While a bit of a slow-starter, when the dam bursts, it bursts, delivering a film that is both darkly comic and deadly serious -- and very weird. (That's a good thing.)

It is at turns charming but unsettling, amusing but poignant, care-free but thought-provoking. But the real story here is Brooklynn Prince, a 6-year-old star in the making.

1/5
After a promising start, it fritters away any emotional connection with its audience early on, becoming a cold, meandering and tiresome exercise.

Sometimes it's stupid-funny, but mostly it's just plain stupid. And sloppy. And that won't matter one bit to fans of Tyler Perry's films.

Marshall (2017)
Thanks largely to the interplay of Boseman and Gad, it works, and probably better than it should, with its blend of drama, humor and -- best of all -- fist-pumping triumph.

While it threatens at time to lose its focus, its performances -- and its blend of history and humor -- make it a very enjoyable, and recommendable, film.

Gook (2017)
Like "Clerks" with a conscience.

A surprisingly thoughtful and beautifully shot film that doubles as both a history of and a love letter to the humble typewriter.

Patti Cake$ (2017)
On paper, it's familiar stuff. In practice, though -- and with Danielle Macdonald in the lead role -- it becomes an altogether sweet and amiable triumph.

Good Time (2017)
An engaging journey to the dark side, thanks to Robert Pattinson's lead turn, which adds a layer of emotional resonance to what ends up an uncommonly intriguing crime drama.

Logan Lucky (2017)
A fun and unpretentious romp that benefits from smart pacing, likeable characters and a stick-it-to-the-man undercurrent that helps keep things moving along.

Kidnap (2017)
A tense and satisfying genre exercise, it shows that 1) there's something to be said for a film that delivers on its promises and 2) don't mess with Halle Berry.

Dunkirk (2017)
Even with its overly complicated structure and scarcity of emotion, it's no exaggeration to call it a technical masterpiece, offering a stunning look at a key moment in WWII.

Girls Trip (2017)

3/5
While working inside the rigid confines of the Marvel blueprint, it manages to work equally well as a superhero movie and a teen comedy.

The Beguiled (2017)

1/5
There's enough there to make young children and dullards laugh. But when all you've got comedically is the occasional flash of bare Minion booties, you've got problems.

Baby Driver (2017)
A subtly innovative blend of cars, guns, music and old-school cool, it's also one of those increasingly rare creatures in Hollywood: an undeniably original movie.

It shamelessly co-opts the Pixar aesthetic, but at least its working to imitate the best in the biz. The result: a sweet film with a reasonably satisfying emotional element.

Thank goodness for Shirley MacLaine. With anyone else in the lead role, this sweet but uneven indie would have likely buckled under the weight of its mounting contrivances.

Wilson (2017)
Wilson is about a man desperate to connect with people emotionally. It's ironic then, that director Craig Johnson's often amusing movie fails to do just that.

It's got a great ensemble cast. It's got eye-popping visual effects. It's got a blend of non-stop action and well-timed humor. In short, it's just plain fun.

Without a word of dialog, it says more than most animated films could ever hope to.
