The Top Ten
1 Dunkirk

I've seen clips of this movie, and it will totally be nominated for Best Cinematography. The movie looks beautiful and very well shot! Definitely going to win those Oscars! I still need to see it...

I guarantee you that this movie is going to be nominated for Best Visual Effects, Best Cinematography, and Best Director at the Oscars. It might even win all three.

The previews for this were outstanding. They make you feel like you were really in the movie's setting.

2 Coco

So much detail was put into The Land of the Dead in Coco. Thought The Book of Life's Land of the Dead was detailed and artistic? You haven't seen anything yet. Coco's iteration of The Land of the Dead completely surpasses that.

Every building in Coco is detailed and accounted for with great attention to texture, rendering, color, etc. I think it goes without saying Pixar really outdid themselves here.

I saw this today and it totally deserved a 10/10 from me because every aspect of the movie was amazing. The animation is beautiful, and the scene where Miguel enters the Land of the Dead was mind-blowingly fantastic.

All the settings are unique and beautiful. This movie is a must-see!

3 Blade Runner 2049

I watched the trailers and a clip for it. It looks very well shot camera-wise and just awesome. I haven't watched the original Blade Runner, so I haven't watched this yet.

4 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

The CGI and set design in both GoTG 1 and 2 look fantastic. It gives the movie a very fun and space-type tone!

5 The LEGO Batman Movie

Whoever the animators are behind this and The Lego Movie are just fantastic. The animation style is made to look like real stop-motion Lego when it is, in fact, CGI. Real Lego would take too long. It just shows how creative the animators were!

6 Baby Driver

I'm going to watch this movie this week for sure. My dad got it on DVD, and from the trailers and a spoiler-free review I watched, this movie looks very neat camera-wise!

Yep, I watched the movie and it is definitely one of the best movies I've seen this whole year!

7 It

The camera work and costume design of Pennywise really make this movie have that creepy, scary tone.

8 Cars 3

It's Pixar, so of course it's beautifully animated!

9 Logan

I saw half of this movie. It was very well shot and the set designs look great!

10 Beauty and the Beast

I didn't like this movie that much, but the sets and most of the CGI look nice.

The Contenders
11 Thor: Ragnarok

Needs to be number one. This movie was full of action and was really funny.

12 Justice League
13 John Wick Chapter 2
14 My Little Pony
15 Spider-Man: Homecoming

I would put this as an honorable mention because some of the fight scenes were awesome, but the CGI was just okay. Still my favorite superhero film of the year.

16 Wonder Woman

This movie had terrible CGI and green screen (like really bad!), but most of the sets looked nice.

17 Wind River
18 Despicable Me 3
19 Valerian & the City of a Thousand Planets
20 Saban's Power Rangers
21 Batman vs. Two-Face
22 Smurfs: The Lost Village
23 Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
