They Live Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

They Live Special Edition is one of four John Carpenterclassics being re-released in late 2018, on Blu-ray, 4K Blu-ray and DVD, and this is the second of the four I haven’t seen before. The late, great Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrowdy Roddy Piper takes the lead as day-labourer John Nada, who susses out that there’s a lot of weird […]

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.

The Fog Special Edition is one of four John Carpenter classics being re-released in late 2018, on Blu-ray, 4K Blu-ray and DVD, and this is one of the four I haven’t seen before.

Edie on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Edie stars Sheila Hancock in the titular role as an elderly lady who’s been caring for her husband for as long as she can remember, since he had a stroke years earlier, but once widowed, she gets to the point where it’s time to sell up and movie on, and after looking back on old […]

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 […]

Troll 2 is set in a town called Nilbog (which is ‘goblin’ backwards), where the Waits family participate in an early Air BNB-style situation as they go to live in a house that’s clearly been inhabited by people affected by the trolls, and now they’re all about to fall victim to the same curse, but […]

Troll and Troll 2: The Complete Collection on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Troll takes place in San Francisco, preying on the residents of an apartment block, which is actually the enchanted gateway to the ancient world of Troll… not that they know it yet.

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 […]

Monkey Shines: An Experiment in Fear Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Monkey Shines: An Experiment in Fear was released in 1998 in the US, but didn’t see the light of day in the UK until the following year, which was quite a regular occurence back then, as there wasn’t the internet to force the hand of the studios to release films around the world on the […]
