5/10 32% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Better than the last one, but that's not saying much. Time for Jack Sparrow to retire, although Geoffrey Rush occasionally livens things up, and Kaya Scodelario is one to watch. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

5/10 No Score Yet M.F.A. (2017) Goes off the rails after an excellent first half hour, but Eastwood's performance is quite good, and the movie has its moments. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

8/10 100% It Comes At Night (2017) The payoff is big, and the journey is never less than absorbing, and this, along with GET OUT, proves that horror as a genre for legit A-level work is back in full-fo‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

8/10 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Lucky for Universal, for whom this series has been the proverbial golden goose, THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS proves star Vin Diesel and the rest of his crew still have enough NOS in their engines to keep the franchise going for at least a few more films.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

4/10 65% Gifted (2017) While Fred, the one-eyed cat, almost makes GIFTED worth checking out, it's ultimately a too simplistic and watered-down child custody tale. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
