• What Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ultimately is all about is family and the central human yearning to find its tribe. And while other superheroes may be busy saving the world and smashing buildings and entire planets to the ground, the guardians are just trying to find themselves and where they belong, saving the world along the way. And if you think about it, aren’t we all?

  • All in all, a more than interesting attempt at creating a character driven reboot that talks well, both, to newcomers and old fans, Power Rangers is a must-watch this weekend.

  • Apart from the final denouement, a thrilling, bold risk taken by director Daniel Espinosa and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (most famous for last year’s Deadpool), Life dies a quiet death for its lazy writing and an uninspired plot.

  • Watch this movie if you’re ready to endure creepy-crawlies fight each other repeatedly against a scenic backdrop for two hours.

  • Logan is simple proof of just how much good an R-rating can do for a film. Because haven’t we all dreamt of how great it would be to watch Wolverine REALLY use his claws? In James Mangold’s Logan, Hugh Jackman’s much older Wolverine, who despite saying he’s left behind the world of violence, leaves a body count higher than all of his previous movies combined. He also swears a lot, has an alcohol problem, and is consumed by rage and bitterness.

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sets the benchmark of how a good standalone film can be made without ruining a tight story with unnecessary sequels; compact, forceful, well-intentioned and hugely entertaining, the film is a story for the ages.

  • All in all, director Justin Lin’s take on J.J. Abrams’ reboot of the franchise, while taking it back to basics, fails to do little else but give you the faint promise of excitement, but never fully delivering.

  • The movie’s strength lies in Jones’ earnestness and his ability to add heart and grit to, let’s face it, a story that we’ve seen over and over in fantasy films across the ages. That said, Warcraft is a welcome change from all the superheroes in spandex and capes that we’ve been inundated with since the beginning of the year. Not since the last Hobbit film have fantasy genre fans had anything significant to really sink their teeth into. And hopefully, Warcraft, in its promised sequels, will rise up to that challenge. (Someone also hand them the diversity handbook, please.)

  • All in all, Apocalypse feels like the rise of a new generation of X-Men characters that could easily take the franchise to new heights of glory, if only Singer works hard at keeping things tight. Watch it once.

  • Two pouty man-children with obvious daddy issues, Batman and Superman fail to ever truly be the heroes they are. And crushed under the weight of creating a Marvel-esque DC franchise, Batman v Superman fails to ever truly tap into the potential that a clash between two of the most revered superheroes of all time should technically provide.
