5/5 100% The Girl Without Hands (La Jeune fille sans mains) (2017) As we continue to see animation progress and become more and more realistic, the French animated film The Girl Without Hands or La Jeune Fille sans mains is a reminder that the medium can be just as compelling with simple and evocative strokes‐ The Mary Sue

1.5/5 65% Victoria & Abdul (2017) Karim doesn't need to be a fierce anti-colonial advocate-that might be a bit of a historical jump-but to try and focus on their human connection absent of the conflicts of nation feels dishonest or irresponsible.‐ The Mary Sue

5/5 76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) As a mid-twentieth century writer revisiting the 19th century, du Maurier played with tropes and archetypes, and in this adaptation, Rachel Weisz as the title character is a sight to behold.‐ The Mary Sue

2/5 43% The Bad Batch (2017) Despite an exciting premise that featured a Mad Max-esque lawless wasteland, Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves, and cannibalism with the director of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, the film was wholly underwhelming.‐ The Mary Sue

4/5 84% My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2017) With so much going on, this is a coming-of-age that doesn't really slow down.‐ The Mary Sue

3.5/5 83% The King (2018) With parallels to real-life scandals and offhanded references to moments like the June Democracy Movement... The King succeeds as a political drama invested in the constantly changing dynamics of power.‐ The Mary Sue

2/5 72% Sing (2016) Despite having a star-filled cast and adorable animals I spent a great deal of the movie reminiscing about how much I enjoyed the animal world of Zootopia more.‐ The Mary Sue

2/5 57% The Neon Demon (2016) Pushing aside the earlier predatory male character in favor of a "women eat each other alive, but literally" story makes it fall short for me.‐ The Mary Sue
