7/10 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) It's smarmy and snarky - with outrageous post-credit scenes which will delight whether you're a fan of superhero sagas or sick of them.‐ SSG Syndicate

4/10 39% Life of the Party (2018) Floundering, forgettable, cliche-riddled mom-com. Melissa McCarthy's brassy, bawdiness needs a more experienced director, like Paul Feig.‐ SSG Syndicate

5/10 14% Dear Dictator (2018) While Michael Caine is always fun to watch, unfortunately, the pacing/editing is not on a par with the writing. The satire should have been sharper and more subversive.‐ SSG Syndicate

7/10 87% Tully (2018) Fearless Charlize Theron is a chameleon, but this is certainly not your typical Mother's Day movie.‐ SSG Syndicate

4/10 11% The Escape of Prisoner 614 (2018) Flimsy, weakly-scripted, wannabe satirical Western that never takes advantage of its talented cast, particularly Ron Perlman and Sondra James.‐ SSG Syndicate

7/10 84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) While this is a massive comic-book spectacle, what's most amazing is how - after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1996 - Marvel, led by Kevin Feige, now dominates the global box-office.‐ SSG Syndicate

2/10 32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) It's a stale and decidedly un-funny sequel. You could get a contact high just by sitting in the theater.‐ SSG Syndicate

7/10 89% Bye Bye Germany (Es war einmal in Deutschland...) (2018) Bittersweet and picaresque, it's not your usual Holocaust-inspired drama.‐ SSG Syndicate

5/10 33% I Feel Pretty (2018) After an early 'powerhouse' scene in front of the mirror, it becomes shallow, superficial sludge, squandering Amy Schumer's exuberant talent.‐ SSG Syndicate

4/10 77% Beirut (2018) Charismatic Jon Hamm is such a good actor that it's a shame his considerable talents are wasted on this frustrating, murky, disjointed political thriller that looks as if it was filmed in a bunker. ‐ SSG Syndicate

8/10 95% A Quiet Place (2018) Eerie and angst-riddled, it's a tour-de-force for John Krasinksi and an unsettling, totally different kind of creature feature.‐ SSG Syndicate
