Leaving Neverland – The DVDfever Review – Michael Jackson documentary

Leaving Neverland, aka Leaving Neverland: Michael Jackson and Me tells us what we’ve all known for years: Michael Jackson sexually-abused children. Or do you think he’s innocent, and that he was the victim in all this? And if that’s the case, then what about others accused of such crimes, yet never caught and have since […]

Two For Joy – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Daniel Mays

Two For Joy begins with the last day of school for Vi (Emilia Jones, daughter of Aled Jones and she was brilliant opposite Guy Pearce in Brimstone), but life is far from easy for her. Her tearaway younger brother, Troy (Badger Skelton), is having seizures, and her mother, Aisha (Samantha Morton) has anxiety issues and […]

Alita: Battle Angel in IMAX 3D – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Alita: Battle Angel, originally was a manga known as Battle Angel Alita*. Quite why they’ve gone with this change, I don’t know and it’s never been explained, so I can only guess that it’s when cinemagoers turn to Google for their answers, this movie title comes up above the manga. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames […]

Green Book – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali

Green Book looked from the trailer like a colour-swap version of Driving Miss Daisy, as working-class Italian-American bouncer Tony Vallelonga – aka Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) – becomes the driver for African-American classical pianist Don Shirley (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse‘s Mahershala Ali) on a tour of venues through the Deep South in 1962. I was […]

Can You Ever Forgive Me? – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Melissa McCarthy in *good film* shocker?

Can You Ever Forgive Me? marked a rare departure for me – a return to actually WANTING to watch a Melissa McCarthy movie after the godawful 2016 Ghostbusters reboot, but that’s because this is (a) a drama, (b) she’s not shouting a lot, and (c) it looked pretty damn good. Will she turn me around […]

Vice – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Christian Bale

Vice opens on Sept 11th, 2001, as Dick Cheney (Christian Bale, above) is rushed into the Presidential Emergency Operations Centre, so he’s kept out of harm’s way, and then goes back to the start, in 1963, when he got into Yale and went on to meet his wife-to-be, Lynne (Amy Adams), and as the narration […]

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 […]

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 […]
