The Good Liar – Trailer 1 – Helen Mirren

The Good Liar centres around career con artist Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellen), who can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren) online. As Betty opens her home and life to him, Roy is surprised to find himself caring about her, turning what should be a cut-and-dry swindle into the […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Dresser (2015) – The DVDfever Review

The Dresser tells the story of something of which I have zero experience – working backstage at a touring Shakespearean theatre company. In a production of King Lear, the lead actor is bordering on insanity as age and work take their toll. Simply referred to as Sir (and played by Anthony Hopkins), his long-term dresser, […]

X-Men: Days of Future Past – The Rogue Cut on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

X-Men: Days of Future Past – The Rogue Cut – IMPORTANT! This review discusses The Rogue Cut in a fair amount of detail so there will be spoilers! You have been warned. And you cannot travel back in time to the 1970s to forget what you’ve read…

Rogue Cut – X-Men: Days of Future Past – released July 13th

Rogue Cut is the version of X-Men: Days of Future Past which the fans have been waiting for, where you get to put on your favourite make-up and a bit of lipstick and… (pardon? …Oh, I see) …Hmm… apparently that’s the ROUGE cut. And there are no plas for a release of that one. However, […]

Mr Holmes is set in 1947, and follows Ian McKellen as a long-retired Holmes living in a Sussex village with his housekeeper and rising detective son. But then he finds himself haunted by an unsolved 50-year old case. Holmes’ memory isn’t what it used to be, so he only remembers fragments of the case: a […]

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies in 3D IMAX – The DVDfever cinema review

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies takes us back into J.R.R. Tolkein‘s Middle Earth for the final time. The poster hypes this entry as being “The Definining Chapter” – it’s not, it’s just the last one. The film begins with Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) travelling towards Laketown to blow it apart with fire – […]
