Jordan’s Top 10 Movies of 2017

2017 is behind us but it’s time to look back one more time at my favorite movies of the year. As always, my original ratings for these movies only has a little effect here because my opinions change some over time. Entertainment value, re-watchability, how much the movie has stuck with me, and the movie’s overall quality all go into these decisions. Per usual, I didn’t get to see everything this year so those movies won’t be making the list. Some of these include Coco, Blade Runner 2049, and The Disaster Artist. You can click on the title for each movie to see my original review for that movie.

Honorable Mentions:

10. Get Out

I rated this movie relatively low initially at a 3.5, mostly because it’s just a little too weird and wacky for me. However, for whatever reason, it has stuck with me. It’s intensity and novelty barely sneak it on the list.

9. War for the Planet of the Apes

Its title is misleading and it is a bit too long, but it is a solid conclusion to one of the best movie trilogies ever made/

8. Patriots Day

This was one of those weird limited released in 2016, but released for me in 2017, movies. It counts as a 2017 movie for me because of that. I really enjoy it and think it is a very good depiction of the Boston Marathon Bombing investigation.

7. Baby Driver

Very entertaining, start to finish, with some of the best car chase scenes ever. If it wasn’t so predictable and if the style didn’t wear on me towards the end, it would be higher.

6. Dunkirk

It’s just a really solid (and loud) WW2 movie. Another hit from Christopher Nolan

5. Spider-Man Homecoming

Shockingly, it was the second best superhero movie to come out this year, as well as the best Spider-man movie yet.

4. Wind River

One of my most recent watches, but a great crime mystery.

3. Logan

This was the best superhero movie this year. I like it more and more after rewatching it a couple times. I love the western feel of it, and how different it is from other movies in the genre.

2. Star Wars: The Last Jedi

What? A Star Wars movie isn’t number one? I know it’s pretty crazy for me. I actually like the movie more than I did initially the more time that has passed and it has some of the greatest Star Wars moments yet in it. But I still have some problems with it. What could possibly beat it?…

1. IT

That’s right, a horror movie about a clown is my favorite movie of the year. I loved it when I saw it and it has stuck with me big time. It’s much deeper than a normal horror movie and features some really good acting from everyone. I can’t wait for the sequel.

Well, that’s my list for the best movies of the year. Obviously many of you will disagree, so let me know your thoughts and picks in the comments. And, as always, Like us on Facebook (Police Entertainment Network) and Twitter (@copswatchmovies).
