5/10 67% Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) The changes the filmmakers made to this franchise have unpleasant consequences, which dramatically reduce the film's entertainment value, and arguably rob these iconic puppets of the very characteristics that made them special.‐ IGN Movies

4.5/10 19% Mile 22 (2018) So sloppily cut together that it's hard to be impressed by even the film's most hardcore moments and brutal kills.‐ IGN Movies

85% Alpha (2018) The story is straightforward, directional, a direct but difficult path from danger to safety, punctuated by life-threatening adventures. What could have made other storytellers stir-crazy seems to have unleashed something philosophical in Albert Hughes.‐ TheWrap

9.5/10 96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Invites the audience into a complex and impassioned conversation about the power of racism - and the moving image - to influence our lives.‐ IGN Movies

7.3/10 47% The Meg (2018) A big, dumb shark movie that takes itself a little too seriously, and that's the point. ‐ IGN Movies

4/10 69% Christopher Robin (2018) When artists worry about what big corporations might do after they buy the rights to their creations, Disney's Christopher Robin is exactly what they're worried about.‐ IGN Movies

18% The Darkest Minds (2018) Looks a heck of a lot like other superhero movies and YA adaptations, and it's loaded with a ton of on-the-nose metaphors for youthful oppression. But if it ain't broke, don't fix it.‐ TheWrap

83% Puzzle (2018) To say that it's MacDonald's best performance would do the rest of her exceptional career a disservice, but she brings the richness and grace of her finest work to Agnes, and she's instrumental to the film's understated success.‐ TheWrap

51% Equalizer 2 (2018) Robert McCall is a great action hero, but all things being equalized, he deserves a better movie.‐ TheWrap

2.2/10 59% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) The internet is a terrifying place... except for in the dreadful Unfriended: Dark Web. Blocked!‐ IGN Movies

6.9/10 75% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) Joaquin Phoenix gives an admirable performance as an interesting artist, whose life story otherwise gets the short shrift by this conventional drama with a frustratingly narrow focus.‐ IGN Movies

7.6/10 61% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is mostly funny, BLAH-blah-BLAH!‐ IGN Movies

8.1/10 48% Skyscraper (2018) It's a simple-minded but wildly entertaining blockbuster with obvious influences and its own, silly personality. It may not reach new heights of cinematic brilliance, but when it comes to lowbrow matinee thrills, it's the tops.‐ IGN Movies

43% Fireworks (2018) It's a treat to see a film about young love where the young lovers aren't wise beyond their years; instead, they're prone to making stupid mistakes out of inexperience and perfectly understandable fear.‐ TheWrap
Read More | Posted Jul 4, 2018
52% The First Purge (2018) The First Purge may have toned down the insanity, but as the most political ongoing horror franchise, this series is only getting more interesting.‐ TheWrap

88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) It comes close to greatness but stops a little short. And that's not a big deal.‐ Critically Acclaimed

35% The Catcher Was A Spy (2018) The biggest adrenaline pump comes when Berg, stir-crazy after working at a desk during World War II, runs at full speed down a hallway. There's a shootout later on that gets less attention than that one short sprint.‐ TheWrap

73% Damsel (2018) When the film segues into a literal song and dance, it feels like we really are watching a new sort of vision, even though Damsel takes a while to reveal its true angle.‐ TheWrap

64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) It's a tough-as-nails action thriller, and all those nails are hammered directly into the movie's own coffin.‐ TheWrap

55% Tag (2018) The only way to find some of the scenes in Tag funny is not to take the characters seriously. But half of the movie is dedicated to treating them extremely seriously.‐ TheWrap

9.3/10 89% Hereditary (2018) The film's subtle shocks and realistic drama combine to create a dreamlike atmosphere, drenched in psychological horror, which builds and builds to a climax that you won't forget anytime soon...‐ IGN Movies

76% Bernard and Huey (2018) Wades in its own shallow cleverness, and seems to be under the misapprehension that acknowledging the shallowness of the characters and storyline is, in itself, clever. But it only takes a few scenes for that observation to become painfully obvious.‐ TheWrap

7.1/10 58% Hotel Artemis (2018) It's a stylish and amusing thriller, but a hollow one, with mostly broad-stroke characters populating an otherwise ultra-detailed fictional criminal underworld.‐ IGN Movies

7.2/10 86% Lion (2016) Adoption is used a plot point in a lot of movies, but it is rarely explored this well...Here it's about also exploring why the people who raised you are equally important. ‐ What the Flick?!

