Best Movies of 2017

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 Logan Product Image

This movie is a masterpiece. Hugh Jackman was amazing. I also loved the western atmosphere. Best Marvel movie in my opinion. Yes even better than Infinity War and Endgame.

Logan is the most emotional superhero movie ever made. Also I loved the whole western theme and the Last of Us similarities. My favourite superhero movie ever.

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.

Logan is far better than Iron Man. Robert Downeys's Iron Man portrayal is so overrated. Hugh Jackman as Logan is the best onscreen superhero portrayal in my opinion.

2 Spider-Man: Homecoming Spider-Man: Homecoming Product Image

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.

Tom Holland and Zendaya are better than Toby Maguire and annoying Kirsten Dunst.

Actually it is one of the worst MCU movies but the best Spidey movie since Spiderman 2.

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)

3 Thor: Ragnarok Thor: Ragnarok Product Image

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

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.

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.

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)

4 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Product Image

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.

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

Hooray! Disney did it again. It may have been an improvement since the original, plus it became another successful blockbuster. You will keep laughing and laughing with excitement. GOTG 2 has a great amount of slapstick humor, superb special effects, and Michael Bay styled explosions. Two thumbs up!

5 Star Wars: The Last Jedi Star Wars: The Last Jedi Product Image

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

This movie was bad. The whole sequel trilogy is overrated trash.

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

6 Dunkirk Dunkirk Product Image

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.

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.

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

7 Wonder Woman Wonder Woman Product Image

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

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

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

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

8 Baby Driver Baby Driver Product Image

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

Brilliant movie. Has good acting, awesome action scenes, an epic opening, likable characters, good humor, and an all star cast. Should be higher.

9 Get Out Get Out Product Image

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

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

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!

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

10 War for the Planet of the Apes War for the Planet of the Apes Product Image

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.

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.

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.

? , #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

11 Coco Coco Product Image

I love this movie. It was so cute. I actually thought I wasn't going to like it at first

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

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!

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

12 Blade Runner 2049 Blade Runner 2049 Product Image

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

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

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

13 The Lego Batman Movie The Lego Batman Movie Product Image

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.

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

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.

While not as enjoyable as the Lego Movie to me personally, I still think this is a great animated superhero comedy, a genre that really doesn't show up much in movie release calendars. The humor is a bit more for kids, unfortunately, but those who enjoy a movie unnecessarily stuffed with pop-culture references, like myself, will definitely love this one.

14 It It Product Image

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

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!

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

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

15 Kong: Skull Island Kong: Skull Island Product Image

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.

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

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

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.

16 Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Product Image

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

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

Should be number one.

17 Beauty and the Beast Beauty and the Beast Product Image

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

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.

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.

18 The Shape of Water The Shape of Water Product Image

This one should be number one

Just, the movie was amazing

19 Despicable Me 3 Despicable Me 3 Product Image

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.

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

20 Justice League Justice League Product Image

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

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

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

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.

21 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Product Image

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

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.

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

I can't believe I doubted this

22 Lady Bird Lady Bird Product Image

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 Disaster Artist The Disaster Artist Product Image

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.

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.

Was entertaining and interesting. I recommend

How's this not so high up?

24 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Product Image

"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.

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

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

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

25 Cars 3 Cars 3 Product Image

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!

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.

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!

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
