11% Peppermint (2018) Peppermint could have been at least good trash, but it decides to be an awkwardly-paced exercise in shallowness. If you want a high body count, step right in, but brains behind the brawns are sorely missed.‐ Entertainment Voice

60% The Little Stranger (2018) What we get are well-composed shots and fine actors. The ghost, however, is as lost as the film's ambitions.‐ Entertainment Voice

51% Equalizer 2 (2018) The early action scenes on their own have a classic, macho rhythm. But you can't just write a tough guy, you need to give him a place to go.‐ Entertainment Voice

97% Three Identical Strangers (2018) Wardle has pulled off an interesting feat. He has told these brothers' story, raised infuriating questions about the abuses of science, and by the end challenges the viewer to wonder about what makes us all tick.‐ Entertainment Voice

40% Den of Thieves (2018) A great heist movie is riveting, a good one entertaining, this one is well-shot, but the story gets lost somewhere along the way. It's like blasting open the shiny bank vault and finding nothing there.‐ Entertainment Voice

92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is one of those great films that never strikes a false note.‐ Entertainment Voice

46% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper is so preposterous it avoids becoming boring, for the wrong reasons of course. It scales the great heights of goofiness.‐ Entertainment Voice

84% Darkest Hour (2017) Wright has made a film of great words and visual elegance, but fueled by what is one of the year's greatest performances.‐ Entertainment Voice

47% Red Sparrow (2018) Red Sparrow is visually alluring but ultimately becomes a shallow exercise.‐ Entertainment Voice

72% Ready Player One (2018) At one point it might simply be too much. But that's part of the experience. Like some rides you're left dazed by the end, but you might just want to go back for another round.‐ Entertainment Voice

49% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) ... it's all just "Jurassic Park: Greatest Hits." ‐ Entertainment Voice

No Score Yet Kevin Smith: Silent But Deadly (2018) Silent but Deadly is a pristine portrait of Smith's brand of humor, which is really an outgrowth of his very persona as the quintessential geek filmmaker.‐ Entertainment Voice

83% Blockers (2018) Blockers is a case where the movie has an interesting, albeit creepy, premise but reduces it to the most bare gross-out humor.‐ Entertainment Voice

91% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) Hearts Beat Loud defines family film better than most movies claiming the title.‐ Entertainment Voice

85% Cargo (2018) We still get the zombies, but this time there's more effort at going beyond dining on brains.‐ Entertainment Voice

100% Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018) Chris Rock returns to us with things to say and share, with humor that serves as a nice respite as we ourselves march on and endure.‐ Entertainment Voice

64% Peter Rabbit (2018) It will keep the kids entertained for an hour and a half, but it's the kind of movie that doesn't grow on you, instead you grow out of it.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
53% 12 Strong (2018) 12 Strong will entertain and exhaust you, but after the ride is over you're left wondering about the fine print.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
61% The Polka King (2017) Yet rarely are morality tales this entertaining, much in part due to Black's ability to create a bombastic persona with a sentimental touch. Crime doesn't pay, but it sure makes for great stories.‐ Entertainment Voice

76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) John Callahan's life becomes one of the most interesting recent portraits of an artist's journey. But the beauty of Van Sant's approach is that he brings it down to earth, because every life is a hard road traveled.‐ Entertainment Voice

85% My Friend Dahmer (2017) My Friend Dahmer thinks it's disturbing, but mistakes weird looks for psychological tension.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
96% Mudbound (2017) The hidden passions, rancid hatreds and thunderstorms make for a memorable movie about the wastefulness of prejudice and the value of friendship. It goes back into the past to tell us some important things here in the present.‐ Entertainment Voice

95% Elvis Presley: The Searcher (2018) This documentary is a chronicle of a life lived as well as a celebration of American music.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
34% The Catcher Was A Spy (2018) The Catcher Was a Spy is an efficiently produced enigma that presents actors in WWII-era clothing walking around and reciting dialogue, but the story lacks more bold speculation.‐ Entertainment Voice

