Being Frank: The Chris Sievey Story – Official Trailer

Being Frank
Being Frank: The Chris Sievey Story is a documentary I’ve been waiting so long for, and I’m hoping it actually does justice to the great man, best known for portraying Frank Sidebottom with his papier-mache head, whereas 2014’s Frank, starring Michael Fassbender, was so misguided, the master tapes should be burned along with every DVD and Blu-ray ever created from it.

Chris Sievey died aged just 54 in June 2010, and I posted an obituary here at the time about this man for whom no-one ever seemed to really know his age. That’s because, with the head on, he never looked any different.

Curfew Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Sean Bean

Curfew
Curfew is a new drama which felt from the trailer like it was being a remake of Death Race 2000, and it feels like so many people are driving trucks like Mick Jagger did in Freejack, which should put this drama’s timeline in 2009… but I doubt it is.

It’s also aiming for a Blade Runner-style feel where everyone’s business and houses all have shutters aplenty on their windows, and as the evening comes and the curfew kicks in – thanks to a mysterious virus that’s causing all sorts of problems, so those shutters come down, since it’s a lawless time and the police are more trigger-happy than a Los Angeles donut-muncher on a busy day.

This Time With Alan Partridge – Series Trailer – The DVDfever Review – Steve Coogan

This Time With Alan Partridge
This Time With Alan Partridge sees the presenter being handed a career lifeline – the chance to stand in (temporarily) as co-host on This Time, a weekday magazine show. But can he capitalise on the opportunity?

Due to the sudden illness of its regular host, BBC One magazine show This Time welcomes Alan Partridge as its guest presenter. A chance for the consummate broadcaster to flit effortlessly between seal pups, hand washing and cyberterrorism, and it begins on BBC One from Monday February 25th.

Episode 1 cast and crew details below, and the review will go online after the first episode has been broadcast:

Baptiste Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Tchéky Karyo

Baptiste
Baptiste marks the return of French detective Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo), who you’ll remember from The Missing, but after two series of that, they wanted to make a third (and it’s still on the cards), but it would be set in London, and how can you bring the man back across the water when he’s got crime to stop whilst on holiday in Amsterdam?

So, writers Harry Williams and Jack Williams (Liar) decided that if the mountain won’t come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain, and while I don’t want to refer to Mr Karyo as a mountain… look, you get where I’m going with this. After the end of The Missing Series 2 concluded with Julien Baptiste going under for an operation, and counting backwards and stopping at “trois”, a third series with him had to come about in some form, and here we are.

Two For Joy – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Daniel Mays

Two For Joy
Two For Joy begins with the last day of school for Vi (Emilia Jones, daughter of Aled Jones and she was brilliant opposite Guy Pearce in Brimstone), but life is far from easy for her.

Her tearaway younger brother, Troy (Badger Skelton), is having seizures, and her mother, Aisha (Samantha Morton) has anxiety issues and ends up leaving the running of the family to Vi, and she’s struggling to deal with the pair of them, especially with Troy who hangs around with local scally Kyle (Adam Young), who thinks nothing of catching a fish from the lake, battering it to death and then throwing it back, prior to robbing from the local corner shop with a knife.

Climax – The DVDfever Review – Gaspar Noé

Climax
Climax begins with an opening dance number, to a remix of Cerrone’s Supernature, which turns into an incredibly well-choreographed spin around the dance floor for everyone involved, so yeah, sod The Greatest Dancer on BBC1, since this is what you should be watching if that’s what you’re into.

However, after three days of rehearsal, it’s time to chill out and have a few drinks, but someone’s drugged the punch and they’re not feeling very good.

Triple Frontier – Trailer 2 – Ben Affleck

Triple Frontier
Triple Frontier now has a second trailer, and the film is released on Netflix on March 13th.
