4/10 55% The Grinch (2018) Illumination Entertainment is likely to have a hit with THE GRINCH simply because it is one of those holiday stories audiences respond to. Yet as big and brash as the new film can be, the main character himself is more irritating than enjoyable.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

5/10 33% The Predator (2018) ...while I didn't mind the overabundance of humor and the ultra violent streak of the kills, it's far too clunky to fully recommend.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

4/10 65% The Little Stranger (2018) It certainly doesn't work as a ghost story, and the gothic romance tale fares only a little better. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

6/10 59% Operation Finale (2018) Aside from the final act, the lack of suspense is prevalent throughout much of the running time. Even still, the story leading up the trial features some terrific work, especially from both Isaac and Kingsley.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

6/10 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) THE DARKEST MINDS feels like it perhaps should have come out five years ago. However, it is one of the better examples of the many generic YA feature film adaptations that have hit theatres since 2008.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

8/10 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) Denzel Washington is excellent as McCall, and he brings out the best in Richard Wenk's script. If you are a fan of the original film, you will very likely appreciate this latest chapter.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

7/10 81% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) Writer/director Ol Parker manages to inject a bit more energy into this new story. Yet the film's heart is Lily James. The actress is utterly charming.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

5/10 40% Mary Shelley (2018) All the elements are here to create something entrancing, yet all we get is a professionally made biopic that fills in a few blanks on Mary's life, but little else. For me personally, I could at least entertain in that.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
