A new wave of films hits theaters every week, but a lot of them aren’t worth seeing.

7. “Searching” — 71%

Critic score: 71%

Date released: August 24, 2018

What critics said: “Impressively, first-time filmmaker and former Google commercials creator Aneesh Chaganty has also made a real movie, the story of a family that morphs into a crime drama that gradually ratchets up the tension as all good thrillers must, one that’s well constructed and acted as well as novel in its storytelling techniques.” — The Hollywood Reporter

6. “Crazy Rich Asians” — 74%

Critic score: 74%

Date released: August 15, 2018

What critics said: “It’s a reinvented romantic comedy, sassy and fun, that doesn’t necessarily rely on obvious tropes and is worth the wait.” — Time Out

5. “Incredibles 2” — 80%

Critic score: 80%

Date released: June 15, 2018

What critics said: “Though it would be unrealistic to expect ‘Incredibles 2’ to have quite the genre-busting surprise of the original, it is as good as it can be without that shock of the new — delivering comedy, adventure and all too human moments with a generous hand.” — Los Angeles Times
