2.5/4 80% Overlord (2018) A simple mechanism to deliver squib packs and swear words.‐

3.5/4 71% Welcome to Mercy (2018) A rare horror movie whose creators seriously represent both sides of a dilemma, and is therefore more mature than it seems at first glance.‐

2/4 96% Border (Gräns) (2018) Even the most open-minded viewers may have difficulty relating to the two lead protagonists in Border, a cynical Swedish romantic-fantasy.‐

79% 22 July (2018) There's nothing else in 22 July that you can't find in a good book or newspaper article about Hanssen and his fellow survivors.‐ Miami New Times

73% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) This Irwin-Allen-sized B-movie mostly works thanks to Goddard's knack for nesting-doll-style narrative compartmentalization and his talent for bringing out the best in his uniformly strong ensemble cast...‐ NPR

1/4 43% MFKZ (2018) MFKZ is the kind of barely-there fantasy that disappears from your memory even while you're watching it.‐

1.5/4 11% I Still See You (2018) The main reason 'I Still See You' doesn't come together is that Speer and Fuchs are so focused on complicating their already over-convoluted plot.‐

79% 22 July (2018) Reduces the terrorist attacks that rocked Norway in 2011 to a crass movie parable: Here's the everyman who overcomes considerable pain and helps put a deadly extremist in jail.‐ Denver Westword

1.5/4 82% Await Further Instructions (2018) An important subject doesn't necessarily make for a thrilling satire/social critique and Kevorkian and Williams simply aren't outlandish enough to land their half-baked ideas about television's dominating influence.‐

3.5/4 91% Heavy Trip (Hevi reissu) (2018) A cult hit waiting in the wings. Come for the brutal music, stay for the charming DIY optimism.‐

2.5/4 66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) Black, more than anyone else, should have been the one to wind up The House with a Clock in Its Walls. Too bad he doesn't give as much as he takes.‐

2/4 67% The Public Image is Rotten (2018) Diehard fans may enjoy The Public Image is Rotten, but there's not a lot here that they-or even adventurous newbies-can't get more of elsewhere.‐

B+ 33% The Predator (2018) Thirty-one years after the original eviscerated its way through a Central American jungle, fans finally have a worthy successor with The Predator.‐ The Playlist

2.5/4 No Score Yet Big Brother (Taai si hing) (2018) Big Brother may not stand up to much scrutiny, but it gets the job done.‐

2/4 78% Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres!) (2018) While I often enjoy loud, meaningless displays of stylistic excess, this one quickly wore me down.‐

1.5/4 41% Arizona (2018) Arizona might have worked better as a smart-ass social commentary if its tsk-tsking of consumerist myopia wasn't so consistently on the nose and its plot didn't swiftly devolve into slasher movie cliches.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
1.5/4 68% Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) Sadly more boring than offensive despite its superficially controversial high-concept premise.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2018
1.5/4 77% BuyBust (2018) So often bogged down by pseudo-naturalistic long takes and generic cop/robber power dynamics that it makes one wonder what the point of watching such a film is.‐

100% The Island (2018) There are no good or bad people in The Island, just a group of hapless schmucks who become more sympathetic as they get more desperate.‐ Village Voice

64% Dolemite (1975) Moore's swagger...He's not much of an actor, but he is charming as heck, and comfortable in his character's oily skin.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2018
91% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) Most of the gags in this pandering spoof are about their own schematic nature - they're jokes about how you're smarter than the jokes.‐ Village Voice

13% 14 Cameras (2018) Unfortunately, Archambault's churlishly over-the-top performance makes it impossible to take 14 Cameras seriously, no matter how you interpret Gerald's actions.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
56% Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly Kings (Di Renjie zhi Sidatianwang) (2018) You will never have to wait long before ninjas strike, a gigantic eyeball demon attacks, or a monster's blood rains from the sky and transforms into flower petals in midair.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
1/4 58% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) Each new plot development is so slapdash and uninspired that it's impossible to suspend one's disbelief.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
39% Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti (2018) Cassel's Gauguin [is] both menacing and pitiable enough to make Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti riveting on a moment-to-moment basis.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2018
79% The Night Eats the World (La nuit a dévoré le monde) (2018) If you don't get too hung up on the film's many contrivances - particularly its uninspired finale and any scene where Lie speaks - you might find The Night Eats the World to be sufficiently moody.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2018
1.5/4 22% Bleeding Steel (2018) The plot-light nature of Bleeding Steel wouldn't be so vexing if the film's tone and story didn't seemingly shift at random.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2018
92% A Skin So Soft (Ta peau si lisse) (2018) Unfortunately, viewers unacquainted with weight lifting probably won't learn much about Côté's musclemen or their sport just by watching them fuss over their appearances ...‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
3/4 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Ant-Man and the Wasp may not be the best anything, but, like its perpetually challenged hero, it is plenty good enough.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2018
1.5/4 0% Black Water (2018) A mediocre submarine thriller that only really comes to life when co-star Dolph Lundgren gets to one-up the Muscles from Brussels.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
2/4 65% Ideal Home (2018) Ideal Home may not be a total dud, but it is a huge waste of both Rudd and Coogan's talent.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
44% Incident In a Ghost Land (Ghostland) (2018) An effectively punishing critique of the relentless misogyny that has become a staple of every stupid Texas Chain Saw Massacre knockoff that pits sexually active women against emotionally disturbed serial killers.‐ Village Voice

71% Damsel (2018) Pattinson and Wasikowska deserve better material than the Zellners' head-scratchingly lazy jokes.‐ Village Voice

0/4 13% China Salesman (2018) Hammy and painfully incompetent: yup, this is a film co-starring Steven Seagal.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2018
60% Straight Into a Storm (2018) Straight Into a Storm comes alive whenever McCauley and his bandmates reminisce about their old habit of getting wasted and playing guitar while rewatching La Bamba.‐ Village Voice
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2018
2/4 77% Believer (2018) Believer doesn't add up to much because Lee and Chung essentially tried to improve something that was already perfectly unsettling.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2018
3/4 86% Upgrade (2018) Upgrade, an irresistibly gory science-fiction melodrama, is B-movie schlock done right.‐

2.5/4 67% 102 Not Out (2018) This chintzy portion of screenwriter Saumya Joshi's consistently sentimental narrative is mostly bearable thanks to Kapoor's comic timing and Bachchan's seemingly boundless energy.‐
