1.5/4 49% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper is like The Towering Inferno meets Die Hard, without being anywhere near as awesome as that sounds.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 70% The Devil's Doorway (2018) More cerebral than your garden variety found footage picture, although it still contains plenty of moments to give you chills.‐ Film Racket

3/4 66% Uncle Drew (2018) An amiable, good-natured film that delivers little of substance other than a pleasant "forget about the outside world" experience for 103 minutes. Sometimes that's good enough.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 87% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) The way Ant-Man and the Wasp change their sizes to surprise bad guys or accomplish some kind of task puts a smile on your face at the same time that it's generating excitement.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Although not as good as the original, the sequel is so interesting and unpredictable that it kind of works anyway.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 100% The Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned from a Mythical Man (2018) A cheerful, captivating movie that looks at celebrity through the eyes of a major star who marches to the beat of his own drummer - and might just pop up where you least expect him.‐ Film Racket

1.5/4 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom might make a ton of money, but it'll be a shock if it doesn't end up being the biggest creative dud of Summer 2018. ‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 52% Boundaries (2018) The movie is often funny and even more often accurate in its depiction of familial enmeshment.‐ Aisle Seat

4/4 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Incredibles 2 was worth the wait, though. The movie takes everything that worked about the original and elevates it.‐ Aisle Seat

2/4 54% Tag (2018) There are some genuine laughs in the first ten minutes. Then they stop almost altogether, and the realization sets in that this movie is a one-trick pony.‐ Aisle Seat

0.5/4 7% China Salesman (2018) Mike Tyson isn't really an actor to begin with, but in China Salesman, he has to act and use an African accent. The result makes Tommy Wiseau in The Room look like Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln. ‐ Aisle Seat

4/4 89% Hereditary (2018) Hereditary is one of the most @#$%ed-up horror movies I've ever seen. No higher praise can be paid.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 73% Adrift (2018) Adrift's combination of nerve-wracking drama and tender love story is enough to render it consistently compelling.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 90% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) There's no way this doesn't end up being the #1 feel-good movie of the summer.‐ Aisle Seat

1/4 6% 211 (2018) In California, '211' is police code for robbery. 211 might better have been titled 219, which is the code for a train wreck.‐ Aisle Seat

1/4 20% Action Point (2018) An abysmal picture - a laughless comedy that runs just 75 minutes before hauling out 10 minutes of outtakes and credits.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) It wasn't necessary to fill in all the gaps about Han Solo's life before Luke Skywalker enlists his help in a Tattooine cantina, but the movie exists anyway, and it's a whole lot better than most cinematic prequels.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 38% Feral (2018) Well-acted, and a solid example of how to build tension by first creating characters the audience can get invested in.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 is a better superhero sequel than Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, and Batman & Robin. It's also better than the original Deadpool.‐ Film Racket

2/4 24% Breaking In (2018) Gabrielle Union gets to sink her teeth into a fierce, determined character. However, the potential inherent in the idea of a high-tech house is barely taken advantage of.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 82% Ghost Stories (2018) A stylishly made picture, combining a retro horror feel with a modern sensibility. Ghost Stories is absolutely one of 2018's don't-miss-it horror events.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 44% The Devil and Father Amorth (2018) Friedkin's remarkable exorcism footage will be the selling point, but the film goes beyond it, raising provocative issues that will have you thinking and discussing long after it's over.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) A one-of-a-kind animated feature so stuffed with goodness that you'll need, and want, to see it multiple times.‐ Aisle Seat

2.5/4 52% Rampage (2018) Sometimes it feels as though movies are made because the technology allows it, not because anyone is especially excited about telling a story. Rampage absolutely comes off like that.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 88% Lowlife (2018) Lowlife is such a wild ride that any cinema showing it might want to consider installing seat belts on their chairs. Every second is electrifying.‐ Aisle Seat

1.5 16% All I Wish (A Little Something for Your Birthday) (2018) Sharon Stone is terrific, and while the movie deserves credit for giving her a strong role, it suffers from failing to rise to her level.‐ Aisle Seat

1.5/4 36% The Leisure Seeker (2018) When a film doesn't know how to deal with a tough subject honestly, it does so with dishonesty instead. The Leisure Seeker is one of the most dishonest pictures of its type ever made.‐ Aisle Seat
