T-Meter Title | Year Review
10/10 100% Paddington 2 (2018) The beautiful composition and set design are fascinating to unpack and you will come to appreciate just how hard it actually can be to create a family film that is as fun for grown ups as it is for kids. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

7/10 97% Black Panther (2018) It does nothing truly distinct from every other Marvel Studios offering, I will be first in line. If they think they can sucker me into paying for outdated special effects and a movie I have seen many times over, they have another thing coming. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

6/10 90% A Star Is Born (2018) Nothing about A STAR IS BORN feels earned. The movie plods along to the inevitable conclusion and features unexplained time jumps that we are just supposed to accept. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

5/10 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is an affront to the music of Queen in that it lacks any of the depth the band put into every song they created. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

7/10 46% Skyscraper (2018) In an age when going to the movies seems to be a dick-measuring contest where each studio tries to outdo one another by raising the bar, it is nice to see Dwayne Johnson continuing to just have fun and therefore letting us as the audience have fun, too. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

8/10 53% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) It feels like Vaughn saying screw you to every studio note he got on the first movie and going balls out to do everything you would never expect. For that, KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE ended up being the best sequel of 2017. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

8/10 46% Constantine (2005) The complicated narrative and countless supporting characters from the comic are boiled down into the key elements that make CONSTANTINE an excellent standalone story and a perfect introduction to what should have been a long-running series. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

7/10 51% Rampage (2018) The fact that the trailer included veiled references to the sheer ridiculousness of the premise of RAMPAGE should have shown you this movie knew exactly what it was trying it be and it absolutely delivers. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

7/10 19% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) Despite a headline-grabbing marketing push, this movie deserves more recognition for the talented cast, well-executed direction, and clever connection to it's predecessors. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

5/10 72% Ready Player One (2018) READY PLAYER ONE is the prime example of just how hollow big budget filmmaking has become and ranks as one of the worst movies Spielberg has ever made, even though it represents an amalgamation of what has made his movies so iconic. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

8/10 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) There is so much to love in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY. From great character design to even more brilliantly executed practical effects, the pros far outweigh the cons with this production. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT

10/10 96% Don't Look Now (1973) Like ROSEMARY'S BABY and THE WICKER MAN, it is the build-up of anticipation and the feeling that something bad is going to happen that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I am willing to bet the final scene will get your skin crawling. - JoBlo's Movie Emporium EDIT
