What a year it's been for cinema. I know I say this every year, but this year feels a little different. I honestly believe we will look back at 2017 as a STRONG year for American cinema as a whole. There were a TON of duds, of course, most notably in the summer blockbuster season, but.... think about it for a second. We saw what is, in my opinion, the best piece of cinema from one of the great directors of our generation in Paul Thomas Anderson, (Phantom Thread) we saw the strongest entry into acclaimed director Edgar Wright's filmography, (Baby Driver) we saw visionary filmmaker Guillermo del Toro create his most ambitious and accessible film to date, (The Shape of Water) we witnessed one of the great sequels ever to be made from a man establishing himself as the best sci-fi director of the 21st century in Denis Villeneuve, (Blade Runner 2049) and we even saw a few people new to the director's chair give us some great cinema in Taylor Sheridan (Wind River) and my spirit animal, Greta Gerwig! (Lady Bird) All the while, Marvel dropped its strongest installment yet (and propelled indie director Taika Waititi into stardom in the process) with Thor: Ragnarok, and we're fortunate enough to still be able to witness Andy Serkis continue to pioneer the art of motion capture in War for the Planet of the Apes. Oh, and did I mention we saw yet another strong film from Christopher Nolan? (Dunkirk) What about the fact that we FINALLY got the best Star Wars film since Empire Strikes Back? No big deal. Average year, right? Ya. I think this is strongest overall year for cinema since I started this blog back in 2013. So many great films, and here's my best attempt to make a list about them. Ready? I sure am. Here are the best films of 2017!
For the individual reviews of the films mentioned, click on the pictures.
Honorable Mention: Wind River
Exhibit A for how you know 2017 was a great year for cinema? Wind River is merely an "Honorable Mention" on this list.This movie, the "unofficial" directorial debut from acclaimed writer Taylor Sheridan, (he directed a film back in 2011, Vile, that wasn't well-received so we'll pretend it didn't happen) Wind River was a nitty, gritty, edge-of-your seat western-style thriller with some fantastic visuals and great acting. There were a few caveats holding it back from true greatness, (like the forced romance between Olsen/Renner, who are merely 18 years apart in age) but it doesn't change the fact that this movie featured career performances from the two main leads, and the story is a wild one, to say the least. It came out waaaay back in August, which is probably why it didn't receive any love from the Academy, (OSCAR! You mean to tell me that Denzel Washington got a Best Actor nomination over Jeremy Renner? Sure, guys) but man. For what is usually an off-time for Hollywood, (August releases) this was a breath of fresh air, to say the least. And I think when people look back at the success of a man like Taylor Sheridan, this will definitely be included in the discussion.
Honorable Mention: Molly's Game
The other honorable mention on this list is the directorial debut from acclaimed screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Hard to believe this guy has been around since 1992 and has never actually directed a film. But, this movie is told exactly how you would expect an Aaron Sorkin film to play out: everyone knows everything at any given moment, and everyone is always smarter than everyone else. While it's not necessarily every viewer's cup of tea, it sure is mine so I couldn't help but love this flick. It also helps that pairing Idris Elba and Jessica Chastain, aka two of the sexiest people alive, was a GREAT idea. I would be totally OK with a film written by Sorkin that just has these two stars in a room talking/arguing. They make all their conversations look SO good, in every sense of the word. A few things held this back from being higher on the list, most notably the hastily written and shallow "Player X" character, but otherwise? This is 2017's smartest and sexiest film. If you're a fan of anything Sorkin has done in the past, you will probably like this one too.
10) The Disaster Artist
This one was really tough for me. Before the allegations against James Franco came out, this was an easy top 5 contender. It is a refreshing reminder of why I love cinema, and one of the more inspirational films I have ever seen. After all, The Disaster Artist is all about following your dreams, no matter how good or bad you may be at them. I love it! That message is pure beauty. And, it's also HILARIOUS. The story here is so hard-to-believe and so over-the-top, but it's so good that I actually went and saw it again the very next day. It WAS my "favorite" movie of the year. Until the allegations against James Franco arose.
