80% How to Build a Girl (2019) It's a messy, effusive love letter to messy, effusive girls. - Mashable EDIT

75% Jojo Rabbit (2019) An "anti-hate satire" about an imaginary Hitler may seem a long, strange way to go about making this point - but it gets there in the end, with room for some deeply entertaining detours along the way. - Mashable EDIT

100% Marriage Story (2019) It'll take a lot of tears, and a few laughs, to get there. But Baumbach and his cast make it well worth the journey. - Mashable EDIT

39% Seberg (2019) Seberg is too baseline competent to be declared a disaster. - Mashable EDIT

97% Dolemite Is My Name (2019) If you're a sucker for watching scrappy outsiders band together to get away with something the world has told them they shouldn't, Dolemite Is My Name is for you. - Mashable EDIT

98% Knives Out (2019) Knives Out is a classic whodunit, and doesn't mind who knows it. - Mashable EDIT

53% The Lion King (2019) It's a lovingly envisioned, lavishly produced, and painstakingly crafted cash grab. And it's not much more than that. - Mashable EDIT

22% Men in Black International (2019) For all its oddball aliens and fantastical technology, the most unbelievable thing about Men in Black: International is just how thoroughly it wastes Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth. - Mashable EDIT

90% Plus One (2019) Therein lies the brilliance of Plus One: All of this feels like it's really happening. - Mashable EDIT

97% Toy Story 4 (2019) Toy Story 4's purpose, in the end, is to help you find yours. - Mashable EDIT

23% Dark Phoenix (2019) Dark Phoenix's lack of imagination is all the more disappointing because it glimmers of promise early on. - Mashable EDIT

57% Aladdin (2019) With Massoud, Aladdin hits that sweet spot all these remakes are aiming for... If only the rest of the film had been up to his level, this could have been a new classic. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted May 22, 2019
94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) This is Marvel flexing, building on over 10 years and 20-plus films of careful groundwork and intricate planning to show us what it can do that no other movie franchise can. As such, it's an immensely satisfying finish to this era of the series. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 23, 2019
47% Dumbo (2019) As a whole, though, Dumbo ends up feeling more like a sideshow than a main attraction...Dumbo probably would have been better off letting its freak flag fly. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
91% Shazam! (2019) The ponderousness and ambivalence that hang over many of the "grown-up" entries in the genre are absent here; Shazam! is a big open sky inviting you to come on up and test out those flight powers you just acquired. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2019
97% Booksmart (2019) Like the best of its genre, it feels both of the moment and totally classic. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2019
81% Long Shot (2019) What pushes Long Shot from unexpected to downright unbelievable, however, is the context in which this coupling takes place. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2019
99% Apollo 11 (2019) Paradoxically, it's these quieter moments that make Apollo 11 so breathtaking to behold. - Mashable EDIT

93% Us (2019) Several hours and many conversations later, I'm still convinced this film has secrets I haven't uncovered yet, and I'm just eager for my next chance to go digging through it again. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2019
78% Captain Marvel (2019) Just as the Marvel makers wanted, I left the theater pleased to have met Carol at long last, and eager to see her again. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2019
70% Isn't It Romantic (2019) It's so busy working to remind you of everything it's trying not to be, that it never quite gets around to figuring out what it actually is. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2019
99% The Farewell (2019) The Farewell stands as proof she's capable of much, much more. Awkwafina shoulders this dramatic leading role with the grace, and a showstopper monologue near the end of the film should win over any final skeptics. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
100% Knock Down the House (2019) What makes Knock Down the House so compelling, though, is that it digs beyond the pretty soundbites and packaged-for-TV narratives to show us not just who and what is happening in American politics right now, but how and why. - Mashable EDIT

