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 […]

First Love – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Takashi Miike

First Love is the third film I’ve seen from director Takashi Miike, who has made over 100 in his time. I loved Audition, but was woefully disappointed with Terra-Formars, so how does this one fare? Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from the same year. Running since […]

Parasite – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Bong Joon Ho

Parasite has won a number of gongs during Awards Season, but did it deserve them all, or was it just the Academy pandering to diversity and ticking boxes, as this time is the first ever that a foreign language film, or “Film Not in the English language” has won Best Film? And why is it, […]

In The Line Of Duty – The DVDfever Review – Aaron Eckhart, Ben McKenzie

In The Line Of Duty is a new cop thriller, which is simply called “Line of Duty” in the US, but…. y’know, the famous BBC series? This movie is certainly a world away from that, and cop Frank Penny (Midway‘s Aaron Eckhart, above) is so old-school that he still watches TV in his kitchen on […]

The Wolf’s Call – The DVDfever Review

The Wolf’s Call had a trailer which made this look like it could be as gripping as 1994’s incredible Crimson Tide, but did it? It centres around submariner Chanteraide (Frank‘s François Civil – above), aka Socks, who has the ‘golden ear’ and can detect an evil submarine at 50 paces… or something like that. Basically, […]

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker is out now and brings not only this new trilogy of films to a close, but also the entire nonet of films (yes, that’s the word for a collection of nine things, and yes, I had to look it up). Okay, I could’ve just said ‘The Entire […]

Angel Has Fallen – The DVDfever Cinema / Blu-ray Review

Angel Has Fallen is now out on Blu-ray, and I’ve updated my cinema review to include a look at the extras, which is later on in this review. The film 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 […]

The Courier – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Olga Kurylenko

The Courier is one of those films that goes straight to home release/streaming, despite having big hitters in the cast like Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), but as well as those two leads, one thing that drew me to this is that it’s an 18-certificate release in a world where […]

BFI 63rd London Film Festival Part 1 Review by Helen M Jerome

BFI 63rd London Film Festival Part 1: What a cornucopia of delights in this year’s London Film Festival. Rather remarkably there’s been a genuine move to get more female filmmakers than ever before showcased – and into all the awards shortlists too. And there are big name directors including Martin Scorsese, Noah Baumbach and Michael […]
