2017 in Review

  1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, A-, little plot, but great characters and humor
  2. Wind River, A-, well made procedural in a bleak setting
  3. Thor: Ragnarok, A-, surprisingly funny and entertaining action movie
  4. Lady Bird, B+, great characters and acting, conventional story
  5. Get Out, B+, a lot more going on than just a horror movie
  6. Star Wars: The Last Jedi, B+, unconventional but still good chapter in the saga
  7. Blade Runner 2049, B+, great looking but takes a while to get moving
  8. Dunkirk, B+, slow and confusing but visually impressive
  9. Baby Driver, B+, well-made gangster car chase movie
  10. Darkest Hour, B+, good look at one month of Winston Churchill
  11. Wonder Woman, B+, well made origin story of a super woman
  12. The Greatest Showman, B+, enjoyable musical with a great cast
  13. Coco, B, beautifully drawn with a nice story, but not great
  14. Beauty and the Beast, B, mostly the same movie, but with more stuff
  15. Spider-Man Homecoming, B, Avengers integration does more harm than good
  16. I, Tonya, B, hard to make more out of this tabloid story
  17. John Wick: Chapter 2, B-, technically better, but the plot is disappointing
  18. Alien: Covenant, C+, some neat concepts, some of the same old stuff
  19. The Lego Batman Movie, C+, cute, but ultimately just the same Batman
  20. Cars 3, C, not my favorite series, so so story
