2017 is finally over and what a year it was for film. I really liked a lot of movies this year and I didn’t even come close to seeing everything I wanted to see. My list was originally 16 but I managed to whittle it down to 10, which wasn’t easy. Without further adieu here is my top ten favorite movies of 2017.
Spider-Man 2 is Sam Raimi’s penultimate film in the Tobey Maguire film series. This time Peter Parker is out on his own, down on his luck but still Spider-Man. He faces his best villain in the series Otto Octavius, a man just as smart as Peter and more dangerous. I’m sure you’ve seen the movie so you know who Doc Ock is and you know who Spider-Man is. I think we can all agree Spider-Man 2 is the best Spider-Man movie so far. But I think Spider-Man 2 is the best comic book movie. Yeah The Dark Knight is phenomenal, Logan is a beautiful film and Captain America: Civil War is just great but none of them feel like a comic book. Spider-Man 2 feels like a comic book. I’m gonna run you down a list of reasons why.
As the title says Will (that’s me) ranks the MCU movies. I’m doing this ranking in anticipation for Avengers: Infinity War. I love the MCU and I love the movies but some of them are certainly better than others. I don’t dislike any of the movies. They are all watchable so just because a movie is 18th on the list that doesn’t mean I think it’s shit, it’s just my least favorite. Making this list wasn’t easy for me. I felt like a dad trying to pick there favorite kid. I assume that’s hard task for most fathers unless your mine cause he’d pick my sister.
Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine — distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear. – Sony Pictures Releasing
It’s f**king Spider-Man. Go see it.
I give Spider-Man Homecoming a 9.9 out of 10, actual review coming soon.
I didn’t see a movie this weekend. I was going pretty strong, I was probably on a two month streak of one movie a week. Nothing really caught my eye this week and unfortunately I don’t get paid for this and movies aren’t cheap. So instead of writing a movie review, here is a list of my most anticipated movies coming out this summer. The films will be listed in order of release.