I don't think it's fair to the rest of this crew to fault them for the allegations made against James Franco. Yes, Franco himself is dead to me, but should this movie be too? Initially, I was going to leave this film right where it was in the top 5, but....after more thought, Franco plays too big a role in this film to just ignore him entirely, and what he has done to women over the years is terrible. So, with that in mind, I put it at number 10 on the list. It's a great watch, no doubt. A film that successfully straddles the line of comedy and drama, and is a wonderful homage to the best "worst movie ever made" in The Room. I just wish James Franco wasn't a sexual predator that has terrorized women over the years. Those women's lives will never be the same, and neither should Franco's.
Ok, lightening the mood again. Hey, remember when we heard Warner Brothers was remaking It and got nervous? I know I did. After all, most reboots are disappointing at best, and given the fact that Warner Brothers was behind this one....I definitely wasn't too hopeful. Well, every once in a while a reboot can shock you, and It did just that. (And made boatloads of money for Warner Brothers in the process) It is a surprisingly strong film featuring a TERRIFYING rendition of Pennywise the DANCING Clown from Bill Skarsgård. He leads the charge in this film with his resonating performance of the clown, (that earned a place in my Fourth Annual Awesome Actors Awards as well, YA!) and there were a lot of good performances from The Loser's Club too! I did not think a studio like Warner Brothers would ok this much character development in their big-budget horror movie, but I'm glad they did. Well done, guys! Hopefully this shows studio execs that it's possible to make money off of big budget horror flicks, because we need more of these!
8) Baby Driver
Wow, there were a lot of great films in 2017. I freaking LOVED Baby Driver. The latest (and greatest) from acclaimed director Edgar Wright, this film is a heist movie that's also synced up to music for the vast majority of the flick. Everything is taken into account to achieve this, right down to doors opening/closing and even things like lights changing colors. I wish my life could be synced to the beat of whatever song I was listening to like this, because that would be pretty freaking awesome. Also, did I mention this film is great? It loses a bit of steam in the romance between Elgort and Lilly James, and it does feature Kevin Spacey, (though he has a relatively minor role so I think it's possible to forget about him here) but....man! It's nonstop, balls-to-the-wall action with over-the-top performances, all synced up to a FANtastic soundtrack. What's not to love? Need any more convincing on this one? Just check out the opening heist sequence, which happened to be my favorite movie moment of 2017.
7) The Shape of Water
We were fortunate enough to have several great sci-fi films this past year, and the latest from director Guillermo del Toro showed us just what one can do with CGI in 2017. The amphibious creature featured is an incredible example of motion capture, and was simply stunning to watch. Additionally the love story crafted is visually daring and wonderfully original, and its sold by one of the best performances of the year from Sally Hawkins. She is simply marvelous in the lead role, as she conveys an incredible amount of emotion through her hands and face while not being able to speak. This film also featured incredible production design, and a fantastic score from Alexandre Desplat. The movie pays homage to a lot of classic cinema, and the production design/score really added to this wonderful homage. This film is really spectacular. It received 13 Oscar nominations, and for good reason. The visionary pioneer Guillermo del Toro made his most accessible movie to date, (he has an impressive filmography, by the way) and it looks like he will have his first Oscar to boot for it. I highly recommend this one, especially if you are a fan of sci-fi.
6) Blade Runner 2049
I think there's a good argument to be made that Blade Runner 2049 will be one of the films that's "remembered" from 2017. Many even called it the best film of the year. Were it not for the major objectification of Ana de Armas, I may even agree with them. But, objectification of Armas aside, (I know that's the point of her character, but....it's 2017, and it's time for that to stop) this film is incredible. The highlight for me is the cinematography, which is EASILY the best cinematography I saw all year. It was breathtaking to see this film in a theater. And makes it even more of a shame that it under-performed at the box office. But, Academy, please: GIVE ROGER DEAKINS THE OSCAR FOR CINEMATOGRAPHY. He's only been nominated 14 times! UGH! Anyway, the colors, lighting, and cinematography alone are more than worth your time, and it tells a boldly original sci-fi story while still being a sequel. (Officially, at least) Also, it features one of my favorite scores of the year from Hans Zimmer, which adds so much depth and complexity to this film. Freaking brilliant, man. Oh, and Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford are paired together. What's not to love there? Director Denis Villeneuve has crafted a true masterpiece for the genre if there ever was one, with breathtaking visuals and a wonderfully original story.
