Director: James Foley | Stars: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson, Eloise Mumford

Votes: 59,136 | Gross: $100.41M

eCartelera rank: #1 "No script, no characters, nothing, just a pile of unstructured scenes starring actors who remind you in every single shot how little they want to be there. The only good thing about this film is that it has finally freed us from this saga."

2. A Wrinkle in Time (2018)

PG | 109 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy

53 Metascore

Votes: 42,578 | Gross: $100.48M

eCartelera rank: #2 "What were you thinking, Disney? (...) From its incoherent story to its strange changes of tone, to Ava DuVernay's clumsy direction, this one makes no sense."

3. Slender Man (2018)

PG-13 | 93 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

30 Metascore

In a small town in Massachusetts, a group of friends, fascinated by the internet lore of the Slender Man, attempt to prove that he doesn't actually exist - until one of them mysteriously goes missing.

Director: Sylvain White | Stars: Joey King, Julia Goldani Telles, Jaz Sinclair, Annalise Basso

Votes: 30,544 | Gross: $30.57M

eCartelera rank: #3 "A rehash of horror references that falls into the most overused clichés and throws the film into ridicule."

4. I Feel Pretty (2018)

PG-13 | 110 min | Comedy, Romance

48 Metascore

A woman struggling with insecurity wakes from a fall believing she is the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet. Her new confidence empowers her to live fearlessly, but what happens when she realizes her appearance never changed?

Directors: Abby Kohn, Marc Silverstein | Stars: Amy Schumer, Michelle Williams, Emily Ratajkowski, Tom Hopper

Votes: 51,188 | Gross: $48.80M

eCartelera rank: #4 "Despite the good intentions and the presence of Michelle Williams, the movie wasted its potential in a predictable, unfunny script, and its lead's dramatic talent was conspicuous by its absence."

5. Empowered (2018)

TV-MA | 87 min | Comedy

After to visit a Hindi guru healer, Paz loses control over what she says and starts speaking out everything that comes to her mind.

Director: Santiago Segura | Stars: Maribel Verdú, Diego Martín, Toni Acosta, Rafael Spregelburd

Votes: 2,149

eCartelera rank: #5 "Shallow, predictable, absurd and totally unfunny. But that's not the worst; it's that it tries to play the feminist card only to fall back onto the most stale gender clichés. Not even the ever-adaptable Maribel Verdú can save the show."

6. The Nun (2018)

R | 96 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

46 Metascore

A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.

Director: Corin Hardy | Stars: Demián Bichir, Taissa Farmiga, Jonas Bloquet, Bonnie Aarons

Votes: 127,450 | Gross: $117.45M

eCartelera rank: #6 "[The Conjuring's] latest spin-off arrived surrounded by great expectation and became the biggest box-office premiere in the franchise, but the interest soon turned into disappointment when we saw what it was: a horror film that didn't cause fear, but boredom and apathy, with trite scares, a half-baked story and stupid characters. That is to say, a missed opportunity."

7. Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

PG-13 | 135 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

62 Metascore

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in an epic action-adventure that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.

Director: Ron Howard | Stars: Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover

Votes: 307,447 | Gross: $213.77M

eCartelera rank: #7 "Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) caused from disinterest to rejection in the audience, who still had the divisive Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017) too fresh in their minds and couldn't accept any actor other than Harrison Ford in the iconic role. (...) The film is generic, lacking in risk, and above all else, unnecessary."

8. Venom (2018)

PG-13 | 112 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

35 Metascore

A failed reporter is bonded to an alien entity, one of many symbiotes who have invaded Earth. But the being takes a liking to Earth and decides to protect it.

Director: Ruben Fleischer | Stars: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze

Votes: 389,716 | Gross: $213.52M

eCartelera rank: #8 "Although the movie fulfills its purpose as light entertainment, its many flaws can't be overlooked: a basic, hole-plagued script, really abrupt changes in pace and tone, and a mostly apathetic cast, with the exception of Tom Hardy, who gives his all to salvage the film."

9. The Cloverfield Paradox (2018)

PG-13 | 102 min | Action, Horror, Sci-Fi

37 Metascore

Orbiting a planet on the brink of war, scientists test a device to solve an energy crisis, and end up face-to-face with a dark alternate reality.

Director: Julius Onah | Stars: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Oyelowo, Daniel Brühl, John Ortiz

Votes: 98,692

eCartelera rank: #9 "The movie was mediocre, confusing and too reminiscent of sci-fi classics such as Solyaris (1972) or Alien (1979), but not holding a candle up to either of them."

10. The Predator (2018)

R | 107 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

48 Metascore

When a young boy accidentally triggers the universe's most lethal hunters' return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled scientist can prevent the end of the human race.

Director: Shane Black | Stars: Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key

Votes: 120,664 | Gross: $51.02M

eCartelera rank: #10 "The plot made no sense, the characters overshadowed the Predator (for all the wrong reasons) and the comedy Shane Black injected into the saga wasn't well received by viewers. Maybe it's time to throw in the towel."
