Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
87% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Director Peyton Reed reassembles almost everyone from the original film and returns to build on the surprising magic that the unlikely team managed to pull off the first time around.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Solo is a closer cousin to the original source material, than to the new crop of trilogies and standalone films.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

82% Deadpool 2 (2018) What Deadpool 2 manages to pull off best is that it easily juggles all its characters, the old and the new, and gets them to play off Deadpool's wild and zany personality, making for a constantly engaging dynamic.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) The Russos, while tipping their hat to these individual filmmakers who put their unique stamp on each of their own films, elevate their own art and skilfully weave a story that seems cohesive and resonant, physically and emotionally.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

73% Ready Player One (2018) While Ready Player One will probably never be called a Spielberg classic, watch this movie for the classic feeling that only Spielberg can provide: the simple joy of being swept away at the movies.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

92% The Shape of Water (2017) Sally Hawkins delivers a performance of a lifetime...A visually stunning adventure that's part monster film, part romantic fable, and part Cold War thriller, The Shape of Water is a playground for some of Del Toro's favourite themes.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

97% Black Panther (2018) It's the kind of art that's aggressively theatrical, but not even for a moment does it feel performative.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Part-horror, part-thriller and part-morality play, the justice system in the world of Killing of a Sacred Deer terrifyingly holds a mirror to our own.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) While the film may not punch you in the gut the way Williams' Jumanji did, the sequel offers much in the way of laughs and shallow entertainment.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) The Last Jedi is not a film for the faint of heart. But courage, a sense of wonder, a resounding faith in the strength of love, and a healthy dose of hope will take you far.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

63% Beyond the Clouds (2018) Beyond the Clouds is a story about love, family and finding the two in unexpected places. That Majidi manages to tell this story in a country unlike his own - and tell it well - is a testament to its universal strength.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

97% Coco (2017) Pixar returns stronger than ever with a magical and visual treat that will tug at your heartstrings.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) To summarise, treat yourself this week with a trip to 2049. You may return with more questions than before you went in, but at least it'll make you think.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) If the original Kingsman movie asked you to suspend your disbelief, Kingsman: The Golden Circle wants its viewers to take it and shoot it all the way to hell.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

3.5/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) All in all, Apocalypse feels like the rise of a new generation of X-Men characters that could easily take the franchise to new heights of glory.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

3.5/5 31% Passengers (2016) The actors just couldn't make it work in Morten Tyldum's disastrous Passengers.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

3.5/5 27% Warcraft (2016) Warcraft is a welcome change from all the superheroes in spandex and capes that we've been inundated with since the beginning of the year. ‐ Gulf News (UAE)

4/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sets the benchmark of how a good standalone film can be made without ruining a tight story with unnecessary sequels.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

3.5/5 93% Hidden Figures (2017) Watch this movie for the important story it tells - women standing up against racism and sexism in different and complex ways.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

2/5 39% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) What should have been a late summer treat is soured by extremely lazy writing and a forgettable plot. ‐ Gulf News (UAE)

41% Death Note (2017) [Death Note] whitewashes a cast that's originally entirely Japanese. The result, as you'd expect, is soulless and nonsensical.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

92% Wonder Woman (2017) The moral of the story, children, is that the world, of superheroes and mere mortals alike, is all the more better when there are more women around.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

5/5 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Lego Batman Movie is the fun, exhilarating and irreverent Batman movie we all deserve and need, and there are more than a million reasons why.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

85% Star Trek Beyond (2016) Justin Lin's take on J.J. Abrams' reboot of the franchise, while taking it back to basics, fails to do little else but give you the faint promise of excitement, but never fully delivering.‐ Gulf News (UAE)
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Marvel proves yet again that it's not just running on a streak of luck: These guys have enough superhero tricks up their sleeve to keep us coming back for the foreseeable future.‐ Gulf News (UAE)
Read More | Posted May 5, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Crushed under the weight of creating a Marvel-esque DC franchise, Batman v Superman fails to ever truly tap into the potential that a clash between two of the most revered superheroes of all time should technically provide.‐ Gulf News (UAE)

73% Everest (2015) Too many characters and too little context give the tragedy little scale and even less emotion.‐ The New Indian Express
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2015
91% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) It's absolutely brilliant to watch Marvel take the risk and put out something as zany, wacky and completely irreverent as Guardians.‐ The New Indian Express
