Top 10 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

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.

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)

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.

3 Thor: Ragnarok

Way better than Logan, Spiderman Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, Wonder Woman, Kong Skull Island, It, Dunkirk, and War for the Planet of the Apes. One of the funniest movies ever and one of the best movies ever.

#21 only, really! This is the best movie of the year (yes I just said that). as much as I loved Despicable Me 3, there is one thing this has that that one dosen't have, MUCH better soundtrack! I love Michael Jackson's Bad, but this is even better, let's not forget the sexy Hela and the hilarious Korg.

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.

4 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.

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.

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

Can people just give this movie a chance. I'm a Star Wars fan and this was great. I don't just like it because it's "Star Wars". Episodes 1 and 2 were utter crap. The Last Jedi had full potential to itself. And how do people find this movie confusing? It's just about Luke training Rey because Rey discovers that she had Force powers she never expected. The only problem with the movie is that it just focuses on the Resistance more than the Jedi, and Vice Admiral Holdo.But it had great fight scenes, simple plot, and good direction. I don't even think Rose Tico is a bad character compared to what fans say.

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. 3) Luke's behavior. I don't' remember anyone complaining about the fact that Yoda and Obi-wan were different from before and that they didn't help the rebellion. Luke was destroyed, he had to kill Ben because it was too late. When he was about to kill Vader he could see the force in him so that's why he didn't kill him. 4) Holdo not telling her plan to Poe. Come on this one is easy, just analyze this. It was revealed that somehow the first order tracked the rebellion in their light speed jump, well that means that probably there's a traitor right? So how could she tell her plan if there's possibly a traitor that could inform the first order?!. 5) Luke's death. People are mad because luke died and didn't really fight, and also there were some unknown force powers. Ok, in every famous franchise a new trick has always been included to the franchise, that's not new, and making luke not fighting in the final showdown makes it something new and a surprise that was difficult to add in this franchise... more

6 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

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

7 Baby Driver

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

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

8 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.

9 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

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

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

10 Coco

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.

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!

The Contenders
11 Blade Runner 2049

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.

12 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.

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

13 War for the Planet of the Apes

#12? Below Justice League and Episode VIII which aren't out yet? Really?

A much better war film than Dunkirk, I thought. The characters are incredibly written, and the CGI is once again astounding. In fact, I think it's the best trilogy ever made. This HAS to win Andy Serkis the Oscar he has deserved through his entire career, right? Let's hope.

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

14 It

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!

2017 was an amazing year for horror/suspense movies. It is one of the ramake that outpassed the original. The movie with a running time of 2:15 hours is just perfect. The casting is amazing and I wish the second movie will be as good or better

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

15 Kong: Skull Island

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.

Guess what? This King Kong movie will knock your socks off! This one has a mix of classic rock songs, top notch special effects, and thrills all at once! Watch this 1970s style sci-fi action flick with your friends! Watch Kong go all bananas all over again!

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

16 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!

Ian McKellen is a real scene stealer in this version. His iconic Gandlalf quote has a new meaning now.

"A wizard is never late nor is he early he arrives precisely when he means to". That's because he is the mantel clock Cogsworth in this version.

Disney used $300,000 dollars for this movie. And on the first day, they already had paid the bills! This movie is basically spectacular! Good job, Disney.

I love the new story especially.

17 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.

18 The Shape of Water
19 Despicable Me 3

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 rated? I think the screenwriters must have had other plans to push the envelope to make this animated film earn money. Seriously, it's like I'm watching a kids' version of Throw Momma From The Train all over again.

Yeah, we may have seen Steve Carell's character Gru progress from a criminal into a hero. If the Despicable Me films are so great, why is there so many bad guys in the world right now? Obviously, it would have been nice to serve 6 months doing community service mowing lawns rather than fight psychopathic mass murderers and thieves at a maximum security prison.

One more thing, were there the 3 minions I forgot to mention about? What happened to Kevin, Stuart, and Bob?! Those yellow denizens made me laugh and laugh. I thought the 2015 Minions was just as good as DM3. I don't know which one to pick.

20 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.

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

21 Justice League

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!

Not nearly as bad as people say it is. I myself thought it was quite thrilling and very entertaining. The Flash and Aquaman are my favourite DC superheroes so it's awesomne to see them. Now sure, some people will argue that it's a bit rushed, but I didn't mind it too much and yes, Steppenwolf is terrible as he's just a Thanos wannabe with no intimidation, but overall I loved it a lot

I thought it was a bad movie coming from the critics, but I was forced to watch it because of my kid, but hey! it wasn't that bad, it is good actually and I kinda like it... I find it better than Thor Ragnarok, but it's just my opinion...

22 Cars 3

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!

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.

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

23 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).

24 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

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

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.

25 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.

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

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
