81% Disneynature Born In China (2017) John Krasinski narrates, and though he doesn't achieve that mix of gravitas and cheeky wit [of] Sir David Attenborough ... his vocal stylings are perfectly homey and serviceable for the task of guiding us through the lives of these special animals.‐ Los Angeles Times

2/4 45% The Promise (2017) With seemingly all the right pieces, it's a disappointment that "The Promise" lacks the energy and originality needed to sustain itself.‐ Los Angeles Times

2.5/4 25% Unforgettable (2017) It's a uniquely feminine kind of villainy, and Di Novi and Heigl understand it implicitly in order to execute it perfectly.‐ Los Angeles Times

71% Little Boxes (2017) "Little Boxes" offers tame social commentary in a pleasant package.‐ Los Angeles Times

66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The often silly, always outrageous, comfortably formulaic films about fast cars and chosen family have a charm that manages to permeate the crusty exterior of even the most curmudgeonly of critics.‐ Tribune News Service

B+ 57% i hate myself :) (2017) It's refreshing to see a filmmaker embrace this honesty with such gusto (which, like life, is often painful or awkward to experience).‐ The Playlist

46% Ghost in the Shell (2017) It gets bogged down in aesthetics that are stimulating only for the sake of stimulation, seemingly without a flicker of thought behind them. Shell indeed, but there's no ghost at home.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 58% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) The film's flaws in pacing are easily overlooked in the shadow of Chastain's moving performance, as well as the performances of those around her. Caro unspools an evergreen tale about the clarifying power of empathy to diffuse fear and hatred.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 47% Bokeh (2017) What sets "Bokeh" apart among the "low-key apocalypse" cinematic subgenre is not what happens, but what doesn't happen. It's the unknowing that is their undoing. The result is a subtle but ultimately profound humanist message. ‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 47% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) If the Rangers are on the CW, Banks is in a universe of her own, stalking about the small town of Angel Grove in hobo dominatrix gear, dramatically stage whispering, "GOLD," "CRYSTALS" and "KRISPY KREME" to no one in particular.‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 16% CHIPS (2017) Rambunctious and insouciant, "CHIPS" has about as much nutritional cinematic value as the potato variety.‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) The referential treatment is wise - it's truly the only way a sequel like this could get away with existing.... That interrogation becomes a quicksand in which the film is repeatedly and unfortunately bogged down.‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) There's a complicated jumble of gender politics at hand, and any attempt at modernizing the dynamic is more of a random piling on rather than a thoughtful incorporation.‐ Tribune News Service

49% The Belko Experiment (2017) By the end of the film, you're left with the unshakable feeling that everyone involved, from actors to filmmakers to the audience, is, and should have been, better than material like this.‐ Los Angeles Times

4/4 90% Raw (2017) Ducournau vividly illustrates a uniquely feminine body horror, both emotional and corporeal, rendered in vast, bold, dripping red strokes.‐ Tribune News Service

77% Kong: Skull Island (2017) It could have easily been titled "Apocalypse Kong" -- but it's surprisingly fun and fresh.‐ Tribune News Service

3.5/4 80% Personal Shopper (2017) A testament to Stewart who, in her magnetically naturalistic performance, not only proves her versatility, but cements a signature style inextricably linked to persona.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
72% Headshot (2017) the story can't sustain the bloated running time and the ongoing, gratuitous violence. It's not the best showcase for Uwais' skills when he's bringing his fists to a gunfight.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2017
75% Lovesong (2017) A character study of this relationship, casually yet carefully sketched out by Kim in subtle but meaningful gestures and glances. Much is communicated through the eyes, searching for answers in the void of what's not said, but felt.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2017
69% As You Are (2017) This lyrical and ethereal film mixes the stark style of a crime story into a love story, capturing the highs, lows and the deepest, darkest recesses of grungy, stoned teenage life‐ Los Angeles Times

2/4 19% The Shack (2017) If Octavia Spencer is God, then Lord, take me to church.‐ Tribune News Service

