2.5/4 65% Cars 3 (2017) You probably won't regret taking the kids to Cars 3, but they won't be missing much if you decide to skip it, either.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 50% Paris Can Wait (Bonjour Anne) (2017) With a little more conflict, Paris Can Wait might have done a better job of keeping its audience locked in, but it is so tension-free that you begin to feel like you're watching a travel documentary hosted by people who don't know you're there.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 55% 47 Meters Down (2017) 47 Meters Down is a fun kind of bad.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 23% The Book of Henry (2017) There are a lot of things to like about "The Book of Henry," but none of them are enough to offset a bizarre plot twist that tries to turn a tender drama into an action suspense film.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 84% The Wedding Plan (2017) Director Rama Burshtein's effort is a thoughtful and unique film that will be relatable to anyone who had to work a little to find love, even if it didn't take them quite so long.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 92% I, Daniel Blake (2017) If you choose to see this one -- and it is well worth a look -- you might want to make plans to get some ice cream or something after to cheer you up.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 15% The Mummy (2017) The Mummy is at best a muddled echo of the kinds of things that more seasoned franchises do much better.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 75% My Cousin Rachel (2017) If you're trying to pull a coherent message from the movie's web of tragedy, romance and human weakness, you may wind up scratching your head.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 86% It Comes At Night (2017) It Comes at Night is a total success, building dread gradually and avoiding an overreliance on the kind of jump scares lesser films mine to absurdity. It makes "It Comes at Night" less fun, but more resonant.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

67% Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary (2017) Scheinfeld's film may not reinvent the documentary genre the way its subject attacked the genre of jazz, and at times it seems to gloss over problematic areas, but his uplifting subject makes his film more than worth a look.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

92% Wonder Woman (2017) If Wonder Woman is a sign of what is to come from DC, it's a very good sign.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) The result is a bloated, lumbering ship with no one at the helm. ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 85% My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2017) While this little animated production does feature some creative highlights, its content makes it a tough endorsement at full ticket price.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 48% Everything, Everything (2017) Director Stella Meghie's film pales next to its competition and even has the unfortunate audacity to suggest where you should go instead.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 93% Obit (2017) Its style may be routine, but any flaws will easily be overshadowed by Gould's compelling portrait of a dark corner of noteworthy journalism.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

1.5/4 18% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) The Long Haul suffers from a poor script, unconvincing acting and an agitating soundtrack that makes the whole production feel decidedly low budget. ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
71% Alien: Covenant (2017) Covenant feels decidedly moment-free. It won't be ranked with the worst entries in the series but, in the long run, it will probably go down as franchise filler.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 55% Lowriders (2017) Lowriders has a lot of thoughtful parts that don't quite mesh into a coherent whole.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 81% Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent (2017) The sum total of the effort reveals a man who was exquisitely unique, yet every bit the classic artist stereotype: controlling, tormented, driven and lonely. ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
2/4 30% 3 Generations (2017) Director Gaby Dellal's 3 Generations encourages its audience to look at the transgender community with a humane and compassionate eye, but her film will probably reinforce more perspectives than it changes.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

84% Risk (2017) In total, Risk is a compelling piece of viewing, as long as those viewers understand its limitations. ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

69% The Wall (2017) Suffice it to say, the ending has an unfortunate way of undercutting the credibility of what comes before it. ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Purist devotees of Arthurian legend may not be too crazy on this stylish, audience-friendly take on the famous king, but "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" should provide solid swashbuckling entertainment value for summer audiences of 2017.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
93% A Quiet Passion (2017) Overall, A Quiet Passion is interesting if not always enjoyable, although it gets better as it moves along and will probably resonate most with the 19th-century poet's fans.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted May 5, 2017
81% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Both hard-core comic fans and more casual movie fans will be happy with the results, though parents may cringe to find Vol. 2 a bit more crude and violent than the first film.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 40% How to Be a Latin Lover (2017) How to Be a Latin Lover can be seedy, but it's a lot sweeter than you might expect.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted May 4, 2017
15% The Circle (2017) The tough thing about The Circle is that its legitimate message should be relatable. Unfortunately, you can always leave a good idea stalled in the driveway.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

