Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4.5/5 88% First Man (2018) At three films old now - everyone has decided (incorrectly but conveniently) that he made his debut with Whiplash - director Damien Chazelle's obsession with obsession is taking shape.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 78% 22 July (2018) Director Paul Greengrass steps away from Jason Bourne and returns to his roots with a harrowing real-life account of the 2011 terror attacks in Norway.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 31% Venom (2018) Tom Hardy delivers a bravura one-man show in this poisonously drab Spider-Man spin-off.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Watching its characters, Steve Rogers' quip instantly comes to mind: "Take away the money, what are you?" Unfortunately for Crazy Rich Asians, it has neither the wit nor the likability of Tony Stark. Instead, it drawls like Bruce Wayne, "I'm rich."‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 68% Hold the Dark (2018) From its very first scenes, Hold the Dark latches onto your neck and drags you, despite your protests, to where it wants you. And in its final moments, it goes in for the kill.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 100% Village Rockstars (2017) More than Terrence Malick and the existential poetry of his films, Village Rockstars' closest cinematic cousins are Benh Zeitlin's 2012 fable about climate change, Beasts of the Southern Wild, and Sean Baker's 2017 masterpiece, The Florida Project.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 38% Johnny English Strikes Again (2018) The kindest thing that can be said about Johnny English Strikes Again is that it clocks in at 89 minutes - 80, if you scarper before the end credits.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 33% The Predator (2018) As you'd imagine, no one with more than one X chromosome is welcome to this party.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 26% The Nun (2018) Stop me if you've heard this one before. A priest, a nun and a village idiot walk into a haunted monastery...‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 93% Searching (2018) Searching is more than just an empty stylistic exercise. Beneath the cool techno thrills, there is a beating heart. It's one of the best and most innovative thrillers of the year.‐ Hindustan Times

