Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 67% Ocean's 8 (2018) This is meant to be a kind of turning-point film. It isn't. It offers nothing new, other than the gender of the ensemble star cast.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 90% Hereditary (2018) An astonishing performance by Collette as the unhinged parent elevates the scarily nuanced narrative into a league of its own. Hereditary is an emotionally wrenching viewing experience.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) A two-hour roller-coaster trip, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is worth a ride.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 53% Book Club (2018) Despite the earnest efforts of its iconic ensemble cast, Book Club is unimpressive.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) With a fine balance of action and humour, the film leaves one yearning for more from the epic sci-fi saga.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deliriously over-the-top from start to finish, the follow-up may not be as novel as its predecessor, but there's no denying that Deadpool 2 is hugely entertaining.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 No Score Yet Mahanati (2018) In the grand scheme of things, Mahanati is a story that needed to be said and it found a beautiful voice through director Nag Ashwin and actor Keerthy Suresh.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 56% Monster Hunt 2 (Zhuo Yao Ji 2) (2018) Monster Hunt 2 is sillier and even more cloying than the 2015 original.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Infinity War is a treat, and a welcome addition to the now-decade-old Avengers series. Already, we can't wait for the next one.‐ Hindustan Times

0/5 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Precious little craft or care is involved, and even less logic. Subtlety is clearly not director Jeff Wadlow's strong suit.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 62% Peter Rabbit (2018) The wee ones might relate to the rabbit shenanigans, but overall, Peter Rabbit falls short.‐ Hindustan Times

0/5 17% Midnight Sun (2018) One is forced to suppress actual groans.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
4.5/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) A genuinely shuddersome horror-thriller, A Quiet Place establishes actor-turned-director John Krasinski as one of the leading new exponents of the genre.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) The good news is, it's Steven Spielberg. The not-so-good news: The Spielberg sci-fi magic is missing in this adaptation of Ernest Cline's young-adult novel...all in all, Spielberg would do well to return to the real world.‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) Without a trace of sentimentality, it chronicles the carefree innocence of childhood even as the children intuit that there are no easy answers to the problems they face.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) All in all, a turbulent ride to a known destination.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2018
3.5/5 84% The Square (2017) The Square is recommended viewing but only for the truly eclectic.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
0.5/5 45% The Hurricane Heist (2018) The script is stodgy, the effects absurd. Saddled with shootouts, explosions, and stormy devastation, the film does little more than place cartoonish stereotypes in perilous situations.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2018
1/5 48% Tomb Raider (2018) The ensuing race-against-the-clock narrative is crammed with chases, stunts and cheesy effects, and totally devoid of intensity.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2018
5/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Lady Bird is one of the most affecting coming-of-age movies in recent memory.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
1.5/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) The rest of the long-winded, twisty-turny narrative doesn't make a lick of sense. In place of tension or suspense, you have an amoral cat-and-mouse game played across several swish locations.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
1/5 18% Death Wish (2018) Rather than acting as social commentary, the remake merely exploits the overarching theme of crime and punishment to unleash more violence and death.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
5/5 97% The Hurt Locker (2009) Satisfying from the first frame to the last, The Hurt Locker ranks among the most accomplished contemporary war films.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2018
2/5 83% Game Night (2018) Car chases, shootouts and film references abound. In other words, there's scarcely anything original about the outlandish caper.‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Martin McDonagh is undisputedly one of the finest scriptwriters in contemporary cinema. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
5/5 95% Boy and the World (O Menino e o Mundo) (2015) This wordless animated gem has finally made it to our shores, four years after its release internationally, and boy has it been worth the wait.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
1/5 41% Den of Thieves (2018) A shoddy riff on Michael Mann's Heat, this misbegotten mess doesn't even bother to acknowledge the 1995 crime classic.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2018
1.5/5 41% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) The final chapter in the trilogy is poorly written, predictable, devoid of suspense.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2018
4/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Day-Lewis burrows into his role with characteristic intensity. Manville is spot-on as the stern but sympathetic sibling. The accomplished Krieps gives an Oscar-worthy performance.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2018
3/5 85% Darkest Hour (2017) The ever-reliable Kristin Scott Thomas is the standout among the supporting cast, as Churchill's stoic wife. If only for Gary Oldman's Oscar-calibre performance, and hers, Darkest Hour merits a trip to the multiplex.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2018
2/5 54% 12 Strong (2018) To be fair, some of the action scenes are photographed with genuine flair, but none of the actors make an impression. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
1/5 57% The Commuter (2018) The Hitchcockian stranger-on-a-train premise is squandered on lapses in logic and generic close-combat skirmishes. Slow-motion shots and endless tracking through the compartments further impede the flow of a deadly-dull narrative.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2018
4/5 87% The Post (2018) An evenhanded snapshot of the fractious relationship between a deceitful government and committed journalists, The Post is essential viewing.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
5/5 51% Downsizing (2017) Working from an audacious idea conceived by his long-time collaborator Jim Taylor, co-scenarist and director Alexander Payne (Nebraska) has pulled off one of the great cinematic accomplishments of the new millennium.‐ Hindustan Times

4/6 100% Paddington 2 (2018) A rare sequel that lives up to (and even improves on) the original, Paddington 2 finds the beloved bear of children's literature off on another wondrous adventure.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
4/5 77% All the Money in the World (2017) The negotiations with the abductors are not always convincing, but the ticking-clock thriller elements are executed with flair.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2018
2.5/5 56% The Greatest Showman (2017) For a biopic that purports to celebrate humanity in all its diversity, The Greatest Showman is surprisingly flat.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) An intermittently amusing fantasy...welcome to the Jungle will appeal primarily to adolescent viewers.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2017
4.5/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) The Last Jedi is awe-inspiring and poignant. Expect to be riveted, despite its runtime of two-and-a-half hours.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2017
2.5/5 71% Ferdinand (2017) Ferdinand may not measure up to the standards set by such recent animated blockbusters as Inside Out or Coco. Still, the beloved bedtime story provides sufficient entertainment for the young at heart.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 No Score Yet Anna Karenina. Istoriya Vronskogo (2017) None of the characters makes an impression; there's no on-screen chemistry even between the lovers. You can safely give this one a miss.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
0.5/5 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) Daddy's Home 2 is as creatively bankrupt as the 2015 original. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
3/5 84% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) Borg Vs McEnroe is an even-handed sports movie that merits a look-see.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
4/5 35% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) Like its celebrated predecessor, All the President's Men, Mark Felt... is essential viewing.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
0.5/5 28% Amityville: The Awakening (2017) Instead of tension and thrills, there's just a bunch of clichés and an overwhelming sense of déjà vu.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 85% Wonder (2017) As inspirational as it is heartfelt, Wonder will strike a chord with audiences of all ages.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 40% Justice League (2017) What was supposed to be a superhero extravaganza from the DC universe feels instead like a sloppy remake of The Avengers.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2017
1.5/5 47% My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) The movie is clearly aimed at kindergartners (who may be frightened by some of the violent images); accompanying adults, expect to be left squirming in your seats.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
.5/5 29% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Clearly aiming to cash in on the (undeserved) success of last year's Bad Moms, this slapdash sequel is even more dispiriting.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 84% Loving Vincent (2017) A labour of love that has taken nearly seven years to finish, Loving Vincent raises the bar, and then some, for animation filmmakers.‐ Hindustan Times
