Berlin Syndrome movie review: Captured- Every woman’s nightmare

The Polaroid camera is an important prop in the film. In Andi’s words, Clare documents disappointment.

Each PoV character is isolated against his vast, expansive background, compounding the loneliness of each soldier.

Baby Driver movie review: An uncluttered jukebox with cars

The most interesting aspect of the film is its setting in the early 20th century.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales movie review— Old ship in a new bottle

The dialogues lack the bite to classify as humorous, hence, a recourse to sexual innuendoes, such as ignorant puns on the word “horologist”.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword movie review— A caper disguised as an epic fantasy

One mindless fight scene in the streets of Londonium is followed by another, until they all become a blur in the viewer’s head.

The Zookeeper’s Wife movie review: The sanitisation of the Holocaust

The Jews are not given a voice; not once do they articulate their experience at the ghettos.

Ghost in the Shell movie review: A shell without a ghost...

The filmmakers seem to have tapped into the nationalistic fervour that is bubbling in every part of the world.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie review: Why this obsession with nostalgia?

The armour is not given to them to wear; the morphing comes from within, based out of mutual love and respect for the teammates.

Life movie review: Old wine with a forced plot twist

Shot with dizzying camera movements to mimic the effect of zero-gravity, the film divests its characters of a three-dimensionality.

Beauty and the Beast movie review: A remake that’s not a happily ever after

This is a very self-aware attempt by Hollywood studios to make a movie: we have a script.

Logan movie review: Inside the heart of a reluctant hero

There are a few digressions in the film that, though dispensable, seem to exist to dwell on the quasi-familial setup.

The Great Wall movie review: What was Matt Damon thinking?

The Crew movie review: A soap opera up in the air

Nikolai Lebedev’s The Crew is a film about the honour and duty that bind the crew of every airline.

The Bye Bye Man movie review: Don’t think it, don’t say it, don’t watch it

The background score tries too hard to sound frightening, and as a result, only ends up making one laugh at the ridiculousness of it.

The three stories represented in the form of beautiful water-colour paintings seamlessly blend the themes of mortality.
