C- 63% Suspiria (2018) I was promised a thrilling horror about a coven of witches but ended up with what seemed like a thesis on German culture in the late 1970s.‐ Alachia Queen

B 29% Venom (2018) Venom serves up a menu of spicy hard PG-13 action but also includes a well balanced sampling of scrumptiously surprising buddy humor between an unemployed reporter and a flesh eating symbiote. We're ready for the second course.‐ Alachia Queen

B+ 92% Mandy (2018) While Mandy doesn't offer anything new to the vengeance genre in terms of plot, it has an immense amount of visual imagery and symbolism that drives the film beyond your typical revenge porn into a fantastical thesis of psychosis.‐ Alachia Queen

D 33% The Predator (2018) While the violence is solid, the ludicrous science expositions that carry the plot along and unfortunate flat humor had me confused. Is this the Predator film or a joke? ‐ Alachia Queen

C+ 92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) As a romantic comedy, this film has nothing new to offer except the rise of a new comedy star, Awkwafina. ‐ Alachia Queen

B 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) Hilarious movie however the jokes overpower every other aspect of the movie so much so that you wonder if Deadpool is getting his own Netflix comedy special.‐ Alachia Queen

A- 84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) While the MCU still hasn't gotten the formula quite right for true villainy, they have certainly mastered the equation for entertaining banter & epic superhero moments.‐ Alachia Queen

A- 96% The Florida Project (2017) Another great Sean Baker piece that finds a way to make a heartbreaking story about poverty into a bittersweet adventure as told through through the precocious eyes of a Moonee and her mother Halley.‐ Alachia Queen

A- 89% I, Tonya (2018) A great unexpected dark comedy that entertainingly demonstrates how all narratives are biased. ‐ Alachia Queen

C- 91% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) My takeaway from this thesis on anger is that it's okay to be a c-nt but not a dick. ‐ Alachia Queen

C 94% Call Me by Your Name (2018) I appreciated the film quality and the acting but the story meandered in superficial courtship for too long without delivering actual connection. It was all foreplay and no action. Perhaps the sequel will make this film more appealing to me in the future.‐ Alachia Queen

A- 97% Black Panther (2018) Black Panther definitely doesn't do anything outside of the Disney Marvel comfort zone but it's as solid a film as a super hero origin story can be.‐ Alachia Queen

C 99% Lady Bird (2017) Just like its title character, Lady Bird is quirky and sentimental but despite best attempts, never really defines itself into anything meaningful.‐ Alachia Queen

F 11% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) For about a minute into the movie, I thought there was a chance this was going to be an actual film but then the dialogue began and it went straight to fanfic.‐ Alachia Queen

C+ 71% Hostiles (2018) A meaningful, harsh and authentic look at the toll the expansion to the west took on civilians, Native Americans, and soldiers. ‐ Alachia Queen

B 92% The Shape of Water (2017) A unique and original science fiction love story that is sometimes weighed down too heavily by an unoriginal villain plot line. ‐ Alachia Queen

A 80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Yorgos Lanthimos has once again shown he's a master at metaphorical drama as he explores the abstract moral distinction between guilt and responsibility.‐ Alachia Queen

B+ 83% Molly's Game (2018) While the shell of this movie is a biopic of a conflicted, tenacious woman, the heart of it is an intriguing psychological drama about the game of poker. ‐ Alachia Queen

C+ 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) The Disaster Artist unfortunately takes Wiseau as seriously as he took himself during the filming of The Room, but at least it provides some insight as to why the "worst movie" ever made was created. ‐ Alachia Queen

A- 25% Bright (2017) If you had told me that one day we'd get an R-Rated buddy cop movie with centaur police, orc gang bangers, socialite elves, and dragons flying under the an LA moon, I would never have believed it. ‐ Alachia Queen

B 31% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Despite being marketed as historical fiction King Arthur story, this film is actually a high octane full on fantasy film that showcases Excalibur guiding Arthur to his destiny. And it's thrilling! ‐ Alachia Queen

C- 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Although not worse than the prequels for me, The Last Jedi is its own special kind of meh that demonstrates Disney doesn't have the guts to do this franchise any justice. ‐ Alachia Queen

A 93% Logan (2017) You mean this is the Wolverine we could have always had? Of course this would be the last one. Logan is a fantastically dark and satisfying story ending for this Hugh Jackman's Wolverine.‐ Alachia Queen

B+ 40% Justice League (2017) The patchwork editing of this film matches the patchwork job Warner Bros is trying to do with the DCEU. While the result is a messy and ugly film, it successfully makes this super hero franchise finally fit right with the fans. ‐ Alachia Queen

A+ 87% Wind River (2017) It is intense, It is amazing. I loved the story. I loved every moment of the film. Taylor Sheridan is 3 for 3. ‐ Alachia Queen

C- 70% mother! (2017) It's truly an expressive art piece at a surprise auction. Bidding starts at "intriguing" and is sold at "at least it made you think"‐ Alachia Queen

A- 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) If you want to bask in a stylistic expression of the introspective search for self, you won't be disappointed.‐ Alachia Queen

C+ 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Thor Ragnarok takes you on a visually psychedelic adventure that sadly goes absolutely nowhere.‐ Alachia Queen
