Genre: Action/Adventure
Director: James Wan
Cast: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temeura Morrison

Devoid of complex plotting, comprehensive world-building, and narrative twists, "Aquaman" seems strangely out-of-step with where the genre is going.

Although this is indeed a romance where one of the participants is stricken with an aggressive form of cancer, it isn’t just another “cancer movie.”

Even the most hard-hearted viewer is likely to have an emotional reaction; this is as much a testimony to the way Cooper tells the tale as to the story itself.

Run Time: 1:57
U.S. Release Date: 2018-09-14
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity, Violence)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Paul Feig
Cast: Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, Henry Golding, Andrew Moodie, Linda Cardellini, Jean Smart

The movie becomes so obsessed with narrative switchbacks that it comes close to straying into self-parody territory.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller/Comedy
Director: Jonathan Watson
Cast: Rosemarie DeWitt, Danny McBride, Lolli Sorenson, Luke Wilson, Elizabeth Gillies

A tonal mess and its inconsistencies make it a frustrating viewing experience.

Plodding, repetitive, replete with technobabble nonsense and lifeless action, this is easily the worst-written of any of the 20 to-date MCU offerings.

Run Time: 1:37
U.S. Release Date: 2018-06-01
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Scenes of Peril, Disturbing Images, Brief Nudity)
Genre: Drama/Adventure
Director: Baltasar Kormakur
Cast: Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin

An honest, if somewhat neutered, account of what happens in situations like this, and worth seeing if you have an interest in (Wo)man vs. Nature battles.

A standard-order noir murder mystery with a confused last act, "Anon" is more notable for how it sees the future than what it sees going on there.

With an unwavering devotion to spectacle and action, the film throws down a gauntlet where this kind of mass team-up is concerned.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Release Date: 2018-04-06
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Disturbing Images)
Genre: Science Fiction/Horror
Director: John Krasinski
Cast: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, Cade Woodward

A superb exercise in understated terror that puts to shame “horror” films that rely on jump scares and cheap theatrics.
