D- 13% Life Itself (2018) Fogelman wants audiences to feel his love, but the only tools at his disposal are sap and cheese, which he hits viewers with like an errant bus driver.‐ Detroit News

C 68% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) It runs out of steam at about the midway point and falls victim to clumsy, overcooked plotting. It's fun for a while, until it becomes more trick than treat.‐ Detroit News

B 79% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) Though it's at times scattershot, it all plays into the bigger picture, which is the heated state of our current political climate.‐ Detroit News

B- 66% Lizzie (2018) Borden was a cold-blooded killer, and the handsomely crafted, at times laborious Lizzie takes a step back and examines her story in a semi-modern context. ‐ Detroit News

C+ 59% White Boy Rick (2018) It's a tale of right and wrong, greed, power and corruption. This telling gets a lot of the details right, but pulling away, the bigger picture is left rather blurred.‐ Detroit News

C 70% American Chaos (2018) Forget fake news; "American Chaos" is yesterday's news.‐ Detroit News

C- 34% The Predator (2018) If anything, the release of "The Predator" is a great excuse to re-watch the original.‐ Detroit News

C- 11% Peppermint (2018) A low-grade piece of vigilante trash that she should be above.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
D 43% Destination Wedding (2018) Levin is determined to make you loathe his characters, and for the most part, he succeeds. Set this RSVP on fire.‐ Detroit News

C+ 59% Operation Finale (2018) The markings here are of a fiery potboiler, but "Operation Finale" never ignites.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
D+ 65% The Little Stranger (2018) Some strangers aren't worth getting to know, and this is one of them.‐ Detroit News

B 81% Juliet, Naked (2018) It's got heart and laughs in equal measure, and it sings a sweet, sweet song.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
C 85% The Wife (2018) It's a fault of the script, not the actors, that "The Wife" hangs on such a preposterous through line.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
B+ 93% Searching (2018) That a thriller would come along utilizing these ideas was inevitable. What's unexpected is that it would be done so well.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
B 100% 40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie (2018) A heartfelt documentary about a band that never made it big, or made it at all.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
A- 83% Puzzle (2018) Turtletaub's direction and the trio of ace performances make "Puzzle" feel relatable and real; it's one of those movies where everything truly comes together.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
B- 22% The Happytime Murders (2018) The gags work, for awhile at least, and Berger's script is sharp enough that it never lets its juvenile edges get the best of it.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
C 87% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) A timid drama with a passive voice that doesn't align with the importance of its subject matter.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
D+ 0% Breaking & Exiting (2018) "Breaking & Exiting" is mostly insipid, with the arrogant, charmless Harry embodying the film's self-satisfied spirit.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
A- 93% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) It simply tells an endearing story in an exceptional way. And in so doing, it shows how great stories cross barriers and wind up enriching the world around us.‐ Detroit News

D 23% Mile 22 (2018) "Mile 22" is drunk on its own macho shadow conspiracy nonsense, tossing out so much double speak and inside jargon that it forgets there's an audience out there that doesn't know these people, who they are or how they operate.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
C 60% Dog Days (2018) Woof, woof.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
B- 46% The Meg (2018) Jason Statham takes on a giant shark in "The Meg," a fun-dumb splash of summer popcorn entertainment that manages to be more fun than dumb.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
D+ 7% Slender Man (2018) It doesn't add up to much more than a shoulder shrug. Perhaps that's one way to kill off Slender Man: make his story so dull that no one cares.‐ Detroit News

B 95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Lee is a true auteur, and at 61, he remains a defiant, daring, gutsy, visionary filmmaker.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
D- 0% Death of a Nation (2018) D'Souza quotes Hitler (played by Pavel Kríz) in one scene as saying, "if you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed." It's a concept D'Souza has taken to heart.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
C- 49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) The lack of chemistry between the leads and the weakness of the comedy hurts Fogel's cause.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
D+ 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) "The Darkest Minds" is in desperate need of a spark, any spark. References to "Watership Down" and "Harry Potter" only serve to show how far this film is from the classics it admires.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
C 70% Christopher Robin (2018) Christopher Robin shows it's not easy to update a classic. In this case, doing nothing would have been the best thing to do.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
D 13% 14 Cameras (2018) "14 Cameras" is simply a perv fantasy pretending to be something more than the icky piece of filmmaking that it is.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
B 90% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) It is aimed at elementary schoolers, but is sharp and light enough that any fan of the superhero genre will enjoy its take on the comic universe and its pokes at superhero conventions.‐ Detroit News

A 98% Eighth Grade (2018) "Eighth Grade" aces the test.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
A- 93% Blindspotting (2018) "Blindspotting" is directed with fervor by first-timer Carlos López Estrada, who brings its simmering tensions to a boil without letting the pot overflow.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
A 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Bless this franchise, we're truly not worthy.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
C+ 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) A less-muddled script could have rescued "The Equalizer 2" from the summer blahs, but as it is, we'll just have to accept it for its strengths while acknowledging its flaws.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
B 80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) This sequel plays like a familiar song covered by a lesser artist, but the good parts are still intact. If you're in the mood for a dance, take the chance.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
C 57% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) Susco makes even the dulcet tones of a Skype alert sound menacing. Beyond that, it has no message to offer other than don't mess with the dark web.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
B- 76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) Cartoonist John Callahan is given an appropriately unorthodox remembrance in Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot, an off-kilter biopic about an off-kilter guy.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
B+ 100% Leave No Trace (2018) It covers difficult ground, but to say it leaves no trace would be a lie. It definitely makes its mark.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2018
A- 93% Sorry to Bother You (2018) An absurdist, startlingly original Molotov cocktail through the pane glass window of Hollywood, "Sorry to Bother You" is a riot, the year's craziest comedy and the most demented call to arms in memory.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2018
C- 46% Skyscraper (2018) All "Skyscraper" has going for it is a tall building.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2018
54% The First Purge (2018) Director Gerard McMurray stages an effective game of cat and mouse and ramps up to an effective climax.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
B 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) "Day of the Soldado" is at its best when it sticks to its own raw brand of truth.‐ Detroit News

C 62% Uncle Drew (2018) Strip away the makeup and the basketball court is all but empty.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
A 89% American Animals (2018) "American Animals" is one of the year's smartest, most captivating films, and Layton stages it with the precision of a perfect crime.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2018
C+ 34% The Catcher Was A Spy (2018) If it wasn't a true story, it would be ridiculous. But the problem with Ben Lewin's film isn't the plausibility of the storyline, it's the execution of the plot, which comes off like a stiff noir rather than a crackling thriller.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2018
C 49% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The wow factor of the "Jurassic Park" series is long gone, replaced by a routine sense of tedium. Close the park for good already.‐ Detroit News
