Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) An unrelenting thrill-ride with little respite.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 52% Rampage (2018) There is always a place for vacuous, throwaway entertainment of this nature, but Johnson has outgrown endeavours of this mediocre quality.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 17% Midnight Sun (2018) The film just feels so overtly cinematic, and yet not necessarily in an endearing way.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) By removing the sound, it makes it even more prominent, for when things go bump in the night, boy can we hear it.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 35% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) Sadly the film's long-winded title is emblematic of a rather convoluted endeavour, albeit entertaining.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) It's a tale gloriously steeped in nostalgia, and marks an ambitious undertaking for Spielberg, but it simply couldn't have been left in more reliable hands.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 82% Game Night (2018) Game Night succeeds where so many other films of this nature suffer: it's funny.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 38% Yardie (2018) He may be in the infancy of his directing career, but in Yardie Idris Elba has shown much promise.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 79% Unsane (2018) It's been shot on an iPhone, and it looks like it's been shot on an iPhone - and that, sadly, isn't a compliment.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 80% Damsel (2018) Mia Wasikowska and Robert Pattinson are seemingly having a lot of fun on this project, and in turn, so are we.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2018
3/5 25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Given the narrative here, 7 Days in Entebbe should be more suspenseful than it is, lacking in that same degree of intensity that came with Argo, as the film, much like the hijacker's endeavour, does get somewhat tedious the longer it goes on.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2018
4/5 90% I, Tonya (2018) A film that offers so much more than just 'the incident'.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2018
4/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Gerwig may well have just directed a film better than any one she's starred in - and her back catalogue is hardly poor.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2018
4/5 97% Black Panther (2018) An ineffably adventurous, vibrant and compelling production. It's a blockbuster that is saying something, and believe me Marvel, we're listening.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
4/5 74% The Mercy (2017) A truly compelling character study of this one man, with an emotional impact that is sure to linger long after the final credits roll.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
4/5 52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) The film survives off the back of a remarkable lead display by Washington, who brings such a muted stillness to the role at hand, and so much nuance.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2018
3/5 42% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) Released at a time when as a society we seem more inclined to be building walls as opposed to breaking them down, this injects a greater deal of profundity to a narrative that gives the power to the disenfranchised.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2018
4/5 87% The Post (2018) Naturally, and unsurprisingly, Hanks and Streep are at the very top of their game, and the film benefits greatly as a result..‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2018
3/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) A film that is playful in its approach, and commits solely to the notion of fun and entertainment.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
4/5 78% All the Money in the World (2017) A quite remarkable story being told by one of the industry's most reliable, and resourceful storytellers.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
2/5 63% Shot Caller (2017) While the set-up is great, it's the pay-off that lets this title down, growing somewhat convoluted as we progress, and moving too far away from the endearing simplicity that helped to set the scene.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2017
3/5 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) While undoubtedly flawed, The Man Who Invited Christmas cannot be accused of being dour, it's an irreverent, festive endeavour that thrives in being over the top and unashamedly entertaining.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
3/5 86% Brakes (2016) While the resourceful nature of Grower is commendable, it's a film, much like the relationships it depicts, that lacks that something special.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2017
3/5 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) It's no doubt an entertaining premise, it's more the execution here that's in question.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2017
4/5 85% Heartstone (Hjartasteinn) (2017) A striking, indelible and profound debut for Gudmundsson.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
2/5 40% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
3/5 87% Only the Brave (2017) This Joseph Kosinski endeavour has been masterfully structured, as we seamlessly move between different, entwined character stories.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
3/5 57% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
4/5 84% The Final Year (2018) A poignant, profound feature, that has an overwhelming sense of futility prevalent throughout.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2017
3/5 40% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2017
3/5 83% Ladies (De plus belle) (2017) A sweet, uncynical endeavour that celebrates the person within.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2017
2/5 12% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
3/5 100% Nico, 1988 (2018) The unique narrative structure may deter some, but the performance by Dyrholm will have everybody on side.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
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 77% Small Town Crime (2018) 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 86% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
3/5 84% 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 68% 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 90% 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 61% 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 32% 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 85% 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 40% 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 51% 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
