Posted May 28, 2013

Posted May 27, 2013

Posted May 27, 2013
4/5 92% Nebraska (2013) " Payne directs the film in a relatively uncluttered manner, ensuring the film plays out as a slowly unravelling elegant narrative." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 27, 2013
1/5 —— Max Rose " A disastrous return to the screen for Lewis." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 24, 2013
5/5 87% Like Father, Like Son (2014) " Koreeda continues to excel with Like Father, Like Son in developing a thought-provoking and emotionally engaging film out of delicate observational drama." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 23, 2013
2/5 40% Only God Forgives (2013) " Only God Forgives is actually a pretty drudging affair and even at just ninety minutes it really drags." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 23, 2013
2/5 —— Monsoon Shootout " Monsoon Shootout shows so much promise early on but very quickly disintegrates." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 22, 2013
3/5 82% Something in the Air (2013) " Something in the Air is somewhat too ambitious within its aims, fitting too much in to its two hour running time." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 22, 2013
5/5 94% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) " Inside Llewyn Davis is a quiet triumph of a film." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 21, 2013
3.5/5 44% Wara no tate (Shield of Straw) " Miike rarely dips too far below the surface but this all gives interesting flavour to what is already a very enjoyable thriller." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 21, 2013
5/5 95% Behind the Candelabra (2013) " The film feels like an epic biopic, with so much detail, humour and emotion crammed in." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 21, 2013
4/5 93% The Dance of Reality (2014) " Jodorowsky has crafted a beautiful bricolage which is both easy to digest and engage with and also unlike anything you have seen before. An absolute marvel." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 19, 2013
3/5 74% Young & Beautiful (Jeune Et Jolie) (2014) " Jeune & Jolie is an engaging character piece, with the excellent central performance of Vacth and some handsome and often understated cinematography from Pascal Marti being the main highlights." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 19, 2013
4/5 58% Heli (2014) " A dark tale, Heli is certainly not easy viewing but Escalante's bleak journey is one worth taking, for its raw and intense power is often rather extraordinary." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 17, 2013
2/5 60% The Bling Ring (2013) " The young cast impress greatly at times and their delivery of some of the more amusing lines with a pout and a "like totally" help make The Bling Ring something of an enjoyable experience, despite it's flimsiness." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 16, 2013
3/5 73% Simon Killer (2013) " Simon Killer is as juvenile as the behaviour of its central character, but thankfully its weaker moments are reasonably scarce and for the most part the film is an interesting, if a little surface level, character study that is difficult to shake off." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 14, 2013
1/5 12% Safe Haven (2013) " The film is for the most part an exhausting slog through clich├ęd characters and formulaic writing that is near impossible to take at all seriously." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 14, 2013
98% The Loved Ones (2012) " The Loved Ones has a lot to offer in wit, style and entertainment and I can highly recommend it." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jan 8, 2013
3/5 79% Reality (2013) " As shallow as the televisual waste matter that provides its subject Reality is a well made but often empty effort from Garrone." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 19, 2012
3.5/5 94% The Sessions (2012) " A warm and compelling tale told in a simple manner, The Sessions is a rewarding if somewhat slight film with wide appeal." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 17, 2012
3.5/5 —— Loves Of Pharoah (1922) " Loves of Pharaoh is a little simplistic and lightweight but there are enough really great scenes to elevate the film beyond mere spectacle." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 16, 2012
2/5 70% Celeste and Jesse Forever (2012) " Celeste and Jesse Forever is not an affront to cinema or anything of the sort but it is mediocre from beginning to end." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 16, 2012
4/5 89% In the House (2013) " A script with razor sharp wit, effective and unobtrusive direction and fine performances from the key leads all help ensure this is one of, if not the finest of Ozon's films to date." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 13, 2012
5/5 95% West of Memphis (2012) " An absorbing and emotional journey, West of Memphis is one of the best documentaries of 2012 so far." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 13, 2012
4/5 96% Chasing Ice (2012) " Balog has created time-lapse images of the receding glaciers, providing a beautiful but terrifying example of the effects of climate change." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 13, 2012
5/5 68% The We and the I (2013) " Amusing, oddly gripping and ultimately emotional, The We and the I is another triumph from Michel Gondry, something of an experiment that has paid off no end." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 13, 2012
1/5 11% Argento's Dracula 3D (2013) " Argento's intention is actually a little unclear but in Dracula he has made a film that will undoubtedly find an audience, but the audience will almost certainly be one that enjoys to laugh at it rather than take it at all seriously." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 12, 2012
1.5/5 —— Sadako 3D (2013) " Die-hard fans of the Ring franchise will most likely find something to enjoy... but there is little horror, fun or intelligence to be found in Sadako 3D." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 12, 2012
2/5 43% The Paperboy (2012) " ...a calamity." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 12, 2012
3.5/5 —— Ai to makoto (The Legend of Love & Sincerity) " A very entertaining action musical romance film and if you are willing to accept the baggy story and a certain level of distance from the characters there is still a great deal left to enjoy." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 11, 2012
5/5 93% Amour (2012) " A masterpiece." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 10, 2012
3/5 100% The Man From Nowhere (2010) " The Man From Nowhere is relatively solid throughout and despite its general lack of originality it is an entertaining and gripping film with assured direction and excellent central performances." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 6, 2012
4/5 82% De rouille et d'os (Rust and Bone) (2012) " Rust and Bone is an incredibly well crafted and intensely emotionally absorbing film worthy of serious attention." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 3, 2012
4/5 67% Lawless (2012) " The various performances are all of an incredibly high standard, with some perhaps more inspired pieces of casting but others representing actors rising up to a reach a high bar. " — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 2, 2012
2/5 43% On the Road (2012) " There are times when the film is incredibly pleasing to the eye but there is sadly little to be found beyond the aesthetic delights." — HeyUGuys
