Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 86% 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 88% 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 50% 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 77% All the Money in the World (2017) Ridley Scott just made history, and you need to witness it.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 30% 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 26% Bright (2017) Where there is a Will Smith there is a way.‐ Hindustan Times

5/5 90% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) A profound spiritual experience.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 79% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) 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
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
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 13% Geostorm (2017) Feels like Gerard Butler repeatedly yelling 'This is Sparta' at your face for 2 hours.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2017
4/5 88% 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 88% 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 75% The Babysitter (2017) Finally, the hot girl next door running a Satanic sex club movie we were all waiting for.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
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

5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) With this, there can be little doubt that Denis Villeneuve is one of the greatest science-fiction filmmakers ever - right up there with Kubrick, Fritz Lang, and Nolan.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 91% Our Souls at Night (2017) It is possibly too early in his career to tell, but there aren't many filmmakers who display in their films the empathy Ritesh Batra does in his. ‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 87% American Made (2017) There's an energy to the flight sequences that I haven't seen since Cruise was screaming about 'the need for speed' more than two decades ago. And there's a jittery, almost cocaine-addled pace to the story.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Nothing about this film could inspire serious discussion - not even its ah-I-see-what-you-did-there ending, telecast, of all places, on Fox News.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 89% Lady Macbeth (2017) Like a Charlotte Bronte adaptation directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. Utterly brilliant.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
3/5 89% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2017
2.5/5 38% 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 39% 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
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
3/5 69% 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 9% The Emoji Movie (2017) One of the worst films of the year. It's the poop emoji personified.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
3.5/5 77% 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 49% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
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 92% 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
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
3/5 66% 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 16% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
3/5 51% 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 30% 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 68% 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
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
4/5 83% 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
