Supermarket Sweep 2019 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Rylan Clark-Neal

Supermarket Sweep was a regular fixture of the ITV morning schedule, inbetween GMTV and This Morning, and only lasted thirty minutes, but if you’re going to bring something back, you have to make it run for an hour, these days as there’s schedules to fill. And this time round, it’s returning as early-evening entertainment. Sadly, […]

Temple – The DVDfever Review – Mark Strong

Temple stars Mark Strong as surgeon Daniel Milton, whose wife, Beth (Catherine McCormack), has died and this leads him to running an operating room from underneath the Temple Underground station in London, which is a perfectly natural reaction, yes? However, there are some people who can’t wait to be top of the NHS waiting list, […]

Scarborough Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – BBC sitcom

Scarborough did have a couple of things against when I first heard about it: While I loved the first two series of Derren Litten‘s Benidorm – which were 30-minutes per episode and was packed with comedy, he then switched it to hour-long episodes which felt limp by comparison, and so, series 3 competely lost me. […]

The Capture Episodes 1-3 – The DVDfever Review – Holliday Grainger

The Capture is a new cop drama which begins with some CCTV of a man kissing woman, then a bus goes past, and then something is seen but what is it? We’re not shown, but once the opening credits are over, it goes back to 18 hours earlier… Here, soldier Shaun Emery (Callum Turner) is […]

A Confession Episodes 1 & 2 – The DVDfever Review – Martin Freeman

A Confession is based on the true story from March 2011, when Elaine Pickford’s (Siobhan Finneran – Apostasy) daughter, Sian, hasn’t come home and no-one knows where she is. As such, she cuts her holiday in the country short and comes home and finds police standing in her house as she arrives. Dom RobinsonReviewer of […]

Amazing Grace on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Aretha Franklin

Amazing Grace is not the Aretha Franklin documentary I was expecting, but with this concert film being released in the year after her untimely death, we instead get a concert featuring the lady, plus drummer Bernard Purdie, guitarist Cornell Dupree, Bassist Chuck Rainey and record producers Jerry Wexler and Arif Mardin. Director Sydney Pollack filmed […]

Ion Fury on PC – The DVDfever Review

Ion Fury is out now, and the Build Engine brings some great memories back with the likes of Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, Exhumed (aka Powerslave), Redneck Rampage & Shadow Warrior to name a few old school titles that use it. It’s also the first game to actually use this engine in 19 years the last […]

The Rob Rinder Verdict Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Channel 4

The Rob Rinder Verdict takes Judge Rinder‘s Rob Rinder (since that’s his first name) and gives him a news-based panel show which wasn’t available for preview as it’s filmed very close to transmission. There were references to Jeffrey Epstein, Prince Andrew, Boris Johnson, Donald Trump, and so on, and I thought this would be quite […]

Under The Silver Lake on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Under The Silver Lake surprised me right off the bat with some sharp direction with the camera moving about in directions I wasn’t expecting, and some sounds from the thunderous opening score of the 1991 Cape Fear remake, such that it feels like. So, we’re not in for a straight forward ride, here. In fact, […]

Flight Of The Navigator Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Flight Of The Navigator shows that only an ’80s movie can begin with a series of dogs catching frisbees in their mouths. And for an ’80s movie, it’s somehow set in 1978, at the South Florida Frisbee Dog Championship, on Independence Day. Yes, all the soldiers died in wars over the years so that your […]
