Here’s my final list of 2017: All the movies released in the UK in 2017 that I saw. As always, I’ve ranked them from my least favorite to my favorite. Remember that the UK gets all the “Oscar” stuff in January & February (so annoying), so a lot of last year’s nominees are here. And I need to point out that I missed out on seeing a lot this year so I’ve listed some of those at the end.
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope 2018 is a good year for films other than just superhero movies. Here are My Top Ten Movies Of 2017 (starting at the bottom – I saw 37 & there’s one tie):
35. Smurfs: The Lost Village
33. Beauty And The Beast (2017)
30. The Fits
27. Alien: Covenant
25. Ancien And The Magic Tablet (aka Napping Princess)
24. Before I Fall
23. Despicable Me 3
22. The Babysitter
21. Get Out
20. Manchester By The Sea
19. Spider-Man: Homecoming
18. La La Land
16. A Dog’s Purpose
13. T2 Trainspotting
12. John Wick: Chapter 2
11. The LEGO Batman Movie
10. TIE: Logan & Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets
9. Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle
6. Wonder Woman
5. Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
4. Baby Driver
As I said, I missed out on more films than usual that I really wanted to see this year. Some of these are probably even Top Ten contenders so it’s worth mentioning that I’ve not seen them (I especially want to see the ones in bold):
A Monster Calls, Hidden Figures, Kong: Skull Island, Ghost In The Shell, The Circle, Colossal, The Red Turtle, My Life As A Courgette, It Comes At Night, War For The Planet Of The Apes, The Beguiled, Dunkirk, Atomic Blonde, A Ghost Story, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, The Dark Tower, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The Glass Castle, Happy Death Day, Call Me By Your Name, Murder On The Orient Express, Wonder, Brigsy Bear, Better Watch Out, The Greatest Showman
Nice list … although I’d have to disagree with GoTG Vol 2 … I thought it was a big letdown!
Thanks! Awww – I loved GOTG2! I do think the first film is better. But I’m a sucker for baby Groot. 🙂
Good list of movies you watched. I’m glad you had Blade Runner 2049 in your top 3. I still haven’t seen It or many other great movies of the year.
Thanks! Oh man – sorry I’m so behind on comments! Blade Runner was fantastic. Hope you get a chance to see It! I loved it. But I love most things Stephen King. 🙂
I love seeing Guardians on your list…I disagree with the comment above and thought it was absolutely fantastic! Definitely better than the first and definitely top 10 material 🙂
Thanks! Glad to hear from lovers of Guardians of the Galaxy. I adore the characters & they’re now my favorite superhero films. And you gotta love Baby Groot! 🙂
Fun list and a lot of good variety. It was that kind of year.
Thanks, Keith! It was a pretty good year for films. Agree there was good variety as well. I like a lot of different genres so it’s good to get a decent selection. 🙂
You missed Dunkirk on a big screen. That’s a shame. Although I didn’t watch as many new releases as you did, so can’t really say much. Plus I still got my list to do…
Yeah… I know I really should try to watch Dunkirk before the Oscars. It just doesn’t really interest me. (I know. I’m weird. Lol). 🙂
So, after all your moaning you still put Last Jedi at no 2? 😉 😛
Hehe. Yep. It’s still Star Wars. 😜
Nice list, although I’d definitely invert Life and Alien 😂 and totally agree on the 1st place.
I finally saw the movie on 31.12.17!
Hehe. It doesn’t matter too much since they both sucked. 😉 Yay! Glad you saw It! Sorry – I’m WAY behind on blog comments. Hope you liked it!!! 🙂
Pretty different to my list, but at the same time I enjoyed all the films you’ve got there… that I’ve seen, anyway — not got round to It yet. It’s out on Blu-ray, etc, in a couple of weeks, so maybe then.
I’m so behind on my blog! Have you seen It yet?! 😀 I have a few days off of work (yay!) so I’ll finally be catching up on your blog. Still want to see your year end lists. 🙂
No, not got round to It yet. I was going to rent it, but then Amazon have had a bunch of rentals at reduced prices so I’ve been watching those instead!
A good-looking list Mutey! Gah, I can’t believe that not only have I still not seen T2, I’ve completely forgotten that I have not seen T2. Shame on me! (Fart.)
Thanks, Tom! Oh, hi! I’m super behind on my blog! Again! Seen T2 yet?! You really should. Although the first is much better. 🙂

Great list! It looks like we had many of the same choices. 🙂 Although I had to give “It” a pass since I am the world’s biggest wimp when it comes to horror films. I saw the preview for it in the theater and was almost to the point of hiding under my chair. 😉 ha ha Lots of good movies last year though!
Aww – I did really love It & actually didn’t find it at all scary. But I may be weird. Lol. It’s more like Stand By Me with some creepy bits. I loved it for the friendship between the kids. 🙂
A friend actually made those same comments after she watched “It”! She said she really liked the kids and how they banded together. I did actually end up stretching outside my comfort zone a bit and watched “Get Out.” But sadly, I just can’t do scary clowns. 😉 ha ha
If it helps, he’s not actually a clown… He’s a supernatural being of some sort. 😉 lol
Ha ha, unfortunately I think that’s still just too much for me to handle. 😉
We have a lot of the same top 10 but I would put them in a little different order. I never heard of Baby Driver and I’m SOOOO bummed out that I missed Bladerunner.
That’s too bad – if you like the original Blade Runner, you’ll like 2049. Surprised you’ve not heard of Baby Driver! Would be interested to know your opinion. It’s a fun film. 🙂
