3.5/4 62% The Little Stranger (2018) "The Little Stranger" makes good on its creepy promise. All you need to enjoy it is a little patience.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3.5/4 93% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) See this movie you must. Maybe you won't fall in love, but you'll for sure want to go steady for a while - at least for the two hours you're in the theater.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2/4 49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) What "The Spy Who Dumped Me" makes abundantly clear is that the movies do not know what to do with McKinnon's energy and comedic skills.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3.5/4 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) You might want to get your blood pressure checked before you see it.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" proves conclusively that Pierce Brosnan can't sing. Or dance. Which makes him perfect for the original musical and its sequel.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3.5/4 76% The King (2018) A fascinating look at a fascinating icon.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) It's like the movie-going equivalent of a beach read.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 55% Tag (2018) The situations in which they find themselves are often crazy hilarious - if you like cartoonish, slapstick violence a la the Three Stooges. Generally, I'm not a fan, but there's a good-natured quality that elevates it all to the level of hijinks.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) In a summer of heist movies, this is the fun one to see.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2.5/4 53% Book Club (2018) It's Keaton and Bergen who carry the film (and to a lesser extent, Mary Steenburgen), and the two of them are funny, charming and believable.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

1.5/4 38% Life of the Party (2018) I'm pretty sure you have better things to do.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2.5/4 86% Tully (2018) It tackles subject matter that seldom finds its way to the big screen and does it thoughtfully. It's not what I expected to see, but it's just maybe something I needed to see.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3.5/4 84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) After 2.5 hours of watching superheroes battle dark forces, I'm exhausted. And elated.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2.5/4 33% I Feel Pretty (2018) I Feel Pretty's heart is in the right place, but it kind of forgot the funny along the way.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 95% A Quiet Place (2018) An edge-of-your-seat family drama that just happens to have monsters.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2.5/4 80% Unsane (2018) Soderbergh uses, to great effect, techniques any fan of ghost-hunting TV shows will recognize - and all on an iPhone 7 Plus! He also stays close to the actors, ratcheting up the tension even more.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 92% Love, Simon (2018) Doesn't everybody deserve a great love story?‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2.5/4 100% Oh Lucy! (2018) Equal parts funny and tragic. It sticks with you long after you've seen it.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2.5/4 95% Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017) It's tapes of an interview Forbes reporter Fleming Meeks conducted with her around 1990 that give the documentary a much needed jolt. We get to hear about her life in her own words.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2.5/4 47% Red Sparrow (2018) A roller coaster of twists and turns, crosses and double-crosses, some of which strain belief but are entertaining in an "Oh, now I get it!" kind of way.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 84% Game Night (2018) "Game Night" gets it right.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 64% Peter Rabbit (2018) You're sure to have a hoppin' good time.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3.5/4 72% Hostiles (2018) "Hostiles" is billed as a Western, but don't expect a shoot 'em up, even though there's plenty of gunfire. There's a lot to think about here, and none of it is easy.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 87% The Post (2018) Ultimately, "The Post" is about abuse of power at the highest levels and accountability, which couldn't be more timely.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) It's based on a true story, but you will shake your head in disbelief - in a good way.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 97% Coco (2017) What kids, and yes, adults, too, will respond to is the eye-popping color, fast pace, music and the humor. But don't forget, parents, that this is a movie about death. Coco doesn't shy away from it, and there are sad moments, too.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2/4 40% Justice League (2017) "Justice League" has its moments (when asked what his superpower is, Batman replies, "I'm rich.") but bottom line? It's no Thor.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2/4 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Too. Much. Talking.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

3/4 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) It's a thrill a minute, which is a lot of thrills for a running time of 130 minutes.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press

2/4 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) I expected a lot of things from "Fifty Shades of Grey," but I didn't expect to be bored.‐ St. Paul Pioneer Press
