8/10 69% Wildling (2018) It's a really smart approach to an ageless tale, and putting aside all deeper meaning, Wildling works on its surface as a cool and spooky monster movie with great performances and some extremely effective gore.‐ Slashfilm

No Score Yet Unlovable (2018) It's a beautiful, hilarious, heart-wrenching film that comes from a place of deep honesty and vulnerability, and [Charlene] deGuzman's performance - inspired, as it is, by the truth of her own recovery - is both courageous and compelling.‐ Crooked Marquee

4/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) [Spielberg] loves pop culture, loves film, loves video games and misfit kids and the 1980s, and Ready Player One is his good-natured tribute to all of those things and, yes, even to himself.‐ Bloody Disgusting

8/10 95% A Quiet Place (2018) It's technically polished and visually elegant, and it's the rare modern creature feature where we get a really, really good look at the bad guys. And damn, do they look good.‐ Slashfilm
