Sicario 2: Soldado – Better than the first? – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Sicario 2: Soldado was a film for which I didn’t even know was planned, until the first teaser came out, so I was certainly looking forward to this, as the first movie was great. Plus, given the weather, I was tempted to ask the cinema to turn off the air-conditioning, so it would actually FEEL […]

Loveless on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Loveless is a film that, at the start, tells an intensely strong tale of a relationship’s break-up, and if, as a child, you’ve been through the same situation, it really resonates. What’s causing the split? Neither Zhenya (Maryana Spivak) nor Boris (Aleksey Rozin) is entirely blameless, but these two parents are so wrapped up in […]

The Defiant Ones on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Defiant Ones does its best for race relations when the van containing a bunch of convicts, including John ‘Joker’ Jackson (Tony Curtis) and Noah Cullen (Sidney Poitier), crashes off road and the pair go on the run. Conflicting themes come up at that point, since not only does the crash involve a toy truck […]

Welcome To Curiosity on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Welcome To Curiosity centres around a serial killer on the loose called Lee Hunting. The cops are on the hunt, and, within 90 minutes, this will also take in four stories that cross over each other. The plot’s fairly standard stuff – good guys, bad guys, double-crossing, and a shoot-out where someone jumps over a […]

Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager centres around the former England football manager, but while the film lasts 99 minutes, the late, great man says at the start, “I remember everything. How long have you got(?)” Beginning in 1995, he talks about gonig to see the doctor about his sinuses, but how this turned out […]

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – Another dino movie? Hollywood finds a way… – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is another sequel with a meaningless subtitle. Beforehand, I was anticipating yawning and a lot of watch-checking, and thinking that the only plus is that it’ll take people away from Solo: A Star Wars Story, as Disney really need to be taught a lesson, but then people have already given that […]

Journey’s End on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Journey’s End takes place towards the conclusion of World War I, for a few days from Monday, 18th March 1918 onwards, in St Quentin, Northern France. There’s a stalemate, and the Germans want to break this. It’ll mean an attack from their side, but as each company of soldiers must spend 6 days, out of […]

Den Of Thieves on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Den Of Thieves: When I first heard of this, I couldn’t see how it could last almost two-and-a-half hours, as I don’t think most films should run more than two, but was I right? Well, to my surprise, this is one of those films where the extended running time gives the plot room to breathe. […]

Downsizing on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Downsizing is all about miniaturising people to save the planet. If they’re smaller, they’ll use up less resources, and they can kiss goodbye to the alleged problem of man-made global warming. Since the individuals taking part would be reduced by a ratio of 2744:1, which we learn makes them 0.364% of his original size (although […]

Early Man on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Early Man takes us back to the dawn of man, with lead character Dug (Eddie Redmayne) looking very much like the cheese-loving Wallace with his goofy teeth. Baddie of the piece goes to Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) wanting to mine the ground, and it becomes a cross between the dawn of time and ancient Rome. […]