8.9/10 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) Ocean's 8 is the most satisfying installment in the franchise. The all-star cast is impeccable, the shift in focus yields sharp insights, and the heist itself is wily and enjoyable. ‐ IGN Movies

71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Maybe some Star Wars stories don't actually need to be told.‐ Critically Acclaimed
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2018
73% Adrift (2018) This is a big film with a very intimate soul, a disaster movie that makes an impression without stooping to blockbuster gimmickry.‐ Critically Acclaimed

8.2/10 85% Upgrade (2018) Upgrade is an insidious and intense sci-fi action thriller with big ideas, incredible action and a remarkable lead performance.‐ IGN Movies

40% Mary Shelley (2018) Handsomely produced but as dramatically inert as a high school oral book report, giving audiences the gist of the Frankenstein author's story but never, ironically, bringing her to life.‐ TheWrap
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
6.7/10 84% Cargo (2018) It's an interesting, sometimes moving post-apocalyptic thriller. It's just not quite thrilling enough to get away with all of its ambitions.‐ IGN Movies

76% Lu Over the Wall (Yoake tsugeru Rû no uta) (2018) Lu Over the Wall is many films, all of them vying for the same screen time. It's as chaotic as it sounds. ‐ TheWrap

7.2/10 25% Breaking In (2018) Breaking In is a clever twist on the home invasion genre, with a dynamic lead performance by Gabrielle Union as a mother protecting her family.‐ IGN Movies

8.3/10 86% Tully (2018) An intriguing, effective, engaging drama.‐ IGN Movies

52% Bad Samaritan (2018) A thief breaks into the house of a serial killer. He doesn't know what to do next, and neither does the movie.‐ TheWrap

4.8/10 26% Overboard (2018) All of this is a shame, because Eugenio Derbez is exceptionally well cast as a scoundrel who becomes a decent human being. ‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
31% Super Troopers 2 (2018) What Super Troopers 2 is missing, and what the original more-or-less had, is that underdog dynamic. A big part of the problem is that the troopers are in charge this time, and they're mostly just abusing their power for petty, selfish reasons.‐ TheWrap

86% Alex Strangelove (2018) All of these personal touches add whimsy to an otherwise familiar John Hughes-esque formula, full of awkward comic relief sidekicks, experimentations with drugs, romantic misunderstandings and a cool, often retro soundtrack.‐ TheWrap

4.1/10 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Blumhouse's Truth or Dare is what happens when high concepts crash.‐ IGN Movies

9.2/10 87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) It's not just a great thriller, it's a great film about psychological collapse.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2018
74% Final Portrait (2018) Tucci takes our collective urge to excuse bad behavior in the name of art, a topic we desperately need to consider right now, but he doesn't really put it under a microscope to see why that happens or how that relationship works. ‐ TheWrap
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
28% Sherlock Gnomes (2018) As directed by John Stevenson, it's a mildly amusing matinee adventure, and superior to Gnomeo and Juliet in every way.‐ TheWrap
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
2.1/10 8% Game Over, Man! (2018) Game Over, Man! is a sloppy production, with screaming and bullying used as a placeholder for actual jokes.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
7.8/10 80% Unsane (2018) Unsane is a creepy little thriller, with a concept that could terrify just about anybody, and a plot that wobbles but ultimately stays on the rails.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
9.5/10 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) Isle of Dogs is one of Wes Anderson's best movies, an imaginative and amusing travelogue through incredible settings, populated by wonderful characters, with a lot of heart and even a little insight.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
93% Journey's End (2018) This new film doesn't have a particularly new take on the material. It's Journey's End, told again, and told quite well. So whether or not it will astound you has a lot to do with how familiar you are with the source material.‐ TheWrap
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
4/10 39% Gringo (2018) It comes as no surprise that a movie as aimless as Gringo would miss the mark. It's a series of chaotic events connected by unbelievable characters and lousy coincidence, with nary a point to be found.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
4.9/10 19% The Outsider (2018) Organized crime may be organized, but it's hard to imagine that it's actually as dull as The Outsider makes it out to be.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3/10 18% Death Wish (2018) Death Wish takes the serious topic of vigilante violence and reduces it to melodramatic hero worship, and it's not even particularly good at that. The action is forgettable and the plot barely holds together.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
2.5/10 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Red Sparrow is too disturbing and brutal to be popcorn entertainment, and by trying to make the uncomfortable storylines and interminable torture sequences palatable for the audience, it completely undermines its ability to operate as a serious drama.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
63% Every Day (2018) The story probably can't help posing more questions than it could ever reasonably answer, and the great cast goes a long way toward smoothing out the creases.‐ TheWrap
