Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 66% 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 78% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Despite stunning visuals and a fine cast, Kong: Skull Island is, well, crushingly monkey brained.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 92% 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

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

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 97% 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

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

1.5/5 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 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 95% 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 94% 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

4.5/5 96% 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

3/5 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) In its own weird way, Miss Peregrine might be one of the most personal movies Tim Burton has made in his career.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 93% Queen of Katwe (2016) This movie is as much a romantic homage to the melodramas of the past as it is a radical, path-breaking piece of modern filmmaking. It is one of the best films of the year.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 96% 13th (2016) 13th has the urgency of a last-ditch attempt, a final warning sign before the road forks into uncharted, dangerous territory. It is a great film. It's streaming on Netflix, where it'll exist forever. You have no excuse to not watch it.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 60% The Siege of Jadotville (2016) You can't really fault a film for a lack of ambition if it doesn't pretend to have any in the first place, can you?‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 87% Amanda Knox (2016) Amanda Knox is put together like a sleek thriller - complete with a grizzled, I'm-too-old-for-this-s#!t lead investigator who likes 'detective movies', and can be found, guilt-ridden, in cathedrals, often with a forgotten pipe dangling from his mouth.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) The film rests upon the more-than-worthy shoulders of Denzel Washington - who brings his trademark strut, iconic slouch, and a cocked gun paired with that legendary cocked head.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 85% Sully (2016) Spare a thought for poor Laura Linney, whose only co-star in this film is a landline telephone. But Tom Hanks? He's the real American hero - even in the movies.‐ Hindustan Times
