4/5 76% Smallfoot (2018) Smallfoot is a surprisingly sophisticated allegory about the consequences of conformity and the importance of questioning authority. Oh, and the songs are catchy too.‐ The Maine Edge

2/5 28% Venom (2018) It's not a good movie, but considering the box office numbers, it won't be long until we see the sequel that this movie ham-fistedly foreshadowed.‐ The Maine Edge

5/5 90% A Star Is Born (2018) The performances are raw and heartfelt. The aesthetic is honest and the music is spectacular. It uplifts and undercuts with equal abandon. It is a fantastic movie experience.‐ The Maine Edge

5/5 74% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Imagine a Wes Anderson movie that was 95 percent less twee and really leaned into the darkness and that's kind of close. ‐ The Maine Edge

5/5 88% First Man (2018) First Man is a film built from small steps and giant leaps ... and that's exactly as it should be.‐ The Maine Edge

4/5 79% Halloween (2018) It's a welcome addition to the franchise - one that allows us to ignore the many forgettable installments that came before.‐ The Maine Edge

1.5/5 37% Hunter Killer (2018) Hunter Killer is long and dull, overstuffed despite having a woefully thin narrative. It should have been entertaining trash ... but instead, it's just a waste of your time.‐ The Maine Edge

4.5/5 76% Mid90s (2018) Mid90s is a love letter to a time and place unique in youth cultural history. It isn't quite great - it has its share of flaws - but as far as debuts go, it's a hell of a strong one. ‐ The Maine Edge

4/5 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Bohemian Rhapsody isn't the great movie it might have been. It's too sanitized, too safe. But thanks to an incredible lead performance from Malek ... it's still a pretty good time.‐ The Maine Edge

1.5/5 34% The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) There are a lot of problems with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, but perhaps the biggest is its inherent inessentiality. There's literally no reason for this movie to exist. ‐ The Maine Edge

2/5 40% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) It's a shame to think that this might mark the end of Lisbeth Salander's cinematic adventures, but if this is indicative of what we're going to get, maybe it's for the best.‐ The Maine Edge

5/5 82% Overlord (2018) Overlord is perhaps the pleasantest surprise I've had at the movies all year. It's beautifully-crafted trash, a nutso concept treated with intelligence and respect.‐ The Maine Edge

3.5/5 57% The Grinch (2018) The Grinch isn't a bad movie, but neither is it a necessary one. And that's OK - he might not be the Grinch we deserve, but he's the one we need right now.‐ The Maine Edge

2/5 38% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) [L]ong and vaguely confusing and - most damningly - joyless ... if your movie about exploring the wonders of a massive wizarding world isn't fun, then what are we even doing here?‐ The Maine Edge

5/5 91% Widows (2018) A heist thriller built around empowering women and condemning the American political machine shouldn't work, but this movie does. ‐ The Maine Edge

0/5 16% Robin Hood (2018) Rest assured - you'll be anything but merry when you leave this one; the only thing this Robin Hood steals is two hours of your life that you'll never get back.‐ The Maine Edge

4.5/5 83% Creed II (2018) This sequel answers the bell and then some, giving us something that, while not quite a bout for the ages, turns out to be a hell of a fight.‐ The Maine Edge

5/5 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) [T]akes full advantage of the breadth of Disney's pop culture holdings ... Vanellope's encounter with all of the Disney Princesses (and yes, I mean all of them) alone is worth the price of admission.‐ The Maine Edge

0/5 12% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) The Possession of Hannah Grace is the equivalent of the disappointing dregs of the horror section at Blockbuster circa 1993, a movie whose cover tricks you into renting.‐ The Maine Edge

5/5 82% Green Book (2018) [A] throwback ... driven by the immense talent of its lead performers ... thoughtful and funny and heartbreaking; a hell of a compelling and emotionally engaging story.‐ The Maine Edge
