• Despite the stellar cast, though, the film is weighted down by an overload of subplots, including one about a budding romance between the single mother math whiz and a veteran guardsman (Mahershala Ali). Coincidentally, both Ali and Janelle Monae also have prominent roles in Moonlight — which also hit screens this week, and is a far better bet if you’re looking for a movie that inspires.

  • Even given that videogame-to-film transfers tend to be moronic, …The Final Chapter is exceptionally unendurable.

  • The film occasionally loses momentum, especially in its exposition-heavy first half. Overall, The Founder does not amount to a gourmet meal, but it’s worth a drive-through.

  • The effects or the experience of the movie doesn’t stand anywhere in comparison to the slew of exceptional sci-fi films we have had the good fortune to witness recently. So even if you are interested in nothing but space and spaceships, I suggest you pop on a Gravity or Interstellar Blu-Ray instead.

  • There’s a campy attempt to create unnatural sexual frisson. None of the supporting actors, including the normally dependable Oliver Platt (playing a fellow therapist), brings any complexity to their roles.
    Watch Shut In at your own peril.

  • Ambitious, cerebral and profound, Arrival is a one-of- a-kind big-screen experience. The pulsating background music score by the Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson adds immensely to it, and the finale will leave you gasping in awe.

  • Suffused with cover versions of such chart-topping tunes as ‘Hello’, ‘True colours’ and ‘The sound of silence’, it also features a rousing rendition of the theme song ’Can’t stop the feeling’, by Timberlake.
    The cheerfulness of Trolls is infectious. Go for it.

  • Clocking in at a breezy 89 minutes, Storks merits the attention of its targeted kiddie audience. Adults will relate to its pleasures too.

  • The intrepid adventures of Crusoe and his band of talking animals are sanitised for family-friendly viewing. There are no references to slave trading, cannibals, religious conversions or the rampant misuse of power.
    Still, Robinson Crusoe is spirited enough to appeal to its target audience.
