Hello again everybody and Happy New Year!! I'm gonna predict that 2018 will be another fantastic year for movies, as was 2017! There were an insane amount of movies that I absolutely loved and found myself walking away feeling completely transformed from viewing it. And that is the power of cinema: taking me somewhere new, showing me something I have never seen before, telling me a story I have never heard of and meet characters I can only imagine meeting. So without further adieu, here are my Top Ten Films of 2017!
Daisy Ridley) develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke
Skywalker (Mark Hamill), who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile,
the Resistance, lead by General Lea Organa (Carrie Fisher), prepares to do battle with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order. The fact that I have seen the film three times already should indicate you just how much I loved it! But it is also heartbreaking to watch because it was the last film that actress Carrie Fisher appeared in before her untimely passing in December 2016. Writer/director Rian Johnson as deliberately taken the franchise into uncharted territory and I am very excited to see where this will lead.
Greg Sestero best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy's
cult-classic disasterpiece THE ROOM (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever
Made”), THE DISASTER ARTIST is a hilarious and welcome reminder that
there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you
can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you're doing. James Franco is absolutely amazing in the movie and has become a force to be reckon with within the Hollywood
community. His resume is very eclectic and personal, taking on roles and
projects that really reflect his diverse interests of subjects. The film just sucks you in and doesn't let go until its beautiful conclusion!
Chris Hemsworth) is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty
hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to
stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian
civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless
Hela (Cate Blanchett). But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits
him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)! Both Hemsworth and Hiddleston have the best on-screen chemistry within the MCU and I can't get enough of them. I can watch these two all day! Cate Blanchett's Hela is cunning, vicious and deadly and is easily one the greatest villains in the MCU. Easily the best film in the series and is one of the funniest, action packed films within the MCU!!
Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen and Danny Huston, the movie become one of the biggest blockbusters of 2017! It also become the highest grossing film directed by a woman, the first female superhero to earn $821.9 million worldwide and was the biggest film to come out of the DC Extended Universe!
This was a blast to watch!
Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier return for the sequel but are joined by South Park co-creator Trey Parker, who plays the hilariously former 80's sitcom child star to super villain Balthazar Bratt. With its themes of sibling rivalry, family acceptance and living in the past, the movie contains all the fun, charm and laughs of the previous installments!
And there you have it folks! My Top Ten Films of 2017! It looked like the year that comic book based movies and animated family films prevailed. But every year this list gets harder and harder to
put together, but these were films that really made an impact on me,
and I sincerely hope you enjoyed reading my picks. So if by chance there
are films here that you haven't seen yet, I encourage you to check them
out. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by them!
Thanks for reading, and enjoy the show!
