Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

As Marvel keeps adding movies to the MCU it's natural to assume that they'll eventually make a movie that drops the ball. Especially when they advertise their movies for so long and get them surrounded by so much hype. However, Guardians of the Galaxy is not going to be the movie that drops that proverbial ball. Warning, spoilers ahead. 7585

Power Rangers (2017)

Saban's Power Rangers, unlike it's litany of TV incarnations, is a reboot of the original series. It updates the story of how the original 5 rangers: Jason (Dacre Montgomery), Kimberly (Naomi Scott), Billy (RJ Cyler), Zack (Ludi Lin) and Trini (Becky G.);  become the teenage super heroes that we all know. 7557

Arrival (2016)

Amy Adams has another strong 2016 entry in this alien invasion movie. Based on Ted Chiang's "Story of Your Life", Arrival feels like a combination of Signs and Momento with a twist that's both inspiring and tragic. 7374

Rogue One (2016)

The next iteration of the Star Wars franchise, is its own standalone movie more than it is a part of the Star Wars Saga. Be warned, there are spoilers that follow. 7255

Star Trek Beyond

Justin Lin directs the most recent entry into the Star Trek franchise, written by Simon Pegg. Star Trek Beyond feels kind of like a TV episode more than a movie. 6840

Ghostbusters (2016)

Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, the movie that it seemed like everyone was ready to hate, plays like an alt-world counterpart to the original films. 6753

X-Men: Apocalypse

This X-Men movie left me with very mixed feelings. It manages to be a well above average X-Men movie, while being a disappointing movie about the X-Men. 6665

Jupiter Ascending

An original sci-fi  movie from the Wachowski siblings. For that alone, it should be praised. Unfortunately, it can't be praised for much else. 2283
