3/5 50% The Quiet Ones (2014) " The Quiet Ones is a confused concept with great, star-quality performances that are its saving grace." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 10, 2014
3/5 —— Ironclad: Battle for Blood " The director manages to deliver a commendable production on what appears to be little budget." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 13, 2014
4/5 71% Plot for Peace " Momentous! " — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/5 78% The Bachelor Weekend (The Stag) (2014) " The bromance is not lost in The Stag, however odd the grouping is." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 10, 2014
3/5 69% Powder Room " Powder Room harnesses some refreshing female comedic talent, all witnessed by the wise toilet attendant (newcomer Johnnie Fiori) who ends the night on a high, soulful note - much like any Saturday night sing-song in the loo when inhibitions crumble." — HeyUGuys
Posted Dec 4, 2013
1/5 —— Sixteen " Overall, Brown has squandered a good idea. It's a great shame, as it all feels half-heartedly executed when the story had so much potential" — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 21, 2013
5/5 67% Afternoon Delight (2013) " Afternoon Delight is the pitch-perfect morning, afternoon or evening viewing for any stay-at-home-mum who gets the 'grass is always greener' speech from her working sisters." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 21, 2013
5/5 85% Mystery Road " Mystery Road offers nothing new in terms of crime plot, but its awesome setting and tenacious hero make it an absolute must-see, especially for western fans." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 21, 2013
3/5 60% Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013) " A blast of light entertainment, however crude things get for some ... it's the most charming of the Jackass bag of tricks ..." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 21, 2013
5/5 94% The Past (2013) " Farhadi's all-consuming and cerebral emotional drama puzzle The Past could be another awards contender, with a scriptwriting prowess matched by an exceptional cast under talented direction." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 20, 2013
4/5 83% The Armstrong Lie (2013) " Gibney may not be as biting as in his previous work ... The man [Armstrong] still feels like an enigma." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 20, 2013
3/5 85% The Congress (2014) " The Congress plays to our fears, perhaps ironically, with hindsight affecting our view of it as a piece of social commentary too?" — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 18, 2013
3/5 81% Becoming Traviata (2013) " Becoming Traviata gives a compelling and rare insight into the daily life of the opera industry from the perspective of a filmmaker." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 18, 2013
5/5 97% The Selfish Giant (2013) " Barnard's subject matter rewards in many respects and her storytelling flair stays with you long after the end credits. British cinema has conversely never felt so invigorating." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 17, 2013
2/5 41% As I Lay Dying (2013) " Comes across - whether it's Franco's intention or not - as a grossly self-indulgent project that will alienate some of his fan base." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 17, 2013
5/5 —— We Are the Best! " Moodysson's charming and winning journey into adulthood, accompanied by a music style that encourages a venting of mixed emotions ... " — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 16, 2013

Posted Oct 16, 2013
4/5 98% Starred Up (2014) " Some outstanding performances from O'Connell and Mendelson, both hugely exciting actors ..." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 16, 2013
4/5 —— Les garçons et Guillaume, à table " Gallienne is the androgynous clown minus the costume that wants us to laugh and cry with him." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 16, 2013
4/5 99% Gloria (2014) " Gloria is a thought-provoking and immensely satisfying piece of filmmaking." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 16, 2013
4/5 95% Child's Pose (2014) " Child's Pose is simply unforgettable cinema." — HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 16, 2013
3/5 30% Austenland (2013) " This pantomime farce is in good, hearty spirits ... it knowingly pokes fun at itself ... simply enjoy the outrageous buffoonery." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 29, 2013
4/5 82% Prisoners (2013) " Villeneuve's taut directing, coupled with a strong story, gritty cinematography and captivating performances make Prisoners a tantalising watch that will solicit and repulse in equal measure ..." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 26, 2013
3.5/5 51% White House Down (2013) " Emmerich's White House Down thunders from one far-fetched scenario to another, but all set within a good pace that doesn't allow attention to wander, or for us to not care about the characters either." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 11, 2013
4/5 74% You're Next (2013) " You're Next shakes up the genre after a raft of recent contenders, such as the slicker-looking (but less effective) The Purge." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 27, 2013
2.5/5 56% Bachelorette (2012) " It's hard to feel anything but vacuity after watching, regardless of Dunst's commendable and animated turn at crushing the nuptials dream." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 15, 2013
