1.5/4 51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) If a white towel had been handy as I screened the punishingly long and dreadful Kingsman: The Golden Circle, I would have thrown it at the screen and made a wish: Please make it stop.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 93% 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

3/4 29% Rebel in the Rye (2017) With Rebel in the Rye, we get a solid, well-acted and basically standard biopic.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

2/4 68% 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 74% 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

1.5/4 0% Gun Shy (2017) It's loud and dumb and irritating and forgettable.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

2/4 31% Home Again (2017) It's ... hard not to feel a constant sense of disconnect from these characters and their so-called "crises."‐ 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

4/4 100% Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D (2017) It's on a par with the 3-D in most current films of the genre.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

4/4 93% Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) Even though this movie was made nearly 30 years ago, almost nothing about it feels dated. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 46% Bushwick (2017) What could have been a great B-movie winds up being merely solid.‐ 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 89% 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 78% 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

2.5/4 91% Good Time (2017) Whatever the intentions of the filmmakers, Good Time is a promising but flawed final product.‐ Richard Roeper.com

3.5/4 85% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Director and co-writer Matt Spicer displays just the right touch as the story gets crazier. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times

1.5/4 40% 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

3.5/4 93% Logan Lucky (2017) Logan Lucky is great fun and one of the most purely entertaining movies of the year.‐ 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 69% Pilgrimage (2017) This is one rough-and-tumble medieval Irish religious adventure, my friends.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 79% Brigsby Bear (2017) What a strange and lovely road we travel with Brigsby Bear.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

1/4 16% The Dark Tower (2017) A great actor giving a terrible performance as the lead villain is but one of the many, many, MANY unfortunate elements in The Dark Tower.‐ 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 38% 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

3/4 93% SCORE: A Film Music Documentary (2017) Score: A Film Music Documentary is a celebration of the artists who create the musical heartbeat of the movies we love‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 74% Landline (2017) Landline is a very funny film about people dealing with very serious situations. Better the Jacobs family than us.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

1.5/4 5% The Last Face (2017) The Last Face spends so much time on the on-again, off-again romance between Bardem's Miguel and Theron's Wren, the African victims are all but nameless and faceless backdrops.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 77% Atomic Blonde (2017) The visuals in Atomic Blonde pop right off the screen. Leitch periodically zooms in for tight close-ups of the stunning Theron, who conveys a world of emotions with a subtle movement of the eyes.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 15% First Kill (2017) Get the 8-ounce Pinot Noir, settle in and have some mindless fun.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 89% Girls Trip (2017) Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah are as reliable as ever onscreen. And Regina Hall gives one of her best performances as Ryan, who keeps on telling everyone you can "have it all" even as her own marriage tells a different story.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

1.5/4 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) [A] bizarre and bloated and clunky pop sci-fi epic.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

4/4 92% Dunkirk (2017) Nolan has crafted a tight, gripping, deeply involving and unforgettable film that ranks about the best war movies of the decade.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 16% Blind (2017) Baldwin and Moore generate genuine heat and chemistry together, even in some ridiculous moments.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

2/4 50% Hickok (2017) My favorite performance in the film comes from Bruce Dern, enthusiastically loopy as the booze-soaked town doctor. You can rarely accuse Bruce Dern of phoning it in.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Serkis is brilliant and memorable and sometimes absolutely heartbreaking as Caesar. The supporting players excel, with each getting a moment or two in the sun.‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2017
3/4 90% A Ghost Story (2017) The premise and the framework of the story and the photography are much more memorable than the performances, and that feels mostly by design.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 77% The Little Hours (2017) True, The Little Hours is essentially a one-joke comedy - but most of the jokes under the umbrellas of that one joke are pretty damn, I mean darn, funny.‐ Richard Roeper.com

3.5/4 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is breezy fun.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

4/4 98% The Big Sick (2017) All the best romantic comedies get even better upon repeat viewings. I'm fully confident The Big Sick will pass that test the next time I see it, which will be very soon.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

1/4 17% The House (2017) There's more character development (and more believable plot turns) in a typical "Saturday Night Live" sketch.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 86% Okja (2017) Okja is an uneven but never complacent mix of fantastic fairy tale; social satire; heavy-handed commentary on corporate greed and our consumer-crazed culture, and bizarro action film.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 78% The Beguiled (2017) Of course, something's gotta give, and when it does, The Beguiled reminds us we haven't been watching a fairy tale all this time -- we've been watching a very fractured fairy tale.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

4/4 93% Baby Driver (2017) Edgar Wright's Baby Driver is one of the most entertaining thrill rides of this year, this decade.‐ Chicago Sun-Times
