Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 87% First They Killed My Father (2017) Perhaps it'll take her a few more films, but it is my firm belief that one day Angelina Jolie will make a great one. She's almost there.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 85% It (2017) It is funny and warm and touching and frightening and profane and profound. It's one of the best horror movies of the year. You'll float alright.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 34% Kidnap (2017) Kidnap is a shoddily-directed movie - filled with ADHD editing, ridiculous twists, and a tone that irresponsibly swerves between gritty thriller and Road Runner cartoon.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 40% Death Note (2017) A chronic side-effect of movies based on existing properties is that they usually alienate those outside its immediate fanbase. Not Death Note. It feels like the first in a series you'd want to see.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) Matthew McConaughey walked into a terrible movie, and Idris Elba followed.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 68% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Annabelle: Creation borrows heavily from modern Spanish horror movies - movies like El Orfanato, Los ojos de Julia - which is fortunate, because modern American horror movies are (usually) the pits.‐ Hindustan Times

0.5/5 10% The Emoji Movie (2017) One of the worst films of the year. It's the poop emoji personified.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 75% Atomic Blonde (2017) It's the kind of movie in which characters foxily pull down their shades to reveal come-to-bed eyes; the kind of movie in which hot women take luxurious drags off half-smoked cigarettes, and walk with the clip-clop of stilettos on cold concrete.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 50% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) About an hour into the film, Besson pauses the story and forces you to gawk at a shape-shifting Rihanna prancing about on a stripper's pole, while a bejewelled cowboy played by Ethan Hawke cackles in the background.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 73% Berlin Syndrome (2017) Not only does Berlin Syndrome go for the emotional punch of Room, it also wants to appeal to B-movie fans by never missing an opportunity to undress Teresa Palmer, and then take Polariods of her against her will.‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 93% Dunkirk (2017) Dunkirk, a film about men, created by men, is a force of nature - an elemental beast of a movie about finding the meaning of life surrounded by the meaninglessness of war.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) It might be the first great post-human movie, and an almost Biblical conclusion to one of the finest modern trilogies. All hail Matt Reeves.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 68% To the Bone (2017) Her bones stick out like the blades of a prehistoric reptile. Her stomach - or, at least the area where her stomach should be - seems to have had air sucked out of it with a vacuum. When she moves, you almost expect a clanging noise.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) It is, like they promised, a quintessential American coming-of-age movie John Hughes would've been proud of, complete with jocks and nerds, bored teachers and detention, after-school hijinks, and first love.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) I've never been to the opera, nor have I ever seen a 90-piece orchestra play Beethoven. But I imagine this - the action in this movie - is what it must feel like. Baby Driver is symphonic. It's ecstatic. It's hypnotic. When it soars, it soars.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Transformers: The Last Knight is a rusty, rotting heap of scrap metal. It's Michael Bay venturing into the most self-indulgent, the most conceited corners of his psyche.‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 85% Okja (2017) In a fair world, Okja would have the power to make even the most belligerent meat eaters consider vegetarianism. It is the first great film of 2017. Protect it fiercely.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 68% Cars 3 (2017) Cars 3 was the underdog, coming from behind, facing shiny new competition. It was betrayed by its own family, and challenged by Gru. But it saved its best for last. In its final lap, it won. It became the first film in the series Pixar should be proud of.‐ Hindustan Times

0.5/5 16% The Mummy (2017) Categorically the worst movie of Tom Cruise's career.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2017
1/5 18% Baywatch (2017) It boasts unpardonably terrible CGI, even worse green screen effects, and the maturity of a 12-year-old boy whose internet privileges have been revoked.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 54% War Machine (2017) No actor plays dimwits quite like Brad Pitt. And they aren't just regular old dimwits: They're the sort of bafflingly idiotic, all-star dimwits you couldn't picture using a spoon properly, let alone solving that pesky Middle East crisis.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Johnny Depp is adrift at sea, shipwrecked aboard a sinking vessel, drowning in a typhoon of CGI murkiness. Savvy?‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 70% Alien: Covenant (2017) The only realistic situation in which these... Aliens... would even bother to waste a reflex glance in our direction would be if Trump accidentally lobs a nuke at Texas. But anyway, Michael Fassbender kisses Michael Fassbender in this movie!‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) The soundtrack has bigger hits, Groot is an even bigger scene-stealer, and the villain problem has been solved. But it's all a means to the heart of the story: Family. And not that Fast & Furious nonsense either.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
