2.5/5 50% Rampage (2018) You know Hollywood summer blockbuster season has started when you get mindless popcorn entertainment. Like Rampage. There is no other way to describe this preposterous flick about oversized and mutated animals terrorising the city of Chicago.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

1.5/5 18% The Titan (2018) In this bland sci-fi actioner that feels more like a TV movie, [Sam Worthington] is easily outshone by his 13-year-old co-star Noah Jupe.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 No Score Yet Be With You (Ji-geum Man-na-leo Gab-ni-da) (2018) By the time it reaches the final act, you'd probably already become a soggy mess, but there's no shame in that as the people around you will definitely be sniffling too.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) Spielberg's message about not losing touch with reality and corporate takeovers may be too obvious, but the glorious visuals will captivate you to the end.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

19% Submergence (2018) Director Wim Wenders has an ambitious global message about the environment and terror attacks, but his execution leaves this film and his lovely cast submerged under water.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 34% The Leisure Seeker (2018) Sadly, what sounds good on paper does not necessarily translate well onto the big screen.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Predictable story aside, the action and the Jaegar fight scenes are pretty cool, though the new Jaegers will remind you of Transformers, complete with some Michael Bay-esque trademark moments.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 49% Tomb Raider (2018) I have not played the game in a long time, and this movie won't make me want to play it again. But I would like to see another Lara Croft outing, as it is always good to have another strong woman on the big screen.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 82% Game Night (2018) Despite McAdams and Bateman's winning chemistry, the film slides down the longest ladder mid-way and never finds its way back up - no credit to the script's numerous twists and attempts to outwit itself.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) Despite the sunny Florida skies, Baker shows how easily harsh realities can darken lives. The last scene of this thought-provoking film is heartrending.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Red Sparrow is set up to become a possible franchise, and I do hope it does well enough as it is always welcome to see Lawrence in such roles.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 31% Wonder Wheel (2017) Woody Allen has many ups and downs in his directorial career, and this is definitely in the latter category.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) This Irish actress has the ability to turn a simple, straightforward story into something tender, heartwarming and affecting.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 96% Black Panther (2018) Letitia Wright steals the thunder as T'Challa's younger sister and Wakanda's tech and weapons genius. I would love to see her and Tony Stark in the same room, just to watch them out-geeking each other.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 67% Wonderstruck (2017) The plot may be a little thin, but director Todd Haynes creates a rich and gorgeous film.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 90% I, Tonya (2018) [Margot] Robbie embraces her role completely, displaying much intensity and strength. She ditches her usual glamorous image for one that is crude and crass.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 42% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) This is a decent conclusion thanks to O'Brien's likeable lead. But it is Brodie-Sangster who captivates and tugs at your heartstrings.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

91% Phantom Thread (2018) Just like the intricate and lush gowns Woodcock produces, [Paul Thomas] Anderson has also gifted us with a gorgeous film to behold. ‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4.5/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) [Frances] McDormand fleshes out Mildred's emotions superbly. You really feel her pain, her loss, her rage, her guilt, and her desperation for closure.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 87% The Post (2018) This is a film about journalism and how only a well-oiled newsroom can produce great stories.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 54% 12 Strong (2018) Sure, there is air support - lots of it - but when it comes to winning a war, courage and knowledge of enemy territory and culture take centre stage.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 51% Downsizing (2017) Then, just when you settle into the film's preachy message about class and racial divisions, Payne throws another curveball in the final act, where Downsizing become a climate change advocate. By that time, it is too late in the game for you to care.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2/5 31% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) Unfortunately, it takes a sharp detour and goes down the action route, which ends up misfiring. ‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 85% Wonder (2017) Wonder is truly an inspiring and uplifting story for all ages.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 100% Paddington 2 (2018) Action and laughs are aplenty, but it is the film's overall tenderness and charm that will keep you smiling throughout the 104 minutes.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) There are attempts at 1930s upper-class lushness - lots of art deco touches on the train, period-accurate fashion and shots of European scenery in winter - but it is garnishing on a mediocre dish.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) A visually impressive and heartwarming tale befitting the festive season. ‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2/5 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) Sure, the first film in 2015 was a global box-office success, but that does not mean it warrants a sequel - and a lame one at that.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Stone is a marvel, drawing you in as a crusader. You also feel her strains and internal struggles.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 87% Wind River (2017) The plot is straightforward but tense, and the characters well-drawn and excellently fleshed out by Renner and Olsen.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 28% All I See Is You (2017) There are some issues in this erotic thriller that director Marc Forster wants to address, but the execution is wanting.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 28% Suburbicon (2017) The issue may have some relevance in the current US political scene, but it somehow comes across as very dated.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 82% Brad's Status (2017) There is no better person to play an inadequate and anxiety-filled worrywart than Ben Stiller.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 40% The Mountain Between Us (2017) The idea of pairing Winslet with Elba certainly is attractive. Being acclaimed actors, you know they can make anything work. They definitely give their all, even though the plot treads on thin ice when it cannot decide which genre it wants to be in.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Be prepared to turn into a weeping mess at the end. ‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

0% Sky Hunter (2017) Sky Hunter has all the bells and whistles for an action blockbuster, but is actually an ultra-patriotic propaganda film that showcases the country's latest high-flying arsenal.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

34% American Assassin (2017) Plot holes aside, the film seems to justify revenge killing and condone violence, and that cannot be good in this day and age.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

87% Only the Brave (2017) The performances are noteworthy, but what really stands out are the fires, majestic and horrifying at the same time.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 85% Mary and The Witch's Flower (2018) What deserves much applause is how endearing Mary is, the stunning visuals and lush backgrounds that are painstakingly hand-painted, a Ghibli trademark. ‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

1.5/5 32% Home Again (2017) If Meyers-Shyer is determined to follow in mum's footsteps, she has long way to go. ‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 55% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) If only the movie's many writers - more than 10 - picked up some tips from the cartoons and kept the plot engaging.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) Actress Elizabeth Banks, who was a producer on the first movie, makes her directorial debut here and does a decent job following the same formula.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2/5 17% Pixels (2015) For those of us whose childhood was spent on these games, this comedy will rank high on nostalgia. But that's about it, because this is an Adam Sandler movie after all.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 55% Woman in Gold (2015) [Simon Curtis] must really thank the great Dame Helen [Mirren] for keeping this drama afloat.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 19% Absolutely Anything (2017) [Simon] Pegg's goofy charm is on overdrive, elevating this silly comedy where the best scenes are between Neil and his talking dog Dennis (voiced by the late Robin Williams).‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 66% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) Guy Ritchie should moonlight as a fashion stylist.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)
