Adjusted Score: 16.847%
Critics Consensus: The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature may be a slight improvement over its predecessor, but its frantic animated antics still offer minimal entertainment to all but the least discriminating viewers.

Directed By: Cal Brunker

Adjusted Score: 25.117%
Critics Consensus: Cacophonous, thinly plotted, and boasting state-of-the-art special effects, The Last Knight is pretty much what you'd expect from the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise.
Synopsis: The Transformers leap into action once more in this sequel from Paramount Pictures and director Michael Bay. ~ Jason Buchanan,... [More]
Directed By: Michael Bay


All Eyez on Me (2017)

Adjusted Score: 21.041%
Critics Consensus: Despite Demetrius Shipp Jr.'s fine lead performance, All Eyez on Me is mostly a surface-skimming, by-the-numbers biopic of a larger-than-life icon.

Directed By: Benny Boom

Directed By: Nikolaj Arcel


The Mummy (2017)

Adjusted Score: 28.459%
Critics Consensus: Lacking the campy fun of the franchise's most recent entries and failing to deliver many monster-movie thrills, The Mummy suggests a speedy unraveling for the Dark Universe.

Directed By: Alex Kurtzman


The House (2017)

Adjusted Score: 22.673%

Directed By: Andrew Jay Cohen


Wish Upon (2017)

Adjusted Score: 22.087%
Critics Consensus: Wish Upon is neither scary nor original, but its fundamental flaws as a horror movie may make it destination viewing for after-midnight camp genre enthusiasts.

Directed By: John R. Leonetti


Baywatch (2017)

Adjusted Score: 27.653%
Critics Consensus: Baywatch takes its source material's jiggle factor to R-rated levels, but lacks the original's campy charm -- and leaves its charming stars flailing in the shallows.
Synopsis: BAYWATCH follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Efron). Together, they uncover... [More]
Directed By: Seth Gordon

Adjusted Score: 20.26%
Critics Consensus: With an all-new cast but the same juvenile humor, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul finds the franchise still stuck in arrested -- and largely unfunny -- development.

Directed By: David Bowers

Directed By: George Nolfi

Adjusted Score: 27.429%
Critics Consensus: The Book of Henry deserves a few points for ambition, but its tonal juggling act -- and a deeply maudlin twist -- may leave viewers gaping in disbelief rather than choking back tears.
Synopsis: Sometimes things are not always what they seem, especially in the small suburban town where the Carpenter family lives. Single... [More]
Directed By: Colin Trevorrow

Adjusted Score: 41.847%
Critics Consensus: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword piles mounds of modern action flash on an age-old tale -- and wipes out much of what made it a classic story in the first place.
Synopsis: Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword."... [More]
Directed By: Guy Ritchie

Adjusted Score: 40.582%
Critics Consensus: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales proves that neither a change in directors nor an undead Javier Bardem is enough to drain this sinking franchise's murky bilge.
Synopsis: Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new "Pirates of the... [More]


Snatched (2017)

Adjusted Score: 44.459%
Critics Consensus: Snatched has a pair of terrifically talented stars, but their presence isn't enough to compensate for this rote comedy's threadbare plot and scattershot laughs.
Synopsis: After her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) persuades her... [More]
Directed By: Jonathan Levine


Kidnap (2017)

Adjusted Score: 39.95%
Critics Consensus: Kidnap strays into poorly scripted exploitation too often to take advantage of its pulpy premise -- or the still-impressive talents of its committed star.
Synopsis: A typical afternoon in the park turns into a nightmare for single mom Karla Dyson (Academy Award winner Halle Berry)... [More]
Directed By: Luis Prieto
