1.5/4 35% An Ordinary Man (2018) Nothing in An Ordinary Man rings true; not the location, nor the performances nor the story.‐ RogerEbert.com

24% Tyler Perry's Acrimony (2018) Despite all its Fatal Attraction-style trappings, Acrimony is a bloated drama at odds with itself and its characters. Who exactly are we supposed to root for here?‐ Village Voice

3/4 60% Ismael's Ghosts (Les fantômes d'Ismaël) (2018) The film feels very personal, as if writer/director Arnaud Desplechin were sorting out his thoughts, processes and demons onscreen.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 91% Isle of Dogs (2018) This is a film where a character is literally whitewashed, an act that makes him more agreeable afterwards. Isle of Dogs treats this as a sight gag. It plays more like a confession.‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 96% Black Panther (2018) One of the year's best films, and one that transcends the superhero genre to emerge as an epic of operatic proportions.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 71% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) Something this sleazy should be a lot more fun.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 28% Proud Mary (2018) "Proud Mary" doesn't deserve the lack of faith its studio has in it. In fact, it's almost good, so close to success that its flaws truly become frustrating. ‐ RogerEbert.com

1/4 52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) Washington gives one of his rare bad performances here, turning Roman into an improv sketch filled with tics, mannerisms and an overreliance on his attire.‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 96% Mudbound (2017) Director Dee Rees masterfully executes her character study, filling the frame with visuals as big and powerful as the emotions she draws from her superb cast.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 6% Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween (2017) Like Madea, Perry's getting away with attempted murder.‐ RogerEbert.com

67% Sea Sorrow (2017) Sea Sorrow gives us symbols, speeches and a sense of shame that, in more skillful hands, might have actually been effective.‐ RogerEbert.com

83% Lover For A Day (L'amant d'un jour) (2018) Garrel and his screenwriter, the legendary Jean-Claude Carriere manage to cram a lot of philosophical ideas and concepts into the short running time, but I found myself caring less about them.‐ RogerEbert.com

88% The Lure (Córki dancingu) (2017) It's sexy, fearless, fun and unrepentantly nasty.‐ L.A. Weekly

4/4 94% Fences (2016) The masterful thing about Denzel Washington's direction here is that he doesn't exactly open up the play. Instead, he opens up the visual frame around the players.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 93% Hidden Figures (2017) Theodore Melfi has a light touch not often found in dramas like this, which makes the material all the more effective.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 94% Notes on Blindness (2016) Quite often, the filmmakers go for blurry scenery, surreal events and odd camera shots that feel more like gimmicks than an accurate representation of its subject's affliction.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 51% Almost Christmas (2016) The committed performances by the cast of talented actors are what elevates Almost Christmas above complaints about its familiarity and melodrama.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 23% Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) At 103 minutes, this film has way too much dead weight. Scenes are repeated over and over, and some of the acting would not cut it in a school play.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 82% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) This is what you came to see, and the numerous gruesome horrors are rendered in enjoyable fashion.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 91% A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) (2016) Holm tweaks expectations with the way he presents the material, and his grip on the film's tricky, tragicomic tone is masterful.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 80% Closet Monster (2016) Closet Monster is most successful when it uses fable-like qualities to allow us to feel Oscar's emotions viscerally rather than narratively.‐ RogerEbert.com

1/4 19% Mr. Church (2016) After helming this, an episode of Roots and Best Picture-winner Driving Miss Daisy, Beresford should be forced to join 'Subservient Cinematic Negroes Anonymous.'‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 100% Olympic Pride, American Prejudice (2016) The fearlessly blunt Olympic Pride, American Prejudice is freed from the crowd-pleasing constraints often imposed on the biopic genre.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 66% Nerve (2016) Part of me screamed for this film to get off my lawn, but an even bigger part of me succumbed to playing by its rules. Nerve is too much fun to stay mad at for long.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 16% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) You might say that Collision Course puts the scatology in eschatology.‐ Slant Magazine

3/4 71% The Final Master (2016) This is a juicy, beach read of a movie, the kind of overstuffed story you'd devour in book form while slumming on the sand under an umbrella.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 97% Weiner (2016) "Weiner" is not afraid to take its subject behind the woodshed, and more often than not, he goes willingly.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 98% Almost Holy (Crocodile Gennadiy) (2016) To the filmmakers, Pastor Gennadiy Mokhnenko is a bit of a superhero. I found myself leaning that way too.‐ RogerEbert.com

0/4 2% Nina (2016) You'll see some durable makeup in "Nina." What you won't see is any justification why this film should exist.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 90% Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) Sometimes we need a good sermon, and like the best of sermons, "Barbershop: The Next Cut" dispenses its message with enough humor and wisdom to inspire and linger after it's done.‐ RogerEbert.com
