Right till the end, the film's heart remains in the right place, whether it's the brief moments Peter can steal for MJ, the times he reaches out for someone to talk to, and the short sequence that shows he is ready to be what the film always intended him to be: Tony Stark.
Annabelle Comes Home movie review: As Annabelle Comes Home drags on and on without turning up the chill factor, you wonder whether Gary Dauberman, directing for the first time but a well-settled collaborator in Conjuring films, has run out of scares.
Toy Story 4 movie review: Even for Pixar, this fourth part seems a lazy concession to the exigencies of a profitable enterprise — though the studio with the magic touch does even this better than most.
X-Men Dark Phoenix movie review: This superhero film gives us a heroine who is unapologetically strong, stronger than all the men in the room, sturdier than the one she is in love with, with no feminine qualities to make her go down easy with the audiences.
Melissa McCarthy loses herself in the role of a woman who showers more love on a cat than anybody, including herself. But it is Richard E Grant who is stunning, especially in one of his last shots, which feels like a genuine goodbye.
Taron Egerton is an inspired choice to play the flamboyant rock star, and more than physical resemblance, the actor goes for capturing Elton's essence, as the film pans outside the studios to film his hits against settings that could have been a possible inspiration.
Long Shot movie review: Long Shot may fall short as a political commentary, it surprisingly turns up a warm little rom-com about an investigative journalist who looks like Rogen and a Secretary of State making her presidential bid who looks like Theron.
Brightburn movie review: It may be no coincidence that several names behind this film, from director Yarovesky and writers Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn, to child actor Dunn, are variously associated with the ever-expanding universe of super-men and women.
While Anne Hathaway is good on her own, and looks exquisite, her Josephine is too cold and calculated to be likable. Rebel Wilson, on the other hand, is a charm, her spontaneity and willingness to let go can have anyone genuinely fooled.
John Wick 3 movie review: The scriptwriters fiddle with the idea of authority, independence, control, and choice. But wisely, don’t tax themselves too much, sticking to the essential purpose of this franchise — showcasing Keanu Reeves at his best.
Or is it that we don’t need a “mard” at all? It took Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, new mother, probably facing the same aches and pains as many of us, to just show the courage to don a scarf and hug whom it matters, to try heal a nation’s wounds. It may not have been enough for New Zealand, but it was something.
Avengers Endgame review: Having laboured over setting up the final battle in Avengers: Infinity War, Directors Anthony and Joe Russo get their act together to give a proper, emotional, funny and, yes, even spectacular, send-off to a cast of characters we have come to know (and, mostly love) over 22 films and 10 years.
The Curse of the Weeping Woman movie review: Debutant director Michael Chaves, trying to earn his Conjuring stripes, stretches a thin story, and then some more, refusing to give either Llorana or Anna or her two children a break.
Pet Sematary movie review: Horror aficionados Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer are helped by a solid cast, who help establish the Creeds as a family who love each other and, importantly, whom we come to care for.
Hellboy movie review: David Harbour of Stranger Things does a fine enough job as the brick-red man who emerged from the depths of hell with sawed horns on the forehead, a tail and a metallic hammer-like appendage for an arm.
