1.5/5 8% Fallen (2017) It didn't take long for Twilight to fall into self-parody and we've seen the YA brand evolve as a result, with diminishing results. Apparently somebody forgot to send Fallen the memo. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3/5 42% Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) That Goon: Last of the Enforcers aspires to be about more than hockey when it absolutely doesn't have to is why it's a shot that hits the back of the net. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

1/5 30% I Do... Until I Don't (2017) I Do...Until I Don't isn't worthy of a long-term relationship or a brief fling; it's a home wrecker of a comedy best to be avoided. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3/5 83% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) ...a topsy-turvy actioner that should dazzle fans of Lady Vengeance and Hardcore Henry. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3.5/5 43% Bushwick (2017) Bushwick plays like Red Dawn by way of John Carpenter, and deserves to sit pretty high up in the sub-genre of paramilitary invasion flicks. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3.5/5 74% Shot Caller (2017) The particulars are nothing we haven't seen before, but it's the deep characterization of Waldau's character that sets Shot Caller apart.‐ Punch Drunk Critics

4/5 88% Good Time (2017) It's a genuine thrill, and a big part of it is that the Safdies, and Pattinson, never soften up on Connie's rough edges. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

4/5 93% Logan Lucky (2017) Some will write off Logan Lucky as one of Soderbergh's most frivolous efforts, but that would be a mistake. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3.5/5 38% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) I imagine the majority of filming The Hitman's Bodyguard was Reynolds and Jackson bouncing snark off of one another like a freshly-tossed smoke grenade. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3/5 30% The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) It's a film that takes itself a little too seriously in an effort to be intellectual, but you'll enjoy it more if you don't. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3/5 49% The Glass Castle (2017) Even if The Glass Castle isn't as sturdy as it should be, it's a strong effort that can survive a few cracks. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

2/5 0% Armed Response (2017) The only real mystery is if Snipes will rebound from this into better projects, or if movies this cheap and uninspiring will be his new normal. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

2.5/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) Director Nikolaj Arcel's version of King's magnum opus is slight, a skin 'n bones adaptation that teases a greater mythology but depicts little of it. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3.5/5 82% Detroit (2017) While it takes place in 1967 during the racially-charged 12th Street Riots, the prejudice, injustice, and police violence could be ripped from the headlines today. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

2.5/5 50% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Valerian is like spending two hours in the Mos Eisley cantina while all of the TVs are set to episodes of Moonlighting. And you're high on whatever the drug du jour is on Tatooine. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

4.5/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) ...the music is something you feel. Music connects every scene, connects every character, every action flows from Wright's eclectic mix of tracks, all special in their own way. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3.5/5 78% The Beguiled (2017) Coppola's version of The Beguiled is more expertly directed and refined, until this cultured drama sheds its skin and reveals the nutty horror underneath. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3/5 89% Maudie (2017) While Maudie is a film to be admired, and certainly Hawkins' performance is beautiful and heartbreaking, a richer portrait of Maud Lewis is still waiting to be painted. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

2.5/5 12% Kill Switch (2017) The action level is never quite as high as it should be to justify the first-person view, and so it feels too often like we're watching somebody play an RPG, which is boring as Hell. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

1.5/5 23% Once Upon a Time in Venice (2017) This is the first time we've had to endure the sight of a skateboarding, buck naked Bruce Willis. It didn't need to happen, but it did and now it can't be unseen.‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3/5 89% It Comes At Night (2017) But it's the depiction of the loneliness and resignation in the surviving few that resounds the loudest, even when Shults's now-trademark minimalism becomes a hurdle he can't overcome.‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2017
4/5 16% The Mummy (2017) ...a surprisingly fun, thrilling, and adventurous film that takes most of its cues from Indiana Jones than the horrors of a bygone era. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
3/5 73% Berlin Syndrome (2017) ...it's a deep look inside the minds of the predator and his prey that the big screen rarely affords.‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3/5 84% Megan Leavey (2017) It's impossible not to think of Megan and Rex as a duo, as soldiers-in-arms on equal footing with one another. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3.5/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Wonder Woman more than shoulders the weight of our expectations, and dazzles us with brilliant kick-ass action and *shocker* heart that her male counterparts couldn't hope to match.‐ Punch Drunk Critics

2/5 54% War Machine (2017) There's satire here, or a lazy attempt at it, but the targets are scattershot and the jokes not particularly insightful or funny. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3.5/5 18% Baywatch (2017) Yeah, Baywatch is stupid, and crude, and full of endless amounts of cheesecake, but it's also exactly the kind of movie the summer season is made for. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics

3/5 45% Paris Can Wait (Bonjour Anne) (2017) Diane Lane, back in her "middle-aged journey of discovery" comfort zone, is by far the most scrumptious, delightful part of this Euro-trip. ‐ Punch Drunk Critics
