It Comes At Night - number one.

Logan Lucky gets a special mention for making me laugh more than any movie this year.

It was also nice to have a welcome return from Dave Chappelle.

I've seen more standup specials than movies. And I've only seen five standup specials. But

1. Maria Bamford: Old Baby

I haven't seen Three Billboards yet but that and Lady Bird are most anticipated for me. Also hopefully Alejandro Jodorowsky's Endless Poetry will come to cable soon so I can finally see it. It's almost been 2 years.

Three Billboards is really great. It's a movie which messes with your expectations. Also, Frances McDormand deserves an Oscar. There's a few movies I still plan to see, but I think I'm about wrapped up with 2017 releases.

I did see something in the theater. Oh yeah mother!. Wasn't too keen on that one. Not as bad as The Fountain but still not too good.

I don't want to post (and re-spoil) my current top 10 of the year right now, since I'm saving that for my own year-end cinematic retrospective around New Year's Day, but I have to say that it seems like we've seen (and enjoyed) a lot of the same movies from this year. Off of your list, I would personally rank them as:

Three Billboards
Planet Of The Apes
Wind River
Logan Lucky
Coco
Ragnarok
It Comes At Night


Liked all of them to one degree or another, though. And I've never heard of Rakka or Zygote, but I do want to check out A Ghost Story sometime; good list on the whole, Pops.

Glad you liked my picks. I highly recommend A Ghost Story. It's a deeply moving, unique, and unconventional horror film. We don't get films like it very often.

As for Rakka and Zygote, you can find them on youtube. They're both just over 20 minutes long, so if you happen to be doing nothing as of now, you could probably finish them up tonight. I also recommend subscribing to Oats Studios, because they've produced some interesting videos in the past. I decided that both of them (and Firebase, which I didn't list) are my favorite things Blomkamp has ever done (I don't care that much for District 9).

Rakka
Zygote

I think right now, it's tentatively:

1. Blade Runner 2049
2. The Shape of Water
3. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
4. Okja
5. Spiderman: Homecoming
6. Wind River
7. Get Out
8. Baby Driver
9. Free Fire
10. Lego Batman

I haven't seen nearly enough of the art films that are bursting through this award season so I'm stacked heavily with blockbusters at the moment. I'm sure that will change but my top 3 will be hard to top.

Need to see: Coco, The Florida Project, Phantom Thread, The Post, The Shape of Water

Maybe it's just because most of what I saw were genre movies, but 2017 was an excellent year for them. I credit the success of Mad Max: Fury Road for raising the bar.

Looks like you liked Baby Driver more than I realized, since I remember you mostly criticizing it in your thread about it back at The Other Backstabbing Place... or maybe you rewatched it and liked it better the 2nd time? That'd be good to know, since I enjoyed it a lot myself, and I'll likely check it out again someday; fuckin' Edgar Wright, such a reliably entertaining director, eh?

Hell yeah. My number one movie of 2017. It still gets to me.

Oh yeah and I keep forgetting Raw. I love that movie. Probably my number two. The relationship between the two sisters clinched the deal.

So far, it's looking like:

2. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
3. The Florida Project
4. It Comes at Night
5. Blade Runner 2049
6. Get Out
7. Dunkirk
8. Logan
9. Mudbound
10. The Lost City of Z

If I counted Twin Peaks: The Return as a movie, it would be at the top.

I have now seen I, Tonya, The Disaster Artist, and The Post. I loved the first, quite liked the second and found the third to be middling. This changes my top 10 in the following way:

1. Get Out
2. I, Tonya
3. Lady Bird
4. Blade Runner 2049
5. The Disaster Artist
6. The Big Sick
7. I Am Not Your Negro
8. The Shape of Water
9. Thor: Ragnarok
10. Baby Driver


Seriously. I, Tonya was great. It really stands out amongst a sea of tired biopics. It is all at once hilarious, disturbing, poignant, sad and relevant. It is also the most fun I had at the movies in a long time, Margot Robbie and Allison Janney are a riot. I am tempted to put it as my top of the year, but I resist for now. Get Out contains one of the most fully formed and near-perfectly executed concepts it is hard to knock it off its pedestal.