3.5/4 92% Logan (2017) Strips away the spandex, the posse and the chaos, distilling the story down to the essence of the man, Logan. What's left is the agony and the ecstasy of mutanthood. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2017
66% Before I Fall (2017) Boasting themes that are both cerebral and philosophical, Before I Fall is a young-adult thriller that goes far beyond the surface level.‐ Tribune News Service

2/4 39% Rock Dog (2017) There's just not enough on the screen to buy into "Rock Dog." It doesn't gel, and lacks the kind of visual kinetics and energy we've come to expect from films of this ilk. ‐ Tribune News Service

4/4 99% Get Out (2017) Peele flips horror conventions on their head, and in doing so, flips our cultural perceptions.‐ Tribune News Service

100% Duckweed (2017) For all of its serious themes, Duckweed has a whimsical, magical realist sensibility, underscored by quirky musical montages and a penchant for American country songs.‐ Los Angeles Times

72% XX (2017) The feminine perspectives of "XX" create for powerfully compelling and original horror tales that operate within the genre while testing the boundaries of traditional storytelling and style‐ Los Angeles Times

2.5 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) A deft illustration of the desire for retreatism inspired by the ruthlessness of modern urban life, and the ways that desire can be exploited.‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 35% The Great Wall (2017) Absolutely bonkers wild.‐ Tribune News Service

4/4 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Quite possibly the best Batman movie ever made, if not a close runner-up to "Batman Returns."‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) A symphony of violence, a ballet even, and the visuals are abstracted to the surreal. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
2/4 9% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Descends straight into a combination of "Dynasty" with shades of cult classic "The Room." It's fantastic because it's complete and utter silly madness. ‐ Tribune News Service

2/4 25% The Comedian (2017) Combustible chemistry is squandered for stale and cliché plot developments.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
2/4 17% The Space Between Us (2017) A sci-fi-tinged heap of sentimentality.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
4/4 99% I Am Not Your Negro (2017) An incisive, biting cultural analysis, a psychological examination of a nation - including its culture and institutions - in denial of its own social constructs of race and racism, created to divide us.‐ Tribune News Service

95% Paris 05:59: Théo & Hugo (Théo et Hugo dans le même bateau) (2017) A remarkably empathetic, big-hearted and love-struck film‐ Los Angeles Times

3/4 42% Gold (2017) You're along for the ride with the fully committed McConaughey, who swings for the fences with his bold acting choices and studious lack of vanity, and he manages to create a seamless, inhabited performance.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2017
B+ 71% The Hero (2017) "The Hero" is a resonant depiction of a man fearlessly reckoning with his life, his image and most importantly, his heart. Sam Elliott could not be more compelling.‐ The Playlist

A 100% City of Ghosts (2017) Jaw dropping. We should be shocked, dismayed and horrified.‐ The Playlist
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2017
2/4 42% The Resurrection of Gavin Stone (2017) A portrayal we haven't often seen before, and marks a new direction for films targeted at that audience. It may even draw a new believer or two, but there's still a long way to go to totally nail the faith-based comedy genre. ‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 84% The Founder (2017) Keaton is fascinating as Kroc, a bad guy who embodies the American Dream - a man who isn't necessarily the best or most talented but who's willing to step on anyone to get ahead.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
3/4 75% Split (2017) Shyamalan demonstrates a mastery over the form of the mean and lean psycho-thriller, aided in no small party by the performances of McAvoy, Taylor-Joy and Buckley, and smooth-yet-unsettling camera work by cinematographer Michael Gioulakis. ‐ Tribune News Service

43% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) If watching Donnie Yen get barreled on a surf-bike is wrong, to hell with being right.‐ Los Angeles Times

32% Monster Trucks (2017) The story and characters are so bland and color-by-numbers that it's hard to care about this juvenile adventure romp‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
23% The Bye Bye Man (2017) Despite any titular trepidation, there is fun to be had and even some cultural relevancy if you decide to say hi to The Bye Bye Man.‐ Los Angeles Times

B+ 90% Ma (2017) If you're willing to go along on a silent, experimental, dance-based journey of a mother in the desert, Ma is well worth the ride.‐ indieWire
