3/4 94% Sorry to Bother You (2018) While it doesn't always work, Riley has clearly held nothing back and after 25+ years of using his voice and unique point of view in the world of hip-hop, this is as audacious an entry into the world of feature filmmaking as one could possibly make.‐ Associated Press

3/4 93% Incredibles 2 (2018) It's still fun to watch smart storytellers like [Brad] Bird working within the system and using his platform to self-evaluate or comment on what's going on, even if the conclusion is a little flimsy.‐ Associated Press

2.5/4 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) While Blanchett and Bullock are predictably solid in their roles and get at least a few memorable moments of worthy banter, it's Hathaway who really steals the film with a wickedly on-point satiric turn a spoiled star.‐ Associated Press

2.5/4 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" gets away with its unoriginality for the most part, but this franchise's desperation is starting to show. It's time to evolve or go extinct.‐ Associated Press

93% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2018) It's relentlessly cold-hearted that you get the sense that Zhenya and Boris might prefer it if their son doesn't turn up - they are so deeply selfish and resentful of his existence..Loveless is a beautifully shot and elegantly constructed film.‐ Associated Press

40% Justice League (2017) Although marginally better than Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, director Zack Snyder's latest is still a profound mess of maudlin muscles, incoherent action and jaw-droppingly awful CGI. It is big, loud, awful to look at and oh-so-dumb.‐ Associated Press

85% It (2017) Instead of building tension and suspense, It just jumps from scene to scares with no connection or coherence to thread them together other than the mere fact that they've been placed on top of one-another, like toys mixed up from different sets.‐ Associated Press
