Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 91% Heartstone (Hjartasteinn) (2017) A striking, indelible and profound debut for Gudmundsson.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 39% Justice League (2017) A film that feels so contrived, vying desperately to inject a sense of effervescence, and yet feels so forced and tedious when doing so.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 89% Only the Brave (2017) This Joseph Kosinski endeavour has been masterfully structured, as we seamlessly move between different, entwined character stories.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) A deliciously kitsch affair, and affectionately so - with perhaps the only criticism in that department being that it doesn't play up to its absurdity quite enough.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 78% The Final Year (2017) A poignant, profound feature, that has an overwhelming sense of futility prevalent throughout.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 No Score Yet Gauguin - Voyage de Tahiti (2017) A fascinating period in Gauguin's life to explore, and couple that with the remarkable lead performance by Cassel, and you're left with a biopic that's most definitely worth catching.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 No Score Yet De plus belle (2017) A sweet, uncynical endeavour that celebrates the person within.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 14% Geostorm (2017) It's exactly what you'd expect it to be - ridiculous, and enjoyable in its own way. The usual impressive set pieces can't save this sinking ship. ‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 83% Marshall (2017) Overtly cinematic, but given the fact so much takes in the courtroom - an area ingrained into the fabric of classic, cinematic storytelling, it gives the director a licence of sorts, and the approach becomes endearing, even if not entirely authentic.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 100% Nico, 1988 (2017) The unique narrative structure may deter some, but the performance by Dyrholm will have everybody on side.‐ HeyUGuys

1/5 8% The Snowman (2017) Given the calibre of those behind this picture, it's impossible not expect a film that transcends expectations, to subvert the formula rather than abide so frustratingly by it.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
3/5 71% Small Town Crime (2017) Though the character's frustrating arc may deter viewers, the one consistent is the wonderful performance by Hawkes, who brings Mike Kendall to life in emphatic fashion.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
3/5 83% Thoroughbreds (2018) A unique, resourceful thriller that seems compelled to never quite go the way you expect it to.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
4/5 74% Spoor (Pokot) (2017) Partly what makes Spoor so easy to enjoy and invest in is the character of Janini, brought to life in emphatic fashion by the wonderful Mandat-Grabka.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 80% Loving Vincent (2017) Taking seven years to complete, this labour of love makes for a rewarding experience for viewer, for it's an indelible visual experience.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2017
3/5 64% Happy End (2017) There is plenty to be admired about Happy End, with a collection of strong performances by an impressive ensemble - but it's just lacking that something special.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2017
3/5 89% The Ornithologist (O ornitólogo) (2017) The lack of linearity and palpable narrative structure could alienate some viewers, but there's a mystic wonderment to the way this tale has been depicted.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2017
3/5 64% 6 Days (2017) Right off the bat the viewer is placed in the exact same situation the police and hostages were at the time, setting the precedence for an immersive, if somewhat generic action thriller.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2017
4/5 50% The Glass Castle (2017) Naturally Larson is terrific in the lead role, but she is matched at every turn by Harrelson, who carries the film's tricky tone on his shoulders in a way that only he knows how.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2017
2/5 No Score Yet The Marker (2017) Despite the compelling opening act, The Marker loses its way spectacularly, becoming so overtly dramatic, and needlessly so.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
3/5 100% Daphne (2017) If you are going to have a film which studies its lead in such an intimate manner, having an actress as accomplished as Beecham involved helps matters immeasurably, as she turns in a fine performance.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2017
2/5 31% Home Again (2017) A horribly mawkish affair, lacking quite remarkably in any sense of self-awareness.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2017
3/5 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) There is a myriad of themes at play here, and Curtis must be commended for his fine job of balancing them all.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2017
3/5 83% Darkest Hour (2017) When presenting a biopic of such a famed figure, you hope to leave having learnt something new about them, and yet here we seem to be treading over familiar ground, albeit in a rather entertaining way.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
3/5 42% The Mountain Between Us (2017) The Mountain Between Us is a mediocre film that has been elevated by two very good actors signing on to the project.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
3/5 65% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
2/5 67% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
3/5 55% The Unicorn Store (2017) Brie Larson marks her debut endeavour from behind the lens with the enchanting, charming comedy.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
4/5 95% First Reformed (2017) A truly captivating, pertinent piece of cinema.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
3/5 84% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
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 92% On Body and Soul (A Teströl és Lélekröl) (2017) A visceral, evocative drama makes for a unique cinematic experience.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
5/5 94% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
4/5 82% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
5/5 92% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) A generic film befitting of its terribly generic title.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
3/5 66% 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 88% Kills on Wheels (Tiszta szívvel) (2017) 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 75% 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 33% 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 68% 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 65% 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 50% 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 43% 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 29% 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
