Top Ten 2017

2017 was a stellar year for film, though perhaps I only feel that way because I watched 117 new movies, the most since 2013, allowing for plenty of great discoveries. That being said, as per usual, I couldn't see everything I wanted to, my biggest blindspots being: Faces Places, Thelma, The Square, Detroit, The Boss Baby (because that shit sounds crazy) as well as many others.

5 worst films would be Death Note, War on Everyone, Take the 10, The Last Face, and Kidnap while the 5 most disappointing were Three Billboards, The Florida Project, Girls Trip, Lady Macbeth, and Raw.

The list of honorable mentions seems longer than usual but this is a celebration of film so what the hell: mother!, The Big Sick, Dunkirk, A Ghost Story, War for the Planet of the Apes, Most Beautiful Island, The Shape of Water, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Coco, Okja, and Graduation.
