Poster for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

8

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum trades storyline and plot points for continuous non-stop action and inventive gunplay. Keanu Reeves solidifies himself as an action superstar, while director Chad Stahelski comes up with even more ways to fist fight, car chase and shoot out in the most adrenaline-fueled sequel of all-time.

Long Shot

9

Long Shot is another on-point balance of comedy and sincere emotion from director Jonathan Levine. Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen are the cinematic pairing that we never thought we'd need, yet are sure glad that we got. Long Shot will make you laugh in ways that you didn't know were possible.

Avengers: Endgame

10

Avengers: Endgame is the greatest cinematic achievement of our lifetime. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo manage to stick a landing that's taken over ten years and 22 movies to make, providing a thrilling conclusion to the Infinity Saga that's full of surprises and all ranges of emotion.

The Curse of La Llorona

7

Michael Chaves is no James Wan, but he wields the camera with a purpose that captures the tension and scares to their fullest capabilities, despite the yawn-inducing script that wastes most of its potential on repeat jumps and very minor plot development.

Hellboy

7

Neil Marshall's Hellboy is shambled collection of excellent creature designs, awesome R-rated action sequences and trying performances attempting to capture the heart and soul of the character, blended together with humor that absolutely doesn't land and a script that could use a few more once-overs. Consider this one a mixed bag of bad ass.

Poster for The Beach Bum

The Beach Bum

8

Harmony Korine's The Beach Bum is a meandering exploration of genius, anchored down by an all-in performance by Matthew McConaughey. The Beach Bum might squander its running time with repetitious drunken endeavors, but it has a lot to say for a film that appears to be about so very little.

Captain Marvel

8

Captain Marvel may not be an Earth-shattering movie, but its doesn't need to be. It's a solid origins story that kicks all sorts of butt, thanks to Brie Larson's grace and vigor, combined with a memorable Samuel L. Jackson performance.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

7

Dean DeBlois' How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is a likable conclusion to his animated trilogy, which features a mixed bag of storytelling. The Hidden World isn't a bad movie, but far from a memorable one, especially when compared to the likes of the first film. Still, it occasionally tugs at the heartstrings and reminds us of the sweet characters created and enjoyed over the years.

Poster for Happy Death Day 2U

Happy Death Day 2U

9

An effective sequel, capitalizing on what worked so well in the first film, its characters and blend of humor and horror, to deliver a worthy successor that leans heavier on the sci-fi side.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

A lukewarm disappoint, failing to capture that same creative magic as the original film. This time around, the jokes aren't funny, the story is convoluted and everything is definitely not awesome.

Alita: Battle Angel

Features dazzling 3D and impressive world building that almost makes up for the weak franchise starting ending.

Poster for Glass

Glass

8

Ambitious and weird, providing unusual commentary on comic book movies in the form of a sequel that's landing almost two decades after the first film was released. Glass is well-acted, sloppily constructed, but mostly captivating in its ability to ground its characters in a world that just might exist.

May not be as focused or as well-rounded as Wonder Woman, but it's a load of fun and a technical achievement that DC should be very proud of.

Poster for The Mule

The Mule

9

A bleak tale of redemption, anchored down by another unfiltered Clint Eastwood performance that's drenched in moral ambiguity. The Mule is a heart-wrenching drama that foreshadows Eastwood's prolific career.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

9

Features crazy-inventive animation and a plethora of Spidey heart. The world is ready for Miles Morales and this film proves that there's plenty of stories left within the Spider-Verse that must be told.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

7

Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander is still quirky, fun and worthy of leading the franchise, but the supporting characters definitely lessen the film's effect, while Yates and Rowling attempt to intertwine too many sub-stories and references to the HP series.

Poster for Instant Family

Instant Family

8

An instant success. Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne deliver sincere and enjoyable performances, while director Sean Anders captures the subject matter with an even dose of well-blended comedy and drama. This is an all-around great family film.

Poster for Overlord

Overlord

A well-balanced blend of horror and sci-fi, with excellent sound design, solid gore effects and enough zombie Nazi slaying to satisfy most B-movie junkies.

The Girl in the Spider's Web

6

Easily the worst Dragon Tattoo installment yet, filled with uninspiring characters that follow a thin plot that feels like a rushed made-for-TV afterthought when compared to both Niels Arden Oplev and David Fincher's previous films.

Poster for Halloween

Halloween

7

A vicious slasher film that reinvigorates a franchise that most thought was dead and buried. Jamie Lee Curtis gives a convincing performance, while Nick Castle returns to haunt us all as The Shape.

A painful reflection of fame, a study of addiction and a display of what it means to be true to yourself. One of the year’s best without a doubt.

Falls flat in the story department, despite Jack Black's usual brand of comedy blending together well with Cate Blanchett's charms.
