38% Johnny English Strikes Again (2018) I laughed throughout this funny, fabulous spy spoof, satisfied by the clever ideas and brilliant execution. Johnny English is British through and through and it is the marvelous touches of authenticity and humour that make it zing.‐ Urban Cinefile

34% The Predator (2018) Big, bold and brash, this latest addition to the Predator franchise boasts plenty of aliens amid a lot of noise, running, shooting and gore.But it is all rather silly: all noise without substance.‐ Urban Cinefile

No Score Yet In Like Flynn (2018) More extraordinary than any fictional film script, this 'mostly true' account of Errol Flynn's exploits before Hollywood days is a ripper. Russell Mulcahy has crafted a wonderfully entertaining film filled with exotic locations, action and surprises.‐ Urban Cinefile

84% A Simple Favor (2018) Sex, secrets and a mommy blogger are some of the ingredients of this slick, trashy crime thriller whose stylish elements of glamour wardrobe, sensual content and Serge Gainsbourg pop songs are occasionally at odds with its tone.‐ Urban Cinefile

79% Ladies in Black (2018) Bruce Beresford's Ladies in Black is a real charmer. A winning glimpse of Sydney life in the late 50s, when attitudes are coloured by parochial views & Eastern European influences find their milieu. It's a delight.‐ Urban Cinefile

93% Searching (2018) If it wasn't so good, you could call it gimmicky, but this novel concept using the computer screen and assorted technologies is so well executed that the result is a gripping mystery thriller that never lets up. ‐ Urban Cinefile

95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) This is Lee's best film for a long time and one that lassos the topic of white supremacy and racism in a highly entertaining way.‐ Urban Cinefile

93% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) The Singapore settings are eye-popping, the food looks amazing and the story is a mix of quirky, funny and romantic. You'd be crazy to miss it.‐ Urban Cinefile

87% Annihilation (2018) There are many questions raised in this enthralling psychological drama that begins with a meteor strike, a shimmer and a secret mission to a terrifying but wondrous world where astonishing possibilities are on display. Don't miss it!‐ Urban Cinefile

17% The Darkest Minds (2018) Elevated by its dynamic leading lady Amandla Stenberg (with corkscrew curls & flawless complexion), the film effectively sucks us into its dystopian reality and keeps us engaged. In fact, the film is much more enjoyable than its elements might suggest.‐ Urban Cinefile

49% Superfly (2018) It's the mood that sucks you in: statement hairstyles, attention-grabbing clothes, plenty of bling, cheesy dialogue punctuated by expletives, dim lighting, enticing soundtrack and oodles of attitude. ‐ Urban Cinefile

86% The Wife (2018) A portrait of a marriage, complete with baggage, secrets and lies, the film's pulse relies on the complexities of the central relationship and the tumultuous undercurrent that bubbles beneath. ‐ Urban Cinefile

80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) Feel-good, upbeat and energising, there is no denying the magic in this crowd-pleasing film that sparkles as brightly as the Mediterranean in summer. The casting of Cher is inspired. ‐ Urban Cinefile

51% Equalizer 2 (2018) It's gritty, dramatic, powerful and tense. There is a satisfying pay off and Washington is as good as ever. However, the film has lost much of what made it unique.‐ Urban Cinefile

100% Tea With the Dames (Nothing Like a Dame) (2018) It's not just what she says but the way she says it, that makes Judi Dench's advice to her younger self so moving. Be less susceptible to falling in love, she says. This is one of the wonderful moments in this fly-on-the-wall documentary...‐ Urban Cinefile

84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) If a movie can be defined by the strength of its villain, Avengers Infinity War is a giant. Towering over the spectacle is Josh Brolin's evil despot Thanos, whose striking capture motion performance and physicality comes close to stealing the film. ‐ Urban Cinefile

90% Isle of Dogs (2018) Imbued with Japanese sensibility, Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs is an overtly visual film whose striking imagery, resounding rhythmic score and cinematic references almost overshadow the central story about honour and man's best friend.‐ Urban Cinefile

83% Blockers (2018) There's a lot of fun to be had in this fresh, upbeat and bawdy comedy in which three teenage girls make a pact to lose their virginity on Prom night. But Blockers is far more than a raunchy teen comedy.‐ Urban Cinefile
