With a critical approval rating of 83 percent and an audience score of 88 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, "Creed II" has racked up generally positive reviews since its release on November 21. The site's critical consensus has it that the film's "adherence to franchise formula adds up to a sequel with few true surprises, but its time-tested generational themes still pack a solid punch."

Green Book

Tony Lip, a bouncer in 1962, is hired to drive pianist Don Shirley on a tour through the Deep South in the days when African Americans forced to find alternate accommodations and services due to segregation laws below the Mason-Dixon Line relied on a guide called The Negro Motorist Green Book.

With an 82 percent critical approval rating and an audience score of 88 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, "Green Book" has been getting attention — including five Golden Globe nods — since its release on November 16.

Per the site's critical consensus, "'Green Book' takes audiences on a surprisingly smooth ride through potentially bumpy subject matter, fueled by Peter Farrelly's deft touch and a pair of well-matched leads."

Boy Erased

Jared, the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, is outed to his parents at age 19. He is faced with an ultimatum: attend a gay conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends and faith.

With an 81 percent critical approval rating and an audience score of 78 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, "Boy Erased" has racked up generally positive reviews since its release on November 16. According to the site's critical consensus, "Anchored in empathy by writer-director-star Joel Edgerton, 'Boy Erased' proves the road to complex, powerfully performed drama can also be paved with good intentions."
