2.5/4 88% Whitney (2018) For most of Kevin Macdonald's film, Whitney Houston seems a guttering flame in a public crosswind, with only fleeting celebration given to the wildfire of her success.‐ Slant Magazine

2/4 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) J.A. Bayona's gothic flourishes suggest opioid hallucinations, and they're a welcome escape from the doldrums of the writing, but they seem at odds with the rest of the film.‐ Slant Magazine

1.5/4 47% How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2018) The film's tagline goes "Talk to the girl. Save the world," but at no point does Earth's fate hang in the balance, and talking to Elle Fanning's Zan is no great challenge for anyone. ‐ Slant Magazine

2.5/4 85% The 12th Man (2018) At 130 minutes, it isn't a short film, and its most intriguing elements, much like Baalsrud's rations, are in short supply.‐ Slant Magazine

2/4 84% Cargo (2018) Cargo makes the mistake of benching its menace, banishing the undead to blurred shots on the horizon, while doggedly pursuing its theme.‐ Slant Magazine
