If you didn’t know, besides books, I really enjoy watching movies and I’m so excited to share my favorites in the hopes that you guys go and watch them! Like I did in my Top 5 books of 2017! I’m going to start off with my least favorite and then lead up to my most favorite of the year. The movies I’ve selected vary between different genres so if you don’t like comedies maybe there’s one about action that you’ll love. I also wanted to include some honorable mentions at the end, so keep reading to find out!
5. The Greatest Showman // Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXCTMGYUg9A
EEK!! This film recently came out and it’s all anyone has been talking about. This story takes place in New York and is about a man with big dreams who decides to create a show where the unusual is appreciated. Along the way he loses sight of what’s important, but what I really loved about this movie is that you should never be afraid to be who you are. From the music to the dancing, all the scenes from this movie were so magically written and played out that you couldn’t keep your eyes away. And I mean literally! Halfway through the movie I had the sudden urge to use the bathroom BUT I JUST COULD’NT LEAVE. That’s how amazing all the songs and the actors were in this movie.
BEWARE: This movie will most definitely leave you obsessed with the soundtrack and finding yourself humming the lyrics everywhere you go.
4. Call Be My Your Name // Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9AYPxH5NTM
BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING PIECE OF ARTWORK.
Call me by your name took my heart and surged it towards a rollercoaster of emotions. Essentially, the movie is about two guys who meet in a small town in Italy during the summer of 1983. In simple terms, this movie is a love story. But it’s unlike any movie out there no not just because it’s representation of the LGBTQ+ community, but because of the production and film value. I’m in no means a film student, but I could appreciate all the subtleties of the music and the hidden meanings behind the scenes of this movie. That being said, this movie is also very explicit at points and very open with sexuality so I definitely would not recommend this to younger folks. It’s rated R so it might be best if you watch this when your of age or very mature at your age.
3. Thor: Ragnarok // Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue80QwXMRHg
AGAIN another amazing movie!! Thor: Ragnarok left me so SHOOK. Personally, I’m a huge fan of basically all Marvel movies, but Thor was never really one of my favorite superhero’s. Like in the Avenger movies, Thor was always just kind of there for me. That was until I saw this movie. If you haven’t seen any of the Marvel superhero movies and have no idea who Thor is, WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?? and if you think that these movies are just about action, than you are painstakingly wrong. Unfortunately, I can’t really tell you what this movie is about because there are movies that you have to see before this to understand at least a little bit about Thor’s predicament. But I will say that this movie was hilarious and got me so excited for the third installment in the Avengers series, The Avengers: Infinity War.
WOOT! WOOT! INFINITY WAR COMES OUT IN MAY!
2. Coco // Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNCz4mQzfEI
I’M CRYING JUST REMEMBERING WATCHING THIS MOVIE. mY God. Okay, so this movie was another A++ in my books! Before I went to see this movie, I didn’t think much of it to be honest. I was actually expecting something similar to that movie, The Book of life, but boy was I wrong. Disney blew my socks off with this magnificent movie about family and family values.
I actually cried during this movie because there’s a lot of scenes that deal with expectations, and passions, and how at the center of it all, your family is always going to be there for you. I recommend this movie to people of all ages and I also recommend that you go see this movie with your family. I promise you will not regret it!
1. Lady bird // Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNi_HC839Wo
AHHH OMG THIS MOVIE DESERVES A+++++++
Where do I even begin with how spectacular this movie was! I absolutely adored this movie and I love the main actor, Saoirse Ronan. This movie is essentially about a girl in her senior year of high school and the things that go on in her life. It deals with topics such as applying to college, a focus on her relationship with her mom, and troubles with guys and romance in general. What I really loved most about this movie is how relatable it all seemed and how I could picture myself in her shoes. The character development and the struggles she deals with throughout the movie, were beautifully written and portrayed. This movie is also getting lots of buzz in the awards season and has already secured two Golden Globes and countless nominations. So if I haven’t convinced you to go see this film, these awards should be proof enough.
AND sadly folks, unfortunately we have reached the end of my Top 5 movies of 2017! Below I’m going to leave a list of movies that I really enjoyed, but just didn’t make the cut. 2017 was a year with really amazing movies, so it was hard to decide which ones were my favorite.
- Star Wars: The Last Jedi
- Baby Driver
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2
- Beauty and the Beast
- Spider-Man Homecoming
Guys, I really hope you enjoyed this review and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take a chance and give one of these movies a try! Anyways, I hope you guys have a great week and until next time! ❤
