4/5 65% 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 15% The Mummy (2017) Categorically the worst movie of Tom Cruise's career.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 19% 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terrible CGI, even worse green screen effects, and the maturity of a 12-year-old boy whose internet privileges have been revoked.‐ Hindustan Times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 55% 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 71% 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 81% 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

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

3/5 40% 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

2/5 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The strangest, darkest, most outlandishly bizarre entry in the series. ‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 45% 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 43% 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

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

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

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

5/5 86% 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

4.5/5 75% Split (2017) I let out an audible gasp at the end. That has never happened.‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 85% 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 89% 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

4/5 90% 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 6% Rings (2017) You'd be better off watching that cursed Samara video.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 34% 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 43% 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

4/5 87% 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

4/5 60% Allied (2016) Brad Pitt, that Inglourious Basterd, is hunting Nazis again...‐ Hindustan Times

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

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

5/5 93% La La Land (2016) You have been wronged far too often, I know; the movies have wronged us all. They have stood us up, left us alone on rainy curbs, but you must put your faith in them, one last time. You must run to La La Land.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 80% Barry (2016) Barry is for all the lost souls getting punched by strangers in alien hallways, it is for all the wanderers with nowhere to be. It captures the beautifully conflicted dumpster-fire that the world is right now.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 84% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Deepwater Horizon is a solidly-crafted disaster film, with fine American actors performing a quintessential American story - a story of corporate greed and everyday heroism.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 45% Hands of Stone (2016) It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a sports movie in possession of a good story, must be a boxing movie.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 96% Moana (2016) Moana is a terrific Disney movie; vibrant, joyful, with great music and enthusiastic performances. It is steeped in tradition, both of its many legendary predecessors and the colourful culture it celebrates.‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 93% Arrival (2016) Awarding it a bag-full of Oscars come February would be too puny a recognition, too inconsequential; it deserves to be shown in museums, to governments, in schools. Missing it should be outlawed.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 66% Nerve (2016) For a film designed for an audience that will unlikely be able to purchase its tickets with their own money, Nerve is a surprisingly solid, if derivative teen thriller.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Watching Fantastic Beasts is like being guided by Rowling herself, our hand placed gently in hers, in a world that is as warmly familiar as it is excitingly fresh.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 46% Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) Being a war hero isn't enough. The power of celebrity Trumps everything. Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk: Made in America. By an immigrant. ‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 90% Doctor Strange (2016) If only the same care that has gone into its visuals were put in the rest of it, Doctor Strange could've been a trippy, psychedelic adventure, and not a middling entry in a 14-film-old franchise.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 71% Before the Flood (2016) Alas, even Leonardo DiCaprio can't survive this apocalypse.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 90% Into the Inferno (2016) Does Werner Herzog know what documenting these stories can do to a man? These stories of tragedy and hope and loss that he learns about, staring into eyes just as insane as his...‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 95% Train to Busan (Busanhaeng) (2016) Train to Busan is one of the best surprises of the year; a redemption tale that reminds us how close we are to losing our humanity, but also the compassion we are capable of. All aboard.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 19% Inferno (2016) It took substantial self-control to resist making fire jokes, but it's now or never, so here goes. Inferno, despite the best efforts of an always-dependable Tom Hanks, burns up in a raging fireball.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 89% Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders (2016) Oh Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, what have you done? You were supposed to be a kitschy throwback to 50 years ago, a gleeful POW! in the face of a brooding Batfleck, but you're so much more.‐ Hindustan Times
