Wow! 2017 was an incredible year for movies. In the 5 years I’ve been making my top 10 list, this has been the hardest list to compile. Movies I thought for sure would be on the list when seeing them, are not on the list, I just don’t have room. Before my list here are a few honourable mentions:
War for the Planet of the Apes
Any other year these movies would be on my list, but this year was just so good, I can’t find a place for them. Now on to the list.
There was a time where M. Night Shyamalan was hailed as the next Spielberg or Hitchcock. Audiences flocked to his movies eagerly awaiting a thought-provoking thriller.
As the years went on however, his name became tainted. What started as “Oh wow! Shyamalan? I can’t wait!” after The Sixth Sense, eventually became, “ugh him again?” with The Last Airbender.
While 2015’s The Visit showed a promising comeback for the director, Split is finally the return to form we all wanted from the director and ranks among Shyamalan’s best work.