70% Growing Up Smith (Good Ol' Boy) (2017) Lee provides the kind of welcome down-to-earth good-old-boy charm he used in TV's My Name is Earl and Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

97% Graduation (Bacalaureat) (2017) Altogether, Graduation holds the hearts of its viewers, who will question how far they will go on behalf of their innocents at home, but it also makes it clear how Romeo's world, fair or not, exists largely of his making.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 40% Phoenix Forgotten (2017) Phoenix Forgotten is more intense than scary, and won't make anyone lose any sleep unless they're still waiting for a payoff that just isn't going to come.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 50% The Promise (2017) The film definitely has its moments, and at arm's length, The Promise will resonate. But overall, it feels like a missed opportunity, a good film that could have been much better.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 87% Their Finest (2017) Balancing wit and romance against a life-or-death drama can be a tricky balance. Their Finest stumbles a little around the middle, but recovers well enough to produce a satisfying film.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3/4 96% After the Storm (Umi yori mo mada fukaku) (2017) After the Storm is a sad but insightful story about a father trying to reconcile his mistakes.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3.5/4 85% Disneynature Born In China (2017) Born in China" may not inspire the merchandising juggernaut of some of Disney's other properties, but it is a fun, insightful and beautiful way to learn about a part of the world most will never see otherwise.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

1.5/4 11% Spark: A Space Tail (2017) There's a fine line between homage and a lack of original ideas. Unfortunately Spark: A Space Tail falls on the latter side of the equation.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2/4 65% Tommy's Honour (2017) Too often, Connery's effort feels a little too easy to pass over.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
90% Frantz (2017) With its subtle, artistic execution and poignant story, Frantz becomes a thoughtful reflection on the pain of war and the nature of forgiveness, even in the most extreme of circumstances. It's also a tragic reminder of how love can transcend deep wounds.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Its most impressive feat may be how, for all of its mayhem, The Fate of the Furious still manages to finish with a positive message about family. That's one rule these movies never seem willing to break.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3.5/4 69% Gifted (2017) Gifted is the moving and resonant story of a brilliant child trapped in a custody battle between two relatives.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
3/4 79% The Case for Christ (2017) The Case for Christ still has its weaknesses, and even the faithful might feel that a secular inquiry into the evidence of Christ's Resurrection is kind of missing the point. But as a film, it is a sure step in a positive direction.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
2.5/4 38% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) It still features a talented cast and professional production, but a half-baked theme and low-conflict plot leave the movie feeling bland and forgettable, as hard to distinguish as its primary characters.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
3/4 98% Your Name. (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2017) Your Name is a remarkably bland title for a pretty interesting movie, but Shinkai's effort - based on his own original novel - is a curious blend of two complex genres that elevates both. ‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

2.5/4 46% Going in Style (2017) At 11 p.m. on cable, or even at the dollar theater, a reunion special can be perfectly good. But like the bank job their onscreen characters are struggling to pull off, Going in Style feels like a film that is just beyond salvaging.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
51% The Boss Baby (2017) Boss Baby does have some nice moments, and it manages to draw some laughs. Things eventually work around to that accepting-a-sibling big picture, which is nice. But Boss Baby is a step down from the better animation efforts out there.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
3/4 60% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) The Zookeeper's Wife may not rank with the best of its genre, but as a unique perspective on the Holocaust, it is a moving celebration of the people who fought against it.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
2.5/4 45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Whether Ghost in the Shell's story is faithful or not, it feels empty, and the final product feels like a missed opportunity.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
2.5/4 46% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) There's some humor, and there's some action, but the style feels like any other 2017 sci-fi action film.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
3/4 100% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) Fans of stop-motion animation will be pleased to know they have another gem on their hands. My Life as a Zucchini is a bit darker than your usual kids movie, but it is a wonderful thing to watch.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City

3.5/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Even if the new Beauty and the Beast doesn't manage to improve on the old one, it does offer a quality spectacle worth seeing.‐ Deseret News, Salt Lake City