50% Downsizing (2017) Downsizing transcends its own gimmick, even if we chuckle we realize that the way things are going, it's not that bad of an idea.‐ Entertainment Voice

86% Tully (2018) By avoiding clichés and crafting real personalities [Tully] becomes an enduring portrait, beautifully endearing in its blemishes.‐ Entertainment Voice

57% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) Unfriended: Dark Web delivers quite a few howlers, if few scares. It might not be a classic, but it could be a candidate for a fun drinking game.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) It zig-zags from jokes that fall flat to a few sketches that are actually very funny, but it needs a more coherent form.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Day of the Soldado pales in comparison to its predecessor, but it is still better than most of the other action movies being made these days.‐ Entertainment Voice

95% Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind (2018) There may still be a definitive documentary about this artist in the future, but this one is still good, providing a panorama of a man who lived to bring a smile to us all.‐ Entertainment Voice

27% Breaking In (2018) If you are the kind of person who watches a lot of movies, then Breaking In will feel like a scheme you know by heart.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
100% Survivors Guide to Prison (2018) Survivors Guide to Prison is a very uncomfortable viewing experience. It will make you angry and shock you. But with this sort of subject matter, maybe that is the appropriate effect.‐ Entertainment Voice

46% The Meg (2018) The main flaw with The Meg is that it feels as if it should be having more fun than what it delivers‐ Entertainment Voice

82% Alpha (2018) With Alpha Hughes again demonstrates a striking eye, but he should have gone further. Still, it's an interesting film, best viewed on the biggest screen you can find.‐ Entertainment Voice

71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) This is not one of the best Star Wars movies, but it isn't a failure either. It works as a little adventure with winks at its classic predecessors.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
92% The Shape of Water (2017) The Shape of Water is subversive without meaning to be political. It invites us to consider the strange, romantic pairing of its two main characters, and in challenging us with this vision, it challenges us to consider how we view each other.‐ Riot Material

84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Visually exhilarating, with moments of gasp-inducing turns, Infinity War is the great, almost operatic showdown fans have been anticipating with every new title.‐ Entertainment Voice

98% The Tale (2018) A brave work of drama as testimonial.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
97% Coco (2017) This is a warm-hearted movie that probes deeper into the meaning of family and independence. It dives into Mexican culture with much gusto and joyous music, but its story has a universal power.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
89% Hereditary (2018) Be warned, this is indeed a scary movie. Like the recent and much louder A Quiet Place, this is cinema designed to slowly assault your senses and make you look over your shoulder on your way home. ‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
0% Gotti (2018) You cannot say a subject never deserves a movie. No doubt John Gotti could be the focus of a great crime drama. But with this Gotti crime doesn't pay.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
0% Dark Crimes (2018) Dark Crimes is a film that doesn't work with a performance that actually works pretty well.‐ Entertainment Voice

44% The Hurricane Heist (2018) The hurricane itself delivers but the story is left empty-handed.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Ant-Man and The Wasp is full of color and energy, goofball personalities and obsessed geniuses, lost loves and giant insects. It uses small ideas for big payoffs.‐ Entertainment Voice

23% Mile 22 (2018) For now, if you just seek Wahlberg cocking a gun as only he knows how, this might deliver. But how many rounds can you keep firing into a plot hole?‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
18% The Outsider (2018) The Outsider feels like the first draft of a story that could have worked with more tweaks and energy. It is another case of a project featuring talented people, but never truly exploiting their talents.‐ Entertainment Voice

53% Rampage (2018) Rampage promises you a giant gorilla in the ads, as well as Dwayne Johnson, and you certainly get both. What you might not get is your money's worth.‐ Entertainment Voice

95% November (2018) In the darkened woods of November, a narrative tradition is kept alive going back to the great Medieval poets. Sarnet links us, the audience, to characters from a distant time through universal sufferings and desires.‐ Riot Material
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2018
87% Annihilation (2018) This is a movie that is more about thinking than twists, about its ideas rather than its special effects (although they are beautiful). It is directed with patience and a command of tone.‐ Entertainment Voice
