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

86% Moon Man (2013) There's a subtle, satirical edge... with a wonderfully crafted villain providing the film with a worthy antagonist.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 20% Enemy Lines (2020) Violent but cliched, unoriginal WWII drama. ‐ Common Sense Media

4/5 80% Who You Think I Am (Celle que vous croyez) (2020) Profound French melodrama about catfishing; sexual content. ‐ Common Sense Media

3/5 50% Four Kids and It (2020) Magical family adventure has positive messages, mild peril. ‐ Common Sense Media

4/5 95% The Shadow of Violence (2019) Gritty Irish drama doesn't shy away from violence; drug use. ‐ Common Sense Media

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

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

3/5 51% 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

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

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

3/5 88% Bernie (2012) There's something heartbreaking about this tale and its bizarre central protagonist, expertly portrayed by Black; it's just a shame that it's caught between so many layers of awkward quirkiness.‐ CineVue
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2019
4/5 95% L'ordre et la morale (Rebellion) (2008) An intelligent and slow-burning production, devised in such a way that the audience doesn't really take a side. ‐ CineVue
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
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
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
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2019
2/5 17% Parental Guidance (2012) Parental Guidance is simply not very funny, which given its attempt to incorporate constant humour, poses quite the problem.‐ CineVue
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
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2019
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

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
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2018
3/5 68% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
2/5 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The sheer absurdity is unappealing, as a film that is risible at best.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
4/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) An unrelenting thrill-ride with little respite.‐ HeyUGuys
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
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
2/5 21% Midnight Sun (2018) The film just feels so overtly cinematic, and yet not necessarily in an endearing way.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
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
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
3/5 36% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
4/5 72% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
3/5 85% Game Night (2018) Game Night succeeds where so many other films of this nature suffer: it's funny.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2018
4/5 54% Yardie (2019) He may be in the infancy of his directing career, but in Yardie Idris Elba has shown much promise.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 80% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
3/5 67% 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 24% 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 96% 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 (2018) 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 54% 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 43% 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 88% 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
4/5 80% 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 69% 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 79% 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 88% 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 21% 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 84% Heartstone (Hjartasteinn) (2017) A striking, indelible and profound debut for Gudmundsson.‐ HeyUGuys
