Free Solo – The DVDfever Review

Free Solo
Free Solo is a film I wish I’d seen on an IMAX screen, but although I missed it in the cinema, luckily, it was quick for it to come to the small screen, even though my small screen is fairly big.

The part that you’re most wanting to know about is the climb itself, as then-31-year-old Alex Honnold took his climbing obsession to his ultimate test, which was to ascend El Capitan, in Yosemite National Park, which many have climbed – with ropes, but he’s the only one to date who has managed to do it ‘free solo’, i.e. without ropes. Hence, if he slips, he falls, and that’s the end of him.

Abominable – Trailer 1 – Chloe Bennet

Abominable
Abominable is another of those lazy CGI movies for kids where nothing of consequence happens, this time, centering around a magical Yeti, who must return to his family, like you do.

The Art of Racing in the Rain – Trailer 1 – Kevin Costner

The Art of Racing in the Rain
The Art of Racing in the Rain has a trailer which started off okay, but then turned into one of those stupid “Dog voiced by human” movies, where Kevin Costner voices a dog named Enzo, who recalls the life lessons he has learned from his race car driving owner, Denny (Milo Ventimiglia).

Summer Of Rockets Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Keeley Hawes

Summer Of Rockets

Summer Of Rockets is a new Stephen Poliakoff drama set around the beginning of the Cold War, circa 1957/58, and while I’ve not really been able to get into his earlier works, this one did seem quite accessible from the start.

It follows Russian Jewish inventor Samuel Petrukhin (Toby Stephens) who’s living with family in Britain, and the clever guy invents a staff locator, which is a pager, really. Accompanied by his colleague, Courtney (Gary Beadle), he also makes a packet by selling his version of the hearing aid, which is the first ever to include a volume control, and has a number of wealthy clients including one to Winston Churchill, who’s now in his post-PM days.

The Flood – Trailer 1 – Lena Headey, Iain Glen

The Flood
The Flood gives us Lena Headey (Fighting With My Family), as Wendy, a hardened immigration officer who’s offered a high-profile asylum case, judged on her ability to quickly and clinically reject applicants. Through her interrogation, she must uncover whether Haile (Ivanno Jeremiah) is lying and has a more sinister reason for seeking asylum.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood – Trailer 2 – Quentin Tarantino

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood now has a second trailer, and I definitely want to see this, but again, Tarantino can’t keep a rein on the length of a film as this one runs to 2hrs 39 minutes, according to IMDB.

The film is out in the UK on August 14th, but the US get it earlier on July 26th.

Check out the trailer below:

Downton Abbey 2019 – Trailer 1 – Hugh Bonneville

Downton Abbey 2019
Downton Abbey 2019 – The spin-off movie now has a full trailer, and the King and Queen are coming to tea. Yes, the family that gets it all for free now leeches off everyone else. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Much like the makers of this tripe.

The precise plot isn’t yet known, though, as it just states: “Adapted from the hit TV series Downton Abbey that tells the story of the Crawley family, a wealthy owner of a large estate in the English countryside in the early 20th century.”

The film is out on September 13th.

Check out the new trailer below:
