2/5 18% 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 72% 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
Posted Apr 2, 2014
3/5 77% Noah (2014) " This is undoubtedly a memorable, striking cinematic event, and despite whether you enjoy this picture or not, it's certainly a film for the big screen." — HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 1, 2014
3/5 38% The Fold " Though Jencks can certainly be accused of spoon-feeding his audience on occasion, he still manages to keep you compelled." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 28, 2014
2/5 0% Almost Married " There are a handful of truly funny moments, however there isn't quite enough fluency to the dialogue." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 28, 2014
3/5 81% G.B.F. (2014) " When you reach the end of this title you feel rather exhausted, so maybe an entire season would be pushing it just that little bit too far." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 21, 2014
1/5 27% A Long Way Down (2014) " Emotionally manipulative and unbearably mawkish!" — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 17, 2014
4/5 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " If you're a fan of the first movie, which, let's face it, you most definitely are, then this will be everything you had hoped for and more." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 17, 2014
3/5 77% Veronica Mars (2014) " If there is one thing to be said of this picture, it's to simply enjoy it for what it's worth." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 14, 2014
3/5 80% The Machine (2014) " Despite the various positives that exist, the film does remain rather flat throughout, and you're left wanting at times, as you wait for the suspense to kick in." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/5 46% The Book Thief (2013) " Regrettably this poignant and profound story, does not feel very poignant nor profound at all." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 10, 2014
3/5 18% Ride Along (2014) " Ride Alone is ultimately one joke stretched out into feature length form, and though tedious at times, fortunately for Story, that one joke happens to be a funny one." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 10, 2014
2/5 60% Non-Stop (2014) " The whole concept to Non-Stop is completely hackneyed and frivolous, but remains compelling given the fast paced, guessing game that ensues." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 10, 2014
3/5 85% We Are What We Are (2013) " Remakes may get a lot of stick in Hollywood, as filmmakers can be accused of being somewhat lazy and uncreative in that regard." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 10, 2014
2/5 13% Bullet " Such mediocrity extends right up until the final moments, with a hugely anticlimactic finale." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 10, 2014
4/5 98% The Invisible War (2012) " Where this picture is truly triumphant, is within the significance of its very existence. This film simply needs to have been made, and it needs to be seen." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 10, 2014
2/5 23% Need For Speed (2014) " Need for Speed is incredibly conventional and prosaic, with so little innovation in this title, as a film we've seen countless times before." — HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 10, 2014
4/5 92% Calvary (2014) " Keeps you captivated from the opening line to the very last, this wonderfully written screenplay marks a triumphant sophomore endeavour for McDonagh." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 20, 2014
2/5 —— Beauty And The Beast (2014) " Beauty and the Beast is one of the great, traditional love stories and this film simply feels devoid of any such romanticism, with no chemistry or spark between our protagonists of any kind." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 19, 2014
3/5 48% Stalingrad (2014) " A flawed production, certainly, but the ambition is to be admired as it's a bold piece of filmmaking, and given it feels so grand in scope." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 18, 2014
3/5 40% Cesar Chavez (2014) " Luna has taken the move from acting to directing with such confidence and ease." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 18, 2014
3/5 83% The Unknown Known (2014) " There are known unknowns. There are unknown unknowns, and there are unknown knowns. Make any sense yet?!" — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 17, 2014
1/5 —— Aloft " Aloft stirs nothing within you, not emotionally, not provocatively." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 17, 2014
3/5 —— The Two Faces of January (2014) " Rather than feel like an actual film noir, instead it feels like a modern film imitating the genre, and as such struggles to compel in quite the way it should." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 17, 2014
2/5 —— Das finstere Tal (The Dark Valley) " This takes itself far too seriously and suffers greatly as a result." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 17, 2014
5/5 100% Boyhood (2014) " A quite remarkable piece of cinema." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 17, 2014
3/5 70% Love Is In The Air (2014) " There's a charm to this title, in spite of the fact it's an immensely cliched, predictable romance flick that is heavily flawed to say the least." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 17, 2014
3/5 —— The Better Angels " Such comparisons to the work of Malick, who himself was a producer on this feature, are ultimately the film's very undoing." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 17, 2014
4/5 —— Kraftidioten (In Order of Disappearance) " On the surface, In Order of Disappearance is a generic, archetypal revenge plot mission, but that doesn't prevent it being a film to indulge in and enjoy." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 17, 2014
2/5 70% God Help the Girl " God Help the Girl is a quaint, pretentious film, representative of a quaint, pretentious band." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 12, 2014
2/5 33% The Monuments Men (2014) " If The Monuments Men was in danger of extinction, it would take some convincing to risk your life to save it." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 12, 2014
5/5 83% Snowpiercer (2014) " Though completely absurd in many ways, Bong's handling of the source material is so expertly done that we're completely immersed in this tale, allowing for ourselves to be taken wherever the South Korean director sees fit." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 12, 2014
3/5 —— '71 " There is certainly enough about this young filmmaker to suggest a bright career beckons." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 12, 2014
3/5 38% 8 Minutes Idle " On the plus side, for the second time this year we're witness to a lonely man travelling around on public transport with his pet cat." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 12, 2014
4/5 64% Bastards (2013) " Bastards is a brooding, atmospheric piece." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 12, 2014
4/5 100% Love Is Strange (2014) " Extremely subtle and touching cinema." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 12, 2014
3/5 53% Cuban Fury (2014) " If there is anything to be taken away from the film too, it's that if dancing can impress somebody like Rashida Jones, then there may well be a few new members signing up to Zumba classes across the nation." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 12, 2014
1/5 15% Endless Love (2014) " An excruciatingly maudlin piece of cinema." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 12, 2014
4/5 100% Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter " David Zellner co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Nathan, as two brothers pay homage to two other brothers who know how to make damn good movies - and yet this holds its own, in what is a more than worthy effort." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 6, 2014
4/5 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " Anderson has created a whimsical, dreamlike world where anything goes, allowing him the licence to do whatever he sees fit. So by all means indulge in GBH - the sort that won't land you in jail." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 6, 2014
3/5 78% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) " Complimenting the enchanting, venturesome nature of the story, a strong balance has been achieved with this title, as a film that's touching, funny and educational." — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 4, 2014
4/5 96% The Lego Movie (2014) " Though it takes a short while to get used to the unique (and extremely colourful) visual aesthetic, it works a treat. " — HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 3, 2014
3/5 56% Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) " Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is inoffensive and easy to indulge in, as a film that maintains your attention throughout - with an unrelenting and compelling final act." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jan 19, 2014
3/5 65% The Railway Man (2014) " Teplitzky has structured his film masterfully, as the way this tale is told, intertwining between various flashbacks, is completely seamless." — HeyUGuys
Posted Jan 6, 2014
2/5 58% Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (2013) " Regardless of the criticisms and shortcomings within this uninspiring biopic, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom remains an important piece of filmmaking it's just a shame that the educational purpose of this title is not quite backed up emotionally." — HeyUGuys
Posted Dec 27, 2013
5/5 77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) " DiCaprio turns in one of his finest ever performances." — HeyUGuys
Posted Dec 20, 2013
4/5 93% American Hustle (2013) " Keeps you guessing throughout, a very well written piece and yet another Oscar contender." — HeyUGuys
Posted Dec 18, 2013
3/5 75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) " Great fun this may well be, but the finale signifies a distinct running out of ideas." — HeyUGuys
Posted Dec 16, 2013
4/5 74% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " Jackson evidently takes great pleasure in just giving us all this wonderful sense of escapism, with some unashamed, fantastical fun to indulge in." — HeyUGuys