2/5 15% Top Cat:The Movie (UK) " Top Cat returns with a purr rather than a MEOW, sorely let down by its odd technicalities and lack of engaging script." — Real.com
Posted Aug 2, 2013
3.5/5 59% The Frozen Ground (2013) " As a debut thriller of high-profile interest (in the story of Hansen), Walker has held his own and produced something very watchable and well executed." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 2, 2013
3.5/5 56% Snitch (2013) " Overall Snitch aims to entertain and yank a parental heartstring but events unfold, it lessens the effect and cultivates in a forehead-slapping ending that does raise the odd snigger. " — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 20, 2013
3/5 36% Summer in February (2014) " It's an altogether hollow feeling that results in a love triangle story played out by numbers - albeit it very succinctly by Menual's hand." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 13, 2013
4/5 66% The Iceman (2013) " A truly mesmerising turn by Shannon that allows him to cultivate all his ugly thoughts into one brooding menace ..." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 9, 2013
3/5 63% The Liability (2013) " Offers some well-rounded performances from Roth, O'Connell and Mullan ... it offers nothing beyond the usual markers of such a coming-of-age film ..." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 16, 2013
4/5 68% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) " Turns the franchise up another notch, injects more nitrate and lets rip ... as events get more and more ridiculous and outrageous, but altogether, more satisfying." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 14, 2013
4/5 95% A Hijacking (2013) " What keeps things stimulating ... is a genuine sense of reality and how much of your own perception is invested in what you are watching." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 9, 2013
4/5 38% Dead Man Down (2013) " It's a modern-day, edgy love story at heart ... The climatic ending ... is pretty spectacular ... Though nothing new, it's beautifully realised and shot." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 6, 2013
4/5 78% Iron Man 3 (2013) " Black nicely gives us lighter and darker moments, all wrapped up in one satisfactory standalone Iron Man story ..." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 26, 2013
4/5 79% Reality (2013) " A chilling dose of filmic reality of how damaging and all consuming celebrity and some people's aspirations of it can be ..." — Real.com
Posted Apr 15, 2013
4/5 41% Parker (2013) " Parker is well executed, ultimately entertaining and totally consumable but hardly groundbreaking as action thrillers go." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 15, 2013
3/5 66% Great Expectations (2013) " An admirable watch of highbrow production values." — HeyUGuys
Posted Nov 27, 2012
4/5 46% The Sweeney (2013) " Big, brash, ballsy fun. It's a Winstone mecca for fans to witness their idol in all his former hard-man glory ..." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 30, 2012
3/5 56% Now Is Good (2013) " Fanning gives a truly impressive and memorable performance in this ... which will give Parker another dark horse in the running." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 30, 2012
4.5/5 75% Killing Them Softly (2012) " A totally enthralling verbal conquest from the word go, complete with some very fine acting from all involved." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 30, 2012
3/5 77% Take This Waltz (2012) " This film's saving grace is Williams whose character follows another tormented path of self-discovery/preservation ..." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 9, 2012
3/5 63% The Wedding Video (2014) " Still has lots of very funny moments and a realistic interpretation of the lengths some people go to when confronted by a camera lens and under ... pressure to perform." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 9, 2012
4/5 82% Shadow Dancer (2013) " Marsh's Shadow Dancer is a complex and beautifully realised Irish Troubles thriller of cerebral and psychological proportions." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 9, 2012
1/5 17% The Watch (2012) " Off-the-production-line comedy, marketed as a sci-fi fan-boy's lighter bit of fluffy entertainment. And the aliens - seen them, zapped them all before." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 9, 2012
4/5 63% Anna Karenina (2012) " It's certainly a unique blend of theatre and film with that necessary ingredient for period drama fans of unashamed melodrama in spades ..." — HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 9, 2012
4/5 88% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) " As uneven as the plot is at times, Nolan commendably retains the Batman's beating black heart in TDKR, with lead characters ever challenging our perceptions ... to keep things fresh." — Real.com
Posted Jul 22, 2012
3/5 56% Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012) " Scafaria makes sure that the apocalypse may be in full impact but the importance of having each other at the last moment is the lasting, comforting thought." — Real.com
Posted Jul 14, 2012
2/5 37% Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) " The plot ... just gets a little repetitious after a while, however goofy, accident-prone but genuinely good natured the characters are." — Real.com
