Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 89% Dangal (2016) This feel-good sports drama based on true stories entertains and, more importantly, could empower young women to pursue male-dominated industries.‐ South China Morning Post

3.5/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Gadot was mostly one-dimensional and stoic in her 20 minutes of screen time in Batman v Superman, but here she is lively and exudes a sense of wonder.‐ South China Morning Post

4/5 94% Neruda (2016) Pablo Larrain's story of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda is shot with a lush, rich colour palette and evokes a sense of humour that is usually missing in films of this ilk.‐ South China Morning Post

3/5 No Score Yet One Week Friends (Isshûkan Friends) (2017) The characters are so earnest, and the leads so cute, that you'd have to be a cynic with a heart of stone to not be swayed.‐ South China Morning Post

3.5/5 99% Get Out (2017) To audiences [outside the US] who may not understand - or care - about the satire, Get Out is still a decent horror film.‐ South China Morning Post

3.5/5 89% The Teacher (Ucitelka) (2017) This is a witty little gem that may make the Oscar's foreign-language shortlist again.‐ South China Morning Post

3.5/5 98% In This Corner of the World (Kono sekai no katasumi ni) (2017) If there's a message to this film, it's the often unrecognised forbearance and perseverance of women, and the idea that unlike men, they can put love over pride and nationalism.‐ South China Morning Post

3/5 44% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) The entire third act is typical Hollywood CGI-monster fest, but the first two are surprisingly human - and good.‐ South China Morning Post

4.5/5 98% Moonlight (2016) Director Barry Jenkins has made known publicly his admiration of Wong Kar-wai, and Moonlight is reminiscent of the Hong Kong auteur's work in both cinematography and feel.‐ South China Morning Post

3.5/5 75% Miss Sloane (2016) Miss Sloane is a highly gripping drama with a tour-de-force lead performance.‐ South China Morning Post

2/5 No Score Yet Scoop! (2016) Scoop! has a major narrative problem that should disgust every woman in the audience: [the hero is] a vulgar Trump type who's constantly making lewd comments to female colleagues.‐ South China Morning Post

4.5/5 92% La La Land (2016) La La Land is cinematic magic in its purest form.‐ South China Morning Post

1.5/5 No Score Yet 10,000 Miles (2016) 10,000 Miles' script is so flooded with [clichés] it derails what is otherwise a gorgeously shot film with plenty of picturesque locations and strong performances.‐ South China Morning Post

3/5 40% Why Him? (2016) Franco and Cranston are a charming odd couple who are more than capable of carrying this silly little film.‐ South China Morning Post

2/5 58% Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life (2016) A middle-of-the-pack family comedy that is neither laugh-out-loud funny nor deep enough to generate real emotional resonance.‐ South China Morning Post

2.5/5 25% Suicide Squad (2016) This movie is tripped up by a jumbled narrative and corporate machination: Warner Bros. is desperately chasing the highly successful Marvel film universe, and the only way to get there is to rush.‐ South China Morning Post

2.5/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Following two excellent entries, this third prequel sets out to deliver a grandiose adventure with a cataclysmic dramatic reckoning, but mostly falls flat.‐ South China Morning Post

3/5 93% The Mermaid (Mei ren yu) (2016) Mermaid is a solid dramedy with heart and, more importantly, a message.‐ South China Morning Post

2/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) As a superhero flick, it's shockingly joyless and overlong, with the two iconic crimefighters presented as angry, cranky, easily manipulated men in tights.‐ South China Morning Post