5) Call Me by Your Name
How I love this movie. Call Me by Your Name, the latest from director Luca Guadagnino, (first thing I've seen from him but to say I'm sold is something of an understatement) is a beautiful, charming, and heartbreaking love story that took me on more of an emotional roller coaster than any other film this year. It's shot on location in northern Italy in the early 80's and it makes use of both its setting and time period SO well. The production design of this film was probably my favorite for the year, as it felt like every choice on the set was meticulous and deliberate. Mesmerizing is the word that comes to mind. Additionally, the music choices here are superb. Using a song from The Psychedelic Furs was brilliant, and it gave us one of the greatest gifs ever of Armie Hammer dancing. Sufjan Stevens original songs are incredible, too! His main song here, "Mystery of Love," is easily my favorite original song in film in 2017. There's no doubt this is the best period film of the year, and well worth the watch if you want to see a truly complex and mesmerizing love story. Oscar, stop looking at the gif of Armie Hammer dancing, man. We have work to do!
4) Lady Bird
Coming in at number 4 is one of the best coming-of-age films I have ever seen. Lady Bird is the product of the incredible Greta Gerwig, who comes out swinging (to say the least) in her directorial debut. This film is amazing. It's a beautiful coming-of-age flick featuring a relatable and intricate relationship between the two women leads of this film, played beautifully by Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf. It's quiet, it's intimate, and it's executed masterfully in the hands of its director. Oh, and it's funny! I was busting my gut laughing on more than one occasion, then a few moments later I'd find myself getting emotional. Oh, and Timothée Chalamet/Lucas Hedges are amazing as Lady Bird's boyfriends. Talk about three young, great actors in this movie all at the same time. Who knows? Maybe people will look back at this film as a film of epic proportions 20 years from now when these 3 are some of the biggest names in the business. And Greta Gerwig better be right there with them! Anyway, it's one of the best coming-of-age films I've seen in a long time, so if that's the kind of film you're into, make the time to see this. Even if you aren't, you should still find this somewhere! I'm sure it will be easily accessible relatively soon on streaming services. Check it out!
The Best Comedy Outside the Top 10 Was....
2017 was yet another bad year for American comedies, however there was one that really stood out. The Big Sick comes from comes from the comedian Kumail Nanijiani and now wife, Emily V. Gordon. It's a crazy love story that's almost impossible to believe, but the incredible story of how Nanijiani and Gordon fell in love is something right out of the movies. These dramatic events are told exceptionally well, with a lot of good humor littered throughout. The themes investigated here are very profound, from the world of arranged marriages Kumail and his family deal with to the idea of dying while your still young to losing someone and trying to reconnect with them and a whole lot more. There's a well executed story-within-a-story here too as Kumail connects with his (at the time ex) girlfriend's parents while she's in a coma, who are played wonderfully by Ray Romano and Holly Hunter. A story like this usually doesn't work. It usually bites off more than it can chew. But it's executed so well that it even earned itself a surprising (but deserved) Oscar nomination, and is EASILY the best comedy of 2017 too.
The Best Summer Blockbuster Outside the Top 10 was....
2017 was a BAD year for the big summer blockbuster. In fact, I'd go as far as to say it was the worst year for it since I started writing this blog. War for the Planet of the Apes, however, earned this award. If nothing else than for the fact that what this film series is revolutionary. The incredible motion capture achievements aside, I had a lot of problems with this film. Most notably the fact that this film almost felt like a bottle episode in a TV series. "Hey guys! It's time for us to go to WAR! .......with this one rogue military outpost." However, what it's doing within the world of motion capture is beyond incredible, and we are fortunate enough to witness the pioneer of this field deliver arguably his best performance yet. The legendary Andy Serkis portrays the lead ape, Caesar, and he what he does with the character, especially when you watch the behind-the-scenes footage, has to be seen to be believed, and its buoyed by an exceptional character arc. Even though the pacing is VERY slow, and at the end of the day not a whole lot happens to further the events of this franchise, it is still well worth the watch for the motion capture alone.
The Best Action Flick Outside the Top 10 Was....
