As we wrap out the new year, I thought it would be apropos to list the top 10 best movies I've seen this year.
I do not want to see this movie.
If you like this movie, please know, I'm worried about you!
10) POWER RANGERS
We got a movie in 2017 with THE PROWLER!
Whoo boy! This was a hot mess of a movie. That being said, Charlize Theron made a super-fun, super-weird, action spy thriller. I swear someone made a list of spy and action tropes and said "Which one would you like to do Charlize?" And she said "Everyone!"
So, you know, good job!
6) The Hitman's Bodyguard
I am firmly in team Ryan Reynolds, even before he became Deadpool. He was the best part of Blade Trinity, was the best part of The Proposal (besides Betty White), and I even loved him in Two Guys, A Girl, and a Pizza Place. Add that to everyone's favorite golfer Samuel L. Jackson, and you have a fantastic team. I hope they do a hundred more movies. It is seriously a thing of beauty.
The man LOVES playing golf. Google it!
Or just enjoy that smile! Happy Samuel L. is good for what ails you!
The murder suspects include James Bond, Norman Bates, and Miss Daisy.
This movie is awesome!
2) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
I loved this movie. I saw it three times in theaters, and cried every time. There's such an amazing beauty and charm to this film. The cast is amazing, the visuals and editing are stunning, and I feel like James Gunn brought forth the best directed film of 2017.
Mise-en-scene is a film term that means "Everything that takes place in a scene". And, while the third act of IT falls a part, I firmly believe this film contains some of the best staged, directed, edited, and constructed scenes of any film of 2017. The kids in this film were FANTASTIC. Honestly, it's the fantastical and gritty reboot of Stand By Me that no one knew we wanted.
