Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ 89% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) If this happens to be Robert Redford's cheery ride into the sunset, he does so with style. ‐ The Only Critic

A 88% First Man (2018) Once Chazelle throws us into orbit, First Man plays the moon landing so matter of factly, that it makes films like Apollo 13 look childish. ‐ The Only Critic

C+ 72% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) El Royale gets a slight pass because of the edgy content and I'll always be game for Hamm sporting a thick Southern drawl, and Jeff Bridges playing a stone-cold preacher with an interesting past, but it's Chris Hemsworth who steals the show.‐ The Only Critic

B 89% A Star Is Born (2018) The obvious question to ask is 'Why go and see A Star Is Born for the fourth time?' Because, essentially, this film steers the same narrative path from previous installments (almost too closely). The answer is easy: her name is Lady Gaga. ‐ The Only Critic

D 28% Night School (2018) Even Hart is better than this. But neither he nor Haddish have the ability to save what's in front of them. While I give them credit for trying their hardest, it's still not enough to pass the test. ‐ The Only Critic

C 67% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) The Jack Black fantasy has some magic lurking underneath, but has no tick. ‐ The Only Critic

B- 85% A Simple Favor (2018) You'd think A Simple Favor - attempting to be the snazzy and sophisticated thriller it thinks it is - wouldn't hurl so many red herrings at the audience.‐ The Only Critic

D+ 11% Life Itself (2018) This movie is so awful, I almost want to cancel my Amazon subscription out of principle ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B 33% The Predator (2018) When Black employs a tactic and sticks with his brains - like an evolving predator - he can't be stopped.‐ The Only Critic

C- 26% The Nun (2018) This lackluster horror flick won't convert any new prophets ‐ The Only Critic

D+ 10% Peppermint (2018) Peppermint leaves you with a bitter aftertaste ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B 82% Juliet, Naked (2018) A wholesome and screwball comedy‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
C+ 59% Operation Finale (2018) Solid performances prevent World War II drama Operation Finale from being total bust‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B+ 75% Never Goin' Back (2018) Never Goin' Back, on the surface, has the appearance of another low-ball stoner comedy, but ends up being a sweetly natured buddy flick, that would do the likes of Cheech and Chong very proud ‐ The Only Critic

B+ 93% Searching (2018) Despite the story being less inspired than you'd want or the tricks not being as clever as the filmmakers would anticipate - the concept is a bold one, told effectively and pieced together with precision.‐ The Only Critic

C+ 22% The Happytime Murders (2018) There's plenty to laugh at and indulge in The Happytime Murders and I think the voice-work by Barretta is a sensational highlight. Proving there's a solid comedy lurking beneath a script that struggles to find beats and moments when necessary.‐ The Only Critic

A- 92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) The best studio romantic comedy of the year‐ The Only Critic

B- 25% Mile 22 (2018) Brings the action fast and loose. And not much else.‐ The Only Critic

C- 80% Alpha (2018) Gets lost in the stone age.‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
C 45% The Meg (2018) I don't come to a film like The Meg for the script, but I'll stay for some hard R rated dismemberment. Sadly, that's never welcomed here as the film has been clearly amped up for a robust foreign box-office run, and to attract a family audience. ‐ The Only Critic

C- 7% Slender Man (2018) This character should've stayed on the internet.‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
D- 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) The term 'Based on the best selling novel' is starting to become a plague that we can't outrun. ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
C 72% Christopher Robin (2018) Could use some color and imagination ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
C 49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) The Spy Who Dumped Me has ambition. Yet when surrounded by a cardboard plot, flimsy characteristics and ill-timed jokes regarding Edward Snowden, even a talented cast lacks the motive to save the vibe. ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B+ 95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) BlacKkKlansman is Spike Lee's most ambitious film in years; throwing as many logs on the fire of racial stereotyping as he can, while milking solid performances from John David Washington, Adam Driver, and - of all people - Topher Grace.‐ The Only Critic

A- 90% Relaxer (2018) Relaxer is a bizarre, yet special film, which only cements Potrykus as one of cinemas finest young filmmakers working today. ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
A 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Without question the best blockbuster of the year. Mission accomplished! ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B 80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) A fun and gleefully silly musical that grows on you‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
C 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) Sure, praise is granted for some well choreographed slayings, but considering the cost of a movie ticket today, you're better off staying home and waiting for this one on basic cable.‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B 93% Blindspotting (2018) Tackles serious issues with style, but feels uneven. ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
C- 46% Skyscraper (2018) Another dumb and bloated summer misfire‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
A- 44% Hot Summer Nights (2018) In the end, Hot Summer Nights leaves the viewer with an an intoxicating aftertaste and a glow of enthusiasm long after the credits roll. ‐ The Only Critic

B 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Provides a good dose of refreshing fun‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
D 54% The First Purge (2018) Mindless and leaves you with more questions than answers‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Day of the Soldado doesn't match the attitude of its predecessor. But it has a stacked cast, gripping layout, and enough raw action to merit a second look down the rabbit hole.‐ The Only Critic

B 63% Uncle Drew (2018) I suppose if you have a cast that's game for anything, and a script that makes people laugh - anything is possible.‐ The Only Critic

D+ 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) These dinos need to go extinct‐ The Only Critic

B+ 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) The sequel we've all been waiting for.‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B- 49% Superfly (2018) In any case, those shortcomings never take away from the heart of Jackson's performance, which, despite all the ethnic stereotypes seizing in the background, is saying something. ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
C 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) No need to book a night at this hotel. ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B 93% First Reformed (2018) Then again, few people can wear a clerical uniform to great distinction the way Hawke does here, conveying his eventual downfall into ethical submission with utter tranquility.‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) Ocean's 8 knows exactly what its trying to accomplish. It wants to show the audience a good time, and (mostly) succeeds.‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
A- 89% Hereditary (2018) You can believe the hype, Hereditary is absolutely nuts‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
A 99% Eighth Grade (2018) Eighth Grade, you'll be happy to know, is also very funny. No surprise, as 27 year old Burnham has been writing for quite some time and it's clear the director has pose and a promising career as a filmmaker. ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
C 71% Adrift (2018) Woodley's solid performance can't keep Adrift steady‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
D+ 14% Action Point (2018) At least with the Jackass films you could sense the crew was having fun, and just along for the ride. Here, much like the broken down and poorly constructed roller coasters on display, Action Point never works.‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B 55% Tag (2018) Tag manages to pack an emotional resonance, without tethering much into 'bro' territory. ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
A- 94% Sorry to Bother You (2018) The world is going to go mad (in a good way) for this wickedly original and creative thrill ride. ‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
C 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) The film is restless and hardly provides any reason to exist.‐ The Only Critic
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
B+ 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) I didn't love Deadpool as most did, I thought it had some pacing issues and while Deadpool 2 may not be as sharp as it wants, at least it corrects some of those mistakes and in return is the better film of the two. ‐ The Only Critic
