2/4 87% 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

1.5/4 17% 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 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) The first half of Three Billboards is one of the best films of 2017, a perfect mix of heartbreak and humor with a mean streak. ... Unfortunately there's a second half.‐ Washington Free Beacon
