Rating Title/Year Author
Dunkirk (2017) Luke Y. Thompson ...there are maybe ten minutes in the middle where I felt my attention waning-and yet I'd hate to discourage Nolan from trying to take this approach more often. EDIT

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Luke Y. Thompson ...we're not left with the fear of looming apocalypse or Thanos/Darkseid waiting in the wings, but rather a sense that our best selves can overcome obstacles both personal and planet-threatening. EDIT

War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Luke Y. Thompson If ape-on-human action is all you crave, this War delivers, but by comparison to its ancestors, and even Fox's own Logan this year, it comes up shallow EDIT

Cars 3 (2017) Luke Y. Thompson On the whole, though, Cars 3 feels like a typical sports movie: not meant for me, but amusing enough to keep me from falling asleep. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2017
The Mummy (2017) Luke Y. Thompson ...there are quite a few laughs to be had, some of which are definitely intentional. EDIT

Wonder Woman (2017) Luke Y. Thompson Every DC Universe movie so far has juggled themes of love versus duty...But Wonder Woman is the first to suggest that love IS duty; if you love at all, you must fight to preserve that in the world. EDIT

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Luke Y. Thompson When the opening sequence of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was done, I had a huge smile on my face. I wish I could tell you it lasted. EDIT

Alien: Covenant (2017) Luke Y. Thompson Like Alien 3, Covenant has plenty to interest, but not a whole lot to scare. EDIT

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Luke Y. Thompson Overall, it feels like spending time with old friends again, and the use of depth and size contrasts in the 3D is spectacular, if a lot to take in at times. EDIT

The Fate of the Furious (2017) Luke Y. Thompson New-to-franchise director F. Gary Gray mostly maintains a look we've come to expect: the car chases are kinetic and exciting, while the out-of-vehicle action sequences are chopped and edited to hell EDIT

Kong: Skull Island (2017) Luke Y. Thompson Your inner child, if you still have one, should love it. Emphasis on the "if." EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2017
Beauty and the Beast (2017) Luke Y. Thompson I supposed to be rooting for Gaston? EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2017
Logan (2017) Luke Y. Thompson Here, at last, was a Wolverine story that felt like the comics I remembered. And not just that: it's a comic-book superhero movie that genuinely pushes the form forward EDIT
