Three Identical Strangers – The DVDfever Review

Three Identical Strangers begins with the story of Bobby Shafran, who starts college in 1980, at the age of 19, and as soon as he arrived, he’s mistaken for someone called Eddy, which turned out to be one of his triplets, of whom he knew absolutely nothing.

Freak Show – The DVDfever Review – Alex Lawther

Freak Show centres around teenager Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther – Ghost Stories), who dares to be different. He wants to cross-dress and gets noticed when he goes to school as Boy George.

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.

Hunter Killer on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Hunter Killer – I can’t say it’s ‘Die Hard on a submarine’, since (a) it’s not, and (b) that was claimed by the so-so Under Siege in 1992. You don’t watch Gerard Butler action films for their Oscar-winning scripts, but for the bangs and crashes. And both Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen were […]

Climax – The DVDfever Review – Gaspar Noé

Climax begins with an opening dance number, to a remix of Cerrone’s Supernature, which turns into an incredibly well-choreographed spin around the dance floor for everyone involved, so yeah, sod The Greatest Dancer on BBC1, since this is what you should be watching if that’s what you’re into. However, after three days of rehearsal, it’s […]

Alita: Battle Angel in IMAX 3D – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Alita: Battle Angel, originally was a manga known as Battle Angel Alita*. Quite why they’ve gone with this change, I don’t know and it’s never been explained, so I can only guess that it’s when cinemagoers turn to Google for their answers, this movie title comes up above the manga. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames […]

Polar – The DVDfever Netflix Review – Mads Mikkelsen

Polar is based on the Dark Horse graphic novel, to which I was not aware of prior to hearing about this film, but the premise is that when assassins retire at the imposed age of 50, they retire permanently… because they’re forced to do so with a bullet or three in their insides. As we’re […]
