Captain Marvel – Trailer 2 – Brie Larson

Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel has a second trailer, and as well as all the overblown and tedious ‘action’ which we’ve seen countless times before, it opens with a moment for which I think the BBFC will have a problem: Brie Larson, in the title role, punches an old woman in the face, and then slams her into a tram’s metal pole.

Yes, the inference is that she’s not just a dear, sweet old lady, but an alien who needs dealing with…. but I doubt that’ll cut the mustard with the BBFC as they won’t want feral teenagers copying it in real life, and I wouldn’t be surprised that, if include in the final film, it could be a 15-certificate.

Care – The DVDfever Review – Sheridan Smith, Alison Steadman

Care
Care is a new Jimmy McGovern drama which, for me, has come at a depressingly poignant time.

We know that strokes can hit someone – mostly in their later years, but sometimes also in a person’s younger years. It does not discriminate. For Mary (Alison Steadman), it’s today, and it’s just about to happen, while she’s driving home from the chippy.

The Messenger on PC / Steam – The DVDfever Review

The Messenger
The Messenger is a new platformer where – and I won’t go into too much detail because I just like to get stuck into these sorts of games – a ninja village is given hell by a Demon King, and that all will be solved as you, the ‘Western Hero’ is given a scroll to deliver to the top of a mountain, thus making you the titular Messenger.

That’s the jumping-off point, literally, for the 18 levels and worlds which follows, where you travel through both the past and future, which are shown, respectively, in an old-school 8-bit and 16-bit style; and when the time comes, the two timezones will collide.

Is Kevin Costner’s Yellowstone the Big Western Comeback?

Yellowstone
Yee-haw! The western burst onto screens with a glimpse at life in the new frontier in the early 1900s and has continued long into the 21st century. Whether it’s the classic John Wayne take, the Clint Eastwood versions, or Quentin Tarantino’s modern westerns, the genre continues to succeed by showcasing a period of time that many people can’t even fathom.

The latest to hit the list of westerns we love is Yellowstone, a TV series starring Kevin Costner and produced by the Paramount Network. The series focuses on the conflicts that developed in the 1850s around the Yellowstone National Park, a nearby Indian reservation, and a cattle ranch.

It Takes You Away – Doctor Who Series 11 Episode 9 – The DVDfever Review

It Takes You Away
It Takes You Away is the ninth – and penultimate – episode of Doctor Who Series 11, and it took the Doctor and the Scooby Doo gang away to spooky house in a forest in Norway (not Norway), in which something has taken Hanne’s father away…

While the owner of the house was out and about, Hanne was remarkably trusting, even though her Dad had just been captured, and she’s blind, so you’d think she’d be rather wary.

Play Expo 2019 Manchester – May 4th / 5th 2019

Play Expo 2019
Play Expo 2019 is coming to Manchester on May 4th and 5th 2019 at Manchester Central Convention Complex, in the centre of the city, so first and foremost – this marks a change in venue to their usual place of Event City near the Trafford Centre, so make sure you’re in the right place!

Of the announcements made so far, for me, Matthew Smith (above) is a major draw as he wrote two of the games which defined my videogaming fun in the ’80s – Manic Miner (1983) and Jet Set Willy (1984), thus celebrating the latter’s 35th birthday in 2019. They were two of the all-time great platformers, and while I later completed Manic Miner on the Xbox 360, I never could complete Jet Set Willy, although I’m not sure if anyone could because at least some versions contained a notorious bug which stopped you from doing so.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Spyro Reignited Trilogy
Spyro Reignited Trilogy is out now, and the first title, Spyro The Dragon, was originally released in 1999. I wondered, when I saw the re-release, why I felt zero nostalgia. Then I realised that it was a similar time to the release of Final Fantasy VII, and all was understood.

The Spyro Trilogy is another game highlighting the slightly sad state of affairs, leading me to sell all my previous consoles: Most good games are being remastered, or coming out on the Mini/Classic consoles (‘good’ and ‘Playstation Classic‘ mini doesn’t quite fit together, though). Saying all this, what we have with Spyro is a prime example of how remasters can go pretty well.

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle – The DVDfever Cinema / Netflix Review – Christian Bale

Mowgli
Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, aka just Mowgli in some territories, retells The Jungle Book for Netflix, brought to us in the director’s chair by Andy Serkis, who’s best known for being in a motion-capture suit for big-screen movies such as War For The Planet Of The Apes and Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.

But do we need another movie like this after Jon Favreau last brought us his version of The Jungle Book in 2016
