Here’s a list of the movies I saw that came out in 2017. Some I saw at home, some on the plane and some at the theater, and in the case of the latter… Here’s the deal: I get to go to the movies when I have free time, so I just see whatever starts when I get there. This means I see a lot of junk, but I’m not complaining – going to the movies ROCKS.
TOP OF THE HEAP: All five of these movies get a recommendation from me. They are not ranked, they’re all great.
Three Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri
Blade Runner 2049
MEH: movies without huge flaws, but nothing special
Battle of the Sexes
King Arthur Legend of the Sword
Kong Skull Island
Beauty and the Beast
GOOD, NOT GREAT: people like these movies a lot more than i do
The Disaster Artist
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
The Big Sick
Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2
The Lego Batman Movie
Ingrid Goes West
PUT ME TO SLEEP:
All the Money in the World – the pace of the first act is so slow
The Post – they needed to make choices concerning what and who this movie is about and they didn’t. The first act is soooo slow.
Murder on the Orient Express – the movie comes to a grinding halt when the train does. It picks up a little at the climax.
The House – sooooooo terrible
Cure for Wellness
Shape of Water
Call me by Your name
The Killing of a Sacred Deer
Professor Marston and the Wonder Women
The Florida Project
I refuse to see The Greatest Showman: the man owned slaves and did terrible things to animals. He was not a champion of the oppressed – he was the opposite, he was an oppressor. If they made this movie about a fictional character, i probably would have went, but pretending a real person was something he wasn’t just isn’t the sort of movie that’s getting my money.
