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

Did you guys seriously only vote based on the trailer or did you seriously think this was the only movie in 2017 - TakeMyHandInForcedMarriage

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.

Ugh Finally a good spider man movie! - B0S5J4M3S

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.

May not be the best in the franchise but it’s still nothing compared to the Prequels

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.

Here's my Top 10 best movies of 2017 (i haven't watched IT, Logan, nor Baby Driver yet)
10. Star Wars: The Last Jedi
9. The Lego Batman Movie
8. Kong: Skull Island
7. Blade Runner 2049
6. War For The Planet of the Apes
5. Dunkirk
4. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
3. Spider-Man: Homecoming
2. Wonder Woman
1. Thor: Ragnarok

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

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

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

Great comic book film. Good cast. Some CGI and aspects from the story needs improvement, but as a comic book fan, I cannot be happier with the overall result. - Pop_Vulture

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.

I feel this movie is so underrated. Just because Nolan made it in a different style, that doesn't mean its not good. Nolan's best film in my opinion.

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

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

This movie was creepy but that's what made it AMAZING!

9 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.

Awesome movie, but was really sad as well.

10 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

Yes! thank you for getting this on the list!

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.

12 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

13 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

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.

Very chilling but the fandom has averaged over sexualised Pennywise, this is what the world has come to

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

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.

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

One of the best sequels of all time in my opinion. Hands down the most visually stunning film of 2017. Absolute perfection

16 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

Yet another terrible movie from the DCEU. Also Snack Ryder is an awful director. His versions of Batman and Superman are terrible with no character depth. Flash sucked and Wonder Woman is overrated. Cyborg and Aquaman are forgettable. The movie is straight garbage.

17 Despicable Me 3

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

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

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

18 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

I enjoyed it. Probably the best Kong film along with the original 1933 one in my opinion. Great cast, action, effects, and Kong gets alots of screentime too. - Pop_Vulture

19 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

20 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

Fk this movie to hell!

21 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

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

The movie is called Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie and not just Captain Underpants, but anyway, this movie is great and I highly recommend it to you. - darthvadern

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

This was an awesome movie! - KomaDan

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 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

This one should be number one

25 Call Me by Your Name
26 The Disaster Artist

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

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

How's this not so high up?

oh hi mark

27 Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

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

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

28 The Florida Project

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

29 Darkest Hour
30 John Wick: Chapter 2

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

This was great!

31 Split

Shyamalan is back - PeterG28

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

32 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

33 A Dog's Purpose

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 - naFrovivuS

This movie by far is the best movie of 2017

34 My Little Pony

I just watched it today. I can say this. The characters are well performed, the music is delighting, the plot (despite some cliches) is enjoyable, and the animation is a match for most other popular cartoons and done in 2D! And the theme gave me tons of Disney vibes. Definitely deserves more praise than it gets from critics. I've heard it's a niche movie so it's distribution is limited that's why it lasted only 1 week in the nearest theater to my home before being overshadowed. My current favorite animated movie this year, but I'm also expecting Cars 3 and Lego Batman, which I will try to watch next time. My rating, 9/10 - Neonco31

In the midst of one of the crappiest years for movies (animation-wise, especially), I have to give my praise to this interstellar movie. While the plot did have holes in some places and the main villain felt slightly like a less charming ripoff of Discord, this movie kept me immersed with its awesome characters, great songs, and by far the best 2D animation I've ever seen. The animation REALLY pulls you in with its depth and detail to every frame, and you can tell a LOT of effort got put into this movie. If you are a fan of the show, a neutral bystander, or even some random stranger who's never heard of MLP, I highly recommend it. It stinks that people hate it, calling it even worse than the EMOJI MOVIE (somehow) all simply because they dislike bronies. But while this might be tied as my favorite movie for 2017 along with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, I still call this by far the best animated masterpiece of the year. - pikacory02

If I can't watch it, I'll watch it online if I can! - Neonco31

If the 2016 PPG reboot made things worse, look at this. It is a ripoff of the original 1986 version. Not to mention the plot is different from that of the villains of the original movie. I of all people should've told whoever directed this film to tone down on the songs. I mean look at Hasbro, recently they've become the toymakers for Power Rangers. If the 26th season does worse than 2017-18's Ninja Steel, than we would be headed for a total catastrophe. Victor and Monty are like the Bulk/Skull of 2017-18. Let's hope we don't get any more comedic relief from these two for a long time. I am disappointed at how the 24th season ruined a really good kids show, Why didn't they adapt Goggle V instead of Ninninger. I mean the 39th season of Super Sentai had the lowest in toys. With Saban Brands adapting Go-Busters for 2019, we could fix 2014's Super Megaforce, which of course was an absolute failure to fans.

