Central Intelligence movie review: Central Intelligence had a chance, for the simple fact that Johnson as the CIA strapper with a golden heart and Hart as the loser who gets sucked into his world are suited to their roles.
The Nice Guys movie review: Both Russell Crowe as the washed-up, rough-edged bouncer-on-hire Healy, and Ryan Gosling as the cynical, heavy-drinking private investigator March are good and cleverly cast.
Alice Through The Looking Glass movie review: You realise that the only reason Through the Looking Glass is different from its many special-effect summer counterparts is its fascinating characters sprung from the book.
This film is more content playing on its old, successful themes, including a Windex spray, and even inveigles a wedding between Toula's still-squabbling parents under the flimsiest of pretexts to justify the title.
Julia Roberts is especially good as her role almost entirely involves emoting through her voice, but even George Clooney nicely moderates his charisma to appear desperate and downright unlikable in parts.
The Hunstman: Winter's War movie review: So why should one watch Winter's War? One wishes one could say for its star cast, impressive as it is. However, if the dazzling, imposing Theron is missing but for a few minutes of snarling venom at the end, the others are, to say the least, far from fairy-like.
There are many reasons to be worried about the moral centre of Demolition, and none of those concerns the aforesaid friend, played by Jake Gyllenhaal as a vacuous Wall Street type looking for meaning after his wife dies in an accident.
Carol movie review: While Blanchett not surprisingly is great as this very rich and polished yet dangerously brittle woman who starts off as the more confident and even a tad pushy one in the affair, Mara is a revelation as a girl who is as vulnerable as she is generous.
As someone who still halts when Jana Mana Gana is played, it gladdens my heart that revising the fundamental rights ahead of his annual examinations, my son wants to know how shouting slogans breaks any of those.
Fitoor review: Katrina Kaif starrer spares no one, not Kashmir, not Delhi, not London, not Kashmiris, and not even poor Pakistan, which somehow finds its way into this tale essentially about love traversing social divides.
The Choice movie review: Considering The Choice begins with a grim visit to the hospital and that very portentous line -- "The biggest secret of life is making decisions" -- you can guess what that actually is.
The worst part about The Boy is just when the premise starts to work, thanks in large part to praiseworthy acting by all its main protagonists particularly the boy's aged parents, director Bell loses control.
