Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 97% BlacKkKlansman (2018) BlacKkKlansman is pretty enjoyable as a low-key police procedural, but its primary function is to put a comic bull's-eye on the backside of white supremacy.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3.5/4 98% Eighth Grade (2018) A unique movie that can crush your soul and leave you in stitches at the same time.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 62% Dog Days (2018) For dog lovers, "Dog Days" should have plenty to get you nodding, though a more focused and better-written film would be more likely to climb the ranks of your all-time favorites.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 48% The Meg (2018) The Meg was never going to be "Jaws," but it still feels like a missed opportunity to be something of its own.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2/4 19% The Darkest Minds (2018) The Darkest Minds has its moments, but for the most part, it's like watching a dubbed VHS copy of a dubbed VHS copy. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 70% Christopher Robin (2018) In some ways, "Christopher Robin" might be better suited for a night out for Mom and Dad rather than a Saturday afternoon with the whole family, but it's doubtful that's what Disney is hoping for.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3.5/4 No Score Yet Operation Toussaint (2018) Operation Toussaint feels more like a promotional film than a strictly traditional documentary, but it's hard to argue with its message. This is a film that will stick with you.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3/4 91% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) Though it shares in the spirit of that kind of movie, it isn't quite as sharp or effective, but if you go in with modest expectations, "Teen Titans Go! To the Movies" should make for a pleasant surprise.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3/4 94% Blindspotting (2018) A sense of impending doom about "Blindspotting," a unique, stylish and definitely R-rated drama from a pair of longtime friends that works in dramatic tone changes, guiding the audience towards a provocative finish.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

4/4 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Once again, Cruise pours every ounce of adrenaline-junkie effort onto the screen, skydiving, riding motorcycles, climbing cliffs, flying helicopters and yes, running really fast.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

4/4 96% Three Identical Strangers (2018) A lot of perfectly good documentaries show their cards early, establish a unique premise and let the audience explore a topic at a leisurely pace, without much in terms of surprise. "Three Identical Strangers" is not one of those documentaries.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 61% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) The zany variety of all said characters might be the film's strongest point, though it quickly becomes apparent the filmmakers are using a lot of flailing limbs and herky-jerky motion to make up for lack of good writing.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 48% Skyscraper (2018) "Skyscraper's" stunts are just a hair too much - even with "The Rock" at the helm.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2018
3.5/4 100% Leave No Trace (2018) Leave No Trace's exploration of powerful themes like the power of community and the kindness of strangers turns what appears to be a sad story on the surface into something very worthwhile.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3/4 88% Whitney (2018) Some audiences may also be frustrated by its tendency to focus on the seedy underbelly of Houston's story rather than celebrate her music, but "Whitney's" message remains tragic either way.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3.5/4 87% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) "Ant-Man and the Wasp" is another great example of what comic book movies should be: a good time.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3.5/4 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) At a time when border immigration issues dominate the news cycle, Sollima's film should draw even more attention.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
3/4 65% Uncle Drew (2018) In spite of its shortcomings, "Uncle Drew" manages to capture the joy of basketball. And for a movie inspired by a TV commercial, that's a pretty noble achievement.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 68% The Seagull (2018) While The Seagull certainly has its strong points, the weak points make it difficult to recommend fully. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3/4 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) It should make for a satisfying sequel to 2015's "Jurassic World" and a worthwhile entry to a series that has admittedly struggled to match the quality of that first '93 film.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3/5 75% The Gardener (2018) Audiences may leave feeling they'll never approach Cabot's level of expertise, but they may conclude they have enough time to throw together a little vegetable garden after all.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 55% Tag (2018) As plots go, "Tag's" is about as thin as they come, and at times it is clear that the premise isn't quite enough to carry 100 minutes worth of action.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 90% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) Maybe a little too brooding for its own good, and its character-driven nature may leave audiences wondering just what conflict is driving the story at times, but it finishes with a nice third act.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2018
3/5 93% Incredibles 2 (2018) The production mirrors what fans will remember from the original film, with stylish animation, bright colors, constant wit and an energetic vibe - plus return visits from familiar faces.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3/4 39% Mary Shelley (2018) Fanning is excellent as Mary, emoting maturity and growing wisdom juxtaposed against fading youth and innocence.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
No Score Yet In Emma's Footsteps (2018) It's an intriguing effort, and Moyer is solid and sympathetic in her portrayal of the prophet's grieving widow. But "In Emma's Footsteps" is too often undercut by its own execution.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3 85% Mountain (2018) Once you get past the eye candy, though, you find a curious film that is alternately inspiring, ponderous and tedious.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 58% Hotel Artemis (2018) The final product doesn't feel quite as skillful as other films in its genre, and its content and tone will limit its audience, but altogether, "Hotel Artemis" offers a few high moments.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3/4 67% Ocean's 8 (2018) In spite of a truly stellar cast, the chemistry never quite hits the same groove as the other movies. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 82% In the Last Days of the City (Akher ayam el madina) (2018) "Last Days of the City" is a moody film, only lightly guided by plot, and often more concerned with atmosphere than story.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2018
73% Adrift (2018) The sad reality of having to stick with a true story anchored by a two-dimensional love story (at least two-dimensional according to what we're seeing here) ultimately sinks "Adrift." ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2018
3/4 96% 1945 (2017) The story is all the more effective thanks to its sparse and deliberate pacing, punctuated by a minimal soundtrack and black-and-white visuals.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

