The Nun (2018) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Nun is set both before the Conjuring movies (which I have seen) and the Annabelle movies (which I haven’t), but as every continuation of strangely successful movies comes along, they’re always prequels so that’ll make them more accessible to everyone who hasn’t been around since the first, even though I can see some elements […]

Luther Series 5: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Idris Elba

Luther Season 5‘s arrival means the man with the grey trench coat is back. Women will love this, since it’s only a handful of minutes before Idris Elba is taking his shirt off in the bathroom. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from the same year. Running DVDfever.co.uk […]

Death and Nightingales: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Jamie Dornan

Death and Nightingales is a new three-part drama, based on a novel, but adapted by the same team who brought us The Fall… which I’ve never seen, but they’ve also given us Jamie Dornan who was in that, as well as the laughably-terrible Fifty Shades Of Grey movies. I’ve never seen The Fall, as I […]

Madame on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Madame may boast Toni Collette (Wanderlust) and Harvey Keitel (Reservoir Dogs) as its leads, Anne and Bob, a well-off American couple who are about to host a big dinner for lots of people, but the two that drew me into this are Rossy de Palma as Maria, and the always engaging Michael Smiley (Free Fire) […]

Free Fire on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Free Fire has a simple premise – an arms deal goes wrong. Tetchy people with itchy trigger fingers lead to guns being shot when it really wasn’t necessary, as everything was almost about to go smoothly, despite gun dealer Vernon (District 9‘s Sharlto Copley) supplying the wrong type of weapon. Set in 1970s Boston (but […]

Jawbone – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Jawbone tells the underdog tale of former child-star boxing champion Jimmy McCabe (Johnny Harris). His best years are long behind him, thanks heavy drinking and the fact that the council want to evict him from his flat, since the appartment block is being knocked down. He’s refusing because it once belonged to his mother; yes, […]

Free Fire – Official Red Band Trailer 1 – Brie Larson

Free Fire is the latest Ben Wheatley movie, following the critically-acclaimed High-Rise and great movies such as Kill List and Sightseers. This one is set in Boston in 1978, where there’s no honour amongst thieves or gangster-types as one group go to buy guns from the other group, and clearly things go wrong as, in […]

Orthodox on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Orthodox centres around Stephen Graham as Benjamin, a boxer-turned-butcher who’s still forced to fight because money is tight. The recession has hit his family business hard, so in order to make ends meet, long-time friend Shannon (Michael Smiley) arranges underground Ronnie Pickering-style bare-knuckle face-bashing events for him to take part in, and, when push comes […]

Brian Pern: The Complete Series 1-3 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Brian Pern is the prog-rock brainchild of Rhys Thomas OBE and The Fast Show‘s Simon Day, and this boxset takes in all three series – The Life of Rock, A Life in Rock and 45 Years of Prog and Roll – each of which comprised of just three episodes… not enough, but then I’d rather […]
