Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
61% Motherless Brooklyn (2019) Written, produced, directed by and starring Edward Norton, Motherless Brooklyn is the sort of passion project that is made only when someone loses a bet. That, or Norton had some quality dirt on a top-level Warner Bros executive.‐ Hindustan Times

92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) Both as a racing drama and as an excellent example of the sort of movie that Martin Scorsese believes isn't made anymore, Ford v Ferrari is exquisite. ‐ Hindustan Times

77% Doctor Sleep (2019) There is a great movie inside Doctor Sleep somewhere, but just like the decency inside Danny Torrance's heart, it perhaps needed to be coaxed out.‐ Hindustan Times

71% The King (2019) Stately and serene, The King is a rather demanding period drama that is given a necessary jolt of adrenaline by a truly anarchic Robert Pattinson performance. ‐ Hindustan Times

72% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Breakneck, blasé, and browner than usual, Terminator: Dark Fate is a prime example of sneaky Hollywood self-plagiarism.‐ Hindustan Times

59% The Current War: Director's Cut (2019) The acne on Tom Holland's face gives an indication of just how badly The Current War has been delayed.‐ Hindustan Times

97% Dolemite Is My Name (2019) Had Rudy Ray Moore been depressed, mentally ill (and white), he might have turned into the Joker.‐ Hindustan Times

54% Wounds (2019) The premise sounds like something a peeved off parent would come up with to get their teenage child to play outdoors more often.‐ Hindustan Times

42% The Laundromat (2019) It is a sign of my limited imagination, more than any evidence Steven Soderbergh has provided through his filmography, that when I first heard about The Laundromat, I visualised a thrilling exposé of the Panama Papers scandal.‐ Hindustan Times

69% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) I wonder how Double Tap's iffy right-wing streak will go down with modern viewers. At one point, in fact, a gun-nut character even yells out, "Thank God for the rednecks!"‐ Hindustan Times

60% Fractured (2019) Brad Anderson can direct films like Fractured - his latest, out on Netflix - in his sleep. So as a fan of his work, it came as a bit of a letdown that the filmmaker appeared to have done just that.‐ Hindustan Times

90% El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Playing out like a two-hour-long post-credits scene, El Camino is an unexpected but not entirely unnecessary new chapter in the Breaking Bad saga.‐ Hindustan Times

26% Gemini Man (2019) To be considered effectively entertaining, Gemini Man needed to be at least 30% better, or at least 20% worse.‐ Hindustan Times

88% Diego Maradona (2019) Asif Kapadia gives football's flashiest figure the true-crime treatment.‐ Hindustan Times

37% In the Tall Grass (2019) Going by the spectacular fashion in which In the Tall Grass derails midway yet cheerfully carries on, I wouldn't be surprised if director Vincenzo Natali shrugged off his (and the film's) problems by smoking some of that fine grass around him.‐ Hindustan Times

60% In the Shadow of the Moon (2019) The twists in this film aren't as shocking as they are underwhelming. This isn't to say that they are predictable, but that these story beats could have been handled more elegantly. ‐ Hindustan Times

69% Joker (2019) I find it ridiculous that the same people who reject the notion of movies being responsible for inciting real-life violence are the ones panicking about Joker inspiring mass shooters. ‐ Hindustan Times

88% Hustlers (2019) Hustlers is a tremendously entertaining film, but it is also deceptively deep, with singles of wisdom slipped under its glittery g-strings. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2019
27% Rambo: Last Blood (2019) Loud, full of hot air, but perversely watchable, Sylvester Stallone's sequel might become Donald Trump's favourite movie.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2019
88% Ready or Not (2019) Funnier than most comedies and scarily thought-provoking when it needs to be, Ready or Not is a sneaky little surprise. It establishes Samara Weaving not only as a scream queen for a new generation, but also, in my opinion, a star.‐ Hindustan Times

89% Blinded by the Light (2019) Javed Khan is not only a beacon for representation - for South Asians and Muslims and immigrants - but also for a different kind of male movie 'hero'. He cries; he runs away from fights; he is a poet and a gentleman. We could do with more like him.‐ Hindustan Times

63% It Chapter Two (2019) Unbearably long yet brimming with ambition, It Chapter Two is a film that seems constantly at odds with itself‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 41% 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019) The film is a testament to the depressing reality that no matter how amazing an original idea might be, Hollywood will always roll its eyes back in ecstasy at the slightest whiff of a franchise, no matter how poorly conceived. ‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 73% The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019) Featherbrained foolishness; spare your kids.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2019
3/5 83% Crawl (2019) The film's lean and mean plot could easily inspire one of those popular 'Florida Man' headlines, because like most good horror pictures, it begins with an act of blinding stupidity.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2019
1/5 22% The Kitchen (2019) I'm convinced it exists only because Warner Bros had already invested in erecting '70s era New York sets for their Joker movie. So, 'screw it', they thought, and to maximise returns decided to allow director Andrea Berloff to film during off hours.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Ironically for a film about the movies, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is far less kind to historical figures as it is to fictional characters such as Rick and Cliff.‐ Hindustan Times

