Poster for Happy Death Day 2U

Happy Death Day 2U

7

Happy Death Day 2U adds a genre twist to the series' formula, delivering a sequel that's funnier, sillier, and more entertaining than the first movie.

Poster for The Prodigy

The Prodigy

5

The Prodigy is an often chilling and disturbing - if not particularly meaningful or impactful - horror movie weighed down its by derivative plot.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot

6

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot spins a wobbly and idiosyncratic American myth held together by Elliott's quietly moving performance.

High Flying Bird

7

High Flying Bird doesn't quite manage to change the game but, under Soderbergh and McCraney's guidance, it certainly makes an entertaining go at it.

Poster for Dragon Ball Super: Broly

Dragon Ball Super: Broly

6

Dragon Ball Super: Broly's dense mythology isn't necessarily accessible to newcomers, but it delivers dazzling Saiyan action worthy of the big screen.

Poster for Velvet Buzzsaw

Velvet Buzzsaw

5

While it has a game cast and offers some fun twists on typical horror-thriller scenarios, Velvet Buzzsaw makes for a relatively hollow satire.

Poster for Piercing

Piercing

5

A stylish exercise in retro horror-thriller filmmaking, but its stabs (no pun intended) at something deeper are mostly ineffective.

Poster for Serenity

Serenity

4

Though its big ideas don't work, Serenity's narrative miscalculations result in some pretty entertaining - if completely unintentional - comedy.

Poster for Glass

Glass

5

Glass concludes Shyamalan's superhero movie trilogy in a manner that manages to be absorbing, frustrating, and bewildering at the same time.

Poster for Replicas

Replicas

4

It has some promising elements, but on the whole Replicas is a campy sci-fi movie that's more likely to elicit unintended laughs than anything else.

Poster for Escape Room

Escape Room

5

An entertainingly cheesy and surprisingly innovative B-movie, but suffers when it turns its attention to setting up future sequels.

Poster for Holmes & Watson

Holmes & Watson

3

A lazy comedy that wastes a fun premise and talented cast on tired jokes, tasteless gags, and sometimes bafflingly outdated humor.

Poster for Destroyer

Destroyer

7

Powered by Kidman's fierce performance and Kusama's deliberate filmmaking, Destroyer makes for an effectively pulpy work of high-art storytelling.

Poster for Bird Box

Bird Box

6

A respectably moody and intelligent psychological thriller, if also a relatively muddled supernatural horror allegory.

Poster for Welcome to Marwen

Welcome to Marwen

4

An ambitious, but miscalculated and otherwise misguided attempt to blend effects-driven filmmaking with grounded storytelling.

Poster for Vice

Vice

5

Though it has the makings of a biting satire/biopic, Vice ends up feeling more like the rough draft of a better movie than a fully-realized vision.

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.
