In "Fahrenheit 11-9," Moore can't spray everything

Too many things burning.

'The Nun' delivers on the monster thrills, even if they're cheap ones

Starring creatures of habit.

'The Happytime Murders' is gleeful, glossy trash

Puppets gone bad.

'Crazy Rich Asians' feels crazy familiar

Representation and the rom-com.

'Blackkklansman' delves deep, even as it entertains

It's Kkkomedy.


In 'Leave No Trace,' exile's not for everyone.

Not exactly make-believe

Biopic shows us Fred Rogers was an open book.

Only villains work alone in 'Incredibles 2'

It takes a village.

'Ocean's 8' runs the jewels

And the future of sequels is female.

The world is not you

'Kaala' a revolution unto itself.

'Book Club' aims for wit, wilts instead

It's fifty shades of saccharine.

Origin story

'Solo' doesn't quite thread the needle.

'Deadpool 2' is rapid-fire smart/stupid

And super violent.

See 'A Quiet Place' in the theater while you can

Death by decibel.

A Marvel 'Infinity'

The umpteenth installment of the Avengers.

'Isle of Dogs' unmistakably Wes Anderson

The actors deliver their lines drolly, portioning out emotions in pinches rather than with scoops. The stories flirt with magical realism.

It's a kinder, gentler God who's not dead this third time

In "God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness."

'Pacific Rim: Uprising' is looser, sillier

Bring in the kaiju.

An Oscars postmortem

It was the year of the merman.

'Annihilation' is a trippy mindwalk

From director Alex Garland.
