5/5 93% Dunkirk (2017) Spinoza once opined that you couldn't use words to describe God, because by choosing any one or several, you would be eliminating the infinite nature of the deity. That essential inadequacy of words drives much of Nolan's stunning film.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 76% The Little Hours (2017) A rowdy romp told with an astute sense of character and a fine sense of restraint. The tone is as deadpan as Plaza's demeanor, but just as rich, in a script that bubbles with wit as well as profanity.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) epic in scope, it is also a dialectic on [kindness], that most humane of qualities for which, in a perfect world, nature would select. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Holland is a disarming blend of teenage impetuosity, angst, and awkwardness, and one that is still absorbing with unaffected glee the whiz-bang niftiness of his superpowers. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 98% The Big Sick (2017) Wickedly funny, this is a film that does not shy away from conflict and heartbreak, but it also finds the reason that love is worth going through it all.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 89% Lost in Paris (Paris pieds nus) (2017) a charming comedy of coincidences as stylized as it is heartwarming with every movement executed with sophisticated syncopation and a burbling sense of fun.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 78% The Hero (2017) Engages at the conscious and the subliminal level, finding a connection with the audience that goes beyond words, but also celebrating the power of the right words spoken at the right moment. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

1/5 19% Baywatch (2017) a mishmash of puerile humor, egregious comic timing, and so many genitalia jokes that one ponders the self-esteem surrounding such things of the writers involved in formulating them.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

1/5 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) It's as though Guy Ritchie binge-watched Game of Thrones and then thought to himself, "Hey, I can do that!" To which I reply, "No, Guy. No you can't." ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) This sequel drifts a bit into maudlin sentimentality that has no place in this particular universe, even if this installment is all about daddy issues. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 No Score Yet Twenty Twenty-Four (2016) ...works as a mystery/thriller, but is so much richer when its allegorical implications are considered and it is revealed as a profoundly tantalizing metaphysical conundrum made manifest. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 63% Tommy's Honour (2017) An admirable effort, rather than one that will get the adrenaline pumping, with fine performances, albeit ones that seem muted amid the prevailing decorum of 19th-century Britain. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 87% The Lost City of Z (2017) Gray and Grann do more than tell a cracking good story, they contemplate the incomparable joy and driving madness found in the quest for greatness, making the Grail of secondary importance.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 73% The Void (2017) A beautifully executed horror film that pays homage to the genre's roots while carving out its own enigmatically creepy mythos. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 30% The Assignment (2017) With an arch wink and a nod, THE ASSIGNMENT dissects society's norms via its less reputable elements as cleanly and mercilessly as Jane removed Frankie's manhood.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 73% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2017) Never routine, exquisitely savage, it is an artfully disquieting experience equally terrifying in both innuendo and flashing blade. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 81% Mean Dreams (2017) Paxton, in one of his last performances, is a diabolical blend of fresh-faced wholesomeness and pure evil.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 67% Life (2017) It's more interesting than compelling, with committed performances by the cast, and a whiz-bang use of the idea that in zero gravity, there is no right-side-up. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 21% The Shack (2017) The constant reminders that everything is going to be alright, and that we should not worry our pretty little heads about why evil is allowed to exist, has a distinctly condescending tone that for all the noble speeches leaves a sour aftertaste. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 93% Logan (2017) A tale that is as psychically violent as it is physically so, it is a sharp descant to the earlier films in the franchise as it presents a brooding, aging Logan very near the end of his existential rope.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) WALL is a big, blustery action-adventure flick in the classic mold, but with one exception. There's no damsel in distress here. Instead, the winsome lady of the piece is a warrior with nerves of steel and no fear of heights. Kudos there.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

1/5 10% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) the stuff of a potboiler, and one that is ready, willing, and able to boil over into the ridiculous with alarming regularity‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 42% A Cure For Wellness (2017) This hodge-podge of dental torture, putative madness, and a very clumsy use of eels as metaphor wears out its welcome well before the final credits roll, skittering pell-mell towards an ending that is painfully obvious and even more painfully trite.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) revisits all those elements that were so very right in the first film, and ... amps up into another violent flight of fancy replete with exquisitely choreographed mayhem and a suitably black sense of humor. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 25% The Comedian (2017) I wish THE COMEDIAN were more focused. As it ponders issues of ageism and talent in the age of social media and viral videos, it may never gel, but it does resound.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 94% Neruda (2016) As a portrait of an artist with imperfections and genius, it has a truth that mere reportage cannot approach. As a portrait of a country grappling with applying abstract ideology to human endeavor, it is unimpeachable.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 96% Paterson (2016) The quintessence of everything Jim Jarmusch has done before. Playful in approach, profound in meaning, it is a lyrical evocation of joy and sorrow as lived by a bus driver/poet during one eventful yet ordinary week in his life. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 98% Long Way North (Tout en haut du monde) (2016) Uses deceptively simple animation to tell the epic adventure. of Sasha, a spirited and determined 15-year-old set on restoring her family's honor, and the legacy her of her beloved grandfather.‐ Killer Movie Reviews
