Poster for Mortal Engines

Mortal Engines

5

Has some terrific world design and visuals, but its uninspired narrative and ungainly filmmaking make for a hollow viewing experience.

Poster for Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns

8

A delightfully whimsical musical sequel that pays homage to its predecessor, yet by and large thrives on its own merits.

Poster for The Quake

The Quake

6

The Quake doesn't break the mold for natural disaster thrillers but, like The Wave, its humanist approach to the genre is refreshing and engaging.

Poster for If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk

9

Much like his previous films as a director, Jenkins' Beale Street adaptation is a richly layered and beautifully atmospheric work of cinematic poetry.

Poster for The Favourite

The Favourite

8

Armed with Lanthimos' trademark weirdness and three great lead performances, The Favourite is a truly unique spin on the typical royal court drama.

Poster for On the Basis of Sex

On the Basis of Sex

6

More compelling as a history lesson than a film, but makes for a relevant dramatization of Ginsburg's experiences all the same.

Poster for Creed II

Creed II

7

Meaningful and poignant continuation of the Creed/Rocky films, even though it doesn't scale the same artistic heights as its precursor.

Poster for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

6

Certain segments are far more engaging than others, but overall The Ballad of Buster Scruggs makes for an intriguing piece of anthology storytelling.

Poster for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

5

Has its moments of wonder and delight, but gets bogged down in its efforts to build out the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

Poster for Roma

Roma

8

Yet another impressive technical accomplishment for CuarĂ³n, Roma explores the filmmaker's memories of childhood in a truly immersive and vivid manner.

Poster for Widows

Widows

9

Masterfully blends high-art craftsmanship with a sharply drawn pulpy narrative to deliver a crime flick that's equally smart and entertaining.

Poster for Boy Erased

Boy Erased

6

Well acted and thoughtfully directed, Boy Erased is a compassionate memoir that nevertheless struggles to leave much of an emotional impact.

Poster for Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

8

McCarthy and Grant make for a delicious pair of miscreants in Can You Ever Forgive Me?, a memoir brimming with sharp wit and social observations.

Poster for Ben Is Back

Ben Is Back

6

Buoyed by the affecting performances from Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges, Ben is Back makes for a compelling (though uneven) exploration of addiction.

Poster for Suspiria

Suspiria

7

An alluring blend of sociopolitical allegory and visceral supernatural horror that yields imperfect, yet all the same fascinating results.

Poster for Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody

5

Despite a strong performance by Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody plays out as an excessively sanitized version of Queen's story, rather than a labor of love.

Poster for Johnny English Strikes Again

Johnny English Strikes Again

4

Harmlessly silly on the whole, but may even leave fans of the previous Johnny English movies feeling underwhelmed.

Poster for Halloween

Halloween

7

Driven by a committed Curtis, Halloween is mostly effective in the way it takes the slasher franchise back to its roots, yet builds on its foundation.

Poster for Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy

6

Well-acted and handles a sensitive topic with the care it deserves, yet ends up being an 'important' film more than a well-made one.

Poster for Apostle

Apostle

6

Blends atmospheric storytelling with grisly brutality to mixed results, but makes for an effectively nasty (and bizarre) horror movie overall.

Poster for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

5

Lacks the charm and inventiveness of its predecessor, but still has a reasonable amount of spoopy entertainment value to offer.

Poster for 22 July

22 July

7

Despite some general storytelling issues, Greengrass succeeds in delivering another well-crafted and intelligent docudrama-thriller...

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born

8

Fueled by strong performances and Cooper's precise direction, A Star is Born is a moving (and tear-jerking) love story by way of showbiz melodrama.

5 october

Poster for The Old Man & the Gun

The Old Man & the Gun

7

A pleasantly breezy cops and (aging) robbers tale anchored by Redford's charismatic performance - be it his last one or not.
