4/5 80% Trick or Treat (2019) Seek this film out, and if you do, be sure to watch it again - as there are so many small little moments that require repeat viewings to fully comprehend. - HeyUGuys EDIT

Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2020
3/5 62% Ender's Game (2013) It struggles to stand out from the blockbuster field, too reverential to the genre at hand and seemingly unwilling to take any real risks. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 4, 2019
4/5 88% For Those In Peril (2014) For Those in Peril isn't afraid to take risks and is full of ingenuity, but at its core is an emotive piece about overcoming a death in the family. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 52% Thérèse (2013) Despite being a rigidly formulaic period drama, its French sensibilities and whimsical edge are apparent, ensuring a film that will no doubt intrigue and compel its target audience. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2019
2/5 54% The Company You Keep (2013) The supporting characters are quite insubstantial -- little more than cameo roles, cheapening the credentials of this cast somewhat, while resulting in a lack of emotional investment in the tale or the characters. The feature feels contrived, too. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2019
3/5 85% Wu xia (Dragon) (2012) This is no pastiche, and not as exemplary of the wuxia genre... Instead this feels as though Chan is doing something different, and isn't attempting to appeal to a US market quite so much, avoiding the patent conventions of the genre. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2019

Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2019
3/5 94% Good Vibrations (2012) D'Sa and Leyburn's good-natured drama is a heartwarmer for sure, managing to capture the essence and spirit of a memorable moment in music history with the minimum of contrivance. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2019
3/5 48% Welcome to the Punch (2013) A cinematic love letter to contemporary London, truly capturing the enchanting nature of the capital at night. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
4/5 91% Sleep Tight (2012) A must-see psychological thriller. Balagueró has succeeded in constructing a hugely compelling narrative that has you completely transfixed from start to finish. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
2/5 18% Parental Guidance (2012) Parental Guidance is simply not very funny, which given its attempt to incorporate constant humour, poses quite the problem. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2019
4/5 85% Boxing Day (2012) [Director Bernard] Rose does a wonderful job in putting you in the protagonists' shoes, in what is a pensive, slow-burning production, as the audience are taken on this long and arduous trip. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 66% The Campaign (2012) These situations write themselves really, already amusing in real-life, let alone cinematically... It's harmless and undemanding fun. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2019
60% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) While flawed, much like the band's music, this is a film that is very easy to sit back and enjoy, even if you can appreciate that, at times, it's not particularly very good. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2018
3/5 69% Ocean's 8 (2018) When treating this as a standalone movie (and it should be seen on such terms) there is plenty to appreciate. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
2/5 47% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The sheer absurdity is unappealing, as a film that is risible at best. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
4/5 69% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) An unrelenting thrill-ride with little respite. - HeyUGuys EDIT
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
2/5 51% Rampage (2018) There is always a place for vacuous, throwaway entertainment of this nature, but Johnson has outgrown endeavours of this mediocre quality. - HeyUGuys EDIT
