8.6/10 91% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) This is deeply steeped in pop culture and in comic book references, but there's context. It's not just self referential, it's also commenting on itself in ways that are really subversive and really daring. I was shocked.‐ What the Flick?!

1/4 17% The Pagemaster (1994) The Pagemaster is the kind of movie first-grade teachers would have popped into the VCR in the 1990s to kill time on a rainy afternoon.‐ ChristyLemire.com

6/10 61% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) It's so overly simplistic, and its so hackneyed, and they don't really breathe a lot of life into that message. Having said that, there are enough light and goofy moments that are playful. ‐ What the Flick?!

9/10 100% Leave No Trace (2018) [Thomasin McKenzie] is a massive find. There is such wisdom in her presence...You can feel her seeing everything and taking it all in. There's such a naturalism to the way she responds in every single situation. ‐ What the Flick?!
