Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
7/10 61% A Futile and Stupid Gesture (2017) It's to A Futile and Stupid Gesture's credit that it manages to have a widespread appeal, and will likely be an enjoyable viewing experience for both those already interested in the history of comedy and those who may know next-to-nothing about Lampoon.‐ IGN Movies

6/10 71% Ferdinand (2017) With a funny set of side characters and a lovably kindhearted lead, Ferdinand finds a way to promote being kind to others without becoming an afterschool special. Granted, it doesn't ever go out of its way to be very unique or surprising.‐ IGN Movies

7/10 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Even if some of its subplots and emotional throughlines don't quite click, the action-packed fun and humor should still make it worth your price of admission.‐ IGN Movies

8/10 96% The Florida Project (2017) It may not be an easy piece of work to digest at times, but the emotions it's able to conjure will hit you with an unavoidable force.‐ IGN Movies

5.5/10 29% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Kathryn Hahn delivers another standout performance in A Bad Moms Christmas, which is nonetheless a disappointingly uneven comedy.‐ IGN Movies

9.5/10 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) McDonagh has, once again, entrusted some of the best actors working today with delivering his words. But while everyone in the film deserves their fair share of praise, it's Sam Rockwell and Frances McDormand who shine brightest.‐ IGN Movies

8.8/10 67% Wonderstruck (2017) Wonderstruck may not reach the same emotional heights as some of Todd Haynes' previous work, yet the film is still a magical achievement.‐ IGN Movies

7/10 62% The Foreigner (2017) The Foreigner uses the talents of both Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan quite well, turning the well-worn personas of both actors on their heads.‐ IGN Movies

7.5/10 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) It may not be as cohesive or compelling as some of Simon Curtis' previous outings, but there's more than enough good here to still recommend it.‐ IGN Movies

6.5/10 40% The Mountain Between Us (2017) If there's any reason to see The Mountain Between Us, it's the commendable work of both Idris Elba and Kate Winslet in its lead roles. More specifically, the energy that the film manages to create during their scenes together in its first half.‐ IGN Movies

3.5/10 55% Killing Gunther (2017) Killing Gunther is an astonishingly unfunny film considering the level of sheer comedic talent involved in it. Its lack of energy or character development keeps the film from ever finding its groove.‐ IGN Movies

7.5/10 55% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) While The LEGO Ninjago Movie does venture into overly cliched and cheesy territory at times, the performances of its actors and excited attitude of the material keep it from ever going stale.‐ IGN Movies

6.8/10 34% American Assassin (2017) Getting Mitch Rapp right is what the film needed most in order to work, and fortunately he ends up being an interesting enough protagonist for audiences to be willing to follow him throughout the film's story.‐ IGN Movies

6.5/10 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) [The Hitman's Bodyguard] knows what it is, and lives in its ridiculous skin with an infectious, gleeful attitude. ‐ IGN Movies

4.5/10 8% The Emoji Movie (2017) While The Emoji Movie manages to find some ingenious ways of explaining the "daily life of an Emoji," its inability to deliver emotionally or thematically keeps it from ever feeling like a worthwhile experience.‐ IGN Movies

8/10 93% Logan Lucky (2017) With his latest directorial effort, Soderbergh has made a film that not only constantly pokes fun at its own characters and their lives, but finds a way to imbue each of them with a soul and heart along the way.‐ IGN Movies

7.8/10 77% Atomic Blonde (2017) Atomic Blonde has attitude aplenty and the fervent style of its execution is so staggering and exciting to watch that it made it one of the best times I've had in the theater this year.‐ IGN Movies

4/10 16% Wish Upon (2017) It achieves the same kind of thrills that the Final Destination films did, but it also feels just as, if not even more, thin and dumb as those movies. Just go see something else at the cinema.‐ IGN Movies

6/10 78% The Little Hours (2017) The Little Hours succeeds on the talents of its cast members, with Nick Offerman, John C. Reilly, and Fred Armisen all turning in consistently funny performances, alongside the less impressive main cast members.‐ IGN Movies

