• ‘Passengers’ is an enjoyable sci-fi yarn but a creepy romance
    The chemistry between Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence helps dilute the sinister overtones in Morten Tydlum’s movie.

  • With little new material to explore after eight films, the journey to the end point has become less and less interesting.

  • Chazelle directs the film with the movie-geek obsession of Quentin Tarantino and things could have easily gone wrong with an over reliance on callbacks to those classic films. But he is able to maintain enough distance from his influences to infuse the story with touches of realism that ground it while at the same time maintaining a sense of playful whimsy that made its forebears so successful.

  • ‘Moana’ is Disney with a difference…The directors behind ‘Aladdin’ and ‘The Little Mermaid’ explore Samoan culture for this musical adventure.

  • There is enough escapist entertainment, from well-staged battle sequences and signature British wit to explorations of Scamander’s never-ending suitcase (occasionally hampered by stodgy CGI), to make the film perfectly primed for the dreary times in which humanity finds itself.

  • Much of the film is a cat-and-mouse game between the zombies and the humans. The fight scenes lack the visceral punch that would make them interesting and the emotional moments are at times corny and overtly dramatic.

  • The religious leader seems to be able to churn out his propaganda films at an incredibly fast pace, much to the misfortune of the filmgoing public who are not his followers. A sequel, Lionheart 2, is in the works, which the end credits promise is coming soon to a cinema near you.
