• Writer & director Brad Bird believed in waiting for the right story to tell, and that decision certainly pays off in more ways than one as ‘Incredibles 2’ proves to be an Incredible amount of fun!

  • In the end, director Ron Howard manages to salvage the remnants of the production mess to a fair extent. While he plays it safe and loses some of the mythical Star Wars allure along the way, he succeeds in creating a decent sci-fi action film. ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ has enough action, CGI spectacle, and callbacks to satisfy both its old and new fans while barely justifying its addition to the franchise.

  • ‘Raazi’ defies the spy genre’s traditional expectations of full-blown action sequences. Instead, Meghna Gulzar’s steady hand gradually ramps up the tension throughout, leading to an explosive final act in this strong dramatic thriller. It also leaves you questioning the repercussions of war on the human psyche.

  • It’s a big team effort with every actor swinging for the fences. The only drawback? All the blistering action, relentless humor and plot intersections might get overwhelming to the casual viewer. But it’s all part of the plan – there’s so much to digest it warrants a second viewing. If you’ve felt we’re nearing superhero exhaustion, Marvel just went and changed the rules leaving you begging for more – proving yet again that they are the real masters of this game.

  • The only reason that the movie is bearable in the first half is because it is a comedy. But when it turns into a whodunit in the second half and a new emotional angle is introduced, it falls completely flat. Neither the performances nor an ever changing storyline, where newer characters are introduced, help pick it up. An anticlimactic, emotional ending further seals the fate of this film.

  • Majidi’s subject matter might seem to be repetitive, but the famed director’s take on redemption is fleshed out by strong performances to make ‘Beyond the Clouds’ another notable entry in his filmography.

  • A word of advice – choose your viewing partner carefully as ‘A Quiet Place’ can only be appreciated in silence with the least amount of conversation during its runtime. Better still – watch this alone (and switch off your phones), then loudly proceed to rave about this essential horror film to everyone else!

  • Devoid of the heart and soul of its predecessor, ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ aims to please hardcore fans of massive monster versus robot fights. Those seeking any depth in their action films, better look elsewhere.

  • Over the course of 2 hours 30 minutes, ‘The Square’ will either leave you wondering what you witnessed or question the principles you choose to live by. It’s disconcerting, and certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re up for cinema that isn’t run-of-the-mill, ‘The Square’ is undoubtedly out-of-the-box.
