3/5 51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Based on the comic book by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, there is an appropriately cartoony vibe to this follow-up flick.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 100% Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D (2017) All these years later, it still has the power to thrill.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) The only thing that makes the film watchable at all is the supercharged performance by Michael Keaton in the role of trainer / mentor.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 No Score Yet Baadshaho (2017) Baadshaho has too many ordinarily written characters jostling for whistle-worthy one-liners for 136-minutes. ‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 84% It (2017) The climactic confrontation is long-drawn-out and merely serves to set the tone for the proposed Chapter Two. Here's hoping it takes another 27 years for It and the gang to creep back into cinemas.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 93% Logan Lucky (2017) [Logan Lucky] is packed with deadpan humour, speedway action and a myriad twists.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) [Dark Tower] has a hackneyed plot that never really hits its stride.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 78% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Gore argues powerfully and effectively that if political and corporate lobbyists are not ignored, we will continue to witness extreme temperatures and apocalyptic natural disasters.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 71% Viceroy's House (2017) What the film doesn't misrepresent, it trivialises.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 68% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Talitha Bateman is effective as the possessed, polio-afflicted orphan, but the rest of the performances are uniformly forgettable. As, indeed, is Annabelle: Creation.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 75% Atomic Blonde (2017) Atomic Blonde would not have worked at all had it not been for two things - Charlize Theron, and a host of crisply choreographed action sequences.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 10% The Emoji Movie (2017) With its relatively brief running time of 85 minutes, The Emoji Movie provides passable entertainment for the children.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 73% Berlin Syndrome (2017) Berlin Syndrome is worth a watch but only for want of a more rewarding alternative at the multiplexes this week.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
1.5/5 50% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) There's some stunning cinematography courtesy frequent collaborator Thierry Arbogast. But the narrative is weak and the film is weighted down by conceptual overindulgence.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 93% Dunkirk (2017) Nolan deserves to be commended for his superior craftsmanship. Ultimately, however, Dunkirk falls way short of such contemporary genre classics as The Big Red One, The Thin Red Line or Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) The web-slinger's latest big-screen outing is fresh, funny and fairly exciting.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
5/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) It's smart, sombre and defiantly old-fashioned.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
1/5 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) The utterly incomprehensible plot of The Last Knight revives the old fracas between nice CGI metal machines and their nasty counterparts. As in the previous iterations, the fate of Earth is at stake, not to mention the viewer's eyes, ears and sanity.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 98% The Big Sick (2017) Heartwarming, compassionate and wholly human, The Big Sick is highly recommended.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
2.5/5 17% All Eyez on Me (2017) All Eyez on Me strives to explore the complexities of racial identity and the fallout of the East Coast-West Coast rap music feud, but the long-winded narrative provides barely any insight into the temperamental artist.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 68% Cars 3 (2017) Aficionados of animated demolition derbies will not be disappointed.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
1.5/5 16% The Mummy (2017) The legendary movie monster has been resurrected so many times since 1932 that the latest reboot not only has no freshness, it's also scare-free.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
0.5/5 18% Baywatch (2017) An utter waste of production resources as well as viewers' time and money.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Smart, funny and tremendously exciting.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2017
4/5 94% The Dark Knight (2008) One of the most stylish extravaganzas in years. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 31, 2017
3/5 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) For the first time since the franchise starter (...The Curse of the Black Pearl, 2003) one is led to exclaim, 'Entertainment, ahoy!'‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 87% The Lost City of Z (2017) The Lost City of Z is a stimulating reconstruction of one man's quest, over decades, for a vanished South American civilisation.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
3.5/5 74% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) After the Mumbai-based and highly acclaimed The Lunchbox, and Batra brings the same keen sensibility to this adaptation of Julian Barnes's Man Booker Prize-winning novella of the same name. ‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 17% The Circle (2017) It's a hot-button topic all right. Unfortunately, this cautionary tale about technological totalitarianism does not live up to its promise.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 70% Alien: Covenant (2017) From its deceptively gentle prelude to the majestic, Wagnerian finale, [Alien: Covenant] infuses the long-running series with a new lease on life.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
1/5 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) More outlandish and much less successful than several previous incarnations of the Arthurian legend, Guy Ritchie's reimagining is full of sound and fury, signifying, well, nothing.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Overall, though, Vol 2 suffers from blockbuster bloat. Hopefully the next installment, hinted at plentifully in the end credits, will recapture the fun-fuelled zing of the original.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 61% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) This is no Schindler's List. The Zookeeper's Wife barely makes it to see-grade.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 38% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) The digital animation is bland, the use of 3D ineffective, and the gags largely an endurance. The background music score is sappy.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 26% Unforgettable (2017) Unforgettable doesn't deliver on the promise of its title.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
2/5 40% Aftermath (2017) Schwarzenegger and McNairy contribute credible performances, but both actors deserved better than this uneven, unmoving tale.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
3/5 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Typically loud, long (two hours plus change) and abrasive, F&F 8 is a lot of, fun despite all its limitations.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
1.5/5 44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Ghost in the Machine has the cyberpunk aesthetic but lacks the core element of soul.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
4/5 80% Colossal (2017) The concept is a doozy, the treatment appropriately seriocomic, and the performances uniformly enthralling.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
3/5 48% Going in Style (2017) Time may have aged these three Oscar-winning veterans, but it certainly hasn't affected their comic timing.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 44% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) The question is: Do we really need the Power Rangers? For many of us, the answer is a simple, No.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
2/5 96% The Salesman (Forushande) (2017) Farhadi's love of theatre is evident in his stage-bound direction, which is chock-a-block with contrivances. For a purported revenge thriller, there is precious little tension. The tale quickly devolves into a mushy melodrama.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2017
1.5/5 30% A Dog's Purpose (2017) The climatic shenanigans give rise to full-blown schmaltz when the retriever starts to play matchmaker in order to reunite his first master (Dennis Quaid) with his former girlfriend.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2017
2.5/5 52% The Boss Baby (2017) The Boss Baby should make for a pretty good family outing on a scorching afternoon.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
1.5/5 67% Life (2017) Life is bogged down by an unduly verbose narrative and an overload of technical jargon.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
0.5/5 15% CHIPS (2017) Lame quips and (far too many) motorbike stunts are all you have to break the tedium.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
1/5 66% Before I Fall (2017) Let's just get it out there: Hollywood has milked the stuck-in-a-time-loop premise for all it's worth.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) It's sumptuously designed, has some catchy tunes and an A-list cast voicing anthropomorphic household appliances. Still, Disney's live-action remake of its 1991 animated feature is, by and large, underwhelming.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
2/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Unfortunately director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, making the leap to a big-budget blockbuster after his indie debut The Kings of Summer (2013), can't match the white-knuckle excitement of the iconic black-and-white original.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
2/5 80% Patriots Day (2017) Simplistic to an extent, the good guys-versus-villainous 'others' narrative is further undermined by the occasional undercurrent of jingoism.‐ Hindustan Times
