Top 10 Best Hollywood Films of 2017 – A MovizArk Take!!!

Apart from a few surprises, the year 2017 proved to be one of Hollywood’s most disastrous years at the box office in decades. From bad sequels to disappointing reboots, the worst movies of 2017 are a variety of unfunny comedies and boring films. Films like Fifty Shades Darker, A Bad Moms Christmas and Transformers: The Last Knight, failed to redeem their respective franchises, while reboots like The Mummy, Flatliners and Baywatch disappointed everyone. I really can’t say anything about people who willing paid good money for films Geostorm, The Snowman or The LEGO Ninjago Movie, of course the worst of all, the studio cash grab The Emoji Movie. But hey not to take away the glory from the few excellent films, like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049, War for the Planet of the Apes and Coco, who under the guidance of talented filmmakers, made sure the year closed on a redeemable end. Also can forget the excellent Logan, which stood out from the general yet very likable Marvel films, and even though DC scored a bomb with Justice League, it had Wonder Woman to celebrate with. While films like The Bye Bye Man & Rings gave horror a bad name, films like Get Out and It, made it clear that if the quality is good, there is an audience (a massive one).  As expect this year too, belonged to the Indie genre which stood out the most, with films like Lady Bird, Wind River, The Big Sick and The Disaster Artist, earning critical as well as commercial success. While I haven’t been able to check out acclaimed films like Shape of Water, The Post, The Darkest Hour and Call Me By Your Name, which I am sure would have affected my list, I am glad to crown filmmaker Martin McDonagh’s film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri as my top choice of the year. The following list of 10 films in my opinion deserve praise for standing out from the releases of this torrid year:

  1. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)
  2. Lady Bird (2017)
  3. Wind River (2017)
  4. Logan (2017)
  5. Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
  6. The Disaster Artist (2017)
  7. Coco (2017)
  8. Dunkirk (2017)
  9. War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)
  10. The Big Sick (2017)

A few honorable mentions:

  1. The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)
  2. Get Out (2017)
  3. Wonder Woman (2017)
  4. A Ghost Story (2017)
  5. It (2017)
