LOGAN (USA, R) – Somebody created some mutant children in order to turn them into soldiers, so Wolverine and a little feral girl rip bad guys to bloody pieces in this raw, R-rated Marvel movie which reaches new heights of my kind of perfection.
DIRECTED BY: James Mangold
STARRING: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal, Elizabeth Rodriguez
METASCORE: 77, based on 51 Critics
GET OUT (USA, R) - This is a horror story about an interracial couple. Their relationship is fine; they've made it to the "meet the parents" phase. Her parents are overly nice and he believes it’s because they are trying to show how totally okay they are with the relationship but actually something horrifying is happening.
DIRECTED BY: Jordan Peele
STARRING: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Lil Rel Howery, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Stephen Root, Catherine Keener
METASCORE: 84, based on 48 Critics
THE GREAT WALL (USA, PG-13) - Matt Damon tries to protect the Great Wall of China from monsters. He's part of a diverse group of warriors, but none are samurai, I don't think, because they're not in Japan. But they're all something fighty. It's not based on real events, though, because everyone knows the real monsters, like Godzilla, live in Tokyo.
DIRECTED BY: Yimou Zhang
STARRING: Matt Damon, Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe, Andy Lau, Hanyu Zhang
METASCORE: 42, based on 40 Critics
ROCK DOG (USA, PG) - A radio falls from the sky and into the hands of a dog. This gives the mastiff big ideas and he sets off to become a musician. Then some other stuff happens and, oh yeah, it's a kids' movie.
DIRECTED BY: Ash Brannon
VOICES BY: Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard, J. K. Simmons, Lewis Black, Kenan Thompson, Mae Whitman, Jorge Garcia, Matt Dillon, Sam Elliott
METASCORE: 48, based on 14 Critics
^DHEEPAN (France, Not Rated) - Deephan is a freedom fighter during the civil war in Sri Lanka. As the war is coming to a close, he flees to France. There he becomes caretaker for a crime-ridden tenement building and manny for a single woman and her daughter.
DIRECTED BY: Jacques Audiard
STARRING: Antonythasan Jesuthasan, Kalieaswari Srinivasan, Claudine Vinasithamby, Vincent Rottiers, Marc Zinga
METASCORE: 76, based on 29 Critics
*MY LIFE AS A ZUCCHINI (France, PG-13) - After the death of his mother, a little claymation boy goes to live in an orphanage.

MOUNTAIN (Israel, Not Rated) - An Orthodox Jewish woman befriends a group of prostitutes and drug dealers who meet up in a cemetery atop a mountain - hence the movie's title.

1944 (Estonia, Not Rated) - This is not a movie about the number 1944. Instead, it is a movie about the year 1944, during which time WWII was happening. Nestled three years after the invasion of Pearl Harbor and just one year before the bombing of Hiroshima, there was the Battle of Tannenberg in Estonia.
DIRECTED BY: Elmo Nuganen
STARRING: Kaspar Velberg, Kristjan Üksküla, Maiken Schmidt
