• Bay may have anthropomorphised hunks of metal in five smash-bash Transformer films. But it’s Knight who has injected heart and soul into that robot body.

  • Though flawed and excruciatingly long, DC’s latest packs enough punch to keep Aquaman fans hooked.

  • A seamless blend of disparate aesthetics and an universally touching tale makes Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse incredibly refreshing

  • The second of the Fantastic Beasts series is heavy on the head but easy on the eye

  • A giant Oscar-worthy leap for Damien Chazelle…

  • Venom is a treat only because of Hardy but try as he might (he does very much so), the actor cannot shoulder the disappointing film.

  • If the dismal unravelling of the film’s plot isn’t oppressive enough, its tone-deaf screenplay will dance on every last nerve. The comic relief is centred around an ex-military man’s Tourette’s syndrome. Director Black not only let his friend, a known sex offender, be a part of his film but he allowed lines like “tone down the psychosis” and “his son is retarded” to make the final cut. The Predator is a let down on so many counts that any and all redeeming factors go unnoticed while its mammoth flaws haunt your memory long after this debacle of a film is over.  

  • There’s random sex, flirtation and dropping of the sari pallu — none of which is aesthetically pleasing. The film has no memorable songs either and even fails to move you with a cover of the popular Lata Mangeshkar song, Lag Ja Gale. With a hint of another sequel, either Dhulia takes a hard look at the relevance of this franchise, or convinces Salman Khan for a ‘he is the bhai’ edition and mint money.

  • McQuarrie who has also written Fallout, crafts a rewarding blockbuster, succeeding in pushing the envelope with the right dose of humour, an unprecedented amount of action and an explosive bang’s worth of entertainment for your buck.

  • As is obvious, Skyscraper’s premise is pretty stretched. Plus, a suspension of disbelief is imperative to avoid sniggering at director Rawson Marshall Thurber’s audacious stunts. But in the end, that inevitable, pesky gasp will creep in when Sawyer’s hand slips on a railing and he’s dangling thousand feet in the air.