This one was kind of a no-brainer. As probably any action fan knows, the John Wick franchise is at the top of the world, solidified by its strong latest installment, John Wick: Chapter 2. Once again Keanu Reeves shines as a fantastic action star, and pairing him (albeit briefly) with a screen-chewing Laurence Fishburne for the first time since The Matrix franchise was SO much fun to watch. "Somebody PLEASE get. This. Man. A. Gun." AH! I LOVE IT. This time around we also got a lot of world-building from the franchise, which was quite interesting! And....when we got to the action setpieces? Brilliant. How John Wick's action scenes are shot continues to be the modern pillar for the genre. ALL ACTION SCENES NEED TO BE SHOT LIKE THIS. No shaky-cam. Wideshots-a-plenty so we can actually see the action, mixed with subtle choreography to stage the whole thing. It's really not that hard! Other franchises are picking up on this, but still have a long way to go. Fortunately, though, the Boogeyman is here to save the day. I can't wait for the next one!
The Best Sci-Fi Film Outside the Top 10 Was...
Yay! I get to talk about Star Wars for once! If you want my in-depth thoughts, check out my review in the pic. Here, though, I just want to address all the haters out there, so to those who are disappointed by this film.....it is so rare to see anyone be given such free rein over a franchise as director Rian Johnson was for Episode VIII. That doesn't happen in modern Hollywood. (Looks at the clusterbomb that is the DC Universe) This film covers so much ground in such a short amount of time, and manages to feel so different than any other film in this franchise. Would you rather JJ Abrams just give us another version of Episode VI for the finale like he did for The Force Awakens? I know I would take something unique and original 10 times out of 10. Also, can we just marvel at how freaking beautiful the final big battle on the mineral planet is?? That sequence was one of the most visually stunning sequences I saw in all of cinema last year! Honestly, I'm quite sad this franchise is being handed back to JJ Abrams. Rian Johnson delivered EASILY the best Star Wars film since Episode V, and if he was allowed to finish his vision I think we'd have something truly special on our hands. Don't let the haters get you down, man.
The Best Horror Film Outside the TOp 10 Was....
Speaking of genres that did not have a good 2017.....the horror genre continues to have a rough go of it overall. While it did have its most successful film in YEARS, there were a lot of attempts at original concepts the fell flat on their faces, and even more tired installments to pre-existing franchises. (Hey, remember when the first Conjuring movie came out?) However, one film did stand above the rest, and that was the horror-slasher-comedy Happy Death Day. This film utilizes the Groundhog Day trope of reliving the same day over and over to get a lot of slasher-style deaths and mixes it with a lot of suspense out of the horror genre's pocketbook, then sprinkles on some humor for good measure. The final cupcake we ended up with was shockingly good! (Ya, making puns about the movie over here, no big deal) I really enjoyed the all-out performance from Jessica Rothe, and that freaking pig mask, man. That freaking pig mask. There were a lot of issues with the film, but it's also very accessible so if you're looking to get into the slasher/horror genres, this is as good a place to start as any.
The Best Superhero Film Was....
2017 was possibly the strongest year yet for Disney's Marvel enterprise. While the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel left something to be desired, the studio partnered with Sony to (finally!) deliver a strong new installment in the Spider-Man franchise, and it dropped arguably its best movie yet within its own universe with the hilarious, stylistic, and bombastic Thor: Ragnarok. Marvel took a huge gamble on little-known director Taika Waititi to revitalize what was previously the weakest character in their franchise, and from the first amazing trailer for this film we knew we were in for something awesome. Right we were. Thor: Ragnarok takes the off-the-cuff humor Marvel is known for and amps it up to eleven all while featuring a strong villainess played by Cate Blanchett. The movie shows some great relationships that are developed over its runtime, and it is just a blast to watch. Oh, and Jeff Goldblum screen-chewing to no end is pretty awesome, too. The planet we spend most of the film on is great, Thor and Hulk and Loki and Valkyrie are awesome, and FINALLY we get a film that uses "Immigrant Song" in a great way. Props to Taika Waititi for completely changing the direction of this character for the better!
The Best Film to Debut on a Streaming Service was....
