This is a list (with IMDB links) to my top 10 favorite movies of 2017. It should be noted that I excluded all Marvel/DC Comics/Star Wars films from this list and there are no spoilers.

10) The Lego Batman Movie – I really enjoyed this movie. It is a must watch if you are a fan of the Batman franchise.

9) T2 Trainspotting – The first Trainspotting film was fantastic. The soundtrack is still one of my favorites. Im glad the cast was able to return for the follow up, but it can never capture the magic of the original.

8) Valerian – This one was visually stunning, but lacked talent for the two leads. Its a shame this movie didnt do better at the box office because I would have loved to have seen more from this series.

7) Mother! – I put this one on my list because it is so interesting how different everyones interpretation is, even on subsequent viewings. Im not a fan of Jennifer Lawrence, but she did an excellent job in this one.

6) I, Tonya – Who even knew this would be so entertaining? I was in my 20s when the Tonya Harding / Nancy Kerrigan incident occurred and I can remember the media frenzy. Margot Robbie did an excellent job portraying Tonya Harding.

5) Get Out – I did not expect a film like this to be written and directed by Jordan Peele. This is an incredible experience of a film.

4) Blade Runner 2049 – This was such an enjoyable sequel to the original. I keep describing films as visually stunning, but Ive never watched a movie and been so affected by the cinematography in the way this one did.

3) The Disaster Artist – I dont think you would like this if you havent experienced The Room. Tommy is such an interesting person and this movie was a joy in theaters.

2) Lady Bird – This movie should be something all mothers and daughters see together. Even tho I didnt see it until the last part of December, I almost picked it for my number 1 movie of the year.

1) Good Time – Easily my favorite movie of the year. This has to be one of the most original films Ive ever seen. This was an experience.

I have not seen a number of films that from their descriptions, probably would have made this list. Those films are: Ingrid Goes West, Brigsby, 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Killing of a Sacred Deer.

Do you agree with my list? Have you see these movies? What are your thoughts?
