Summer vacation brought plenty of new films to the big green - we ranked the best (and worst) movies of the summer, so you don't have to.
Here’s the breakdown of summer movies reviewed, from best to worst.
- Kidnap – 4/5 stars. Every other scene, there were unrealistic choices made by the mom, Karla Dyson (Halle Berry). At one point in the movie, she even neglected the chance to save her son Frankie McCoy (Sage Correa) by not taking down one of the kidnappers when she had the chance. Halle Berry played the role of the mother surprisingly well considering the movies plot. Click here to read the full review.
- Annabelle:Creation – 3/5 stars. Annabelle: Creation serves as a thrilling prequel to the Conjuring franchise despite its flaws. The movie tells the story of how the titular doll came to be. Click here to read the full review.
- Detroit – 2/5 stars. Detroit is a crime drama, directed by Kathryn Bigelow, that follows the events of the Algiers Motel murders of 1967. Three young unarmed black men were killed and nine others were violently beaten. All of this is set during the Detroit Riot of 1967, which was one of the most violent and infamous civil rights riots in U.S. history. Click here to read the full review.
- The Dark Tower – 1/5 stars. The Dark Tower was released on Aug. 4 and received many bad reviews since the release. Even with award-winning actor Idris Elba as the lead, it seems The Dark Tower couldn’t be saved. Click here to read the full review.
