4/5 98% Toy Story 4 (2019) Despite the endless speculations on whether they could pull off yet another sequel, it's safe to say that Pixar didn't flinch, and the result is as satisfying as anyone would've hoped. - The Jewish Chronicle EDIT

91% Eating Animals (2018) All in all, Eating Animals makes for a sobering watch, and by the time you've sat through a quarter of it, you'll either be thanking your lucky stars for being a vegetarian or you'll become one on the spot. - The London Economic EDIT

2/5 40% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Godzilla: King Of The Monsters presents such a preposterous and idiotic plot, that even those with expert knowledge of the franchise might find it impossible to follow. - The Jewish Chronicle EDIT

3/5 46% Red Sparrow (2018) Needlessly sadistic and often troubling in tone, some keen supporting performances can't save this uneven and forgetful film. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
3/5 73% The Children Act (2018) Emma Thompson once again proves she's our finest actress working today. The power of the film is diluted slightly by an insistence of adherence to the source but the fine performances shine through. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 97% The Rider (2018) Bold, heartfelt and, most importantly, unafraid, this is a remarkable film. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 82% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) Another fine document of American life at an astonishingly strange point in its history. Sadly the film fails to answer its own questions, despite its most impressive and moving moments appearing to offer something of a solution. - HeyUGuys EDIT

Read More | Posted May 30, 2019
4/5 89% Rocketman (2019) Oozing with moments of high camp and of utter euphoric joy, Rocketman does a great job in capitalising on John's impressive back catalogue of catchy rock anthems to give us one of the greatest rock biopics of the decade. - The Jewish Chronicle EDIT

4/5 57% Aladdin (2019) The cast impresses, especially Smith filling some enormous boots, and there is both a rush of nostalgia and magic to make this film well worth your time. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Strike (Mango) (2019) An enjoyable family film, however a muddled plot means the fun goes on a little too long. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted May 10, 2019
2/5 41% Where Hands Touch (2018) Where Hands Touch is ultimately let down by a deeply contrived narrative and tone-deaf melodramatic style which only serves to diminish the importance and urgency of the real life stories behind Assante's screenplay. - The Jewish Chronicle EDIT

3/5 56% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) The film is buoyed by an impressive performance from Efron. However the narrative omissions and screenplay deficiencies, which appear to stem from the filmmakers' veneration of the central character, dull the impact of the film. - HeyUGuys EDIT

Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2019
3/5 45% What Men Want (2019) The film's charm offensive breaks down most of the narrative barriers to enjoyment, and with Erykah Badu and Tracy Morgan making great hay with their roles, this turns out to a fun film. - HeyUGuys EDIT
