6/10 38% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) If there was more character development, more genuine, thoughtful moments instead of big action sequences, if this all played out as organically as the original films, then there would be no problem.‐ The Young Folks

9/10 No Score Yet The Wrong Todd (2018) There's great laughs and touching moments, moving performances and downright wacky sci-fi. Ultimately, The Wrong Todd is a small but mighty film with a lot of heart.‐ The Young Folks

95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) There are moments that feel comical, some horrific, and some downright inspiring but the tonal shifts hardly matter as the end results come to a film that's perfect for this time.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 43% Hot Summer Nights (2018) Hot Summer Nights is more interested in style over substance, character tropes over character. Without that, the audience is just as lost as the characters on screen.‐ The Young Folks

7/10 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Once you get past the murky political reasoning the events are taking place, it becomes a much better and enjoyable film.‐ The Young Folks

7/10 93% Blindspotting (2018) Blindspotting succeeds in the smaller moments more so than with the bigger picture.‐ The Young Folks

8/10 89% You Were Never Really Here (2018) Even if the film meanders a bit in the beginning, the wait is worth the final product. ‐ The Young Folks

8/10 94% Wildlife (2018) A confident starting point for Dano's directorial career, it will leave you looking forward for more of his sure to be eclectic career behind the camera.‐ The Young Folks

8/10 62% I Think We're Alone Now (2018) If apocalypse stories are your thing, don't miss out on I Think We're Alone Now.‐ The Young Folks

8/10 100% Psych: The Movie (2017) But it's still the same old shenanigans, catchphrases, pop culture references, and lightning fast dialogue that once made Psych so much fun to watch. Psych: The Movie is a pleasant, comforting return.‐ The Young Folks

7/10 40% Justice League (2017) Justice League lightens up the DCEU, so at least this time, there was some fun to be had. ‐ The Young Folks

6/10 71% Happy Death Day (2017) There's better horror out there. There's better horror-comedy out there, too. What it all really comes down to, though, is if there's going to be another Groundhog Day film attempt, there has to be a better justification for it.‐ The Young Folks

7/10 54% The Belko Experiment (2017) Survival is human nature. But what happens after that? Belko leaves that up to its audience, but with little evidence to try and make a decent argument.‐ The Young Folks

6/10 17% The Space Between Us (2017) The Space Between Us certainly had potential. However, it fails to reach the same lengths its very characters already had.‐ The Young Folks

6.5/10 72% Sing (2016) Sing mostly just checks the boxes, and maybe does enough to be an okay film.‐ The Young Folks

7/10 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) ... the film only leaves you with a few great moments, but they're hard to cling to when surrounded by a story that lacks the proper substance.‐ The Young Folks

5/10 15% Sharknado: The 4th Awakens (2016) Things just weren't as fun this time around. ‐ The Young Folks
