Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Lonita Cook Coolly self-aware and irreverent, Homecoming, pits a hero in danger against a boy in school, a boy in trouble with his aunt, in an academic decathlon, a boy in love. EDIT

Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Lonita Cook The Avengers creative team has taken a huge risk and it pays off. By the end, the emotional takeaway is so beyond previous experiences, there's no choice but to be completely in. When is the next one? EDIT

Ocean's 8 (2018) Lonita Cook The devil is in the trying too hard. The other installments in the Ocean's franchise were a light mix of crime, glamour, and self-aware humor. EDIT

Hustlers (2019) Lonita Cook Like the PG dance numbers that have no bounce, Hustlers lacks excitement, bite. It wastes its soul and cultural responsibility in the name of "girl power". EDIT
