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 […]

They Shall Not Grow Old – The DVDfever Review – Peter Jackson

They Shall Not Grow Old is a new film commissioned for the 100th anniversary of the First World War, known at the time as The Great War, with the plan to take original footage from the war and the words of the soldiers from back then and create a narrative based around it. Of course, […]

Bohemian Rhapsody – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Bohemian Rhapsody – Mamma Mia! Mamma Mia? NO! Bohemian Rhapsody! This new film brings us Queen from their beginning in 1970, through the song on which the film’s title is derived (which was mostly slammed by critics at the time), and up to and including their 1985 Live Aid concert. If you’re looking for a […]

King Of Crime – The DVDfever Review – Mark Wingett (The Bill)

King of Crime (aka Milk and Honey) is a film I was looking forward to once I heard it starred The Bill stalwart, Mark Wingett (above), aka Jim Carver. Alas, no sooner had it begun than there were problems Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from the same […]

First Man – First Bore? – The DVDfever Cinema Review

First Man is a film which I really wanted to see in 70mm IMAX scenes in full-height (1.44:1), for the lunar scenes, which is normally the preserve of 70mm screenings, such as last year’s Dunkirk. However, Vue Printworks have chosen this dumb time to ‘upgrade’ from 70mm to Laser IMAX, and while the upgrading aspect […]

Blue Iguana – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Sam Rockwell

Blue Iguana is one of those films where I’m not really sure *what* I watched, but I know I really enjoyed it, as all the scenes put one after the other don’t feel like the sum of their parts, and the film does, at times, feel less than coherent, but at the heart of it […]

BFI 62nd London Film Festival Preview by Helen M Jerome

BFI 62nd London Film Festival Preview: Five weeks before it even kicks off, this already has the feeling of a vintage year for the BFI London Film Festival. There wasn’t a seat to be had for the launch event in Leicester Square’s Cineworld in London’s West End, and such a buzz as the mouth-watering line-up […]

The Predator – The DVDfever Cinema Review

The Predator: Given how this movie ended, it seems that they certainly have ideas about taking this franchise further. So we can probably expect more movies like this one. And when I say more movies like this one, I mean much like some of its predecessors, a perfectly good concept that is – unlike most […]

Lucky – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Harry Dean Stanton

Lucky is the name given to character portrayeed by the late, great Harry Dean Stanton, who clearly must have earned it because how does he manage to get such a clean shave from an electric shaver? Or perhaps there’s another explanation? Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from […]
