T-Meter Title | Year
1.5/5 58% Pet Sematary (2019) This film squanders the spooky premise of Stephen King's tale, relying instead on cheap scare tactics and a shrill soundtrack. - Hindustan Times EDIT

2/5 14% Hellboy (2019) There are no thrills, no emotional core. Just an excess of subplots and gore. - Hindustan Times EDIT

4/5 99% Free Solo (2018) Expect stunning visuals, plenty of drama. - Hindustan Times EDIT

3.5/5 90% Shazam! (2019) Shazam! is surprisingly good - as immensely enjoyable, in fact, as Wonder Woman was. - Hindustan Times EDIT

3.5/5 93% Fighting with My Family (2019) All in all, Fighting With My Family is a pleasant surprise. I recommend it for fans of wrestling and non-fans alike. - Hindustan Times EDIT

4.5/5 94% Us (2019) This psychological horror-thriller will haunts you long after it's over. - Hindustan Times EDIT

2/5 91% How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) The Hidden World is, at best, marginally diverting. - Hindustan Times EDIT

2.5/5 33% Wonder Park (2019) Splendiferous is a word the little protagonist uses often, and it certainly applies to the lush visuals of Wonder Park. Viewers in the target, single-digit age group are likely to be enchanted. Grown-ups are likely to spend their time in slumberland. - Hindustan Times EDIT

1.5/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) Almost everything about Captain Marvel tends towards the sub-standard, from the special effects to the action sequences, the scattershot storytelling and the slapstick. - Hindustan Times EDIT

3/5 85% The Wife (2018) Director Bjorn Runge explores, with bracing honesty, the crisis in the life of a seemingly happy, elderly married couple. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2019
2/5 60% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) We were led to expect a memorable spectacle from the creators of Avatar and Sin City. As it turns out, their joint venture is best deleted from the memory files. - Hindustan Times EDIT

3.5/5 86% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Essentially an inspiring animated musical, The Lego Movie 2 is recommended for the young at heart. - Hindustan Times EDIT

0.5/5 48% Escape Room (2019) Don't even attempt to solve the puzzle; just stay away from the Escape Room. - Hindustan Times EDIT

2.5/5 63% Mary Queen of Scots (2018) If only for their enthralling performances, the proto-feminist Mary Queen of Scots is worth a watch. - Hindustan Times EDIT

0.5/5 60% One Less God (2017) One Less God is even worse than the insufferable Replicas. This is not a good week at the movies. - Hindustan Times EDIT

0/5 10% Replicas (2019) I saw it so you wouldn't have to. Give Replicas a miss. - Hindustan Times EDIT

2/5 37% Glass (2019) Glass is now the second-least-impressive title, after The Last Airbender, in Shyamalan's canon. Sigh. - Hindustan Times EDIT

2/5 43% Second Act (2018) Jennifer Lopez plays a middle-aged woman trying to break out of her dull life, a storyline that may sound like it has potential but, in this case, goes nowhere. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2019
3/5 81% Ben is Back (2018) Ultimately, it's the pitch perfect performances of Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges (whose father Peter wrote and directed the film) that lend credulity to an otherwise overwrought tearjerker. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2018
3/5 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) The film's strength derives from its colourful visuals, a deft blend of old-school hand-drawn illustrations and innovative computer-generated animation stylings. - Hindustan Times EDIT

