Tombstone Rashomon on DVD – The DVDfever Review – Alex Cox

Tombstone Rashomon is a new Alex Cox movie where… well, it was technically released in 2017, but is just coming to the home market now, so it was new to me. Everyone remembers what went down at Tombstone, when Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer took part in the Gunfight at the OK Corral, resulting in […]

Villain on DVD – The DVDfever Review – Craig Fairbrass

Villain is a rare thing in cinema these days – an 18-certificate. Too many studios steer away from it, sometimes reducing violence and other scenes in a bid to get a 15-certificate, even if it means compromising artistic integrity. Then again, that extends mainly to mainstream Hollywood cinema, and not indie movies like this, which […]

Primal on DVD – The DVDfever Review – Nicolas Cage

Primal sees the prolific Nicolas Cage back onscreen as Nicolas Cage, but this time he’s animal hunter Frank Walsh, in the Brazillian jungle, exporting a 400lb jaguar back to the US on the same ship as political assassin Richard Loffler (Kevin Durand – Resident Evil: Retribution 3D), who’s being taken back at the behest of […]

Balloon – The DVDfever Review – World War II drama

Balloon takes us up, up and away… eventually, in a World War II tale of two families based in East Germany who would rather be in West Germany, because the Nazis are nasty. The first home-made balloon attempt fails, so they have to make a second, but the film goes on far long than is […]

Kaleidoscope – The DVDfever Review – Toby Jones

Kaleidoscope gives us Toby Jones (Marvellous, Don’t Forget The Driver) as Carl, who lives in a flat that looks like it hasn’t been redecorated since the ’70s. In fact, as he wakes up from a drunken stupor, there’s an awful lot that just isn’t making sense (especially, in my eyes, the fact that a typical […]

Lost In London – The DVDfever Review – Woody Harrelson

Lost In London was fascinating from the trailer, since it’s a film that was shot in just one-take. It reminded me of the superb 2015’s Victoria, starring Laia Costa, which did the same thing, although in that case, they filmed it 3 times over 3 nights, and the final one was the best take and […]

The Guilty – The DVDfever Review – Jakob Cedergren

The Guilty centres around Danish emergency services call operator Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren, above), who at first comes across as far from understanding when he gets a call from someone who’s taken drugs and is having a bad trip, saying it’s their own fault. Before long, he gets a mysterious call from Iben (Jessica Dinnage), […]

Speed Kills on DVD – The DVDfever Review – John Travolta

Speed Kills joins Backtrace in a January UK premiere which stars Matthew Modine in a film which has received stinking ratings on IMDB, but then so did Allure and Dark Crimes, and both of those films were great! So how does this one fare? In the opening scene, I thought John Travolta – as speedboat […]

Tag (2018) on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Tag seemed rather childish from its premise, as lifelong friends have, annually during the month of May, been playing the same titular game since they were… children. In its opening scene, it was already beginning to lose me as Hogan ‘Hoagie’ Malloy (Ed Helms) takes a job as a janitor, does something to irritate black […]

Leave No Trace on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Leave No Trace centres around Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), who have been living off the grid in a huge park where they largely keep out of the way of society, although sometimes they do hide in plain sight, such as a trip on the Portland tram, or going […]
