Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 100% I Am Not a Witch (2017) I Am Not a Witch is flawed, fascinating and disappointingly unpersuasive: partly due to its lack of a commanding stance, a slender narrative and ill governed humour but there are winning moments that derive from some character traits.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 51% Jungle (2017) Jungle is fumbled fun for the first half but just about pithy enough to not seem longer than its running time.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 86% The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl (2017) Yuasa's film frequently feels like being trapped in the spin cycle of a malfunctioning washing machine during a colour wash, encased on drugs in a colossal blancmange or floating through the dreams of an inebriated Walt Disney.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 92% My Pure Land (2017) Masud's style is refreshingly rugged yet extrapolates scraps of beauty from the incredible acting and impecunious settings.‐ HeyUGuys

5/5 97% The Death of Stalin (2017) n our age of real life self-mocking, opinionated hogwash, the surrealist/satirist Iannucci has, with The Death of Stalin, once again nailed it.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 47% Moon Dogs (2016) Despite the low budget indie feel, Moon Dogs is worth catching at the cinema due to the endearing, bittersweet story and characters, combined with dark and rousing comedy/ drama that's much more stirring than most mainstream efforts.‐ HeyUGuys

1/5 54% 47 Meters Down (2017) In an age where we are inundated with countless CG shark features, even though they are unapologetically shoddy, most have a great deal more imagination than this limp, insipid, killer fish thriller.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 89% Hounds of Love (2017) Young shuns gratuitous violence & gruelling exploitation to set Hounds of Love apart from lesser contemporary sub-genre efforts as well as grimier Giallo and Grindhouse flicks like Almost Human, House on the Edge of The Park and I Spit On Your Grave.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 50% Scribe (La mécanique de l'ombre) (2017) Severs ties to pre and post millennial paranoia tech thrillers and benefits hugely from lo-fi realism which makes it persistently gripping and simmering with calm-cutting suspense.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 89% David Lynch: The Art Life (2017) A scintillating, elegant plummet into the past and mind of one of our greatest living surrealists.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 73% The Void (2017) A striking neon/noir montage of menacing clouds and effervescent organs makes The Void's visuals stand out like an infected zombie thumb from the modern horror rigmarole.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2017
2/5 75% The Eyes of My Mother (2016) An austere, redolent debut feature which slightly stirs and disturbs at times but, at a slender seventy six minutes, it is still often shockingly monotonous.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 No Score Yet Bloodlands (2017) For a film which so accurately depicts such raw, rundown communities, the paranormal elements meld surprisingly well with the realism, even when accentuated to be predominantly weird and gothic.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 84% Godzilla Resurgence (Shin Godzilla) (2016) Feels more like comprehensive news coverage instead of a monster movie with a linear storyline.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
5/5 86% The Transfiguration (2017) The Transfiguration is, like its protagonist, so much more than its label may suggest but it remains a timeless and intoxicating example of progressive genre film-making.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
5/5 58% It Stains the Sands Red (2017) A remarkable work for film fans in general, as well as being one of the greatest zombie movies ever made.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2017
1/5 7% Rings (2017) A hollow, plastic cash-in, crudely crafted with an awkwardly jimmied origin subplot, flat-pack teen protagonists and a story which could have been jotted on the back of a stamp en route to the pitch meeting.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2017
3/5 20% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) A surprisingly decent film, and easily the best of the series.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2017
4/5 97% Your Name. (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2017) A stirring, astonishing and sometimes befuddling joy from start to finish.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2016
4/5 46% Free State of Jones (2016) McConaughey conjures, and Ross extracts, a haunted and complex performance, honed with dexterity, restraint and relayed with finesse.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2016
5/5 40% The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016) The 9th Life of Louis Drax's flowers from its drama into a paranoid fantasy masterpiece that's as equally enthralling as it is magical.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 90% Emelie (2016) Not only could Emelie feasibly start a spate of similar psycho babysitter knock-offs if successful but it is also a great deal more interesting than most of its sub-genre predecessors.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2016
2/5 47% The Take (Bastille Day) (2016) Bastille Day thuds with energised fun for the first half but eventually ails with the sterile air of a latter-day, Euro-shot Steven Seagal feature.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 91% Speed Sisters (2017) Speed Sisters sometimes dallies like it's looking for a reason, or has lost its point in the vibrant camaraderie, but the film judders with an energy lacking from most documentaries.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2016
4/5 100% Kill Zone 2 (Saat po long 2) (2016) A colossal, bombastic and brilliantly crafted action thriller with a strong script and multifarious characters.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2016
1/5 55% Anguish (2015) This type of horror film should leave a lasting impression but Anguish languishes lost and anxious in sub-genre limbo.‐ HeyUGuys

5/5 76% Baskin (2016) Baffles and bedazzles before blistering into a masterpiece.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2016
4/5 81% Southbound (2016) Southbound, is terse, significant work, efficiently felling frights and dread in a manner that may even resound with general audiences as well as genre aficionados.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2016
4/5 59% The Mind's Eye (2016) An electrifying, retina-searing, sense-bombarding b-flick that will leave you lobotomised, if not shell-shocked, and half smiling in a mad kind of way.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2016
2/5 No Score Yet The Hexecutioners (2015) Intangible dream sequences instil an uncanny air but fail to prevail over fundamental script flaws and bungled scares.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2016
3/5 86% The Mule (2014) A face-achingly hilarious and literally gut-wrenching indie debut.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2016
4/5 92% Miss Hokusai (Sarusuberi: Miss Hokusai) (2016) Miss Hokusai can sometimes feel a little too light on its feet, with a tendency to meander from the narrative path, but its dipping in and out of various lives and dramas, makes it all the more vibrant and unique. ‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2016
4/5 97% Mavis! (2016) An inspiring story of a soaring sound and its most joyous, glistening star.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2016
3/5 46% The 33 (2015) Strong drama and inherent humanity prevail to ensure that even the most hard-hearted of viewers will crack and blubber with a lump in their throats.‐ HeyUGuys

1/5 11% Dirty Grandpa (2016) Brit director Dan Mazer has excreted the mightiest blot on De Niro's CV yet‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 88% Office (Hua li shang ban zu) (2015) Too many characters and strands are built then buried in favour of big, gaudy dance sequences, most of which lack the tunes to be catchy and the heart to truly strike a chord.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2015
83% Road Games (2016) It's reasonably entertaining if not a tad by the numbers.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 No Score Yet Booked Out (2012) Clichéd and often wooden but with some interesting flourishes and a satisfying conclusion.‐ Little White Lies
