Steve McQueen returns with new heist movie Widows, a timely and thrilling outing featuring a talented, and mainly female ensemble cast, led by the incredible Viola Davis.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald does overindulge on the 'franchise' moments and is rather plot heavy at times but it generally casts a decent spell. Characters are well grounded and the tie-in to the 'Potter-verse' is well crafted and shows that the truly gifted J.K. Rowling still has what it takes.
A very mediocre attempt at reigniting the Millenium franchise, The Girl in the Spider's Web is void of passion, meaning and suspense.

The Meg tries to be the big ridiculous shark movie that you want it to be, but falls short from a devastatingly slow beginning, and an underwhelming backstory.
This year's Karlovy Vary International Film Festival winner is a highly original and unconventional story of politics and convenient ignorance. Barbarians is a fascinating piece of modern cinema, executed with impeccable precision and rarely has a dull moment.
