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.

Check out the trailer below:

Ma – Trailer 1 – Octavia Spencer

Ma
Ma looks to be a rather ridiculous forthcoming psychological horror-thriller from Blumhouse, who made us suffer 2017’s Get Out (yes, it was terrible. If you thought otherwise, you’re wrong)

At first, I thought this was going to turn into a daft comedy as the titular Ma (Octavia Spencer) started off by agreeing to buy some beer for a group of teenagers, but then she let hem them party at her house, and while they thought things couldn’t get any better, suddenly, they’re all running for their lives.

Long Shot – Trailer 1 – Charlize Theron

Long Shot
Long Shot looks to be rather a rarity – a slacker comedy which actually looks pretty decent, but also one of those films you’ve clearly pretty much seen from the trailer, although as Charlize Theron aims to become President in 2020, we know it’s going to be Trump again.

Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is a gifted and free-spirited journalist with an affinity for trouble. Charlotte Field (Theron) is one of the most influential women in the world. Smart, sophisticated, and accomplished, she’s a powerhouse diplomat with a talent for…well, mostly everything. The two have nothing in common, except that she was his babysitter and childhood crush.

Traitors Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Keeley Hawes

Traitors
Traitors is a new World War II drama which looked stylish from the trailers, and I thought was going for an Allied-style approach, as that’s a modern WW2 movie, but is it as entertaining in its own right?

Well, it’s sort-of WW2, since it’s 1945 and the war is coming to a close. You’d think people would be pleased, but young Fiona ‘Feef’ Symonds (Emma Appleton) was looking to join the civil service and wanted to travel, and her options are limited if there are no longer any baddies.
