Poster for The Angry Birds Movie 2

The Angry Birds Movie 2

6

Angry Birds Movie 2 has no delusions about it own slightness and makes up the difference with gleefully silly, yet unexpectedly clever cartoon mayhem.

Poster for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

7

Thanks to del Toro and Øvredal's combined efforts, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark does justice by the delightfully sinister books that inspired it.

Poster for Brian Banks

Brian Banks

5

Good intentions and Hodge's eloquent, stirring performance help to compensate for Brian Banks' shortcomings as a thinly-sketched inspirational biopic.

Poster for The Art of Racing in the Rain

The Art of Racing in the Rain

5

The Art of Racing in the Rain's main conceit wields mixed returns, resulting in a family dramedy that's whimsical and manipulative in equal measure.

Poster for The Peanut Butter Falcon

The Peanut Butter Falcon

7

Fueled by LaBeouf and Gottsagen's screen chemistry, The Peanut Butter Falcon makes for a charmingly funny and often touching adventure.

Poster for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

5

Hobbs & Shaw is partially successful in evolving the Fast & Furious property, yet mostly comes off feeling like a branding exercise for The Rock.

Poster for The Farewell

The Farewell

9

Thanks to Wang's deeply personal direction and Awkwafina's subtly profound performance, The Farewell offers a touching and truly authentic experience.

Poster for The Art of Self-Defense

The Art of Self-Defense

7

The Art of Self-Defense is a witty and idiosyncratic takedown of machoism that doesn't shy away from its uncomfortably terrifying aspects.

Poster for Crawl

Crawl

7

Thanks to Aja's confident direction and Kaya Scodelario's warrior performance, Crawl makes for a terse and otherwise exhilarating viewing experience.

Poster for Point Blank

Point Blank

4

Point Blank throws a lot of ideas at the wall without ever committing to any one of them, resulting in a thriller that's more confusing than exciting.

Poster for Stuber

Stuber

5

Stuber is an uneven buddy comedy that can't seem to decide if it's from the 80s or modern day, but occasionally gets in some decent jokes.

Poster for Yesterday

Yesterday

5

Yesterday is a fluffy and ultimately half-baked 'What if?' fantasy that partially gets by on its zestful storytelling and endearing performances.

Poster for Annabelle Comes Home

Annabelle Comes Home

6

Annabelle Comes Home offers enough thrills, jolts, and even heartfelt storytelling to compensate for the lack of depth to its horror elements.

Poster for Midsommar

Midsommar

6

Midsommar is a mixed bag that blends unsettling horror with bizarre comedy, resulting in a film that's equal parts fascinating and frustrating.

Poster for Child's Play

Child's Play

6

Despite its mixed success as a satire of the Digital Age, Child's Play is an otherwise entertainingly bloodthirsty re-imagining of the slasher brand.

Poster for Shaft

Shaft

4

Shaft is a bland requel that sacrifices the qualities that make this franchise relevant, in order to crack tired jokes about millennials instead.

Poster for Late Night

Late Night

6

Late Night works as a gently funny (if somewhat toothless) dramedy, thanks to a combination of authentic performances and Kaling's sincere writing.

Poster for The Secret Life of Pets 2

The Secret Life of Pets 2

5

Though The Secret Life of Pets 2 features plenty of cutesy animal shenanigans, this only does so much to compensate for its flimsy and episodic story.

Poster for Ma

Ma

5

Ma is elevated by Octavia Spencer's terrifically creepy performance, even as it struggles to realize the full potential of its horror movie premise.

Poster for Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

6

King of the Monsters offers the campy pleasures of an old-school Godzilla sequel, despite going overboard with its relentless kaiju battles.

Poster for Brightburn

Brightburn

5

Brightburn is a creepy, bloody genre mashup that fails to fully explore the fascinating questions it raises about the dark side of being a superhero.

Poster for Aladdin

Aladdin

7

Aladdin is a jubilant and energetic Disney retelling that mostly succeeds in updating the animated version, even if it never feels quite as magical.

Poster for The Dead Don't Die

The Dead Don't Die

5

The Dead Don't Die's premise simply isn't developed enough to sustain the entire film, even with a great cast and Jarmusch's dark wit at its disposal.

Poster for Photograph

Photograph

6

Photograph finds joy in the spaces between its story mechanics, which makes it easier to appreciate the film's occasionally patience-trying methods.
