Rating Title/Year Author
Trolls World Tour (2020) S. Indra Sathiabalan Essentially this colourful musical extravaganza draws you in with its entertainment value, but also imparts a strong message that we should celebrate our differences instead of trying to force everyone to be the same. EDIT
Posted Mar 13, 2020
Onward (2020) S. Indra Sathiabalan There are not many movies out there that capture that special bond between brothers the way Onward has. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2020
Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) S. Indra Sathiabalan Birds of Prey may not have the depth and darkness of the recent Joker but it is a fun popcorn flick. EDIT
Posted Feb 7, 2020
Dolittle (2020) S. Indra Sathiabalan We all expected more from Downey, but unfortunately his Dolittle is not very likeable. EDIT
Posted Jan 24, 2020
Bad Boys for Life (2020) S. Indra Sathiabalan On the whole, Bad Boys For Life is a great popcorn flick that looks like it still has momentum for a few more sequels. EDIT
Posted Jan 24, 2020
1917 (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan The plot seems simple but it is the way the story is delivered that makes it so different from other war films. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
Cats (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan The movie's slow pacing might put off most people. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2019
Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan Unfortunately this movie's plot seems a bit forced, with a wafer thin reason for the original gang to go back into the video game. EDIT
Posted Dec 6, 2019
Frozen II (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan At a little more than 90 minutes long, the movie is short but packs a lot in terms of a main story and sub-plots. EDIT
Posted Nov 22, 2019
Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan The movie is just a little over 90 minutes long, and it is a fun ride all the way. The chemistry between the original cast is there, but [Abigail] Breslin has less to do in this movie than she did in the first one. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2019
Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan In a way, this movie is paving the way for a new franchise and bidding a fond farewell to the first two films. EDIT
Posted Oct 25, 2019
() S. Indra Sathiabalan Director Petit mixes a veteran cast with several non-professional actresses and the results are wonderful. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
Gemini Man (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan [T]he action scenes are the selling point of this film and fans of this genre will love every minute of it. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
Joker (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan This movie will hit you hard emotionally and also leave you conflicted over how you feel about the title character, who is considered one of Batman's biggest foes but also one of the most formidable villains in the entire comic-book universe. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
Ode to Joy (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan The romantic aspects also fail to move you, and as for the comedy, it is the supporting cast (Rauch and Lacy) who make you laugh. EDIT
Posted Sep 20, 2019
It: Chapter Two (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan All in, this sequel has enough scares for horror movie fans and enough drama to keep us riveted. EDIT
Posted Sep 6, 2019
Ready or Not (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan This dark comedy-horror might seem predictable in parts but it is a fun ride nonetheless, due in part to its talented cast and premise. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2019
Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan Tarantino makes sure there are no long draggy moments, and every scene will make you laugh, wonder what is going to happen next, or simply want to applaud. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
Stuber (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan There are some funny moments in the film, but the first half will grate on your nerves a bit. EDIT
Posted Aug 8, 2019

Posted Aug 6, 2019
Late Night (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan Both [Emma] Thompson and [Mindy] Kaling essentially carry this film and it is their likeability that helps you relate to the characters. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
Rocketman (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan This is the kind of stuff film buffs discuss over drinks, but for normal viewers, it can be tedious. EDIT
Posted Jul 26, 2019
The Lion King (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan All in, this is a movie that will make you laugh, then cry. Ultimately, you are left with awe at this circle of life. But like the recently-released live-action remake of Aladdin, this live-action version offers nothing new other than nostalgia. EDIT
Posted Jul 17, 2019
Crawl (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan Some elements in this film are predictable, but if you are a fan of this genre, you will have a good time. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
Toy Story 4 (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan This is a brilliant movie. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2019
Dark Phoenix (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan It offers a pretty engaging story about how even the best of intentions can lead to deadly consequences. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2019
Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan Some aspects of the story will leave you scratching your head, but the sight of Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and Rodan will get fanboys and fangirls in a tizzy. Bear McCreary's sweeping film score helped too. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan This is a fun film with memorable characters. EDIT
Posted May 30, 2019
Aladdin (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan For those who have enjoyed the animated version, this film is just as fun. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan This movie may lack the brilliant premise of the first, but fans who can't get enough of Reeves will not be disappointed. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2019
Brightburn (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan The film hits the mark in some places, but misses the mark in others. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2019
Fighting With My Family (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan Whether it is about sibling love turned into rivalry, or trying to live up to expectations, the story is relatable and you don't have to be a WWE fan to understand it. EDIT
Posted Apr 18, 2019
Missing Link (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan Though not as brilliant as Kubo and the Two Strings, this movie has enough memorable moments to make it a good watch. EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2019
Cyrano, My Love (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan How it all comes together despite the mishaps along the way makes this a very enjoyable watch. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2019
Project Gutenberg (Mo Seung) (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan It has a plot with lots of twists and a director who is able to keep you interested even when some aspects of the plot do not make much sense. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Where am I going? (2016) S. Indra Sathiabalan Zalone is funny and essentially carries the film with his antics, opinions, and how his character does everything he can to remain in his job. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Halloween (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan The movie's pace is good and there are even a few homages to the first film. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan The sets are lavish, the colors are vibrant, and the ballet sequences are good. That's about it. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan I love this movie. This is the kind of film you go with friends who love Queen's music as much as you do. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Alpha (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan Though the humans speak in a language that requires subtitles, the actors do manage to convey their emotions very well. Go in with no expectations, and enjoy this movie for what it is. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Searching (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan The director deserves praise for keeping us on the edge of our seats throughout the movie, and also for getting Cho and Messing (who are better known for comedic roles) to deliver what are probably their career-best performances. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Smallfoot (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan This is a fun film that the whole family can enjoy. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Venom (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan Despite having some great talents involved, the film lacks any sort of depth to make it memorable. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan This is one of those movies where you have to suspend belief for a while and just enjoy the ride. Some movies are just not meant to be taken seriously. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Billionaire Boys Club (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan While this version may actually be closer to the real-life incidents that took place, it is still a bit of a draggy affair. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Skyscraper (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan This is essentially a Die Hard wannabe flick that lacks depth, but attempts to get by using the global appeal of its leading man, Johnson. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan The actors, especially Del Toro, really carry this film while director Stefano Sollima has delivered an engrossing drama. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Christopher Robin (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan The story is interesting, but the only warmth we can feel is between the loving nanny and her ward. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Rampage (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan Lots of things in the movie lack logic but the target audience is not really going to care. This is monster mayhem all the way. EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
Gringo (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan Oyelowo is well cast in his role as a man who gets tired of being kicked around, and the stuff he has to resort to in order to survive are not only funny, but also believable. EDIT
