No Score Yet Māui's Hook (2018) This is not easy viewing - nor should it be - and it is commendable that Māui's Hook faces these sensitive subjects with remarkable openness and grace.‐ New Zealand Herald

5/5 No Score Yet Stray (2018) It is an iceberg of a film - what appears above the surface barely scratches at the behemoth of emotion lurking within. ‐ New Zealand Herald

4/5 60% Yellow is Forbidden (2018) The amount of eye candy on display throughout the film borders on excessive but what allows the film to retain its interest and power is the charisma and story of its subject.‐ New Zealand Herald

3/5 39% Mary Shelley (2018) When it stops the narrative in its tracks and attempts to dig into what made Shelley so brilliant, Mary Shelley occasionally snatches at moments of brilliance itself.‐ New Zealand Herald

4/5 83% Blockers (2018) By giving the parents and the kids equal weight in the story, what could be a bog-standard sex comedy turns into something that could be legitimately moving for some audiences.‐ New Zealand Herald

2/5 40% Anon (2018) While the film's central concept is, if hardly groundbreaking, at least somewhat compelling, [director Andrew] Niccol is so determined to evoke noir in his storytelling that any twists and turns can be seen from miles away.‐ New Zealand Herald

3.5/5 83% Game Night (2018) Game Night is hardly a game-changer but - with the help of a spirited cast and some inspired sequences - is elevated from pedestrian material into a perfect Friday night popcorn movie.‐ New Zealand Herald

3.5/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) Stripped down to its barest elements and just barely scraping by the 90-minute mark, it's devilish in its simplicity.‐ New Zealand Herald

1/5 18% Death Wish (2018) Aimed squarely at drunk uncles and alt-right fanboys across America, Death Wish is a film with truly toxic understandings of masculinity, justice and gun rights in America.‐ New Zealand Herald

4.5/5 99% Faces Places (Visages, villages) (2017) A highly personal document, the film is at once a playful exploration of the weird and wonderful shades that can be found in any person, and a profound meditation on the way societies evolve and change.‐ New Zealand Herald

3.5/5 67% Ocean's 8 (2018) The cast has crackling chemistry, and bounce off each other with that same sense of fun Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts had back in the day.‐ New Zealand Herald

61% 6 Days (2017) It is an 'it-takes-a-village' approach that regrettably strands a talented multi-national cast in stock-standard characters begging for a little more thread to work with.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
