23% Mile 22 (2018) A clunky actioner with a handful of cool moments. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

93% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) The first good date movie to come along in quite some time. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

6/10 32% The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (2018) While The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter doesn't come close to being on-par with Hill's other work, being too mainstream and toned-down, it's still a solid watch and good for a few laughs. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

93% A Prayer Before Dawn (2018) A staggering showcase for star Joe Cole. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

48% The Meg (2018) Disappointingly straight-forward. Not as much silly fun as you might hope for. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

71% Christopher Robin (2018) Probably better for younger kids and their parents than older kids more used to Star Wars and Pixar, but quite charming and sweet. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

5/10 45% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) Not funny at all, but, director Susanna Fogel has a legitimately great eye for action, so this could be something of a calling card for her directing a different kind of film. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

8/10 85% Searching (2018) Without a doubt, Searching is the most effective use yet of the screen life technique, although I'd like to see it may be used outside of the thriller genre. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2018
42% Hot Summer Nights (2018) Not terribly original, with it playing like the director watched Risky Business, Boogie Nights and Blow a little too closely - but still entertaining. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2018
97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) It's one of those perfect modern blockbusters like THE DARK KNIGHT, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, SKYFALL, and MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. It illustrates just how good a movie like this could be. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

90% The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2018) A low-budget charmer with checking-out. Sam Elliot goes-for-broke in an award worthy performance. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
7/10 90% Nightmare Cinema (2018) I had a good time with it, and for the Dante segment alone it's a must-see.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

61% Under the Silver Lake (2018) SOUTHLAND TALES all over again. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
58% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) A solid little chiller. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
48% Skyscraper (2018) Enough CGI to make DIE HARD look like a documentary, but Skyscraper is utterly devoid of the attitude and creativity that made that film such an enduring classic. This is a run of the mill clone. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
87% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) While not a franchise game-changer, there's something soothing about the lower stakes of this sequel's well-honed heist plot, making it a fun follow-up. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
67% Ideal Home (2018) Likable and well-acted.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) One of the best sequels ever made. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
10% Escape Plan 2: Hades (2018) Stallone is in it just enough to make it worth watching for die-hard fans, but don't let the marketing fool you into thinking him and Bautista are anything more than supporting players in this one. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
0% Gotti (2018) Much of the action takes place in what looks to be the constantly redressed basement of an Elks lodge.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2018
7/10 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) An even goofier sequel that'll either keep this saga a global phenomenon or run it into the ground.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2018
93% Incredibles 2 (2018) with a new spin on the formula, INCREDIBLES 2 is strikingly in tune with the times‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2018
55% Tag (2018) Deserves to be a word-of-mouth, sleeper hit. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2018
58% Hotel Artemis (2018) this ninety-minute potboiler isn't going to change the world, but as a B-grade pulp thriller, it pushes all the right buttons ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2018
67% Ocean's 8 (2018) Bullock easily conveys the same kind of iconoclastic cool as George Clooney. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
5% 211 (2018) A mortifying, poor showing for Cage. Classic film fans may remember when Buster Keaton was forced, in his later, near-destitute years, to do cameos in sixties beach party movies. This is worse.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
6/10 73% Adrift (2018) a relatively engaging little movie‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
94% First Reformed (2018) A masterwork containing a possible career-best performance by Ethan Hawke.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 25, 2018
71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) a proficient, well-made film with some moments of genuine inspiration, even if it likely won't set the world on fire.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
84% Cargo (2018) An elevated zombie thriller with a killer hook.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
0% Dark Crimes (2018) A lurid, boring mess. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
83% Deadpool 2 (2018) A deliriously violent concoction. Better than the first. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
21% Terminal (2018) Robbie is fun and it's always a treat watching Mike Myers play against type, but Terminal isn't a clever as it thinks it is. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
38% Life of the Party (2018) A tame, mostly unfunny updating of BACK TO SCHOOL. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
40% Anon (2018) Starts off great, but quickly gets bogged down in a boring mystery that never picks up momentum. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
53% Bad Samaritan (2018) A decent low-key thriller with an ace David Tennant performance. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) A textbook team-up movie.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
71% Kodachrome (2018) Takes a tired formula and makes it fresh again.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
31% Super Troopers 2 (2018) SUPER TROOPERS 2 is a lot like DUMB & DUMBER TO, or later Adam Sandler movies. It's funny to watch youngish guys being stupid, but watching them act the same way in middle age isn't quite as easy to laugh at, as it takes on an air of tragedy.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
20% Submergence (2018) SUBMERGENCE is strictly for art-house audiences, specifically fans of Wenders, but even they'll likely be bored by what's easily a lesser-effort‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
52% Rampage (2018) Popcorn munching fun delivered with a wink and a smile. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018
83% Blockers (2018) Well-written and well-acted. Done just right, with depth, some genuine feeling, and a whole lot of belly laughs‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
95% A Quiet Place (2018) A lean and mean creature flick with a killer hook. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
73% Ready Player One (2018) While I'm not sure READY PLAYER ONE stands on its own as a distinct work, it can't be denied that it is what it is and is the best possible version of Cline's novel that could have been realistically done.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2018
8% Game Over, Man! (2018) A small step-up from Netflix's Adam Sandler offerings, but that's faint praise. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Lacks the soul Guillermo del Toro brought to the first. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
80% Unsane (2018) Feels like a bit of a lark, but still entertaining and useful in that it pushes low-budget technology further and further. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Straight-forward but entertaining fact-based drama with some good performances and an arresting climax.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2018
49% Tomb Raider (2018) Easily the best big-screen version of the Tomb Raider franchise to date. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
93% Journey's End (2018) A somber, well-acted WWI drama. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