2/5 65% Aquaman (2018) Sadly, it's a crazy amalgam of subpar storytelling, non-stop action and constantly swirling camera work. Motion sickness ahoy! - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2018
54% Maleficent (2014) Sporting ruby-red lips, coloured contacts and swan-shaped horns, Angelina Jolie hasn't been as impressive since her Academy Award winning turn in Girl, Interrupted... - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2018
1/5 20% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) Even with its pared-down length of 87 minutes, it seemed like an eternity... - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2018
5/5 27% Mortal Engines (2018) A wildly imaginative concept, flawlessly executed, with special effects that will take your breath away. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2018
2/5 84% Creed II (2018) Settle in for an exceedingly average story, a total lack of thrills, and far too little of Sylvester Stallone. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2018
3.5/5 81% Boy Erased (2018) Without sensationalising the subject matter or demonising any of the characters, Edgerton elicits empathy for the young man who against daunting odds starts to come to terms with his sexual identity. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
2.5/5 37% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) ...so over-plotted, it's almost incomprehensible. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
3.5/5 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) A fitting tribute to Freddie Mercury and Queen, Bohamian Rhapsody is a stirring spectacle. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
2/5 58% The Grinch (2018) The film, despite the star cast and even a cameo by the legendary Angela Lansbury, is uniformly unimpressive. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2018
2/5 33% The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) The overall effect is far from wondrous. Kids are more than likely to relate to this fanciful fantasy. Others are advised to read the original short story instead. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
1/5 36% Hunter Killer (2018) Whether on the Arctic wastelands or in the briny depths, the action is consistently sluggish. Uninvolving from start to finish, Hunter Killer is instantly forgettable. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2018
3/5 80% Halloween (2018) The film displays enough panache - particularly in the extended climactic confrontation - to appease even the jaded horror-hound. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2018
1.5/5 13% Peppermint (2018) From its hackneyed time-lapse opening credits sequence to the preposterous twist towards the end, Peppermint is a depressing experience. - Hindustan Times EDIT

2.5/5 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) Despite its glossy sheen, this is just run-of-the-mill pulp fiction. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2018
2.5/5 67% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) The script captures the zestful spirit of a young man confident of overcoming any obstacles in his path. The incessant banter between the adults is hit-and-miss, but the period production design by Jon Hutman is spot-on. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
2/5 32% The Predator (2018) A barely serviceable update, The Predator is unlikely to succeed in creating a new generation of fans. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
2/5 52% Papillon (2018) Unrelentingly grim throughout its 130-minute runtime, Papillon is an exhausting experience. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
2/5 92% Searching (2018) The script is littered with twists and McGuffins. Shallow, humourless and overloaded with computer-y jargon, Searching barely merits a click. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
1.5/5 22% Mile 22 (2018) Mile 22 is a confounding, overly violent actioner that will leave you feeling fatigued. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
1.5/5 No Score Yet The Stolen Princess (Vykradena pryntsesa: Ruslan i Ludmila) (2018) The narrative flails its way through a series of contrivances and feeble attempts at humour. - Hindustan Times EDIT

3.5/5 80% Alpha (2018) Alpha is a stirring top-tier adventure. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
1.5/5 49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) The buddy flick is intermittently enlivened by the kooky antics of Kunis and McKinnon. The latter, in particular, is a hoot. Overall, though, The Spy Who Dumped Me is a downer. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
3.5/5 72% Christopher Robin (2018) A wondrous childlike odyssey, Christopher Robin is recommended both for the young and the young at heart. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
2/5 46% The Meg (2018) What's vastly missing is the element of fear. Things are disappointingly placid for the first half of The Meg; the second half, admittedly, is nerve-jangling. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
2.5/5 81% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) The film's confused and ditzy overall. But the formula will likely be irresistible to many. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
4/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) In a time of lacklustre franchise offerings, it says a lot for MI6 that we can't wait for a part 7. - Hindustan Times EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
3/5 47% Skyscraper (2018) If you enjoyed Die Hard, you'll probably like Skyscraper well enough. It always makes for riveting viewing when action icons must risk their lives to protect their loved ones...it's not a bad ride, if you can check your disbelief at the door. - Hindustan Times EDIT

2/5 61% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) A band of merry monsters on a luxury cruise should have been so much fun. Instead, [it] feels joyless, repetitive and tiresome. - Hindustan Times EDIT

2.5/5 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) Ultimately however it is Jodie Foster's characteristically assured performance that elevates the derivate material (John Wick, anyone?) above the commonplace. - Hindustan Times EDIT

4/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Ant-Man and the Wasp is a buzz-worthy blockbuster. - Hindustan Times EDIT
