The Batman | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz
Here’s Film Companion’s review of The Batman. The Batman is a standalone film, operating in its own continuity.

Annette Review By Anupama Chopra | Mubi | Film Companion
#Annette is accessible but also, gorgeously strange. And yet, Anupama Chopra strongly recommend that you give it a shot because this is storytelling with eccentricity, originality and jaw-dropping audacity. For which Carax won the best director award at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Watch her review here.
Eternals | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Chloe Zhao | Film Companion

The Father | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Film Companion

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings | Hollywood Movie Review | Anupama Chopra | Film Companion
Shang-Chi is the MCU’s first Asian lead, and like Black Panther, this film carries the weight of the departure from the all-white pantheon of Marvel superheroes. The writing doesn’t have the heft or depth of that film. Still, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is a strong step forward.
Godzilla vs. Kong | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Film Companion
Godzilla vs Kong is the fourth installment in a franchise called the MonsterVerse. But even if you haven’t seen those films, you won’t have any trouble connecting the dots in this one.
Without Remorse | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Michael B. Jordan
Without Remorse on @Amazon Prime Video India is an adaptation of Tom Clancy’s bestselling 1993 novel. The film attempts to speak to the reality of contemporary polarised America but the plot is too formulaic and the commentary too thin to underpin the high-octane thriller with gravitas.
NOMADLAND | Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Frances McDormand | Film Companion
Director Chloé Zhao constructs Nomadland like a mournful, sublime poem. The film stars Oscar-winning actor Frances McDormand who acts alongside real-life nomads who were featured in Bruder’s book, who play themselves. Watch the full review to know more about this globally-acclaimed film.
Evil Eye | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Film Companion
Evil Eye on @Amazon Prime Video India is more supernatural than full-blown horror and the directors toss in as much desi masala as they can. Watch Anupama Chopra`s review to know more.
Jojo Rabbit | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Taika Waititi | Scarlett Johansson

Just Mercy | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Jamie Foxx | Brie Larson
Just Mercy is a thoughtful meditation of the nature of compassion and cruelty. It’s a startling reminder that human beings are capable of both extremes. The film has been adapted from the memoir of Bryan Stevenson, a Harvard-trained lawyer, who moved to a small town in Alabama in 1989 to review charges against death row inmates.
Watch Anupama Chopra`s review of Just Mercy, directed by Destin Daniel Cretton.
1917 | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Sam Mendes | Benedict Cumberbatch
In 1917, director and co-writer Sam Mendes, co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns and DOP Roger Deakins deliver a film that combines high impact with high artistry. Lance Corporal Blake, played by Dean-Charles Chapman and Lance Corporal Schofield, played by George MacKay have a youthful bravery that is heart-breaking. Watch Anupama Chopra`s review here.
Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | George Lucas
With The Rise of Skywalker, the story that George Lucas started on May 25th, 1977 finally comes to an end. It is, as director J.J. Abrams, said the ‘trilogy of trilogies.’ The Rise of Skywalker had to be the ultimate grand finale. Sadly, the film is much less.
Knives Out | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Daniel Craig | Film Companion

Watch Anupama Chopra`s review of the film, starring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, Don Johnson and Ana de Armas.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood | Hollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Quentin Tarantino

The Lion King (Hindi) | Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Shah Rukh Khan | Aryan Khan
#TheLionKing (Hindi) is visually stunning. Director Jon Favreau said that the attempt was to make an animated film feel like a live-action film. In the Hindi version, #ShahRukhKhan and #AryanKhan are well cast. Shah Rukh’s voice of course has a wonderful familiarity. Aryan’s voice is introduced when #Simba grows up and he sounds so much like his father. Watch the review by #AnupamaChopra to know more.

Captain Marvel is the 21st film in the Marvel universe but it’s the first female-led film in the MCU.

Anupama Chopra\'s Movie Review of The Wife | Glenn Close
The Wife has been adapted by Swedish director Björn Runge from Meg Wolitzer’s 2003 novel. The plot itself is a tad contrived and not always convincing but the performances power the film, giving it an emotional grip that doesn’t let up. Joan, played masterfully by Glenn Close, resembles a calm sea that has tectonic plates shifting and a tsunami brewing beneath the surface.
