Best Movies of 2017

The Top Ten

1 Logan

This film knocked me flat. I've always been a massive fan of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine - I think his was one of the best superhero casting choices possible for Marvel, and the same goes for Patrick Stewart as Professor X. He absolutely floored me in this film, his performance was so unchained, so phenomenal that I thought that This film had a very Western look and feel to it, which I thought was a pretty great idea since it added to the feeling of solitude that the film developed. Patrick Stewart was brilliant as Charles Xavier, surpassing every single performance he gave in the previous instalments, and I also liked Richard E. Grant as the main villain. The action sequences...are sensational. This film has some of the most riveting action sequences I have ever seen in a superhero film. The direction is perfect, the score is good, it has some truly glorious character moments throughout, and let's just say that the character of Laura is awesome. I loved this movie.

Not just a great superhero movie, but an excellent film in general. Though Logan is full of exciting and thrilling moments, it never fails as a touching and compelling drama. The dynamics between Logan, Laura and Charles are always gripping and very well done. The story doesn't try to be pretensious, and is very simple, which works in the film's favour. The action sequances are brutal, but very well done, and the violence is not just there for the sake of it, but has a meaning to it. It shows the consequences of Wolverine using his powers, whether for good or not. Hugh Jackman gives his best prerformances and perhaps one of the best performances in the last 10 years of cinema as a tired, weary and depressed Logan. Patrick Stewart, as usual, is fantastic, as well as Stephen Merchant, who whilst having little screen time, shines as Caliban. All the techincal aspects of the film such as cinematography, editing, sound, visual effects, CGI and music were top-notch. Logan isn't a ...more

10/10. I don't even need to explain why. Just WATCH it. I'm not even giving it that rating because it's a superhero movie. Just because it's a movie about superheroes does not mean it will be good (Batman V Superman anyone? ). This, however, is just perfect. A simple story working in favor for the film, brutal action sequences that make perfect sense, touching and compelling moments to put a drama aspect in there, and perfect dynamics between everybody. It also looks great. This is up there with The Dark Knight as one of the best movies of all time. - DCfnaf

Sorry Logan, but you lost. Black Panther takes the thrown as the best Marvel movie of all time. Long live the king!

2 Spider-Man: Homecoming

I just saw it, and it was a MEGA improvement on the last Spider-Mans. This movie is just hilarious at times just because peter Parker is doing teenager things or being awkward with his friend. Also, I am glad that there is only ONE bad guy, who's motivations are pretty simple other than "I'm gonna destroy the world or take over it haha". He's just a guy who wants to provide for and protect his normal family. Way better than Wonder Woman (which is still good but I found overrated) - Phillip873

This is the best Spiderman movie I have seen personally. Tom Holland is a good Spiderman, but he's an excellent Peter Parker. The action is truly amazing, and the story is much more than the typical, "oh no, the bad guy has such strong powers how will we defeat them" storyline, with actual consequences to the characters and story with every scene. Also, not to spoil it, just be ready: Vulture is one of the best villains of the entire MCU. - LarkwingFlight

People like only because of that stupid Tom Holland.

No sequel for this movie.

3 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

This movie is great, some may say it's either as good as or not as good as the first, but either way this movie is awesome. It's really funny and (SPOILER! ) the bad guy is literally A PLANET! I still think that the casting for this movie was great too, Chris Pratt is the perfect star lord in my opinion. - Phillip873

I went to watch it with my dad and little sister and this was just great! At least Marvel still stands. Not like Dreamworks, which used to make masterpieces like Shrek or Madagascar and now this crap called Boss baby. Illumination was never good, so wasn't Sony.

The first was better in my opinion but I enjoyed this one and I find it to be one of the more unique Marvel films because the plot was very unique - Mcgillacuddy

Pretty Good

4 Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I will be straight... this movie is great, the best one since episode 3 in my opinion. I hated episode 1, 2 and rogue one, those movies for me don't exist for many reasons but I'll focus on the last jedi now. In technical issues, this movie is marvelous: direction is fantastic, photography, cinematography, etc. The score is fantastic and I liked how they included older themes. The action sequences are great, one of the best IN ALL THE FRANCHISE.

