3/4 57% Breathe (2017) Thirty minutes in, we're pretty sure we know how the movie is going to turn out - even if we're unfamiliar with Robin's remarkable journey and his lasting impact. That doesn't mean Breathe isn't worth seeing.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 95% Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017) Vince Vaughn is so intimidating in "Brawl in Cell Block 99," even the back of his head seems to be glaring at us and asking, "Do we have a problem here?"‐ Chicago Sun-Times

2.5/4 31% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) This is a paint-by-numbers procedural that expects the audience to know the history of Watergate, hits the ground running-but then feels more like a steady jog through the past than a fast-paced thriller.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

4/4 93% Spielberg (2017) This is a fitting and thorough tribute to a director whose work has left an enormous footprint on the popular culture.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 91% Our Souls at Night (2017) These are good people, and these are great actors portraying these good people, and if you not rooting for Louis and Addie to find comfort and love and peace with one another in their last years, then I just don't know what to tell you.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

1/4 19% Woodshock (2017) The directors of Woodshock are Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sibling founders of the Rodarte brand. They clearly have an eye for fashion. As filmmakers, they clearly have an eye for fashion.‐ Richard Roeper.com

3.5/4 87% American Made (2017) Mostly, there's Cruise, who at 55 looks a decade and a half younger, and can still fill a cockpit with star power some 30 years after Top Gun.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

2/4 81% Brad's Status (2017) We knew this guy was a forgettable jerk not worth our time five minutes into this movie.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 96% Stronger (2017) What makes Stronger stand out is the pitch-perfect feel for the dynamic of a loud and constantly bickering and dysfunctional but fiercely loyal and loving extended family.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

2/4 69% mother! (2017) Lawrence pouts and screams and cries with great gusto. Her eyes dart about with mad fear at the lunatics who have invaded her house. It's a big performance, but not a GREAT big performance.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 88% First They Killed My Father (2017) This is an accomplished and moving and solid drama from a director who seems on the verge of giving us a great movie sometime soon.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 76% The Limehouse Golem (2017) ... this nasty little Victorian London horror film has more than a few blood-soaked charms of its own.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

4/4 85% It (2017) When a film of this magnitude has so many young characters front and center in the lead roles, so much depends on the casting -- and in this case, there's not a single misstep.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

1/4 0% The Layover (2017) William H. Macy is great. William H. Macy knows funny. How could William H. Macy direct such an unholy mess?‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 37% Leap! (2017) The anachronistic pop songs actually work quite nicely with the scenes of classical dancing, and will most likely help hold the attention of the little ones.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 91% Marjorie Prime (2017) The exchanges feel slightly redundant at times. The stagey origins of the material surface occasionally. Minor bumps, though, in a unique psychological journey.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 77% Dave Made a Maze (2017) If you're looking for something different - and mean it when you say so - Dave Made a Maze is a joy.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

1.5/4 38% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) There's nothing and no one to like in The Hitman's Bodyguard. This is one loud, generic, forgettable late summer action flick.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 83% Patti Cake$ (2017) Patti Cake$ belongs to writer-director Jasper, who makes good use of his New Jersey upbringing and his music-video background to create a memorable feature debut - and to Danielle Macdonald.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

4/4 87% Wind River (2017) For all the character studies and moments of reflection and lament, Wind River never loses its identity as a gritty thriller. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times

2/4 49% The Glass Castle (2017) A film that presents overwhelming evidence of Rex and Rose Mary as appalling human beings for 90 percent of the journey, and then asks us to give them a break? No sale.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 99% Whose Streets? (2017) It's likely not even the most well-intentioned and determined news crews could gain the kind of access and give us the unfiltered viewpoints provided by the smart-phone visuals and home video camera footage shot by residents of Ferguson.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 87% Whitney: Can I Be Me (2017) Whitney: 'Can I Be Me is a nearly joyless and melancholy piece of work. Because we know how it ends.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 78% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Directed in disjointed and sometimes unfocused fashion by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is nonetheless worth a viewing.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

2.5/4 35% Kidnap (2017) Even clocking in with a running time short of 90 minutes, the movie spins its wheels (in more ways than one) and repeats itself to the point of becoming ridiculous.‐ Chicago Sun-Times
