Leave No Trace on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Leave No Trace
Leave No Trace centres around Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), who have been living off the grid in a huge park where they largely keep out of the way of society, although sometimes they do hide in plain sight, such as a trip on the Portland tram, or going down the shops.

The premise is that they’ve been doing for some time, and it’s fairly early on when they’re discovered, and that’s fine for this film as you get the idea it’s been a long-term situation for them, and so don’t need to sit through an hour of forest living to have that brought across to you.

Hitman 2 (2018) on PC / Steam – The DVDfever Review

Hitman 2
Hitman 2 (2018) feels very much like a Bond film when it starts up on the Prologue level, as Agent 47 comes into view on a night boat to a beach house to track down some info on a particular baddie, but as luck would have it, they soon return and your mission changes to require you to bump them off in as inconspicuous a way as possible. As you’ll see from my uploaded video, I went for a rather loud and stand-out way to get rid of them, but I did try the alternative of…

Pokemon Detective Pikachu – Trailer 1 – Ryan Reynolds

Pokemon Detective Pikachu
Pokemon Detective Pikachu – where to begin… oh dear..

I never got into the Pokemon craze, and couldn’t give too hoots about the toys, the movies, the cartoons, nor even the original videogames.

However, lots of kids do, and this includes those who are buying the recent Pokemon Detective Pikachu videogame for the Nintendo 3DS.

Toy Story 4 – Teaser 1 – Tom Hanks

Toy Story 4
Toy Story 4 is coming whether you want it or not. Personally, these films are not my bag. I’ve seen bits of them here and there, but anyone who reads my posts will see that animation rarely does it for me, and it has to stand out to make me sit up, like Kubo and the Two Strings and Your Name.

No plot is yet stated, and the teaser just shows the cast dancing to Both Sides Now which was written by Joni Mitchell, but the first release was by Judy Collins and it’s Ms Collins’ version which is here. As for the teaser, it’s more like an announcement video, but IMDB states that Woody and Buzz will embark on a quest to find Woody’s romantic interest, Bo Peep. How thrilling…

Stan Lee – Marvel Supremo dies aged 95

Stan Lee
Stan Lee is an icon in the world of movies and comic books and if you’ve never heard of him, you’ve never lived.

Although I’m just one for movies rather than comic books, he was the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, prior to becoming the publisher and chairman, but it was together with the late, great Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko that they created characters like Doctor Strange, The Hulk, Daredevil, Black Panther, X-Men and the Fantastic Four (even if those films were forgettable), while alongside co-writer Larry Lieber, who recently turned 87, they brought us Thor, Ant-Man and the iconic Iron Man.

They Shall Not Grow Old – The DVDfever Review – Peter Jackson

They Shall Not Grow Old
They Shall Not Grow Old is a new film commissioned for the 100th anniversary of the First World War, known at the time as The Great War, with the plan to take original footage from the war and the words of the soldiers from back then and create a narrative based around it.

Of course, any such video is not going to be in a great state, but if any man can take on the challenge and succeed, it’s the visionary Peter Jackson (The Hobbit) with his team at Wingnut Films. This leads to brilliantly-restored footage showing the whites of their eyes, as well as being colourised and retro-fitted into 3D. In fact, it’s just after 25 minutes that the colour first kicks in (following commentary-only), along with the recreated audio and dialogue, and a lot of it really feels like it was shot this year.

Kerblam – Doctor Who Series 11 Episode 7 – Trailer

Kerblam
Kerblam, is the seventh episode of Doctor Who Series 11, and has a trailer which shows the Scooby Doo gang are in the galaxy’s equivalent of Amazon, aka of the galaxy’s largest retailer, Kerblam. There they’ll meet Julie Hesmondhalgh (Broadchurch, Coronation Street) and Lee Mack… I do hope he dies. Can’t stand him!

Demons of the Punjab – Doctor Who Series 11 Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review

Demons of the Punjab
Demons of the Punjab sees the Scooby Doo gang run back to August 1947 Pakistan for the partition of India. Yaz wants to go so she can interfere with history and meet her grandmother, Umbreen, when she was much younger than she was today, making me think we’re just going to get a fairly dull history lesson – and a lack of ‘Doctor Who’-style action – like Rosa.

Well, as soon as they arrive, they meet the man who’s about to marry Umbreen, but… it’s not Yaz’s grandfather so, basically, it’s Back to the Future, and Lorraine Baines is about to marry Biff Tannen and NOT George McFly like she should do. Can the Scooby Doo gang change the past and restore the future? GREAT SCOTT!

Rang-tan – Iceland banned Christmas 2018 advert

Rang-tan
Rang-tan was Iceland’s intended Christmas 2018 advert, but it’s been banned.

What is a Rang-tan? I had no idea before now, but it’s an orangutan, and a young girl finds he’s in her bedroom for seemingly no apparent reason…

Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now, and after the success of Red Dead Redemption, a sequel eventually had to happen. After the tearaway success of GTA V, what could Rockstar possibly do to follow on from that? Almost anything would be pale in comparison! After an announcement in late 2017, Red Dead Redemption 2 was officially unveiled to much fanfare, and this had all of us fans wanting it to arrive sooner rather than later!

This time around you play Arthur Morgan who is one of Dutch’s gang members. The events of this game are set prior to the first game, and sees you on the run from the botched ferry heist. The gang has to flee from their hideout in Blackwater across the mountains and set up camp near a small town called Valentine. This is the first town you will see in the game, after your escape from the law. A rival gang named the O’Driscolls is holed-up locally during your escape. Dutch and a few of his men go to the cabin they are using and you end up taking out a few of the outlaws.
