His Dark Materials – The DVDfever Review – James McAvoy

His Dark Materials is the Philip Pullman trilogy of novels which I have never read, nor did I see The Golden Compass, the 2007 movie made with the intention to kickstart a whole trilogy, but like Daniel Craig’s other trilogy attempt to redo The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, neither got beyond the first outing. […]

The Accident – The DVDfever Review – Sarah Lancashire

The Accident begins with an unexpected – but amusing – scene as Polly Bevan (Sarah Lancashire – Kiri) finds 15-year-old daughter Leona (Jade Croot) in bed with a lad who’s far too old for her, but rather than get the cops involved, she shoots him out in her own inimiatable style. Beyond that, while the […]

Radioactive – Teaser 1 – Rosamund Pike

Radioactive tells the story of the scientific and romantic passions of Polish scientist Marie Sklodowska-Curie (Rosamund Pike) and Pierre Curie (Sam Riley), and the reverberation of their discoveries throughout the 20th Century. Personally, I don’t think Ms Pike can act her way out of a paper bag, and this trailer shows no exception. Radioactive hasn’t […]

The Aeronauts – Trailer 1 – Eddie Redmayne – Felicity Jones

The Aeronauts follows wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) and headstrong scientist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne), as they mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. This is a journey to the very edge of existence, where the air is thin and the chances of survival are slim. As their perilous […]

The Virtues is a new four-part series which reunites This Is England‘s Shane Meadows with actor Stephen Graham, here, as Joseph, a painter and decorator who has reached the end of his tether. Drink and drugs help numb the pain of life, but when his ex-partner Debbie, and 9-year-old son, Shea, are moving abroad to […]

Kiri Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Sarah Lancashire

Kiri is a new four-part drama starring Sarah Lancashire as Miriam, a social worker who owns a dog with low-level depression, whom she dotes upon, and her visits to her mother, Celia (Sue Johnston), in a nursing home. I’m not a particular fan of Ms Lancashire and I couldn’t take to her in Happy Valley, […]

The Commuter – Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams Episode 3 – The DVDfever Review

The Commuter is the third episode in Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams and is set in an era that feels like a mixture of ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, with decor jumping between all three. Having worked in a dank railway ticket office or 20 years, Ed Jacobson (Timothy Spall) knows every stop on each train […]

National Treasure Episode 1 – Robbie Coltrane drama – The DVDfever Review

National Treasure stars Robbie Coltrane as long-standing showbiz personality Paul Finchley, and he’s a perfect choice for this role, as he is, indeed, a national treasure. However, after many years in the public eye, it’s not long into the drama before the police come knocking as he’s accused of rape. Naturally, he denies all charges […]

This Is England 90 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

This Is England 90 is the final series to feature the characters first seen in the movie This Is England from writer/director Shane Meadows, and I have to admit I haven’t seen a jot of it before this programme. Well, apart from the 5-minute summary put together in advance of this series. Beginning with a […]
