44% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Does nothing for anyone who isn't cheering for the cameos of Amy Jo Johnson and Jason David Frank and the one utterance of "Ay-yi-yi!" by Alpha 5.‐ Film School Rejects

44% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) Diesel, who is also a producer, figured the best way to bring xXx back and compete with stuff like Kingsman and his own Fast and Furious is to go full ludicrous.‐ Film School Rejects

67% Rats (2016) Rats is the best horror documentary in terms of using the genre infusion only as a well-orchestrated gimmick and vehicle for interesting nonfiction characters and stories.‐ Film School Rejects

61% Snowden (2016) While the romantic narrative seems most important, the more predominant love story at the core of the movie is that of the director and his subject. Or at his subject.‐ Film School Rejects

3/5 19% Mothers and Daughters (2016) While Mothers and Daughters is not a great movie by any measure, for an ensemble feature tied to Mother's Day, it certainly could have been a lot worse.‐ About.com

2.5/5 17% Ratchet & Clank (2016) The sort of movie where characters aren't so much developed as merely designed and then plainly labeled, defined solely by physical appearance and descriptive monikers.‐ About.com

3/5 77% Keanu (2016) The contrast of the cutest creature ever seen against the bloody world of gangbangers is mostly clever juxtaposition.‐ About.com

1.5/5 6% Mother's Day (2016) The kind of movie where even if you enjoy some of the trite humor you still believe that most of the actors on screen are too good to be there.‐ About.com

2.5/5 76% Elvis & Nixon (2016) It's clear the director, Liza Johnson, didn't have a good grip on whatever Elvis & Nixon is supposed to be, and perhaps she wasn't even sure herself. ‐ About.com
