• This beautifully acted film diligently explores isolation and fear through an abusive relationship and “abnormal” man’s need to control and dominate while exploring Clare’s creepy relationship with her captor

  • …the production design, CGI, special effects, and make-up deserve an ‘A’, for portraying a world where magic lurks round the corner. Kaulder wields an Excalibur-like sword and even smiles a bit, a far cry from his unsmiling Fast and Furious persona. But he remains as tough and intensely likeable as ever.Which is a very good reason for watching The Last Witch Hunter

  • There’s some father-son bonding as both Franks get romantically involved (well, almost) with two of the femme fatales as they strive to bring the villains to justice in an adrenaline-charged thrill ride. The ladies are as lovely as the French Riviera. Stevenson is a treat to watch, Skrein is, well, ho hum. Umm, let me just say he grows on you.

  • Oorvazi Irani acquits herself well in the acting and directorial front. There is good emoting too by the supporting cast. Embellished by meaningful dialogue and exquisite (award-worthy) cinematography, ‘The Path of Zarathustra’ makes a persuasive case for modernity and progress in matters of faith and religion.

  • Director of the acclaimed Formula 1 documentary “Senna,” Kapadia uses Amy’s own words, archival footage, interviews and song tracks to flesh out his frail,bulimia-stricken subject. It breaks the heart to see her swigging straight from the bottle in the middle of a song. The tears are never far when you see pictures of her, in childhood and adulthood, with her friends Juliette Ashby and Lauren Gilbert, friends she retained all her life.

  • Lofing and Cluff resort to formulaic cliches, and while there is great (meaning spooky atmosphere) and a jump scare or three, their failure to capitalize on supporting characters like the janitor (David Herrera) and the poorly contrived ending, results in a yawn instead of a gasp.

  • …brightly coloured and laden with music, the movie is paisa vasool time pass slapstick. Small children may find some of the scenes distressing but teens and adults will enjoy the music and deciphering minionese’ (I did) a mish mash of gibberish and words from languages like Spanish, French, Swahili and I thought I even heard Marathi!

  • PP2 has romance and a great soundtrack although you won’t find memorable songs like the ones from The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and West Side Story, songs that you can go around singing all your life. However, the riff-off in the basement of a rich fan’s imposing mansion is spectacular. As is Kendrick and Snoop Dogg’s wonderful cover of Winter Wonderland.

  • But the theme of unconditional love is, vitiated, in your reviewer’s humble opinion, by the promotion of suicide and mercy killing (suggested by a doctor no less). It boggles the mind that doctors who take the Hippocratic oath to heal and save life should actually support its termination in violation of the ancient (2,500 year-old) oath which states, categorically in one section: “And I will not give a drug that is deadly to anyone if asked, nor will I suggest the way to such a counsel.” The film also indicates that Heaven awaits the good who commit suicide, again, a theologically flawed position for suicide is not the same thing as martyrdom.

  • Pacino plays the part with ease, warts and all in a feel good heartwarming story which captures the hedonistic, dissolute lifestyle of the rich and infamous.

    The talented cast of supporting actors hold their own in the presence of titan Pacino.
