My Top Ten Movies Of 2017

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):

  1. 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 πŸ™‚

  2. 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…

  3. 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?! πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ™‚

  4. 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.)

  5. Great list! It looks like we had many of the same choices. πŸ™‚ Although I had to give β€œIt” 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. πŸ˜‰ 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. πŸ™‚

      • 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. πŸ˜‰ ha ha

    • 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. πŸ™‚
