C+ 30% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) In order to survive and thrive, the franchise needs to stop relying solely on Depp and introduce younger characters who can carry future movies.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

C 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) Alien: Covenant is a welcome blast of nostalgia for horror fans who love a blood-drenched, chest-bursting monster. For the rest of us, it's more stale than scary.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B- 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Dom, the Fast and Furious franchise is a beautiful high-performance vehicle in need of a few adjustments. Drive it back to the garage, strip it down to the essentials, and it will purr for years to come.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B+ 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) While Kong delivers violence and scares, it's the film's willingness to show that its monster is also a hero that makes it one of the best spins on King Kong in a long time.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

A- 84% The Founder (2017) Is it possible to be ethical and win at business? Were the McDonald brothers too stuck in the past to succeed? These are among the questions you'll ponder after seeing The Founder, a movie that will change the way you see Big Macs.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

C 34% Live By Night (2017) There's a lot going on in Live by Night, and unfortunately the results are flaccid and dull -- except when a car chase or shootout delivers a jolt.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B- 14% Man Down (2016) Man Down ends on a grim note, because it isn't the sort of movie that wraps up with tidy conclusions. It doesn't want us to pity soldiers afflicted with PTSD, but to regard them with compassion.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B 96% Moana (2016) The animation is so flawless that the sailing sequences look as though they were filmed on location. The realistic motion of the water, as well as Moana's and Maui's long, wavy hair, is especially impressive.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B 55% Rules Don't Apply (2016) The film's intertwined plots -- Hughes' descent into dementia and the relationship between Marla and Frank -- are equally interesting, due to strong performances by Beatty, Collins and Ehrenreich.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) The movie opens up a rich, multilayered world that holds the promise of interesting stories to come.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

A 98% Moonlight (2016) At times, Chiron's life is heartbreaking, but the film ends with a life-affirming, yet understated, message. Moonlight deserves a spot among the most provocative films of the year.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

A 71% The Birth of a Nation (2016) Brutal, violent, unflinching and unrelenting, Nate Parker's The Birth of a Nation -- based on the true-life story of an 1831 slave rebellion -- demands attention from a racially divided America.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer

B- 100% For the Love of Spock (2016) There's nothing wrong with celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek with the nostalgia served in For the Love of Spock.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
