4/5 90% A Star Is Born (2018) It's been recited plenty of times before and, even if it hadn't, follows the predictable beats of so many true stories of waning celebrity. That's not a criticism; it's actually what gives the story emotional heft.‐ Student Edge

3/5 72% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) It's the kind of movie where multiple people need to be told they still have shards of glass sticking out of their head.‐ Student Edge

4/5 89% First Man (2018) It captures a decent and admirable moment in all of mankind's history with restraint, and, just when you want it, bombast.‐ Student Edge

3/5 30% Venom (2018) I feel a bit like Joey Tribbiani eating Rachel's meat trifle in Friends: It's not what it could have been, sure, but Tom Hardy? Good. Riz Ahmed? Good. Giant-tongued space monster Venom? Goood.‐ Student Edge

4/5 89% American Animals (2018) Don't get it twisted: American Animals isn't merely a thought experiment about who gets to claim ownership of the truth. It's also a cracking heist flick.‐ Student Edge

3/5 28% Night School (2018) This thing writes itself! Except, maybe not, because Night School apparently required six screenwriters, and it shows.‐ Student Edge

5/5 93% Mandy (2018) Sensitive and sense-shattering, Mandy isn't simply a masterpiece: it's two for the price of one.‐ Student Edge

3/5 79% Ladies in Black (2018) Rich performances and richer dresses make up for Ladies In Black's fraying script.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 33% The Predator (2018) The Predator is a goofy, gory, muddy mess that makes less and less visual and narrative sense as it races to its nonsense conclusion. That Sterling K. Brown and Olivia Munn though.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 93% Searching (2018) I also appreciated how it shows David benignly browsing the web and opening multiple tabs of news stories at once, without reading any. I mean, I was watching him, but in that moment, it was I who felt truly seen.‐ Student Edge

4/5 87% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) The Miseducation of Cameron Post explores insidious acts of cruelty with incredible compassion (and a spiky sense of humour).‐ Student Edge

4/5 71% The Merger (2018) I left The Merger in a reverie, charmed by this latest great Australian comedy about identity, which deserves to go straight to the pool room alongside The Castle and, more recently, Ali's Wedding.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 91% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) I guess you could say it's the same old song, but with a different meaning since it cast 'Ron'. ‐ Student Edge

3/5 30% Kin (2018) Kin sets up a star-stacked sequel with plenty of promise. If the franchise even gets that far.‐ Student Edge

1.5/5 22% The Happytime Murders (2018) This is the worst thing any of the actors have been affiliated with, and given the material that went into the puppet cast, I'd say it's the worst thing cushions have ever been affiliated with as well. ‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) As a rom-com it falls a little short, not offering all that much 'com'. But it's romantic as hell.‐ Student Edge

4/5 95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) BlacKkKlansman is both bitingly funny and stunningly effective as a call to arms.‐ Student Edge

3/5 49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) [Kate McKinnon] is described in the film as "a little much", but she offers a correction: "I'm a lot much." And without the charms of its stars, The Spy Who Dumped Me wouldn't be much of anything at all.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Fallout is the perfect Mission: Impossible sequel; so good it makes knees wobble and (broken) ankles heal.‐ Student Edge

3/5 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) By sequelising The Equalizer, Denzel has given himself a franchise wherein he can consistently murder, monologue and moralise. ‐ Student Edge

5/5 88% You Were Never Really Here (2018) It's sad and stunning and stressful and sometimes so darkly funny you actually wonder if you've dropped into another filmic world where such things can intermingle.‐ Student Edge

4/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) The funniest part of Ant-Man and the Wasp is the fact Marvel followed their despairing Avengers: Infinity War cliffhanger with a disposable side-adventure. Are they having a laugh? Yes, and loving it.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Day of the Soldado is a bummer, and that's even compared to its predecessor, which was hardly a quinceañera. [But] I mean that in a good way. Bumming viewers out is kind-of this series' thing.‐ Student Edge

4/5 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The dumbest Jurassic movie to date is also the funnest since the original Jurassic Park.‐ Student Edge

2/5 55% Tag (2018) If someone came to me very specifically seeking a movie with a 'tag' themed title that'll make them laugh... well, no, I'd still recommend 'It' first.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) As glad as I was to spend time with the Parrs in 2018, on the second go around, they are ultimately demoted to simply 'credible'.‐ Student Edge

