Posted Jul 1, 2015
4/5 62% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "A playful, effervescent production, complete with an endearing, tongue-in-cheek tone that gives the director an incredible degree of licence to simply have fun. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 29, 2015
5/5 97% Amy (2015) "By the close of play you feel like you knew Amy yourself, similarly to Senna when you witness the final events and find yourself moved in a way you hadn't expected. " ‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 71% Gascoigne "Preston must be commended highly for making such a tender feature, studying the highs and lows, but revelling predominantly in the former. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 8, 2015
2/5 95% Spy (2015) "Jokes are predictable, cheap and far too easy, as with many films of the spoof sub-genre. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 1, 2015
4/5 77% Danny Collins (2015) "Dan Fogelman has achieved something that only very few, accomplished filmmakers can - which is to find a triumphant balance between comedy and pathos. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 27, 2015
3/5 50% San Andreas (2015) "A film that deviates away from sentimentality, and while we may crave more profundity, Peyton's commitment to pure entertainment is unwavering. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 27, 2015
3/5 87% Moomins On The Riviera (Muumit Rivieralla) "It does remain a challenge to immerse yourself and invest in the tale at hand, such is the pure absurdity of it all. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 21, 2015
3/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "Painstakingly idealistic, and all too contrived, feeling more akin to an recruitment advertisement for NASA, than a piece of fantastical cinema. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 18, 2015
3/5 80% A Royal Night Out "There is a sense of enchantment to this title, and an exuberance that emanates off the narrative, as the celebratory mood of the characters extends to the viewer. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 14, 2015
3/5 89% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) "Despite being set in the crazy, madcap world of show business, this narrative takes place against the placid tranquility of the Alps, forming a contrast that makes for an accomplished, absorbing feature. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 14, 2015
3/5 54% The Age of Adaline (2015) "Rather than just revel in the absurdity of it all, this film can be accused of being too stony-faced in parts. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 5, 2015
2/5 59% Spooks: The Greater Good "There is a lot of scope in rebranding the MI5 on film, away from the traditionalist tropes of 007, and vie for a more naturalistic take - but sadly Spooks: The Greater Good fails to deliver " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 5, 2015

Posted Apr 16, 2015

Posted Apr 15, 2015
3/5 16% 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 15, 2015

Posted Apr 13, 2015
2/5 60% 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 9, 2015
3/5 92% Jauja (2015) "Though admiring the filmmaker's innovation and inclination for minimalism, the lack of linearity and narrative structure is to the film's detriment. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 7, 2015

Posted Apr 3, 2015
1/5 12% 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 72% 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 62% 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 76% 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
2/5 0% Lou! Journal Infime "By the time Lou! has finished you feel like you've downed an entire packet of popping candy and washed it down with cherryade. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 13, 2015
2/5 30% 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

Posted Mar 9, 2015
4/5 95% Catch Me Daddy (2015) "To call this title intense would be something of an understatement, in what is a brutally disquieting watch. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 9, 2015
2/5 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "An unwanted throwback to the sort of film you'd stumble across in 1998, late on a Friday night on Channel 5. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 9, 2015
3/5 77% 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 31% 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
3/5 84% Predestination (2015) "Had this been any more sincere or stony-faced it simply wouldn't work, instead thriving in the frivolity of it all. " ‐ HeyUGuys

Posted Feb 18, 2015
4/5 100% Taxi "It's of great commendation to this inspiring filmmaker that we care so much for the characters and their respective predicaments. We abide by their tales and fall for their stories, despite the fact we're continuously question whether it's all made up. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 18, 2015
2/5 42% Knight of Cups "While you can admire the filmmaker for his unconventional means of expressing himself, without any sense of linearity, or character development, it becomes impossible to invest in this picture. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 18, 2015
3/5 52% 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
3/5 88% Coherence (2014) "Coherence is, at times, somewhat incoherent, but always on the right side of farcicality. " ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 18, 2015
