99% Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) The fact that the film is all the more compelling for its lack of traditional action is down to Heller's skilfull directing, and the script, which crackles with Lee and Jack's combined wit.‐ Refinery29

96% Wildlife (2018) Actor Paul Dano's directorial debut... is a complex, deep dive into the psyche of a broken family in an era where the veneer of happiness is prized above all. ‐ Refinery29

89% The Kindergarten Teacher (2018) Sarah Colangelo directs this American adaptation of Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid's 2014 drama by the same name, and she masterfully creates an atmosphere of discomfort, if not outright horror. The buildup is slow and steady.‐ Refinery29

65% Beautiful Boy (2018) Beautiful Boy crescendos when Nic and David interact. It's a story about addiction, yes, but also about learning to let go of your children, for better or for worse. It's not exactly an enjoyable film to watch, but perhaps it shouldn't be.‐ Refinery29

88% First Man (2018) [It] is a love letter to the scope of human ambition, but is also conscious of its limits. Josh Singer's script doesn't gloss over the more controversial aspects of the space program, nor its detractors, whose concerns -- are given fair consideration.‐ Refinery29

30% Venom (2018) As a superhero movie, Venom,... is a dismal failure... But as a buddy comedy? Well, that's where Venom really hits its stride.‐ Refinery29

96% The Hate U Give (2018) Stenberg gives a stunning and powerful portrayal of seething, bubbling rage at the injustice that she can endure no longer. But what keeps [it] from veering into the melodramatic... territory is that it commits to fleshing out its characters fully.‐ Refinery29

37% But I'm a Cheerleader (2000) What makes But I'm A Cheerleader so emotionally affecting is that despite the cotton-candy exterior, the film never lets its audience forget that these are people undergoing a traumatic experience.‐ Refinery29

44% Destination Wedding (2018) Ryder is a gifted actress, and Reeves, who has mostly been coasting on roles where he doesn't have to say more than 15 lines at a time, manages to turn his signature woodenness into comedy. And together? It's a powerful force to contend with.‐ Refinery29

49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) Why not sit back, and enjoy a summer blockbuster with jokes about vaginas that aren't geared towards men?‐ Refinery29

87% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) Though, [it] packs an emotional punch that's hard to shake. Like a good '90s single, it's the kind of thing that lurks in the back of your brain, ready to resurface with new meaning when you least expect it.‐ Refinery29

80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) The thing about Mamma Mia 2 is that it feels less like a movie, and more like a live musical at which you are an active participant. ‐ Refinery29

62% Pretty Woman (1990) The soundtrack, including the Roy Orbison classic that gave the movie its name, is bopping, and the pacing is breezy. Gere is charismatic, and he and Roberts have a subtle chemistry, a complicity that you want to share.‐ Refinery29

54% Marie Antoinette (2006) It's a highly personal film, which takes us into the very limited universe of a very young woman forced to play a very public role, gorgeously laying forth the trappings of luxury,... until we,... realize that it's nothing more than a gilded cage.‐ Refinery29

94% Sorry to Bother You (2018) The best part of Sorry To Bother You is that it feels unlike anything else, an almost DIY labor of love... with a message that packs a punch. Sometimes it's messy, and it's often weird, but it's always riveting.‐ Refinery29

99% Eighth Grade (2018) It's special, and rare, to see such a complex yet understanding and respectful look at a young woman's life.‐ Refinery29

94% Incredibles 2 (2018) But perhaps Incredibles 2's greatest achievement is that it manages to feel like a superhero movie with well-designed action sequences while also poking fun at the genre. ‐ Refinery29

68% Ocean's 8 (2018) The beauty of Ocean's 8 is how it manages to transcend its status as "the female Ocean's 11," delivering a bold, funny and joyous crime caper that gives its predecessor a run for its money.‐ Refinery29

48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) There will be a sequel. The ending makes that abundantly clear. But in all honestly, I'm rooting for one. Because Fallen Kingdom kind of feels like one big set-up for a much more complex, nuanced, and interesting premise (and no hybrid dinosaurs!).‐ Refinery29

