The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 24th 2014

The Purge Facemask

Not much to speak of in the pre-amble this week except that From Dusk Till Dawn episode 2 on Netflix continued in fine form and presented an interesting and somewhat unique version of a vampire which was actually quite scary. If you have written this off because it sounds cheap and forced (admittedly on paper […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 17th 2014

IW Oh Brother

So as promised I watched the first episode of From Dusk Till Dawn the series and….pretty damn good actually. It starts off with a scene that will come to mean more as the series wears on and which calls back to the second straight to DVD From Dusk Till Dawn sequel Hangman’s Daughter which dealt […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 3rd 2014

IW-Oscars

This week it finally happened, Lovefilm is no more, it has now been completely consumed by its Amazon overlords and is now known as Amazon Prime and something that operates totally through your Amazon account should you have one. At first this was a baffling experience, there was rumours of a lot more new content […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – February 24th 2014

IW-Jaws

A few weeks back you may have read me talking about the entertainment package that Now TV were now offering alongside movies and sport accessible through their box or online that was £4.99 a month and gave you access to shows from HBO showing in the UK through Sky Atlantic. Unless you have been in […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – February 18th 2014

Peter-Sarsgaard-and-Cate-Blanchett-in-Blue-Jasmine

Kind of a good news/bad news situation this week. Bad news for those of us who like to watch sitcoms of 30 minutes in length whilst we eat dinner during the week, Channel 4 has decided to remove most of its good content including Peep Show, The IT Crowd and Black Books from Netflix and […]



The Hey U Guys Instant Watching Guide – January 27th 2014

Crystal Fairy and the Magical Cactus

  This week’s best new releases on all the Instant Watching platforms. Spring Breakers (2013) Harmony Korine’s critical darling from last year is likely to be talked about and discussed for a good long while yet. Holding up an uncomfortable mirror to our youth, Spring Breakers works on a lot of levels not only does […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – January 6th 2014

Big Ass Spider

Man is there a lot of new content on streaming services this week. There are literally hundreds of new titles available for your viewing pleasure, I couldn’t possibly have written about all of it because I would be writing into next week! Just know that there is something there for everyone whether your bag is […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – Christmas 2013

Instant-Watching-Viewer's-Guide

So here we are in Christmas week, most of the usual streaming companies have done well for you so that you won’t be too bored post turkey when you have to tolerate the family. Apart from Now TV though, there is still a serious lack of Christmas themed films out there which is a disappointment […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – December 16th 2013

Adventure Time

Some pretty good titles this week in the build up to Christmas when Now TV will suddenly dominate the week with all the new content they got coming. The titles of note this week are as follows:  Cloud Atlas (2012) Take an unfilmable book, add the sibling directors of The Matrix and Speed Racer and the […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – November 25th 2013

Instant-Watching-Viewer's-Guide

I made my Slim Pickings joke last week and this week, I got nothing. Things are a bit better this week anyway with a nice mixture of the new, the old and the quirky independent that has gone straight to VOD. I imagine things will pick up massively into December as Now TV adds Iron […]



Something You May Have Missed: The Nines (2007)

The Nines

Screenwriter John August is perhaps best known for his work with Tim Burton on Big Fish and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as well as Go and erm…Charlies Angels. In 2007 August debuted his first directorial effort at the Sundance film festival. The Nines stars Ryan Reynolds as three different men and also features Melissa […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – November 4th 2013

Instant-Watching-Viewer's-Guide

Well it finally happened; Now TV added a superb catch up/live option for their TV channels including Sky Atlantic, Living, Fox and even UK Gold! So now for just £4.99 a month you can get shows like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Hannibal and Eastbound and Down as they happen or whenever you want. […]



Ten More Underrated Horror Movies for Halloween 2013

halloween

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

I had so much fun doing the Top Ten Underrated Horror movies list last year and it provoked such a good debate that I thought it would be good to put another ten out there for discussion. Horror is a genre which is flooded with more unseen product that any other due to the amount […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide September 16th 2013

What Richard Did

Each week we take a look at what’s new and what’s essential viewing on the various VOD and movie streaming services. This week’s theme seems to weighty and important drama although there is the best comedy from last year as well, a classic buddy cop action flick, zombie lunacy and Star Trek. Perhaps because we […]



Something You May Have Missed: James Wan’s Dead Silence and Death Sentence (2007)

Dead-Silence-Death-Sentence

I think it’s fair to say that director James Wan is having a pretty good year so far. The Conjuring has been one of the surprise hits of the year and has met with much critical praise, Insidious Chapter Two is about to be released and will likely prove a big hit at the box […]



The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 12th 2013

The Prestige

What I said last time about the summer being a fairly quiet time for the streaming world, please disregard. Rather than wait for the autumn when people are more inclined to slump on a sofa in front of the tube, Netflix, Lovefilm and a new contender have decided that everyone just loves good movies and […]



Something You May Have Missed: Adventureland (2009)

Adventureland

Director Greg Mottola made a minor splash on the 90s independent cinema scene with the film The Daytrippers in 1996. Mottola then did something rather unexpected, instead of riding the wave of this minor success into a breakout hit like Pulp Fiction or Memento he instead went straight into directing TV with credits on Arrested Development and Undeclared. […]



Revisiting Lynch – Part Six: INLAND EMPIRE, Unmade Projects and Crazy Clown Time

Revisiting-Lynch-Part-Six

In the early part of this century, Lynch spent a lot of time putting together his website David Lynch.com. Embracing the internet and the opportunities his own website afforded him, Lynch would make his own shorts available via this medium as well as the weird sitcom Rabbits and animated series Dumbland.  Lynch also branched out […]



Revisiting Lynch – Part Five: Going STRAIGHT to MULHOLLAND DRIVE

Revisiting-Lynch-Part-Five-

For his next trick David Lynch changed tack and shifted gears completely to tell the true story of Alvin Straight, a man who travelled across America to visit his estranged and ailing brother…on a lawnmower. The film was made independently based on a screenplay from Lynch’s frequent collaborator Mary Sweeney and even filmed chronologically along […]



Revisiting Lynch – Part Three: American Surrealism Goes Mainstream with Twin Peaks and Wild At Heart

Twin-Peaks

Perhaps the thing that David Lynch is best known for in the mainstream is the television series Twin Peaks which ran from summer 1990 until spring 1991. When it debuted the series was huge, I mean huge. It infected all areas of popular culture and was like the Lost of its day with people hotly […]



Revisiting Lynch – Part Two: The Lows of Dune and the Highs of Blue Velvet

revisiting-lynch-part-two-banner

Thanks to the critical success of The Elephant Man, Lynch hoped next to get his long gestating Ronnie Rocket off the launch pad. Sadly due to the near collapse of American Zoetrope, Francis Ford Coppola’s production outfit, the project was shelved. Lynch then next had the opportunity to direct Return of the Jedi but famously […]
