3/4 95% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) Whichever type of Coen film you prefer, there's a bit of that to be found here. Kazan and Nelson are best in show, though it's the shifting tone that's the true focus here.‐ Hollywood News

3/4 97% Blaze (2018) If you love music, this flick is for you. Armed with Dickey's larger than life turn as Blaze Foley, Hawke makes this a fascinating character study.‐ Hollywood News

3.5/4 86% Tully (2018) It's awkward, perceptive, real, and smart. Cody and Reitman have a synergy that you just don't see from most moviemaking teams.‐ Hollywood News

3.5/4 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) It's very much Anderson doing his thing, but as a tribute to our four legged friends, he hits on something pretty universal.‐ Hollywood News

2/4 18% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) Despite some interesting moments, this feels like a failure. The filmmaking is incredibly bland, the story can't figure out if it's having fun with the weirdness or not, and the Cloverfield tie in is gimmicky, leaving you with more questions than answers.‐ Hollywood News

3/4 80% Overlord (2018) In an age where so many special effects are done by computers, "Overlord" thankfully includes some old fashioned gross makeup.‐ AwardsCircuit.com

3/4 55% The Grinch (2018) The whole thing is very family friendly, though luckily not the sort of animated fare that will make parents gouge their eyes out.‐ Hollywood News

3/4 81% El Angel (El ├íngel) (2018) El Angel makes its bones by being a stylish look at a notorious criminal, even if it's never interested in digging too deep.‐ Hollywood News

3.5/4 62% The Front Runner (2018) Armed with a strong turn from Hugh Jackman, Reitman is able to place us right in the middle of Hart's ill fated campaign for President. It's captivating from start to finish.‐ Hollywood News

2/4 81% The Other Side of the Wind (2018) Cinephiles will dive deep into The Other Side of the Wind, no doubt about that. What they find, and if it's of any worth, is up for debate. Frankly, I didn't see much of anything here.‐ Hollywood News

3/4 88% Bodied (2018) This movie is an intense and often amusing experience. Those easily offended will run screaming from the theater, but if you can take hard edged satire, Bodied has a lot to say.‐ Hollywood News

2.5/4 85% Boy Erased (2018) There's nothing wrong with Jared. There's nothing wrong with this film, either. At the same time, Boy Erased never effectively connects to you in the emotional way it desperately wants to.‐ Hollywood News

2.5/4 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Rami Malek is terrific playing Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, that's for sure, but the movie itself falls short of the intended mark. It simply has very little to say about its subject.‐ Hollywood News

2/4 41% Don't Go (2018) Opting more for mystery and suspense than horror, the film takes too deliberate a path and leaves too much unsaid. That can be compelling when done in the service of a more powerful narrative, but too often here the story is just rudderless. ‐ AwardsCircuit.com

3/4 33% The Predator (2018) If you like Black's work, you'll enjoy The Predator, plain and simple. His jokey attitude, taste for violence, and overall tone are in full effect. He doesn't take things too seriously, which is key.‐ Hollywood News
