Summer Movie Scorecard 2017


Leap! (2017)

Adjusted Score: 40.714%
Critics Consensus: From its bland story to its unremarkable animation, Leap! does little to distinguish itself from a long list of like-minded -- and superior -- family-friendly alternatives.

Directed By: Eric Summer, Éric Warin

Adjusted Score: 50.657%

Directed By: Patrick Hughes

Adjusted Score: 48.288%
Critics Consensus: Everything, Everything should tug young adult heartstrings fairly effectively, but may not be quite engrossing enough to woo less melodramatically inclined viewers.

Directed By: Stella Meghie

Adjusted Score: 48.967%

Directed By: Eleanor Coppola


Rough Night (2017)

Adjusted Score: 51.451%

Directed By: Lucia Aniello


Churchill (2017)

Adjusted Score: 53.197%

Directed By: Jonathan Teplitzky


The Glass Castle (2017)

Adjusted Score: 57.267%
Critics Consensus: The Glass Castle has an affecting real-life story and a hard-working cast in its corner, but they aren't enough to outweigh a fundamentally misguided approach to the material.
Synopsis: Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family, THE GLASS CASTLE is a remarkable story of unconditional love.... [More]
Directed By: Destin Daniel Cretton


The Dinner (2017)

Adjusted Score: 51.255%
Critics Consensus: The Dinner's strong ensemble isn't enough to overcome a screenplay that merely skims the surface of its source material's wit and insight.

Directed By: Oren Moverman

Directed By: Luc Besson


47 Meters Down (2017)

Adjusted Score: 58.99%
Critics Consensus: 47 Meters Down doesn't take its terrifying premise quite as far as it should, but its toothy antagonists still offer a few thrills for less demanding genre enthusiasts.
Synopsis: Two sisters vacationing in Mexico become trapped in a shark cage on the ocean floor. As their oxygen starts to... [More]
Directed By: Johannes Roberts


Despicable Me 3 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 65.693%
Critics Consensus: Despicable Me 3 should keep fans of the franchise consistently entertained with another round of colorful animation and zany -- albeit somewhat scattershot -- humor.

Directed By: David F. Sandberg


Cars 3 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 78.163%
Critics Consensus: Cars 3 has an unexpectedly poignant story to go with its dazzling animation, suggesting Pixar's most middle-of-the-road franchise may have a surprising amount of tread left.
Synopsis: Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out... [More]
Directed By: Brian Fee


Alien: Covenant (2017)

Directed By: Ridley Scott


Landline (2017)

Adjusted Score: 78.657%
Critics Consensus: Landline's talented cast -- and a fast-paced approach from director/co-writer Gillian Robespierre -- help this charming multi-generational dramedy overcome a familiar storyline.

Directed By: Gillian Robespierre
