Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 86% Marshall (2017) For a film simply called "Marshall," you do expect to get a wider slice of his life, which is relegated to onscreen text. In fact, he ultimately becomes an ensemble player in his own eponymous film.‐ Tribune News Service

58% The Foreigner (2017) Feels as if a writer tossed a few darts at a board labeled with aging action stars and various terrorist groups to construct a script. Jackie Chan vs. the Irish Republican Army? That could work. ‐ Los Angeles Times

4/4 88% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) In "Professor Marston and the Wonder Women," you'll discover the surprising psychology behind Wonder Woman, and perhaps a newfound appreciation for her powers to crumble social norms with sensuality. Truly, it is a wonder of a movie.‐ Tribune News Service

87% American Made (2017) It skitters and jumps, shivers and boot-scoots, never, ever sitting still. You could say it's like "Blow," on well, blow. But there's a breezy sunniness to this film, which looks like a faded snapshot reclaimed from an '80s photo album.‐ Tribune News Service

50% My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) The film is done in the classic 2-D animation style and embraces the flat, colorful, Saturday-morning cartoon look and feel.‐ Los Angeles Times

43% The Mountain Between Us (2017) The romantic fantasy tendencies hijack this otherwise interesting unconventional love story in order to become a sort of bizarre Idris Elba fan fiction.‐ Tribune News Service

88% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) A meditative and moving film, sumptuously photographed by legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins in the finest and most astonishing work of his career.‐ Tribune News Service

60% Elizabeth Blue (2017) There are times when "Elizabeth Blue" drifts into "edu-tainment" territory, though the intent to unflinchingly reveal the struggle of mental illness is sincere.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
100% Unrest (2017) It's a film that's remarkably intimate, deeply edifying and a stirring call to action.‐ Los Angeles Times

91% Our Souls at Night (2017) Those who stop to savor it could find themselves richly rewarded in witnessing this pair together again on screen.‐ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

17% Friend Request (2017) So gloriously dumb that it is surprisingly a whole lot of fun.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
2.5/4 81% Brad's Status (2017) Some of [Ben] Stiller's best performances have been in roles where he inhabits a kind, gentle neuroticism, uncomfortable in his own skin but never wanting to make anyone else too uncomfortable. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
1/4 50% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) A truly cynical, painfully retrograde pastiche of meaningless pop nostalgia wrapped around a nonsensical plot, sprinkled with a dusting of repulsive sexism. Fun.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
100% In Search of Fellini (2017) The plot makes not a lick of sense, but the imagery is striking, and the adoration of Fellini's films comes through loud and clear.‐ Los Angeles Times

68% mother! (2017) What makes mother! brilliant is that it is open enough to read and project your own experiences onto it, which makes it deeply personal and universal.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 85% It (2017) It's such a great performance that you wish Muschietti had eased up on the CGI and just let Skarsgård do the talking.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
1/4 36% Jackals (2017) "Jackals" is a bit of style, almost no substance, and so scanty on the scares it's not worth the price of admission.‐ Tribune News Service

3/4 26% Unlocked (2017) It would be a welcome treat to watch the Alice Racine chronicles, as she travels around Europe taking out terrorist cells with her combination of interrogation and combat skills.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
3/4 72% Viceroy's House (2017) There's something pleasantly old-fashioned about "Viceroy's House." It feels like a Merchant Ivory period piece posing cultural questions within a safely cushioned environment. There are no guessing games, but also very little subtext.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
3/4 30% Home Again (2017) This world doesn't quite exist, but it's an exceedingly pleasant place to escape to for a couple hours. Meyers-Shyer may have gotten it from her mama, but the point of view is all hers.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2017
93% All Saints (2017) All Saints is rather fascinating in its relationship to faith and religion. It's a film not so much about scripture as it is about community.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
37% Leap! (2017) So many haphazard elements to "Leap!" that it never comes together. ‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
100% Served Like a Girl (2017) A truly inspirational, emotional and profoundly moving film.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
80% Unleashed (2017) Works because of the collective commitment to the magical realism on-screen. Chatwin and Howey are the most valuable players, giving truly inspired physical performances.‐ Los Angeles Times

