69% On Chesil Beach (2018) Instead, it's its own type of doomed romance, with twists and intrigue and a quick pace that manages to still leave room for humanity. There were highs, lows, and parts I sincerely hated-just like any real, human, non-rom-com relationship.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

67% Ocean's 8 (2018) I'm delighted to share that Anne Hathaway is the most delightful part of a very delightful movie!‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

38% Life of the Party (2018) Life of the Party is terribly named, because jerks like me are gonna make incorrect assumptions about what the movie's deal is, but we shouldn't, because it's just a joy‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

94% RBG (2018) We learn that Ruth Bader Ginsburg the Human, while immensely awesome, and yes, very petite, is not a cute or silly person. She's f***ing smart. Like, I'm-embarrassed-that-this-idiot-brain-is-the-one-I-have-to-use-to-write-about-her smart.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

33% I Feel Pretty (2018) To be clear, my criticism here is not "[Amy] Schumer isn't fat enough for I [Feel] Pretty's premise to work." It's that I don't want to laugh at this premise at all.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

83% Blockers (2018) There are some lessons learned and fun to be had throughout Blockers' high jinks, misunderstandings, wieners, and kids having access to far doper prom partying than I ever did, but none of it really lands.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

47% Red Sparrow (2018) And J. Law, who I like, was way too J. Law to work in this. I couldn't fall into the movie enough to ignore her hair and accent, and I just kept thinking about how women shouldn't have to be raked over coals to be found compelling.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle isn't half-bad, but it isn't for me. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

32% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) Pitch Perfect 3 trusts that its audience has seen the first two movies and banks on the characters' established charm.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

85% Wonder (2017) Wonder defaults to kindness in a manner that feels both totally inspiring and completely organic.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

29% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) And what the hell is this phenomenal cast doing in a movie that encourages such self-loathing in women?‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

83% Marshall (2017) Marshall proves, a movie can be entertaining AND complicated.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) It's fun and suspenseful, and rounded out by a delightful supporting cast, including Sarah Silverman and Alan Cummings.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

76% The Tiger Hunter (2017) The Tiger Hunter is like if a Bollywood romance and a Wes Anderson movie had a baby, then that baby grew up and had its own baby with My Big Fat Greek Wedding.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

92% Stronger (2017) What makes Stronger different from other schmaltzy, rah-rah Americana movies is that while it's about the marathon bombing, it's not really about the marathon bombing.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

29% I Do... Until I Don't (2017) It sneaks up on you, and even the most hardened among us can root for this secretly delightful movie.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) Studio Executive 1: I want more money. Let's make an unnecessary sequel.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

35% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) Alas, from the lame premise to the dumb execution, [Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates] ends up feeling super dated.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

77% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) Bridget Jones is a figurehead for the romantic comedy genre-a genre oft-reviled for letting a plot device as simple as finding love carry a film. But come on: This is something that people, both men and women, want in our lives.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

93% Queen of Katwe (2016) What I liked about Queen of Katwe is something mainstream American audiences rarely see: an inspiring family film that doesn't try to gloss up the protagonist's impoverished backstory.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

20% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) Keeping Up with the Joneses is not a good movie-it's dumb, boring, and predictable-but it's stacked with an excellent cast, dozens of chuckles, and a handful of legitimately brilliant LOLs.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

10% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) If this is what us gals are supposed to salivate over on Valentine's Day, I remain disappointed in Hollywood's expectations of women.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

73% Gifted (2017) Despite the fact that [Chris] Evans, [Jenny] Slate, [Mckenna] Grace, and the one-eyed cat are all so charming and watchable that you almost forget how much math is on-screen, Gifted is the kind of movie most people will never hear about.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

49% The Promise (2017) We don't need a bright, fake romance to make us care about massacred civilians.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

36% Snatched (2017) It's a mother/daughter movie that you can take your mother to and not have to avoid eye contact after.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

77% Atomic Blonde (2017) Am I obligated to mention that this action film is excellent on its own merits and not because of, or in spite of, a woman being the lead? How exhausting. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
