been doing some work for the Russian Embassy along the way, but now there’s a new broom at the office in London, First Secretary Mr Vladimir (David Dawson), and he’s going to have to earn his keep by doing more than just half-assed investigatory work […]

Dad’s Army (2016) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Dad’s Army – the sheer mention of a movie remake of a once-classic TV series was enough to strike fear into the hearts of the nation. Probably more so than the threat of another World War… I never got into the TV series as it was rather past my time, even though many of an […]

Morgan – Official Teaser Trailer #1 – Kate Mara

Morgan is definitely a character who looks to be a suitable case for treatment in what appears as an intriguing sci-fi thriller starting with this teaser which gives away just enough to tempt you, and stars Kate Mara as a corporate risk-management consultant who has to decide and determine whether or not to terminate an […]

Tale of Tales – Official Trailer #1 – Salma Hayek

Tale of Tales looks to be like a Grimm’s fairytale that goes just a bit further to be as less syrupy-sweet as possible, and so, for me, might actually be worth watching. It’s director Matteo Garrone’s first English-language movie and interweaves three separate story strands bookended by brief bits in which Italians Alba Rohrwacher and […]
