4/5 71% Time Out Of Mind " Richard Gere delivers a career-best performance as a homeless man in a film that doesn't pander to stereotypes about society's lowest echelon." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 18, 2014
2/5 50% The Judge (2014) " Judge Dreadful!" — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 15, 2014
3/5 70% Love & Mercy " Half of a great biopic about melodic pop genius Brian Wilson, played by two actors with very different results." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 12, 2014
4/5 88% The Drop (2014) " The Drop breathes fresh life into the often predictable milieu of New York crime and criminals." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 10, 2014
1/5 20% The Sound And The Fury " The Sound And The Fury is a tragedy." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 9, 2014
2/5 —— The Dead Lands " Lovely to look at but it feels long at just under 2 hours, and ends with a gory whimper rather than the anticipated spectacularly bloody bang." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 8, 2014
3.5/5 59% Dom Hemingway (2014) " Jude Law's manically endearing performance is a pleasant surprise from an actor whose breadth of talent is often overlooked." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 30, 2013
2.5/5 62% The Sacrament (2014) " The Sacrament's intriguing setup is squandered by predictability and the filmmaker's irritating refusal to stick to reality/found footage 'rules'. " — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 17, 2013
4/5 98% Jodorowsky's Dune (2014) " In an interesting coda, many examples are cited that may or may not be instances of the creative team recycling designs and ideas in other films." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 11, 2013
3/5 33% Labor Day (2014) " Eliciting strong performances is probably Reitman's greatest directorial strength, and it's the performances that make this contrived melodrama worth watching." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 11, 2013
2.5/5 37% The Fifth Estate (2013) " This efficient but uninspired work doesn't provide any more insight into the issue than a television docudrama would." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 11, 2013
3.5/5 82% The Double (2014) " This is paranoia played for laughs, with a very different tone from the much more sinister source material. " — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 11, 2013
3/5 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " Fading Gigolo is a charming little film that is entirely inoffensive despite its subject matter." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 11, 2013
4/5 97% 12 Years a Slave (2013) " This magnificent, shocking work is likely to become a sort of reference text about the horrors of one of the darkest chapters in America's history." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 11, 2013
1.5/5 45% Horns (2014) " Radcliffe has got the chops and determination to ensure a solid career post child stardom, but his performance here and feels like the probing of an actor eager to cast off the iconic role that defined him." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 9, 2013
3/5 85% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) " While some may find the lack of explanation frustrating, for others it will enhance the intriguing nature of the characters and their relationship." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 6, 2013
4/5 93% The Hunt (2013) " The last moments of the film elicited gasps from several people in the audience." — HeyUGuys
Posted Nov 30, 2012
3/5 93% Room 237 (2013) " The idea of collating these people's ideas in a feature film and dragging them off the internet and into the light of a projector beam is an intriguing one, but at over 100 minutes it's fair to say that most peoples' interest will wane before the end." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 5, 2012
3/5 66% The Iceman (2013) " As satisfying as it is on a number of levels, The Iceman's failure to shine enough light on Kuklinski's psyche prevents it from possibly achieving the greatness it aspires to." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 3, 2012
3.5/5 85% Sightseers (2013) " Sightseers achieves the relatively rare feat of striking the right balance between sharply observed characterisation and jet black humour that takes it beyond the absurd." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 27, 2012
3.5/5 83% Seven Psychopaths (2012) " Like 'In Bruges', much of the pleasure derived from the film comes from the interaction of the characters, but Christopher Walken's Hans unassumingly steals the film." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 23, 2012
1/5 45% To The Wonder (2013) " The interaction between the leads is about as enticing as watching paint dry!" — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 23, 2012
2.5/5 65% Spring Breakers (2013) " As the film progresses the hedonism and then the violence, escalate to absurd levels, removing the action from the realm of reality." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 13, 2012
4/5 85% The Master (2012) " This is film-making to be admired and enthralled by, rather than being engaged on an emotional level." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 11, 2012
4/5 80% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) " A superb drama that is focuses unflinchingly on the often anguished relationship between men and their boys, between men and other men, and between men and themselves." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 10, 2012
3/5 65% Antiviral (2013) " To his credit, while Cronenberg loads the film with a lot of ideas about physical, psychological and cultural illness, it all holds together well and doesn't feel over as stuffed as many debut features do." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 8, 2012
3.5/5 96% Argo (2012) " Argo showcases the continuing evolution of a filmmaker who is quickly establishing himself as one of the preeminent directors of his generation." — HeyUGuys
