A Simple Favour on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

A Simple Favour (or A Simple Favor for those who don’t know how to spell) is one of those films for when I want to try and prove myself wrong, and since I’ll want to see as many films as I can, this sometimes involves this sort of challenge. Blake Lively can’t act, Paul Feig […]

King Of Thieves on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

King Of Thieves is strange in its existence. 2017 brought us The Hatton Garden Job, a movie about the titular bank heist where old men robbed the bank over the Easter weekend of 2015, the team containing Larry Lamb, Clive Russell, Phil Daniels and David Calder, so that’s just four. This new film retreads the […]

The Nun (2018) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Nun is set both before the Conjuring movies (which I have seen) and the Annabelle movies (which I haven’t), but as every continuation of strangely successful movies comes along, they’re always prequels so that’ll make them more accessible to everyone who hasn’t been around since the first, even though I can see some elements […]

Onimusha Warlords on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Onimusha Warlords resurrects the 2001 Playstation 2 hit which somehow passed me by, and while I know there’s a series of games based around this, I’ll just stick to talking about this one for this title, which follows in the fasion of remastering old titles with a new lick of paint, similar to 2017’s Crash […]

Distorted – The DVDfever Review – John Cusack, Christina Ricci

Distorted is one of those films with lots of weird stuff going on to the point where as soon as the film begins, Lauren (Christina Ricci) is a gibbering wreck for reasons not yet explained, and which I won’t spoil as it’s a good while before that happens. I was almost the same since in […]

Backtrace on DVD – The DVDfever Review – Sylvester Stallone

Backtrace opens with a deal going sour over money, and idiots pulling guns on each other. Every now and again, I lower my expectations distinctly for straight-to-DVD release like this. Backtrace. They’re not aiming for a Hollywood budget, and thus, can sometimes recoup their costs and even spawn sequels like my worst movie of 2018, […]

The 12th Man – The DVDfever Review – Jonathan Rhys Meyers

The 12th Man takes place in 1943 during World War II, at a time when Hitler had established “Festung Norwegen” (Fortress Norway), aka building heavy defences and fortification as they occupied Norway, thus Operation Martin Red was launched on March 24th, where twelve Norwegian Resistance fighters set sail for Norway. Given the circumstances which are […]

Brexit: The Uncivil War – The DVDfever Review – Benedict Cumberbatch

Brexit: The Uncivil War centres around one man I hadn’t thought too much about – Dominic Cummings (Benedict Cumberbatch – yep, there’s a double-dose of Cum this time!), campaign director for Vote Leave, one of the campaigns to leave the European Union. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor […]

Alpha Director’s Cut on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Kodi Smit-McPhee

Alpha Director’s Cut is out now and, before watching this, and upon realising in the menus, I didn’t even know there was a Director’s Cut version of this film as it’s not listed on the packshot. Similarly, IMDB doesn’t list any alternative version, but just to confirm, the Theatrical version runs 96 minutes and 30 […]

Cleaning Up Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Sheridan Smith

Cleaning Up sees ITV kicking off the new drama year with the reliable Sheridan Smith as Sam, a single parter with a grumpy ex. She’s stuck in a horrible cleaning job with an over-demanding boss, and also has a gambling addiction to the point where she’s even playing roulette games on her mobile while driving. […]
