2/4 24% Unforgettable (2017) Screenwriter Christina Hodson and first-time director Denise Di Novi are clearly trying to go against the grain here. It's just a shame that it still feels so routine.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3.5/4 97% Graduation (Bacalaureat) (2017) Mungiu appears to be assembling a simple morality tale ... but with the addition of every new complication and the revelation of each old lie, Graduation reaches deeper.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 88% The Lost City of Z (2017) Gray doesn't attempt to glorify Percy. There is, though, a thorough comprehension of the character's drive...‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 66% Free Fire (2017) The gunplay in Free Fire -- and there is a lot of it -- is akin to a particularly violent game of tag.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 87% Their Finest (2017) Director Lone Scherfig deftly captures the period, in terms of the filmmaking process and techniques ... as well as the look and atmosphere of dread in the background.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

1.5/4 15% Queen of the Desert (2017) The story is mostly formless and, as a result, rather disorienting.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 88% Frantz (2017) Ozon frames this story as a romance, but that is the filmmaker doing his own act of deception.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 56% Cezanne and I (Cézanne et Moi) (2017) This story of the turbulent bond between two geniuses ... cares far too much about the turbulence and not nearly enough about the genius.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 94% After the Storm (Umi yori mo mada fukaku) (2017) [W]riter/director Hirokazu Koreeda's deliberate, observant film [is] about a man who will not let go of the past, because he cannot see a future for himself or his life.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) This isn't the worst of these movies, but it might be the most generic of the bunch.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
3/4 78% Colossal (2017) It's a smart and funny film, but it's also an unexpectedly perceptive one.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
2.5/4 74% The Void (2017) It's tempting to grade The Void on a bit of a curve, if only because [directors] Gillespie and Kostanski do more than a competent job with the material's inherent obstacles. ‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
1/4 28% Salt and Fire (2017) Salt and Fire is a hodgepodge of inexplicable characters, half-considered ideas, and a rambling plot.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 18% Mine (2017) The second half sees survival, oddly, as a form of therapy.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
1.5/4 45% Going in Style (2017) Going in Style [is] a particularly inferior remake and pretty bad on its own.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

1/4 30% The Assignment (2017) [I]ts biggest sin isn't cultural, political, or anything of that nature. No, the biggest problem is that it's dull.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 39% Aftermath (2017) Strangely, reality gets in the way of a hardened, difficult story about loss and guilt in Aftermath.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 98% Your Name. (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2017) A gorgeous animated film from director Makoto Shinkai, Your Name is a sweet combination of naïve romantic sentimentality and thought-provoking science-fiction.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 64% Gifted (2017) In its quieter moments, the movie shows what it could have been.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 85% Mr. Gaga: A True Story of Love and Dance (2017) [Director Tomer] Heymann smartly lets the art speak for itself and for [Ohad] Naharin.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 46% Ghost in the Shell (2017) The city is a welcome distraction in Ghost in the Shell that almost, but not quite, justifies the movie's existence.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

1/4 53% The Boss Baby (2017) Look, 'weird' is fine ... Have the courage to see 'weird' through to the end, though. Do that at least.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 73% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2017) The film's ultimate horror is in complete isolation...‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
2/4 58% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) Angela Workman's screenplay is more concerned with the quantity of the story's details than the quality of a focused narrative.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
3/4 67% Life (2017) [I]f such a movie has to pick between the [humans and the monster], the monster might be the correct choice. That's the case with Life...‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 79% Dig Two Graves (2017) Dig Two Graves is bolstered quite a bit by its focus on atmosphere, as well as the two central performances, but it remains a journey toward the inevitable.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
1.5/4 40% Wilson (2017) [Wilson] grates in a way that is, at least, unique -- and uniquely irritating.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) The good feeling of reuniting with old friends is too powerful here.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 47% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) It's strange to find oneself actively rooting against the Power Rangers showing up in full battle gear in this movie...‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 73% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) [T]he movie's final, foggy revelations feel more like a trick than the truth.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 90% Raw (2017) The movie's allegorical aims are deep, but their impact is unfortunately slight...‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 81% Mean Dreams (2017) Mean Dreams starts with promise. It doesn't live up to that promise.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
2/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) [T]his is, ultimately, a pretty redundant effort that lacks the spirit, energy, and charm of its forebear.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
3.5/4 80% Personal Shopper (2017) What we get from Personal Shopper ... is a study of a character's doubt that makes us empathize with her dilemma, because we're left doubting everything we've seen.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
3/4 100% Uncertain (2017) If someone had invented a place like the city of Uncertain, Texas, for a work of fiction, it would beggar belief.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
3/4 100% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) The intrinsic cuteness of the style and surface -- not to mention the title -- of My Life as a Zucchini belies the film's broken, despondent heart.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
2/4 77% Kong: Skull Island (2017) This Kong is an imposing monster, to be sure, but as an innocent caught up in the dealings of the inhabitants of a world beyond his comprehension, he doesn't quite register.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

1.5/4 20% Table 19 (2017) A talented cast comes together for forced awkwardness of the social and comic varieties in Table 19.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
3/4 72% Headshot (2017) It's difficult to dub something this pervasively violent as 'fun,' but there's an undeniable feeling of appreciation for the ingenuity of the action.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
1/4 73% Catfight (2017) As a joke, Catfight is a punch line with a really shaky setup.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
3.5/4 92% Logan (2017) The film is, above all else, a refreshing change of pace from the usual, comic-book superhero fodder. It's melancholy and introspective...‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
3/4 66% Before I Fall (2017) Before I Fall is a teen-oriented drama that uses a metaphysical dilemma to tell a surprisingly compassionate and well-performed story.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 97% Kedi (2017) There's a sense of despair among the people of Istanbul that [director Ceyda] Torun captures, almost as if by accident.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
3.5/4 84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) It's [a zombie movie] that possesses clearly defined characters, cares about the ideas they both state and represent, and has a few vital things to say...‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
1.5/4 22% Collide (2017) Collide was probably a nice vacation for the cast and crew (and a decent tax write-off for other folks), and it shows.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 99% Get Out (2017) Writer/director Jordan Peele's Get Out is a daring and auspicious directorial debut.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
1.5/4 72% XX (2017) The end result is an unfortunate misfire, and since it's an anthology, it's a misfire multiple times over.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) Screenwriter Jason Haythe tries to pull off some narrative sleight of hand here, while [director Gore] Verbinski is telling us and showing us exactly where we should be looking.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
