3/5 15% The Dark Tower (2017) More of an "Inspired By" vs "Based On" take on the multi-book series but thanks to the two leads, it does offer some escapist entertainment if you are willing to accept them not following the books.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

2/5 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Things such as a plot, character development, and a brisker run time simply got in the way of Bay's desire to blow more things up and fill each shot with as many FX sequences as possible.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

3/5 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) The film does take some liberties with the Arthurian Legend and does go a bit heavy on the FX especially with the inclusion of giant creatures which made me think at times I was watching something from the "Lord of the Rings". ‐ Skewed and Reviewed

4.5/5 93% Logan (2017) The film is also moving in a way that one would not expect from a film in the X-men series and if this is truly the last outing for Jackman, he could not have picked a more perfect film as this is easily the best of the series.‐ Skewed and Reviewed
