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

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

2/5 70% Aquaman (2018) Sadly, it's a crazy amalgam of subpar storytelling, non-stop action and constantly swirling camera work. Motion sickness ahoy!‐ Hindustan Times

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

1/5 14% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) Even with its pared-down length of 87 minutes, it seemed like an eternity...‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 27% Mortal Engines (2018) A wildly imaginative concept, flawlessly executed, with special effects that will take your breath away.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 83% Creed II (2018) Settle in for an exceedingly average story, a total lack of thrills, and far too little of Sylvester Stallone.‐ Hindustan Times

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

2.5/5 38% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) ...so over-plotted, it's almost incomprehensible.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) A fitting tribute to Freddie Mercury and Queen, Bohamian Rhapsody is a stirring spectacle.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 57% The Grinch (2018) The film, despite the star cast and even a cameo by the legendary Angela Lansbury, is uniformly unimpressive. ‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 34% 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

1/5 37% 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

3/5 79% Halloween (2018) The film displays enough panache - particularly in the extended climactic confrontation - to appease even the jaded horror-hound.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 11% Peppermint (2018) From its hackneyed time-lapse opening credits sequence to the preposterous twist towards the end, Peppermint is a depressing experience.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) Despite its glossy sheen, this is just run-of-the-mill pulp fiction.‐ Hindustan Times
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
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
2/5 33% The Predator (2018) A barely serviceable update, The Predator is unlikely to succeed in creating a new generation of fans.‐ Hindustan Times
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
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

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

3.5/5 79% Alpha (2018) Alpha is a stirring top-tier adventure.‐ Hindustan Times
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

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
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

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

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 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

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

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

4.5/5 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) The painstaking production design, widescreen compositions and lustrous color schemes are a delight.‐ Hindustan Times

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

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 48% 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 70% 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 83% 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 15% 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 64% Peter Rabbit (2018) The wee ones might relate to the rabbit shenanigans, but overall, Peter Rabbit falls short.‐ Hindustan Times

0/5 21% 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 24% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) All in all, a turbulent ride to a known destination.‐ Hindustan Times
