• And its shortcomings notwithstanding, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is thoroughly enigmatic and essential to be experienced on the big screen.

  • ‘Doctor Strange’ is a subverted superhero film with plenty to look and laugh at.

  • In the end, the live action films are just like the books they were adapted from: quick fixes to ennui . So watch it and forget it, because it’s not memorable. But Inferno is worth one viewing.

  • For its part, The Shallows’ antagonist is an efficient CGI-created shark, not scary by itself but, like any horror film, what it’s capable of. In this case, its ability to rip a human in half, which it does in one gory instance. But the film is not just about a shark attack, it’s about fighting till the end no matter what and — clichéd as it sounds — overcoming the odds.

  • Even though Don’t Breathe does fall short sometimes, it is still a great watch to see how the prey turns into the predator.

  • You’re not going to want to leave the theatre with a sudden desire to be grateful for all your mother has done for you. Instead, you’ll never want to have children, perhaps forgo marriage altogether and live a life of singledom.

    Oh, and resolve to watch better films.

  • There’s plenty going for Star Trek Beyond when the only thing holding it back is its formulaic approach. But you don’t always have to go where no man has been before.
