2.5/5 67% On My Skin (Sulla mia pelle) (2018) On My Skin is set up to be a movie of the moment, for the moment. Instead, it is frustratingly thin. - The Daily Dot EDIT

2/5 50% The Warning (El aviso) (2018) The Warning is a movie without a purpose and a hollow exercise. It's twisty for the sake of being twisty and the surprises land with a thud. - The Daily Dot EDIT

4/5 100% I Am Evidence (2017) I Am Evidence doesn't exactly say anything that we don't already know, but it makes clear the cost of this dereliction of responsibility. - The Daily Dot EDIT

67% Orbiter 9 (Órbita 9) (2018) Orbiter 9 starts as a compelling sci-fi piece, then the plot kicks in and it becomes dull. It's a shame because the story has the heft to carry a better movie but it's ultimately another misfire for Netflix. - The Daily Dot EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Amateur (2018) Condensing the story takes the air out of the ball and renders the movie flat. What's left feels like a jumble of story threads that don't cohere. - The Daily Dot EDIT

2.5/5 32% Irreplaceable You (2018) Irreplaceable You is a mixed bag and Netflix is the perfect home for it. It's the kind of movie that won't offend or waste your time. There are better options out there, but you'll find things in Irreplaceable You to be moved by. - The Daily Dot EDIT

22% Step Sisters (2018) Step Sisters is especially disappointing coming from director Charles Stone III, who gave the world the joy of Drumline. No one would care about Step Sister's generic script if the dance scenes popped. - The Daily Dot EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Meth Storm: Arkansas USA (2017) For as dark a picture as Meth Storm paints, it's not entirely devoid of hope.
