The 12 Best Movies of 2017
There were many great movies of 2017, and thank God, we needed it. From creepy clowns to cinematic war movies, we've broke down the must-see films of the year.
1. Get Out
Get Out was a refreshing, exciting, and terrifying horror film. Written and directed by Jordan Peele, Get Out was critical and box office success. With Easter eggs and fan theories, this was a must-see movie of the year.
2. Baby Driver
Baby Driver received acclaim thanks to stellarperformances by Ansel Elgort, Jon Hamm, Lily James, and Jamie Foxx. Better yet, the soundtrack made the movie an entertaining experience. The music acted as a character on it’s own and made for a unique movie.
Logan follows the Wolverine as he finds children who are a lot like him. It’s dark, moody, and sweet. It’s a change from the overly animated and action-packed X-Men franchise and the ending will have you weaping on a plane back from Hawaii. Oh, just me? Cool.
Okja is quite possibly the most heart-wrenching film on this list. A Netflix original movie starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, Okja is as unique as it is special. When a farmer and his granddaughter are given a special animal to take care of, their world is torn apart when the government comes back to reclaim her. It’ll make you rethink how we treat animals, in so many ways.
5. Spider-Man: Homecoming
Fun, hilarious, and a good time. Marvel is getting funnier with their superheroes and Spider-Man is no exception. British born Tom Holland is sensational and finally a perfectly cast teenager who gets bit my a spider. Michael Keaton is a fantastic addition to a perfectly executed summer flick. We’ll see Spider-Man for a while as he’s been included in the latest Avengers movies.
Leave it to Stephen King to make a horribly creepy movie based on a clown. Leave it to horror fans to make it the number one movie at the box office this year. Made with a $35 million, the movie made over $600 million dollars at the box office. Horror films have seen an influx in the past few years but this movie reached new heights. A group of friends must overcome a creepy clown in order to find peace in their small town in Maine. Stephen King rereleased his novel in paperback, allowing people to have nightmares on screen and on paper.
