1/5 16% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) If there's a movie worse than this set for release this year, let's hope the distributor has the good sense not to do it.‐ New England Movies Weekly

3.5/5 48% Rough Night (2017) Why is Rough Night different from all other "friends go on a drunken spree" movies? It generates laughs without having to humiliate its characters...‐ New England Movies Weekly

2.5/5 66% Cars 3 (2017) It will keep the young fans happy... but lacks the emotional impact of the far more involving Toy Story sequels.‐ New England Movies Weekly

3.5/5 82% Megan Leavey (2017) Mara shows the grit of a Marine in combat as well as the feelings of the human being inside, never letting one undercut the other.‐ New England Movies Weekly

3.5/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) What makes this a must see for fans of superhero movies is the performance of Israeli actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. This is a star-making turn...‐ New England Movies Weekly

2.5/5 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) As a movie it's disposable. As this year's edition of a favorite ride, it will likely satisfy.‐ New England Movies Weekly

3/5 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) It can't surprise us as the early films did. Instead, it plays in the margins, providing variations on a theme. ‐ New England Movies Weekly

2/5 49% Everything, Everything (2017) For teenagers who feel they have discovered passion and love-sentiments apparently unknown to earlier generations-this is a movie that may to speak to them. ‐ New England Movies Weekly

2.5/5 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) There are many movies of the King Arthur legend... Director Guy Ritchie wasn't put off. There hadn't been one that combined martial arts with giant snakes; now, there has been. ‐ New England Movies Weekly

2.5/5 36% Snatched (2017) There's so many ways that Snatched could have gone wrong that it's amazing that they managed to pull it off, more or less.‐ New England Movies Weekly

4/5 81% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) We come for the eye-popping visuals and the snarky humor, but we're touched by the emotional ties of the characters...‐ New England Movies Weekly

2.5/5 26% Unforgettable (2017) Heigl and Dawson-and DiNovi-deserve better. So do moviegoers.‐ New England Movies Weekly

3.5/5 67% Free Fire (2017) It is, in effect, a remake of Laurel and Hardy's "Battle of the Century," substituting bullets for pies.‐ New England Movies Weekly

Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2017
3/5 30% The Assignment (2017) ...a real curiosity and is probably destined for cult status.‐ New England Movies Weekly
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2017
3/5 51% The Boss Baby (2017) It should engage the youngsters but will leave more sophisticated viewers-say, those older than eight or nine-wanting something with more substance...‐ New England Movies Weekly

2/5 67% Life (2017) It's not terrible. It's just terribly unoriginal.‐ New England Movies Weekly

3.5/5 93% Logan (2017) For fans of the "X-Men," this is easily the best entry in the series in some time, a film that's more interested in the characters than in the special effects. ‐ New England Movies Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2017
2.5/5 67% Before I Fall (2017) ...adequate entertainment for the current crop of teens and tweens, but it's not one that their younger siblings will be wanting to see a few years from now. ‐ New England Movies Weekly
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2017
4/5 99% Get Out (2017) It's to Peele's credit that he's able to set up certain expectations and then pull the rug out from under us.‐ New England Movies Weekly
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
4/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) The joys of the film are both visceral and subtle. The subtlety is in the interplay between Chinese and Western expectations, both for the characters and for audiences. ‐ New England Movies Weekly

4/5 42% A Cure For Wellness (2017) ...a gonzo, over-the-top, thriller that slowly morphs into a horror film. Viewers able to buy into this waking nightmare will find themselves amply rewarded.‐ New England Movies Weekly

3/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) It works for the simple reason that the characters take the rules of their world seriously, even if we find them preposterous.‐ New England Movies Weekly

3/5 30% A Dog's Purpose (2017) When the real-world news is so unsettling, a feel-good movie... won't change things, but it provides some pleasant, if temporary, relief. ‐ New England Movies Weekly

3/5 43% Gold (2017) If it didn't turn out to be the Oscar contender it was apparently intended to be, it is nonetheless a fascinating film about our culture and what we really think is of value.‐ New England Movies Weekly

1.5/5 75% Split (2017) Perhaps the most charitable way to look at Split is that is a cry for help by its director. "Stop me before I film again," he seems to be saying.‐ New England Movies Weekly

4/5 84% The Founder (2017) It tells us the story behind a business we all know, or think we know, and gives Michael Keaton one of his best roles ever. Don't miss it.‐ New England Movies Weekly

3/5 43% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) Taking a page from the Fast and Furious series, which started out lackluster and then took off in the later entries, this jumpstarts the franchise and gives it new life. ‐ New England Movies Weekly

4/5 34% Live By Night (2017) ...doesn't so much break new ground in the gangster film as deepen explorations into areas opened by others.‐ New England Movies Weekly
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2017

Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2017
2/5 93% La La Land (2016) ...a film that tries too hard and is always showing how much it's straining. ‐ New England Movies Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 24, 2016
3.5/5 93% Fences (2016) Bringing Wilson's plays to wider audiences is a good thing. Fences preserves the drama, if not quite translating it into film. ‐ New England Movies Weekly

2.5/5 40% Why Him? (2016) The world would not have been poorer if it had never been made, but for those seeking undemanding laughs during the holiday season, it will likely do the trick. ‐ New England Movies Weekly

5/5 89% Jackie (2016) We've known for some time that Natalie Portman is a fine actress, but with her portrayal of Jacqueline Kennedy she steps into the front ranks.‐ New England Movies Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2016
5/5 73% Sing (2016) As with the year's best animation, Zootopia and Kubo and the Two Strings, it's a movie that adults can go to without any kids and enjoy it on their own. ‐ New England Movies Weekly
