The HeyUGuys Summer Preview – Edge of Tomorrow

Summer-Preview-Edge-of-Tomorrow

In the past few years, time loop movies have been making a slight comeback in mainstream Hollywood. The genre is one rarely ventured into, with good reason, but the quality we’ve seen recently has been spectacular. So with baited breath, and fingers cross, I am wholeheartedly looking forward to Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow this […]



The Unsung Heroes of Star Wars

ralph mcquarrie

With Episode VII around the corner, and the production to the Original Trilogy (less so the Prequels) spun into filmmaking folklore, Star Wars has never been more potent in popular culture. While the world waits on the official appointment of Messrs. Hamill, Fisher and Ford to complete the proverbial circle there are many others whose […]

Earlier today, we were treated to the superb final trailer for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. The footage contained plenty of noteworthy and intriguing moments, and we’ve managed to narrow them down to a list of just ten for you to browse through.

As Spider-Man swings into his fifth major motion picture appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we thought it would be appropriate to also take a look back on some of the not so “Spectacular” moments from the last four movies ahead of what promises to be a sequel packed full of great ones (if you […]



The HeyUGuys Summer Preview – Transformers: Age of Extinction

Summer-Preview-Transformers-Age-of-Extinction

When it was originally announced that critical pariah Michael Bay was to be directing the big screen incarnation of the nostalgically popular 1980’s vehicular metamorphoses toys The Transformers, it seemed to be the perfect match of artistic vision and material. With large scale auto-centric set-pieces already scattered throughout his CV, recall the spectacular freeway chase […]



Five Films at Sundance London You Should See

Sundance Dinosaur 13

HeyUGuys On Set: Witnessing the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (3)

Post-Katrina New Orleans, Louisiana seems like a perfect place to shoot a film in which the human population has been largely irradicated. There are pockets in and around that city where entire towns have become  completely vacant. Nature has taken back control of areas that once hummed with life. It would seem to be the […]

Spider-Man Swing

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will mark the iconic Marvel superhero’s fifth major solo movie following Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy and 2012′s reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man. Across the course of these four movies, there have been a lot of “Sensational” and “Spectacular” moments for Spider-Man, thrilling both old and new fans alike. For some, Spider-Man was […]

As one of America’s most revered young actresses around today, Emma Stone has produced many worthy performances throughout her impressive career.

A Sinister Six Unanswered Questions The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Must Address

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Man in Fedora

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6

Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-man met something of a lukewarm reception upon its release in 2012. Not only did it have to impress in its own right, but the film had to justify Sony’s decision to reboot the Spider-man universe so soon after Sam Raimi’s last film. Many viewers felt that the film failed to […]



10 of the Worst Superhero Movie Directors

Bryan Singer 2

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Even as we enter what seems to be the golden age of the superhero movie, there are still more bad comic book movies than good ones when looking over a list of what’s been released in the past 30 years or so. Why? Well, some may blame a poor choice of actor and others may […]



Six of the Best: Laura Linney

Laura Linney - The Big C

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6

It can’t be easy as a  working actress in Hollywood where, save a few notable exceptions, women are pigeonholed into convenient, one-dimensional archetypes – virgin, vixen, vessel, victim, villain – eventually condemned to onscreen marriages and partnerships with men two decades their senior and then flung into an oubliette when they themselves have the temerity […]



The Greatest Hammer Scares

HAmmer Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969)

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6

To mark the release of Hammer’s The Quiet Ones (in cinemas now – our review here) we look at some of Hammer Films’ greatest scary moments! That Hammer’s power to shock has diminished over the years is no surprise. An ever-increasing permissiveness and escalating developments in special effects mean that films so terrifying that they […]



Six Of The Best – Martial Arts Fight Scenes

The Raid 2

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6

The Raid absolutely tore it up on its release in 2011, with many a jaded film critic blown away by its visceral approach, its inventiveness and in particular (given how well-worn the genre is) its freshness. The Raid 2 is picking up a lot of really positive buzz from Sundance and the two trailers to […]

Killers

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Hammer release their latest film tomorrow and though we’re a long way from the dread sight of Christopher Lee’s blood-red eyes staring into our soul there is a tangible sense of anticipation for each new release. The Quiet Ones, which is included on this list, may not leap out at you as a must-see but […]



View from the Bottom Shelf – Six Unheralded Straight to Video Martial Arts Masterpieces

JCVD

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6

Reading Chris Holt’s recent excellent feature on the death of the local video store, (as well as this week’s release of Gareth Evans’ The Raid 2) I got to thinking about my own experiences of traipsing along to my local video store in search of something obscure but exciting. During my mid to late teens […]



How Hammer Got Its Scare Back

Daniel Radcliffe in The Woman in Black

It has been dismissed over the years as cheesy, cheap and laughable but, as has been the case on many occasions, Hammer Films have had the last laugh. They boast a back-catalogue that is to horror movies what The Rolling Stones’ discography is to rock music. Fifty-nine years after the release of their first horror […]

To celebrate the UK release of Divergent, it seems appropriate to rank the defining characters within the YA (Young Adult) movie sub-genre as audiences gear up to meet more new teenage faces. With their relentless popularity and financial success, it seems everyone in Hollywood is keen to jump on the bandwagon and adapt a beloved […]



Goonies Never Say Sequel! Why we Don’t Need The Goonies 2

The Goonies 1

You only have to look at the name of this very site to see what The Goonies means to us. To Dave and I it was cinematic shorthand for a sense of magic and wonder experienced at a young age, a feeling we’ve not shaken and one which is compounded with each trip to the […]
