89% A Star Is Born (2018) A Star is Born is a series of cliches that work well together. When the music is playing and Cooper and Gaga sing, it's magic. ‐ Culturess

No Score Yet We Have Always Lived in the Castle (2018) We Have Always Lived in the Castle shows off Stacie Passon's directorial flair, and both Farmiga and Daddario are exemplary in roles that would be difficult to translate off the page. ‐ Citizen Dame

100% Tea With the Dames (Nothing Like a Dame) (2018) The movie is akin to sitting down with your friends and having a great chat. I'd easily have watched a longer cut of this.‐ Citizen Dame

11% Life Itself (2018) It's actually funny that Fogelman enjoys referencing Tarantino so much in this movie because the script kills off more characters than Reservoir Dogs. ‐ Culturess

3/5 59% Operation Finale (2018) Operation Finale is a film perfectly suited for the beginning of September. It'll keep you engaged in the moment, yet will disappear completely by the time the real awards contenders pop up in a few weeks. ‐ CC2K

71% Christopher Robin (2018) Instead, we're gifted 104-minutes of bland acting with little sense of worldbuilding. Christopher Robin's story isn't unique or interesting.‐ CC2K

93% Blindspotting (2018) Blindspotting is a film audiences will be deconstructing for years to come. It's a film that wears its contemporary bent on its sleeve while simultaneously bemoaning how being contemporary has robbed the city of Oakland of its diversity.‐ CC2K

49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) The Spy Who Dumped Me isn't a comedic masterpiece, but it's a pure summer popcorn flick you won't want to dump at the box office.‐ Culturess

2/5 44% Hot Summer Nights (2018) Hot Summer Nights will appease fans of Chalamet by his presence alone, but this is a movie that plays like a CW-infused take on the nostalgic drug drama. ‐ Spectrum Culture

6/10 90% Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood (2018) Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood is a mixed bag. It's an intriguing look at an unseen Hollywood player who you either love to hate or believe wholeheartedly.‐ The Young Folks

97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Mission: Impossible - Fallout is the most emblematic of the entire series. If you've watched this one, odds are you've watched all the previous ones.‐ Culturess

6/10 100% McQueen (2018) McQueen sates audiences' desires to hear about the man's origins, the mania that fueled his creations, and his ultimate downward spiral, but it only ever feels like a pattern waiting to be sewn together.‐ The Young Folks

4/10 76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) There's a sense of disjointedness to the entire affair, as if Van Sant can't seem to figure out whether he wants to tell a story about addiction or a story about disability; Lord knows he doesn't see any way to bridge the two.‐ The Young Folks

7/10 79% Love, Cecil (2018) Listening to the combination of recitation and words is the perfect embodiment of why Beaton is so compelling. He captures the beauty of a time gone by while also being enamored that he lives within it.‐ The Young Folks

2/5 44% The Yellow Birds (2018) The Yellow Birds doesn't say much of anything outside of the mundane. The trio of young men at its center are compelling enough, but the entire ordeal feels like a mash-up of countless other movies.‐ Spectrum Culture

1.5/5 40% Mary Shelley (2018) The Shelleys are cut from the CW world, or from another bad Douglas Booth-starring literary film, 2013's Romeo and Juliet.‐ Spectrum Culture

88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Actually, the events of Ant-Man and the Wasp don't tie into Avengers: Infinity War, and this creates a weird respite, reminding audiences of the entertainment derived from past Marvel features like Thor: Ragnarok and Spider-Man: Homecoming.‐ Culturess

8/10 100% Summer 1993 (Estiu 1993) (2018) Artigas and Robles are utterly spellbinding for the entirety of Summer 1993's runtime. Their pure joy feels improvised, captured in the moment by Simón's camera. ‐ The Young Folks