4/4 82% Beach Rats (2017) Riveting and deeply compelling with the one-two punch of Dickinson's astonishing performance and Hittman's direction.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2017
3.5/4 83% Patti Cake$ (2017) a rousing and triumphant tale of freedom, creative expression, self-discovery, finding your voice -- and actually being heard. Imagine that. ‐ Tribune News Service

59% Lemon (2017) Bravo and Gelman find a transcendent absurdity in the mundane that's awkwardly enchanting. It's more tart than sweet, but deliciously weird nonetheless.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
3/4 93% Logan Lucky (2017) So warmheartedly enthusiastic, it's hard not to get swept away with this group of not-so-average Joes.‐ Tribune News Service

1.5/4 38% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Already feels like you're half-watching it on TNT on a Saturday afternoon.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2017
3/4 49% The Glass Castle (2017) Due to the herculean task of adaptation, "The Glass Castle" lacks the emotional potency of Cretton's earlier work and the unflinching detail of Walls' memoir.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
69% Pilgrimage (2017) For all its bloody and violent genre trappings, "Pilgrimage" is a gorgeously shot film that carefully renders the details of this fascinating historical period.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
74% Landline (2017) "Landline," at times, feels a bit inert, that it's coasting on the novelty of '90s nostalgia without justifying that choice, and allowing those references to stand in for actual propulsive storytelling and jokes.‐ Tribune News Service

10% The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (2017) A searing indictment of capitalistic government corruption‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/4 69% Annabelle: Creation (2017) In tangling with this group of feisty girls, Annabelle has become a true horror icon.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Aug 10, 2017
97% Columbus (2017) Almost startling in how assured it is, synthesizing beautiful, controlled images with story and character.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
86% The Untamed (La región salvaje) (2017) Escalante draws remarkable performances out of his cast of mostly newcomers in this film about the consequences of pleasure and the many meanings of flesh; where animal intelligence fills the void left by emotional disconnect.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2017
92% Some Freaks (2017) Some Freaks explores the way in which those who are teased and tortured for being different can turn on other outsiders, and the emotional trauma of that poisonous isolation.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
2/4 15% The Dark Tower (2017) Inconsistent, incoherent and often cheesy.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
1/4 35% Kidnap (2017) For all of Berry's breathless, screechy effort, "Kidnap" doesn't contain any suspense or tension.‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
10% The Emoji Movie (2017) There could be far worse ways to spend 86 minutes. But maybe, just maybe, it'd be the better choice to spend those 86 minutes outside, or reading a book, or talking face-to-face with another human being. Because The Emoji Movie could not be more meh.‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/4 78% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Surprising, vital, fascinating, edifying and absolutely crucial viewing for all of us who plan to continue inhabiting this planet for a while.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2017
2.5/4 76% Atomic Blonde (2017) After a brisk, efficient, uber-cool first hour, all New Wave tunes and sexy neon lighting, the second hour drags into dullness. ‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2017
2.5/4 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Richly, imaginatively rendered, deeply textured and almost overwhelming. This film drops you into an outer space world that knows no limits on space, time and dimensionality, and asks the viewer to go along for this deeply weird roller coaster ride.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2017
3/4 89% Girls Trip (2017) The girls of "Girls Trip" prove that women can be many things: powerful, naughty, gross, hilarious and sexy, while still lifting each other up.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2017
4/4 92% Dunkirk (2017) An instant war classic that finds its power in individual tales of heroism and renders them larger than life.‐ Tribune News Service

53% The Skyjacker's Tale (2017) Shocking and powerfully absorbing‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
17% Wish Upon (2017) A spooky teen story that's not particularly heavy on the scares and over-delivers on the unintentional giggles, ‐ Los Angeles Times
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
4/4 89% Lady Macbeth (2017) A haunting, angry vision of feminine rebellion.‐ Tribune News Service
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2017
93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) With emotionally resonant stories, thrilling heroics, and trenchant cultural observations, the "Apes" franchise is a rare breed of blockbuster, where filmmakers have been given the freedom to tell the stories they want, the way they want.‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 11, 2017
33% The Red Pill (2016) The Red Pill (the title is a reference to The Matrix) only exacerbates [the] divide with its uncritical, lopsided presentation and inability to craft a compelling argument regarding a topic this controversial.‐ Los Angeles Times
