The Crew 2 on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

The Crew 2
The Crew 2 is out now, but the first game was one of the worst that I have played for an awfully long time. The build up and excitement surrounding its release was larger than most, and it hurts when you feel as let down by a game as I felt whilst playing it. Nothing about it felt right. Within 10 minutes of playing this sequel, I understood that they had taken on board all of the criticism and amended their mistakes.

What this new entry offers is an extensive range of racing. Only an hour or two into the game, I had raced cars, trucks, off road, motocross bikes, boats, planes… and I could go on. Your aim is to become a top racer in whichever discipline you decide. To level up, you need to race all of the disciplines, unless you are going to take part in all of the little side challenges which I didn’t bother with at all. With each race you get extra subscribers/followers and it makes you more famous. The more famous you are, the more races you can do, and the more loot you can get, which all leads to better cars.

Skyscraper leads the new cinema releases and trailers July 13th 2018

SkyscraperThis week, there are SEVEN new films out for you to choose from: The Rock saves the day in Skyscraper, Ethan Hawke joins the clergy for First Reformed, CGI sequelitis comes with Incredibles 2, there’s British comedy/drama in Pin Cushion, a crime drama with Adele Exarchopoulos from Blue Is The Warmest Colour in Racer and the Jailbird, twee drama in The Butterfly Tree, and spooky family times for The Secret of Marrowbone.

Skyscraper sees Dwayne Johnson doing for The Towering Inferno what San Andreas did for Earthquake. His family get trapped up the building thanks to a bad guy, but can Dwayne save them? What do you think? 😉

Oh, and spot the obvious Die Hard rip-off moment!!!

And read our review here!

Hit or Miss? Verdict:

Skyscraper – Enjoy a nice, high piece of Johnson! – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Skyscraper
Skyscraper is an action movie that’s all about one man’s heroic efforts to get to see a movie with Dwayne Johnson at Vue Cinemas called Skyscraper… but I’ll get to that.

If you’ve seen the trailers, you’ll know Johnson (now taking over the crown from Arnie, Bruce and Stallone as the human special effect) plays a man with only one complete leg because the other is partially using a prosthetic. You find out how this comes about early on, but as well as one of his legs, something else that’s been missing from cinema screens, and for what feels like an eternity is Neve Campbell. He’s Will, she’s Sarah, and they have two annoying kids who are apparently twins, but like all cinema children, they look nothing like each other.

Rays’ Reprisal on ZX Spectrum – The DVDfever Review – Yars’ Revenge Remake

Rays' Reprisal
Rays’ Reprisal is a ZX Spectrum version of the Atari 2600 classic – but incredibly bizarre – Yars’ Revenge, a game which had a bizarre and pointless Xbox 360 version made back in 2011, so thankfully, we’re back in familiar territory, here.

ZX Spectrum? Yes, the homebrew scene is still alive and kicking for this and a number of other systems from the ’80s, such as the VIC-20 game Escape I reviewed recently.

First Reformed – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Ethan Hawke

First Reformed
First Reformed is the name of the church run by Rev. Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke), who begins to keep a diary for one year, with the intent that, after this time, he’ll destroy it. Quite why he starts is never explained, but then as well as it being a starting point for the story, it shows the randomness of life.

Picnic At Hanging Rock Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Natalie Dormer

Picnic At Hanging Rock
Picnic At Hanging Rock has made the transition from a novel and movie to a six-part series, co-funded by Amazon Studios, with Game Of Thrones and The Hunger Games‘ Natalie Dormer as the overly strict Mrs Appleyard, who buys a large mansion out in the Australian bush and labels it Appleyard College, where many young girls come to stay for a number of years.

I’ve never read the novel, nor seen the movie, so I’m flying blind a bit, and with a story that’s stretching out over six episodes, you can’t base an entire opinion over one-sixth of a movie, nor fully understand what’s going on, since while the lady speaks in fairly posh tones, she also has a Cockney voiceover, so I’m getting a feeling that’s a split personality.

Sharp Objects Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Amy Adams

Sharp Objects Sharp Objects is a new HBO mini-series, broadcasting in the UK on Sky Atlantic, which is based on the novel by Gillian Flynn, and published in 2006, and follows newspaper journalist Camille Preaker (Amy Adams – Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice), who’s pulled away from her reportings in her dilapidated living area of St Louis, in order to get to the bottom of the situation regarding two girls, Ann and Natalie, who were taken and brutally slayed, in a town called Wind Gap, which is also Camille’s hometown, and is even more dilapidated.

Given that this is a psychological thriller, things get rather weird, and Camille also drives a car that’s as dirty as mine (except with less mess inside). Then again, at least I don’t drink and drive! I also couldn’t happily soak in the bathtub in a motel where the room is manky as hell!

DeltaStar Earth Defence on ZX Spectrum Next – The DVDfever Review

DeltaStar Earth Defence
DeltaStar Earth Defence is a new shoot-em-up for the ZX Spectrum Next, which is similar to the arcade classic Galaga, with some elements of Phoenix, but with a make-over that mixes both 8-bit and modern-day elements, including an homage to the backdrops of arcade games of that era, such as when Space Invaders would have programmed into it just the moving spaceships and the crumbling shields, whilst the backdrop was a painted part of the artwork inside the machine. Here, it incorporates that style into the actual background.

First off, it’s almost impossible NOT to lose a life quickly on level 1! The green enemy ships are scary little buggers, the way they fly about and try to crash into you, and since you only have three lives, and since they take several shots each to die, this is NOT going to be an easy shoot-em-up!
