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 including Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Logan.
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 and phenomenal.

I thought the film had a very Western look and feel to it, which I thought was a 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 installments.

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 major improvement on the last Spider-Man movies. This movie is 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, whose 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 Spider-Man movie I have seen personally. Tom Holland is a good Spider-Man, 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 in 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, Spider-Man: 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 doesn't have: a 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, as 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, nor was Sony.

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 in itself.

How do people find this movie confusing? It's just about Luke training Rey because Rey discovers that she has Force powers she never expected. The only problem with the movie is that it focuses more on the Resistance than the Jedi, and Vice Admiral Holdo. But it had great fight scenes, a simple plot, and good direction. I don't even think Rose Tico is a bad character compared to what fans say.

6 Wonder Woman

First off, it begins with ominous, lugubrious music and a voice-over of "Darkness," accompanied by an aerial view of the Louvre that seems full of sinister portent. I gave a shudder of dread. Are we really going to 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 continuity was established, a mysterious package is received from Bruce Wayne by 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

7 Baby Driver

This movie was a blast, with the best soundtrack since Guardians of the Galaxy, and it 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 in everything, deserves to be number 1, and 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 superhero 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. 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 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 those most reluctant against the horror genre, can enjoy.

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

10 Coco

I couldn't really tell that this was going to be a rip-off of 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 the 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.

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 number 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 in the top 3. Our grandchildren will watch this movie like we do "The Matrix" today.

12 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 well-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 throughout his entire career, right? Let's hope.

This is a great movie! It should be in the top 10! It is not only a great war movie but also a great sequel to the two previous installments.

Number 20? Come on, man. This is going to be the best Planet of the Apes movie. It is even one of the best of 2017. And it has very good reviews. It should be at least in the top 5.

13 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 bothersome, since the main humor came from the clever dialogue. This movie gets a 9/10 from me.

14 It

The remake is better than the 1990 IT. Pennywise looks better, the deaths are better, and it is scarier, 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 remakes that surpassed 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 a spin-off of King Kong, but this movie needs to be higher on top tens because the storyline is great. 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!

16 Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

The characters in this movie are amazing.

Every single character they create makes you feel empathy for them straight away.

17 The Shape of Water
18 Beauty and the Beast

This movie is great. It's 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 due to 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 Gandalf 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 mantle clock, Cogsworth, in this version.

19 Despicable Me 3

Gru is back in action with style, but this time there's an added bonus: he has a brother. Yes, his brother's name is Dru. Both brothers share the same face and are voiced by the same actor. One is an adoptive father of three orphans, while the other is a filthy rich uncle equipped with expensive equipment, 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 an over 200 million dollar budget. Transformers: The Last Knight was a joke to the film industry.

One fun thing about DM3 is the nostalgia it evokes 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 by Eurythmics.

Also, the jokes were over the top. How in the world could they get away with those raucous scenes while it's PG-rated? I think the screenwriters must have had plans to push the envelope to make this animated film earn money. Seriously, it's like 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. But if the Despicable Me films are so great, why are there so many bad guys in the world right now? Obviously, it would have been nice to serve six months doing community service mowing lawns rather than fight psychopathic mass murderers and thieves in a maximum security prison.

One more thing, where were the three minions I forgot to mention? 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 theaters, 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 start to finish. James was amazing! The recreation of The Room scenes was top-notch. Fast-paced, comical, and even touching at times.

Entertaining and interesting. I recommend it.

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 masterpiece, 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 favorite DC superheroes, so it's awesome to see them.

Now sure, some people will argue that it's a bit rushed, but I didn't mind it too much. Yes, Steppenwolf is terrible as he's just a Thanos wannabe with no intimidation, but overall, I loved it a lot.

22 Lady Bird
23 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 that 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 me 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.

24 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

It's been a while since I last watched any Pirate movie, but this one was perfect enough. It may not have the exact quality of the previous sequels, but it still has the right blend of comedy and action. I would recommend everyone to watch it.

I don't understand why it got bad reviews.

I thoroughly enjoyed it despite the messy plot.

This movie is hilarious. While I enjoyed the first four movies more, this is still awesome. It has great special effects, and the execution scenes were the best part of the movie. Jack's lines at that part are hilarious.

25 John Wick: Chapter 2
