3/4 78% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) Much like its predecessor, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is escapist fluff of the highest order - joyful, filled with beloved pop songs and incredibly bizarre.‐ Chicago Tribune

3/4 76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) The dark story didn't need to be sanded down for a Hollywood ending, but after the pain and loss he endures, the little bit of peace he earns while finding his voice is both hard-fought and satisfying.‐ Tribune News Service

No Score Yet Poor Boy (2018) there's something intoxicating about the vibe of "Poor Boy." It's a world you want to explore more, and Pucci's Romeo is a character worth falling in love with.‐ Los Angeles Times

70% Ibiza (2018) Although the script relies on gross-out body humor more often than it needs to, it manages to be deeper and more resonant than most girls gone wild comedies. A truly enjoyable trip.‐ Los Angeles Times

2/4 50% Skyscraper (2018) While it's a completely disposable story, "Skyscraper" is fascinating simply for Thurber's fascination with evolving Johnson's star persona.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 87% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) There's a fresh sense of looseness, lots of play and pockets of weird humor... That's the stuff that makes the movie really sing - not sting.‐ Tribune News Service

4/4 100% Leave No Trace (2018) When civilization feels threatened, starting over in the woods seems not only appealing, but maybe even necessary. Especially when seen though Granik's discerning eye. How lucky we are to have her work.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) The world expands in this follow-up, but it's just as cynical and hopeless as we remember.‐ Tribune News Service

53% Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town (2018) energetic, jam-packed with talent and has a likable indie throwback feel with some memorable moments. But in an ultimately frustrating ending, we question if she even grew at all, and if not, why we spent the time with her at all.‐ Los Angeles Times

100% Half the Picture (2018) An important piece of testimony in the fight for the civil rights of female directors in Hollywood. ‐ Los Angeles Times

2.5/4 75% Damsel (2018) A film that's intellectually stimulating and beautiful to look at, but a bit too arch to truly fall in love with. ‐ Tribune News Service

53% Freak Show (2018) "Freak Show" is carried by a fully committed performance from Lawther, who quivers and swans and roars like the best of the Hollywood grand dames.‐ Los Angeles Times

89% The Gospel According to André (2018) It's a fascinating look at the self-invented André Leon Talley, a bold, daring creation who never let anything obstruct his passions, curiosities and whims.‐ Los Angeles Times

2/4 52% Boundaries (2018) "Boundaries" fails to draw a boundary with itself - going on too long, adding too many over-the-top characters and shying away from the real issue at hand: How can Laura draw a boundary and be respected by the men in her life? ‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The best thing "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" has going for it is director J.A. Bayona, who takes a mediocre script by Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow and directs the living daylights out of it. ‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 55% Tag (2018) "Tag" is, like the game itself, a whole lot of rambunctious fun.‐ Los Angeles Times

2/4 51% Superfly (2018) Lacking the grit and shock factor of the original, this version is just corny and dated.‐ Tribune News Service

4/4 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) For all the slick panache Bird and his team of animators have brought to the style of "Incredibles 2," they've built in the most important element of all - actual danger, which creates actual emotional investment‐ Tribune News Service

2/4 67% Ocean's 8 (2018) Gender-swapped reboots can and should work, but not when they're as underwritten and slapdash as the disappointing "Ocean's 8."‐ Tribune News Service

4/4 99% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) Manages to make the mild-mannered Fred Rogers look downright revolutionary. ‐ Tribune News Service

4/4 89% Hereditary (2018) Where other actresses would play a single note, Collette plays a symphony of emotions. She will nearly bring you to tears and then make you laugh before you know it. Academy Awards don't even feel like enough of a plaudit for this kind of performance. ‐ Tribune News Service

20% Action Point (2018) For all of the manic anti-authoritarian energy that Knoxville and pals generate in "Action Point," it's not directed at anything, which renders it meaningless and leaves the film to fizzle out like a deflated balloon.‐ Los Angeles Times

3/4 72% Adrift (2018) It's downright refreshing to witness the depiction of a woman as independently strong, capable and determined to survive.‐ Tribune News Service

71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) It doesn't feel like a cohesive piece, so while it's at times charming, and does get off the ground in the last act, the getting there is extremely bumpy. ‐ Tribune News Service

53% Book Club (2018) Fonda. Bergen. Keaton. Steenburgen. "Book Club." Sure, "Avengers: Infinity War" came out a few weeks ago, but now this is the greatest crossover event in history.‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/4 68% The Seagull (2018) It captures the true sense of humanism at the very soul of the story, which reflects both the lightness and the true darkness of life.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted May 10, 2018
74% The House of Tomorrow (2018) It's not until the end that everything truly lines up, with Fuller positioned as an original punk. But as a film about punk rock, living on the edge and coming into your own, The House of Tomorrow is a strong debut from Livolsi.‐ Los Angeles Times

4/4 87% Tully (2018) An emotionally deep yet concise rumination on the nature of modern motherhood, on the inherently false premise of doing it all, of having it all and making it look good.‐ Tribune News Service

52% Bad Samaritan (2018) An audaciously wacky film, and the filmmakers manage to get a few things just right. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
3/4 84% Disobedience (2018) Lelio's style seems careful and restrained in "Disobedience" - the colors are drab and muted, the characters speak enigmatically. But there's a bold flamboyance to his style even within the desaturated color palette and claustrophobic environment.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted May 1, 2018
4/4 55% Duck Butter (2018) An instant classic... a truly fresh and modern relationship movie, a portrait of two women who collide, spectacularly, for a moment in time. ‐ Los Angeles Times

1/4 31% Super Troopers 2 (2018) Broken Lizard hasn't changed enough to keep up with the times, turning in a badly degraded copy of the original. Stale, unfunny and offensive is quite the hat trick.‐ Los Angeles Times

2/4 33% I Feel Pretty (2018) The film wants to encourage us to find our beauty within, while turning a blind eye to those external, industrial forces that profit from our insecurity. ‐ Tribune News Service

100% I Am Evidence (2017) "I Am Evidence" is a searing, lucid film that never shies from tough details, especially when survivors share their attacks in a powerful bearing of witness.‐ Los Angeles Times
