C 78% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Like taking a spoonful of sugar, Mary Poppins Returns creates a strong high, but the comedown leaves you exhausted and yearning for something much more substantial. ‐ The Playlist

D 54% The First Purge (2018) The First Purge- for all that it could have said about race and class in America- is perfectly content to provide the bare minimum and deliver some cheap thrills.‐ The Playlist

B 66% Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) The rare horror remake that manages to be superior to the original.‐ The Playlist

A- 100% Shirkers (2018) Shirkers is a film that should be experienced more than explained. That sounds like a cop out, but it's an inspiring documentary about the process of filmmaking, the love of outsider art, but also a cautionary tale about trust and shadiness...‐ The Playlist

B No Score Yet My Name is Myeisha (2018) My Name is Myeisha doesn't pull any punches, and isn't afraid to remind members of the audience that the issues depicted in this film are not universal.‐ The Playlist

D 26% The Nun (2018) There are nuggets of potential in The Nun, but they're ultimately buried in a loud, monotonous experience that plays out like a bad haunted corn maze you just want to leave. ‐ The Playlist

D- 23% Mile 22 (2018) Many will talk about Peter Berg's problematic jingoism but not enough will be written about how Mile 22 - on its own merits - is a laughably bad film.‐ The Playlist

C 30% The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (2018) It goes on the hunt for something of sustenance but comes home mostly empty-handed, and a good Josh Brolin performance is at least some kind of consolation prize. ‐ The Playlist

C 17% Death Wish (2018) Surprisingly, Roth's film has more in common with "RoboCop" than Winner's original, but in chasing after that level of prestigious trash, this version of "Death Wish" sets itself up for lofty goals that it can't quite achieve.‐ The Playlist

B- 83% Detroit (2017) While "Detroit" may try and cover too much ground and occasionally stumble on its ambition, the sheer visceral power of Kathryn Bigelow's direction is worth championing.‐ The Playlist