Streaming services continue to be more and more prominent every year with their original content, so I figured it's about time I give them a shoutout on this list. There was a lot of BAD films to come out on these platforms (cough cough Bright cough cough) but Mudbound towered above the rest. The film features a delicate friendship between two WW2 vets (pictured above and played by Garrett Hedlund and Jason Mitchell) after they return home to rural Mississippi. As you can guess, people don't take too kindly to that sort of thing. Jonathan Banks is at the center of it all, as he portrays a vile and racist father to Hedlund and his brother, played by Jason Clarke. The film did have some shortcomings, most notably in Carey Mulligan's character, but the friendship between Hedlund and Mitchell was heartbreaking to watch, as was the end result of this dark and gritty film. The ties to modern systemic racism are very prevalent, but also subtle, which makes it that much more impactful. It's available to watch on Netflix right now, and I highly recommend checking it out.
The Best Animated Film I Saw was.....
I'll openly admit I watched only a few animated films in 2017 as the genre (least in America) continues to get worse and worse. However, just because American animation is slipping doesn't mean it's slipping across the big pond. Your Name. became the highest grossing Japanese anime ever last year, and after watching it I can see why. Its story is bold and unorthodox, and its visuals are breathtaking. The story itself is beautiful and heartbreaking, and there's some really great voice-acting to boot. If you are looking for an entry into the crazy world of anime, Your Name. is definitely it. And, even if you aren't, I'd say it's still worth a watch. It's quite criminal that the Academy did not nominate this for Best Animated Feature. PLEASE GET THE BOSS BABY OUT OF MY LIFE, OSCAR!
The Biggest Surprise In Film Was.....
You knew I was going to talk about this film sooner or later! While I wasn't the biggest fan of Get Out, (it's good, but was distractedly predictable for me) no film sparked a cultural conversation in 2017 as much as this did. Not to mention it was the most profitable film of the year. But the themes investigated here sparked a national conversation about subtle systemic racism, and it all came from.....Jordan Peele? OSCAR! Is that right? This is the same Jordan Peele from Comedy Central's Key & Peele? Seriously? Ok, then. Also, I love the cast of this movie as there were a lot of lesser-known stars thrown into the crux of Hollywood elite because of this film. The story of how its lead, Daniel Kaluuya, was cast is fascinating. Apparently Jordan Peele saw Kaluuya's episode of Black Mirror one night on Netflix and decided right then and there that he had to have him for this movie. And now he's an Oscar-nominated actor. I am a sucker for stories like that! So, even though I wasn't the biggest fan of this film, it's still pretty amazing to see a little crew make a movie with no budget that goes on to gross over $150 million domestically and net four Oscar nominations. We need more stories like that!
These last 3 films all earned perfect 10s on my blog. First off is the latest (and greatest) from master director Christopher Nolan. Dunkirk is a technical masterpiece and one of the most visually stunning films I have ever seen. FINALLY Mad Max: Fury Road has some company in this department. The film is shot almost entirely on IMAX 70 mm cameras, which made for some pretty epic wideshots on the sliver screen, particularly in the dogfights. The dogfights of Dunkirk are the best I've ever seen, and Nolan had to do some pretty inventive jerry-rigging to get these ginormous (and expensive) 70 mm cameras up on and around the planes to film these sequences, and that sort of dedication to the craft is what separates this piece from the rest. On top of that, the sounds are incredible. The sound design of Dunkirk is some of the best I've ever heard, and Hans Zimmer delivered a tense score that used a clever sound illusion to help up the ante for every scene. I hope you got the chance to see this one on the silver screen, because it is certainly an experience I won't soon forget.
2) I, Tonya
The most culturally relevant film of the year, I, Tonya is the story of Tonya Harding's famous figure skating career, as told by those who lived it. The film makes use of a unique interview-style of storytelling, which is perfect here because the two main accounts of her career (Tonya herself and her husband Jeff Gillooly) vary WILDLY, to say the least. I loved it! It made for a crazy ride as characters would seemingly change personalities from scene-to-scene depending on which interviewee that scene is based on. The editing needed to be executed flawlessly to achieve this, and flawlessly executed it was. I, Tonya also puts on an acting clinic as Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan, Julianne Nicholson, Paul Walter Hauser, and the one and only Allison Janney all put in some of their best work. Janney's all-out portrayal of the vile LaVona Golden was the highlight for me, as this character was over-the-top crazy, but Margot Robbie's portrayal of Tonya Harding was also exceptional. The movie is a BLAST to watch with an amazing soundtrack underneath it, and it's also HILARIOUS. The joke of the year is buried in this film. You'll know it when you see it. It's a damn shame this film didn't receive more love from the Academy, (it only netted three Oscar nominations....Darkest Hour, meanwhile, netted SIX. LOOK WHAT YOU DID, OSCAR.) because not only is it one of the best films of the year, its cultural message in the era of #MeToo could not be more on point.
