Glass is an overstuffed and ridiculous entry in Shyamalan's cinematic universe that tries to make grand statements about our obsessions with superheroes, but ultimately falls flat from a flawed and clunky script, redundant characters, and an all round lack of that gritty realism that the previous two films had.
Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse is a playful, hilarious and revolutionary superhero film that let's you try on that mask. It's exhilarating and absolutely gorgeous to look at.
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. A dull and almost lifeless action movie that is a tremendous waste of talent. As a standalone film it's bad, but as a follow-up to a David Fincher movie, it's terrible.
Alpha is a beautifully crafted survival movie that puts a focus on mood and visuals. It's spellbinding and easily the best blockbuster of the summer.
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.
