Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " Comic genius that doesn't let up until well into the credits. All hail Lord Miller as they single-handedly attempt to usher in a smarter, funnier wave of Hollywood comedy." — Film4
Posted Jun 6, 2014
48% Maleficent (2014) " Just about the least interesting take on Sleeping Beauty imaginable. A live action pantomime, robbed of the ultimate pantomime villain." — Film4
Posted May 30, 2014
27% The Love Punch (2014) " Despite four game stars, this is ill-conceived and poorly executed." — Film4
Posted Apr 18, 2014
79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " A disappointing sequel that can't replicate the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational qualities of the film that brought Jim Henson's creations back into the limelight." — Film4
Posted Mar 28, 2014
78% Veronica Mars (2014) " In giving the fans what they want, Thomas has found an excuse to bring Veronica back, but perhaps not the right reason." — Film4
Posted Mar 14, 2014
22% Need For Speed (2014) " As both a racing movie and a video game adaptation, this is a missed opportunity." — Film4
Posted Mar 14, 2014
60% Non-Stop (2014) " Ludicrously entertaining. Wait, no, ludicrous and entertaining; a slice of sublime nonsense." — Film4
Posted Feb 28, 2014
3/5 22% That Awkward Moment (2014) " Just the right balance between the raunchier comedic moments." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jan 27, 2014
63% Filth (2014) " James McAvoy steals the show with his complex portrayal of a sociopath in this deftly directed, no-holds-barred black comedy." — Film4
Posted Oct 4, 2013
1/5 —— It's A Lot " Shambolic. Not in a good way." — Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 23, 2013
3/5 65% The Heat (2013) " The film then lives and dies by how funny each individual scene manages to be. Some hit the mark, others do not." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 31, 2013
2/5 38% Admission (2013) " Given two options, Admission routinely takes the less interesting of the two, and wastes a great deal of on-screen talent in the process." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 17, 2013
5/5 98% Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes (Aguirre, the Wrath of God) (1972) " Herzog's vision of man disregarding nature and bringing about his inevitable demise is an intoxicating one, and one that demands to be revisited through this wonderfully restored print." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 7, 2013
5/5 83% This Is the End (2013) " Unsurprisingly it's really messy, and not every joke lands, but the script's peppered with so many that it's hard to find a scene where you're not consistently laughing." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 7, 2013
1/5 10% A Haunted House (2013) " Dreadful." — Empire Magazine
Posted May 27, 2013
3.5/5 75% The Kings of Summer (2013) " A sweet (but still funny) coming-of-age tale with its heart firmly in the right place." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 10, 2013
4/5 51% Welcome to the Punch (2013) " Between Welcome to the Punch and Shifty there are all the ingredients for a masterpiece...and you wouldn't bet against Creevy putting them all together next time around." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 15, 2013
1/5 15% Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013) " Maybe it wouldn't seem so bad if the plot made a lick of sense...but it doesn't!" — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 28, 2013
3.5/5 55% I Give It a Year (2013) " Some incredibly funny moments but some sail way wide of the mark and make the final piece seem incredibly uneven." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 8, 2013
3/5 79% Quartet (2013) " It's hard to rally against a film as fun and as easy a watch as this, and it can hardly be a bad thing that a previously under-served audience is now forming the crowd that a new wave of films are eager to please." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jan 2, 2013
3.5/5 81% Pitch Perfect (2012) " Even if Pitch Perfect doesn't stand up to much scrutiny, it's still an enjoyable romp on the surface." — HeyUGuys
Posted Dec 21, 2012
3/5 64% Love Crime (2011) " While the second half is no stronger or weaker than the first, what it does confirm are any earlier suspicions that this is no more than a piece of competently executed French popcorn cinema along the lines of 2008's Anything For Her." — HeyUGuys
Posted Dec 20, 2012
3.5/5 84% Smashed (2012) " For what it sets out to achieve and the amount it chooses to portray, Smashed does a solid job - made all the more notable thanks to Winstead." — HeyUGuys
Posted Dec 20, 2012
2/5 50% Trouble with the Curve (2012) " The efforts to become a crowd-pleaser eventually just result in the film feeling a little condescending, and so lightweight that it's barely worth picking up at all" — HeyUGuys
Posted Nov 30, 2012
4/5 74% Rise of the Guardians (2012) " Pixar clearly still have the edge when it comes to organic storytelling, but if Dreamworks' latest effort is anything to go by then visually at least the playing field has been levelled." — HeyUGuys
Posted Nov 30, 2012
4/5 100% Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 (2012) " For anyone with even a passing interest in James Bond, it's an essential watch." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 5, 2012
4.5/5 85% The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) " The real strength of the film though lies in its authenticity. There are many scenes, characters, details and interactions that you'll swear have been lifted from your very own adolescent years." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 3, 2012
2/5 0% The Knot (2014) " A reminder of exactly how good Bridesmaids was, this British facsimile fails to replicate its charms or laugh count." — Empire Magazine
