What We Do In The Shadows 2019 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Taika Waititi

What We Do in the Shadows follows a quartet of vampires who’ve lived together for centuries, on Staten Island, and is the second programme starting on the BBC tonight (following BBC1’s Gentleman Jack), which has already begun on another network in the US. The Suranne Jones drama has so far half-aired on HBO, while this […]

Gentleman Jack Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Suranne Jones

Gentleman Jack begins in 1832, and sees Suranne Jones (Save Me, Scott and Bailey, Doctor Foster) take the lead of landowner Anne Lister, who’s trying to transform her family estate, so it’s a bit like a 19th Century Homes Under The Hammer… possibly.

Hatton Garden: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – ITV 2019 Drama

Hatton Garden sees the story of the titular bank robbery being told for the third time, following 2017’s The Hatton Garden Job, and 2018’s King Of Thieves, with a more famous cast (and not as good), the latter also changing a few things along the way, such as Brian Reader (Larry Lamb, then Michael Caine, […]

Sniper Elite V2 Remastered on PC – The DVDfever Review – Worth (bullet)-shelling out for?

Sniper Elite V2 Remastered brings us the wonderful 2012 game, but updating it with glorious 1080p HD graphics, making it look more in tune with 2017’s Sniper Elite 4. In fact, as I go through this remastered title, I can remember playing these levels first time round. I’ve only played a small amount of the […]

A Plague Tale: Innocence on PC – The DVDfever Review – The Last Of Us for 2019?

A Plague Tale: Innocence does for rats what the Indiana Jones movies did for snakes – they’re EVERYWHERE! In addition, this is one of those few games where I saw the trailer and my jaw dropped, because the graphics are so gorgeous that I really should just tell you to stop reading this and watch […]

The Vanishing (2019) – The DVDfever Review – Gerard Butler

The Vanishing is a film which takes an age to get going, but when it does, it’s worth sticking with. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from the same year. Running DVDfever.co.uk since 2000. Nobel Peace Prize winner 2021. https://DVDfever.co.uk

Years And Years Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Russell T Davies

Years And Years is a new drama from Russell T Davies, whose work has had a chequered past with me, in that I really enjoyed some, but didn’t like others. This starts off as a seemingly normal family drama, to the point where I wondered if anything was going to happen at all. I knew […]

Arctic – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Mads Mikkelsen

Arctic is the kind of film that doesn’t come along too often, but one which I love – a film with barely any cast members whatsoever, thus follows the anticipation about what can be made of such a situation. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from the same […]