4/5 81% Brexit (2019) Whether or not if any of this is true is beyond me, but there is something distressingly cynical about the story, which is perhaps fitting for the times we live in. Cummings could have chosen either side, but he made a decision, didn't he?‐ Hindustan Times

2/5 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) It's one thing for huge movie stars to tailor a film around themselves, but it's a whole new thing if that movie star essentially hijacks a pre-established (and universally beloved) franchise without honouring its legacy in any meaningful way.‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 30% The Red Sea Diving Resort (2019) Raff, despite his noble intentions, paints his film, ever so lightly, with the brush of propaganda.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2019
3/5 53% The Lion King (2019) The new Lion King is like a deeply triggering and very expensive episode of Planet Earth narrated by Childish Gambino, here to traumatise a whole new generation of viewers.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 63% Yesterday (2019) The lead character didn't have to be brown. Danny Boyle simply hired the best man for the role, and not, as history has conditioned us into expecting, the best white man for the role.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2019
3/5 90% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) A passable postscript to Avengers Endgame, but a marvellous ode to Tony Stark. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jul 4, 2019
2.5/5 64% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Annabelle Comes Home is neither here nor there - too generic for hardcore horror fans to enjoy, and desperately lacking in jump scares, which is sure to dissatisfy longtime fans of the franchise.‐ Hindustan Times

4.5/5 97% Toy Story 4 (2019) It is at this point that we must ask ourselves, how much of a good thing is too much?‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2019
2/5 59% The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir (2019) Like its hero, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir's intentions are pure, but it is, in its heart of hearts, far too reliant on the same old tricks, always on the lookout for the next chump to con.‐ Hindustan Times

1/5 23% Men in Black International (2019) MiB: International is like going to a famous chef's restaurant, and learning that they died, years ago.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2019
4/5 90% I Am Mother (2019) The benefits of saving humanity are debatable, but with artificial intelligence capable of birthing children in the future, is there any point in preserving men?‐ Hindustan Times

1.5/5 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) It made me wish for the days of Bryan Singer, and that's unforgivable.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
2/5 20% Chopsticks (2019) Like the inconvenient cutlery it is named after, there's little reason to try it if there are alternatives to be found.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 30, 2019
3/5 90% Always Be My Maybe (2019) Always Be My Maybe, the latest and best film in Netflix's Summer of Love (2019 edition), is excessively dedicated to the rules of rom-coms, but it is also quietly effective, and empowering in subtle and smart ways.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 30, 2019
4.5/5 73% The Perfection (2019) The Perfection is precisely the sort of gem that gets lost in the interminable glut of mediocrity these days. We will watch what we are told to watch - either by corporations or by algorithms. I am neither. So, please watch The Perfection.‐ Hindustan Times

3.5/5 57% Aladdin (2019) Despite being one of the most unambitious tentpole films of the year, the live-action Aladdin is - by far - the oddest movie that director Guy Ritchie has ever made. And remember, he once made a rom-com for his ex-wife Madonna.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 24, 2019
2/5 57% Brightburn (2019) If you're looking for films in which a superpowered child grows up to become a moody murderer, you're better off watching Looper, or, heck, even Man of Steel. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 24, 2019
4.5/5 90% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) As hyper-stylised Neo-noir action threequels go, it's damn near a masterpiece - breathtakingly beautiful to look at, mythologically dense, and featuring the best action set pieces since Mission: Impossible - Fallout. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 17, 2019
3.5/5 68% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) It cured me of my millennial depression. It also advised me on where to invest my savings and made me a nice dinner.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 9, 2019
3/5 66% Suspiria (2018) Director Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria remake, has so little to do with the original Dario Argento classic that it might as well drop the title and take its chances with a lawsuit. ‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted May 3, 2019
4.5/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Despite being the longest superhero film in history, and the longest film in the MCU, Avengers: Endgame is paced like Quicksilver on crack cocaine.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2019
2.5/5 29% The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Until such time as this series starts investing in good scripts, it might as well surrender itself to creepy dolls or slender men or weeping women - whichever seems hungriest at that particular moment.‐ Hindustan Times
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2019
4/5 74% Guava Island (2019) Unexpectedly but appropriately, Guava Island is a companion piece to Jordan Peele's recent horror picture, Us - dense with symbolism and metaphor.‐ Hindustan Times
