|100 98%||Bao (2018) - Jun 19, 2018
"Bao and Paddington 2 marks 2018 as the year my tear ducts died."
|75 63%||Incredibles 2 (2018) - Jun 15, 2018
"All the parenting stuff with Mr. Incredible is perfect. Everything involving Jack-Jack is golden. Otherwise, this is running several leagues behind the first film (which is pretty much inevitable). A lot of the action feels kind of samey (other than the opening sequence and a dazzling train chase) and the conspiracy plot is pretty rote, leaving the actual superhero side of this movie a touch flat. Will still be the year’s best superhero film. "
|75 63%||Ocean's 8 (2018) - Jun 09, 2018
"Not as slick and seamless as a heist movie should be (and the last act is a little dodgy), but the cast absolutely kills it and makes this so much fun that it’s easy to overlook what a mess the whole thing is. Easily better than last month’s spin-off/reboot/heist film."
|65 42%||Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) - May 25, 2018
"A peculiar mixed bag. Really delightful in some ways (Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s L3-37, the outstanding John Powell score, and a really great half-hour stretch that starts around an hour in) and positively eye-rolling in others (too many answers to unasked questions, predictable heist cliches in the third act, and one groan-worthy cameo near the end). Mostly, a reasonably fun sci-fi that I never want to rewatch in its entirety."
|79 76%||The Triplets of Belleville (2003) - May 14, 2018|
|44 20%||Avengers: Infinity War (2018) - May 05, 2018
"People Almost Being Killed And Then Not: The Movie. Also, not enough Letitia Wright. "
|90 92%||Isle of Dogs (2018) - Apr 15, 2018
"Absurdly delightful, delivering on everything you’d expect (and some things you wouldn’t!). Visually stunning, genuinely hilarious, and delicately emotional. Far beyond any of 2017’s animated films. Also, utterly brilliant Desplat score."
|77 70%||A Quiet Place (2018) - Apr 06, 2018
"Deserves to be seen in a big theater and with a big audience. Every gasp, groan, and “oh no” contributes to the experience, giving the film life beyond the screen. And hats off for keeping the whole thing under 90 minutes."
|59 33%||The Lovely Bones (2009) - Apr 04, 2018|
