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 82% 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 68% 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 54% 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 54% 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 50% 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 74% 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 19% 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 " 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
Posted Apr 28, 2014
4/5 85% The Voices " It's a genuine delight." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 28, 2014
3/5 —— Drunktown's Finest (2014) " Drunktown's Finest - A low-budget picture with bigger things on its mind." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 28, 2014
2/5 —— Hits " There is undoubtedly a lot to be admired about this piece, and Cross has shown a lot of promise in just his directorial debut but this comedy i a film that's not particularly funny" — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 28, 2014
5/5 93% Fruitvale Station (2013) " A tragic, grievous subject matter handled delicately and efficiently." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 28, 2014
3/5 68% They Came Together (2014) " Inane, unavailing and ultimately, rather farcical, They Came Together defies the odds and somehow manages to maintain its hilarity, despite fearing the joke will wear thin after a mere matter of moments. " — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 25, 2014
3/5 —— The Informant (Gibraltar) " In spite of the dramatic potential in the real events regrettably The Informant is a somewhat generic production, that neither does little to impress nor offend" — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 25, 2014
3/5 50% We Are The Freaks " Falling between a satirical social commentary and a full on teen comedy caper - Justin Edgar's We Are The Freaks is chaotic yet maintains a genial spirit and distinct watchability." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 25, 2014
4/5 93% An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker (2013) " An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker is a film simple in execution but complex and demanding in its message." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 25, 2014
4/5 96% Blue Ruin (2014) " Suspenseful and intense in parts, darkly comic in others, there's a brilliant tone to this memorable piece, as Saulnier manages to find the perfect middle ground between humour and morbidity." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 25, 2014
4/5 88% Frank (2014) " A memorable piece of cinema, that marks the continuos rise of one of Britain's most promising directors." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 25, 2014
4/5 96% The Lunchbox (2014) " A moving piece of cinema." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 23, 2014
4/5 96% Wrinkles (2014) " A charming production, poignant and tender and one that is bound to move and compel you - while remaining so effortlessly subtle throughout." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 23, 2014
2/5 26% The Love Punch (2014) " While there is a sequel planned for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, let's just sincerely hope that this particular endeavour, though inoffensive, ends abruptly here." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 23, 2014
3/5 58% Reaching for the Moon (2013) " The film, much like our protagonist, would benefit from letting itself be a little more uninhibited." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 23, 2014
3/5 50% The Sea " Though a flawed piece of cinema, The Sea marks a quite promising debut for Brown, as a film that certainly stays with you long after the credits roll." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 23, 2014
2/5 23% The Other Woman (2014) " Though the laughs are somewhat cheap, The Other Woman remains an easy to indulge in comedy, if a little conventional." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 23, 2014
2/5 43% Honour (2014) " We don't leave the cinema feeling like we've just sat through a truly accomplished piece of cinema, and unfortunately, in this instance, that's what matters most." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 10, 2014
4/5 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " Inherently good fun and a more than worthy trip to the cinema!" — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 8, 2014
2/5 47% Rio 2 (2014) " Given the strikingly colourful, vibrant aesthetic, and the South American flavour that exists, with a carnival spirit prevalent, sadly the animation is somewhat underwhelming." — HeyUGuys
