Now our list may NOT be like others, but this is what we loved at the movies this year. Read on to find out CelebNMovies247’s Top 10 Movies of 2017…
We are just at the halfway mark for 2017, so there is still 5 more months of movies that should impress us, but for now here is our picks for January to August 15.
Ridley Scott went back to his roots – Alien Covenant is much like Alien, but it also helps to explain what happened after Prometheus. The film is great, it has plenty of Aliens and gross scenes. A bit predictable since they showed too much in the trailer, but lots of fun.
This was a perfect follow up to the first. It was more intense, more fighting, awesome story, and filled with non stop action.
This movie is quickly becoming one of the best romantic comedies of the summer. It’s become one of the most talked about films and the film continues to gain speed as it’s one of those movies that has a grass roots type success. The Big Sick has great characters, and impetuous story and it’s quirky yet truthful way of storytelling makes this movie sensational.
Logan was a perfect conclusion to Wolverine’s saga – Hugh Jackman final role as the half animal/half man X-Men who never dies. This movie is a bit sad, but incredible.
Another sequel, but this Marvel Cinematic Universe movie was a great follow up to the first. The soundtrack was defining, the story was interesting. This time around Star-Lord learns the real reason why his mother died in the first film. He also learns why his father, Ego wanted to find him.
The movie is action action action, car chases, comedy and some pretty dope scenes. Baby Driver keeps you thoroughly engaged. Bottom line, Edgar Wright’s rapid-fire, music-driven, car chase passion project, is oozing with cool.
Another perfect conclusion to a saga – War For the Planet of the Apes by director Matt Reeves was such a great movie. Reeves stepped things up in a huge way with his two sequels, capping off one of the best cinematic trilogies of the modern era.
This movie is hands down one of the funniest comedies of the year. We could stop laughing from beginning to end. If you missed Girl Trip, you missed out. Make sure to watch this when it releases on Blu-Ray/DVD.
This was such a great scary movie, It touched on so many things from slavery, racism, and the stereotypes of white women luring black men into captivity. Jordan Peele was a stand-out writer and performer on Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, but Get Out was far and beyond great. The social horror thriller became a full-blown sensation earlier this year and the biggest money maker of 2017.
Hands down one of the best superhero movies ever. Wonder Woman redeemed the DCEU after a not so great Batman vs Superman. Gal Gadot’s Diana is a strong female character that doesn’t feel like a typical Hollywood “strong female character.” Gadot breaths new life to the character. She is the perfect choice as Wonder Woman and we can’t wait for the sequel.
All of these movies are MUST HAVES for you collection. If NOT make sure to rent them at Red Box or on NetFlix.
