You're Next (2013)

"You're Next shakes up the genre after a raft of recent contenders, such as the slicker-looking (but less effective) The Purge." ‐HeyUGuys

Bachelorette (2012)

"It's hard to feel anything but vacuity after watching, regardless of Dunst's commendable and animated turn at crushing the nuptials dream." ‐HeyUGuys

Top Cat:The Movie (UK) (2011)

"Top Cat returns with a purr rather than a MEOW, sorely let down by its odd technicalities and lack of engaging script." ‐

The Frozen Ground (2013)

"As a debut thriller of high-profile interest (in the story of Hansen), Walker has held his own and produced something very watchable and well executed." ‐HeyUGuys

Snitch (2013)

"Overall Snitch aims to entertain and yank a parental heartstring but events unfold, it lessens the effect and cultivates in a forehead-slapping ending that does raise the odd snigger. " ‐HeyUGuys

Summer in February (2014)

"It's an altogether hollow feeling that results in a love triangle story played out by numbers - albeit it very succinctly by Menual's hand." ‐HeyUGuys

The Iceman (2013)

"A truly mesmerising turn by Shannon that allows him to cultivate all his ugly thoughts into one brooding menace ..." ‐HeyUGuys

The Liability (2013)

"Offers some well-rounded performances from Roth, O'Connell and Mullan ... it offers nothing beyond the usual markers of such a coming-of-age film ..." ‐HeyUGuys

Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

"Turns the franchise up another notch, injects more nitrate and lets rip ... as events get more and more ridiculous and outrageous, but altogether, more satisfying." ‐HeyUGuys

A Hijacking (2013)

"What keeps things stimulating ... is a genuine sense of reality and how much of your own perception is invested in what you are watching." ‐HeyUGuys

Dead Man Down (2013)

"It's a modern-day, edgy love story at heart ... The climatic ending ... is pretty spectacular ... Though nothing new, it's beautifully realised and shot." ‐HeyUGuys

Iron Man 3 (2013)

Reality (2013)

"A chilling dose of filmic reality of how damaging and all consuming celebrity and some people's aspirations of it can be ..." ‐

Parker (2013)

The Sweeney (2013)

Now Is Good (2012)

"Fanning gives a truly impressive and memorable performance in this ... which will give Parker another dark horse in the running." ‐HeyUGuys

The Wedding Video (2014)

Shadow Dancer (2013)

"Marsh's Shadow Dancer is a complex and beautifully realised Irish Troubles thriller of cerebral and psychological proportions." ‐HeyUGuys

The Watch (2012)

"Off-the-production-line comedy, marketed as a sci-fi fan-boy's lighter bit of fluffy entertainment. And the aliens - seen them, zapped them all before." ‐HeyUGuys

Anna Karenina (2012)

"It's certainly a unique blend of theatre and film with that necessary ingredient for period drama fans of unashamed melodrama in spades ..." ‐HeyUGuys

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

"As uneven as the plot is at times, Nolan commendably retains the Batman's beating black heart in TDKR, with lead characters ever challenging our perceptions ... to keep things fresh." ‐

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012)

"Scafaria makes sure that the apocalypse may be in full impact but the importance of having each other at the last moment is the lasting, comforting thought." ‐

Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012)

"The plot ... just gets a little repetitious after a while, however goofy, accident-prone but genuinely good natured the characters are." ‐

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

"It's not about the action as such, rather how the characters come to be as we travel down the path of their self-awareness. The action merely enhances this intriguing process." ‐

God Bless America (2012)

"A combination of blatant shock tactics and poignant, pin-sharp verbal tirades from its lead that are rendered darkly amusing, or you would cry with despair at the apparent truth." ‐

The Hunter (2012)

"A slow-burner about survival in general that may seem predictable in parts and meander in others, but the intensity with which the psychological developments suddenly manifest is its ultimate power." ‐

Joyful Noise (2012)

"Disarmingly heart-warming in its musical prowess and lazy in its storytelling development, hoping that the former - plus the big names - will attract a large enough crowd to keep it buoyant at the box office." ‐

Killer Joe (2012)

"A seemingly hopeless spiral of existence ... there is some depraved glee that this filmmaker takes in toying with his hapless cast, and his latest film is no exception nor for the faint-hearted." ‐

Your Sister's Sister (2012)

"The film's strength is in its realistic improvisation, like a window on three, average lives in a cocoon for a brief moment that will be easily forgotten tomorrow." ‐

La fée (The Fairy) (2012)

"For pure entertainment and high-spirited comedy value, The Fairy is as good as any gone before ... once you have seen one of their films, you'll never forget it that's for sure." ‐

Lay the Favorite (2012)

The Five-Year Engagement (2012)

Red Lights (2012)

"If it wasn't for the acting talent that his [Cortés] latest film has attracted, Red Lights would have fallen at the first hurdle - however curious we may be at its subject matter." ‐

Rock of Ages (2012)

The Pact (2012)

"While it retreads well-trodden horror paths and shies away from any originality, it does favour heightening the mystery over goriness, relying on some impressive visuals ..." ‐

Red Tails (2012)

"Red Tails is a war action buff's matinee delight. It could be argued that making a more gritty account would have detracted from the focus on the strong buddy element ..." ‐

Ill Manors (2012)

"As directorial debuts go, Drew has yet to grow but has wisely chosen a subject matter close to his heart where he can reach out simultaneously with his music and lyrics, like some latter-day poet." ‐

Prometheus (2012)

"Ridley coaxes out some memorable performances from Rapace and Fassbender, and keeps a consistent sense of man's curiosity at the bigger evolution picture... The rest is open to interpretation." ‐

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

"Sanders' outing is a Gothic technical triumph in many ways... there is a lot of visual wonder to bask in and be inspired by, making Sanders' next project one to watch out for." ‐

Get the Gringo (2012)

Dark Shadows (2012)

Silent House (2012)

"Has a powerful enough context behind it, but ... it disappoints ... Still, Olsen is a star worth following and has carved out an impressive niche in the psychological thriller genre." ‐
