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.
2017 has been a great year for movies overall. As the year closes, numerous films have made their case for major Oscar contention. The best part about this year is that there is no clear front-runner for Best Picture or Best Director, and that makes the race very exciting. My top 10 list changed a lot over the year, which usually isn’t the case. There has simply been a lot of great movies released consistently since February. Below is a list of my favorite films from 2017.
2017 has been quite a year at the theater. We have are about at the end of the year, and I can’t tell you how many huge Oscar contenders there are this year. There’s a huge consensus that even now there is no clear frontrunner for the best picture. If you’re looking for something to catch at the theater over the holidays or just missed any of these movies when they came out, I’m going to list the most notable and my personal favorite movies from the past year.

Tommy Wiseau’s The Room is a cultural phenomenon. It is an absolutely horrendous movie, from the acting to the writing all the way through the production. This movie should have been forgotten about after it’s original two week run in theaters. Yet here we are seventeen years later, still talking about it. People love this movie. Every year, midnight screenings still sell out. Greg Sestero, one of the actors, wrote a best selling book on the movie. Now, James Franco has made a very well-done movie about the making of the worst movie of all time – The Disaster Artist. Read more
The Room came out almost fifteen years ago. It was a total bomb from the get go. No studio wanted to touch it. The crew hardly even owned up to working on it. Somehow at the end of it’s two week run in a theater, the cult the film would eventually know began to take shape. It skyrocketed into the stratosphere in terms of popularity and becoming a cultural icon. One of the actors, Greg Sestero, wrote a book detailing the production of the worst movie ever made and his meeting of one of the most peculiar human beings to ever exist, Tommy Wiseau. A feature film of the book (The Disaster Artist) featuring the Franco brothers releases soon, so what better time to have a look back at the infamously horrid film. Read more
