Red Sparrow (Censored) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Red Sparrow
Red Sparrow brings us Jennifer Lawrence as Dominika Egorova, an expert ballet. Have you suffered a trip or fall at work? Could you claim compensation? Call Claims Direct now, since that’s what befalls this Russian lady who doesn’t look at all Russian.

Anyhoo, this stops her from being able to continue, but being out of work won’t pay the bills for her flat, or the healthcare for her mother, so she needs a few occupation, which leads her into working for some shady KGB-style organisation, the “Sparrow School”, and with Dominika having Uncle Vanya Egorov (Matthias Schoenaerts) as the man giving her the assignments, it’s like an alternate version of Nikita, as Dominika has some unconventional training and then gets into her mission, which involves American CIA agent Nate Nash (Joel Edgerton).

Tomb Raider 2018 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Tomb Raider 2018 Tomb Raider 2018 is out now on Blu-ray, DVD and all formats to view at home and for when you journey all over the world, like Lara Croft and she’s reborn in the guise of the 2013 reboot game, of which I was not a big fan, unlike the 1996 original and a number of its sequels. I seemed to be in a small number when it came to that reboot, however. As for this film, and given that the Angelina Jolie movies were passable at best, this was clearly one of the movies I was least looking forward to, this year.

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.
