2/5 63% Greed (2019) As Gordon Gekko might've been heard to whisper after a screening... Greed is not good. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 98% Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) It is clearly intended as awards bait for its star, but is also perfectly satisfying as a slow-burn crowd-pleaser - CineVue EDIT

2/5 81% Mid90s (2018) It is almost the definition of a minor film: low on plot, low on urgency, held together by little more than a sense of feeling and its A-list director. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 73% Patema Inverted (2014) Patema Inverted has children in its lead roles but, putting that aside, it's a relatively standard science fiction movie. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 83% You & Me Forever (2012) It's a fairly full-on look at the teenage desire for freedom, and is at its very best when it's challenging preconceptions headlong, on an intensely intimate level. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 63% Mary Queen of Scots (2018) It's more disappointing than bad. A great cast and an interesting period of history wasted on a sombre muddle that wants to have both the gravity of Shakespeare and a fresh, dynamic perspective. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 37% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) There is something quite charming about the construction of Rowling's jokes, her touch for relationships, that feels organic and unexpected. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 92% Drive (2011) Drive's rambling, at times confused narrative is electrified every so often by the kind of intense performance that even the Scorsese-directed Robert De Niro would be proud, courtesy of Gosling. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 98% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) A feel-good sensation, because its subject was a feel-good sensation. There are few documentaries that feel like wholesome family films but this is one. Overly reverential perhaps, but... an uncynical tonic for a very cynical age. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 81% Super 8 (2011) The trouble is that the answer awaiting at the end of Super 8 simply isn't very satisfying. But don't let that put you off, because the journey to get to this disappointment is a rewarding one. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 69% Ocean's 8 (2018) A return, as best it can, to the low-stakes whimsy of the first movie. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 54% Book Club (2018) Book Club is the best possible film that could have been made. It is utterly edgeless, without a real villain or character flaw in sight, but it is desperately sweet and, at times, much more naturalistic than most of its genre. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 67% On Chesil Beach (2018) Put simply, the adaptation doesn't work and the movie is instantly forgettable. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 86% Tully (2018) Theron is predictably terrific, throwing herself into the central role with a commitment that has become her trademark. She reads the tragic darkness of Cody's script with a naturalism that smooths out its occasional, rather arch, edges. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 16% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Its antecedents are less from the Wes Craven school of putting sexy young folk in tremendous danger, and more from the Ryan Murphy kindergarten of appealing to mainstream audiences who don't actually want to be frightened. - CineVue EDIT
