Okja – The DVDfever Review – Netflix

Okja

Okja is a film that had an initial trailer which made me unsure as to whether it would be good or bad. When I saw the film, it could well be my favourite of the year.

What you might not know is that in New York, 2007, Nancy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) gave a press conference in New York about how around 805m humans are going hungry each day, 30m of them being in the US. A solution was required and this came about in breeding a super piglet – not just one, but 26, which were reproduced through natural non-forced mating and given to farmers in 26 countries where each of the branch offices are located.

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni on PC – The DVDfever Review

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni is a fighter game with a difference – the protagonists are big-boobed females with skimpy skirts and a passion for feeling fruity.

Okay, so this may be an experience others have had before – and it’s a while since I’ve got stuck into a fighting game, but I’m normally bashing robot’s heads together, with the only females kicking and punching being those who are properly dressed for it.

World Enough And Time – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 11 – The DVDfever Review

World Enough And Time

World Enough And Time began with The Doctor doing that fake regeneration crap again, making my heart sink from the off, not least because the two-part finale is brought to you by the combination of Steven Moffat and Rachel Talalay, the latter who was responsible for… er… Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare – the worst Freddy Krueger film ever.

Also, together, they brought you the Series 9 finale of Heaven Sent and Hell Bent, where Capaldi had to spend 2 million years smashing through a bloody wall – it felt that long, too!

Host The Week Episode 1 – Scarlett Moffat – The DVDfever Review

Host The Week Host The Week proves the depths at which TV has sunk to these days by Channel 4 getting the most inept idiot they can find and hoping they can muddle through a programme about the past week’s events without a script, without a rehearsal and without having met any of the guests.

First up, educationally and mentally-subnormal Scarlett Moron-Chav, I mean, Scarlett Moffat, who came to the fore in Channel 4’s Gogglebox. If you thought Host The Week was scraping the barrel dry, then

Transformers: The Last Knight leads the new cinema releases and trailers June 23rd 2017

Transformers: The Last KnightThis week, there are FOUR new films out for you to choose from: Crash/bang/wallop aplenty with Transformers: The Last Knight, Naomi Watts has trouble raising a child genius in The Book of Henry, Isabelle Huppert is a former Eurovision pop star in Souvenir, and Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson are a mismatched couple in Hampstead.

Transformers: The Last Knight is the fifth in the never-ending franchise about toy robots bashing each other to pieces, and Mark Wahlberg returns as the stupidly-name Cade Yeager, although seemingly, Nicola Peltz will not be returning as his daughter, Tessa, and there’s no sign either of the wonderful James Bachman as Gill Wembley, assistant to Stanley Tucci‘s Joshua Joyce who IS returning. Confused? Probably not.

In this new movie, Optimus Prime finds that his home planet, Cybertron, is now completely dead… and it was all his fault. So, he needs to bringing it back to life, and in order to do that… he needs an artifact that just happens to be on Earth! So, he’s on his way back!

To The Bone – Official Trailer – Netflix – Lily Collins

To The Bone To The Bone is a forthcoming Netflix drama starring Lily Collins (right) (Rules Don’t Apply) as Ellen, an unruly, 20-year-old anorexic girl who spent the better part of her teenage years being shepherded through various recovery programs, only to find herself several pounds lighter every time. Determined to find a solution, her dysfunctional family agrees to send her to a group home for youths, which is led by a non-traditional doctor. Surprised by the unusual rules—and charmed by her fellow patients—Ellen has to discover for herself how to confront her addiction and attempt self-acceptance, in order to stand a chance against her demons.

She meets an unconventional doctor, Dr. William Beckham (Keanu Reeves), who challenges her to face her condition and embrace life.

Written and directed by Marti Noxon, the film also stars Carrie Preston, Alanna Ubach, Liana Liberato, Kathryn Prescott, Lili Taylor, and Brooke Smith, and I found this a very charming tale based on the trailer.

To The Bone is released by Netflix on July 14th in the UK and US and I’m really looking forward to this.