71% Adrift (2018) Ultimately, this is a movie that delivers on its promise: to provide a thrilling, emotional, and unfiltered look at a hardcore woman battling the elements, while perhaps deterring some viewers from ever setting foot on any kind of boat ever again.‐ Refinery29

98% The Tale (2018) The film feels like [Jennifer Fox is] taking us on a journey of self-exploration without a foregone conclusion, which makes the end result both satisfying and not satisfying, much like real life.‐ Refinery29
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
68% On Chesil Beach (2018) It's a delicate story that would be impossible to adapt for film were it not for the strength of the actors involved. ‐ Refinery29
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Think of Solo as you would its eponymous hero: a scruffy-looking, half-witted nerf-herder of a film that's not bad to look at, and oh-so devilishly fun.‐ Refinery29
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
86% Tully (2018) Tully's strength lies in [Diablo] Cody's signature harmony between acerbic, wry humor, and stark, naked emotion.‐ Refinery29
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2018
85% Disobedience (2018) That approach is what makes Disobedience feel so fresh. Whereas most modern "off the derech," stories focus on Jews struggling to acclimate to their new lives, this film instead takes a look at what happens when you try to fit back into your old one.‐ Refinery29

83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) You shouldn't be able to care about that many people at once. And yet, Avengers: Infinity War more than pulls it off.‐ Refinery29
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
34% I Feel Pretty (2018) I Feel Pretty isn't designed to be taken that seriously. In fact, to do so is to deprive yourself of a movie that is, all in all, funny, cathartic, and more than a little bit moving.‐ Refinery29
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2018
83% Blockers (2018) The casting in Blockers is phenomenal. [Leslie] Mann is almost manic in her best role in years, grounding the more boorish comedy of her male co-stars.‐ Refinery29

51% Tomb Raider (2018) In fact, the physical and emotional toll of being Lara Croft is more evident in this film than it ever was before: watching Vikander heave herself up onto the wing of a rusty World War II plane perched over a waterfall is to feel your own biceps burn. ‐ Refinery29

49% Flower (2018) [Zoey Deutch] carries the film, appearing in every scene, and gives an injection of gritty reality to a character who could otherwise have felt like a stand-in for the sexually curious millennial woman.‐ Refinery29

86% Thoroughbreds (2018) Individually, these two young women are insufferable. Bored and suffering from rich white female priveleg-itis, they have distinctly first-world problems. But together, they're perversely charming.‐ Refinery29

41% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time is a magical adventure across dimensions and planets, saturated with vibrant colors and an Oprah the size of a small building.‐ Refinery29

92% Love, Simon (2018) But Love, Simon's greatest triumph is that it manages to highlight the small ways in which even the most accepting and open-minded among us can make coming out difficult, even in 2018. ‐ Refinery29
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
88% Annihilation (2018) Portman smoothly conveys both delicate intellect and physical strength, a tough combination to pull off, while Jason Leigh is terrifyingly serene. Rodriguez, in stark contrast to her Jane the Virgin roots, was born to play an action heroine.‐ Refinery29

47% Red Sparrow (2018) Red Sparrow, at its core, is about a woman's emancipation from the various men who control her: her ballet partner, her uncle, her lover, and the patriarchal state. Why cheapen that with a tepid romantic interest?‐ Refinery29

12% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) But seriously, for a movie that's supposed to be the final stroke in some kind of galactic-level movie orgasm, they sure picked the people least likely to make that happen.‐ Refinery29

97% Black Panther (2018) The film constantly manages to subvert expectations, while remaining firmly within the action-packed superhero genre.‐ Refinery29

90% I, Tonya (2018) Seeing her navigate the obstacles in her own life makes her brief moment of success all the more impressive, and her eventual downfall that much harder to witness.‐ Refinery29

91% The Disaster Artist (2017) So, to see the machinations behind it - the never-ending takes, the adding of the water bottle, Wiseau's commitment to "real human behavior" - gives depth to what, on the surface, appears purely trash.‐ Refinery29
