Gwendoline Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Tawny Kitaen

Gwendoline
Gwendoline is a film I wanted to check out because… y’know, Tawny Kitaen (above centre). She was the better half of Whitesnake’s David Coverdale for a while after appearing in his band’s videos in the late ’80s. Here, she’s similarly attired.

Before I get into the plot, such that it is, rest assured this is the full version of the movie, at 105 minutes long, whereas the US theatrical version was just 89 minutes, and was given the crazy-long title of “The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak“, so brevity would certainly have helped, but then overlong titles like that were part of the ’80s – see the Indiana Jones titles, for example.

The Party’s Just Beginning – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Karen Gillan

The Party's Just Beginning
The Party’s Just Beginning is Karen Gillan‘s directorial debut, as well as writing it, and it’s great to see her making a low-budget indie flick, rather than constantly going for the big movies such as Avengers: Endgame.

Seberg – Trailer 1 – Kristen Stewart

Seberg Seberg… Jean Seberg… yeah, me neither.

Inspired by real events about the French New Wave darling and Breathless star, Jean Seberg, who in the late 1960s was targeted by Hoover’s FBI, because of her political and romantic involvement with civil rights activist Hakim Jamal.

Free Guy – Trailer 1 – Ryan Reynolds

Free Guy Free Guy is the film which looks, to me, like it’ll put the godawful Ghostbusters 3: Afterlife in the shade, as Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool 2 – my favourite film of 2018) plays bank teller Guy who inadvertently discovers that he’s actually an NPC – aka non-player character – inside a brutal, open world video game.

If you’re not sure what this means, then watch the trailer, and see that while a video game goes on, say as when you play one yourself, he is one of those incidental people standing around doing nothing who’ll take the brunt of whatever you throw at them, such as firing a rocket launcher in Grand Theft Auto.

Ghostbusters 3: Afterlife – Trailer 1 – Bill Murray

Ghostbusters 3 Ghostbusters 3: Afterlife is the official third movie since the 2016 female reboot was a complete dumpster fire. The original crew said they’d never do a third one as time droned on, but then those who are still acting threw away all their principles and jumped in for that reboot, for the shameless cash-in, and it was embarrassing.

So, hopes are not high for this movie.

Of course, Harold Ramis is no longer with us, so that leaves Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray. And they’re not even in this first trailer which is more like a teaser. Man, this looks like a stinker!

Synopsis: When a single mum and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.

Ghostbusters 3: Afterlife is released in the UK on July 10th 2020.

Director: Jason Reitman
Writers: Gil Kenan, Jason Reitman
Creators: Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis
Stars: Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray, Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, Paul Rudd, Annie Potts, Sigourney Weaver, Finn Wolfhard, Bokeem Woodbine, Oliver Cooper

The Witcher – Character Introduction videos – Netflix – Henry Cavill

The Witcher The Witcher is a new Netflix series based on the successful videogame franchise – including The Witcher III: Wild Hunt – which I personally haven’t played, but does look interesting, and from what I’ve seen of gameplay, it does look like they’re aiming for an accurate reflection of the world.

Henry Cavill eschews Superman in favour of the lead role as Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.

Intellivision Amico – Breakout demo video released!

Intellivision Amico Intellivision Amico is coming on October 10th 2020, and today, Intellivision have released a cool new trailer for the Atari classic, Breakout!

I do wish this was a playable demo, but either way, check it out below as it makes me feel like the kind of futuristic thing I’d have loved in the ’80s as shown in the movies from the time…. and which has never left my head ever since 🙂

Dora and the Lost City of Gold on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Dora and the Lost City of Gold
Dora and the Lost City of Gold is the Dora The Explorer movie, and the character is a 7-year-old Latina girl, and she’s been 7 ever since the show began in 2000, so who better to play her than someone TEN years her senior. Yes, at the time of filming the actress was 17 years old, and she is Isabela Moner from Transformers: The Last Knight (where she was Izabella) and Sicario 2: Soldado, she was Isabel. So, in this one, she is Izzy Dora. Nah, I jest.

Well, in this film her character is actually six, turning 16, and the lead now calls herself Isabella Merced, for no apparent reason. Who knew this could get so complicated?

Wonder Woman 1984 – Trailer 1 – Gal Gadot

Wonder Woman 1984 Wonder Woman 1984 is the long-awaited (for some) sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman, even though I preferred Justice League.

Gal Gadot is back, and somehow, Chris Pine is back. How? We don’t know yet, and I don’t really care. He’s also the same age he was in World War 2 in the first film, and even though he blew up. Wish I could manage such a feat!
