Whitney on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Whitney
Whitney comes around one year after 2017’s Whitney: Can I Be Me? which was a fascinating documentary about the lady, but even though I didn’t particularly care for her music, I’m always fascinated in a documentary to see what makes people in the public eye tick.

The opening with Whitney Houston singing How Will I Know? is meshed into a montage that is SO ’80s, before melding into the riots taking place in ’60s Newark, the singer’s home town. The film then takes a fairly standard run through her life from start to finish, from the beginnings of her career, through to her family and her father with whom she was often at odds, and with chat from friends and relatives, including her brother, Michael, and mother, Cissy Houston, a gospel singer, as well as archive comments from the late singer, too.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is out now, following on from 2016’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, and despite having two years to get round to watching any of the Harry Potter movies for the first time, since then, I still haven’t seen a single one. D’oh.

At the time of posting this, IMDB has it at 7.4/10 based on around 11,000 reviews, which isn’t high given that all the fanbois will have voted it 10 before they’ve even seen it.

Fallout 76 – It’s… a postcard

Fallout 76
Fallout 76 is out now and we’ve received… not a review code at this point but…a Reclamation Day postcard – relating to a main quest in the game. We knew something was coming, but not what, exactly. It’s kind of interesting, but not exactly a Pip-Boy…

If we do get a copy of the game for review, then we’ll bring you a review soon after. If not, we won’t.

In the meantime, here’s some pics of the postcard.

EltonJohnLewis – John Lewis Christmas advert 2018 – Bleah!

EltonJohnLewis
EltonJohnLewis – or Elton John / John Lewis, or #EltonJohnLewis in hashtag terms, since he’s starring in their Christmas advert for 2018, shows the singer of the same name (well, Reginald Dwight, actually), looking back on his career with reflective scenes that recreate key points in his life, right back to the moment when his family had their first piano – or was it given to him? It’s not clear.

Playstation Classic – Metal Jesus Rocks cancels his pre-order

Playstation Classic
Playstation Classc is coming to the UK on December 3rd, and retails for £89.99 in the UK, and $99.99 in the US, but one major Youtuber is not impressed…

Metal Jesus Rocks has 600,000 subscribers on Youtube and has cancelled his pre-order because he doesn’t like the games line-up, nor how it performs for those who have had a hands-on play with it.

Check out the video below to see which games, in his opinion, should’ve been included. Like myself, he definitely champions the omission of Wipeout as being a major issue.

Siberia – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Keanu Reeves

Siberia - The DVDfever Cinema Review - Keanu Reeves
Siberia is 105 minutes long which, on average, makes for the best length for a movie – not too short, and not way too long like most Hollywood fare of late, but can it make for the best film when this is one in which Hollywood heavyweight Keanu Reeves (John Wick) isn’t taking it to the silver screen? Well, it has a simulateous cinema and download release, but you’ll be unlikely to see such a limited release outside of London.

Dumplin’ – Trailer 1 – Jennifer Aniston

Dumplin
Dumplin’ is the nickname given by Rosie Dickson (Jennifer Aniston) to her daughter, Willowdean (Danielle Macdonald), who is a plus-size woman, while Rosie is a former beauty queen.

This prompts Willowdean to sign up for her mother’s Miss Teen Bluebonnet pageant as a protest that escalates when other contestants follow her footsteps, revolutionising the pageant and their small Texas town.

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle – Trailer 2 – Andy Serkis

Check out the new trailer below:

Missing Link – Trailer 1 – Hugh Jackman

Missing Link
Missing Link stars Hugh Jackman as the charismatic Sir Lionel Frost, who considers himself to be the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters. The trouble is none of his small-minded high-society peers seems to recognize this.

Sir Lionel’s last chance for acceptance by the adventuring elite rests on traveling to America’s Pacific Northwest to prove the existence of a legendary creature. A living remnant of Man’s primitive ancestry: The Missing Link.
