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 […]

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 […]
