|28 T1||Beauty and the Beast (2017) - Sep 13, 2017
"There's something sickeningly ironic about a remake of Disney's best animated film being even worse than Chicken Little. [Read Full Review]"
|76 T7||Only Yesterday (1991) - Sep 04, 2017
"The payoff occurs, quite unexpectedly, during the end credits, in a sequence that is so uncommonly joyful and touching that it deserves to be idolized among the best individual scenes of the studio. Takahata commonly saves the best for last, and Only Yesterday is no exception. [Read Full Review]"
|35 T2||Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron (2002) - Aug 29, 2017
"Calling it a turkey would be overly cruel, but this film is barely feathers, let alone a whole bird. Avoid unless toting a horse-loving toddler. And even then, there's a legacy of galloping sidekicks throughout the filmography of Disney Animation that will better serve your child. [Read Full Review]"
|76 T7||Logan Lucky (2017) - Aug 27, 2017
"Owing as much to Ocean's Eleven as it does to Fantastic Mr. Fox, Logan Lucky is a Summer highlight (as if those two film comparisons could be read as anything other than a ringing endorsement). [Read Full Review]"
|56 T4||Planet of the Apes (1968) - Aug 26, 2017
"It's better to recognize the film for its technical achievements and legacy than its storytelling. [Read Full Review]"

"It would be easy to call Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets the best Star Wars film since The Empire Strikes Back, but that's too much of a compliment for Star Wars. [Read Full Review]"
|47 T3||The Great Wall (2017) - Jul 22, 2017
"Has fun sequences, but it's a forgettable and unengaging throwaway. [Read Full Review]"
|85 T9||Dunkirk (2017) - Jul 22, 2017
"The runtime is (refreshingly) brief at just 100 minutes, which combined with the sparse use of dialogue, means the characters are not as obviously defined as in Nolan's other talkier films. But the character development is absolutely still there, and frankly even if it wasn't, Dunkirk is such an astonishing spectacle that it's hard to imagine too many viewers being unengaged.

|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]"
