Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/5 71% 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 32% 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 89% 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

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

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 71% 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 52% 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

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

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

4/5 73% 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 43% 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

2/5 36% 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

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

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

2.5/5 49% 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

1.5/5 15% Mute (2018) The worst thing to happen to Justin Theroux this week.‐ Hindustan Times

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

4/5 73% Hostiles (2018) This is a Christian Bale performance that will likely be forgotten amid the dozens of louder ones he's delivered, as will this movie, but that is perhaps what makes Scott Cooper such a rarity.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 97% Black Panther (2018) They will write about this movie and make videos about it, it will be discussed among friends of all ages, all races, all shapes and sizes; it will be taught in school, debated among intellectuals, it will be seen as the moment everything changed.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) The Shape of Water is the world as Guillermo del Toro sees it - full of injustice, but also, crucially, decency. Where others see pain, he sees hope, where others see fear, he sees compassion, where others see monsters, he sees friends. ‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 71% The Ritual (2017) The Ritual is the finest, pure horror movie since Get Out. And if we're being even more traditional with our definitions, you'd have to go as far back as 2015's The Witch to make a suitable comparison.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 25% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) Who needs real actors when all Clint Eastwood wants to make is propaganda?‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 16% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) A painfully bad film that's a pockmark on JJ Abrams' (and Netflix's) legacy. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2018
4.5/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Phantom Thread is an oddity. It's a movie about love and obsession and obsessive love. It's Freudian and sadomasochistic, and for one glorious moment, almost passes off as director Paul Thomas Anderson's answer to Fifty Shades of Grey.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 41% Den of Thieves (2018) Just when you were about to brace yourself for your bi-annual abusive appointment with Gerard Butler, he went and did the best thing he's done in years.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 42% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) Is this as disappointing as the final Hunger Games movie? No, it most certainly isn't. Is it as bad as one of those Taylor Lautner solo vehicles? Nope. But is that a reason to recommend it? For the third time, no.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 85% Darkest Hour (2017) Gary Oldman delivers one of the finest performances of his career in director Joe Wright's technically brilliant but narratively flawed companion piece to Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 57% The Commuter (2018) Liam Neeson reunites with director Jaume Collet-Serra for the final action movie of his career. We're going to miss his unique set of skills.‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 87% The Post (2018) The Post is a brave movie - perhaps even braver than its biggest inspiration, All the President's Men. ‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 51% Downsizing (2017) Right now, Downsizing is ahead of its time, understandably rejected by audiences (and in an unbelievable betrayal, also by the critics). They should pick on someone their own size.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 78% All the Money in the World (2017) Ridley Scott just made history, and you need to witness it.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) The problem with Insidious: The Last Key is that it simply doesn't have the slightest enthusiasm to muster up something fresh for its fans.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Dwayne Johnson makes Robin Williams proud.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 84% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) It could - and I know this is stepping into some very murky conspiracy theory territory - be one of LaBeouf's elaborate performance art pieces to exonerate himself - in which case, well played, sir.‐ Hindustan Times

0/5 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) In which alleged domestic abuser Mel Gibson encourages a child to commit sexual assault.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Not only has Kenneth Branagh retained the exotic romanticism of Christie's novels, he has found dimensions to the Dame's stories that I - despite being a tremendous fan of her books - had never expected, and honestly, never even thought of.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 40% Justice League (2017) For better or for worse, Justice League is the sum of all its predecessors' parts; as grand as Man of Steel, as murky as Batman v Superman, as messy as Suicide Squad, and as optimistic as Wonder Woman. ‐ Hindustan Times

0.5/5 29% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Calling it a broad comedy would be like fat-shaming an entire genre.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Everything from the font used in the titles, to the synth-infused rock opera score by Mark Mothersbaugh, to the gloriously retro set design and visuals clearly inspired by the art of Jack Kirby, there is no Marvel movie quite like it.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 12% Geostorm (2017) Feels like Gerard Butler repeatedly yelling 'This is Sparta' at your face for 2 hours.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 89% Wheelman (2017) Wheelman is paced like a juiced up F1 car, racing through its roughly hour-and-fifteen-minute run time with barely any pit stops.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 86% 1922 (2017) 1922 is a terrific example of just how powerful horror movies can be. Not only does writer-director Zak Hilditch employ a gorgeous, psychological slow-burn approach to the storytelling, he punctuates it with sudden bursts of visceral horror. ‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 71% The Babysitter (2017) Finally, the hot girl next door running a Satanic sex club movie we were all waiting for.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 92% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) The best Adam Sandler film since 2009's Funny People. Would it be too weird to begin an Oscar campaign?‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 66% Victoria & Abdul (2017) Obnoxiously, it slaps you on the back, barks some nonsense about the good old days, and laughs loudly at its own jokes. But behind those sparkling white teeth, there is a snake's tongue. Beneath that immaculate exterior, there lies a bitter heart.‐ Hindustan Times
