3/4 88% First Man (2018) From start to finish the moon landing segment is arguably the most sensational bit of filmmaking I've had the pleasure of witnessing in all of 2018.‐ MovieFreak.com

2/4 40% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween didn't scare up any of my interest, my ghostly indifference to Sarah, Sonny and Sam's collective plight a most frightening outcome to say the least.‐ MovieFreak.com

3.5/4 97% The Hate U Give (2018) Grief and comedy are almost always intertwined, and Wells' script fearlessly allows laughter to fill the dark void at any number of surprising occasions.‐ MovieFreak.com

1.5/4 31% Venom (2018) Toss in characterizations that are threadbare, half-baked and in one instance borderline inexcusable to the point of being offensive and there is precious little about this one that should get anyone excited to see it.‐ MovieFreak.com

4/4 99% Selma (2015) Selma is an important movie, yes, but it is also a great one.‐ MovieFreak.com

3.5/4 86% Colette (2018) Make no mistake, Knightley is still the primary reason this film works as splendidly as it does. She's spellbinding.‐ MovieFreak.com

2.5/4 43% Hell Fest (2018) Frustratingly by-the-numbers, depressingly formulaic and disappointingly rushed during its climactic stretch.‐ MovieFreak.com

1.5/4 28% Night School (2018) A hodgepodge of ideas, subplots, concepts, jokes and melodramatic contrivances that never coalesce into a coherent whole.‐ MovieFreak.com

3.5/4 87% Love, Gilda (2018) To D'Apolito's credit, she doesn't shout about the parallels between then and now, instead once again allowing Radner herself to do all the heavy lifting for her.‐ MovieFreak.com

2.5/4 17% Little Italy (2018) I find it difficult to find this slice of cheesy romance to be entirely inedible.‐ MovieFreak.com

3/4 69% Assassination Nation (2018) It should be noted that none of the points being made here are in anyway subtle. They're also blatantly obvious. But that doesn't make what Levinson is saying any less vital or important.‐ MovieFreak.com

3/4 67% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) As good as Black is (he's pretty wonderful) and as enchanting as newcomer Vaccaro might be (he's a spunky delight), Blanchett takes command of the movie and steals every single scene she's in.‐ MovieFreak.com

3/4 94% Mandy (2018) This is an aggressive and violent movie yet it is also one that unabashedly wears its heart on its Black Sabbath t-shirt-wearing sleeve.‐ MovieFreak.com

1.5/4 0% Return of the Living Dead Part II (1988) [It's] hard to imagine even die-hard genre fans who adore the original have much that's all that positive to say about this unfortunate misfire.‐ MovieFreak.com

2.5/4 69% The Children Act (2018) Thompson has incredible chemistry with Tucci and also shares a couple of staggeringly intimate moments with young Whitehead that brought tears to my eyes. She is the reason to watch this movie.‐ MovieFreak.com

3.5/4 85% A Simple Favor (2018) [Paul Fieg] brings an elegant old Hollywood gravitas to the proceedings while never undercutting the more playfully juvenile elements that make the film so much fun.‐ MovieFreak.com

1.5/4 34% The Predator (2018) I must admit I actually enjoy Stephen Hopkins' Predator 2 more than I do this tired bit of unfocused pandemonium.‐ MovieFreak.com

3/4 82% Juliet, Naked (2018) Byrne adds a layer of withered humanity that's initially heartbreaking, all of which makes watching Annie reclaim her life as this surreal situation grows more and more bizarre an absolute joy.‐ MovieFreak.com

3/4 59% Operation Finale (2018) Director Chris Weitz... delivers a dialogue-driven think piece that makes up in intelligent nuance what it lacks in unrelenting thrills or suffocating suspense.‐ MovieFreak.com
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2018
1.5/4 22% The Happytime Murders (2018) The pacing of this comedy is rather excruciating, things moving so slowly and with such ponderous precision maintaining interest in what is happening at any given moment is spectacularly difficult at times.‐ MovieFreak.com
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2018
3/4 82% Puzzle (2018) I found it impossible not to be caught up in this story, especially considering just how rare it is to see a film about a forty-something woman like this one told with such restraint and attention to detail.‐ MovieFreak.com

1.5/4 7% Slender Man (2018) The inherent creepiness of the titular character never resonates and as such there are precious few scares.‐ MovieFreak.com

2.5/4 56% Our House (2018) Our House is a slick reinvention of filmmaker Matt Osterman's indie shocker that makes up in visceral intensity and emotional nuance what it lacks in originality.‐ MovieFreak.com

3.5/4 46% Marrowbone (2018) It is a sensational piece of genre subterfuge, the narrative an increasingly byzantine maze overflowing in deft twists and turns.‐ MovieFreak.com

3/4 45% The Meg (2018) People are going to see this movie to watch the actor essentially punch a gigantic prehistoric shark in the face and on that front I'm hard-pressed to claim I was ever disappointed.‐ MovieFreak.com

4/4 86% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) There is a marvelous depth, an underlying layer of benevolence that permeates this story right to its core, Akhavan bringing everything to life with an effortless grace that never feels heavy-handed or didactic.‐ MovieFreak.com

2.5/4 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) While not as annoying as the one in that first Maze Runner or 2009's Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant proved to be, is still rather obnoxious and unsatisfactory.‐ MovieFreak.com

3/4 76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) It is Phoenix, almost all on his own, who makes Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot something bordering on essential.‐ MovieFreak.com

3/4 80% The Devil's Doorway (2018) Aislinn Clarke's confident and sinister debut...[is] more concerned with her three principal characters and their twisting moral ambiguities than it is in unleashing a bunch of nonsensical cheap scares.‐ MovieFreak.com
