Le Mans 66 (aka Ford v Ferrari) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Le Mans 66 (aka Ford V Ferrari, in the US, and some other countries) looks at the relationship between Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and Ken Miles (Christian Bale). Shelby won the 24hr Le Mans in 1959, then immediately retired due to health reasons, before selling and designing cars. This leads to him managing Miles, who […]

Zombieland: Double Tap on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Zombieland: Double Tap begins brilliantly, as the Columbia lady is approached by two zombies and smacks them both to death with her torch, then twirls it about and holds it aloft once again 🙂 Early on, however, one thing is odd – only three of the main four cast members get a namecheck above the […]

Joker on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Joaquin Phoenix

Joker (Joaquin Phoenix), aka Arthur Fleck, tells himself to ‘put on a happy face’, but as he admits at one point, he’s never been happy for his entire life. But that’s the tears of a clown for you, and we first see him putting make-up on in front of the mirror before going out on […]

Doctor Sleep Director’s Cut on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – The Shining sequel

Doctor Sleep is one reason why I don’t watch so many films at the cinema, these days. As well as the fact that most of the more interesting fare just doesn’t get the space on the big screen that it should, amongst a depressing slew of pedestrian superhero movies, a number of films have one […]

Sorry We Missed You on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Ken Loach

Sorry We Missed You is the latest movie from Ken Loach to shine a much-needed spotlight on the problems that blight today’s society, as did 2016’s I, Daniel Blake. Similarly, he appeared on Question Time in late 2019 explaining what would happen if Boris Johnson got into power. And it has. Well done, Tory voters(!) […]

Escape from Pretoria – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Daniel Radcliffe

Escape from Pretoria is the South African Prison Break! Set in 1979, the film begins with freedom fighters/terrorists (take your pick) Tim Jenkin (Daniel Radcliffe – Horns, Imperium) and Stephen Lee (Daniel Webber, above-right with Radcliffe and Mark Leonard Winter, left) being jailed for setting off bombs in public places – alebeit ones that exploded […]

The Peanut Butter Falcon on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Peanut Butter Falcon centres around Zak (Zachary Gottsagen), a young man with Down’s Syndrome lives in a care home, but longs to be a wrestler. First, he must escape the clutches of his care home, and thanks to the help of fellow inmate Carl (Bruce Dern), he makes a break for it, much to […]

Roma: Criterion Collection on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Roma is a bizarre film which I was really looking forward to, but which veers beyond essential and quite the opposite, mainly because it’s at its best when we follow the story of live-in maid Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio, above), but then feels rather baggy when the focus is on other characters, as their family-based stories […]

Relaxer on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Relaxer gives us something we’ve never seen before: a movie where Abbie is a character portrayed by a man. Okay, so his name is really Abner, but sticking with it, this Abbey (Joshua Burge) is approaching the year 2000 – when we were told we’d get the Y2K apocalypse – by playing Tony Hawk Skateboarding […]

Holiday on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Victoria Carmen Sonne

Holiday begins with young Sascha (Victoria Carmen Sonne) arriving at the Turkish Riviera, being picked up by Bobby (Yuval Segal), on behalf of her new beau, drug lord Michael (Lai Yde), and does herself no favours when she helps herself to some of his dodgy money. However, while she’s seeing him, she also has a […]
