The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies English Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  CNN IBN | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-7
It's hard not to be overcome with nostalgia while watching The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the last chapter in Peter Jackson's trilogy of The Lord of the Rings prequels, and the presumed end to his massively successful journey through Middle Earth that began 13 years ago.

  •  Times Of India | Review By -Reagan Gavin Rasquinha Rating-8
When Bilbo, Thorin and gang watched in fear as Smaug (Cumberbatch) flew away to torch Lake Town, little did they realize that their leader Thorin was going mad thanks to 'dragon sickness', lust for the castle's gold and the Arkenstone. He now refuses leave the castle or even

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Navin Noronha Rating-6
Saying goodbye to our favorite movie franchise can be very tough. You realize that this is the last time you will see the characters on-screen, and the last time you will be a part of their story. When The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ended, all of us were transfixed albeit with a huge

  •  Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-8
There’s a bit of Gandalf in Peter Jackson. Not just because he makes magic with CGI but like the wise wizard, the filmmaker follows his reliable instincts and is game for impossible challenges. Such gamble may not lead to consequences as significant as restoring peace in Middle Earth but the

  •  India Today | Review By -Rohit Khilnani Rating-7
Peter Jackson's The third and final instalment of the hobbit series, The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies is the big Hollywood release of the week. The film starts exactly where the previous film The Desolation Of Smaug ended. Smaug voiced wonderfully by Benedict Cumberbatch is on a rampage.

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Soumya Srivastava Rating-8
Often we are told of how third parts always spoil the whole franchise and it is not without cause (read Spiderman 3, Iron Man 3, Transformers). The only man to walk through the litmus test was Peter Jackson with Lord of the Rings: Return of the King and now again with The Hobbit

  •  Indian Express | Review By -Shalini Langer Rating-4
And so it ends. After five films, 13 years and at least 17 Academy awards, the tale of Middle Earth on the big screen has drawn to a close. You could say about time. ‘The Hobbit’ had already started running out of steam by The Desolation of the Smaug last year, and among the few good things

  •  Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Lakshmi Javeri Rating-7
So I’m going to come straight to the point and admit that I’m not a big fan of Jackson’s move to convert a tiny book like The Hobbit into a celluloid trilogy. I’ve been a lover of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works despite Silmarillion, and have loved how Jackson has taken the feted writer’s imagination

  •  DNA | Review By -Bryan Durham Rating-8
The final chapter in the epic The Hobbit trilogy, this film starts with the death of Smaug (Cumberbatch) at the hand of of Bard (Evans) of Laketown. The city is burnt to the ground but the surviving townsfolk make it out and head to Dale to seek refuge and a settlement from the Dwarves led by

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Rashid Irani Rating-6
It’s the end of an era. The third and final instalment of the second Middle Earth trilogy based on the works of JRR Tolkien brings the journey of the heroic hobbit named Bilbo Baggins (Freeman) to a stirring conclusion. It also wraps up writer-director Peter Jackson’s six-film opus, begun at the turn

Lingaa Tamil Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  Times Of India | Review By -M Suganth Rating-5
Lingaa begins with the murder of a government official inspecting a dam, and then the action cuts to Lingaa (Rajinikanth), a small-time criminal, who is in prison with his cohorts ( Santhanam, Karunakaran and co). They are taken out on bail by Lakshmi ( Anushka), a TV reporter

  •  Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-6
Like all his films, ‘Lingaa’ is basically three hours of Rajini Saar doing his thing. And it is three hours of full-on `masti’ and ‘mazaa': no half-measures for the man who just has to walk across the screen in slo-mo to send his fans into paroxysms. To watch a Rajini flick with subtitles

  •  Rediff | Review By -Raja Sen Rating-6
You can tell just how vintage a film aspires to be by the films it steals from. KS Ravikumar's Lingaa may be set in today for the most part. But as an opening heist -- borrowed moronically yet loyally from Peter O'Toole and Audrey Hepburn's How To Steal A Million -- shows us

