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.
Let’s face it, the majority of the blockbuster movies this year ranged from “meh, it was ok” to “pretty disappointing.” However, that didn’t stop it from being a very good year for movies and this year delivered! Of course I wasn’t able to see every movie that came out this year, but from what I have seen, these are my picks for the best movies of the year.
Despite having a number of problems and flaws, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a whole lot of fun and another solid entry into an already great franchise.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first anthology Star Wars movie and what many are calling “Disney’s experiment.” If this movie succeeds, Disney can feel confident in releasing additional anthology movies, if it’s not then Disney will need to reset their course of action. With it’s release well underway, Disney can feel confident in the direction they’re going.