Now, I'll go to the things that "fans" didn't like: 1) you didn't like how snoke died and that we didn't know anything about him, well remember that when original trilogy came out we didn't know the emperor's origins neither and he also died lamely.2) The death of captain Phasma. Well do you remember Boba Fett? He had one line in all the original trilogy and he died doing nothing. At least Phasma had more dialogue and helped in something. And you know what, she was the only one having a good suit because she was THE CAPTAIN. ...more - Ale99

I'd rather not get into argument with the haters who slammed The Last Jedi. It's like screaming at a wall that just stands there and does nothing. You can be stubborn and bash Star Wars all you'd like. Plus, this doesn't mean I'm affected by all the cynicism and pessimistic opinions. Star Wars is basically about the battle between the forces of good and evil. You know what I'm talking about: dark side versus light side of the force. Think about it.

This movie is great. The acting, effects, characters and direction are top notch. Each conflict between individual character feels real and well developed. The fight scenes are some of the best in the franchise, bring intense but fun an fast paced. The story has a couple missteps, but overall was well paced and written.

HOW IS THIS NOT THE BEST

5 Thor: Ragnarok

I just watched it today, very funny movie and way better than previous Thor films - Phillip873

This was way funnier than I expected, and this one's stan lee cameo seems to be more significant than the others (He cut thor's hair) - SpectralOwl

I like this movie! It has a good plot and a balanced amount of violence. This is the movie that everyone should enjoy, even if you don't like the violence, there is a lot of comedy.

Best movie ever

6 Wonder Woman

A week ago I saw my mom watching Wonder Woman. At first I didn't know what movie she was watching and then I ignored it. Later on, I was getting more eyed into it and I watched the rest of movie (kinda missed the first part though). After watching, I can say this. As the title says, it's wonderful in many ways. Good use of CGI, good acting, writing, story, theme, and setting. I say this can beat Guardians of the Galaxy 2 by a few meters short. Any word else. This movie is wonderful! 9.5/10 - Neonco31

First off, it begins with ominous, lugubrious music, a voice over of "Darkness" and an aerial review of the Louvre that seems full of sinister portent. I gave a shudder of dread. Are we really gonna pick up where the worst movie ever ended, Batman Vs Superman? We all know that was a disgrace to the Dark Knight and DC franchise. Fortunately, the answer was no. Once franchise community was established, a mysterious package is received from Bruce Wayne to Diana Prince, Wonder Woman's alter ego. We are transported into this heroine's earlier life, long before she met Bruce or Clark. Then we are left with a movie, a pretty good one too. 8.5/10

Yeah this movie was good and it was a mega improvement to the disasters D.C. put out last year. However I found it to be overrated and I think a 65-80 on rotten tomatoes suit it better. I mean, all the war stuff is cool and gal gadot was the perfect Wonder Woman. But I did not like the ending AT ALL. A YouTuber I watch pointed out that the ending could have been smarter other than Wonder Woman and a guy fighting and blowing stuff up. The love interest (forgot his name) says that humans are just good or bad sometimes, and if we go stop the plane, we can do good or something like that. But no ares is actually real and apparently this can't be a superhero movie without a huge explosive mega fight at the end. Also that love conquers all thing at the end was a little insulting, considering she just punched a guy repeatedly. Also, WHAT ABOUT WORLD WAR II, does ares come back or something. Other than that, it was a good movie, and it is a big improvement - Phillip873

Best superhero movie you will see!

7 Dunkirk

Dunkirk is either the best film that Christopher Nolan has ever made or it's a very, VERY close second to The Dark Knight. For years, people have criticized Nolan's movies for being too talky and having very confusing plots. With very little dialogue, Dunkirk creates some of the most intense scenes of war that I've ever seen in a film. Everything about this movie is fantastic. The direction puts you right in the middle of the chaos. The actors all grip you with their performances (including an unexpectedly great performance from One Direction's Harry Styles), and the score and effects keep your heart-pounding throughout the entire running-time. In my opinion, this is a Top 10 War film ever. It's up there with Apocalypse Now, Saving Private Ryan, Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, Paths of Glory, and The Hurt Locker. By the end of the year, I hope this gets into the Top 5 of this list, because Nolan delivered with just a fantastic movie through and through. - phillysports

Despicable me 3, wonder woman spiderman homecoming, and beauty and the beast are above this? , and justice league and star wars VIII, are movies that aren't even released yet, and yet there higher, - VideoGamefan5

Brilliant movie and definitely in the line-up with Saving Private Ryan, Full Metal Jacket, and Platoon.

