Ant-Man and the Wasp movie review: Having delivered a surprise hit with 2015 film Ant-Man, director Peyton Reed again banks on the fact that the biggest strength of his Marvel superhero is his ordinariness and likeability.
Isle of Dogs movie review: Isle of Dogs is disappointing, in the stereotypes it wields, in the history it seems not to care for, in the clever jokes it can't resist succumbing to, and ultimately in its treatment of the four-legged species it seems devoted to.
Sicario Day of the Soldado movie review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado really comes alive, in the blood, sweat and tears of the Mexicans seeking "paradiso", one way or another, across an increasingly dangerous border.
Incredibles 2 movie review: The highest points of the film and its acutest observations -- even if predictable -- remain Mr Incredible Bob Parr's struggles with reconciling to the success of his wife, Elastigirl Helen, in a new superhero role.
Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom movie review: It's a film of our times. As scientists underline that we are now into the 'Anthropocene epoch' -- or a human-influenced age, for the first time in Earth's history -- and as man plays God with nature, Fallen Kingdom does well to catch on.
You Were Never Really Here movie review: The Joaquin Phoenix starrer is disturbingly stylised given that it is dealing with a crime of such nature -- eventually leading up to a resolution that is almost too easy when all it has done is ask us to toughen up.
High Jack review: As is the bane of many a Hindi film, High Jack repeats one joke too many, and in seeking an ending where its characters all look good in that much-told rich-vs-poor tale, does ultimate injustice to them.
Deadpool 2 movie review: It is all too confusing in the beginning, and much too smart at times — again — for its own good. But as Ryan Reynolds gets other people to match his wits against, Deadpool 2 starts hitting the spots it wants too, much more effortlessly than its prequel.
Hope Aur Hum movie review: Hope Aur Hum doesn't believe in subtlety when it comes to drumming home its message of old giving way to the new, saddling Naseeruddin Shah with the burden of making audiences hope that, surely, there is something better around the corner.
Raazi movie review: Meghna Gulzar paces the film well, fleshing out the characters who make up the Sayed family, into which Sehmat is married, and then gradually turning up the tension as the bride’s cover wears thin.
102 Not Out review: No doubt it's great to see a film about two old people. But we have seen both Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor in that avatar in better films (Piku especially, and in Kapoor & Sons) before this.
Omerta review: Hansal Mehta's Omerta, starring Rajkummar Rao, is a surprisingly passion-less, rote incident-by-incident telling of the story of a man who is part of one of the most shameful chapters in India’s terror history.
Avengers Infinity War review: As Thanos sits with "glorious sunshine" playing on his face -- a sad fellow eventually after getting what he wanted -- the second part of this cinematic battle is already on the drawing board somewhere..
Submergence review: The film throws the might of two good actors, some metaphysical questions, some ocean bio-mathematics, a lot of schmoozing by candlelight, and some very lame dialogue trying to encapsulate this world, that world, and the other world, all into some words.
Rampage review: We have seen experiments go more spectacularly wrong before. Rampage tries to go one step further by starting with monsters in space and ending with monsters on the ground. But the film then does little with any of its three.
