3/5 72% The German Doctor (2014) " The picture is beautifully shot and the serenity of the Argentine mountain landscape works as an effective contradiction to the deranged, demented narrative at hand." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
3/5 58% Underdogs (2015) " Undoubtedly accomplished enough to warrant such a wide release." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
3/5 53% Blood Ties (2014) " Everything is in place to have created a truly sensational piece of cinema, and yet you can't help feeling somewhat cold towards this film, despite the memorable, impactful finale." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
2/5 69% What If (2014) " With little risk taken, here is a film you've seen a million times before, and sadly, will see a million times again." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
2/5 23% Hector And The Search For Happiness (2014) " It's not as profound as it thinks it is, and the screenplay disappoints more than it impresses, but Hector and the Search for Happiness is a harmless, solidly performed romp." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
4/5 65% Lucy (2014) " Lucy is just a film that takes an intriguing (albeit absurd) narrative, and builds a world around it that is easy to get lost within." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
2/5 20% Into The Storm (2014) " Once the dust settles after Into the Storm has ripped your cinema screen in two, it curiously leaves little evidence it was ever there." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
3/5 60% The Grand Seduction (2014) " Though ultimately a somewhat forgettable feature film, The Grand Seduction does have a lot of heart and a certain charm to it which makes for an easy, gratifying experience. " — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
3/5 63% Kvinden i buret (The Keeper of Lost Causes) " Yet another example of fine cinema to come out of Scandinavia and while not quite as triumphant as fellow thrillers it remains an accomplished, commendable offering." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
1/5 38% If I Stay (2014) " There's only so much whispering of sweet nothings between our protagonists on random rooftops, before you question whether this is in fact a parody. Alas, and quite remarkably, it isn't." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
2/5 43% The Guvnors " A cliched, formulaic piece of cinema." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
2/5 33% As Above/So Below (2014) " As with so many horror movies, the setup is entrancing and it's the payoff which is hugely anticlimactic." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 29, 2014
3/5 45% Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) " Sin City is by no means a place you'd wish to book a family holiday, but 102 minutes immersed in this melancholic world does just the trick." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 26, 2014
3/5 76% Moebius (2014) " Moebius marks another feature to come from an innovative director who manages to live up to expectation, and yet at the same time, he never fails to compel and surprise." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 15, 2014
4/5 79% Welcome To New York " While the film revels in its naturalistic approach, regrettably the ending does become somewhat tedious, and we lose sight of the realism to some extent." — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 5, 2014
2/5 34% The Expendables 3 (2014) " There is only so long this concept can last - which, in truth, is around 20 minutes, never mind three bloody movies!" — HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 4, 2014
3 77% Who Is Dayani Cristal? (2014) " Who is Dayani Cristal? marks an accomplished sophomore feature film for Silver that is sure to upset and compel in equal measure. " — HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 31, 2014
2/5 63% Mood Indigo (2014) " A brief moment of enchantment, where a chord is struck just perfectly, and the tone just right. However sadly such moments come too few and far between. " — HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 31, 2014
2/5 13% A Promise (2014) " This film simply isn't very good!" — HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 31, 2014
3/5 61% Hercules (2014) " A picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 23, 2014
2/5 0% Pudsey the Dog: The Movie " You only need to look As far as Babe to see that talking animals can make for brilliant films and not completely alienate the parents in the audience, as this endeavour sadly does." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 15, 2014
3/5 83% Begin Again (2014) " For what is essentially a quite predictable endeavour for Carney, Begin Again does certainly throw in the odd surprise or two, particularly where the romantic narrative is concerned." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 8, 2014
2/5 36% Goddess " A little underwhelming, to say the least." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 2, 2014
4/5 67% The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared " This film is yet another gem to come out of Scandinavian cinema." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 1, 2014
4/5 75% Chinese Puzzle (2014) " A fitting end to a trio of fine movies, progressing accordingly and triumphantly." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 20, 2014
2/5 53% Jersey Boys (2014) " Not just from a narrative sense as we're losing the antagonist of the piece, but the entire spirit and tone changes, making for a hugely tedious final act." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 20, 2014
2/5 29% 3 Days To Kill (2014) " Far too generic and cliched, and offers very little we haven't seen before." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 20, 2014
2/5 33% The Hooligan Factory " A film that struggles to find its own identity." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 10, 2014
2/5 43% Common People " It may be exceedingly predictable, mawkish and unbearably earnest - but what can't be disputed, is that its heart is certainly in the right place." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 10, 2014
2/5 67% The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet " Though a film that will certainly stay with you, it's difficult to know exactly who this film is aimed at, and what is to be taken away from proceedings." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 10, 2014
3/5 74% Oculus (2014) " A shrewd, well-structured narrative that has been deftly executed." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 10, 2014
3/5 52% NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage (2014) " Despite the distinct talent of all of those involved - from Spacey to Mendes to Whelehan, the biggest winner in this instance is a certain William Shakespeare." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 6, 2014
4/5 83% Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets (2014) " You don't need to like the band to appreciate this documentary either, as just seeing what the music means to others is enlightening and invigorating." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 4, 2014
3/5 18% Jolene: The Indie Folk Star Movie (Benny & Jolene) " An interesting take on becoming a folk star." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 4, 2014
2/5 43% Mariachi Gringo (2013) " Exceedingly irritating" — HeyUGuys
Posted May 30, 2014
4/5 91% Omar (2014) " Abu-Assad brings raw, human emotions into the situation, adding a poignancy to this engrossing piece of cinema." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 29, 2014
4/5 89% Downhill " An accomplished piece of cinema." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 28, 2014
3/5 91% Venus in Fur (2014) " A little overwhelmed by its own self-indulgence and contrivance, which ultimately seeks in damaging your enjoyment of the overall piece." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 28, 2014
3/5 86% Run & Jump (2014) " This bears much promise as to what could achieved from this talented filmmaker in the future." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 23, 2014
3/5 90% Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " Edge of Tomorrow remains as an unadulterated, captivating thriller, which revels in being such unreservedly good fun." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 22, 2014
2/5 14% Blended (2014) " Blended is conventional and predictable in every way, shape and form with stereotypical aspects infuriating and needlessly employed, ensuring this film has little to no unique identity of its own." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 22, 2014
3/5 52% Postman Pat: The Movie (2014) " Kids will love it! " — HeyUGuys
Posted May 21, 2014
2/5 16% Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014) " This film is very offbeat and psychedelic in that regard, though regrettably not nearly as accomplished or engaging as Alice in Wonderland which is loosely resembles." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 19, 2014
3/5 76% Concussion (2013) " Concussion is wonderfully shot, a confident and accomplished debut for a filmmaker with a promising career ahead of her." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 15, 2014
4/5 73% Godzilla (2014) " This seemingly superfluous reboot, is something of a triumph." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 11, 2014
2/5 20% Sabotage (2014) " A terribly generic action thriller with more holes in the plot than you'll see at a golf course." — HeyUGuys
Posted May 6, 2014
2/5 18% Tarzan (2014) " A generic, superfluous offering. There's very little in here for the adults, but kids may learn a thing or two at he very least." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 30, 2014
2/5 7% Plastic (2014) " Plastic is an unpredictable, albeit convoluted production that bears many twists and turns for the audience to enjoy." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 29, 2014
4/5 65% 1,000 Times Good Night (2014) " The film survives mostly off the wonderful, absorbing leading performance by Binoche, in what a truly layered character to get your head around." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 28, 2014
1/5 29% Pompeii (2014) " Anderson's offering is never quite accessible or empathetic enough, and with a romance we struggle to believe in, it deems this particular project something of a failure." — HeyUGuys
