Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1.5/5 54% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) Unless you are a kid who was just fed a jar of sugar, I'd say it'd be quite tough to keep up with this annoying, screaming film.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 60% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) [Hobbit 3] maintains the light and often humorous spirit of the prequel franchise and still manages to remind us we are coming close to the actual LOTR with its lessons in the sins of greed and avarice.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 97% Boyhood (2014) [Boyhood' is truly a historical moment in cinema.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 77% Fury (2014) All of this was worth it when we finally got to see some tank against tank or tank against a full army action. The climax of the movie will be counted as one of the best war scenes in recent times‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 43% Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) It is very rarely that we see good sequels and this one is not to be missed.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 41% Step Up: All In (2014) This one, again, is driven by the tried and tested formula that is cast in stone for all Step Up films.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 22% Into The Storm (2014) Watch the movie only if you are a fan of meaningless disaster flicks. We have another suggestion: go easy on the soft drinks with this one.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 67% Lucy (2014) Do we need repeating? Watch it for the 'breathtaking' VFX and Scarlett Johansson and for 90 minutes of visual delight. ‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 No Score Yet Lekar Hum Deewana Dil (2014) Lekar Hum Deewana Dil is an epic fail.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 60% Despicable Me 3 (2017) Have we seen better animated films? Without a doubt, yes. Have we seen a better film in the same franchise? Definitely. But that doesn't take away from the fact that this too is 1.5 hours of silly fun with a filling of marshmallowy niceness.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) If you can forgive the ending, like I have, and love Diana for her inspiring character, the righteousness of her spirit and also the mad slo-mo action, this film will lasso you right in.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 29% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) The film just doesn't wash. The plot defies logic, performances are below par and several bad directorial decisions sink the period drama so deep that even a seething Jude Law can't lift it up.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 73% Sing (2016) Sing is formulaic, amusing at places but will be forgotten as soon as you step out. And unless you are writing a review, I don't see why you should remember it anyway.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 33% A Dog's Purpose (2017) So, you too take inspiration for the sentient doggy and ignore the gaping holes in the film's own logic and choose to swim against the torrid current of reason (much like that poor dog).‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) What makes this film more than just another fairytale with extra CGI, pretty dresses and a happy ending, are the songs.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 88% Jackie (2016) Portman does a stellar job of drawing out all the hundred emotions of sadness, grief and hopelessness that one would have thought are humanly possible. Her performance, however, is not as nuanced and varied as in the... Black Swan.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 92% Hidden Figures (2017) A heart-warming film and not one to be missed if you have lately been running low on inspiration in life. Let the stories of three geniuses tell you how a woman, despite several hurdles, can still cross the finish line. ‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 30% Passengers (2016) The problem with Passengers is not the selfishness but the laziness with which it has been wrapped in the garb of 'love'.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 41% Office Christmas Party (2016) Sounds fun, right? Except it isn't.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 98% Zootopia (2016) Zootopia has great voice performances from Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman who suit their characters perfectly.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 14% Collateral Beauty (2016) Here comes Will Smith in a red Santa suit bearing Collateral Beauty, the perfect holiday movie about dying children. Isn't that something to spread the cheer?‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 74% Trolls (2016) Wait, this isn't about the deplorable idiots on the internet? That's one good title wasted.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) It does have the vibes of a fun chick flick but sorry Bridget, I cannot love you just the way you are anymore: incomplete without a man‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 58% Bad Moms (2016) I wish I could throw Bad Moms in the faces of the misogynistic haters found regularly in the YouTube comments section of Ghostbusters trailer and laugh at their expressions of defeat but it's me sitting sunken in my seat with the same expression.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 75% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) It is a wonderful answer to every pet owner's paranoia and I recommend that you watch it, with your pets if you can. But maybe they watched it already while you were at work today.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) Be sure, you will laugh, your kids will laugh but be also sure, you will not cry. And that makes the whole difference with Pixar.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 37% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) X-Men, Avengers, and everything Transformers: These were the ingredients chosen to create this unnecessary sequel but director Dave Green accidentally added an extra something to the concoction-Chemical Cliché.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 84% The Walk (2015) Watch this film for Levitt's great portrayal of Petit, Zemeckis' great visual effects and also the greatness of the feat achieved by the artist.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 89% Big Hero 6 (2014) Big Hero 6 fails to make that special emotional connect with the audience but definitely doesn't lose out on the 'fun' quotient.‐ Hindustan Times

2.5/5 56% Minions (2015) While Minions are insanely cute and do offer you short spells of laughter, this is nothing to go bananas over.‐ Hindustan Times

3/5 72% American Sniper (2015) Bradley Cooper is nothing short of perfect.‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 0% Ungli (Unglee) (2014) Let's put it thus: Even if we were to ignore the acting skills (or the complete lack of it) of everybody who claims to be an actor in this film, there is just no way you could live peacefully with the cliched, irritating dialogues in the film.‐ Hindustan Times
