Bagdad Café on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Bagdad Café is a slice-of-life drama that’s very weird. Early on, Jasmin Münchgstettner (Marianne Sägebrecht, below) seemingly splits from her husband after an argument, and with nothing better to do, she beds down at motel that’s part of the nearby, titular cafe until she can figure out her next move. While there, she encounters owner […]

The Mooseman on PC – The DVDfever Review

The Mooseman is the person you’re playing in this game, and it’s a game that I didn’t really understand – in fact, it’d take longer to figure that out and write about it, but I’ll have a go, and in short, it’s a puzzler. Best to check out some gameplay first, as you’ll walk along […]

Hang Ups Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Stephen Mangan

Hang Ups is, effectively, another of those ‘one room’ comedies, this one the house of Richard Pitt (Stephen Mangan), a therapist whose business collapsed, so today is Day One of working from home (so, a whole house rather than just a room, but it’s mostly what we see through the ‘eye’ of his laptop camera), […]

Terminal on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Terminal is a film I never *got* from the trailer, but it looked great and had a decent cast including Margot Robbie, so it was one I certainly wanted to give a whirl. Firstly, if you are going to watch this very twisty-turny-plotted movie, to avoid spoilers, DO NOT read the cast list on IMDB. […]

Studio 54 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Studio 54 was the New York club that everyone wanted to go to, from 1977 until its closure in February 1980. It did reopen in later years, for various periods of time, but never as a permanent venture. This film tells the story of its life during the disco era of the late ’70s – […]

Birdman Of Alcatraz on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Birdman of Alcatraz is another of those classics from yesteryear which I never got round to watching, so now I’m glad it’s out on Blu-ray so I can see it in the best shape possible. The film begins in the then-present day with narration from the deep-voiced Tom Gaddis, who wrote the novel based on […]

Wonderstruck on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Wonderstruck is a difficult film to describe because there’s not an awful lot lappening. Ben (Oakes Fegley, above middle) is a child in 1977 whose mother has passed away, and he’s in New York to look for his father. Meanwhile, Rose (Millicent Simmonds) is a child of the same age, and in the same place, […]

Ant-Man And The Wasp – Can this small sequel win big? – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Ant-Man and the Wasp is released tomorrow in UK cinemas and before I discuss it, I will say that I was NOT a fan of the first one, but since I go into each film with an open mind, can the sequel be an improvement? In the pre-Marvel logo scene (which always appears instead of […]

Age Before Beauty Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Robson Green

Age Before Beauty proves that yet again, if it’s Tuesday night on BBC1 at 9pm, it’s “TV for women” hour… and this new drama has lots of them working in a beauty parlour. As the meme goes: Change my mind! Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from the […]

Journeyman on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Journeyman centres around Matty Burton (Paddy Considine), boxer who is about to take on the biggest fight of his life, and it follows the death of his father. He’s up against young upstart, Andre Bryte (Anthony Welsh) – aka Andre The Future. Can an old dog teach a cocky dog new tricks? Whatever the outcome, […]
