4/10 31% Venom (2018) Venom is not a good movie, but I also want to make it clear that I had the time of my life watching it.‐ Uproxx

7/10 95% The Favourite (2018) In The Favourite, Lanthimos opens up these characters more, yet still keeping the darker aspects of his techniques intact.‐ Uproxx

8/10 90% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) At any point in the film, you can substitute 'robbing banks' for 'making movies' and it still all makes perfect sense. Here's Redford, now 82 years old, in a role where he looks like a gosh darn kid.‐ Uproxx

8/10 84% The Sisters Brothers (2018) The Sisters Brothers doesn't have the same vibe as, say, Unforgiven, but it has the same quality of making us look at things from a different perspective.‐ Uproxx

97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Simply put, Mission: Impossible - Fallout is the best action movie you will see this year. You'll probably leave the theater overcome with an urge to go jumping from building to building.‐ Uproxx

46% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper could have been ridiculous fun! Or, it could have gone full-on '70s era dramatic disaster movie. Instead, it's somewhere in the middle and just kind of flounders.‐ Uproxx

88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Ant-Man and the Wasp is a two-hour mental break when a lot of people could need a mental break.... I mean this as a huge compliment.‐ Uproxx

63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Sicario: Day of the Soldado is an intense, at times morally ambiguous, and gritty thriller that will leave you wanting more. And, now, Benicio del Toro finally has a franchise of his own.‐ Uproxx

0% Gotti (2018) This is the first movie about a mob boss I've ever seen that takes the viewpoint of, "He got a raw deal."‐ Uproxx
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2018
94% Incredibles 2 (2018) It feels like a direct extension of the first film. It feels like a movie that could have easily come out in 2006 as opposed to now, which is what makes Incredibles 2 so fun.‐ Uproxx

9/10 99% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) Yes, Won't You Be My Neighbor? might make you cry, and you should.‐ Uproxx

7/10 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Solo: A Star Wars Story is a great heist movie and an underwhelming origin story.‐ Uproxx

87% Love, Gilda (2018) In the case of Love, Gilda, it's all there. Gilda Radner never knew Lisa D'Apolito, but Radner left the filmmaker one heck of a gift. And watching Gilda Radner perform is still a gift, and now she left us all one more.‐ Uproxx

7/10 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Avengers: Infinity War just might be the dorkiest movie ever made.‐ Uproxx

6/10 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) The first Pacific Rim was a dumb movie that thought it was something more than that [...] Pacific Rim Uprising is a dumb movie that knows it's a dumb movie.‐ Uproxx

54% Burden (2018) Are people in the mood for a movie about an ex-Klansman seeking redemption? Boy, I don't know. But it will have people talking. There's no doubt about that.‐ Uproxx

99% Eighth Grade (2018) For the life of me, I don't understand how writer-director Bo Burnham tapped into the psyche of an eighth-grade girl, but somehow he did. ‐ Uproxx

98% The Tale (2018) This is an excellent, poignant, and amazing film that will stick with you. I can't stop thinking about it. It's a must-see, even though watching it is a very difficult thing to do.‐ Uproxx

8/10 94% Sorry to Bother You (2018) Sorry to Bother You is the rare 'crazy' movie that actually has something to say. ‐ Uproxx

8/10 84% Monsters and Men (2018) Reinaldo Marcus Green isn't here to put a nice bow on the top at the end.‐ Uproxx

6/10 57% The Commuter (2018) Sometimes you're just in the mood to watch Liam Neeson punch people in the face for a couple of hours.‐ Uproxx

92% Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) The main point to take away from this: Terminator 2: Judgment Day is (a) still great and (b) retroactively depressing because these characters all seem to be in a better situation than we are right now. ‐ Uproxx

7/10 78% Last Flag Flying (2017) Last Flag Flying is a road trip movie ... [and] gives a wonderful platform for Carell and Fishburne and Cranston.‐ Uproxx

9/10 93% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller square off ... it kind of felt like I was watching some weird version of the scene in Heat when De Niro and Pacino finally share a scene together only for mainstream comedy stars.‐ Uproxx

6/10 36% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) An average movie with sometimes clunky dialogue ... Liam Neeson makes a great Mark Felt.‐ Uproxx

6/10 50% Downsizing (2017) Downsizing is Alexander Payne's most ambitious movie, but that also might be his worst enemy.‐ Uproxx
