41% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Since King of the Monsters only exists to get audiences to see Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020, the attempt to be something more than just a loud, dumb bridge to the next episode is appreciated. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

57% Pet Sematary (2019) Jud was right: Sometimes dead is better. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

37% Glass (2019) I'm fine with slow and talky. What sucks is how this talent is completely wasted on this material. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

92% Bumblebee (2018) Nothing about it ever threatens to edge into "great" territory, but it's winsome, earnest and good-hearted, and that's more than enough to make it easily the best movie in the series. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

32% The Predator (2018) [It] doesn't sample an outdated clichéd aesthetic; it is that outdated clichéd aesthetic. This is a $100 million Golan-Globus movie-an incoherent cartoon full of slop and jank drowning out the brief sparks of charm thrown by actors who deserve better. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Incredibles 2 isn't as good or affecting as the first, but it is prettier, louder, faster, and funnier-and if you have to make a trade, that's not a bad one. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) While everyone who isn't named "Han" is short shrifted, Ehrenreich gets a really good grip on the character from the get-go, and watching him fumble and flail through his adventures is immensely enjoyable. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

66% Alien: Covenant (2017) The result is a film that's much less ambitious than Prometheus, but also significantly less pretentious and stupid. Covenant aims lower but hits more frequently. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) "Annoying" is the perfect term for his portrayal of Fantastic Beasts' hero, Newt Scamander, a shrugging, slumping sack of stammers and tics. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

47% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Apocalypse feels like it comes from the alternate timeline where Singe. . .reached into an uneven bag of overheated story bits and fished out a few great X-Men moments. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT
