King Of Thieves on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

King Of Thieves is strange in its existence. 2017 brought us The Hatton Garden Job, a movie about the titular bank heist where old men robbed the bank over the Easter weekend of 2015, the team containing Larry Lamb, Clive Russell, Phil Daniels and David Calder, so that’s just four. This new film retreads the […]

The Nun (2018) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Nun is set both before the Conjuring movies (which I have seen) and the Annabelle movies (which I haven’t), but as every continuation of strangely successful movies comes along, they’re always prequels so that’ll make them more accessible to everyone who hasn’t been around since the first, even though I can see some elements […]

Distorted – The DVDfever Review – John Cusack, Christina Ricci

Distorted is one of those films with lots of weird stuff going on to the point where as soon as the film begins, Lauren (Christina Ricci) is a gibbering wreck for reasons not yet explained, and which I won’t spoil as it’s a good while before that happens. I was almost the same since in […]

Backtrace on DVD – The DVDfever Review – Sylvester Stallone

Backtrace opens with a deal going sour over money, and idiots pulling guns on each other. Every now and again, I lower my expectations distinctly for straight-to-DVD release like this. Backtrace. They’re not aiming for a Hollywood budget, and thus, can sometimes recoup their costs and even spawn sequels like my worst movie of 2018, […]

The 12th Man – The DVDfever Review – Jonathan Rhys Meyers

The 12th Man takes place in 1943 during World War II, at a time when Hitler had established “Festung Norwegen” (Fortress Norway), aka building heavy defences and fortification as they occupied Norway, thus Operation Martin Red was launched on March 24th, where twelve Norwegian Resistance fighters set sail for Norway. Given the circumstances which are […]

Alpha Director’s Cut on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Kodi Smit-McPhee

Alpha Director’s Cut is out now and, before watching this, and upon realising in the menus, I didn’t even know there was a Director’s Cut version of this film as it’s not listed on the packshot. Similarly, IMDB doesn’t list any alternative version, but just to confirm, the Theatrical version runs 96 minutes and 30 […]

Yardie on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Idris Elba

Yardie starts off with gang violence in Kingston, Jamaica, and the wars between the Tappa and Spicer gangs, with D – aka Dennis (Aml Ameen) narrating the story as he sees his friends cut down in their prime, as well as children being killed, showing how depressing it is that such atrocities can take place. […]

Bros: After The Screaming Stops – The DVDfever Review

Bros: After The Screaming Stops brings the twin brothers back together to perform at the O2 in Wembley, 28 years after they first performed at Wembley. But that’s nothing! I was at one of their first ever gigs, and certainly their first warm-up gig for their first tour, at the Manchester Apollo in 1988. The […]

BFI 62nd London Film Festival Part 2 Review by Helen M Jerome

These other runners and riders might get less attention from the […]

Happy New Year, Colin Burstead – The DVDfever Review

Happy New Year, Colin Burstead comes from Ben Wheatley who usually provides us rather off-the-wall movies such as Free Fire, Sightseers and A Field In England, so there’s always something going on, it’s almost always entertaining, and they’re pretty brief. This latest one, which was shown at the London Film Festival and now is only […]
