The Lost City of Z movie review: James Gray appears to have a good thing going, with Charlie Hunnam, a blond, strikingly and traditionally good-looking actor who grows on you, hitting all the right notes with Fawcett.
Alien Covenant movie review: Michael Fassbender the actor of the perfect composure (a bang-on description, by a character in the film), is superb again, even when all the flying, fighting, flirting and fuming are being done.
The Salesman movie review: In this delicately crafted story of life, marriage, everyday violence -- and kindness -- writer-director Asghar Farhadi proves once again that there are few filmmakers like him in turning the camera inwards.
Beauty and the Beast movie review: Beauty and the Beast remain safe and secure within its Disney-defined dimensions; its infantile proclamations about a gay character and mixed race couples even further underlining what goes for risk-taking in that world.
The Ghazi Attack movie review: Rana Daggubati and Kay Kay Menon film could have been an engrossing crisis-at-sea drama but the film is so busy slaying Pakistanis that it loses sight of its core strengths.
The Founder movie review: The Founder focuses too much on the business side of things -- including a passing reference to Coke sponsorship of menus -- to give us an insight into the man whose ambition now feeds "1% of the world's population" at any given time.
xXx Return of Xander Cage review: They do grapple in zero gravity and amidst heavy Detroit traffic, though, all in the name of keeping this super-secretive super-surveillance government tool under the radar.
Passengers movie review: With space travel offered up as the new adventure tour, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are actually accidental astronauts. And that is a real disservice to the impressive science of Passengers.
Sing movie review: Who doesn't like to watch a tired old mom or a repressed young son come unshackled on stage? Sing understands this well, and so does little more than putting each one of them on stage one by one.
