3/4 88% First Man (2018) IMAX's superior technical possibilities are often used for spectacle, and that's fine. But Chazelle has done something more important with the large format: He's made a thematic point.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 31% Venom (2018) It feels like it takes forever to get to the fun weirdness, which is odd since this movie is only really about 100 minutes long. But ... I'm kind of interested in seeing a sequel?‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 84% The Sisters Brothers (2018) The plot is threadbare; the story, such as it is, relatively uninteresting. ... As an acting showcase, however, there is much to love.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) The House With a Clock in Its Walls has a slick competence and cleverness that will appeal to adults and just enough menace to make the film tense but not terrifying for younger viewers.‐ Washington Free Beacon

3/4 93% Mandy (2018) Mandy is an instant cult classic. ... This is a rock opera as envisioned by the lords of hell.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 33% The Predator (2018) The Predator doesn't quite work because it's never quite clear what it wants to be and, when it finally does snap into focus, it's about the wrong things.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 10% Peppermint (2018) You could put Garner in a Taken/John Wick-style high-concept action-thriller annually and I'd show up for each and every one of them.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 25% Mile 22 (2018) Lauren Cohan has real screen presence and looks capable of making the leap from TV to film, rarely an easy chasm to cross.‐ Washington Free Beacon

4/4 93% 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) [2001] endures as a monument to monumental filmmaking not because it's asking big questions or positing big answers, but because it just looks so damn good on the big screen.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 88% You Were Never Really Here (2018) You Were Never Really Here doesn't quite work for me ... but it is certainly worth watching once it hits streaming services for Phoenix's performance alone.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Fans will likely find Infinity War satisfactory. As narrative filmmaking, however, it's a disaster: a bloated monstrosity that smothers to death its most intriguing aspects.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 72% Ready Player One (2018) Ready Player One does what it sets out to do: it entertains, it flatters, it moves. Hard to ask for much more than that from a big budget blockbuster.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 41% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) Awkwardly shot at times, clumsily acted occasionally, grotesquely sincere throughout, but with some pleasingly jarring visuals and a fine keystone performance from Chris Pine.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 47% Red Sparrow (2018) The perfect movie for our times: retro in its sensibilities, modern in its aesthetics, with sex and violence to keep interest from waning in its ripped-from-the-headlines subject.‐ Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 18% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) At best it's a piece of fan service designed to explain why the "Cloverfield Universe" exists-and even then, it's kind of slipshod and lazy.‐ Washington Free Beacon

2/4 75% Mom and Dad (2018) Mom and Dad isn't good, exactly, and your enjoyment of it will depend on how much you like the gag of the central metaphor.‐ Washington Free Beacon
