• Despite all its shortcomings, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson fans may be able to sit this through, simply because their screen presence is so magnetic and charming. Pity they’re working with such a bland script, ending in a film that seems to cater to new audiences, rather than those who grew up watching the edgier MIB movies before it.

  • The weak screenplay and script weigh down the characters with some clunky dialogue. Despite good performances, ‘Dark Phoenix’ is a letdown for several reasons, least of all because the female characters in this film take prominence, and they deserve better. So do we.

  • If Marshall’s mere intent was to shock you with excessive gore and expletives, then he manages to do that. It isn’t quite enough, especially if you leave the theatre confused about what just happened, due to a ludicrous plot. Despite McShane and Harbour’s best efforts, this exhaustive ‘end-of-the-world’ story is unable to raise as much hell as it should.

  • With two strong entries prior to it, ‘The Hidden World’ could have easily suffered from the ‘trilogy curse’ by botching up its finale. Fortunately, that’s not the case. From the first few frames, it becomes evident that DreamWorks Animation has pushed the envelope with graphics that are astounding.

  • Yes, the plot sets out to establish Carol Danvers as a bonafide bad-ass and thoroughly succeeds in the end. It’s about time Captain Marvel showed up, and the Avengers are a much stronger team with Danvers on their side. This also succeeds in getting you even more excited for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ (as if that was needed). By now, MCU fans know the drill: stick around for the end credits, and you will not be disappointed. Unfortunately, the route it takes encounters some speed bumps, courtesy of the usual superhero origin issues that have troubled the genre.

  • ‘Bumblebee’ is certainly the best example of what this franchise is meant to be, and should it continue this path, the Transformers can become exciting and enjoyable all over again.

  • Aquaman’ wouldn’t work as well if it weren’t for its hero, and while there may be other fish in the sea, (read ‘actors’), there seems to be no one better equipped to play the King of the Seven Seas than Jason Momoa. He dominates the screen with his presence and puts his own stamp on a character who has been the butt of jokes in the comic book world, to make him unquestionably cool again. That, combined with the insane action, make for convincing reasons to watch ‘Aquaman’. Go on, dive in.

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ is a bold attempt to tell one of the most ‘out there’ stories in the comic book world. It’s amazing to see all the components come together and work as well as they do. The tonality is funny, and heart-warming, while the visuals are exquisitely trippy at the same time.

  • While ‘The Grinch’ isn’t exactly groundbreaking or fresh, it has just enough Christmas magic to justify another modern retelling of an old story.

  • Especially at a time when CGI-heavy visual effects bombard us, it’s indeed heartening to experience an old-school animation film like this. It’s one of the movies that should be experienced on the big screen to truly appreciate all the intricate details that have gone into creating it step-by-step. But it’s also a movie that you’d want to own just to admire its beauty as every screenshot is a work of art worth hanging on your wall.
