2.5/5 22% 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 66% Cars 3 (2017) Aficionados of animated demolition derbies will not be disappointed.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 15% 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

0.5/5 19% 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

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 88% 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

3.5/5 73% 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 15% 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 71% 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

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 81% 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 60% 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 37% 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

1.5/5 45% 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

3/5 46% 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 46% 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

2/5 97% 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

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

2.5/5 51% The Boss Baby (2017) The Boss Baby should make for a pretty good family outing on a scorching afternoon.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 67% Life (2017) Life is bogged down by an unduly verbose narrative and an overload of technical jargon.‐ Hindustan Times

0.5/5 16% 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 67% 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

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

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

5/5 93% Logan (2017) This is one of the finest comics-to-screen adaptations ever.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 89% Jackie (2016) Despite some impressive visual flourishes - the slain President's limousine racing to the hospital - the much-hyped Jackie is ultimately a big let-down.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 86% Lion (2016) At times sentimental but never maudlin, Lion is an inspiring slice-of-life odyssey.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2017
2.5/5 96% The Artist (2011) One desperately wants to enjoy the cinematic escapade but the fun eventually wears thin as the familiar narrative fails to illuminate the magic of the movies during its infancy.‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 96% 12 Years a Slave (2013) 12 Years A Slave is essential viewing.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 96% Argo (2012) The screenplay abounds in droll dialogue and provides insider insight into Hollywood even lampooning people who work in show business.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2017
4.5/5 91% Birdman (2014) Part intense drama, part dark comedy, the fifth feature by the Mexican filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu delivers the cinematic equivalent of a knockout punch. ‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) A pulp fiction flick of almost operatic grandeur, Chapter 2 yields one helluva good time at the matinee. Have a blast.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 93% Hidden Figures (2017) Despite the stellar cast, though, the film is weighted down by an overload of subplots.‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 98% Moonlight (2016) Moonlight represents American independent cinema at its finest.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
.5/5 6% Rings (2017) The aim of Rings may have been to revive a long-dormant horror franchise, but the outcome is likely to be forgotten even before all the end credits have rolled.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
1.5/5 17% The Space Between Us (2017) It doesn't help that Butterfield and Robertson have little charisma and even less chemistry. Two hours is too high a price to pay for this saga that goes nowhere.‐ Hindustan Times

0.5/5 35% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) The outcome is guaranteed to try anyone's patience.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
3/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) Lavish colour-coded costumes, impeccable production design and nifty special effects make it eminently watchable, thanks in part to cinematographers Zhao Xiaoding and Stuart-Dryburg and the New Zealand-based Weta Workshop.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 84% The Founder (2017) [The Founder] benefits from a stirring storyline and a first-rate ensemble.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 43% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) The film's first hour is a misguided mess of montages and reams of exposition. The latter half, in which Cage and his band of mercenaries demonstrate their unwavering commitment to carnage, is marginally more tolerable.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 34% Live By Night (2017) Affleck balances the labyrinthine plot with pulse-quickening suspense and vivid production design.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
3/5 60% Joy (2015) The occasional use of dream sequences and flashbacks, particularly to Joy's courtship and marriage, are jarring. But Russell draws out expert performances from the ensemble.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 15% The Wild Life (2016) This retelling of Daniel Defoe's literary classic is squarely aimed at very young children.‐ Hindustan Times
