Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
76% Dogman (2018) Garrone's resistance to any semblance of logic or reason on Marcello's part is troubling. When the violence and absurdity reach a fever pitch, the serious elements feel like a farce, stuck at the mercy of a film that just wants to push buttons. ‐ Film Inquiry

84% Destroyer (2018) Karyn Kusama's Destroyer is a rare beast, in that it's both exactly the film you expect and a totally surprising subversion of expectations. ‐ Film Inquiry

74% Smallfoot (2018) Adults can still enjoy this in an ironic way. Smallfoot is so unbelievable at times that I couldn't help but feel baffled and perplexed by the creative decisions on display, laughing and shaking my head as it ventured into some strange directions. ‐ Film Inquiry

59% Slice (2018) Eventually, it's all too apparent that nothing here really works. Even at 82-minutes, much of the film feels like wheel-spinning.‐ Film Inquiry

67% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) It's not part of a franchise, nor does it seem to have any real aspirations for a sequel. It's nostalgic for a different era of filmmaking, but it doesn't rely on that nostalgia to a debilitating extent.‐ Film Inquiry

94% Mandy (2018) The pace remains languid and precise, but the violence is relentless and gruesome, a spectacle of blood, dirt, and the most ridiculous weapons imaginable. It's suitably nutty, and it's likely to give the film a level of notoriety for years to come.‐ Film Inquiry

88% The Angel (2018) It's a sporadically interesting, mostly dull history lesson.‐ Film Inquiry

30% Kin (2018) Until it reaches that bewildering ending, Kin is mostly just a snooze fest. It drags along, finding the energy to come to life only intermittently. ‐ Film Inquiry

59% Operation Finale (2018) One can't escape the thought that there might be a deeper, more emotionally and psychologically penetrating version of this film out there, a version that simply never came together in the editing room.‐ Film Inquiry

62% Blood Fest (2018) Constantly pointing out what happens in horror movies is not clever. Characters repeatedly saying "This is usually when something bad happens!" is not funny. And having your heroes recognize that they're in a horror movie is not a novel idea.‐ Film Inquiry

49% Like Father (2018) Like Father is not a radical or subversive family comedy, but the cast has good chemistry, the story moves along nicely, and the big, tear-jerking moments make an impact. By the end, it surpasses its modest ambitions.‐ Film Inquiry

65% Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) The words "restraint" and "moderation" are not in this film's vocabulary. It is savage, hysterical, and deeply bonkers.‐ Film Inquiry

91% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) It's unafraid of gearing its goofy charms towards the youngest of audiences, but even if you've never seen an episode of the show, this movie will win you over with its inspired lunacy.‐ Film Inquiry

21% How It Ends (2018) Even with a good hook, How It Ends suffers from a lack of vision, which is exactly what you don't need in an effects-heavy disaster movie.‐ Film Inquiry

49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) There's fun to be had with this deeply silly slice of R-rated raunchiness, which boasts two solid performances and a breezy approach to the material. But the film struggles to balance its crass brand of humor with shocking bursts of carnage.‐ Film Inquiry

84% The Captain (Der Hauptmann) (2018) The Captain's philosophies are rudimentary at best and recycled at worst, with an added emphasis on the animalistic instincts that we've all heard about hundreds of times. It feels completely pointless.‐ Film Inquiry

63% Uncle Drew (2018) Against all odds, director Charles Stone III's goofy basketball comedy is a nice bit of fun, delivering easy laughs and charming performances without breaking a sweat.‐ Film Inquiry

32% The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (2018) It's a shame that such an idiosyncratic father/son story still feels so rote and recycled, suffering under the weight of its silly desire to constantly verbalize and explain even the tiniest of character moments.‐ Film Inquiry

89% Set It Up (2018) As a sucker for this kind of romantic idealism, Set It Up slapped a goofy smile on my face during its best moments. And as a fan of these stars, I was ecstatic to see them sharing the screen as the romantic leads. ‐ Film Inquiry

57% Hotel Artemis (2018) The mixed results are all the more disappointing when you consider the rich potential of Hotel Artemis' vibrant, seedy noir world.‐ Film Inquiry

87% Upgrade (2018) A gleefully nasty film that relies on a unique mixture of beautiful futuristic landscapes and old-school grindhouse fun. It's small, it's violent, and it gets the job done.‐ Film Inquiry

98% The Tale (2018) Many audiences will likely shy away from the graphic depiction of pedophilia and abuse, but the film's frankness is often its greatest asset.‐ Film Inquiry

49% Superfly (2018) It's simultaneously aesthetically impressive and astoundingly unappealing, shockingly straight-forward and hopelessly convoluted.‐ Film Inquiry
