|87 T10||War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) - Jul 14, 2017
"One hundred-and-fifty million dollars and two screenwriters couldn't come up with a better name for a white ape than Winter? [Read Full Review]"
|64 T4||Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) - Jul 09, 2017
"When Peter Parker begs Tony Stark to be put on bigger missions, Stark replies "Why can't you be just a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man?" It's sage advice that the film doesn't fully apply. [Read Full Review]"
|70 T6||Much Ado About Nothing (1993) - Jun 29, 2017
"Few film adaptions of Shakespeare plays have been as accessible and widely beloved as Kenneth Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing. Even fewer Shakespeare adaptions have included Michael Keaton falling asleep mid-monologue before farting himself awake, but that is just one of the many things that has made this 1993 hit an enduring minor classic.

|65 T5||Super 8 (2011) - Jun 21, 2017
"There are exactly two great moments in Super 8. One is the train crash sequence near the beginning, which is exciting and intriguingly mysterious. The other is a quick moment near the end involving a locket. Otherwise, Super 8 is well-made and passably diverting, but it's predictably assembled, with pieces that fit together just a little too snuggly. [Read Full Review]"
|62 T4||Cars 3 (2017) - Jun 16, 2017
"Pleasantly innocuous and far ahead of most competing animated films (indeed, attending audiences will likely be treated to previews for such horrors as Ferdinand and The Nut Job 2 as a reminder for how low the depths of the medium can be). But it's far below the standards Pixar has set for itself. [Read Full Review]"
|83 T9||Lou (2017) - Jun 16, 2017|
|74 T7||Captain Underpants (2017) - Jun 08, 2017
"Swallow your pride and go buy yourself a ticket to Captain Underpants. If the cashier smirks at you, just know that they have never known happiness and probably never will. Mock them at your discretion. [Read Full Review]"
|70 T6||King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) - May 14, 2017
"Starts with Eric Bana fighting hundred-foot tall elephants that are controlled by sorcerers, and then proceeds to get even more bonkers from there. [Read Full Review]"
|40 T2||Sing (2016) - May 13, 2017
"Destined to spend its lifetime in short clips on YouTube, where young children can enjoy the individual song clips (performed by all members of the animal kingdom), and ignore the pedestrian-level fluff inbetween. [Read Full Review]"
|65 T5||Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) - May 05, 2017
"There are some moments that will stand high as some of the most enjoyable sequences of the year. And that's to say nothing of the outright stunning visuals; some of the best to ever grace a superhero film. But it cannot be stressed enough how awful the script is, highlighting the very worst that Marvel screenplays have to offer. [Read Full Review]"