Excellent

8 War for the Planet of the Apes

I was super excited to finally watch it on dvd since it got super good reviews online, boy was I disappointed with the end result. It's so forgettable and boring that I didn't even realize Caesar died at the end after watching it. The action is boring, that child does absolutely nothing to carry the plot, and there was barely any action to begin with. I have no idea where the good reviews are coming from. There wasn't even any war in it at all, just a group of people fighting a group of apes that should've all been killed off at the opening scene. Over half the movie is just apes stuck at some slave camp, and that wasn't even the low point of this snoozefest. The finale was lazy, and they didn't even bother giving the Colonel a name. This is nowhere NEAR best movie of 2017. - Midevilnight

The Apes movie sucked and was a flop.

I bet you haven't watch it yet or just skipped lots of parts or didn't want to understand the story. - McUniqueKiller2

This is a great movie! It should be in top 10! Not only a great war movie and a great movie, it is also a great sequel to the two previous installments.

Masterpiece, this movie was flawless. - PeeledBanana

9 Baby Driver

The most original and creative film of 2017 and possibly the 2010s as a whole. Exceptional everything, deserves to be number 1and more people should go out and support this masterpiece.

Right from the trailer you know that it will be great. The movie is better. Logan is better than most super hero movies today but Baby Driver is more daring, ballsy, and fun

This movie was a blast, best soundtrack since guardians of the galaxy, and fits with the movie unlike Suicide Squad. I enjoyed this more than Kingsman and the nice guys! And that is impressive. Incredible movie - Hater

The top six movies on this list are either superhero movies or sequels. What a shock. - phillysports

10 Get Out

Good, it's in the top ten, now we need it in the top 5. The story was so amazing and I really loved the concept. I didn't think you could make normal humans so horrifying, but this movie succeeded. 11/10 - DCfnaf

Yeah, I watched this (it's supposed to be horror) the other day two nights in a row! It was AWESOME and I'm only eleven (my sister's nine). I didn't cover my eyes for any of it--except for the surgery part. I thought it was a great race movie, and yes, you should see it. It isn't actually scary, and I thought it would be horrific--I was wrong. Fabulous movie by Jordan Peele. Go GET OUT! I'm glad it's in the top ten, but it has to get to the top five, so...VOTE FOR IT!

This film is an instant classic that anyone, even ones who are most reluctant against the horror genre, can enjoy. - Mcgillacuddy

Hooray for Jordan Peele!

11 The Lego Batman Movie

This is probably one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. The characters were so good, the humor was witty and well placed, and the story and ending were very sweet. I also love it when movies add references and break the fourth wall, and this movie had plenty of that. When I watched this with my little brother and his best friend, I didn't expect much. However, this movie surprised me. Also, the occasional toilet humor wasn't too bothering, since the main humor came from the clever dialogue. This movie gets a 9/10 from me. - Absolite

I recently reviewed this movie (spoiler free) so go check it out if you want more detail as to why I loved this movie. Anyways, this should be higher. It really impressed me. Maybe put it in the Top 3? It's the best Batman Movie since Dark Knight. Heartwarming storyline, developed characters, and awesome action balanced with powerful emotional moments. Not to mention, it didn't feel pandering to the youths. 10/10 - DCfnaf

The reviews were right. Best Batman movie to date, lol. This was an all around great movie. Witty dialogue and humor that will appeal to kids, adults, and comic book nerds alike. Topped by another heartwarming message about family and keeping an open heart. I was smiling and laughing the whole time, opening credits (wink) to end credits. The Lego movie franchise has done it again.

