Widows: Steve McQueen’s follow up to 12 Years a Slave features a thrilling heist and a wildly overqualified cast. (Chase’s Review: 3/4)

Creed II: While lacking the lightning-in-a-bottle artistry of the first film, this is still a franchise worth rooting for. (David’s Review: 3/4)

The Favourite: A wickedly delicious cake of a film, boasting three stellar female performances. (Chase’s Review: 4/4)

Roma: Alfonso Cuaron is at the height of his powers in this Best Picture contender. (Tyler’s Review: 4/4)

Burning: The Korean Oscar contender is a visually striking mystery, and a great vehicle for Steven Yeun. (Chase’s Review: 4/4)

If Beale Street Could Talk: Barry Jenkins’ sumptuous romance proves that he is an artist to be reckoned with. (Chase’s Review: 3.5/4)
