• Chef is palatable feel-good fare whose recipe has smatterings of moving performances and dashes of rib-tickling humour.

  • Zero Dark Thirty is a well-made film in terms of production values. But apart from portraying the single-minded zeal of a CIA woman for the head of the perpetrator of one of the most horrific terror attacks in US history, the script offers little by way of subtext or commentary.

  • In a world where religion is viewed as an anthropological tailbone and a stumbling block in the way to a better tomorrow, Life of Pi is a well-told parable which offers scoffers a non-intelligence-insulting perspective. A visually captivating but subtlely written film with great performances, Life of Pi makes for interesting viewing.

  • While the story takes a definite turn for the cloying later on, the seamless manner where it switches back and forth from the domain of quirky light-hearted comedy and probing – occasionally upsetting – emotional drama is ingenious. The performances and unerring visual grammar are some reasons why the film is one of the best of 2012 and should not be missed.

  • Probably the best set-up sci-fi film you are likely to encounter in a while, Looper is worth engaging with.
