0.5/4 18% The House (2017) The House is essentially a one-joke premise, stretched well past its breaking point and leaving a lot of funny people looking embarrassed and regretful.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 85% Okja (2017) Okja is admirable when it is trying to be a pure fable or a sweet story. It crumbles to varying degrees when it tries to do more.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 77% The Exception (The Kaiser's Last Kiss) (2017) [O]ne wonders if the spy would serve as the more fitting protagonist here, capable of revealing the truth of history while the story still fiddles with some of the facts.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

1.5/4 44% The Bad Batch (2017) [T]his is a movie that's mostly about attitude -- ultimately hollow, while being apathetic about everything it shows and anything it could be saying.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 50% Family Life (Vida de Familia) (2017) For all of the work that the filmmakers do to help us understand Martín's motives for the deception (not to mention Becker, whose performance is quite good), there's an important piece missing.‐ RogerEbert.com

1.5/4 64% Dean (2017) Dean is yet another examination of grief that believes it's too cool to be honest about the subject.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2.5/4 49% Churchill (2017) This is a transformative performance in a movie that, unfortunately, doesn't come close to matching it.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

3/4 92% Wonder Woman (2017) This film makes the character one of the more engaging, empowered, and empowering of the recent crop of super-powered heroes. It's a pretty good movie, too.‐ Mark Reviews Movies

2/4 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) For as much talking as these characters do about it, the magical thingamajig might as well be the movie's central character.‐ Mark Reviews Movies