4.5/5 86% Upgrade (2018) In Upgrade, a paralysed man gets rebooted as a killing machine thanks to a computer chip. It's absurd. It's also incredibly entertaining.‐ Student Edge

3/5 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) The picture is as fleet and forgettable as its characters would want to seem in the middle of a daylight robbery. But there is real pleasure to derive from the (incredibly) rare sight of eight female actors delighting in one another's company.‐ Student Edge

4/5 89% Hereditary (2018) Hereditary is deeply, deeply upsetting, in a way I did not anticipate and which the trailers do not prepare us for. ‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Like Rogue One before it, Solo: A Star Wars Story brings elevated expectations for future Star Wars spin-offs back down to Earth. Except when it comes to a vehicle for Lando. Now there's a new hope.‐ Student Edge

3/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Die-hard fans of Deadpool's fourth wall-breaking, superhero-subverting, ultraviolent antics will find much to enjoy in Deadpool 2. Everyone else: Deadpool is basically your Poochie.‐ Student Edge

4/5 81% Chappaquiddick (2018) Chappaquiddick is a powerful cautionary tale, and a reminder that people will forgive and forget anything if the surrounding news cycle is loud enough.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 86% Tully (2018) Charlize Theron takes the Fury Road offramp and heads to an even more apocalyptic setting in Tully: a nightmarish future dystopia for prospective parents.‐ Student Edge

4/5 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Infinity War is a dark and satisfying superhero flick, full of death, if you're into that sort of thing.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 80% Unsane (2018) Not since Michael Powell's Peeping Tom has the camera felt like an actual weapon, with us sitting on the incriminating side.‐ Student Edge

4/5 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) Isle of Dogs is a marvel and supreme technical accomplishment. But it comes with an asterisk.‐ Student Edge

3/5 53% Rampage (2018) Honestly, this thing should have been 45 minutes. ‐ Student Edge

4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) Besides having a double-barrelled surname that would suit any self-respecting jam band, the Krasinski-Blunts are indomitable together.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 72% Ready Player One (2018) With Ready Player One, Spielberg finally gets into self-spoofing, tackling his dominant era-the 1980s-with a sense of humour, while remaining plenty reverent to the pop culture universe he wrought.‐ Student Edge

3/5 41% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) [In] Into the Woods, Little Red makes a point of explaining how "nice is different than good". Is it a backhanded compliment to call A Wrinkle in Time just 'nice'?‐ Student Edge

4/5 83% Blockers (2018) Blockers is the sex comedy that was promised.‐ Student Edge
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2018
3/5 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Uprising is unburdened by del Toro's reputation. [It's now] free to be your standard, dumb, robot-on-monster flick, no grading curve necessary.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 39% Mary Magdalene (2018) Mary Magdalene tries to retell the Easter story, and lays an egg.‐ Student Edge

2.5/5 51% Tomb Raider (2018) There's a bright side: If I had to choose between Vikander's Tomb Raider and [Michael Fassbender's] Assassin's Creed, I'd go for her unremarkable Tomb Raider. I'd rather some shut-eye than a stress headache.‐ Student Edge

4/5 87% Annihilation (2018) Writer-director Alex Garland is certainly carving out a niche for himself, with movies in which people literally carve into themselves (or others) to check if they're still human.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 71% The Mercy (2017) Would you believe Marsh pulls off his miraculous feat, turning Crowhurst's highly-disturbing story into something worthwhile, and worth watching?‐ Student Edge

4/5 77% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) The film is playing with fire. Akin handles it with care, crafting his allegorical message into a compelling feature, anchored by a stellar leading performance.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) With its shady Russian subterfuge and systemic abuse of women in the workplace, Red Sparrow is a movie of the moment. However, it's also unstuck from time.‐ Student Edge

3.5/5 71% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) No one said the erotic French picture about a woman with a transference/twincest fetish would be emotionally healthy.‐ Student Edge

3/5 83% Game Night (2018) As a comedy about some low-key friends who love low-stakes games, Game Night is distracting enough. But as an unlikely action spoof? Yahtzee.‐ Student Edge
