Best Movies of 2017

Spokedglow
This is a list of the best movies released in the year of 2017. This year had a lot of blockbusters and highly anticipated movies released such as Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Logan: The Wolverine, etc.

The Top Ten

1 Logan

Awesome movie. So much better than that overrated Infinity War and Endgame. This and Spiderman 2 are the best Marvel movies

Best Marvel movie in my opinion.

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.

Realistic special effects - ElSherlock

2 Spider-Man: Homecoming

So overrated! Why are Marvel movies always dominating these type of movie lists? Every year they release a spew of superhero movies that gets a lot hype and attention only to come out disappointing in reality. This was no different from that case.

The main reason why everyone went to see this besides the MCU hype was obviously because of Tom Holland, who I guess is a decent pick to play Spider-Man, but he is still no match to Tobey Maguire. There was barely any emotional moments in the film, it honestly felt like an amateur comedy movie at times. The plot was nothing new to the table, and honestly I have absolutely no clue why some people say that this was better than the rabidly over-hated Spider-Man 3. - Joeljohns249

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a Spider can! - sonictiger

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

Great acting - ElSherlock

3 Thor: Ragnarok

Number 6 mcu
Number 34 all time
Number 1 2017

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

The only reason this should be first is because Loki! He is the best!

It was...good. But they really need to stop with this child pandering humor. These movies are PG13 for a reason, so I'm sick of them doing this with the jokes. The only time these dumb jokes worked were in Spider-Man: Homecoming because Spidey is a character that's all goofy and ridiculous. Thor is not a character that's supposed to be a walking joke, he's a god. And his portrayal here was MUCH different in comparison to the other movies he was featured in.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it. Great visuals, and the story was actually pretty interesting, albeit cliche. 7/10

Edit: This shrunk on me a lot. Debating on a 6/10 or 5/10 currently. - DCfnaf

4 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Cool sounstrack - ElSherlock

This and Thor ragnarock are the two best and funniest movies in mcu! Thumbs up if agree!

This movie was excellent, better than original - darthvadern

Better than the original - iliekpiez

5 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

Worst movie of all time! Disney Star Wars is garbage!

A disgrace to the star wars name. Even worse than attack of the clones

How tf is this at #5?!?!?! This movie was so unimaginably bad that I was ready to walk out of the theatre. Let's meet a cast of boring nobodies, wipeout the plot and butcher the characters. If you thought that this movie was good I can only imagine you have never seen a Star Wars movie.

More than a billion people disagree with you judging on the box office - csam_220

6 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

This movie gets too much hate. It is one of the best war movies in recent times. This movies deserves much better reception.

Many people seem not to like this movie for various reasons. But I loved it.

Nolan at his very best

7 Baby Driver

This is my favorite of the year.

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

8 Wonder Woman

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

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

Overrated as hell. Wonder Woman sucked. So boring and bad acting.

9 Coco

This movie needs to be in the top five. One of the greatest movies I've seen - darthvadern

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

The jokes are funny - ElSherlock

I couldn't really tell that this was going to be a rip-off for The Book of Life because I've never seen it. I watched Coco for the first time in theaters and it was amazing. The animation was absolutely stunning (there were SKELETONS that were beautifully designed) and the characters playing guitar had their fingers actually look like they were playing guitar. The Land of the Dead also looked absolutely beautiful. I love its message about family and I loved the characters. More of this please Pixar. - PhoenixAura81

10 Get Out

Phenomenal soundtrack, intelligent writing, marvelous acting, superb storyline, just best 2017 movie in my opinion. - DarkKnight2005

Cleverly written and completely unpredictable. Opened a whole new door for upcoming horror movies - Ang2001

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

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

The Contenders

11 War for the Planet of the Apes

The action is epic - ElSherlock

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.

12 Blade Runner 2049

WHO IS THE IDIOT THAT PUT THOR RAGNAROK AHEAD OF THIS MASTERPIECE

The spectacle of this movie, the cinematography, production design, and musical score make this film stand out, but the heart of the film lies in the deeply layered screenplay, complex performances and the world of the original Blade Runner, which is expanded upon to great effect.

Should be higher. - OwenBuckner97

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

13 It

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

Clowns rule, I find them super cute - Izalien

What a terrible list, All the movies high on the list are just marvel movies - B1ueNew

I hate It 2017 because I hate the actor of Pennywise and I like the one with Tim Curry better in 1990

14 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.

