Ice Queen: “Unforgettable” blends the formulaic, trashy and nervy
Unforgettable (2017) 100 min., rated R. On the face of it, “Unforgettable”—a title that really doesn’t mean much—initially seems like there is nothing new at play here since the 1990s when the “…from Hell” thriller genre was hot. 1987’s “Fatal Attraction” s...

These Deals Were Made For Shooting: "Free Fire" a genre exercise that grows monotonous
Free Fire (2017) 90 min., rated R. “Free Fire” is the kind of genre work that one can either see as exhilarating fun or interminable tedium on the screen. The footprint made by anything Quentin Tarantino, particularly 1992’s “Reservoir Dogs,” is all over th...

Monster Smashed: "Colossal" audacious enough to make up for tonal flaws
Colossal (2017)  110 min., rated R. An alcoholic confronting one’s inner monsters has never been explored in the way it is in writer-director Nacho Vigalondo’s “Colossal,” where the monster is both literal and metaphorical in a story both human and fantasti...

Family Goes Fast: "Fate of the Furious" certainly needless but still delivers a fun brand of dumb
The Fate of the Furious (2017) 136 min., rated PG-13. It took seven movies and the crushingly tragic real-life death of one of its leading stars for “The Fast and the Furious” franchise to actually reinvigorate itself and become the movies they should have ...

Frankie Pretty: “The Assignment” finds little pulpy fun in gonzo premise
The Assignment (2017) 95 min., rated R. Formerly called “Tomboy” and then “(Re)Assignment,” transgendered revenge tale “The Assignment” is about a hitman becoming a hitwoman against his, now her, will. Though the film already garnered controversy by the pol...

Codger Robbers: "Going in Style" a safe, amiable excuse to watch old pros
Going in Style (2017) 96 min., rated PG-13. 1993’s “Grumpy Old Men” and 1995’s “Grumpier Old Men.” 1997’s “Out to Sea.” 2000’s “Space Cowboys” and “The Crew.” 2013’s “Last Vegas.” One can count on more than one hand the number of comedies revolving around o...

Hospital Hell: "The Void" an insanely fun hybrid of everything nightmarish
The Void (2017) 90 min., not rated (equivalent of an R). “The Void” ends up as a different movie than what it is at the start, and that’s a compliment to Canadian film production company collectively known as Astron-6. Written and directed by Jeremy Gillesp...

Princess of Darkness: Rewards are few in moody “Blackcoat’s Daughter”
The Blackcoat’s Daughter (2017) 93 min., rated R.  Forgoing original title “February” for a much more foreboding choice, “The Blackcoat’s Daughter” is a divisive experience. On the one hand, it’s a shivery, hushed mood piece that defines the term “slow burn...

Look Who's Talking Like a Boss: "Boss Baby" milks just enough wit from strange premise
The Boss Baby (2017) 97 min., rated PG. Guileless but mischievous, animated comedy “The Boss Baby” hits the tickle spot every now and then, even if it will most likely evaporate from the viewer’s memory following the length of the running time. Written by M...

Space Horrors: "Life" carried out with enough skill and tension to stand out
Life (2017) 103 min., rated R. With any space-set horror thriller, it’s hard not to stop thinking of 1979’s “Alien,” the grandaddy of the genre. “Life” is derivative, sure, but if it’s a rip-off of that Ridley Scott-helmed mainstay, this is one of the more ...
