Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 98% Zootopia (2016) An entertaining and endlessly inventive comedy and something with more insight than anyone could have anticipated. ‐ CineVue
Posted Dec 30, 2016
4/5 69% Urban Hymn (2015) An impressively rounded character study set against the London riots of 2011. ‐ CineVue
Posted Oct 6, 2016
4/5 83% The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015) Demands investment and cuts deep down in the mind. ‐ CineVue
Posted Jun 7, 2016
2/5 58% Me Before You (2016) Me Before You seems blinkered on one thing and one thing alone - making audiences cry whatever means necessary, whether there's any authenticity to it or not. ‐ CineVue
Posted Jun 3, 2016
3/5 71% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) A slickly directed thriller that bears many of the typical twists and turns you'd expect from a le Carré tale. ‐ CineVue
Posted May 11, 2016
2/5 17% Ratchet & Clank (2016) The charm of the game has mostly disappeared, the inspired wit replaced with goofy gags. ‐ CineVue
Posted Apr 28, 2016
2/5 12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) As dull as films come, hinged on some primary school level ideas and a range of A-list actors left sputtering out meaningless dialogue. ‐ CineVue
Posted Apr 7, 2016
4/5 96% Sing Street (2016) Once director John Carney returns to his native Dublin for Sing Street, a 1980s set coming-of-age crowdpleaser with real depth, heart and wit to match its toe-tapping musical beats. ‐ CineVue
Posted Apr 5, 2016
4/5 70% Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (2013) Despite a few disappointments here and there, the team responsible for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 have done themselves proud. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 21, 2013
4/5 89% Le Week-End (2014) A tough watch at times, but it's honest and powerful, with a difficult-to-achieve lightness to it that injects warmth and humour in all the right places. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 11, 2013
3/5 78% Monsters University (2013) It may not be the sequel that Monsters, Inc. deserves, nor as classic as some of Pixar's previous efforts, but that doesn't mean that it's not worth a place on our cinema screens. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 26, 2013
3/5 93% This Is Martin Bonner (2013) For those with a willingness to go with the flow and discover the wonder hiding beneath the surface, This Is Martin Bonner is a triumph of the elegant kind. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 26, 2013
4/5 94% Stories We Tell (2013) The films greatest achievement is in how deeply mesmerising one woman's story can be, regardless of whether she's famous or not. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 24, 2013
4/5 90% For Those In Peril (2014) For Those In Peril never outstays its welcome and is slick! ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 24, 2013
3/5 55% Breathe In (2014) A movie held together thanks to the performances delivered by Felicity Jones and Guy Pearce. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Jun 20, 2013
4/5 48% I'm So Excited! (2013) I'm So Excited works best when it is basking in its screwball, ultra-camp essence. It's unlikely to ruffle any feathers, but boy is it great to see the Director having some fun. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 30, 2013
1/5 34% The Odd Life of Timothy Green (2012) The Odd Life of Timothy Green, finds Disney at an altogether new low, capped off by a cringeworthy dance sequence that will make you scream for Timothy to crawl back into his magical hole. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Apr 5, 2013
2/5 29% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) Even Dwayne Johnson couldn't save this sequel. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 27, 2013
4/5 49% Maniac (2013) Maniac is excelled by a career-altering performance from Wood and an uncomfortable sense of realism that's vested - and maintained - throughout. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Mar 15, 2013
4/5 89% Compliance (2012) Compliance, for its sheer nerve in tackling such difficult, yet need-to-know material is a terrific film. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 20, 2013
4/5 83% Side Effects (2013) A multi-layered and expertly-woven thriller. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 19, 2013
4/5 93% No (2013) An alluring lead performance from Bernal and a suitably low-key, almost purring soundtrack composed by Carlos Cabezas ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 8, 2013
4/5 86% Wreck-it Ralph (2012) Disney have struck gold outside of their partnership with Pixar, delivering a riotous, sharp and stirring rollercoaster ride of an animated film, reinforced by clever, sentimental video game references and saccharine delight. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 4, 2013
3/5 62% Jack Reacher (2012) It's doubtful that it will be remembered so fondly in years to come (unless it's because of their nonsensical decision to waste Richard Jenkins), but it's fun while it lasts. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Dec 22, 2012
3.5/5 87% Life of Pi (2012) Ang Lee has, for the most part, constructed such a wondrous piece of filmmaking that even the 3D works. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Dec 20, 2012
4/5 83% Laurence Anyways (2013) Director Xavier Dolan is fast cementing himself as a writer-director willing to take risks. It might well result in a film that boasts many imperfections, but it's commendable nevertheless. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Nov 30, 2012
3/5 92% Gimme The Loot (2013) Gimme the Loot is a slice of lo-fi filmmaking by a promising new talent that refreshingly shifts focus onto the everyday lives of two aspirational young people from a world that's seldom given prominence in film. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 19, 2012
4/5 90% Beyond The Hills (2013) Beyond the Hills may not be for everyone, but there's no denying that it's as intoxicating in its suggestions as it is alluring in its depiction of two people segregated by their differing beliefs ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 16, 2012
4/5 90% Keep the Lights On (2012) Keep the Lights On is an intense, haunting and gut-wrenchingly honest character drama about how addiction can tear love apart. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 16, 2012
4/5 78% Brave (2012) What makes Brave truly special is that, even if it were stripped of its dazzling visuals, laugh-out-loud humour and dynamism, it would remain a clever, arresting and emotionally involving. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 13, 2012
5/5 84% Berberian Sound Studio (2013) What Berberian Sound Studio accomplishes is a return to a more basic style of film-making than we've become accustomed to in recent years. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Aug 13, 2012
5/5 95% The Imposter (2012) The Imposter is one of those rare documentaries that, while its hard to know exactly how much is intensified for the purposes of making the film, is genuinely unsettling and infuriating to believe as fact and fiction. ‐ HeyUGuys