35 The Greatest Showman

I personally prefer monster movies, so I didn't expect much. But I was so very wrong. Out of all of the movies I saw in 2017, this was easily my favorite. Deserves to be in the Top 5 at least.

The best musical of all time. The best non series movie of all time

I watched it today and it was super good! Watch it if you haven't!

Such an amazing movie! - ILoveGuineaPigs

37 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.

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

No way this should be in top 10! It is so funny you have to watch it.

Best movie I've ever seen

38 Wind River

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

39 Born in China
40 Monster Trucks

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!

Do you know why this movie touched my heart? So I try to avoid most of the animated movies Free birds, Frozen, Paranorman, The good dinosaur, Bambi, The lion king etc. Because there might be a parent missing or caught dead in those movies. In this movie, no. There are no dead parents in this movie. Creech found parents and they hugged him. I want to see this movie again! Enjoy! - Trollsfan536

Generic kids movie!

41 A Silent Voice

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

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

42 The Big Sick

Probably the best movie
In the list

43 Kingsman: The Golden Circle

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

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

44 Valerian & the City of a Thousand Planets

Kong: Skull Island & Alien: Covenant are masterpieces compared to this garbage! I rather watch that trash again than watch this mindless movie that chooses style over substance!

One of the cheapest theaters around me is West Boylston Cinema, and this is the only movie I want to see their. They play movies that are already off the big screens. This Friday we are getting Wonder Woman and Despicable Me 3 (Which I already saw), The only other action
moves playing here are Guardians 2 (Which I already watch on my brother's XBOX), Pirates 5 (Which I'm not interested in seeing, another money grab), Kidnap and Atomic Blonde (Which I can't see those because they are R and I'm 11.) And the only other family films playing their besides Despicable 3 are Cars 3 and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie ( Which I already saw both.) I have interest and anticipation in this. And I have heard that the 3D is excellent and is one of the best things about the film. UPDATE: ended up watching it on my dad's computer, not great but I enjoyed myself, and the visual effects were candy to the eye. 8/10 - Trollsfan536

This was a masterpiece! The acting was ok, but the special effects were so impressive. - darthvadern

45 Smurfs: The Lost Village

I saw this at my friend's house about a month ago, and... I don't know what to think. I mean the animation was nice, but the story was just predictable and uninspired. It's not bad (especially compared to something like The Emoji Movie) but ehhh 5.5/10 - ChiefMudkip

A adorable and fun film. I love it! - girlcool

This was a really good movie - Trollsfan536

46 A Taxi Driver

A poignant, powerful story about a taxi driver in Seoul who ferries a German journalist to Gwang-ju, and gets caught up in a revolution in which he becomes an unlikely hero.

This film has everything you could ask for. Action, comedy, drama, and strong social commentary.

On top of it, Song Kang-ho gives a powerhouse performance as Man-seob, the flawed but loveable and redeemable taxi driver. Of course, he's good in everything and this is no exception.

An incredible movie. You'd be sorry to miss it. - SourNote2014

What?! Go watch Scorsese's 1976 film starring Robert De Niro!

47 Phantom Thread
48 Alien: Covenant

Better than Ridley Scott's 1979 masterpiece Alien? I don't think so!

This is great

Alien 1 and 2 are better - Dvafan2

Haters gonna hate but this movie is really great. Besides awesome xenomorphs we got Neomorphs - another unique species. And yes, visuals were brilliant - PowerGirl

50 Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale

It's a sao movie I think it will be awesome like the show - ikerevievs

Successful financially AND critically. And as of March 2017, it's currently the highest-grossing anime film of this year. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Of course it's commercially successful. It's Sword Art Online. If a One Punch Man film was made then it would be the same thing. - Mcgillacuddy

While I can understand being financially successful doesn't solely determine the quality of the movie, I've actually seen a lot of positive reviews for the movie. I haven't seen the movie myself yet, but it really tells me that it's something that will please the fans and be a great watch that isn't just some cheap cash grab. Anyways, I like the point you make about commercial success. If any anime is popular, any anime movie based on the anime will do good. I'm just more pleasantly surprised by the warmer critical reception Ordinal Scale has gotten overall. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It actually got submitted to the list of animated movies that will be vying for the five nominee spots for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. It obviously won't put up a fight with Coco, but seeing SAO get considered for the Oscars really shows how great Ordinal Scale is. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