HAHA IT IS FUNNY

12 Beauty and the Beast

This movie is great. Its on par with the original animated version. It's emotional, has great songs, and has amazing production qualities seriously look at their costumes. However, I did find the cursed furniture such as Mrs. Potts to be a little creepy, but I still like the movie. People only hate it because LeFou is gay and nostalgia for the original. This movie is way better than Blah Blah Bland! - Cartoonfan202

There is a subtle irony in your Blah Blah Bland comment. Emma Watson was originally going to be in La La Land but backed down in favour of Beast. - jezza0

It's very tricky to not be blown away by the sumptuousness of the movie itself and don't get me started on that musical homage paying extravaganza aka the Be Our Guest number.

The Gaston number in this version is extraordinary. I mean it made you want to join them and dance on those tables during that choreography routine.

This reminded me of those old fashioned live action musicals that flooded the movie industry during the mid 1960s

13 Coco

I hope me and my family can go see it in theaters during Thanksgiving break. I haven't seen a Pixar movie in a long time, and Coco is sure to be a phenomenal hit. Rest assured that it is not a Book of Life ripoff. For we shall see a vibrant and inspiring journey unfold as our aspiring musician Miguel explores the Land of the Dead and discover his family's history. This should definitely win this year's Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I saw an advanced screening of this movie, and it was amazing! It's way better than Spiderman: Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Both of those movies are good, but Coco was the prefect mix of creative and heartwarming. I almost cried in the theater. I genuinely can't wait to see this movie again.

I'm very interested, because it's based of day of the dead, which is something totally different for Disney/pixar. But I'm worried it might be a rip off of "The book of life" which came out earlier this decade - Phillip873

This movie was great but I'm sure the plot twist was great and the background looks astonishing. I actually watched The Book Of Life back in the day but it's almost a rip-off.

Well, not a rip-off.
Book Of Life has different plots and perspective of the main character (forgot his name). It also has romance on that movie. In Coco, the character (Miguel) was more focused on his dreams of becoming a musician and find his star who turned out to be a relative but it was revealed that the star's friend was a TRUE relative who wrote the song and just murder him with poison to take his song he wrote for the titular character. Yeah, that's the plot twist like Charles Muntz from Up. There is no romance but it focus on music and the plot.
The city of Afterlife was very beautiful that I just die to visit there. I'm sure Heaven was far more beautiful than this Afterlife.

I'm sure the songs in Coco was great. This deserved to be out of the Trump Wall for being the best movie ...more

14 It

Pennywise looked even more terrifying in this one than in the 1990 one. - PeeledBanana

The remake is better than the 1990 IT. Pennywise looks better, the deaths are better, and it is more scary, which means it is more awesome. Also, if you all join me, you'll float too! - Creterampage

A very thrilling film. I was surprised that it played more like an adventure film. It has a great cast and a great story.

2017 was an amazing year for horror/suspense movies. It is one of the ramake that outpassed the original. The movie with a running time of 2:15 hours is just perfect. The casting is amazing and I wish the second movie will be as good or better - Olive855

15 Blade Runner 2049

One of the best movies of the year: cinematography, direction, music, sound and visual effects are beyond perfection; and the action sequences and the acting are great too - Ale9991

I won't be shocked if this is #1 at the end of the year. One of the best sequels of all time! Brilliant in every aspect. Makes every other movie on this list look amateur

My god, this should be on top 3. Our grandchildren will watch this movie like we do "The matrix" today.

Should be in top 10 instead of star wars - Dvafan2

16 Despicable Me 3

Why is this in the top 10? Let's make it exit the top 10 please because it wasn't that great

It was actually much better than I thought it would be. To be perfectly honest, what I take from this movie is that they're going to gradually turn the franchise darker until it's no longer a comedy. I'm probably just slightly nuts, though. - LeiaSkywalker

Please get this to the bottom of the list

This movies is all about retarded,walking and screaming yellow tic tacs! I hate it and the whole idea surrounding it! - H1DRO

17 Kong: Skull Island

War for the Planet of the Apes sucks. This was a way better war movie.

