66% Vox Lux (2018) "Vox Lux" has the makings of a great movie, but it ends as just a very good one. Corbet is still finding his voice, the first act goes on too long and Portman's Celeste is the only character that feels truly fleshed out.‐ Entertainment Voice

10% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) This is also the kind of horror film where you scratch your head often, questioning some of its supernatural logic.‐ Entertainment Voice

98% Roma (2018) Cuaron is holding on to the memory of what such a time felt like in a Latin America of death squads.‐ Riot Material

68% The Christmas Chronicles (2018) A lot of "The Christmas Chronicles" feels like a first draft that was slapped together when executives figured they needed some kind of holiday movie to stream.‐ Entertainment Voice

94% The Favourite (2018) Lanthimos has widened his palette, while keeping his unique, strange and acidic humor intact.‐ Entertainment Voice

83% Creed II (2018) If what you seek is a good "Rocky" movie then "Creed II" delivers the goods.‐ Entertainment Voice

98% Roma (2018) This is cinema that breathes with life and all its losses and discoveries. It is as enrapturing as a good story, and when it's over you think about it in the way you remember a dream.‐ Entertainment Voice

91% Widows (2018) "Widows" has such rich layers that it's easy to forget to mention the more traditional, enjoyable thriller elements. McQueen has fun with the details of planning a robbery as the women train on the details.‐ Entertainment Voice

40% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) Those who like slick exercises in action filmmaking might enjoy "The Girl in the Spider's Web" as just that. The twists are right out of the spy handbook, with more than one double cross being inevitable.‐ Entertainment Voice

57% The Grinch (2018) The Grinch" succeeds in capturing Dr. Seuss' world via digital animation, but as a holiday revival of a classic story it may succeed in inspiring viewers to seek the original 1966 version.‐ Entertainment Voice

58% The Front Runner (2018) Groundbreaking it is not, but it is always a fascinating train wreck to behold.‐ Entertainment Voice

82% The Other Side of the Wind (2018) There is not much of a smooth flow to this film, which is after all assembled from what Welles left behind. But it is a glorious mess that captures the sheer stress and madness of trying to make a movie.‐ Riot Material

62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) "Bohemian Rhapsody" is most enjoyable during its grand concert scenes where Malek does an uncanny job capturing the style and mannerisms of the great vocalist. The raw energy, burning charisma and general likeability of Mercury come across brilliantly.‐ Entertainment Voice

No Score Yet The Grandmother (1970) A series of images giving form to our fears about ourselves. It is one thing to feel threatened from the outside, quite another to feel life has dealt you tortures you didn't ask for.‐ Riot Material

63% Suspiria (2018) The new Suspiria reaches back into the era of the Argento original, but only keeps the barest outline of its story. What it achieves more as a work on its own than as a remake is that it speaks so directly to the feeling of the age.‐ Riot Material

79% Halloween (2018) Director David Gordon Green has made a strong thriller using a villain engrained in our pop culture consciousness while updating the premise, and winking constantly at its predecessor.‐ Entertainment Voice

76% Mid90s (2018) Hill's screenplay does something interesting with the dialogue. It's engaging yet also revealing in how it captures the way people talked in a more pre-politically correct moment.‐ Entertainment Voice

88% First Man (2018) The most special thing about this story is that it is not science fiction, it was real, it happened, and it asks us to dream again.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2018
96% The Hate U Give (2018) A great young adult drama, unique in how it deals with a specific social issue. It is challenging, as it should be, because cinema should deal with what's happening in the world.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2018
92% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) For an actor of Redford's caliber to retire by playing an outlaw is fitting, because being an artist is almost the same fate. No matter where life takes you, that fire in the gut remains.‐ Entertainment Voice

92% Mandy (2018) There is a lot of blood in Mandy, as well as chainsaws, burning buildings, drugs and even animation, but it's never shallow or stale.‐ Riot Material

97% Blaze (2018) With "Blaze" Hawke has taken one of country's underground misfits and turned him into a figure of pathos. His Blaze Foley is endearing, because everyone who stumbles can see a little bit of themselves in him.‐ Entertainment Voice

59% White Boy Rick (2018) It's that rare crime film where the characters become interesting because there's nothing exaggerated about them. They are poor souls trying to make a buck in a cruel economy, which is a reality relatable even to those not living the life of the hustle.‐ Entertainment Voice

13% Life Itself (2018) Life itself can be a mess, this movie didn't have to be.‐ Entertainment Voice

100% Prototype (2018) Williams's project is far from a political statement, at least in the explicit sense. Instead his vision is grander and all encompassing.‐ Riot Material

91% Kusama: Infinity (2018) Kusama: Infinity is an endlessly fascinating documentary about an inspiring life, but it is also a universal story.‐ Entertainment Voice
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
10% 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

65% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
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

96% 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
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2018
41% 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

91% 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

48% 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

86% 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

52% 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
65% 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

77% 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

86% My Friend Dahmer (2017) My Friend Dahmer thinks it's disturbing, but mistakes weird looks for psychological tension.‐ Entertainment Voice

97% 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

96% 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
33% 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
