No Time To Die – James Bond 25’s official title


No Time To Die is the official title for the 25th James Bond movie… but I really don’t care. I preferred it when we didn’t get so many details dripped out in advance. It’s like being drip-fed the names of the boneheads in Strictly Come Dancing.

Tom Holland – Sacked from Spider-Man?

Tom Holland Tom Holland is currently the man in the Spider suit, but could things change after today’s news?

Sony, for me, had a couple of pretty decent Spider-Man films with Andrew Garfield as the webslinger, namely 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man and 2014’s imaginatively-titled sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. I actually enjoyed the latter of the two more, even if it did tease that it was going to end with a fight between Spidey and Rhino, and just ended right at that moment – that’s typical Hollywood lazy teasing… and for a third movie which never came because Sony sold their soul to Disney.

The White Crow on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Ralph Fiennes

The White Crow
The White Crow, we’re told at the start, defines the title as an idiom used to describe a person who is unusual, extraordinary, not like others, and an outsider… and Rudolf Nureyev (newcomer Oleg Ivenko) definitely wants to get outside as his ultimate intention is defect from Russia to France.

Although he has talent, he clearly has a fair bit of arrogance since, after although he’s not picked for the first night’s performance out of all the ballet dancers available, he still maintains it won’t be long until everyone knows his name. In fact, note that that arrogance could go to the point where some could quite easily jeopardise their entire career.

Google Stadia – Gamescom Connect Livestream

Google Stadia
Google Stadia showed off a new Connect Live Stream at Gamescom, today, and as it began, the first thing I learned is that, like with BBC’s Click, no-one seems to have the ability to simply point the camera and shoot, as well as actually LOOK at the camera, since Ray Bautista was sometimes looking into it, then sometimes looking in a different direction. Why all the faffing about?

Shanna Prevé (above) was up next and, like Treguard in Knightmare, she was unable to blink.

The Third Wife on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Nguyen Phuong Tra My

The Third Wife
The Third Wife is what May (Nguyen Phuong Tra My, above) has become to a wealthy landowner in rural Vietnam in the late 19th century. We’d all love to marry someone wealthy, but is there a catch? She’s only 14. It is also a time and place where in some situations, you wouldn’t meet your husband until the actual wedding day! Plus, some daughters are sold for a dowry, making it feel more like the times of Henry VIII!

Dragged Across Concrete on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Dragged Across Concrete
Dragged Across Concrete is a film I was really looking forward to watching, particularly because Brawl In Cell Block 99 completely blew me away.

Not only was Brawl… a fantastic plot-driven piece with some juicy 18-certificate violence where required, but it also changed the way I thought about Vince Vaughn. I only knew him for his endless, crappy ‘comedies’, but this film showed us that drama is where his strengths lie. This often tends to be the case with comedians.

Intellivision Amico – New trailer released!

Intellivision Amico Intellivision Amico has had a trailer released today, which teases some gameplay and images of the forthcoming games, and I’m very interested in checking one out when it’s released, but I would’ve liked more from this trailer.

As you watch it, it’s mostly Intellivision’s Tommy Tallarico talking for 1 minute and 51 seconds before the actual gameplay begins. However, when it did come, I’m hoping the gameplay is 100% genuine, since it did have a feel of the flashy Activision box art I remember seeing in the ’80s, only to find the games didn’t quite live up to the promise.

Overall, this trailer is a step in the right direction, but just a small step. The system is due for release on October 10th 2020, so that’s over a year away, but given the hype, I still expected to see a lot more information for it. We know that the PS5 and the next Xbox will be released around Xmas 2020, but the Intellivision Amico is aimed more as a family-orientated platform, and for a lower price, while the big hitters are expected to be around $600 apiece.

Whatever info comes out, I’m still very interested to see what comes next about the Intellivision Amico, given that I was around when the original console came out, even though I had its competitor at the time, the Atari 2600 (hey, don’t blame me, my parents bought it! But I did love it at the time 😉 )

Check out the trailer below:

Lust For A Vampire on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Lust For A Vampire
Lust For A Vampire is a title for a ’70s movie that made me think that from the off, we’d get bloodletting aplent, thanks to fangs. Well, don’t celebrate too much, yet.

The year is 1830, so everyone wears big stuffy clothes, although because this is a finishing school in the ’70s, the women get topless from time to time in the exact same way that they don’t these days, ever since political correctness came in.
