T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 83% Juliet, Naked (2018) A trio of fine performances handle the depths of a failing relationship, and the spiky toxicity of fandom, well. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 89% The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) SUMMARY Family fun with a killer wit - destined for greatness. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 47% Dumbo (2019) A slice of perfect Burtonian cake, with spectacular set pieces, a rich visual flair and some excellent performances. The finest family fun, but don't expect to come out wanting to run away and join the circus. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 48% Bel Canto (2018) Fine performances lead the film, which has an original and engaging subject but falls short of catching the high emotional heights it seeks. - HeyUGuys EDIT

2/5 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) A fine director and a spirited cast are constrained by the seemingly voluntarily imposed genre restrictions. We've seen this done so much better before, and the evidence of a much better film lurks beneath the surface. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 70% Adrift (2018) A stirring tale, well told with two lead performances that carry the audience through the narrative ebbs and flows. Woodley, as always, is the MVP. - HeyUGuys EDIT

5/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Avengers: Endgame goes galaxies beyond expectations and exceeds anything that any of us could have imagined. The perfect end to an incredible series of films. - HeyUGuys EDIT

2/5 23% The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death (2015) The lazy, ineptness of the screenplay doesn't help matters, and writer Jon Croker seems keener on ticking every box in a notional 'How To Make A Horror Film' manual than creating enduring characters or a truly riveting storyline. - CineVue EDIT

1/5 29% Annabelle (2014) Annabelle is a dire effort from all involved: thoughtless, wholly uninspired and utterly unnecessary. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2019
2/5 16% Sex Tape (2014) Resorting to cheap sex jokes throughout, as well as being a massive advert for Apple and the iCloud, the film never really musters up the laughs or the necessary narrative drive. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 35% Goddess (2013) The music is catchy enough, but hampered by the lip-sync problems that persist throughout the dance sequences feel flat and uninventive. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 82% Road (2014) Filmed with incredible depth and zip by filmmakers Hewitt and Lavery, Road is an earnest, realistic acknowledgement of the sport, showing the impacts of the brothers' love for the sport. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) The MCU introduces a bright, brilliant light to their universe. Captain Marvel is a complete triumph, with wit, spectacle and a sense of wonder which gives the MCU's future a compelling trajectory. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 27% The Aftermath (2019) A trio of excellent performances (with Knightley standing out) save this film from an anchored and rarely inspiring narrative. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2019
2/5 7% The Big Wedding (2013) The Big Wedding becomes rather worn and flat. Still, with such a prestigious cast, it's hard to truly hate the film. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2019
3/5 37% The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013) When it hits the right notes, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a frivolous joy, with Carrey stealing the rug from under his co-stars with all the joie de vivre of his earlier comic outings. - CineVue EDIT

1/5 13% Red Dawn (2012) Red Dawn is horribly dull throughout, with no pace or vigour to its action, no purpose to its story, and no investment in its characters. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2019
1/5 5% Movie 43 (2013) What could have been a risky but ultimately successful concoction of acting talent is exactly what many had probably feared: a horrific, unfunny mess. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2019
5/5 79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) As magical and inventive as its legacy demands, this is a triumph and a joy. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2018
5/5 89% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) A joyful sequel, one of the best films of the year. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2018
5/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Better than Bourne, better even than Bond - this is the definitive spy thriller and will be remembered as one of the year's best films. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
3/5 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) A fine sequel, with the ribald ridiculousness that is to be expected with this series. Reynolds is having the time of his life, but the newcomers steal the show. - HeyUGuys EDIT

2/5 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Previously beautifully suited and booted, the sequel has fancy enough material. but wears thin as the film goes on. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
4/5 83% Patti Cake$ (2017) A tender and thoughtful comedy that proves that showcases the ones who dream and the huge determination of the human spirit. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
4/5 42% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) While it's not the most demanding or smart effort you'll ever see, you'll find it hard to find another film this year that is as entertaining as this one. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
4/5 20% The House (2017) A shimmering summer beacon of fun and frolics that will tickle the funny bone and then some. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
2/5 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) It will please the fans but it's time to give the robots a rest. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
3/5 48% Wilson (2017) There's a fascinating, incredibly funny film to be found in Wilson but the concept and conceit, while challenging and humorous in many places, loses momentum quicker than you would have hoped. - HeyUGuys EDIT

5/5 90% A Ghost Story (2017) A Ghost Story is an exquisite, thoughtful, moving and truly wonderful piece of cinema - HeyUGuys EDIT
