3/5 68% Downsizing (2017) Payne has just strived to accomplish a little too much, and perhaps like his characters, he needs to think just a little smaller.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 No Score Yet The Escape (2017) It's the subtlety and nuance to this film which makes it such a compelling feature.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 70% Hostiles (2017) Hostiles is overbearing in its bleakness & while there can be a cinematic beauty to such barbarity & profundity to the pain, this struggles to be stirring & poignant, leaving just this sense of desolation which is almost suffocating to the viewer.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 44% The Unicorn Store (2017) Brie Larson marks her debut endeavour from behind the lens with the enchanting, charming comedy.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 No Score Yet Eye on Juliet (2017) When vying for profundity, it's accidentally funny. When striving to be romantic, it's accidentally funny. In fact, it's a rather unfortunate comedic endeavour, that just doesn't work.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 94% First Reformed (2017) A truly captivating, pertinent piece of cinema.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 88% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Dayton and Faris do an impressive job in balancing the protagonist's complex love life with the sporting event at the core of the movie, which inspires another fine display from Stone.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 40% You Disappear (Du forsvinder) (2017) An intellectual courtroom drama, that somehow manages to study neuroscience in a way that is accessible and entertaining.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
4/5 94% On Body and Soul (A Teströl és Lélekröl) (2017) A visceral, evocative drama makes for a unique cinematic experience.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 No Score Yet If You Saw His Heart (Si tu voyais son coeur) (2017) Chemla's stylistic endeavour is presented through a unique narrative structure, told in an intriguing, if somewhat convoluted and fragmented way.‐ HeyUGuys

5/5 97% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Where this brilliant production thrives most predominantly, is in the striking combination of comedy and drama, which has been seamlessly woven together.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 85% Brad's Status (2017) An entertaining, thought-provoking drama that continues to highlight Mike White as one of the intriguing voices in modern cinema.‐ HeyUGuys

5/5 100% Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017) After watching this excellent piece of cinema, you'll never watch Wedding Crashers in the same way again.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) A generic film befitting of its terribly generic title.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
3/5 71% Breathe (2017) A mainstream endeavour that is both uncynical and well-intentioned, so there's no issues here with its distinct accessibility.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2017
4/5 92% Kills on Wheels (Tiszta szívvel) (2016) A frenetic feature that is such a hybrid of cinematic styles, blended with a deft execution.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2017
4/5 80% Dark River (2017) While perhaps the bleak nature of the narrative is somewhat overbearing, and predictable in parts, as you can foresee the tragic elements of the story - it doesn't mean this isn't worthwhile cinema, for it's been presented in such a beautiful way.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
2/5 No Score Yet 1% (2017) McCallum's film, while stylistically impressive, giving off a real feel for the environment we're inhabiting - falls for so many trappings of the genre at hand.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
3/5 67% mother! (2017) An unbearably taut, disquieting piece of cinema, that is visceral and immersive in its execution.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
3/5 67% Victoria & Abdul (2017) A real life story given the Stephen Frears treatment in this predictably congenial British drama.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
2/5 56% The Leisure Seeker (2018) It feels like there is the potential here for a really congenial piece of cinema, and yet it just persists in letting you down.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
3/5 97% Mudbound (2017) A unique means of exploring prejudice, chronicling the journey of a man who helped to defeat a fascist dictator, only to then be subject to hatred from his own compatriots.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2017
3/5 85% It (2017) An entertaining, and genuinely quite terrifying horror; a difficult balance to get right.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2017
2/5 42% Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) It's a flawed feature, and many, if not most of the jokes don't land, which is somewhat detrimental given the fact this is a comedy.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
2/5 22% The Vault (2017) Bush plays his cards far too early into proceedings, instantly stripping the film of suspense, turning it into your archetypal survival flick.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2017
1/5 0% Stratton (2017) Stratton doesn't work for many reasons, and while Cooper is a talented actor, he struggles here to pull off the action hero protagonist.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2017
3/5 63% Back to Burgundy (Ce qui nous lie) (2017) Easy to get along with for the most part, complete with a genial tone as we balance comedy and pathos successfully.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2017
