Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/5 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) Despite its glossy sheen, this is just run-of-the-mill pulp fiction.‐ Hindustan Times

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

2/5 34% The Predator (2018) A barely serviceable update, The Predator is unlikely to succeed in creating a new generation of fans.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 52% Papillon (2018) Unrelentingly grim throughout its 130-minute runtime, Papillon is an exhausting experience.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 93% 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

1.5/5 23% Mile 22 (2018) Mile 22 is a confounding, overly violent actioner that will leave you feeling fatigued.‐ Hindustan Times

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

3.5/5 82% Alpha (2018) Alpha is a stirring top-tier adventure.‐ Hindustan Times

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

3.5/5 70% Christopher Robin (2018) A wondrous childlike odyssey, Christopher Robin is recommended both for the young and the young at heart.‐ Hindustan Times

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

2.5/5 80% 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

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

3/5 46% 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

2/5 59% 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

2.5/5 58% 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

4/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Ant-Man and the Wasp is a buzz-worthy blockbuster.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
2.5/5 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Like most recent sequels...Day of the Soldado just makes you want to watch the original again.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2018
4.5/5 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) The painstaking production design, widescreen compositions and lustrous color schemes are a delight.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2018
3/5 68% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2018
4/5 89% 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 49% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) A two-hour roller-coaster trip, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is worth a ride.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
1/5 53% Book Club (2018) Despite the earnest efforts of its iconic ensemble cast, Book Club is unimpressive.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 25, 2018
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
Read More | Posted May 25, 2018
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
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
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
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
4/5 84% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
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
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
2/5 64% Peter Rabbit (2018) The wee ones might relate to the rabbit shenanigans, but overall, Peter Rabbit falls short.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
0/5 22% 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 72% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
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 44% 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 51% 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 17% 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 84% Game Night (2018) Car chases, shootouts and film references abound. In other words, there's scarcely anything original about the outlandish caper.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
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 40% 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 42% 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 84% 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 53% 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