  •  Rediff | Review By -Saisuresh Sivaswamy Rating-6
At almost three hours Lingaa is perhaps a tad too long, but the producer and director’s compulsions are understandable. THE Superstar, as Rajinikanth is known to his legion of followers worldwide, returns to the silver screen in flesh and blood after a three-year hiatus (Shankar’s Endhiran

  •  India Today | Review By -TS Sudhir Rating-7
Lingaa by KS Ravikumar claims to star Rajinikanth in a double role. That of Lingaa a super clever thief and his grandfather, Raja Lingeswaran. But the overpowering presence is that of Rajinikanth himself in the third role. There are so many references to Rajini the person that the real

  •  Hindsutan Times | Review By -Gautaman Bhaskaran Rating-5
Much like the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, MG Ramachandran, who used cinema to play a do-gooder, propagating Dravidian doctrine, Rajinikanth has often essayed characters with strong political overtones. Of course, there is a difference between these two men.

  •  Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Anupama Subramanian Rating-6
‘Lingaa’ is an exciting return for the superstar onto the big screen in live action. And this time, it's most certainly not a lacklustre computer animation. Directed by KS Ravikumar, the movie works well for its making rather than for the script alone which offers nothing new.

  •  NDTV | Review By -Uma Sudhir Rating-6
The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell is the introductory shot in Lingaa for Rajini in his avatar as a collector and king in British India. The Super Star has a dual role and plays his own grandson too, in the modern era. But all through the film, sometimes subtly and mostly upfront, Rajini

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Raisa Nasreen Rating-6
Fans of the superstar are bound to be happy, as the Superstar’s film releases after a hiatus of 4 years. His ever-growing fan base is certainly going to be content for 2 reasons: The film releases on the occasion of the superstars’s birthday and it film celebrates their idol Rajinikanth.

  •  CNN IBN | Review By -Prajakta Hebbar Rating-6
Through his numerous films, interviews and his illustrious career, many Rajinikanth fans have asked the quintessential question that has given birth to several legendary folklores - is there nothing Rajini can't? 'Lingaa' seems to have been made to answer that very question. Twice.

  •  Rediff | Review By -S Saraswathi Rating-5
The Rajinikanth-K S Ravikumar association has previously produced such huge blockbusters as Muthu (1995) and Padayappa (1999). So, expectations were sky high for their latest venture together. Viewers expected another Padayappa, but, unfortunately, Lingaa is not in the same league.

  •  Bangalore Mirror | Review By -RS Prakash Rating-6
Looks like it's the season of politically loaded flicks laced with social messages in Kollywood. If Vijay has done it in Murugadoss's Kaththi, then Rajinikanth, who is returning to the screen after four years, too has chosen to toe a similar line in the eagerly awaited Lingaa. The K S Ravikumar-directed

  •  Malayala Manorama | Review By -Nelson K Paul Rating-6
I was all ears when I walked out of the theatre after watching Rajinikanth's 'Lingaa' to find out what the others thought about the movie. A Tamil-speaking group was not happy with the film in whole, but they loved the climax. It was just the opposite for me. I was engrossed in the narrative

  •  Daily Bhaskar | Rating-5
The film narrates two stories parallely, one from the British period, and the other one from the current times. Today if we have been able to watch Lingaa without pre-booking the show, it’s been purely because we are living in North India. You can hardly imagine seeing a first show

  •  Behind Woods | Review By -BW Review Board Rating-5
Superstar Rajinikanth's birthday treat Lingaa, directed by K.S.Ravikumar hits the screens today. The film is expected to surpass the duo's earlier outings - Muthu and Padaiyappa. With a huge ensemble of support stars and Rajini in dual roles, does Lingaa live up to the immense expectations?

