80% 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

90% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Ralph gets enough of it right to be worth signing on for.‐ Mashable

40% 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

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

88% 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

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

13% 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

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

60% 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

81% 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

93% 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

92% 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

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

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

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
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2018
90% Set It Up (2018) Right off the bat, Set It Up nails the most important element of the romcom formula: chemistry. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2018
94% Incredibles 2 (2018) It's like the best of the Avenger-on-Avenger bits from Captain America: Civil War or Avengers: Infinity War - only better, because it's easier to follow the the crisp, colorful action. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2018
68% Ocean's 8 (2018) It's fun enough to serve as an excuse to chill with some friends, or while away an afternoon in movie-theater air-conditioning.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Rather than try to mimic Ford's work beat-for-beat, Ehrenreich has found a way to make the role his own, and in doing so to show us this familiar character from a fresh perspective.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
83% Deadpool 2 (2018) If you enjoyed the first one, there's every chance you'll like this one as well. Similarly, if you hated the first one, you probably won't find much to love about the follow-up either.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Here, the special-ness comes from the pleasure of seeing all these larger-than-life personalities smashed together into one supersized adventure.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
34% I Feel Pretty (2018) I Feel Pretty fumbles its message so badly that the end result is less inspiring than just plain baffling. At its worst, it does more to reinforce society's punishing beauty standards than dismantle them.‐ Mashable

83% Blockers (2018) Blockers feels empowering not because it tells a story of girls triumphing in a man's world, but because it shows us girls flourishing in their own world, on their own terms, surrounded by supportive friends and nice boys and well-meaning parents.‐ Mashable

95% A Quiet Place (2018) This may not be the deepest or most ambitious horror movie in recent memory -- there's not much here beyond that brilliantly simple core concept. But as a delivery vehicle for sheer, visceral terror, it's one of the most brutally effective.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2018
42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) A Wrinkle in Time is for all the girls - and boys, and non-binary kids, and teens and adults and the elderly - who've ever been a Meg. It's a flawed film that entreats us to love flawed things, up to and including our very own selves.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
12% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Fifty Shades is a veritable orgy of ineptitude and unprofessionalism - which might not be a problem, except that the film also insists on showing everyone at work all the time. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
97% Black Panther (2018) Black Panther perfects what the Marvel Cinematic Universe has always done so well: build a world so richly rendered, it's almost a letdown to reach the end of the film and realize it's time to return to our own reality.‐ Mashable

77% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) While Jumanji isn't interactive in the way of actual video games, it does its best to simulate that feeling by getting you on the same page with the players at every turn.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
93% Thelma (2017) The supernatural Thelma is the coming-of-age experience in a nutshell: It's all about finding out who you are, with all the invigorating uncertainty and ambiguity that entails. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2017
97% Coco (2017) What makes Coco rare is that it recognizes that the things that give your life meaning might be in opposition to one another, and asks you to consider what really matters most. ‐ Mashable

40% Justice League (2017) Perhaps the new Superman is closer to what the fans wanted. But he doesn't really feel like a character anymore. He, like the rest of his movie, feels like a focus group-approved concept.‐ Mashable

92% Stronger (2017) What makes Stronger so powerful, though, is that it's not interested in cheap, easy inspiration.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
56% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) The Lego Ninjago Movie comes down to a 'be yourself' message that's so half-hearted that, even as I'm typing this, I'm not entirely sure it was the message of the movie. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
49% Downsizing (2017) As a filmmaker's ambitious attempt to wrestle with big, answerable questions, Downsizing is an interesting artifact. As an actual movie, though, it's an awkward misfire.‐ Mashable

28% Suburbicon (2017) What we don't need are more movies that treat black characters as props and backdrops for stories about white people, and black pain as entertainment and education for white people. ‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
89% I, Tonya (2018) It's interested in subjective truths, in class differences, in our national self-image, and in our cultural obsession with scandal and celebrity.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
96% The Florida Project (2017) As Moonee, Brooklynn Prince is a revelation. There's not a single artificial note in her performance, just raw charm.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) The overall effect is kind of numbing, but from moment to moment it's the cinematic equivalent of a cotton candy sugar rush.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
91% The Shape of Water (2017) What results is a story that feels both fresh and timeless - and desperately needed, at a time when the world feels mean. Let's hope this one sticks around a while.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Battle of the Sexes is so shrewd in other areas that it's hard to complain. What Battle of the Sexes understands is that this match looked entirely different depending on which side you were rooting for.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
84% Darkest Hour (2017) There's a living, breathing soul at underneath all that makeup, at the center of all those tics, and Oldman makes him fascinating to watch.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
86% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) Professor Marston and the Wonder Women doesn't reinvent the biopic - but it expands our ideas about the kinds of stories that biopics can tell. ‐ Mashable

69% mother! (2017) Part of the fun is going into mother! knowing as little as possible so that you and your friends can argue afterwards about what it all means.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
85% It (2017) It is scary, yes -- but it's heartbreaking, too. And that, even more than the clown's nasty tricks, might be what lingers with you.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
16% The Dark Tower (2017) The thin characterizations might have been mitigated by livelier dialogue... But there's no poetry or personality in any of these words.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2017
98% The Big Sick (2017) Yes, The Big Sick is a comedy, but it's a comedy that offers up about a million reasons to cry.‐ Mashable
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Watts nails the timeless cornerstones of adolescence: the crippling anxiety mixed with brash confidence, the life-or-death dimensions of a crush, the impatience to grow up.‐ Mashable

16% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) I can't remember the last time I felt so little while watching a movie. I wasn't even bored, so much as just dazed, like I'd woken up in someone else's dream.‐ Mashable

6/10 44% The Bad Batch (2017) If The Bad Batch is an ultimately pointless journey, at least it's one that takes us through some genuinely new territory -- one populated by bodybuilding cannibals and soundtracked by '90s-style boomboxes.‐ Slashfilm
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
65% Magic Mike XXL (2015) It's fun. Magic Mike XXL moves along at a brisk clip, leaning into all the absurdities of its premise and giggling all the way. It's the cinematic equivalent of an afternoon spent drinking beer on the beach. Everyone's having a good time.‐ Slashfilm
