- The Big Sick - "A highly recommended little treasure of a movie."
- Blade Runner 2049 - "From beginning to end, the art of moviemaking has been advanced. Every other movie set in the future, every movie that aims for beauty or meaning, has a new elevation to reach. A+"
- Dunkirk - "Chris Nolan dazzles with his complete mastery of film craft with this stunning chapter of World War II history. A"
- Hidden Figures - "A wonderful untold story of three ambitious black lady nerds who perservere through cultural and workplace racism and sexism to advance and contribute to America's space program of the early 60s. B-plus."
- John Wick 2 "truly f**king DELIVERED."
- The Last Jedi - "Episode 8 is fun and funny, and sheds some of the classical "space opera" tone for a looser, more contemporary feel. B-plus."
- The Lego Batman Movie "is funny, silly, with legit action sequences, amazing pop culture cameos, and it's about something too! A-minus"
- Logan - "Really impressive finale to Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. A-minus"
- Sing - "Very nice movie about a singing competition. Who knew Matthew McConaguhey could be so charming?"
- Wonder Woman - "I want more movies like this. Movies where women are in charge, where they're not thinking about men, where they are certain and unafraid. I was sad that we get so few of them."
