My Favorite Films of 2018

This year, the movies pushed back.

Arts & Culture

Fall Movie Preview

Five films we're looking forward to this fall.

MaxSpace

Divergent

The Breakfast Club goes dystopian

MaxSpace

Bad Words

Jason Bateman's directorial debut is both funny and offensive. (But mostly offensive).

MaxSpace

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson delights (again) in this witty tale of a genteel action hero.

MaxSpace

Pompeii

It's like Gladiator. . . with volcanoes! It's Gladcanoes!

MaxSpace

Winter's Tale

The cinematic equivalent of a greeting card from a second-rate New Age bookstore.

MaxSpace

The Lego Movie

Surprise! It's really good!

MaxSpace

The Monuments Men

Film about a mission to recover art stolen by the Nazis fails to quicken pulse.

MaxSpace

That Awkward Moment

Too much bathroom humor in this ill-conceived bromantic comedy

MaxSpace

Labor Day

Not even the talented leads can save this ridiculous romance.

MaxSpace

Lone Survivor

A bloody battle in Afghanistan brought vividly (too vividly?) to life.

MaxSpace

Her

On falling in love (with an Operating System)

MaxSpace

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

For a film about taking risks and embracing adventure, it feels awfully safe.

MaxSpace

Blue is the Warmest Color

An emotional repertoire of adolescence

MaxSpace

Review: 12 Years a Slave

The best film about the tragedy of American slavery I’ve ever seen.

MaxSpace

Review: Django Unchained

He’s 49 years old, but in some ways, Quentin Tarantino is still that genius kid in the video store.
