4/5 97% The Age of Shadows (2016) The Age of Shadows is a pulsating, highly entertaining film that is yet another worthy edition to the ever-growing catalogue of cinematic gems that Korea has produced over the last few decades.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 0% Wolves at the Door (2016) Delivers some stellar performances & a genuinely terrifying story, but is largely let down by the filmmaker's inability to understand that there are limits to what can & cannot be shown on screen when it comes to the retelling of real life murders.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 90% The Olive Tree (El olivo) (2016) The Olive Tree is an alluring fable with undertones and symbols that punctuate a heart-warming modern metaphor that is well worth watching.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 100% Uncertain (2017) Although the film has a bitter, melancholy feel to it, the narrative reaches a satisfying conclusion and all three men show how powerful hope can be.‐ HeyUGuys

1/5 10% I.T. (2016) For a film which purports to deal with issues of privacy, I.T falls short of making a convincing commentary about the subject, resorting instead to cliched tropes about modern technology.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 84% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) Exceeds in scares and creates a story of intrigue that more importantly features fully realised, three dimensional, characters we genuinely care for.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 86% The Lost City of Z (2017) A film which harks back to an era of courageous filmmaking, and for that James Gray should be commended.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 93% LoveTrue (2016) The film is allowed to be funny, and sad, and certainly lives up to the latter half of its title.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 83% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) Against all odds this haunted-house horror/elaborate board game advert isn't a total bust.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
2/5 57% Trespass Against Us (2017) Plot threads produce no payoff, support players are little more than colourful distractions and large stretches of meandering, water-treading melodrama allow flashes of inspiration to get lost in the shuffle.‐ HeyUGuys

5/5 100% O.J.: Made in America (2016) Ezra Edelman has painted a first-class portrait of the most divisive of icons, juxtaposing his rise and fall with an eventful period of American history. This is an excellent documentary - a credit to ESPN's 30 for 30 series.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Some of our favourite characters are wasted in the charge to reinvigorate the X-Men franchise yet again. The weakest of Singer's recent trilogy, but not without its engaging moments.‐ HeyUGuys