4/5 93% Logan Lucky (2017) Soderbergh, back from a self-inflicted hiatus, is the perfect man to bring this Rebecca Blunt screenplay to life, utilising his experience in this sub-genre to triumphant effect.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2017
4/5 88% American Made (2017) It's refreshing to see Tom Cruise return to a more character driven piece, playing Barry Seal in Doug Liman's unashamedly entertaining drama American Made.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
4/5 82% Detroit (2017) A film that will leave you feeling empty, cold and angry, tinged with a sadness that derives from the staggering pertinence of the themes explored - and while that doesn't exactly sound appealing, this is essential viewing.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2017
3/5 56% The Odyssey (L'odyssée) (2016) Much like great explorer himself, this film is not without its flaws, but it remains a masterclass in storytelling for Salle, balancing a whole myriad of themes in an exquisite manner.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2017
2/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) There is room for serious, dour blockbusters of this nature, and the narrative here is hardly befitting of being a vehicle for comedy - but this title is distinctly humourless, and suffers as a result.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2017
2/5 10% The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (2017) While preaching a positive message, it's been presented in an all too formulaic manner, as a film that abides, albeit affectionately, to the tropes and beats of the genre in a jarring fashion.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
3/5 68% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Things go bump in the night, they don't beep. It's taking the tropes of the genre back to these basics which allows for such engaging cinema to transpire.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 75% Atomic Blonde (2017) Leitch imbues a stylistic fervour in Atomic Blonde; a picture illuminated by its indelible neon glow, portraying the city of Berlin in an affectionate, striking light - and yet the film never compromises on its commitment to brutality.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2017
2/5 50% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) It's a film that very much works on a surface level - stylistic, vibrant and vivacious from a visual perspective, but when digging deeper there's really little substance.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2017
3/5 67% The Wall (2017) The Wall is one of those pictures that doesn't have an awful lot wrong with it, it just seems to be lacking in any real sense of purpose, or tangible point.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
5/5 93% Dunkirk (2017) Dunkirk is just a masterclass in the art of storytelling, with a variety of different characters, in different places, fighting their own different battles, all intertwined as we progress, without any sense of contrivance.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2017
3/5 66% Tommy's Honour (2017) There's a muted, powerfully dramatic core to this piece, as a film that thrives as much in the sub-text as it does so in the dialogue, with tradition the beating heart.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2017
4/5 89% It Comes At Night (2017) It Comes at Night is a masterclass in suspense building, it's a film all about the notion of trust, and is so intense, and uncompromising with it.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2017
4/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Spidey is finally able to bounce off other familiar faces, and the results are nothing short of a triumph.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
3/5 81% Risk (2017) With so much covered in the final quarter of an hour, it's hard, in spite of the film's shortcomings, not to want a follow-up.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
3/5 98% Kedi (2017) We profile and explore Istanbul, it's culture, heritage and its people - all through the eyes of one of its most curious inhabitants; the cat.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2017
2/5 17% All Eyez on Me (2017) But to have an incredible story, and a superb soundtrack to boot, does not automatically give the film a free pass, as those two things were already in place. It's more about how you tell the story - and it's here the film suffers.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2017
1/5 22% The Book of Henry (2017) The Book of Henry is almost beguiling in its awfulness, it's compelling. This is not a bad film because nothing happens, it's a bad film because too many things do.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
3/5 73% Souvenir (2016) The film could well be a rather average one had it not been for the nuance provided by the irrepressible Huppert.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2017
3/5 43% Hampstead (2017) Hampstead has its charming moments, certainly, but ultimately frustrates as it abides so stringently to the tropes of the genre at hand.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2017
3/5 73% Ballerina (2016) As we progress the unwavering enthusiasm of the lead role becomes somewhat infectious, and as she grows on us, in turn so does the movie.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
3/5 62% Slack Bay (Ma loute) (2017) The absurd, off-the-wall approach serves this tale well, and allows Dumont much licence to do whatever he pleases.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
3/5 44% Rock Dog (2017) Rock Dog is an easy to indulge in production that is somewhat formulaic, but comforting in its execution.‐ HeyUGuys
