Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
93% Logan Lucky (2017) Logan Lucky is emblematic of the classic 1980s Hollywood blockbuster: it is great fun while it lasts, but you will forget it soon after.‐ Scroll.in

40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Samuel Jackson as hitman Darius Kincaid and Ryan Reynolds as his protector, Michael Bryce, turn in hugely enjoyable performances to elevate the run-of-the-mill material.‐ Scroll.in

73% Berlin Syndrome (2017) In the hands of a less capable director, the movie could have easily devolved into a cliched take on well-worn material. Instead, Shortland's direction ensures an effective genre film.‐ Scroll.in

92% Dunkirk (2017) Deploying his mastery over filmmaking technology, Nolan has made World War II look fresh and exciting by focusing not on the action sequences as much as the desperate struggle for survival.‐ Scroll.in

93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Andy Serkis's superb performance and Matt Reeves's heartfelt direction means that for once, humans will root against their own species.‐ Scroll.in

93% Baby Driver (2017) A pure visceral joy is written into the film's many set pieces, which have been shot without too many special effects and rolled out at breakneck speed.‐ Scroll.in

60% Despicable Me 3 (2017) The film is chockfull of colourful and hugely enjoyable sight gags. The key element missing from what is unlikely to be the final part in the multi-billion dollar franchise is an emotional core.‐ Scroll.in

87% The Lost City of Z (2017) Gray and Khondji remain ceaseless in their commitment to a kind of classical visual storytelling that Hollywood rarely delivers on these days.‐ Scroll.in

75% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) Ritesh Batra's adaptation, based on a screenplay by British playwright Nick Payne, unfolds like a mystery. There isn't a crime scene to investigate, but rather the detritus of fading memories.‐ Scroll.in

29% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) At its best, Ritchie's style passes for watchable flash. At its worst, it is King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.‐ Scroll.in

67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) When the action falters, like it does in the final sequence along a frozen water body in Russia, the camaraderie between the characters and goofy one-liners sustain the narrative.‐ Scroll.in

45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Like Major, the film is unable to decide about what it really wants to be.‐ Scroll.in

80% Colossal (2017) Colossal fails where [Vigalondo's] previous films succeeded, particularly in its over-stretched final act.‐ Scroll.in

96% The Salesman (Forushande) (2017) Farhadi's films are suffused with an oppressive atmosphere, and there is something increasingly formulaic in his storytelling.‐ Scroll.in

67% Life (2017) A film that does not offer too many surprises but is an enjoyable entry in the genre.‐ Scroll.in

93% Logan (2017) If the previous films focussed on Wolverine's superior healing abilities and fighting skills, Mangold has finally cracked the code with the third film -- it's the humane side of Wolverine/Logan that was always the most interesting thing about him.‐ Scroll.in

74% Split (2017) There are scenes of true horror and gore to be worth the price of admission.‐ Scroll.in

89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) The real star of the film remains Reeves's face, which becomes bloodied and riddled with cuts and yet remains completely imperceptible. It suggests a rich inner life and aids the plot's philosophical pretensions.‐ Scroll.in

91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) The plot is wafer-thin but the jokes fly thick and fast.‐ Scroll.in
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
16% The Space Between Us (2017) The space part of the title barely works. But at least the between us moments do.‐ Scroll.in

83% The Founder (2017) The fast food culture that McDonald's has come to embody remains off the menu throughout The Founder.‐ Scroll.in

30% Passengers (2016) The questionable decision to turn what is essentially a kidnapping into a romance without debating the consequences doesn't allow us to fully sink our teeth into the tale.‐ Scroll.in

17% Assassin's Creed (2016) While Justin Kurzel's Assassin's Creed... does not undo all the damage of films such as Super Mario and House of the Dead, it is one of the better films out there as far video game adaptations go.‐ Scroll.in

73% Sing (2016) Sing lacks discernible personality, but it's light and colourful, has a few jokes and a plethora of singing and dancing animals. You'll forget it soon after you leave the cinema, but it passes the time just fine.‐ Scroll.in

85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) These disparate elements do not come together to make a cohesive whole. At times, Rogue One feels like a rehash of previous Star Wars films, only with newer faces.‐ Scroll.in

92% La La Land (2016) [Chazelle] is able to maintain enough distance from his influences to infuse the story with touches of realism that ground it while at the same time maintaining a sense of playful whimsy that made its forebears so successful.‐ Scroll.in

96% Moana (2016) When you have a riveting action sequence that seems straight out of Mad Max: Fury Road as well as a tribute to deceased music legend David Bowie, the stage is set for a Disney film that will be out of the ordinary.‐ Scroll.in

74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Rowling creates an incredibly immersive world that unfolds at a leisurely pace but is never boring because it does not get bogged down by the weight of audience expectations created by adaptations of the Potter books.‐ Scroll.in

89% Doctor Strange (2016) The filmmaking isn't bold enough to fully revel in the strangeness of the source material.‐ Scroll.in

95% Train to Busan (Busanhaeng) (2016) Since almost all of Train to Busan takes place inside railway compartments, comparisons to South Korean auteur Bong Joon Ho's English language debut Snowpiercer are inevitable. That is where Train to Busan comes up short.‐ Scroll.in

63% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) It has a sufficient amount of genre pleasures, with gorgeously detailed locations and scary monsters, but the narrative is confused, at times impersonal, and does not justify its 127-minute running time.‐ Scroll.in
