Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 60% Run All Night (2015) Just when the story gets interesting -- I am talking The Godfather-soap opera interesting -- it gets blown away.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

3.5/5 64% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) Just like the picturesque little Jaipur hotel at the centre of the story, this second best instalment is still very much worth a visit.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

2/5 28% The Wedding Ringer (2015) This group of utterly unfunny, un-pretty groomsmen-weirdos is truly a sight to exorcise out of your mind immediately.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

1.5/5 17% Sex Tape (2014) Sex Tape underperforms even worse than Jay himself -- it is unfunny, predictable and very strenuous.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

3/5 49% Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014) Secret Of The Tomb -- not as good as the first movie, but not as bad as the second one either -- attempts to recapture the purposefulness of the original movie, where there was a sense of a quest.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

2.5/5 24% Tammy (2014) Presumably to expand her (McCarthy's) repertoire, there is a deliberate attempt to cut down her sweat-slob persona and soften those rough edges to test new ground here that is akin to inventing a humanitarian nuclear bomb.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

2/5 17% Incarnate (2016) Horror fans will see through everything two steps ahead.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

2.5/5 8% Shut In (2016) Alas, when you eventually do know the cause of her fears, Shut In loses its supernatural grip on you and becomes predictable.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

4/5 82% Sausage Party (2016) Who could imagine an all-out bloody massacre to be this hilarious?‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

99% The Wailing (Goksung) (2016) The ensuing suspense and the enveloping paranoia and spookiness -- stretched out by the exhaustive length of the film here -- mean that this film really sucks you in. Even better, there is a terrifically gripping payoff right at the end.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

3.5/5 79% The Conjuring 2 (2016) James Wan (also helming the upcoming Aquaman) is such an able horror master that this is still a scare flick notches above the usual fare.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

3.5/5 No Score Yet The Tag-Along (2015) The Tag-Along scores over the average chiller. It is not slack in packaging a back-story with quiet, hidden moments of personal trouble that heighten the enveloping tension.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

2.5/5 31% Daddy's Home (2015) You wait for a hint of Ferrell wickedness or a sign of potent Wahlberg meanness to really zing us, but get a high-school comedy which has been neutered to a harmless, toothless PG13 rating.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

2/5 20% Kidnapping Mr. Heineken (2015) Hopkins in captivity is always fascinating. He is not Hannibal Lecter-dangerous here, but as a stubborn captive in chains, he is still a defanged alpha male worth watching. If only we were allowed to see more of him.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)

1.5/5 11% Dirty Grandpa (2016) Director Dan Mazer takes the overaged frat-boy antics too far.‐ The Straits Times (Singapore)