0.5/5 11% Satyameva Jayate (2018) Satyameva Jayate is near-unwatchable. It is a torturous experience; a deeply irresponsible, phony and tone-deaf waste of time, a shameful low for everyone involved.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 No Score Yet Long Live Brij Mohan (2018) Every performance, for some reason, is childishly loud, as if delivered by five-year-olds made to look like adults.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 71% Karwaan (2018) Karwaan is a bittersweet, tender and hilarious road trip film about life and death, fathers and their children; featuring three empathetic central performances by Irrfan, Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) The Equalizer films don't exactly push him beyond his comfort zone. But they celebrate the icon that Denzel is. They play on his persona, they savour his looming presence, and they give him more to chew on than similar films would.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 46% The Devil and Father Amorth (2018) The Devil and Father Amorth is more than just a schlocky oddity, it's a fascinating exploration of the human brain and the power of religion.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Mission: Impossible - Fallout has some of the most stunning action ever put on film - Nolanesque in tone, paced like a bullet, and breathtaking in IMAX.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 34% I Feel Pretty (2018) Perhaps save this one for when you're feeling sorry for yourself with a bucket of ice cream and a bag of cholesterol in front of you?‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
3/5 46% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper has some of the nuttiest moments of any Rock movie, and this is including the muscle-flex-plaster-break from Furious 7, getting flipped off by a giant gorilla in Rampage, and racing a nuclear missile in Fate of the Furious.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 14% Siberia (2018) It almost gives the impression that a well-meaning team went out into the wilderness to make a movie about the titular Russian frontier town, and came back with approximately four-fifths of what they needed to cut together a workable film.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Barely an hour has passed since I saw it, and it has already been reduced to dust in my memory.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) It's about dictatorship and Nazis and the Holocaust. It's the most distressing film Wes Anderson has ever made.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Director Stefano Sollima can't quite capture the brute magic of Denis Villeneuve's first film, but Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin are on top form.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
1/5 10% Escape Plan 2: Hades (2018) Instead of putting in exactly the same amount of effort and creating an original film, the men and women behind Escape Plan 2 were so risk-averse that they thought there's a bigger audience for new Escape Plan movies. ‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 89% Hereditary (2018) There is no scenario that ends with you having a pleasant experience watching this film. There is a malevolence about it, an unshakable evilness that penetrates your psyche drop by painful drop.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) There's a lesson in there about apathy and idealism, valuable because it comes at a time when doing nothing doesn't seem like a valid option anymore. It's also a lowkey remake of Hancock.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 100% Lust Stories (2018) There are enough reasons for us to be at odds with each other - certainly these days, when antagonism is almost encouraged - but there's room for everyone, Lust Stories seems to say; for all kinds of people, and above all, all kinds of movies.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a new low for the iconic series; extinction is the only cure. ‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 92% Revenge (2018) It's a blood-soaked fable, a rape-revenge movie made with style and subtext.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2018
4/5 88% You Were Never Really Here (2018) Like an impure lovechild of Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive and Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver, Lynne Ramsay's You Were Never Really Here is a tense, brutal revenge picture, featuring a terrific Joaquin Phoenix performance.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 98% The Tale (2018) The Tale is an uncompromising self-portrait, a painful memoir of an artist battling her past. Laura Dern delivers the performance of her career.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) It's a rite-of-passage movie about what it takes this free spirited rebel - a reckless kid more concerned with impressing a girl rather than igniting the spark that will eventually fuel the rebellion - to become the character we know and love.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 34% Fahrenheit 451 (2018) Contrary to what is happening in our country, Donald Trump's presidency has emboldened filmmakers to directly challenge it, and Fahrenheit 451 is clearly an updated adaptation designed specifically with Trump in mind.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Ryan Reynolds still looks like a hard boiled Voldemort, and he's still running that mouth like there's no Deadpool 3, but Deadpool 2 is a bigger, filthier and better movie than the original.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 79% Batman Ninja (2018) It's one of the most eye-poppingly original takes on the Dark Knight, and certainly his most refreshing depiction since Christopher Nolan's trilogy.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
3.5/5 88% Psychokinesis (2018) A much-needed antidote to the colossal scale of Avengers: Infinity War, an inventive superhero tale in the vein of Chronicle, Unbreakable.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
4/5 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Avengers: Infinity War is everything you wanted and more - it's the end of the beginning of the end, an ambitious spectacle that confidently juggles character moments between the most epic action Marvel has ever attempted.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 70% Kodachrome (2018) Kodachrome is a real film, with real, carefully written characters, and a sincerity that feels almost old-fashioned - like the celluloid with which it is made.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 53% Rampage (2018) The Rock's recent output seems to be made up of dusty old relics hastily cleaned as a last moment gift for a younger audience that may or may not throw it in the trash.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
4.5/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) John Krasinski's horror film is destined for greatness. It's one of the best of the last decade. You will scream for days.‐ Hindustan Times

0.5/5 8% Basmati Blues (2018) Yes, as an Indian critic, I can confirm that Brie Larson's film is unbelievably and insultingly racist. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
4.5/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) We don't often see these people in movies, especially in American movies. We see them in the background, hustling, hawking, stealing, serving, providing - as we do in real life.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
4/5 72% Ready Player One (2018) Ready Player One feels like a culmination of the era of pop-culture that we live in, a carnival-like celebration of geekdom that only Steven Spielberg could have made.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) What it doesn't deliver in terms of the sheer density of imagination of Guillermo del Toro's original, it more than makes up for in pure spectacle.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
2/5 38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) There is only so much stalking and killing one person can reasonably be expected to sit through, and even then, it's only natural to want a bit of variety in the manner in which the shrieking victims are murdered.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
4.5/5 84% The Square (2017) Like director Ruben Östlund's last movie, the phenomenal Force Majeure, his new one, The Square, is a bitingly hilarious satire about masculinity, and about the lies men tell themselves.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
4.5/5 87% Annihilation (2018) It's one of the most stunning displays of directorial vision in recent memory, sure to be a classic of the genre in the years to come.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2018
2.5/5 51% Tomb Raider (2018) Angelina Jolie would be slightly envious of Alicia Vikander's Lara Croft. That being said, the film feels like a gruff handshake when it should have felt like a warm hug.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Saoirse Ronan, 23, has three Oscar nominations already. What have you been doing with your life?‐ Hindustan Times

Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2018
5/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Three Billboards not only aspires towards greatness, but confronts it, screams at it, and when it has everyone's attention, revels in it. It's a profane and profound masterpiece that will evolve into a time capsule of sorts, when things get better.‐ Hindustan Times
