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 […]

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

BFI 62nd London Film Festival Part 2: Having delivered our verdict on the biggest, splashiest releases from the 2018 London Film Festival in Part 1 of our annual round-up, in Part 2 we now turn your attention to the very best of the rest. 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 […]

BFI 62nd London Film Festival Part 1 Review by Helen M Jerome

BFI 62nd London Film Festival Part 1: Hold onto your hats. We are mixing up our London Film Festival coverage this year, which also gives us the chance to pick out our favourites. Our extensive LFF 2018 preview got quite a few things right – also applauding the fact that loads of female filmmakers were […]

Mary Poppins Returns – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Is it Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?

Mary Poppins Returns is set 20 years after the 1964 original, and this time, the Banks are having more problems – especially with their bank, since while Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) lives in the family home with his three children, an unwise investment with Wonga has led to the bank wanting to foreclose, and to […]

The House That Jack Built – Sick! Depraved! Brilliant! – The DVDfever Cinema Review

The House That Jack Built is a film for which I knew absolutely nothing when I first saw the trailer. Seemed like a fairly straight-forward drama at first, with Matt Dillon reluctantly pulling over for Uma Thurman, as her car had broken down and she was having trouble with the jack. Then she inadvertently says […]

London Korean Film Festival 2018 Review by Helen M Jerome

London Korean Film Festival 2018: One of the best films at the glittering, main London Film Festival 2018 was undoubtedly the enthralling-twisting-turning Burning, starring Steven Yeun in his first Korean-language feature. And thankfully, the quality of the Korean Film Festival itself was equally strong and varied. When I started going to the LKFF way back […]

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is out now, following on from 2016’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, and despite having two years to get round to watching any of the Harry Potter movies for the first time, since then, I still haven’t seen a single one. D’oh. At the time of posting […]

Siberia – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Keanu Reeves

Siberia is 105 minutes long which, on average, makes for the best length for a movie – not too short, and not way too long like most Hollywood fare of late, but can it make for the best film when this is one in which Hollywood heavyweight Keanu Reeves (John Wick) isn’t taking it to […]
