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 […]

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 […]

Lust For A Vampire on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Lust For A Vampire is a title for a ’70s movie that made me think that from the off, we’d get bloodletting aplent, thanks to fangs. Well, don’t celebrate too much, yet. The year is 1830, so everyone wears big stuffy clothes, although because this is a finishing school in the ’70s, the women get […]

Being John Malkovich Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Being John Malkovich: Even 20 years on, it’s hard to find a film that’s more bizarre in the entire history of the movies. Craig Schwartz (John Cusack, who had previously starred alongside the titular actor in Con Air) is a puppeteer who’s just not managing to make a viable business of his work, even though […]

Us on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Jordan Peele movie

Us is the latest film from writer/director Jordan Peele and it comes after his huge success with 2017’s Get Out, a film which was praised by all those big-name critics who just wanted to get their brands on the poster, even though it was a less-than-average effort, and also ripping off a number of films […]

Domino – The DVDfever Review – Brian De Palma

Domino is a new movie from Brian De Palma, a man who rarely puts a foot wrong, so how come this film, which boasts the credentials of starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Guy Pearce get a rating of 4.4/10 on IMDB? Cops Christian (Coster-Waldau – Headhunters) and Lars (Søren Malling – Borgen) are on the trail […]
