Poster for Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot

Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot

7.5

2018, Drama, Comedy

We are somersaulting toward a resolution that fails to cash in on the immersive storytelling that came before.

2018.08.09

Poster for The Spy Who Dumped Me

The Spy Who Dumped Me

5.8

2018, Action, Comedy

It just fails to strike a balance, and, as such, the comedy often does not land.

2018.08.04

Poster for Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin

5.0

2018, Adventure, Animation, Comedy

The fuzzy characters doing and saying big-hearted things is all well and good, but it does not remedy the glaring issues in the plot and its messaging.

2018.08.03

Poster for The Darkest Minds

The Darkest Minds

4.2

2018, Suspense, Science fiction

There are blockbuster-level action set pieces. Between these sequences, though, the film reads much more flat...

2018.08.03

Poster for Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade

9.1

2018, Drama, Comedy

This is such a simple concept, but Eighth Grade illustrates it with profoundly elegant precision.

2018.07.31

Poster for Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

8.3

2018, Animation

A scrappy, heart-in-its-hand animated film.

2018.07.30

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

8.3

2018, Adventure, Action, Suspense

No flab, all action, and unapologetic about it.

2018.07.28

Poster for Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You

8.3

2018, Fantasy, Comedy, Science fiction

With this film, he might just be saying too much at once. But too many good things is better than none at all.

2018.07.25

Poster for The Equalizer 2

The Equalizer 2

5.0

2018, Action, Suspense, Crime

It is a sequence like that one that shows us glimpses of The Equalizer, which is easily a more thrilling low-key action film.

2018.07.23

Poster for Unfriended: Dark Web

Unfriended: Dark Web

5.8

2018, Horror

The plot of the film is a silly game of smoke and mirrors, leading us down a path and then attempting to pull the rug out from under us.

2018.07.20

Poster for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

4.2

2018, Music, Comedy, Love

Beyond the occasional fun acting performance, though, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is a lacking experience.

2018.07.20

Poster for Skyscraper

Skyscraper

4.2

2018, Drama, Action, Suspense

Two to three set pieces use the eponymous building to good effect. Otherwise, it is an empty action experience without character, wit, or intelligence.

2018.07.15

Poster for Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

6.7

2018, Fantasy, Animation, Comedy

Light-hearted and well-intentioned, a wholesome family film with an animation guru pulling the strings.

2018.07.15

Poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp

7.5

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Comedy, Science fiction

The action serves its necessary function. The comedy is more effective than your average action venture.

2018.07.06

Poster for The First Purge

The First Purge

7.5

2018, Horror, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

Gives us characters worth rooting for in an environment that is actively trying to suppress them, both textually and subtextually.

2018.07.04

Poster for Uncle Drew

Uncle Drew

5.0

2018, Comedy

A chuckle here and there. But ultimately it is boilerplate plotting, derivative comedy, and airless depictions of basketball.

2018.06.30

Poster for Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

5.8

2018, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime

Narratively divorced, Soldado remains a tough sell. It is hard on the soul, bleak for the sake of bleak, its only justification appearing to be that the world really is that bleak anyway.

2018.06.29

Poster for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

4.2

2018, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

The only genuine aspect is the action set pieces. They are flashy and loud and violent and, occasionally, quite effective. Everything else feels phoned in.

2018.06.19

Poster for Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

8.3

2018, Documentary

The documentary may read at large stretches like a greatest hits reel of Rogers’ program, but in a sense that is enough to make the point.

2018.06.19

Poster for Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2

7.5

2018, Adventure, Animation, Action, Comedy

A really good Pixar movie. It is a fairly good superhero movie. As a long-awaited follow up to The Incredibles, it doesn’t stack up as strongly.

2018.06.16

Poster for Tag

Tag

5.8

2018, Comedy

A light, high concept comedy with a loose script and charismatic actors who are playfully working to hide the looseness.

2018.06.15

Poster for SuperFly

SuperFly

5.8

2018, Action, Suspense, Crime

The numerous issues with Superfly, surprisingly, do not take away from what makes the film compelling.

2018.06.13

Poster for First Reformed

First Reformed

9.1

2018, Drama, Suspense

Undoubtedly a film whose intensity and psychological weight are palpable, unshakable entities.

2018.06.10

Poster for Ocean's Eight

Ocean's Eight

5.8

2018, Action, Comedy, Suspense, Crime

The strong acting, the lavish costume design, the snappy editing. It all adds up. But it isn’t the well-oiled machine that it thinks it is.