Colorful but that's it, this movie is nothing but a cash-grab that breaks the whole point of Batman - darthvadern

15 Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

The characters in this movie are amazing. Every single character they make, you feel empathy for them straight away.

Should be number one. - OwenBuckner97

An original film, thought provoking, great cast and acting, strong character development, a must-see - Benjy

Way more than a generic mystery, this movie has amazing characters, clever writing, and offers a realistic look at how one case can change a whole town

16 Beauty and the Beast

Should be number 1 because I love that candlestick in the film

Love this movie. emma watson rules!

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!

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.

17 The Shape of Water

Just, the movie was amazing

This one should be number one

18 Justice League

Wanna hear a joke? Zack Snyder movies are masterpiece. Well that is what his crybaby delusional fanboys always tell.

Best movie. Better than Revengers and Godfather. Zack Snyder is King of movie making.

Oh my this movie is garbage. Ben Affleck was cool in BvS but he absolutely sucked in BvS. Superman has literally become a joke now. Flash was wired and Cyborg was boring. Wonderwoman and Aquaman was ok. Steppenwolf sucked. But I still at least enjoyed it more than that abomination of a movie Dawn of Martha

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

19 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

I thought it was good. - iliekpiez

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

20 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

This was hilarious, way better than anyone expected. - Solarian

On rewatch, it is a "meh" - iliekpiez

From what I've seen so far, the only animated film that really impressed me was The Lego Batman Movie. However, I still had a good time with Captain Underpants, especially since I grew up with this ridiculous character. Solid animation and silly premise. Also, Weird Al made a song for it and that is awesome. 6/10 - DCfnaf

I grew up with Captain Underpants, and I had almost no doubt in my that this wasn't going to be good, and thankfully, I was right. Amazing animation, hilarious characters, nice voice acting (especially from Kevin Hart) and a massive improvement from Boss Baby - ChiefMudkip

21 Despicable Me 3

Anyone else remember when this was at 8th place? - darthvadern

Gru is back again in action with style except there's an added bonus: he has a brother. Yes, his brother's name is Dru. Both brothers have the same face and voice actor. One is an adoptive father of 3 orphans. The other is a filthy rich uncle with more expensive equipments, gadgets, and weapons. That sounds a little too much for a PG rated kids film, right?

Despicable Me 3 is a lot better than that lousy Transformers 5. At least it isn't 2.5 hours wasted on over 200 something million dollar budget. Transformers: The Last Knight was a joke to the film industry.

Fun things about DM3 is the nostalgia feel with 1980s new wave and pop music playing. I wish they would play Flock of Seagulls or Depeche Mode. It makes me want to play the synthesizer like Balthazar Bratt. Maybe he would like to perform a cover version of Sweet Dreams from Eurythmics.

Also, the jokes were over the top. I mean, how in the world could they get away with those raucous scenes while it's PG ...more

I wouldn't have put it on the list, but 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 tripping out, though. - LeiaSkywalker

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

22 Lady Bird

This is like all the lists decided by toptens voters. The top ten has all but one of the superhero movies made this year, while the actual best film of the year is in 24. Logan, which is a complete rip off of children of men is in first and all the top five are at best flawed (I did enjoy Last Jedi and Logan).

23 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

It may be the worst Pirates of the Caribbean movie, but it was still a masterpiece - darthvadern

I thought it was fine. - iliekpiez

I don't understand why it got bad reviews; I thoroughly enjoyed it despite the messy plot. - Solarian

"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

24 The Disaster Artist

Was entertaining and interesting. I recommend - Mcguy215

Made me laugh from the start to the end. James was amazing! Recreation for "The Room" scenes were top notch. Fast paced, comical, even touching at times. - Pop_Vulture

It's playing in so few theatres and it's a shame. I had to trek up to Toronto to see it and, believe me, it's great. Fans of Tommy Wiseau's original, 'The Room', and newcomers will enjoy this movie equally. Please find a way to see it. - BKAllmighty

How's this not so high up?

25 The Fate of the Furious

Did we ever need Fast 8?

It's not fast 8,it is the fate of the furious

Why is this on here twice?

This is a great movie! One of my top flicks for 2017 - Neonco31

26 Cars 3

While Cars 2 was the worst Pixar film, this movie did everything to put the franchise back on track! Highly enjoyable as well, new set of characters are a lot of fun, extremely well written as well. Good job, Pixar!

KA-CHOW! - sonictiger

Cars 2 was the worst Pixar film ever, but this movie contains the spirit of the original!