2/5 47% Sand Castle (2017) There's a good chance you might forget Sand Castle exists moments after watching it, much like how the world seems to have forgotten the massive scandal that the Iraq War was, now that every day basically begins with a chance of it ending in nuclear war.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
3/5 39% Aftermath (2017) For a film in which Arnold Schwarzenegger's character loses his entire family in a tragic plane crash, it chooses to open with a dig at Donald Trump.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
2/5 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The strangest, darkest, most outlandishly bizarre entry in the series. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2017
3/5 44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) It does offer, in addition to all the cool visuals, one of the purest forms of joy available to a movie fan: The sight of the great 'Beat' Takeshi Kitano, gunning down fools in a dank, vaguely Asian alleyway, dripping in neon haze. Yes please.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 80% Colossal (2017) Anne Hathaway has monsters in her closet. Watch, as she kicks them in the nethers.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 44% The Discovery (2017) To borrow the motto of my favourite café in my favourite hilly town, "There is no good explanation for what is happening here..."‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
4/5 67% Life (2017) The movie is, to put it plainly, like a mutated clone birthed in a secret government lab using smuggled Alien DNA. But it's made with such well-oiled precision, delights in such gleefully claustrophobic chills, it's difficult to resist.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
2.5/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Despite stunning visuals and a fine cast, Kong: Skull Island is, well, crushingly monkey brained.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
4.5/5 93% Logan (2017) It is uncompromising in its brutality and fearless in its reverence of these iconic characters. It's a testament to the power of storytelling, and what creative freedom can produce. Goodbye bub. You've changed superhero movies forever.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 80% Patriots Day (2017) It's the anti-Trump movie America needs right now.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
5/5 85% Lion (2016) Thank God Lion exists. We need more films like it, like Slumdog, to shame us into being better by showing us our worst, and to inspire us into being brave, by showing us our best.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
4.5/5 74% Split (2017) I let out an audible gasp at the end. That has never happened.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2017
5/5 84% Silence (2017) Faith. Why must we have it? Must we have it at all? And do we - can we - comprehend it? There are no simple answers to this, and perhaps that is why Scorsese is still making movies. Silence is yet another masterpiece.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 98% Moonlight (2016) Life had been scraping along before Chiron was born, and it will likely keep trudging towards an overdose once he is gone. Moonlight is the story of a lifetime, a worthy Oscar contender.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) This is John Wick we're talking about. It is said that he once killed three men in a bar with a pencil (a pencil!). ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
4/5 91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) For a children's movie - one that is essentially about plastic toys pounding each other into the Phantom Zone, which also includes a Z-list villain named Condiment King (he shoots ketchup and mustard out of special guns, duh) - it's pretty terrific!‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 7% Rings (2017) You'd be better off watching that cursed Samara video.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
3.5/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) Donald Trump could learn a thing or two about walls from this...‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
1/5 34% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) It's like being eaten to death by infected zombies.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
0.5/5 24% The Bye Bye Man (2017) Kill it before it lays eggs.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
1.5/5 35% Live By Night (2017) In Live by Night, Ben Affleck finds every imaginable way to shoot his own film in the foot - and then light a match and set fire to the gaping wound, as it hobbles away into oblivion.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 44% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) It's a different kind of beast; one of those rare films that could very well draw whoops and cheers from certain audiences, and at the same time, it's equally possible that it puts the rest to sleep.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
4/5 88% A Monster Calls (2017) To have captured grief with such raw honesty, not just the confusion, but also the rage, is where Bayona has knocked it out of the park.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
4/5 60% Allied (2016) Brad Pitt, that Inglourious Basterd, is hunting Nazis again...‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
1.5/5 18% Assassin's Creed (2016) It's sort of like the Matrix, but with all the philosophical heft of a Trojan virus.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2016
4/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) We must trust this series, a series that made us fall in love with scruffy-looking nerf herders, trigger happy fuzzballs and pessimistic droids. We must trust the Force.‐ Hindustan Times
