Poster for Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns

7.5

Because it is a positively intoxicating nostalgic film experience, but, it isn’t perfect, and, perhaps by design, I suspect that the film only really works if you have a previous relationship with the original film.

Poster for Lionheart

Lionheart

4.5

Has its heartwarming moments wherein the importance of family is emphasized, but her film mishandles some crucial moments of comedy and drama, and Lionheart is largely much too predictable.

Poster for Destroyer

Destroyer

6

With a tighter script Destroyer could’ve been a true cult-favorite, but the overwrought script that Kusama works with here overwhelms the film.

Poster for Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

6.5

Bandersnatch isn’t as rewarding as I hoped it would be, but it is a compelling experience, at least, on your first few viewings or playthroughs.

Poster for Roma

Roma

10

A patient but deeply moving and human story in the context of something much larger and more historic.

2018

Poster for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

10

The most stylish superhero film of the year, but it is also a film that carries a worthwhile message about the importance of the everyman that gets right to the heart of the web-slinger we all love.

2018

Aquaman

7

An overwhelming cinematic full-course dinner that’ll make you full, even if it does somewhat feel like Wan and the writers mashed up two Aquaman movies and turned them into one.

2018.12.14

2018

Poster for Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle

6

An adequate but unspectacular alternative to the extraordinary and kid-friendly The Jungle Book that Jon Favreau made for Disney in 2016.

2018.12.08

2018

Poster for The House That Jack Built

The House That Jack Built

8

It is Lars Von Trier’s own version of American Psycho complete with self-importance, a loony but brilliant central performance, and fascinating introspection.

2018.11.30

2018

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born

8.5

Although I think the film is uneven and has character problems, I still highly recommend A Star is Born, which, all things considered, is an irresistible, audience-pleasing directorial debut for Bradley Cooper.

2018.11.27

2018

Poster for Widows

Widows

9

A twisty and challenging ensemble film heist drama, which may just be director Steve McQueen’s most accessible feature film yet.

2018.11.25

2018

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

4.5

The beasts are fantastic and Hogwarts still feels like home, but, with that, I’ve run out of positive things to say about this film. It genuinely feels like multiple different films crammed into one unengaging final product.

2018.11.21

2018

Poster for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

9

A well-designed period-specific anthology film that manages to be both morbid and hysterically funny.

2018.11.19

2018

Poster for Suspiria

Suspiria

7.5

Guadagnino’s passion project is an art house film that is fascinated by themes that make it a much more complicated, convoluted, but, honestly, interesting film.

2018.11.16

2018

Poster for Overlord

Overlord

7

A no-holds-barred Wolfensteinesque action-horror war film that is inhabited by characters whose designs are as thin as cardboard.

2018.11.09

2018

Poster for The Other Side of the Wind

The Other Side of the Wind

7

We will never know if this final product is exactly how Welles intended it to be, but I see the method in the sometimes maddening film. The Other Side of the Wind is a diamond in the rough.

2018.11.07

2018

Poster for Shirkers

Shirkers

9

A visually interesting, deeply personal and unique documentary.

2018.11.04

2018

Poster for Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody

6.5

Although there are plenty of problems with the film itself, Rami Malek’s extraordinary performance makes this a film you absolutely should see...

2018.11.03

2018

The Haunting

9.1

The Haunting of Hill House‘s beautiful blend of scares, sadness, and catharsis is the best horror entertainment that I’ve seen this year, even though the ending wasn’t quite as perfect for me as I had hoped it would be.

2018.10.29

2018

Poster for First Man

First Man

9.5

The film’s emotional journey is haunting and devastating. Damien Chazelle has done it again. First Man is a technical achievement and one of the best films of the year.

2018.10.23

2018

Poster for Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale

9

A wonderfully stylish ensemble thriller and exactly the kind of original studio product that the film community should champion in this superhero-dominated era of American cinema.

2018.10.21

2018

Poster for Halloween

Halloween

6.9

A capable but traditional slasher sequel to a great original film, but it feels more like a homage-filled update for new audiences than the sequel long-time fans may have been craving.

2018.10.19

2018

Poster for 22 July

22 July

6

Greengrass’ film lacks depth and its style is far too conventional and inauthentic for the film to be effective and memorable.

2018.10.15

2018

Poster for Apostle

Apostle

7.9

For those willing to accept that jump, the film becomes a glorious mess of intense violence presented with wicked camera movements.
