Lizzie (2018)

3/5
It's not the searing indictment of the justice system Demange seems to be aiming for, but McConaughey -- all greasy mullet and greasier smiles -- helps charm it to life.

It's easy to overlook the cornball cheesiness of such a fun and joyous film. It's much harder to overlook the glaring lie around which Universal's marketing strategy is built.

Superfly (2018)
It might have been intended to be guilty-pleasure romp. Instead, it's a shameful reinforcement of negative racial stereotypes and a gross glorification of street violence.

Freak Show (2018)
John Hughes died in 2009, but if he were alive today and still making movies, one has to think he would probably be making movies like Freak Show.

The Post (2018)
This is movie for its time, one that -- armed with an Oscar-rich cast and crew -- manages to deliver its messages without climbing onto a soapbox and lecturing.

It's pure formula, but Kasdan and company fill in the blanks well in what ends up as a funny and highly entertaining pleasant surprise of a family adventure.

Darkest Hour (2017)
It scores on any number of technical levels, but it's Oldman's award-worthy performance as Churchill more than anything that proves to be the linchpin to the whole exercise.

3/5
A taut and twisting bit of atmospheric suspense, it sinks its hooks into its audience early and keeps them on the line for the rest of its affecting and briskly paced story.

We all know Denzel Washington is among the best in the business. We expect excellence from him. But that doesn't make it any less enjoyable when he delivers, as he does here.

Lady Bird (2017)
With a delightful lead performance from Ronan and a breezy script built on universal themes, it effortlessly takes wing to become an embraceable exploration of growing up.

While a bit of a slow-starter, when the dam bursts, it bursts, delivering a film that is both darkly comic and deadly serious -- and very weird. (That's a good thing.)

It is at turns charming but unsettling, amusing but poignant, care-free but thought-provoking. But the real story here is Brooklynn Prince, a 6-year-old star in the making.

After a promising start, it fritters away any emotional connection with its audience early on, becoming a cold, meandering and tiresome exercise.

Sometimes it's stupid-funny, but mostly it's just plain stupid. And sloppy. And that won't matter one bit to fans of Tyler Perry's films.

Marshall (2017)
Thanks largely to the interplay of Boseman and Gad, it works, and probably better than it should, with its blend of drama, humor and -- best of all -- fist-pumping triumph.

While it threatens at time to lose its focus, its performances -- and its blend of history and humor -- make it a very enjoyable, and recommendable, film.
