The Circle Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Reality TV show

The Circle
The Circle comes just as Big Brother is finally dying off after Channel 5 aquired it from Channel 4 in 2010, with their first series airing in 2011. Little changed and it was still the same sorts of idiots entering the house and shouting at each other. Since 2011, there’s been a new broom at the channel, and so with no more Richard Desmond to plug the dross in his dire ‘newspapers’, they’ve clearly had enough.

Big Brother has also been superceded by the idiots on Love Island on ITV2, who are prompted to have discussions on things like Brexit, which are then captured and edited and played out in the media as if it was an off-the-cuff conversation.

Stan and Ollie – Trailer 1 – Steve Coogan

Stan and Ollie
Stan and Ollie is a trailer which almost had me in tears for giving me memories of the late, great Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.

I’ve always loved watching their short films, which generally last around 25 minutes, of which The Piano must rank as one of their all-time best movies. However, it’s been over ten years since the BBC showed them on a regular basis. They could fill afternoon slots quite easily and cheaply, but they choose not to. In addition, if they shoved these on BBC iPlayer, they’d have huge ratings!

Captain Marvel – Trailer 1 – Brie Larson

Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel is, for some, one of the most eagerly awaited films after Avengers: Infinity War, given that it will follow on directly from the – possibly universe-changing – ending that it had… unless someone hits a big red reset button, like Doctor Who often does.

Capcom Beat Em Up Bundle on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Capcom Beat Em Up Bundle
Capcom Beat Em Up Bundle follows on from their recent Mega Man X Legacy Collection and Sega’s Megadrive Classics, by releasing a compilation of classic arcade games on modern systems.

Capcom have brought together seven button-bashing bonanzas, starting with Final Fight (1991), but you’ll be partaking in many fights. I don’t agree with hitting women, but in videogame land, you’ll get your ass kicked big-time if you don’t jump in. After all, the Mayor’s daughter’s life is at stake!

BFI 62nd London Film Festival Preview by Helen M Jerome

BFI 62nd London Film Festival Preview
BFI 62nd London Film Festival Preview: Five weeks before it even kicks off, this already has the feeling of a vintage year for the BFI London Film Festival. There wasn’t a seat to be had for the launch event in Leicester Square’s Cineworld in London’s West End, and such a buzz as the mouth-watering line-up was unveiled, boasting titles from some 77 countries, with 39 movies from the UK.

About time too, I hear you say when I tell you that half the films in the official competition are made by female filmmakers – with 60 per cent of those in the first film category from women. And across the entire roster, there’s 38 per cent either with female directors or co-directors. Yay!

The Predator – The DVDfever Cinema Review

The Predator
The Predator: Given how this movie ended, it seems that they certainly have ideas about taking this franchise further. So we can probably expect more movies like this one.

And when I say more movies like this one, I mean much like some of its predecessors, a perfectly good concept that is – unlike most of the victims of the iconic space alien – executed very poorly.