1.5/4 17% Show Dogs (2018) Without a clever script to back it up, the result feels like a much better fit for a slow day on Netflix than a full-price ticket to the theater‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3/4 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) This is a film that is meant to be a change of pace from your run-of-the-mill superhero movie - kind of an R-rated "Guardians of the Galaxy."‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
3/4 89% Pope Francis - A Man of His Word (2018) Altogether, it's a lot to take in, and though often the film is a celebration of its subject, it's also easy to get lost in the imagery of the subjects the pope is addressing.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
3/4 94% RBG (2018) Overall, "RBG" will be celebrated by audiences sympathetic to Ginsburg's ideology, but the film will still be interesting for those who have their own dissenting opinions.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
2.5/4 53% Book Club (2018) For an appropriate audience, it's a fun and forgettable movie that probably would have worked a lot better if it spent more time on the relationship among the women themselves. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
2.5/4 97% The Endless (2018) The interesting premise and the measured storytelling style help "The Endless" overcome the limitations of its modest budget, and even if the final outcome isn't hugely satisfying, the film should be a nice option for genre fans.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
1.5/4 25% Breaking In (2018) For a film being advertised as a kind of twisted tongue-in-cheek option for Mother's Day, "Breaking In" will leave most audiences thinking there are better ways to show affection for Mom.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
2/4 38% Life of the Party (2018) You don't really expect depth from a slapstick comedy like this, but Life of the Party is sincere enough to make its developmental flaws more obvious.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

3/4 100% The Judge (2018) Couched in beautiful cinematography that highlights the exotic architecture of Palestine, the documentary follows al-Faqih's story through her early legal background to showcase her unique and groundbreaking position.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
2/4 86% Tully (2018) Maybe with a revision or two, that twist might have worked. Sadly, though, it just doesn't.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
2/4 26% Overboard (2018) There are movies that deserve remakes, even movies that need remakes, but with Overboard, too often you're just left asking, "Why?"‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 4, 2018
2.5/4 86% Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (2018) For an artist as enigmatic as Jones... an enigmatic documentary may be the best thing we could hope for.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 4, 2018
3.5/4 89% Itzhak (2018) Even for viewers who aren't particularly religious, the soul of Perlman's music will make the documentary a spiritually uplifting experience.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 4, 2018
2.5/4 47% Marrowbone (2018) It's not the best horror movie you're going to find, but it will do on a quiet evening when you can hear noises in the attic.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
3/4 95% Sweet Country (2018) Altogether, Thornton's film is a moody and dark meditation -- a grim portrait of an Old West that will be both familiar and foreign to American audiences. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
3/4 92% Lean on Pete (2018) Lean on Pete isn't a family-friendly film, but its powerful message about the importance of family will stay with anyone willing to stick it out.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
3/4 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Avengers: Infinity War isn't a perfect film, but it's probably exactly what it wants to be.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 97% Leaning Into the Wind (2018) For many audiences, Riedelsheimer's effort will remain an acquired taste.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
