Japan with Sue Perkins – The DVDfever Preview

Japan with Sue Perkins takes us to a country I’ve wanted to visit for so long, and it’s also the first time for this host, and the journey starts in Tokyo, the Sacred Forests of the Kii Peninsula, Kyoto and Hiroshima. However, given that she has three weeks to spend there, why do we only […]

Defending The Guilty – The DVDfever Preview – Katherine Parkinson

Defending the Guilty is a new BBC courtroom sitcom which saw a pilot episode produced last year, but this completely passed me by. Did I miss a gem? The first episode in this six-part series is that very same pilot, so you can find out for yourself… Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since […]

Remnant: From the Ashes on PC – The DVDfever Review

Remnant: From the Ashes is out now, and I love new I.P.s, as they can take us right out of our modern gaming comfort zone, especially with first- and third-person shooters. On top of that, it is great to see something a bit different instead of a years-old tried and tested formula – I’m looking […]

Control on PC – The DVDfever Review

Control shows Remedy are back with a new I.P. after the success of both Alan Wake and American Nightmare, followed by Quantum Break, in recent years. This time round they have brought us another story-rich single-player experience, which is exclusive to the EPIC Store on PC but also available on both Xbox One and PS4 […]

Heavy Rain on PC – The DVDfever Review

Heavy Rain is a game which came out during the PS3 generation, in 2010, and which rather passed me by at the time as story-based games weren’t really quite my bag. However, I later played Quantic Dream’s Beyond Two Souls on PS3 and loved it. It got some poor reviews by some press, but that […]

Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out – The DVDfever Review – BBC Three

Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out tells of the pop star’s time from 2011 onwards when she was put into the band Little Mix on X-Factor. All four of them were told they HAD to have social media accounts, and while it can be used for good, she soon discovered “everyone had an opinion on me” […]

Top Boy Season 1 (2019) – The DVDfever Review

Top Boy Season 1 is here. It’s finally happened! Well, it’s technically Series 3, but Netflix have rebooted the series and labelled the original two series as Top Boy: Summerhouse. Either way, it’s taken the might of Netflix and rapper Drake to bring this about, after Channel 4 dumped it after series 2 in 2013. […]

Double Date on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – British horror comedy

Double Date is a British horror comedy which came out for a limited cinema run in October 2017, but I’m so glad that it’s finally got a Blu-ray and DVD release for reasons I shall explain below. It centres around two women on dates with a difference – they’re homicidal murderers. Yes, if you’ve ever […]

The Fight – The DVDfever Review – Jessica Hynes

The Fight is the directorial debut of Jessica Hynes (Shaun of the Dead, Spaced, Years And Years).

Long Shot on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Charlize Theron

Long Shot looks like the kind of comedy I’ve seen a zillion times, but I’d heard good things about it, even though 125 minutes does seem way too long for comedy. About 100 minutes should be the max. In this, Seth Rogen (50/50) plays himself, but here, as Fred Flarsky, a journalist who’s about to […]
