Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 69% Camp X-Ray (2014) " An intense character study of life in incarceration for guard and guarded, without angling for obvious shock tactics. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 20, 2014
3/5 89% The Notorious Mr. Bout " A fascinating insight into the corruption of free-market capitalism, and what happens when anything goes and borders become irrelevant. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
3/5 27% Deliver Us from Evil (2014) " Although it has all the elements it does sport too many horror tropes as though the filmmaker doesn't have the power of his own convictions to boldly go where he hasn't gone before. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
3 43% Step Up: All In (2014) " Step Up 5 is another vehicle for showcasing the latest, creative street dance moves. Be 'All In' with this and resign yourself to the mawkishness to get the most out of it. It's the only way. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 31, 2014

Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/5 81% 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 No Score Yet Sixteen (2013) " 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 91% Mystery Road (2014) " 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 93% 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

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 Sep 26, 2013
3.5/5 50% 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

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

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
