66% 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) 10 Things I Hate About You can and should be viewed as the ultimate teen movie, bursting through the hellish decade to say a little more about the empowering potential of those defining years. - Little White Lies EDIT

4/5 79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) A very enjoyable sequel, perhaps just shy of being an all-round triumph, but an admirably heartwarming effort at continuing the legacy of everyone's favorite magical nanny. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 99% The Tale (2018) The Tale is distressing and compelling, a film for the #MeToo movement that reckons with personal relationships and inflicted trauma. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 65% Suspiria (2018) Languorous and muted, with muddled plot lines and a very open approach to the coven of horror that the original film kept a little more secretive. - The Skinny EDIT

3/5 91% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) The first and second narratives are blisteringly fun and energetic, but onwards from there the pace slackens enormously. - The Skinny EDIT

3/5 100% Two for Joy (2018) There are some moments when the script feels somewhat insincere. Strong performances, however, especially from the kids, elevate the muted atmosphere and add a richness to the story. - CineVue EDIT

1/5 36% Johnny English Strikes Again (2018) Vapid characters and very few laughs. - Little White Lies EDIT

3/5 59% Vox Lux (2018) Vox Lux's concerns with façade are interesting but it leaves the film itself to only scratch at the surface with weak dialogue and unconvincing performances. - The Skinny EDIT

3/5 62% Outlaw King (2018) David Mackenzie delivers an entertaining film, but with a lengthy runtime and some choreographed battle scenes that lack originality. - The Skinny EDIT

4/5 88% High Life (2019) A chaotic whirlwind of cinematic bizarrity that has to be seen to be believed. - The Skinny EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
4/5 91% Widows (2018) Widows is hugely impressive, engaging and slick in a way that maintains McQueen's signature mature style without getting caught up in a tired, crime caper tradition. - The Skinny EDIT

4/5 69% Beautiful Boy (2018) Beautiful Boy is an affecting drama with impressive lead performances, guided by a sensitive directorial hand. - The Skinny EDIT

2/5 86% The Wedding Plan (2017) Once Koler's charm begins to wear thin it's easy to become frustrated by a story that has the potential to be so much more than a light romantic frolic. - Little White Lies EDIT
