1.5/4 No Score Yet Ghost House (2017) Ghost House is very excited to show you a foreign land. It's also excited to display some horrific visuals. What it's not very interested in, though, is telling a worthwhile story.‐ Aisle Seat

1.5/4 58% England Is Mine (2017) If you're going to make a movie about one of the greatest singer/lyricists of all time but you can't get the rights to their story or any of their music, don't even bother.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 93% Logan Lucky (2017) The heist is fun, but the detailed inside look at the workings of a speedway really makes Logan Lucky special.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 100% California Typewriter (2017) It's perfectly understandable if your initial reaction to a documentary about typewriters is "pass," but don't write the film off so fast. There's more substance here than you'd anticipate.‐ Aisle Seat

2.5/4 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) The Hitman's Bodyguard is one of those right-down-the-middle movies. It's neither great nor terrible.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 71% Dave Made a Maze (2017) Original and entertaining. The movie occasionally feels like an entry in the Saw franchise as directed by Michel Gondry.‐ Aisle Seat

2/4 44% Everything, Everything (2017) Excellent lead actress Amandla Stenberg is let down by an uneven tone and a flawed story.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 49% The Glass Castle (2017) Deeply touching. The Glass Castle mostly finds just the right note [for the material], feeling very authentic in both the lighter and the darker moments. ‐ Aisle Seat

1.5/4 16% The Dark Tower (2017) If you're attempting to create a series based on a complex mythology, omitting key details of that mythology is a pretty big step in the wrong direction.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 82% Detroit (2017) A searing look at the impact of racial injustice.‐ Aisle Seat

0.5/4 36% Kidnap (2017) Running a scant 75 minutes before the end credits roll, it's almost as though the movie knows it's garbage and tries to show the audience some semblance of mercy by getting itself over with as quickly as possible.‐ Aisle Seat

1/4 60% DRIB (2017) The set-up is really fascinating. Unfortunately, once you get past it, everything goes downhill quickly.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 93% Tragedy Girls (2017) This impressively ballsy, stingingly funny horror-comedy grabs you by the throat in such a way that you never want it to let go.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 75% Atomic Blonde (2017) Atomic Blonde is appealingly different, which, storytelling issues aside, makes it a pleasure to immerse yourself in.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 93% Dunkirk (2017) Christopher Nolan steps in a new direction this time, delivering a picture that engages the intellect and the senses, if not exactly the heart.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 79% Killing Ground (2017) If you can handle hardcore reality-based horror, buckle up and prepare for a ride that will leave you shaken.‐ Aisle Seat

4/4 98% The Big Sick (2017) The Big Sick is one of the best romantic comedies of our time. A work of 100% sincerity.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Matt Reeves' film engages the mind and the senses in equal measure, resulting in top notch entertainment.‐ Aisle Seat

2.5/4 14% Battle Scars (2017) Battle Scars tells two stories concurrently. One is really good, the other incredibly weak. The problem is that the second story continually intrudes upon the first one.‐ Aisle Seat

1.5/4 17% Blind (2017) Were it not for three well-known lead actors, this film probably would have turned up on the Lifetime channel instead of in theaters.‐ Aisle Seat

3.5/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Spider-Man: Homecoming isn't really a Spider-Man movie. It's a Peter Parker movie, and that turns out to be an incredibly good thing.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 61% Despicable Me 3 (2017) You'd think franchise fatigue might start to set in by now. Nope. The movie is just as satisfying as its predecessors.‐ Aisle Seat

4/4 94% Baby Driver (2017) There are great movies you admire, and then there are great movies you admire that also make you deliriously happy. Baby Driver is the latter.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 76% The Little Hours (2017) The Little Hours is one wild and crazy movie. Hysterically funny, plain and simple.‐ Aisle Seat

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

3.5/4 78% The Hero (2017) In a long, distinguished career full of great performances, Sam Elliott gives one of his best here.‐ Aisle Seat

3/4 54% 47 Meters Down (2017) This nifty little B-movie is surprisingly satisfying.‐ 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 88% 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 68% 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 87% 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 16% 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 86% 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 75% 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 35% 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 82% 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 17% 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 90% A Dark Song (2017) One of the most unsettling horror movies of recent years. Scary and poignant.‐ Aisle Seat

1/4 25% 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
