77% Bad Boys for Life (2020) While the tone of the previous two movies is largely transformed, what has made the trip fully intact is the most important aspect of Bad Boys' success: The chemistry between Smith and Lawrence. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

89% 1917 (2020) For those willing to go on its tough-as-nails, experiential journey, 1917 offers an awe-inducing reward. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

42% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Since King of the Monsters only exists to get audiences to see Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020, the attempt to be something more than just a loud, dumb bridge to the next episode is appreciated. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

58% Pet Sematary (2019) Jud was right: Sometimes dead is better. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

37% Glass (2019) I'm fine with slow and talky. What sucks is how this talent is completely wasted on this material. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

92% Bumblebee (2018) Nothing about it ever threatens to edge into "great" territory, but it's winsome, earnest and good-hearted, and that's more than enough to make it easily the best movie in the series. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

32% The Predator (2018) [It] doesn't sample an outdated clichéd aesthetic; it is that outdated clichéd aesthetic. This is a $100 million Golan-Globus movie-an incoherent cartoon full of slop and jank drowning out the brief sparks of charm thrown by actors who deserve better. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Incredibles 2 isn't as good or affecting as the first, but it is prettier, louder, faster, and funnier-and if you have to make a trade, that's not a bad one. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) While everyone who isn't named "Han" is short shrifted, Ehrenreich gets a really good grip on the character from the get-go, and watching him fumble and flail through his adventures is immensely enjoyable. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

66% Alien: Covenant (2017) The result is a film that's much less ambitious than Prometheus, but also significantly less pretentious and stupid. Covenant aims lower but hits more frequently. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) "Annoying" is the perfect term for his portrayal of Fantastic Beasts' hero, Newt Scamander, a shrugging, slumping sack of stammers and tics. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

47% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Apocalypse feels like it comes from the alternate timeline where Singe. . .reached into an uneven bag of overheated story bits and fished out a few great X-Men moments. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT
