The Prodigy – Teaser 1 – Taylor Schilling

The Prodigy
The Prodigy just has a teaser out at the moment, and the old man you see talking the most, looks like he wishes he was Steven Berkoff, but *no-one* can be Steven Berkoff. Only Steven Berkoff can be Steven Ber… you get the idea.

The synopsis states that a mother concerned about her young son’s disturbing behaviour thinks something supernatural may be affecting him, so there’s not a huge amount to go off so far, but this may be worth a look and I’ll await a full trailer in due course.

Escape Room – Trailer 1 – Adam Robitel

Escape Room
Escape Room centres around six strangers who find themselves in circumstances beyond their control, and who must use their wits to survive, and in this time of low-budget film, there’s not a well-known name amongst them, although director Adam Robitel did bring us the recent Insidious Chapter 4: The Last Key

The tagline emblazons: Solve the puzzle. Escape the room.

The Little Drummer Girl Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Michael Shannon

The Little Drummer Girl
The Little Drummer Girl is a new six-part drama which begins in West Germany, 1979, at the Diplomatic Residential area, Bad Godesbury where, thanks to an unfortunate set of circumstances, a bomb goes off with devastating circumstances.

As the synopsis states, there are a number of deadly attacks targeting prominent Jewish figures across Europe over the course of a number of weeks, and senior Israeli intelligence agent Martin Kurtz (Michael Shannon) – who is the man who knows what’s going on when it comes to the bad guys, believes there is a Palestinian revolutionary causing all the trouble, his aim being to nail the kingpin, Khalil (Charif Ghattas).

Top Video Games Transformed Into Movies

Top Video Games Transformed Into Movies
There is a misconception among many people that it’s only movies which can be adapted into video games. Those who think along this line assume that it’s impossible to transform a game into a movie. However, that line of thinking is not correct. While it’s indeed true that movies can be adapted into video games, it’s also true and possible for video games to be transformed into movies as you are to see below.

The Bombing (Air Strike) on DVD – The DVDfever Review – Bruce Willis

The Bombing
The Bombing (aka Air Strike) takes place in China where everyone is obsessed with an annual Mahjong contest, despite floods, droughts and, now, World War II. I thought I’d signed up to watch an action movie, not ‘Play Chess (’80s daytime series). Similarly, the dialogue feels like something from a bad soap opera, and even in one scene when a couple are meant to be upset about the death of their child, I’ve not seen acting like that in 25 years – since Eldorado was cancelled. Now, I loved Eldorado back in the day as it was cheesy and fun, but it wasn’t what I’ve come here to see.

Arachnids in the UK – Doctor Who – Series 11 Episode 4 – Trailer

Arachnids in the UK
Arachnids in the UK is the fourth episode of Doctor Who Series 11, as well as clearly being a play on the Sex Pistols’ classic Anarchy In The UK.

The gang are back home in Sheffield but something’s going awry with the spiders in the city, and Chris Noth (Big in Sex and the City) was seen screaming, so he’ll have a hand in the proceedings…. maybe it was his hand that caused the scream. It certainly seemed rather painful.

Rosa – Doctor Who Series 11 Episode 3 – The DVDfever Review

Rosa

Rosa takes us back to 1955, Montgomery, Alabama, where Rosa Parks (Vinette Robinson) took a stand and boarded a bus by the entrance designated for white people, but this episode doesn’t quite start out that way, and with the Doctor telling Rose that she’s a big fan of hers before she’s taken that stand – on the day before she does so – and similarly, when I first saw the trailer for this, it made me think of a particular Quantum Leap episode, and less a Doctor Who episode.

That QL episode was The Colour of Truth, when Sam Beckett leapt into the body of a black chauffeur, and all the racial prejudices he faced.

Dakar 18 on Xbox One – The DVDfever Review

Dakar 18
Dakar 18, and rally videogames are great, right? Well, soon after starting a race, I quickly went off the track and into the desert, and didn’t know where I was meant to go as there’s no map in the bottom-right, just a set of rather odd icons in the form of a series of roadbook notes.

Taking in an element from the tutorial, and part of the game actually involves getting out of the car, and walking in the mud, to help tow other cars out of the mud. Huh? I thought this was about rally racing? On the plus side, it’s fairly straight forward to do, as you just walk up to the front of their car, press A to hook on a tow rope and then get back in your own car. This takes forever and – basically – it was NOT fun. In fact, I gave up and just restarted the race, partly down to frustration and partly down to the fact my car was becoming ‘as one’ with theirs, blending together like something out of cult 1990 horror movie Society.
