Best Movies of 2017

The Top Ten

1 Logan

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

Not only is Logan an outstanding superhero / comic book movie but also one of the best films to come out in quite some time for any genre. It's a rare thing for a newly released film to give me goosebumps but Logan managed to do it. It's seriously a phenomenal film from top to bottom. I truly love this movie. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

This Movie is Boring but has its moments - judo8alex

2 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.

Great job Marvel, you've done it again! While it wasn't better than the original, you can't go wrong with seeing the sequel. Funny as hell characters, especially Star-Lord, a great story, great visuals, great everything. 8/10 - DCfnaf

I watched it and it was awesome!

3 Wonder Woman

This was marginally better than Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming. This movie, unlike the last two abominations from the DC Cinematic Universe, chose to strip it down and focus on developing ONE character: Diana Prince. It ultimately works in the movie's favor because when you focus on multiple characters, you don't get anything except cardboard characters (Looking at you, Suicide Squad). Action was great, character development was great, scenario was interesting, and beautiful scenery, especially at the Mascara. DCEU deserves a fantastic movie. This pretty much redeems them from Suicide Squad and BvS. 9/10 - DCfnaf

The movie is great, but I wanted something more, just a little thing, the third act was not as great as the first two. However, the narrative is awesome and the acting is wonderful. - Ale9991

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

This is easily one of the best movies I have ever seen. Wonder Woman could kick Marvel's glory off the table for a bit.

4 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 was better than Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! It's not better than Spider-Man 1 and 2 due to what felt like a lack of emotion, but it's definitely one of the best Spidey films we've gotten in recent memory. Tom Holland flawlessly portrays Peter Parker/Spider-Man and the supporting cast does a fantastic job. The action is also pretty sweet. This is overrated, but it is still a great movie. 8/10 - DCfnaf

Not as good as spiderman 2 but still a very good spiderman

Epic that's all I can say

5 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.

Wow who'd have thought that Dan Stevens could belt a tune? There's even a Hobbit reunion of sorts here with Bard the Bowman being Gaston and Gandalf being a very Shakespearian Cogsworth.

6 The Lego Batman Movie

This is probably one of the funnest 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. - eventer51314

Much better than the stupid boss baby, this movie rules - VideoGamefan5

7 Star Wars: Episode VIII

May the force be with you...

@darthvadern What are you talking about? Force Awakens was one of the best movies of 2015. I mean, what's so bad about it besides the fact that it's similar to A New Hope? Huh?

I hope this one is good because the force awakens and rogue one were kind of disappointing, I wanted more but those movies are overrated - Ale9991

Why so high? It's not even released yet, and the force awakens was such a bad movie! - darthvadern

8 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

Honestly, one of my all-time favourite movies. And I only saw it last month, so that says it all.

That movie was awesome!

Uh...yeah, this deserves the top ten. Come on guys, vote vote vote, it's one of the best this year. - DCfnaf

9 Despicable Me 3

It's a decent movie and the weakest in the trilogy.

They've never messed up a Despicable Me movie, so I know this will be great. - Absolite

I'm sorry but I hated this one to be honest

Please get this to the bottom of the list

10 Baby Driver

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

Great suspense, Great characters, great action, and great acting. Baby Driver is a must see!

Saw the trailer. It looks funny and is actually original.

Amazing movie!

The Newcomers

? Once Upon a Time in Venice
? King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Even Rough Night & Alien Covenant were way better.

This movie is really underrated and enjoyable. - djmine46

The Contenders

11 Justice League

I am so excited for this epic like movie

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.

12 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

Decent enough. Not bad but not amazing either. Super overrated and unfunny garbage that is trying too hard to stay relevant. This franchise needs to end now. 5/10 - DCfnaf

This is movie is hilarious, while I enjoyed the first four movies more, this ia still awesomne, it has great special effects, and the execution scenes wwere the best part in the movie, Jacks lines he says at that part are hilarious. - darthvadern

13 Kong: Skull Island

I honestly found it quite thrilling and the plot was pretty interesting to me. Nothing groundbreaking but it was a fun science fiction flick. 8/10 - 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

SPOILERS: Godzilla's cameo appears in flashbacks during the 1954 attack. And Mutos have been mentioned. And the movie will be fantastic!

Good Movie - JPK

15 Captain Underpants

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. 7/10 - DCfnaf

I can't believe I doubted this - Trollsfan536

16 War for the Planet of the Apes

? , #20. Come on man. This is going to be the best planet of the apes movie. Even one of the best of 2017. And they have very good reviews. At least in the top 5

Critics love it, people love it, why is it so low?

Very hyped for it - VideoGamefan5

This is the best apes movie - ikerevievs

17 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

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

18 Cars 3

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

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

I have a good feeling this will be great - VideoGamefan5

It was better than the other two. This felt like a real Pixar film. - Phillip873

19 John Wick: Chapter 2
20 The Fate of the Furious

Well, it wasn't that great. It's a 7.5 out of 10. The story may have been off the edge, characters remained the same, and there's new vehicles that people would love to get their hands on.

Never expected this to be so good. Awesome everything. Best film of 2017 screb. 10/10 - AlphaQ

awful - Ale9991
