Sean’s Top 10 Films of 2017 Featuring Logan & Three Billboards

Sean’s Top 10 Films of 2017 Featuring Logan & Three Billboards

If you’re reading this, then you’ve probably read enough opening paragraphs for “Best Movies of 2017” lists explaining how great a year it was for cinema, and yes, all those articles/lists/whatever are correct. In a year filled with tribulation around the globe, going to the cinema not only felt like the perfect escape, but 2017 was also just a great year in general for movies. From blockbusters to indie standouts, we laughed, we cried, we cheered, and we were wowed from January to December. Creating this list was difficult because, honestly, there was something I saw each month that would have made my top 10 list for any other year; that itself speaks to just how good a year it was for going to the cinema. But another year has come and gone, and it’s time to look back and remember the best of the best that Hollywood gave us in 2017.

Hope Springs Eternal for DC Movies with Justice League (Review)

Hope Springs Eternal for DC Movies with Justice League (Review)

The road to Justice League, which brings together some of DC Comics’ most iconic superheroes, has not been without its share of debate or controversy. Up until this summer’s crowd-pleasing Wonder Woman, the three previous entries in the DC Extended Universe (which include Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad) were hotly debated amongst both fans and critics for their movie’s storytelling decisions and character developments that showed DC Comics’ characters in different lights. While each of them was a box office success, it was apparent that it wasn’t enough to win over audiences. Fast forward to today and Justice League is viewed as a course correction for Warner Brothers’ DCEU going forward. While Justice League certainly has its issues and isn’t exactly coherent at times, each of the movie’s superhero characters are more than satisfying and help make the superhero team up an enjoyable action romp.

Ranking The DCEU Including Justice League

Ranking The DCEU Including Justice League

The DCEU has had plenty of issues so far, but there have also been some bright spots. It definitely didn’t hit the ground running like the MCEU, but I think they’re slowly but surely getting it right. After seeing Justice League, I can officially rank the DCEU films so far. Read more

Wonder Woman: DC Finally Makes a Decent Superhero Movie [Review]

Wonder Woman: DC Finally Makes a Decent Superhero Movie [Review]

I was never a fan of Wonder Woman, but not for the usual reasons. I’m actually not even clear on what ‘the usual reasons’ would be – I just wanted to watch Superman roam around in tights instead of some woman.  Apparently a lot of ostensibly straight men weren’t too keen on Wonder Woman either?  I went into the film with that question knowing nothing about Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman: The Most Triumphant, Crowd-Pleasing Superhero Movie Since ‘The Avengers’ (Review)

Wonder Woman: The Most Triumphant, Crowd-Pleasing Superhero Movie Since ‘The Avengers’ (Review)

In one scene plastered all over the marketing for Wonder Woman, we see the female heroine step onto the battlefield, alone, to try and take out the German forces. This action-packed scene and what follows immediately after it combine to deliver not only one of the best action sequences in a superhero movie of all-time, but it is also a testament to just how crowd-pleasing the movie is as a whole. Wonder Woman is a bold, confident movie with as much heart as it has soul. Wonder Woman is not only a groundbreaking achievement, but also a movie that inspires much-needed hope in dark times like this. And given how crazy things are around the world, Wonder Woman is exactly the type of hero we need right now.

Sean’s Most Anticipated Movies of 2017: Logan, Beauty and the Beast & Star Wars

Sean’s Most Anticipated Movies of 2017: Logan, Beauty and the Beast & Star Wars

Let’s be honest – 2016 was the most underwhelming year at the movies in recent memory. While there was a fair of number great and entertaining movies, the wait between seeing memorable ones felt longer than usual. And while, as the trades have reported, it was another record-breaking year at the box office, inflation diminished the return of some of the biggest movies of 2016.

Thankfully, 2016 is out of the way and 2017 has arrived and studios are doubling down on tentpole movies. It’s exciting to consider what 2017 has to offer, as many movies scheduled for release throughout the year look very promising. As such, it was difficult to pick five movies I’m most looking forward to in 2017.