While I, Tonya and its writer, Steven Rogers, doesn't take a side in answering the question of, "Did Tonya do it?" I think its primary message is, "Does it matter?" Given the circumstances of Tonya Harding's life, did we, the public, really need to vilify her for what she may, or may not, have done? As the #MeToo movement has shown, men were allowed to roam free with disgusting power complexes and their repulsive predatory behavior that we hardly blinked an eye at until now, but we had no problem destroying the reputation of Tonya Harding back in the 90s. This is definitely the question that you ponder over at the completion of I, Tonya, and that is why there could not be a more culturally relevant film for 2017. Check it out for that reason alone.
1) Phantom Thread
Here we are, folks. The best film of 2017 is Phantom Thread. The latest from arguably the best director of the last two decades in Paul Thomas Anderson, Phantom Thread is the simple yet elegant story of the relationship between its leads, a renowned British fashion designer, Reynolds, and his young muse, Alma. These two are played masterfully by the great Daniel Day-Lewis (widely considered to be the greatest method actor in the history of cinema) and the newcommer Vicky Krieps. It has EASILY the best performances of the year, as Daniel Day-Lewis is his usual, incredible self and Krieps proves to be every bit his equal. Daniel Day-Lewis has said this is his last role, but as one rides out into the sunset, another rises to take his place in Vicky Krieps. P.T. Anderson's phenomenal casting of this little-known Luxembourg-born actress makes this film spectacular. The writing behind her was incredible as well. She is such an intriguing character, and the arc she goes through is one of the best I've ever seen.
The relationship of Reynolds and Alma is the centerpiece of this film, and to say it's wild is something of an understatement. This film is from Paul Thomas Anderson, which naturally means it's going to be nuts in one way or another, but here the "nuts" aspect of it is very subtle, and fits in perfectly with their power struggle. That's what Phantom Thread is all about: the intoxicating power struggle between these two. I was completely absorbed by it. Also in the fray is freaking Lesley Manville, portraying Reynolds's sister, Cyril. She proves to be just as much of a boss as Alma is, and by the end of the film you realize that, even though Reynolds is a prominent (and powerful) fashion designer, the women of his life are the ones with the real power. Pretty relevant for this day and age too, if I dare say!
On top of some of the best acting I've ever seen, the score of this film is HAUNTING and beautiful, and deserves a shoutout. Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood composed easily my favorite score of the year, and it compliments this film perfectly, inducing several goosebump-worthy moments along the way. Phantom Thread is easily the best film of 2017, and I think it is also the most approachable film to date from its acclaimed director, so I strongly recommend it. Only time will tell if it will be held in the same regard as 2007's There Will be Blood, but, given the fact that There Will be Blood is widely considered to be the best film of the 21st century, I'd say it's high enough praise just to be in the conversation. This film is still in theaters, and I cannot recommend enough going and seeing it on the silver screen. No doubt it's one we'll still be talking about 20 years from now.
Well, there you have it! My best films of 2017. Hope you enjoyed the journey as much as I did! I look forward to seeing what 2018 brings. Hopefully it'll be every bit as good as this past year, right? One thing's for sure: 2018 has some big shoes to fill. Thank you SO MUCH for reading, everyone. I am incredibly grateful for you! I really hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I enjoy writing them.
See you lovely people very soon with my recap of the 2018 Academy Awards. DEUCES!

Hey how are you doing? Fantastic. So when you get done here you should go over to Facebook and "Like" Enter the Movies for the latest and greatest on all things movies. If you don't, Puss In Boots will be sad. We wouldn't want that now would we?
I believe you've gotta have fun in everything you do. Otherwise, what's the point?
