2.5/4 76% 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

3.5/4 79% 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

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

2/4 40% 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

1.5/4 43% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) Look, XXX: Return of Xander Cage is bad. Is it too much to ask that the filmmakers simply acknowledge and embrace how bad it is?‐ Mark Reviews Movies
