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). She also takes the lead as Tina, a mother whose life is in turmoil her daughter, Emma (Sennia Nanua), is being bullied at school, she and husband Mick (Shaun Parkes) are trying to pay the bills by working […]

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 […]

Amazing Grace on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Aretha Franklin

Amazing Grace is not the Aretha Franklin documentary I was expecting, but with this concert film being released in the year after her untimely death, we instead get a concert featuring the lady, plus drummer Bernard Purdie, guitarist Cornell Dupree, Bassist Chuck Rainey and record producers Jerry Wexler and Arif Mardin. Director Sydney Pollack filmed […]

Under The Silver Lake on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Under The Silver Lake surprised me right off the bat with some sharp direction with the camera moving about in directions I wasn’t expecting, and some sounds from the thunderous opening score of the 1991 Cape Fear remake, such that it feels like. So, we’re not in for a straight forward ride, here. In fact, […]

Flight Of The Navigator Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Flight Of The Navigator shows that only an ’80s movie can begin with a series of dogs catching frisbees in their mouths. And for an ’80s movie, it’s somehow set in 1978, at the South Florida Frisbee Dog Championship, on Independence Day. Yes, all the soldiers died in wars over the years so that your […]

Angel Has Fallen – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Angel Has Fallen follows on from 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen, which I thought was brilliant, and 2016’s London Has Fallen, which I found to be even better, so where did things go wrong with Angel Has Fallen? The film starts off well enough (well, after 15 minutes of padding, which made me wonder when the […]

The White Crow on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Ralph Fiennes

The White Crow, we’re told at the start, defines the title as an idiom used to describe a person who is unusual, extraordinary, not like others, and an outsider… and Rudolf Nureyev (newcomer Oleg Ivenko) definitely wants to get outside as his ultimate intention is defect from Russia to France. Although he has talent, he […]

The Third Wife on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Nguyen Phuong Tra My

The Third Wife is what May (Nguyen Phuong Tra My, above) has become to a wealthy landowner in rural Vietnam in the late 19th century. We’d all love to marry someone wealthy, but is there a catch? She’s only 14. It is also a time and place where in some situations, you wouldn’t meet your […]

Dragged Across Concrete on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Dragged Across Concrete is a film I was really looking forward to watching, particularly because Brawl In Cell Block 99 completely blew me away. Not only was Brawl… a fantastic plot-driven piece with some juicy 18-certificate violence where required, but it also changed the way I thought about Vince Vaughn. I only knew him for […]
