Fist Fight (2017)
The sharpest thing here is how WB marketers hyped it as a real after-school slugfest. You remember the days: 'Hey, Jones and Tiny are fighting by the flagpole at 4 o'clock.' Otherwise, it's just another lame Ice Cube or Charlie Day comedy.

Somebody OK'd Gore Verbinski's flimsy shockfest and its idiot plot based on his success with the 'Pirates' films and perhaps his spooky 'Ring' remake. Alas, now will come a real cure for such generosity quicker than the movie's preposterous running time.

'Salesman' writer/director Asghar Farhadi once again fools us in oh so many ways in this dark and dreary thriller, with a nod to Arthur Miller. Imagine what the Iranian filmmaker could do with a Hollywood bankroll behind him.

Toni Erdmann (2016)
Don't let its length make you avoid 'Toni Erdmann' (as it did me -- on two occasions -- at the 41st Toronto International Film Festival). It might be 2016's best film, with two all-time classic scenes included among its many marvels.

Gold (2017)
There's really not much to mine in the hills of that movie 'Gold.' In fact, it's very similar to 'The Founder,' with a little less to . . . uh, well...chew on.

3.5/5
Writer/director/star Ben Affleck gives 'Live By Night' touches of 'Scarface,' 'Gangs of New York,' and 'The Godfather.' However, his very good-looking film certainly won't cause the likes of Francis Ford Coppola to lose any sleep.

Patriots Day (2017)
'Patriots Day' marks the second collaboration between director Peter Berg and star Mark Wahlberg in less than six months (and a third overall), but their awkward mix of pride and terror might be their best.

Silence (2017)
'Silence' in Scorsese's 20-year passion project refers to Jesuits, particularly one marvelously portrayed by Andrew Garfield, not hearing their prayers confirmed. Non-believers won't relate, but the rest might recognize some cinematic miracles.

Four years ago, young J.A. Bayona directed 'The Impossible,' a great and moving family adventure that hardly anyone saw. Now comes 'A Monster Calls,' a similarly beautiful film that deserves attention.

Inferno (2016)
The third time is not exactly a code of charms for producer/director Ron Howard and Professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) in their intricately weaved 'Inferno.'

2.5/5
A sequel titled 'Jack Reacher: Never Go Back' does not return to the surprising stuff of the 2012 original, but Tom Cruise does in overtly preposterous fashion.

Denial (2016)
No 'Denial' here, some moving Auschwitz moments and fine performances from Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson and an unrecognizably thin Timothy Spall overcome a few Hollywood intrusions.

It's just what America always needs: Disney teaming up with its partners at ESPN to give us an inspirational (minor) sports movie we've seen oh so many times before. Admittedly, 'Queen of Katwe' does get some some lift from the game of chess and Uganda.

" 'Deepwater' certainly is not awful, but you can't get more mainstream -- or predictable -- than this Peter Berg telling of what caused the big rig explosion behind the largest oil spill in U.S. history.
