Poster for The Spy Who Dumped Me

The Spy Who Dumped Me


An enjoyable female buddy romp that delivers sharp action and solid laughs - despite its shortcomings as a spy movie parody.

Poster for BlacKkKlansman



A well-crafted dramatization of real events and one of Spike Lee's more effective cinematic sermons on racism in recent memory.

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout


Not only (easily) the best pure action movie of Summer 2018, it's also the perfect culmination of the Mission: Impossible films thus far.

Poster for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again


Offers a jubilant return to the unapologetically silly world of the original ABBA stage musical-turned movie.

Poster for Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade


Masterfully captures the emotional horror of being a Generation Z middle-schooler, yet tells a universally relatable coming of age story.

Poster for Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace


Fueled by quietly moving performances and personal storytelling, Leave No Trace makes for a tender portrait of a broken father and his daughter.

Poster for The First Purge

The First Purge


As schlocky and ham-fisted as the Purge films before it, yet its political subtext justifies the franchise's continued existence.

Poster for Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Sicario: Day of the Soldado


A competent thriller but, without the original Sicario's artistic flourishes and substance, it's somewhat forgettable.

Poster for Tag



It might not have much more substance than the titular game, but Tag offers enjoyable and breezy summer action/comedy entertainment.

15 june

Poster for Hereditary



Has more spooky ideas than it knows what to do with, but enough of what it throws at the wall sticks to make for one twisted horror movie.

Poster for Hotel Artemis

Hotel Artemis


Makes for an intriguing exercise in pulpy sci-fi noir, even though the film's story leaves something to be desired.

8 jun

Poster for Adrift



A solid dramatization of real world events, Adrift is nevertheless more compelling as a grisly survival drama than a love story.

Poster for Cold November

Cold November


Forgoes convention in order to explore a young woman's experience growing up in a way that packs a subtle, yet lasting punch.

21 may

Poster for Cargo



A slow burn zombpocalypse drama that hits some familiar beats, yet there's a rich humanism at its core that makes the journey meaningful.

Poster for Life of the Party

Life of the Party


McCarthy and Falcone stay firmly within their comfort zone on Life of the Party, but their take on the college comedy sub-genre is good natured fun.

Poster for You Were Never Really Here

You Were Never Really Here


As less success breaking the mold for its genre, but explores the often ignored corners in thoughtful and intriguing ways.

Poster for Rampage



Doesn’t blend action, comedy, and heart as well as The Rock’s best tentpoles, but there’s good dunderheaded fun to be had here.

Poster for A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place


Lives up to the ambitious challenge that it sets for itself, taking audiences on a compelling and suspenseful journey along the way.

Poster for Ready Player One

Ready Player One


An impressive work of technical showmanship, Ready Player One nevertheless falls short of recapturing that old-school Spielberg blockbuster magic.

29 march

Poster for Unsane



Makes for an effectively creepy and visually experimental B movie psycho-thriller.

23 march

Poster for Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider


Though entertaining in the moment and briskly paced, Tomb Raider never overcomes feeling like a video game that you watch instead of play.

16 march

Poster for The Light of the Moon

The Light of the Moon


Delves into the messy realities of the emotional and physical fallout of rape, giving rise to a moving yet sensitive drama.

Poster for Mute



Despite some promising elements, Mute struggles to explore philosophical questions within a sci-fi setting in a way that feels innovative and fresh.



Poster for Red Sparrow

Red Sparrow


Anchored by Jennifer Lawrence’s performance, Red Sparrow is a slow-burn spy/seductress thriller that’s shiny on the surface, yet lacking in depth.
