Poster for Glass

Glass

6

Would Glass have worked better if we hadn’t been standing around staring all this time? Probably. but Shyamalan got us here with skill, and he gets us out with a film that’s easy to respect, but hard to cheer for.

Everything is painted with the broadest brush available.

Poster for On the Basis of Sex

On the Basis of Sex

6

Rests as a film always competent and sincere, but seldom revealing.

Poster for Shoplifters

Shoplifters

7

The cast is universally charming, and when Koreeda is content to ride the casually observational pace he introduces, Shoplifters works humanistic wonders with its sweet vignettes of love and mercy.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

8

The story bursts to vibrant life. The dazzling animation gives a big soul kiss to comic books and pushes nearly every frame to its action-following limit.

Poster for Tyrel

Tyrel

7

Amid heavy dialog that’s fast and free-flowing with an improvisational feel, the crowded mountain home becomes a nerve-wracking metaphor for the state of race relations.

Poster for Creed II

Creed II

6

But beyond all the button pushing, sentiment and nostalgia are characters, and this all falls like a tomato can in the fist round if we don’t have reason to care about them. We still do.

Poster for The Front Runner

The Front Runner

7

The dialogue is fast and smart, often evoking a more easily digestible Aaron Sorkin. Salient points are made and then rebutted through the precise timing and intricate blocking of an outstanding ensemble...

Poster for Instant Family

Instant Family

6

Always more fuzzy than consistently funny, Instant Family offers plenty of good feels backed up with some lived-in comfortability.

Poster for Boy Erased

Boy Erased

8

It is precisely this intimacy that fuels the film’s resonance, as one family’s story becomes a vessel for greater understanding. That’s no small achievement, and Boy Erased is no small triumph.

Poster for The Girl in the Spider's Web

The Girl in the Spider's Web

6

Always watchable, and engaging enough to keep you invested. But Lisbeth became memorable by being uniquely compelling, not merely satisfactory.

Poster for The Grinch

The Grinch

4

The Grinch is nearly as empty as Cindy Lou’s living room on Christmas morn.

Poster for Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody

6

Factual liberties are taken, timelines are sometimes carelessly misrepresented, and there’s a totally needless gag from Mike Myers, but whenever Bohemian Rhapsody is most unsteady, Queen’s music is there for a bailout.

Poster for Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy

7

Through first-hand insight and two towering performances, it finds a thread of hope in the ashes of a family’s nightmare.

2018

Poster for Suspiria

Suspiria

8

It cements a vision of Suspiria that’s as ambitious and it is uncompromising, one that explores different definitions of horror while ultimately delivering more outright shocks and shivers than Argento ever attempted.

Poster for Mid90s

Mid90s

8

An often funny, sometimes startling and endlessly human film, Mid90s is a blast from the past that points to a bright filmmaking future for Jonah Hill.

Poster for Free Solo

Free Solo

8

But in contrasting glorious human achievement with acceptable sacrifice, Free Solo becomes nearly unforgettable.

Poster for The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give

7

In trusting that YA audience with some bitter pills, The Hate U Give becomes a required dose for the rest of us.

2018

Poster for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

7

Has style, a winning cast, and winking nods to horror classics such as IT and Frankenstein.

Poster for Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale

7

Can’t completely deliver on its promise, it offers a gorgeous blast of color, sound and plot twists that are pretty fun to watch unravel.

Poster for All About Nina

All About Nina

7

The few moments where the film’s uncertainty breeds heavy-handedness can’t diminish her exciting potential as a writer and director.

Poster for The Old Man & the Gun

The Old Man & the Gun

7

The story is light and whimsical, but thanks to the veteran actors and the slyly understated direction, it’s got a frisky heart that won’t quit.

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born

9

This film has talent everywhere, but it also has stirring things to say about love and sacrifice, about art and commerce, ambition and fame.

2018

Poster for Smallfoot

Smallfoot

6

Settles into a pleasantly entertaining mix of messages, music, and Looney Tunes-worthy pratfalls.