7/10 86% Okja (2017) Okja has its fair share of pacing and tonal issues, but is otherwise so technically well-crafted and entertaining throughout that it's still one of this season's most worthwhile endeavors.‐ IGN Movies

6/10 59% Despicable Me 3 (2017) Thanks to the charming nature of the characters and their genuine good heartedness, Despicable Me 3 manages to be an entertaining enough film to feel like a decent continuation of the previous two chapters.‐ IGN Movies

7.9/10 78% The Beguiled (2017) It may not be Coppola's most thought-provoking or emotional outing to date, but it's a chilling and stunningly well-made one nonetheless.‐ IGN Movies

8/10 86% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) Thanks to a top-notch screenplay by Nicholas Stoller, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie manages to be both a faithful adaptation of Dav Pilkey's source material and a fun-filled animated adventure suitable for all ages.‐ IGN Movies

4/10 20% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul is yet another disappointing attempt by Hollywood to deliver an adaptation worthy of its source material.‐ IGN Movies

6.5/10 80% Chuck (2017) Chuck doesn't contribute anything new to the boxing drama... but with a strong lead performance from Liev Schreiber and a dependable supporting cast, Chuck manages to bring the story of its protagonist to life with heart and respect.‐ IGN Movies

5/10 36% Snatched (2017) Snatched has its fair share of laughs, but the film's attempts at sustaining a legitimate emotional underpinning throughout are unsuccessful, thanks to a lackluster turn from Schumer, and some tiresome writing all across the board.‐ IGN Movies

6/10 16% The Circle (2017) The Circle feels like it could have benefited from more time in the editing room and a more streamlined script.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
6.5/10 74% Sleight (2017) Sleight is a slow-burn drama that doesn't feel as fresh as it may want. But what it does, it does well because of its deep commitment to its characters and the creation of its tone and world.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2017
5.5/10 49% The Promise (2017) The fact that The Promise still manages to hit moments of real dramatic weight throughout speaks to the tragedy of the material and the abilities of its leads.‐ IGN Movies

3/10 25% Unforgettable (2017) About the only redeeming aspect of the entire film is Dawson's performance.‐ IGN Movies

8.2/10 68% Free Fire (2017) Free Fire is a black comedy adrenaline trip, one that's just as much a situational comedy as it is a guns-blazing, isolated, action film.‐ IGN Movies

5/10 29% Sandy Wexler (2017) Saying Sandy Wexler is the best film Adam Sandler has made or co-written in a long time isn't much of a compliment. Yet, this new Netflix comedy (if you can call it that) is one of the sweetest additions to his filmography.‐ IGN Movies

9/10 87% The Lost City of Z (2017) Featuring a career-best lead performance from Charlie Hunnam and some truly awe-inspiring visuals, it's yet another one of this year's can't-miss films.‐ IGN Movies

4.5/10 38% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) The performances by each of the actors are touching and funny enough in their own right, but the motivations of all of the characters, apart from Smurfette, feel as recycled and cliche as humanly imaginable.‐ IGN Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
4.8/10 52% The Boss Baby (2017) The Boss Baby never stops feeling like a feature-length film that should have been a 10-minute short at best.‐ IGN Movies

6.8/10 68% Life (2017) For those coming into it hoping to see at least a handful of genuinely terrifying moments and kill scenes, along with a new cinematic monster to add to their nightmare fuel, Life should almost certainly do the trick.‐ IGN Movies

7/10 44% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Power Rangers doesn't quite pull off everything it wants to, but it's a fun time at the theater nonetheless.‐ IGN Movies

4/10 52% The Belko Experiment (2017) The Belko Experiment boasts an impressive lineup of both new and veteran character actors, most of whom turn in respectable work here, yet are squandered in irritatingly one-note characters.‐ IGN Movies

8/10 75% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Kong: Skull Island is a welcome return to the silver screen for the King of the Apes.‐ IGN Movies
