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 […]

The Bombing (Air Strike) on DVD – The DVDfever Review – Bruce Willis

The Bombing (aka Air Strike) takes place in China where everyone is obsessed with an annual Mahjong contest, despite floods, droughts and, now, World War II. I thought I’d signed up to watch an action movie, not ‘Play Chess (’80s daytime series). Similarly, the dialogue feels like something from a bad soap opera, and even […]

The Captain on DVD – The DVDfever Review – World War II drama

The Captain is set in Germany, April 1945, two weeks before the end of World War II, so potentially unfortunate timing for the events which are about to happen. Willi Herold (Max Hubacher) is a German soldier who’s rather less committed to the Furher’s cause because he’s a deserter and looter, but one who comes […]

Last Year In Marienbad on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Last Year In Marienbad is almost 60 years old, and when I saw the trailer for thie recently, I half expected Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse to pop up as if to make a spoof out of it, since the film looks like one of those classics which inspired 1980’s-style Calvin Klein perfume adverts. This […]

The Goodies: The Complete BBC Collection on DVD – The DVDfever Review

The Goodies were a trio I loved watching when growing up with Kitten Kong and the giant Dougal from The Magic Roundabout chasing them round outside being particularly memorable. While I won’t have seen them all back in the day, and without having the capacity to ‘binge’ on a boxset as is the modern want, […]

Madame on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Madame may boast Toni Collette (Wanderlust) and Harvey Keitel (Reservoir Dogs) as its leads, Anne and Bob, a well-off American couple who are about to host a big dinner for lots of people, but the two that drew me into this are Rossy de Palma as Maria, and the always engaging Michael Smiley (Free Fire) […]

Terminal on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Terminal is a film I never *got* from the trailer, but it looked great and had a decent cast including Margot Robbie, so it was one I certainly wanted to give a whirl. Firstly, if you are going to watch this very twisty-turny-plotted movie, to avoid spoilers, DO NOT read the cast list on IMDB. […]

Fanged Up – The DVDfever Review – Dapper Laughs

Fanged Up is a new British horror comedy which I was invited to watch, in the knowledge that it stars Daniel O’Reilly, the infamous man behind Dapper Laughs. This is the sort of invitation which would send most people running for the hills, but while lad culture was once a ‘thing’, and his style of […]

Dark Crimes on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Dark Crimes shows that as much as Jim Carrey can be a great comedian, he excels in drama, and if you’ve never seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, directed by the great visionary that is Michel Gondry, you are missing a treat. As for what sort of crimes can get committed in this world […]

The Cured on DVD – The DVDfever Review

The Cured has an interesting premise in that, after a zombie outbreak, someone managed to cure a number of them, so they can rejoin the rest of society… but are they REALLY cured? What do you think?! After all, why else would they make such a film? 75% are deemed fine, including Abbie’s (Ellen Page) […]