98% Honey Boy (2019) Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place) plays the younger Otis, and he is the single best reason to seek out Honey Boy. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
90% Big Time Adolescence (2019) The film is often funny but rarely uproarious, kinda sweet but not terribly touching. The life lessons it ultimately imparts are perfectly reasonable, but they're also ones you've heard from your own nagging parents dozens of times before. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2019
54% Wounds (2019) What this movie is about, what it's trying to do, I couldn't really tell you. But it is never boring. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
92% Fighting with My Family (2019) The Knights - the wrestling clan at the center of Fighting With My Family - are at least idiosyncratic and endearing enough to make themselves worth watching, even if their tale feels like one we've seen many times before. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
85% The Report (2019) Though billed as a "political thriller," The Report eschews explosive drama or white-knuckle tension. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
84% Untouchable (2019) And for all Untouchable rails against the systemic injustices that kept Weinstein in power, and the complicity of the people who looked the other way, it doesn't really shed any new light on on the institutions or the industry that let him flourish. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
55% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Extremely Wicked settles for glamorizing, yet again, a murderer who's been glamorized enough already. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
85% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) It's a solid sequel - sweet and funny, with lots of crowdpleasing moments featuring your favorite characters, and another heartwarming real-world message to boot. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2019
37% Glass (2019) Watching Glass is like going to the movies with that one friend who cannot help leaning over to whisper one banal observation after another into your ear, and then leaning back satisfied that he's just blown your mind. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2019
79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Now that Mary Poppins has returned... it seems worth asking: Did we really need her to? - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2018
65% Aquaman (2018) There's a knowing silliness to Aquaman that helps gloss over its sometimes-shaky CG and over-complicated mythology, and a willingness to go for broke that keeps us guessing about what we'll witness next. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2018
97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Few recent films have embraced the comic book style and sensibility - its visual quirks and anything-goes openness - as wholeheartedly as Spider-Verse has, or enjoyed as fully the potential in combining the two mediums. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2018
84% Creed II (2018) It's not quite as smart as Creed, or quite as beautiful, and it doesn't have as much depth or nuance or texture. But it's got enough to deliver something satisfying and sweet. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2018
89% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Ralph gets enough of it right to be worth signing on for. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
37% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) While it is possible, if you squint very hard, to make out some of the deeper themes at play here...the real driving force behind Crimes of Grindelwald seems to be a burning desire to set up a sequel. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2018
29% Venom (2018) A movie that initially seemed just-plain-bad becomes so-bad-it's-good. Or maybe it's just plain good. It's been a full day since I've seen it, and honestly, I'm still not sure. Either way, I laughed a lot. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2018
87% First Man (2018) First Man doesn't just show us what it looks like to go to the moon. It considers how it must have felt to go to the moon. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
90% A Star Is Born (2018) You can see where all of it is headed from two miles away. But that doesn't matter, not when Bradley Cooper is executing the formula so well. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
14% Life Itself (2018) As evidenced by the title, Life Itself has grand ambitions... What it actually delivers, though, is a big sloppy pile of WTF. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
79% Halloween (2018) Like most long-running horror franchises, the Halloween series has seen its share of ups and downs over the decades. But those skeptical of the newest incarnation, directed by David Gordon Green, can put their fears to rest. This one's good. Really good. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
63% Outlaw King (2018) Outlaw King is one of those historical dramas that takes the Wikipedia approach to storytelling: This happens, and then that happens, and then that guy dies, and then that battle takes place, and then this other thing happens. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2018
82% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) Fahrenheit 11/9 is part exposé, part doomsday warning, and part call to arms, and the switch from one mode to another can be jarring. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
92% Searching (2018) You're actually able to follow and get invested in this family just by following their digital activity -- feels both improbable and inevitable. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Crazy Rich Asians invites us to indulge in the lifestyles of the rich and semi-famous... and director Jon M. Chu does a deft job of making all that wealth look both super enticing and totally exhausting. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2018
97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) All of their derring-do is choreographed, shot, and acted in a way that looks real, in a way that puts most of this summer's other action-adventure blockbusters to shame. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Isn't the funniest Marvel movie ever made, or the deepest or the coolest or the most creative. But it just might be the nicest, and that counts for something. - Mashable EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) I just know that it throws everything at the wall, and that it's a blessing more of it sticks than doesn't. - Mashable EDIT
