Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
6/10 73% Creed II (2018) Can't live up to the legacy even of the previous Creed movie, let alone any of the Rocky movies, when it relies so heavily on every predictable boxing cliché imaginable.‐ The Weekend Warrior

7/10 40% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) If nothing else, The Crimes of Grindelwald sets up some intriguing building blocks for the next movie, which hopefully will introduce even more fantastic beasts.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8.5/10 91% Widows (2018) McQueen may have clinched himself a second Oscar nomination with his brilliant work at pulling this amazing cast together into such a compelling story.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8/10 80% Overlord (2018) May be the most impressive war film since Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, frequently surpassing its B-movie roots, but also, it's fun watching Nazis getting their just desserts.‐ The Weekend Warrior

7.5/10 41% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) Fans of the book (and other movies) will enjoy seeing a new story and will be too busy following the story to care much about any of the film's minimal flaws.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8/10 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Bohemian Rhapsody might not be the be-all end-all story of Freddie Mercury and Queen ... but it's easily the next best thing.‐ The Weekend Warrior

7.5/10 79% Halloween (2018) [It] isn't a perfect movie ... but it's a far more faithful and respectful version of Carpenter's masterwork than the Rob Zombie take.‐ The Weekend Warrior

9/10 73% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) This is a surprisingly strong bit of genre filmmaking that solidifies Goddard's placement among the greats.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8/10 88% First Man (2018) Chazelle and Gosling deliberately go for something more grounded in its authenticity, but because of that, they end up with a movie that isn't nearly as entertaining.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8.5/10 96% The Hate U Give (2018) In my opinion, this is up there with some of the best movies I've seen this year.‐ The Weekend Warrior

6.5/10 29% Venom (2018) If you are a fan of the comic character, you should be pleased with this incarnation just as those unfamiliar with the character will probably find the movie and Hardy's performance to be off-putting.‐ The Weekend Warrior

9/10 90% A Star Is Born (2018) An impressive debut from Cooper, not only for his direction but also how he elevates himself as an actor to keep up with his perfectly cast co-star.‐ The Weekend Warrior

95% The Favourite (2018) I don't think The Favourite will be for everyone. I do think that there's enough in the movie worth of awards consideration and hopefully it will get long-deserved attention for the highly-underrated [Olivia] Colman.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8.5/10 81% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) A worthwhile and inspirational battle cry to get out there to protest, revolt or better yet, run for office yourself.‐ The Weekend Warrior

6/10 58% White Boy Rick (2018) Another underwhelming crime biopic that goes out of its way to remind us that "drugs are bad and crime doesn't pay."‐ The Weekend Warrior

7/10 85% A Simple Favor (2018) Anyone who likes mysteries and Kendrick and Lively as actors should find themselves pleasantly surprised by how well Feig makes this one work.‐ The Weekend Warrior

7.5/10 33% The Predator (2018) It's hard to tell if super-fans of the original Predator will find this to be a suitable relaunch, but there are certainly enough entertaining elements to keep even the most casual fan invested.‐ The Weekend Warrior

5/10 10% Peppermint (2018) This should be a lesson to the critics who trashed Bruce Willis' Death Wish remake, because that is an absolute masterpiece compared to this garbage. ‐ The Weekend Warrior

7.5/10 27% The Nun (2018) Here's hoping we'll eventually see more of the Warrens, as they're a hard act to top when it comes to supernatural investigators.‐ The Weekend Warrior

92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Crazy Rich Asians was fun stuff and really surprising in how much I enjoyed it, even going in with slightly skeptical expectations.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8.5/10 59% Operation Finale (2018) A political thriller that's relevant to the times without hitting the viewer over the head with that fact ... but also a fairly entertaining film in the vein of Argo and others.‐ The Weekend Warrior

5/10 30% Kin (2018) Kin is proof positive that people who play too many video games shouldn't be allowed to make feature-length films.‐ The Weekend Warrior

6.5/10 23% The Happytime Murders (2018) I'm just glad more people who look like Kermit the Frog are finally being represented in Hollywood movies.‐ The Weekend Warrior

9/10 82% Juliet, Naked (2018) This is a fantastic romantic comedy from Peretz and others, who all did an amazing job adapting Hornby's work.‐ The Weekend Warrior
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2018
8/10 84% The Wife (2018) A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.‐ The Weekend Warrior

7.5/10 81% Alpha (2018) If Terrence Malick or Alejandro Innaritu made this exact same movie, it would be thought of as a revelation...‐ The Weekend Warrior

6/10 8% Slender Man (2018) I guess the best that can be said about Slender Man is that it could have been a lot, lot worse.‐ The Weekend Warrior

7.5/10 95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Spike Lee's best film in a very long time ... should continue the narrative that began with producer Jordan Peele's film Get Out even if it does so in not nearly as clever a way.‐ The Weekend Warrior

6.5/10 45% The Meg (2018) The corniest of popcorn movies ... Don't go in expecting Jaws, but maybe something closer to Jaws 2.‐ The Weekend Warrior

100% Night Comes On (2018) Night Comes On also introduces a lot of new talent, and though it's a quieter more introspective film, it's also one that's definitely worth seeking out.‐ The Tracking Board

93% Blindspotting (2018) Ultimately, Blindspotting is a far more powerful film that leaves a deep impact on the viewer, and it doesn't take costly Hamilton tickets to realize that Diggs is incredibly talented and should continue making films.‐ The Tracking Board

4.5/10 49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) The Spy Who Dumped Me is like if you put every Paul Feig movie into the blender with a steaming pile of shit. ‐ The Weekend Warrior

7/10 46% Skyscraper (2018) There are more than enough nail-biting moments, solid action scenes you can almost forgive the weak script, low-budget casting to allow the majority of the budget to be used on the CG-heavy setting and Johnson himself.‐ The Weekend Warrior

6/10 53% The First Purge (2018) To say The First Purge is the best of the series" probably wouldn't be saying a lot ... if your local movie theater has air-conditioning, there are worse ways to spend your time.‐ The Weekend Warrior

6.5/10 49% Superfly (2018) If you're going into [this] as a fan of the original movie, you're already setting yourself up for disappointment, although it's far from a bad movie. ‐ The Weekend Warrior

6/10 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Noticeably lacking due to the absence of so much of what made the first film so good, particularly [director Denis] Villaneuve.‐ The Weekend Warrior

7/10 63% Uncle Drew (2018) About as silly and predictable as one might expect from watching the trailers [but it's] funny and entertaining even if you don't really know the players beneath the make-up.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8/10 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) A worthy addition to the franchise ... if you're already a fan of the series, then you're likely to go see this regardless of reviews, which is how it should be.‐ The Weekend Warrior

8/10 89% Hereditary (2018) If you want to talk about filmmakers that are carrying on Stanley Kubrick's legacy, then Ari Aster is the real deal, as he effortlessly combines the amazing work Kubrick did both in The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut. ‐ The Weekend Warrior

7.5/10 84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) After seeing Infinity War, I wasn't sure if I'd see it again but after thinking about it a bit longer, I do feel I could get more out of a second viewing.‐ The Weekend Warrior

7.5/10 34% I Feel Pretty (2018) Offers a subtle but clear message, although I'm not sure whether that message is 'Confidence is Sexy' or 'Possible Brain Damage is Sexy.'‐ The Weekend Warrior

C 36% The Leisure Seeker (2018) There's nothing particularly groundbreaking here in terms of storytelling, and it seems like a fairly trivial waste of its two leads.‐ The Tracking Board
