Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

1/5 39% 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

1.5/5 43% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) The final chapter in the trilogy is poorly written, predictable, devoid of suspense.‐ Hindustan Times

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

3/5 86% 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

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

4/5 88% The Post (2018) An evenhanded snapshot of the fractious relationship between a deceitful government and committed journalists, The Post is essential viewing.‐ Hindustan Times

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

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 55% 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

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

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 79% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) Borg Vs McEnroe is an even-handed sports movie that merits a look-see.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 34% 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 29% 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
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
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 46% 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
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
3.5/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Thor is a rousing example of how to refresh a comic-book franchise.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Blade Runner 2049 honours and even amplifies the vision of its predecessor.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2017
3/5 86% American Made (2017) Quite an airy romp, American Made is worth checking out.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
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 85% 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 92% 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 80% 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
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
1.5/5 69% 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 77% 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 9% 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 49% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
3/5 92% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
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 16% 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