I disagree. War for the planet of the apes was 3 times better than that movie. - McUniqueKiller2

I honestly found it quite thrilling and the plot was pretty interesting to me. Nothing groundbreaking but it was a fun science fiction flick. 7/10 - DCfnaf

Wow this is thrilling! The action was so epic and the plot is just intriguing! This is higher than my expectations. 9/10 - AlphaQ

For some reason I thought Kong: Skull Island was the spin-off King Kong but this movie needs to make a higher on top tens because the storyline is great and while Emoji movie is already a tyrant over the cinematic world of 2017, this movie is already on a hook.

18 Justice League

Whoop dee do, Justice League may not be a flawless sci fi superhero action flick from DCEU. So there is a few things I would want to say about it. Was it better than Dunkirk? Nope. Was it better than Inception? Nope. Was it better than The Dark Knight? Absolutely not. Was it better than Transformers 5? Yes. Afterwards, critics became divided with different opinions on how the Justice League performed. They may say what they want. Plus, it doesn't mean you have to agree with them.

I didn't like the plot however. I mean there's a bunch of cliches in it. A whole motley crew of superheroes with different superpowers? Check. Save the world from a doomsday device that isn't a thermonuclear weapon? Check. An evil villain who plans to take over the world with a massive army gets defeated by the good guys? Check. Anything else?

Also, there are 6 of our main heroes working together just like the electrifying rock and roll band named Pink Floyd. You've got Gilmour playing the lead ...more

Might fail. Eventhough it improves from Wonder Woman, think about the trailer with Ben Affleck in it. Not saying his a bad actor but he didn't succeed in most of his movies. There's a 50 or 60% this will be a fail and 50 or 40% that this will be a success.

Wow, I just saw it expecting it to be trash, and I was surprised. It really isn't as bad as I expected at all, it was fun. Probably a 6 out of 10. Which is funny because that's how I felt about Wonder Woman (same score), except that movie was praised like it was some master piece, while this movie just got crapped on! - Phillip873

This movie's disappointing box office returns have put the future of the DCEU in jeapordy. - phillysports

19 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

"Oh my goodness! This is going to be the jewel of Disney this year! I can feel it. A good sequel can have many, and this could be the perfect one! " is what I did say, and what I still say! Critics, why must you be such jerks to innocent movies. This movie was great, and the critics are kinda wrong on this one. - NoEntranceHere

It's been a while since I last watch any Pirate movie but this was perfect enough. It may not have the exact quality as the previous sequels but it still has the right blend of comedy and action. I would recommend everyone to watch it - Neonco31

People just wanna hate a Pirates movie just because it's a Pirates a movie. It's the same case with last years Ghostbusters, everyone hates the trailer so they just decide the movie will suck - Midevilnight

Oh my gosh, yes, this is the best thing ever! I love this movie so much, as well as all of the others

20 Cars 3

This movie has fairly excited for animation again this year, as Cars 3 and Coco look and sound very good. Not all the movies this year are very exciting for me, but Cars 3 looks great, has a dark sort of theme, and has amazing animation. I'm highly excited. - NoEntranceHere

Uh, this is WAY better than Despicable Me 3 (which should be towards the bottom of the list). Cars 3 is finally showcasing a bit of Pixar magic which has been missing in the series. It's still not at Pixar's top level, which is where we are with Toy Story 3, Up, Inside Out, etc. It definitely is better than a lot of other movies this year so let's try and get it higher on the list! - DisneyLover19

I feel like the Cars trilogy is literally improving. Cars 1 is the worst Pixar movie for me (I give it a 3/5) even though Cars 2 felt the least like a Pixar movie. Right now, Cars is a duology, and one of the weakest Pixar movies of all time. Pixar is not the most inventive company of all time. But it is better than most animation studios, especially early Spark Plug Entertainment (OH, HELL NO! THIS IS CANCER! ). - The Ultimate Daredevil

I didn't like this movie. It was more boring and the 1 thing that shook me was the story line. I get it, towards the end the moral "Girls Can Do Just As Much As Boys" was good, but the way the girl car that won.. it was literally a Toyota. Versus these high tech bugattis. Crazy. - Catasquote
