Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Patton Oswalt: Annihilation (2017) It's a beautiful tonal balancing act for an artist to even attempt an anecdote that both makes you laugh and cry, but Oswalt does it simply by being a talented, natural speaker.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 57% Blood Money (2017) The final 20 minutes of this B-movie reveal why a few talented people were interested in making it, but it's too little too late by that point.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 66% Happy Death Day (2017) Doesn't seem to enjoy its own ridiculous concept enough, and yet refuses to stage any set pieces that feel honestly scary either.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% Lowlife (2017) A movie with the sole purpose of an adrenalin rush, designed to strap you to your seat, entertain you, and spit you back into reality, exhausted but satisfied.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 93% Spielberg (2017) Spielberg will make movie lovers happy, or, more accurately, just remind them how happy its subject made them in the past.‐ RogerEbert.com

2/4 76% Una (2017) Great actors Ben Mendelsohn and Rooney Mara do their best to elevate the frustrating Una, but their director doesn't seem to understand what he has in these two performers.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 88% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) One of the most deeply philosophical and challenging sci-fi films of all time.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 89% Gerald's Game (2017) The best King adaptation of the year so far.‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 75% Pearl Jam: Let's Play Two (2017) The passion behind its creation, along with the passion of its frontman, allow one to look past its flaws with relative ease.‐ RogerEbert.com

100% On the Seventh Day (2017) [Fernando] Cardona's performance is unshowy and great, but the best thing about [Jim] McKay's film is how well the filmmaker uses his setting.‐ RogerEbert.com

86% Princess Cyd (2017) Princess Cyd is one of those films in which the artifice of filmmaking almost drops away and you start to feel like you know Cyd and Miranda.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
89% A Ciambra (2017) A film that takes its time and earns its narrative twists gradually.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
92% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2017) A visually mesmerizing film, even as it captures a nightmarish situation.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
74% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) Fails to turn its title characters into three-dimensional people, leaning into their public personas instead of sketching in the details that would make them feel genuine.‐ RogerEbert.com

43% The Lodgers (2017) A near-miss for this hardcore horror and Gothic thriller fan. It tries to get underneath, but remains skin-deep.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
57% On Chesil Beach (2018) A solid drama made from a stellar book, but if you see it even just for the two performances, you won't be disappointed.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
90% I, Tonya (2017) The dark comedy approach to the story of Tonya Harding that you had no idea you needed as badly as you do.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
91% Beast (2017) Features a truly breakthrough performance (maybe two) and announces writer/director Michael Pearce as a talent to watch.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
86% Who We Are Now (2017) Who We Are Now just ticks too many cliched boxes, particularly in the dialogue department.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
88% The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen) (2017) While Kaurismaki's deadpan sense of humor remains, his humanist side feels more prominent than ever before.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
70% The Square (2017) It's a visually striking, well-performed film that some people will adore and others will hate. I suspect it will be divisive, kind of like all great art, and I think that's exactly how Ostlund wants it.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
64% Happy End (2017) It too often feels like Happy End is a bunch of ideas in search of a movie.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
100% Jane (2017) A mesmerizing documentary, filled with incredible footage of Goodall in the field and modern-day interviews, all set to the best score from Philip Glass in years.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
92% Disobedience (2017) I wish the rest of the movie felt as fully realized as [McAdams'] performance because, like the relationship at its center, there's potential here for something beautiful that feels just out of reach.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
84% Thelma (2017) A beautifully modulated thriller, and it comes with a message that feels valuable-it's not homosexuality that will bring about the devil but its repression.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
88% The Third Murder (Sandome no satsujin) (2017) A good film that falls short of the masterful director's best work by virtue of being too leadenly plotted in the second half, when it turns into a surprisingly flat courtroom drama.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
55% Manhunt (2017) It's a dozen movies thrown into a blender, but Woo didn't hit 'puree' long enough.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
100% Revenge (2017) Ample style, remarkable tension, decidedly French black humor, and more blood than I believe the human body actually contains.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
94% Bodied (2017) Offers an entertaining window into a culture that most people probably know very little about, but it's also a clever take on a generation more aware of what's offensive and what's not than any before.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
94% The Disaster Artist (2017) Franco remains one of the most fascinating performers of his generation, even if his directing ability needs a little work.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
73% The Ritual (2017) Starts with an effective inciting incident but devolves into something that feels overly familiar.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
44% Downrange (2017) Downrange sees the director of Versus and Midnight Meat Train saddled with an inexperienced cast, a tin ear for dialogue, and a thin premise.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
60% The Crescent (2017) No energy, no rhythm, and no atmosphere, unless you think paint swirls and cellos are terrifying.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
80% Mom & Dad (2017) Kind of feels like half a movie and only half of that is any good.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
92% Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres!) (2017) If this is your thing, if you loved their previous movies, don't miss one. If you see film more as a storytelling vehicle than a visual medium, avoid it.‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 68% mother! (2017) At times horrifying, at times riveting, at times baffling, and at times like nothing you've ever seen before.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
95% First Reformed (2017) A film of fascinating conversations, anchored by Hawke's completely genuine performance.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
77% Darkest Hour (2017) An acting exercise weighed down by costumes, make-up, and over-lighting that has a few things to say about the backbone of a great world leader but nothing you haven't really heard before.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
1.5/4 41% Suburbicon (2017) This startling misfire is a tonal disaster from start to finish.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
97% The Shape of Water (2017) One of [del Toro's] deepest, most complex, most rewarding, and flat-out beautiful films.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
4/4 98% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) One of those truly rare films that feels both profound and grounded; inspirational without ever manipulatively trying to be so.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
2.5/4 84% Battle of the Sexes (2017) There's a better version of Battle of the Sexes that focuses even more fully on King, villainizing Riggs and his grotesque culture of sexism in a way this movie disappointingly seems scared to do.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2017
2/4 60% Breathe (2017) The performances and the inherent power of the true story keep it from being a complete disaster, but one hopes Serkis moves on to more challenging material with his follow-up.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2017
64% Downsizing (2017) Throughout Downsizing, I kept asking myself what the point of all of this was, never engaged by its hodgepodge of themes. I wish the filmmakers had asked that question too.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
3/4 96% Stronger (2017) Stronger transcends your standard inspirational drama mostly through two fantastic performances, but also in the way it understands that trauma isn't inspirational to the people who suffer it.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
3.5/4 79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) With uniformly great performances throughout the cast and Lanthimos' stunning eye for detail and composition, this is one of the most unforgettable films of the year.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2017
4/4 96% The Florida Project (2017) A film of small notes that combine to form something major, the kind of movie that sneaks up on you and sticks with you‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
2/4 30% The Vault (2017) Ultimately, The Vault isn't silly enough to be horrendously memorable or tense enough to be effective as the genre exercise it could have been. It falls into that underdeveloped gap in the middle.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
1/4 42% Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) A movie that lacks the energy, wit and heart of its predecessor and is the kind of project that probably never should have happened.‐ RogerEbert.com
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
1.5/4 51% England Is Mine (2017) For the majority, Lowden feels restrained by a director who has a very specific, flat vision of a musical legend.‐ RogerEbert.com
