63% It Chapter Two (2019) I'm sorry to report that these adult Losers never really come together, despite great turns by Hader and a scene-stealing James Ransone as Eddie. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

86% The Nightingale (2019) There's a lot to the film, and I respect anyone who needs to sit this one out. But if you go into The Nightingale, be a witness to history. Don't look away. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

99% The Farewell (2019) I didn't expect such visual delights from cinematographer Anna Franquesa Solano, who peppers the film with truly lovely natural light. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

94% Whisper of the Heart (Mimi wo sumaseba) (If You Listen Closely) (2006) The film also unforgettably repurposes John Denver's "Country Roads," and applies it to everyday Japanese life via a number of covers. If that sounds too good to be true, it's not. It totally works somehow. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

85% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) The premise is played, but there's still some fun to be had, and you can see it with your kids. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

61% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) I'd rather talk about what this film is: a fun, exhilarating realization of a sci-fi story that, even now, audiences may not be ready for. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

27% Mortal Engines (2018) Mortal Engines is the sort of movie that you watch when you get home from a rave at 3 a.m. and you're still too high or amped up to go to sleep. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

81% Mid90s (2018) I loved Mid90s for its moving portrayal of a patriarchal found family... But intentionally or not, Hill's vision puts us so close to the story that it makes it hard to see the cracks in his idealized vision of youth. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

24% The Happytime Murders (2018) Oh brother, here we go again with the puppets f---king. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Ant-Man and the Wasp follows through on that stuff and goes even further with scale-shifting action sequences. More importantly, this film uses Rudd exponentially better, giving him plenty of opportunities to be goofy and charming and Paul Rudd-y. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

72% The Misandrists (2018) I wonder if every viewer will understand that the film's unique tone is offered in the spirit of affection, rather than contempt, for radical feminism. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

91% Big Fish & Begonia (2018) If you can let these aesthetics marry in your mind, there's a chance you can fall under Big Fish & Begonia's spell. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) [Ava] DuVernay doesn't cut the weird, though, without adding wonder. Her update to the three Mrs. W's is particularly spectacular. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

43% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) For sure, Death Cure reaches further than its grasp in a vain attempt to close the story on a meaningful note, but who can really blame this gaggle of murder-teens for trying to pretend like all the murdering they did meant something? - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

63% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) It'd be enough to break your heart-if any of it felt real. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

83% Patti Cake$ (2017) As Patti Cake$ reminds us, reality is always stranger than what we can imagine. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT

97% In This Corner of the World (Kono sekai no katasumi ni) (2017) We know where In This Corner of the World is headed. But it's easy to forget. - The Stranger (Seattle, WA) EDIT
