Poster for Searching



A mystery with as much to say about parenting as posting, and a remarkably in-the-moment statement.

Poster for Papillon



The parts are all here and competently assembled, but the punch of the bigger themes Noer and Guzikowski are aiming for never land flush.

Poster for The Meg

The Meg


The film has moments of promise that are quickly snuffed out by exposition that’s neither needed, wanted or interesting.

Poster for The Spy Who Dumped Me

The Spy Who Dumped Me


A goofy, enjoyable time-waster.

Poster for Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin


Settles awkwardly between a child’s fable and wistful remembrances from grandparents.

Poster for Blindspotting



Reaches a memorable height, becoming both an urgent social comment and an exciting filmmaking debut.

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout


Say what you what about the summer movie season so far, Fallout is here to make you remember how breathlessly fun it can be.

Poster for The Cakemaker

The Cakemaker


You may know where The Cakemaker is going, but getting there is a sweet and satisfying trip.

Poster for Unfriended: Dark Web

Unfriended: Dark Web


Does a great job upholding the integrity of the “real time computer screen” gimmick. But from the opening setup, this one carries more eerie authenticity.

Poster for The Equalizer 2

The Equalizer 2


Does offer plenty to like but little of it can match the style or the vibe of the original.

Poster for Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace


Broaching a variety of relevant social concerns without ever raising its voice, yet cutting so deeply you may not get out of the theater with dry eyes.

Poster for Skyscraper



Wins you over with pure “are you not entertained?” tenacity.

Poster for Whitney



An emotional ride, a thorough and respectful take on a mysterious, superstar life.

Poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp


Has an unassuming vibe that is infectious fun, and the perfect palate cleanser before another bite of Thanos.

Poster for Mountain



For those enthralled by such things (my hand is up) it might as well be mountain porn, questioning our fascination even as it’s feeding it.

Poster for Uncle Drew

Uncle Drew


Basketball fans will appreciate a few self-aware inside gags, but with the novelty of the superstar-in-disguise long gone, Uncle Drew feels like little more than the corporate branding love child of Pepsi and Nike.

Poster for The Catcher Was a Spy

The Catcher Was a Spy


Its power comes from its intimacy, getting just close enough to a mysterious, fascinating figure without disrespecting that figure’s commitment to mystery.

Poster for Tag



Stays funny and hip throughout, pausing just long enough to reflect on friendship and adulthood without getting sappy.

Poster for Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2


Ranks as one of the best Pixar sequels, even with all it leaves on the table.

Poster for The Seagull

The Seagull


Getting the competing themes to work in unison is no easy feat, and this latest film version is a well-intentioned testament to that very challenge.

Poster for Adrift



The film’s tale is truly compelling, and it does deliver satisfying stretches while staying cautious of any narrative risks that might seem disrespectful.

Poster for Disobedience



Weisz, McAdams are Nivola are all wonderful, crafting resonant characters as Lelio slowly builds the drama of a conflicting, scandalous triangle.

Poster for Book Club

Book Club


Book Club can’t dig any more than surface deep, and even with all this talent, it never shows the confidence in character that elevates Meyers’s best.

Poster for Oh Lucy!

Oh Lucy!


Sneaky in the ways it touches you. Light and breezy on the outside, it’s a film with a joyful heart that can’t be denied.