This movie was really exciting! It's not the best one in the trilogy, but surely way better than the super boring original! The story was pretty good as well. However Jackson Storm is just a Chick-Hicks rip-off because they're both arrogant and cheat - darthvadern

27 Darkest Hour
28 Call Me by Your Name

A very touching and beautiful movie. Loved it

NO! This movie encourages pedophilia. Get it off here NOW! - Solarian

29 Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Usually when they modernize old movies, it ends up an abomination. But not in this case. I enjoyed the humor in this one and I laughed plenty of times.

Halarious like the part when bethany saw a male part on herself

Best movie I've ever seen

Have to say, this was much better than I was expecting. Had some pretty great moments.

30 Paddington 2

That was a really good movie. The first one was simply phenomenal and this second movie is has good, if not better! - RogerMcBaloney

31 The Greatest Showman

Should be in the top 5

Wow, all the way down here? How come the best movies are the most underrated ones?

This is actually one of the best movies ever not just 2017

This should be way higher!

32 John Wick: Chapter 2

Best action film since Mad Max Fury Road. - iliekpiez

The 5th best movie of 2017

That pencil murder scene was brutal...AND I LOVED IT!

This was great!

33 Phantom Thread
34 The Founder
35 Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Dissapointing movie. - iliekpiez

Great movie! It stands great next to the first one! A great story overall.The acting is brilliant! - H1DRO

This movie is extremely fun to watch and almost as good as the first one.

36 The Florida Project

I cried so much.

Haven't seen this yet, but it looks great, so I'll submit it. - djpenquin999

37 Power Rangers

This movie is great! Don't listen to those always-right critics, it's funny, action-packed, amazing, and good story. I give it a 9/10. 1/10 for some unexplained flaws - Neonco31

Critics overhated this and audiences overrated this. Huh. 6/10 - DCfnaf

Stunk, it was super unfunny, a ripoff, dumb, and just bad 210 - TopTenListmaker

This was epic! It's funny, Amazing and better than Momsyer Trucks. - AlphaQ

I strongly disagree with you sayings it's better than monster trucks. - Trollsfan536

38 Wind River

How is this behind The Boss Baby and The Lego Ninjago movie. This is a great movie.

39 Split

I really liked it - iliekpiez

Very good film didn't know what would happen - Froglamb

Shyamalan is back - PeterG28

Saw it last week at the cinemas. Pritty good M. Night Shamalayn film. Very intriguing.

40 Good Time
41 A Dog's Purpose

Bad movie - iliekpiez

I knew it was going to be sad, but my mom's boyfriend still made us go see it (but he didn't have to) despite me saying that it was going to be super sad. And it WAS! I loved almost every single minute of it, but I cried so hard. 8/10. - LeiaSkywalker

An absolute BS movie. The life of a dog! For 90 minutes. It's basically a cheesy version of Edge of Tomorrow. Dog lives. Dog dies. Dog repeats. Such a sappy piece of sh. 0/10

This movie by far is the best movie of 2017

42 Happy End
43 Mother!

J Law's performance was too over the top & Afronasty is stupidly overrated.

44 Wonder

LOVE IT It's SO MEANINGFUL

My favorite movie

Watch it. That's all I can tell you. Even if you haven't read the book, this movie is amazing. It's powerful, heartwarming, and it has a great cast. While it may not be the perfect adaptation (it left out some minor details), it's filled to the brim with heart, comedy, and life lessons. 9/10 - Absolite

Best movie ever

45 Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie

It's not theatrical, but this T.V. movie totally made a revival for the series. I knew Nick went back to normal thanks to our hero Loud House.

46 Born in China
47 A Silent Voice

Amazing! I just watched it and send out a very powerful and emotional message!

Hands down this is the best animated movie of the year. This movie is really mature and discusses actual problems of society. - Ale99

48 I, Tonya

Amazing and powerful true story. Margot Robbie shines in this emotional biopic as one of the most misunderstood people in history.

49 Monster Trucks

One of the worst of 2017 - iliekpiez

I've seen the trailer. Since Nickelodeon is making this, I have very low expectations and saw infantile humor.

Total beat for beat rip-off of the first transformers movie just watch it and almost no humor and generic action scenes I can't believe it costed $125 million to make it looked like it costed less than $25 million to make just terrible!

I saw this in theaters and I loved it. - Powerfulgirl10

50 The Big Sick

Probably the best movie
In the list
