BFI 62nd London Film Festival Preview by Helen M Jerome

BFI 62nd London Film Festival Preview: Five weeks before it even kicks off, this already has the feeling of a vintage year for the BFI London Film Festival. There wasn’t a seat to be had for the launch event in Leicester Square’s Cineworld in London’s West End, and such a buzz as the mouth-watering line-up […]

The Predator – The DVDfever Cinema Review

The Predator: Given how this movie ended, it seems that they certainly have ideas about taking this franchise further. So we can probably expect more movies like this one. And when I say more movies like this one, I mean much like some of its predecessors, a perfectly good concept that is – unlike most […]

Apostasy on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Apostasy is defined as “abandonment or renunciation of a religion by a person” and is what happened to one of the characters within. I’m not at all religious, but I’d heard a lot of good things about this film. Ivanna (Benidorm‘s Siobhan Finneran) is heavily religious, making younger daughter Alex (Molly Wright) feel guilt-tripped into […]

Madame on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Madame may boast Toni Collette (Wanderlust) and Harvey Keitel (Reservoir Dogs) as its leads, Anne and Bob, a well-off American couple who are about to host a big dinner for lots of people, but the two that drew me into this are Rossy de Palma as Maria, and the always engaging Michael Smiley (Free Fire) […]

Lucky – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Harry Dean Stanton

Lucky is the name given to character portrayeed by the late, great Harry Dean Stanton, who clearly must have earned it because how does he manage to get such a clean shave from an electric shaver? Or perhaps there’s another explanation? Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from […]

Racer And The Jailbird on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Pointless Break?

Racer And The Jailbird tells of the relationship between racing driver Bénédicte Delhany (Adèle Exarchopoulos – Blue Is The Warmest Colour) and bank robber Gigi Vanoirbeek (Matthias Schoenaerts – Red Sparrow), known to their friends as Bibi and Gigi.

Entebbe on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Entebbe is also known as 7 Days In Entebbe, since the film was given two titles due to events spending that amount of time in that Ugandan airport after terrorists hijack the Air France Flight 139, which was headed from Tel Aviv to Paris, with them joining at the point when the plane was on […]

The Producers 50th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Producers is one of those films I’ve never seen before, but now is getting a Blu-ray 50th Anniversary Edition release and as with a number of recent titles such as Birdman of Alcatraz and The Defiant Ones, it’s good to use this moment to catch up with what has been deemed a classic over […]

Revenge – The DVDfever Review – The ‘Kill Bill’ Tarantino should have made!

Revenge made me think one important question: Remember when Quentin Tarantino used to make great films? For me, it’s been almost ten years, as Inglourious Basterds was that film for me, and before that, Jackie Brown. So, step forward writer/director Coralie Fargeat taking a literal shot at the crown with this much more engaging ‘Roaring […]

How to Talk to Girls at Parties on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

How to Talk to Girls at Parties has shown me one first: Hawaiian-born and Australia-raised Nicole Kidman with a Cockney accent… and shouting “We Are England!” Hmm… It’s 1977 – the year of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, and schoolboys Enn (Alex Sharp), John (Ethan Lawrence) and Vic (AJ Lewis) stumble upon the weirdest party, which […]
