The BEST Films of 2017Edit
1) Get Out: I loved the twist of the movie in part because I wasn't expecting it. It is truly sinister in some scenes, especially when it comes to the extent of the Armitage Family's depravity. The acting was also great, but I wouldn't consider it the best at social commentary.
2) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Several awesome scenes, and Ego was one of the best villains of the MCU by far. It's pretty disturbing how evil this immortal Celestial truly is, what with siring several children and then killing them if they hadn't shown traits of his powers.
3) Spider-Man: Homecoming: Again, the villain was great. He had an understandable motivation for what he was doing, and the moments where the Vulture slowly began to figure out that Peter was Spider-Man was truly intense.
4) It: My favorite book from Stephen King is done the right justice. It was creepy, the acting was good, and Skarsgard could really give Tim Curry a run for his money. Am anticipating Part 2. And thank god for the meme-tastic dance.
5) War for the Planet of the Apes: Despite the misleading title, I loved the internal conflict that Caesar felt. While he hated the Colonel for killing his wife and son, he did not go down the same path that Koba did.
6) The Last Jedi: It has its flaws, but I loved this film for showing that the Force was a continually evolving phenomena, and the action sceens always had me on the edge of my seat. I also loved how it went against expectations and shows that you don't have to be a Skywalker or a Kenobi in order to not only be a Force user, but to be special.
7) Wonder Woman: The origin story for Diana was simply interesting. I loved the interactions between her and her love interest, and her cluelessness when it came to the world. Ares was also a slight improvement on bad guys from the DCEU. This film is proof that Warner Brothers can make good movies if they put their minds to it.
8) Thor: Ragnarok: The scenery was amazing. Hela was also a great villain, though I wish more of her backstory was shown. Regardless, she proved to be a formidable foe and it took the APOCALYPSE to take her out.
9) The Shape of Water: A love story between a mute woman and a fishman. The plot of the movie was imaginative and the effects were visually amusing. I also liked the bonding between Elisa and the Asset (or fishman). The main villain, though, is your stereotypical bad guy with no redeeming traits.
10) Logan: Loved the moments between Wolverine and his "daughter." It was also very emotional. Ultimately a beautiful way of saying farewell to Hugh Jackman's Wolverine.
