1.5/4 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) The studio and filmmakers have vomited up a loud, unfocused, utterly nonsensical Transformers mess.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 48% Rough Night (2017) Rough Night has its flaws, but it's funny enough to generally overcome them, and the chance to see so many wonderful actresses displaying their comedic skills is a pleasure.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 87% It Comes At Night (2017) Trey Edward Shults. Make sure you remember that name. Burn it into your brain. It Comes at Night solidifies what a major talent he is.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 66% The Journey (2017) A riveting and even inspiring look at two prominent adversaries who came together to do what was right. Magnificently accomplished performances from Spall and Meaney.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 89% Lost in Paris (Paris pieds nus) (2017) A real charmer. The film serves as a fine modern-day example of slapstick comedy.‐ Aisle Seat

2.5/4 45% Awakening the Zodiac (2017) While admittedly atmospheric and stylishly made, the picture does have some problems generating the kind of chills it clearly wants to elicit.‐ Aisle Seat

1/4 15% The Mummy (2017) The Mummy is the perfect movie if you love mindless big-budget special effects extravaganzas but absolutely hate having fun.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 85% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie perfectly captures the goofy spirit of its source material. Plus, it has a theme song performed by Weird Al, so how can it go wrong?‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 92% Wonder Woman (2017) The beautiful message of Wonder Woman is that attributes commonly associated with women - compassion, empathy, and protectiveness - are the most awesome superpowers of all.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 44% Vincent N Roxxy (2017) The magic of Vincent N Roxxy comes from the performances. If there was any justice in the movie world, Zoe Kravitz's work here would propel her onto the A-list.‐ Aisle Seat

1.5/4 19% Baywatch (2017) This misguided comedy has zero perspective on the low-grade titillation that made the series weirdly popular.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 74% Wakefield (2017) Wakefield is a must-see for fans of Bryan Cranston.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) It's thrilling when a science-fiction story aims this high. The series is on solid ground with Alien: Covenant. ‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 63% Ben (1972) Ben is to Willard what Aliens is to Alien.‐ Aisle Seat

2/4 36% Snatched (2017) When Snatched lands a joke, which it does from time to time, it garners big laughs. The movie just isn't consistently funny, despite some bright spots.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5 100% Elián (2017) A vital and spellbinding documentary that dissects a fascinating moment in American history.‐ Aisle Seat

2/4 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Director Guy Ritchie is so intent on making his version Not Your Father's King Arthur that he loses all the things that are inherently interesting about the legend to begin with.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 81% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 takes everything that worked so well the first time around and amplifies it, establishing itself as one of the most satisfying sequels of recent years.‐ Film Racket

2/4 15% The Circle (2017) The movie is urging us to be weary of something we already know to be weary of - a fact that keeps it from becoming as provocative as it wants to be.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 89% A Dark Song (2017) One of the most unsettling horror movies of recent years. Scary and poignant.‐ Aisle Seat

1/4 26% Unforgettable (2017) Unforgettable feels like it time-warped in from 1992. It easily would have been one of the worst pictures of that year, and it's definitely one of the worst of this year, too.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 44% Tales From the Hood (1995) A landmark genre picture. ‐ Aisle Seat

2/4 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) This series jumped the shark a long time ago. The Fate of the Furious jumps several sharks. ‐ Aisle Seat
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
3/4 37% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) The decision to do Smurfs: The Lost Village without any live-action sequences was a smart one. Solely utilizing computer animation feels like a much better fit for the material.‐ Aisle Seat

1.5/4 46% Going in Style (2017) Going in Style is a textbook example of how not to make a heist movie. It's stunning how the film gets even the most basic steps wrong.‐ Aisle Seat
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
3.5/4 79% The Case for Christ (2017) As good a faith-based film as has yet been made. It's designed to appeal to Christian audiences, but well-done enough to have mainstream appeal, too.‐ Aisle Seat

2/4 45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) A sci-fi action/adventure with Scarlett Johansson and big-budget effects ought to be a lot more fun than this.‐ Aisle Seat

1.5/4 No Score Yet Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976) Tries to cram in so many old-Hollywood ideas that it causes the plot to lose focus.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 67% Life (2017) Yes, it's a ripoff of Alien. And that's okay because it's a darn good ripoff. ‐ Aisle Seat

1/4 47% Bokeh (2017) The half-baked philosophizing and predictable outcome make the picture an endurance test for your patience.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 53% The Belko Experiment (2017) if you have an appreciation for horror-thrillers that push boundaries, The Belko Experiment is an admirably messed-up work of nihilism.‐ Aisle Seat
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
3/4 81% Mean Dreams (2017) Mean Dreams may not be particularly original, but with an effectively somber atmosphere and first-rate performances, it's a sufficiently entertaining little thriller.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 92% The Devil's Candy (2017) Indie horror doesn't get much more stylish or creepy than The Devil's Candy.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 93% Logan (2017) In the way it explores the inescapable nature of violence and its long-term effects, Logan is the Unforgiven of superhero cinema. ‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 100% The Last Laugh (2017) A provocative, probing - and yes, often funny - look at the role humor plays in coming to terms with the darkest, most troubling events mankind faces.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 74% Headshot (2017) For anyone in search of an action extravaganza with a nice touch of humanity on the side, this is a can't-miss movie.‐ Aisle Seat

1.5/4 No Score Yet Dead Time Stories (1986) The twisted tales range from "pretty bad" to "mediocre."‐ Aisle Seat
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2017
3.5/4 99% Get Out (2017) One of the boldest, most audacious major studio movies to come along in quite some time. From the opening titles to the end credits, Get Out holds you in its grasp.‐ Aisle Seat
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
3/4 100% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) A heartfelt, poignant movie, and further proof that animation is a viable means with which to tell complex human stories.‐ Aisle Seat

2.5/4 27% Fist Fight (2017) Fist Fight is a mixed bag. The film is amusing without ever becoming the side-splitter it obviously wants to be.‐ Aisle Seat

1.5/4 9% King Solomon's Mines (1985) King Solomon's Mines is frequently laughable. Nothing about the film is convincingly done. ‐ Aisle Seat

4/4 88% Land of Mine (Under Sandet) (2017) Land of Mine is absolutely riveting from start to finish, both on a thematic and a visceral level. It tenses your muscles and engages your mind simultaneously.‐ Aisle Seat
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
2.5/4 35% The Great Wall (2017) While the monster battles are undeniably entertaining, The Great Wall comes to a screeching halt whenever it focuses on the people. The characters are frustratingly paper-thin, as is the plot. ‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Regardless of your age, gender, or other defining characteristics, if you are even remotely interested in Batman, you can have a grand old time at this funny, charming picture.‐ Aisle Seat
