Crazy Rich Asians

Bursting with attitude and heart, Hollywood's first Asian-centric rom-com in years makes up for lost time in a big way.

The Wife

Glenn Close is typically brilliant as the titular wife in a tale of a marriage cracking under the pressures of fame, neediness and revenge.

Movies, Drama

BlacKkKlansman

Spike Lee’s Klan-infiltration period piece is a high-energy filleting of today's racially torn America.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post

Caught having sex with the prom queen, a teen is sent to "pray away the gay" at a Christian conversion therapy camp, in what's actually a timely, funny comedy.

Eighth Grade

Growing up is hard to do for a social-media-obsessed teen, but Bo Burnham's gentle, keenly observed indie is on her side.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? stops short of hagiography, occasionally disclosing Rogers’ foibles and contradictions.

The Meg

Despite all the blood in the water, this supersized fish tale is nowhere near as fun or frenzied as you'll want it to be.

Christopher Robin

Easy-to-please kids will grin and bear a new Winnie the Pooh adventure, but the magic is somewhat dissipated.

Slender Man

This unscary horror film is as thin and vaporous as its internet-based stalker.

The Spy Who Dumped Me

Kate McKinnon steals another movie, this time as a BFF in an espionage comedy that should have let her cut her loose more often.

Movies, Action and adventure

The Equalizer 2

This surprise Denz-sploitation sequel is neatly effective in places but will leave you with little appetite for thirds.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Monstruos de Vacaciones
Movies, Animation

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

If it ever had any, this series has really lost its bite (sorry). Fresh blood is needed for a franchise that’s running short on laughs and story. The most likable thing about this series remains its madcap Tex Avery-ish animation.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Paul Rudd and Michael Peña spark but the fun levels get shrunk in a so-so second Ant-stallment.

Mile 22

Regardless of the mileage, you won’t want to join Mark Wahlberg on this obnoxious, hyperviolent trip.

A boy and wolf bond in this raw-boned survival movie told on an epic visual scale.
