2017 has been a year when great things happened and bad things should be worth forgetting about. The movies of 2017 are no different, even concerning that some films might be Oscar-nominated.

10. Dunkirk.

Dunkirk is based on a true story and has incredible action, the story is interesting, the acting is incredible, and Christopher Nolan knocks it out of the park with this epic. Though it’s a favorite, there are two major flaws, but I can’t say what they are because they would be spoilers.



9.  Spiderman: Homecoming.

This is the first comic-based movie and a good story. The acting is amazing, especially Michael Keaton as the Vulture. On top of that the score is amazing, the action is great, and it ties into the Marvel Cinematic Universe really well. The only two flaws were that the other villains in the movie are lackluster and there’s a weird opening that leads to a weird timeline in the MCU.


8.  Get Out.

 Get Out is a thriller and one of my favorite movies of the year because it’s story is really interesting, the acting is incredible, and the comedy is funny. It’s unsettling in its creepier moments; the story is great, I cried during one moment of the movie, and the ending is exciting. I can’t talk about my one major flaw with the movie because it’s a spoiler.



7. Split is my seventh favorite movie of 2017. Split is intense, similar to Get Out, with unsettling creepier moments. The acting is great, with James McAvoy delivering his best performance of his career and the twist is very unexpected and great at the end. Revealing the one flaw would be a spoiler.



6. Another comic book movie, Wonder Woman. 

Wonder Woman’s story is empowering, and the acting is great, the action is great. Wonder Woman’s theme song is kick butt, and there was one moment I cried during the movie. My one flaw with this movie, is similar with Spiderman: Homecoming, the villains are lackluster.



5.  Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

This movie is a very divisive movie in this iconic science fiction franchise. The acting is great, especially from Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, and Adam Driver being the standouts. The story is amazing, the action is great, the score is great, and I appreciate the direction director Rian Johnson took the franchise. My only flaw with this movie would have to be concerning Benicio del Toro’s useless character, DJ.


4. My fourth favorite movie this year would be the most original movie I’ve seen this year, Baby Driver.

Baby Driver’s story is great, the music is great, the acting is amazing, with Ansel Elgort delivering his best performance, the action is great, and the ending is satisfying. My one critique of the movie is that I wish one actor, Jon Bernthal, had a bigger role in the movie.



3. Wonder.

The inspiring story of Auggie Pullman is great, the acting is great, the makeup, and hairstyling is great, and there were a couple of moments I cried during the movie. I have no flaws with this movie.     




2. My second favorite movie of the year would be the movie to round up a solid trilogy, War for the Planet of the Apes.

War for the Planet of the Apes’s story is amazing,the acting is amazing, especially from Andy Serkis’s  motion capture work as Caesar. The action is amazing and the ending is satisfying; I cried at the end of the movie. I have no flaws with this movie.



1. Logan. 

The comic book movie does everything right, from having an incredible story, terrific bloody action; it cements the superhero genre even farther, the movie gets better from beginning to end, the acting is incredible, from both Hugh Jackman, and Patrick Stewart, as Wolverine, and Charles Xavier respectively. This movie made me cry more than any other movie this year which is why it’s my number one favorite movie of 2017.


 Let’s hope that 2018 has another great year for movies.
