Years And Years Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Russell T Davies

Years And Years is a new drama from Russell T Davies, whose work has had a chequered past with me, in that I really enjoyed some, but didn’t like others. This starts off as a seemingly normal family drama, to the point where I wondered if anything was going to happen at all. I knew […]

Late Night – Trailer 1 – Emma Thompson

Late Night centres around Emma Thompson as Katherine Newbury, a late-night talk show host who suspects that she may soon be losing her long-running show and has to work out why, and it looks like it’ll be going to newbie Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling, who also wrote the film). However, while everyone in this seems […]

Men in Black International (2019) – Flogging a dead horse for a 4th time

Men in Black International shows that if 3000 Marvel and DC movies aren’t enough, then why bother creating original ideas when you can just recycle old ones and flog a dead horse until its carcass is flayed and has bled out. The first film was really good, but then the second was awful and, as […]

Missing Link – Trailer 1 – Hugh Jackman

Missing Link stars Hugh Jackman as the charismatic Sir Lionel Frost, who considers himself to be the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters. The trouble is none of his small-minded high-society peers seems to recognize this. Sir Lionel’s last chance for acceptance by the adventuring elite rests on traveling to America’s Pacific Northwest to […]

The Children Act – Trailer 1 – Emma Thompson

The Children Act is a film that looks very well-intentioned, and with some great names in the cast, but it looks extremely dull. As her marriage to Jack (Stanley Tucci) flounders, eminent High Court judge Fiona Maye (Emma Thompson) has a life-changing decision to make at work – should she force a teenage boy, Adam […]

The Meyerowitz Stories – Trailer 1 – Ben Stiller

The Meyerowitz Stories sounds like the least interesting movie of the year as Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller are two brothers from an estranged family gathers together in New York for an event celebrating the artistic work of their father, played by Dustin Hoffman. There’s a large cast in The Meyerowitz Stories, but this does […]

Beauty and the Beast (2017) – The DVDfever Review

Beauty and the Beast – Meh. More or less a beat-by-beat retread of the animation. On the couple of occasions it adds something new, it’s quite good, but adds little to the original. Emma Watson is dull as ditchwater as Belle. The best thing you can say about her performance is – at least it […]

Alone in Berlin Official Trailer 1 – Brendan Gleeson

Alone in Berlin features some dodgy German accents as Brendan Gleeson plays conscientious objector Otto Quangel in 1940 Berlin, when, after he and wife Anna (Emma Thompson) learn that their only son has lost his life in the battlefield, they decide to resist the Nazi regime in their very own way by leaving notes here […]

Beauty and the Beast Official Trailer 1 – Emma Watson

Beauty and the Beast finds Emma Watson taking time off from fannying around at the United Nations to become Belle in a new live-action Disney retelling of a tale I never saw in any other form previously, and I am unlikely to indulge in this latest version of girlie nonsense, also. If you’ve been under […]

Bridget Jones’ Baby – Even men will like it! – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Bridget Jones’ Baby – let’s get this right from the start. For me, that’s the title, NOT “Bridget Jones’s Baby”. Who puts the extra, redundant ‘s’ in these things? Probably the same people who say ‘forward slash’ in a web address, when it’s just ‘slash’. You’d only have a ‘back slash’ if you had an […]