  •  Filmi Beat | Review By -Avinash Gopinath Rating-6
Lingaa enjoyed highest expectation for any Tamil cinema before its release in spite of being bombarded with many legal issues. The film, over the last few months not only, increased the anticipation level among Indian movie goers but had also managed to induce excitement amid foreigners.

  •  Chitramala | Review By -Kumar G Rating-6
On an average, this flick has got lot of energy for the Rajinikanth fans. If you are a die-hard fans of Rajini, you will love this flick to the core. For others, this venture looked fine with minor drawbacks. Repetition and lagging factors were seen in few scenarios. Plot looked interesting but we had

  •  Bollywood Life | Review By -Subramanian Harikumar Rating-7
If you have seen Rajini films in the past, you would know what to expect. I went into theatre expecting a fun film with a good message and plenty of Thalaivar magic. And as I came out to face the blinding sun, I have to say I was satisfied and happy with Lingaa. Go watch Lingaa right away for good

  •  Piping Hot Views | Review By -PPH Team
Albeit the presence of Rajni’s charisma and a strong storyline, a director of K.S.Ravikumar’s standards is let down by some poor quality scenes and an atrocious climax sequence. This sure isn’t one of Rajni’s best but by all means one can safely bet on the 'Rajinikanth’ factor to carry

  •  AP Herald | Rating-4
All in all, Rajinikanth performance and great locales can only hold your attention for a while. The story doesn’t progress at a pace it needs to, you will find yourself shifting in your seat, waiting for the sobbing pre-independence flashback to end. Is Lingaa on your mind? Get rid of this pronto.

  •  Indiaglitz | Rating-4
The next phase of 'Lingaa' completes the promise of a power packed Superstar movie, solving many mysteries, including the one on why the temple gates had to be thrown open all of a sudden. Now that the story is in place, let's get critical on the aspects that make the movie wholesome and complete.

  •  Movie Crow | Rating-6
The story template is no different from many of Rajinikanth's yesteryear big hits from past. The movie is narrated through a long flashback sequence focused on Raja Lingeswaram (Rajinikanth) who builds a dam/reservoir with his own money. The present day Lingaa (Rajinikanth)

  •  Only Kollywood | Rating-6
Lingaa has pleasing moments to satisfy the Rajinikanth fan in you but the cineaste in you is not properly taken care of. Unlike KS Ravikumar - Rajinikanth's previous outings, Lingaa has an unexciting storyline with less elements of thriller, but it does offer an entertaining

The Babadook English Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  Times Of India | Review By -Reagan Gavin Rasquinha Rating-7
The weirdness actually starts with the film name itself - what does 'Babadook' even mean? Is it a child's made-up word for a beast hiding under the bed or lurking in the shadows at night? Perhaps an entity from the land of nightmares or maybe a physical manifestation of Amelia's inner demons?

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Juhi Matta Rating-7
When the director of The Exorcist describes a movie as the most terrifying film he has ever seen, you know you’re in for a ride. Despite that, The Babadook will surprise you with just how terrifying it can get. The Babadook revolves around Amelia (Essie Davis), a single mother whose son

  •  Indian Express | Review By -Shalini Langer Rating-8
All she wants is a good night’s sleep. Ask any mother of a child under 10 how difficult that is, and you can read all of the helplessness in Amelia’s (Davis) eyes. She is a single mother juggling work and a demanding child, and trying to catch up at both. But why isn’t Amelia getting enough sleep?

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Rashid Irani Rating-7
An unsettling housebound horror tale, Jennifer Kent’s debut feature is an expansion of her black-and-white short, Monster. Without resorting to cheap scare tricks in the movie, the Australian actress-turned-writer and director builds up an incremental sense of dread that leads to some

  •  Deccan Herald | Review By -Ashwin Haldipur Rating-8
Sam believes in an imaginary monster called Mr Babadook and spends his time fighting the monster with his catapult and trying to convince Amelia of its existence. Amelia works as a nurse at a senior citizen’s facility and with a hyperactive child, is sleep-deprived. “Rubbish, there’s no
