Top 10 Movies of 2017

  1. mother!I don’t know if this movie is some kind of weird torture or a masterpiece. It’s been a week and I still can’t stop thinking about it. It’s pretty much how I feel about every Aronofsky movie.
  2. Star Wars: The Last JediFor me this movie had some of the highest highs and lowest lows of the entire film series. I still really loved this movie and can’t wait to see it over and over again.
  3. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2Everything was bigger and better, exactly how a sequel should be. The movie was very funny and I was surprised how sad I felt by the end.
  4. Spider-Man: HomecomingSpider-Man is fun again! I loved all the tie-ins to the previous MCU movies and I felt Keaton’s Vulture was the most relatable villain yet in one of these movies.
  5. T2 TrainspottingI forgot how much I loved all of these characters and I loved all the echoes back to the original film. The message of moving on and reconciling your past really hit me hard.
  6. I Don’t Fell at Home in This World AnymoreTremendous debut feature from Macon Blair. Equal parts hilarious and horrifying. I’m really looking forward to what Macon makes next.
  7. The Big SickThe exact movie we all need right now. Overflowing with charm and heart. I’d be surprised if this movie doesn’t rack up a few Oscar nominations next year.
  8. LoganA very touching and fitting end to Jackman’s run as Wolverine. I can’t imagine anyone else playing this character. I liked it even more on the second viewing. And that last shot…gets me right in the feels.
  9. Brawl in Cell Block 99A scary and powerful performance from Vince Vaughn. Zahler might only be 2 movies into his career but he’s quickly becoming one of my favorite directors.
  10. Free FireI’ve been pretty lukewarm on Ben Wheatley’s movies over the last few years but I’ve stuck with him because I know the guy is talented. I’m happy I did because Free Fire is a total success. I had a blast watching these wanna-be criminals turn on each other over a gun deal gone bad.
