Posted Apr 15, 2015
3/5 17% Last Knights (2015) "Combines elements of both the typical revenge plot thriller, and then the Game of Thrones inspired castles and brothels environment - offering absolutely nothing that we haven't seen before. " ‐ HeyUGuys

Posted Apr 13, 2015
2/5 59% The Last 5 Years (2015) "An intriguing study of couples balancing their career with their relationship, but we get lost in the monotonous music, and crave just a proper, good old-fashioned conversation. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 13, 2015
2/5 14% Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015) "The only thing that crosses your mind after seeing this is whether it's possible to travel back around 93 minutes and opt to see something else. " ‐ HeyUGuys

Posted Apr 7, 2015
2/5 20% Kidnapping Mr. Heineken (2015) "A disengaging thriller that struggles to compel the viewer, telling a unique, real-life story in an all too generic fashion. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 3, 2015
1/5 13% Seventh Son (2015) "It's difficult to comprehend quite why this stellar cast all signed up to this distinctively lacklustre project. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 2, 2015
3/5 71% The DUFF (2015) "This tongue-in-cheek endeavour is playful in its approach, never earnest enough to a point where it's unbearable. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 2, 2015
2/5 70% The Water Diviner (2015) "The story is remarkable and profound, however the way the tale has been presented and told is too cliched, devaluing the poignancy attached to this narrative. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 2, 2015
3/5 72% Suite Fran├žaise "It's very easy to be flippant with the material and lose sight of the context when a romantic narrative takes precedence - but the director never compromises on the severity of war. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 13, 2015

Posted Mar 13, 2015
2/5 31% Insurgent (2015) "Middle films in movie franchises run the risk of being devoid of closure and linearity, and it's that inconclusive nature to Robert Schwentke's Insurgent that proves to be its greatest misgiving. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 11, 2015
3/5 60% Run All Night (2015) "Anybody who pays for a ticket to see the latest Neeson actioner will know exactly what's in store - and it's safe to say this doesn't disappoint in that regard. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 10, 2015

Posted Mar 9, 2015
2/5 55% White Bird in a Blizzard (2014) "This should be a profound character study, but the cliched use of flashbacks and the mawkish elements to the piece detract heavily from our own enjoyment. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 9, 2015

Posted Mar 9, 2015
2/5 56% Focus (2015) "Focus is not a picture that reflects reality, and requires a true suspension of disbelief to fully get along with. However even then, it's still something of a struggle. " ‐ HeyUGuys

Posted Mar 9, 2015

Posted Mar 9, 2015
3/5 78% Kill the Messenger (2014) "Kill the Messenger is lacking in suspense, and given the nature of this film, and the way our protagonist becomes paranoid when becoming the subject of his own story - here's a film that needs a higher level of intensity. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 6, 2015
1/5 11% Unfinished Business (2015) "Painfully, and desperately unfunny. Which, for a film in the comedy genre, proves to be something of a problem. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 6, 2015
2/5 30% Chappie (2015) "Chappie sets itself up to be a truly breathtaking study of robot and human relations, but just fails to move or compel the audience. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 5, 2015
2/5 40% Two Men in Town (2015) "There are a handful of brilliant scenes (one between Whitaker and his adoptive mother played by Ellen Burstyn stands out), however they're few and far between. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 3, 2015

Posted Feb 18, 2015

Posted Feb 18, 2015
3/5 54% Woman in Gold (2015) "Mirren is as excellent as always in the lead, but the actress is let down by the filmmaker's inclination to be so cliched on occasion, undermining this narrative with frustrating conventionality. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 18, 2015
2/5 34% Two Night Stand (2014) "Though the simplicity of this narrative, and the restricted, confined setting is a unique selling point for Nichols, it's also suffocating, and to the filmmaker's detriment. " ‐ HeyUGuys

Posted Feb 18, 2015
4/5 83% What Happened, Miss Simone? "A candid, and painfully honest look into the life of the luminary, iconic Nina Simone. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 18, 2015

Posted Feb 18, 2015
4/5 73% I Am Michael "Following rather forgettable performances from James Franco in both Queen of the Desert and Every Thing Will Be Fine - also both showing at Berlinale - this is one of his career's finest. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 16, 2015
2/5 7% Are You Here (2014) "Having penned various episodes for both Mad Men and The Sopranos, what Weiner manages to squeeze into an entire season he's attempted to fit into almost two hours of cinema with this particular endeavour. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 16, 2015
3/5 71% Nasty Baby "A deft and perceptive US comedy about parenthood and friendship and the vicissitudes of modern life that culminates in a vicious and sinister final act that you really won't see coming. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 16, 2015

Posted Jan 28, 2015
3/5 62% La Maison De La Radio (2013) "There's a rhythm to Philibert's work, a tangible linearity - as he knows how to take every day life and illuminate it, find the subtleties, the nuances for us to appreciate and to resonate with. " ‐ HeyUGuys
