58% Buena Vista Social Club: Adios (2017) Despite any shackles, social or otherwise, music will always serve as a mode of liberation, an expression of love, and Buena Vista Social Club: Adios passionately asserts that idea.‐ Los Angeles Times

32% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) There are no new treasures to be found in this installment, which is dragged down by the anchor of a prescribed franchise blueprint.‐ Los Angeles Times

1.5/4 19% Baywatch (2017) This bombastic reboot, directed incompetently by Seth Gordon, is held together with nothing more than hopes, dreams and neoprene, and inevitably, all of those systems fail. ‐ Tribune News Service

86% Sacred (2017) Abstract, yet moving... The film articulates a concept of universal humanity. No matter the religion or circumstances, we all have the same desires for peace and connection throughout life.‐ Los Angeles Times

33% The Last Shaman (2017) a fascinating and sometimes terrifying introduction to ayahuasca.‐ Los Angeles Times

18% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) A dirge of unfunny scatological material, techno-anxiety and child endangerment masquerading as familial bonding. ‐ Los Angeles Times

97% The Survivalist (2017) eerie and masterful ... as riveting as it is morally confounding.‐ Los Angeles Times

46% Everything, Everything (2017) Stenberg's relaxed charisma carries what is a rather preposterous premise... Aside from its leading lady, what "Everything, Everything" has going for it is its light, fantastical aesthetic and unexpected sense of buoyancy. ‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/5 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) This desire for procreation and preservation of the self - human, alien or artificial - is what motivates every being in the Alien universe, and in Covenant, Scott sets up a thrilling thunderdome in which we can watch this bloody battle unfold.‐ Winnipeg Free Press

3/4 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) "Covenant" rips through plot points and action set pieces with the speed of a xenomorph ripping through flesh. The story is a whirlwind smash-and-grab.‐ Tribune News Service

1/4 18% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) A dirge of unfunny scatological material, techno-anxiety and child endangerment masquerading as familial bonding. ‐ Tribune News Service

87% The Lovers (2017) A cautionary tale that never passes judgment, an exploration of the way that love can be a many-splendored thing, with many people, some of them twice.‐ Tribune News Service

2.5/4 51% The Dinner (2017) Although Moverman's cinematic style can be physically uncomfortable to experience, it's impossible to turn away from the quartet of incredible performances. ‐ Tribune News Service

15% The Circle (2017) Floats many intriguing ideas, then lets them drop with a thud. ‐ Tribune News Service

55% Lowriders (2017) Excels in its depiction of the Los Angeles of 2017... a fascinating cultural exposure, but lacks a truly impactful story. ‐ Tribune News Service

59% Paris Can Wait (Bonjour Anne) (2017) Coppola deftly shifts the focus to the woman behind the great man and asks who she is, how she understands the world, what she cares about. It's fully her story and a rare perspective‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
1/4 37% Snatched (2017) Feels like a rough sketch of a movie rather than a fleshed-out joke-dense script. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
2/4 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Unlike any other medieval warfare and sorcery movie ever committed to film, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's good. This King Arthur superhero origin story is strange, invigorating, often outright bad, confusing, and totally wild.‐ Tribune News Service

83% Tomorrow Ever After (2017) Ultimately, Tomorrow Ever After, contains a hopeful message that somehow, the world just might end up a better place.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted May 9, 2017
No Score Yet Erasing Eden (2016) [It] makes vague gestures toward the self-empowerment found in personal choice, but those morals are lost in the downright disturbing and degrading gauntlet Eden has to walk through to find herself.‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/4 88% The Lost City of Z (2017) Miller's riveting, heartfelt portrayal etches a delicate picture underneath the colorful, wild portrait of Fawcett - of the losses suffered at home in service of greater ambitions and fantastical dreams.‐ Tribune News Service

1/4 67% Free Fire (2017) Without soul or wit, we're left with nothing but bad Halloween costumes and artillery. Nostalgia never felt so bad.‐ Tribune News Service

85% 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 48% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
2.5/4 26% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
67% Little Boxes (2017) "Little Boxes" offers tame social commentary in a pleasant package.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2017
45% 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 61% 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 46% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
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

52% 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

76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) It could have easily been titled "Apocalypse Kong" -- but it's surprisingly fun and fresh.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
3.5/4 79% 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
73% 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
76% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2017
2/4 21% The Shack (2017) If Octavia Spencer is God, then Lord, take me to church.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
4/4 99% Get Out (2017) Peele flips horror conventions on their head, and in doing so, flips our cultural perceptions.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
2.5 42% 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
