96% John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch (2019) It's not tongue-in-cheek; it means everything it puts out there, but it makes sure the audience knows how absurd it is because children are absurd-genuinely, sincerely, seriously absurd. They're weird and deep and dark, and this is the show they deserve. - The Mary Sue EDIT

50% A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding (2018) A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding is standard, frivolous holiday fare: easily enjoyable and deliberately frivolous. But there are some unusually deep subjects at its core. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/4 100% Knock Down the House (2019) If the storytelling is a bit uneven, the story itself more than makes for it. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 83% Midsommar (2019) This is a movie that is designed to overwhelm your senses and to stay with you afterward and it very much succeeds in both of those things. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 85% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) While this movie may not be as smart or subversive as its predecessor, it does still have those qualities in abundance. (It's also, arguably, just as funny.) - The Mary Sue EDIT

5/5 99% Eighth Grade (2018) There's no doubt that watching Eighth Grade will remind you deeply of all the pains of adolescence, but the movie's relatability isn't just limited to that age, which might be what makes it such a transcendently heartbreaking experience. - The Mary Sue EDIT

5/5 98% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) But he was good and kind he loved you, even if he'd never met you. This movie's ultimate message, like Rogers' himself, seems to be simply that that shouldn't be so hard to believe. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4.5/5 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) But the core of the movie is the family dynamic, so the somewhat lackluster antagonist does little to detract from that. - The Mary Sue EDIT

3/5 69% Ocean's 8 (2018) For all it's failings, Ocean's 8 is still a nice piece of summer fluff. The disappointment is that was merely good, and not great. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 83% Blockers (2018) What makes it special is how few comedies, especially teen sex comedies, allow their female characters to be so fully developed, and to have relationships with their own sexuality, free of shame and stigma. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2.5/5 72% Ready Player One (2018) The movie is wall-to-wall pop culture references, and while that's exhausting and tedious, it's also inevitable that you it will manage to push your own specific nostalgia buttons. - The Mary Sue EDIT

2/5 79% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) Buried somewhere inside The Man Who Invented Christmas, there's a really good movie. - The Mary Sue EDIT

4/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) The tone? The giant scope? The philosophical underbelly? A compelling story? ... [T]he sequel lives up to its predecessor in all these ways and manages to stand on its own. - The Mary Sue EDIT

93% Wonder Woman (2017) Have no doubt, this movie does Wonder Woman justice, as well as her fans. - The Mary Sue EDIT
