Instead of adding any nuance or complexity to representations of India and Indian characters, Lion traffics in obnoxious generalisations and harmful stereotypes.
Passengers is a poorly written piece of CGI spectacle, swiftly sunk by its disturbing (and lazily handled) central ethical question.
Land of Mine
Martin Zandvliet’s LAND OF MINE is a mostly repugnant stab at the humanist war film.
THE BOSS is a smug, tacky and indefensible cavalcade of free-market conservative values dressed up in innocent buffoonery.
The long-rumored remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 masterpiece leaves a lot to be desired, a misstep of tsunamic proportions that should have skipped theatrical release altogether.
Cat Sick Blues
With an ill-considered view of online and rape cultures, CAT SICK BLUES is a moronic slog that sunders its ability to entertain as a slasher or engage as a horror allegory.

The latest offering from the inconsistent Blumhouse productions team is a misguided and pointless exercise in found-footage cliche, an overwhelmingly underwhelming theatrical outing from Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing.
