3/5 89% Skate Kitchen (2018) Crystal Moselle continues proving to have a knack for doing justice filming abnormal types of people, but still needs to hone her overall storytelling craft. Regardless, consider it the skateboarding version of American Honey‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 97% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) This might sound bizarre to say about a romantic comedy, but I deeply wished critics were screened Crazy Rich Asians in IMAX‐ Flickering Myth

4/5 97% BlacKkKlansman (2018) It's rare that a movie is both this fun yet simultaneously elicits flat-out rage. If at times some of the KKK's actions feel overblown and exaggerated, the present day footage at the back end of the film will shut you right up.‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 48% The Meg (2018) Wonky pacing and superfluous dramatic moments aside, the WrestleMania-sized tantalizing prospect of Jason Statham taking on a massive shark delivers in gloriously stupid fun‐ Flickering Myth

4/5 70% Christopher Robin (2018) Someone would have to be coldhearted to not smile watching Christopher Robin, whether it's from tapping your feet to the classic songs or soaking in the valuable life lessons‐ Flickering Myth

2/5 83% Puzzle (2018) The actual puzzle solving somehow feels like a gimmick more than anything; a failed attempt to present a traditional drama in a unique light‐ Flickering Myth

1/5 19% The Darkest Minds (2018) The Darkest Minds isn't concerned with telling a coherent story or showing us interesting characters, only existing to set up a franchise. That failed, but worst of all, everything in this movie we have seen before and done better‐ Flickering Myth

2/5 44% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) Dining out at a fancy restaurant somewhere in Europe, Kate McKinnon's character becomes overrun with the need to let out some diarrhea, which is kind of what the filmmakers are doing here‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 91% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) Like most good animated movies, there's something in it for everyone... even a Stan Lee cameo that sends the best possible message to comic book fandom; forget label wars, let's just celebrate what's good no matter its creator.‐ Flickering Myth

1/5 58% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) Cards Against Humanity makes everything a little bit better, but all it does here is make the stench smell a little less foul‐ Flickering Myth

2/5 49% Equalizer 2 (2018) Outside of the performance from Denzel Washington, which is obviously good, the only engaging dynamic here is Robert trying to set Miles on the right path. The Equalizer 2 is fairly boring whenever they aren't interacting together‐ Flickering Myth

5/5 98% Eighth Grade (2018) Eighth Grade is absolute vital viewing for anyone in the age range and parents; the best movie of 2018 so far, no question about it. Elsie Fisher better receive an Oscar nomination‐ Flickering Myth

4/5 94% Blindspotting (2018) There are more incredibly defined layers to the characters and thematic takeaways in Blindspotting than the human mind can process in a single viewing‐ Flickering Myth

1/5 14% Damascus Cover (2018) The only thing anyone will remember about Damascus Cover is that it marks the final on-screen appearance of the now deceased tremendous actor John Hurt‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 75% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) It doesn't reach the emotional heights that it should, but has a worthy message in artistic sensibilities being an outlet to defeat the all-consuming desire for alcohol; the tremendous talent from Phoenix is enough to hold together what doesn't work‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 48% Skyscraper (2018) Skyscraper may not reach the sky but it certainly doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel; it's founded on propulsive momentum and never looks back.‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 61% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) It turns out you don't actually need a hotel to feel like Hotel Transylvania; the monster cruise is a worthy substitute‐ Flickering Myth

2/5 52% The First Purge (2018) Easily a step up from the last two films thanks to McMurray's stylistically brutal direction of the action sequences, but you can't help feeling that this concept will work far better as a television series‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 51% Boundaries (2018) At one point a character states that saving a human being is difficult, and in addition to working as a nice juxtaposition to animal rescuing, it's a sentiment felt watching Boundaries‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 87% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Ant-Man and the Wasp is a nice lighthearted breather from recent devastating MCU events; this isn't the first time Ant-Man has had a tough act to follow, and judging from this sequel, it won't be the last, as the successful levity is welcome‐ Flickering Myth

4/5 94% Sorry to Bother You (2018) The last 30 minutes or so is an amalgamation of all present themes funneled through what basically amounts to a f***** up modern-day episode of The Twilight Zone; Nothing can prepare you‐ Flickering Myth

2/5 53% Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town (2018) As far as the direction goes, Papierniak clearly wants the film to resemble a punk rock album. Still, it is impossible to shake the feeling that for an 86 minute film, Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town has more dead air than jolts of electricity‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 55% Tag (2018) It's rare in this day and age when Hollywood puts out something so loony I genuinely have no idea what the hell I just watched. Tag is childish madness that needs to be seen to be believed‐ Flickering Myth

2/5 51% Superfly (2018) For a film created by a music video director, there surprisingly isn't much flair or pop; it's about as dime-a-dozen a narrative about a criminal wanting to escape his current life could be‐ Flickering Myth

4/5 93% Incredibles 2 (2018) While children and adults will both be entertained alike, there is a great humanist message in the film that never veers too far into an aggressively blunt political allegory, but one that simply draws thoughtful parallels to current events‐ Flickering Myth

4/5 90% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) Hearts Beat Loud is a charming indie rock musical that succeeds on the strength of characterization and the performances from Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons, the latter of which is one very talented singer and actress‐ Flickering Myth

2/5 58% Hotel Artemis (2018) Someone give Sofia Boutella an entire franchise, not necessarily related to Hotel Artemis, but anything. She can carry it and is constantly proving herself to be the best part of some very underwhelming movies‐ Flickering Myth

2/5 67% Ocean's 8 (2018) Ocean's 8 is a breezy, flashy heist flick that will quickly pass some time on a hot summer day, but really, these actresses deserve more complex characters to inhabit, blockbuster or not‐ Flickering Myth

5/5 89% Hereditary (2018) Are events more tragic or less tragic depending on if those involved had a choice in the situation or not? All I know for sure is that this flat-out unsettling, spine-tingling masterpiece is arguably the best film of the year and all around unforgettable‐ Flickering Myth

2/5 73% Adrift (2018) Foreshadowing can be beneficial to a film experience or greatly detract from it by causing a frustrating degree of clichéd predictability. Adrift suffers from the latter‐ Flickering Myth

4/5 94% First Reformed (2018) The diary allows for Toller's narration to feel natural and place us into the mind on the verge of destruction, and the closing moments express the sensation of good and evil; the closing shot alone is worth the price of admission‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 68% The Seagull (2018) There really isn't much to go on with any of these characters besides the connecting tissue of unrequited love, but if you're like me and find that to be an alluring and inherently romantic quality, you just might be able to go along with The Seagull‐ Flickering Myth

4/5 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) A spectacularly exciting journey with terrific casting and loads of fan service that will honestly probably make even novices with the lore smile, but the prequels do need to find a better middle ground between fan service and taking storytelling risks‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 was never going to surpass the original, but it is the second coming of something immensely fun and unlike anything else in the oversaturated superhero market. In particular are two huge set-pieces that are going to leave audiences in stitches‐ Flickering Myth

4/5 85% Disobedience (2018) Lelio is one of a kind at creating beautifully drawn portraits of disenfranchised types that deserve respect, showing us the ugliness of humanity in grounded ways; contains fearlessly committed performances from Weisz and McAdams‐ Flickering Myth

3/5 86% Tully (2018) There is a deeper dynamic going on between Marlo and Tully that is going to elicit mixed reactions, but also thought-provoking responses, and a bunch of stressed-out mothers are also going to come away from this film ready to hire some night nannies‐ Flickering Myth
