2017 – Movie List*

*Of the movies I’ve seen… And, of course, no one has asked me for my opinion.

I’m way down as far as my usual numbers. I try to see anywhere between 50 and 60 films in a calendar year, but this year I managed to see a little over 30 films. I felt like a lot of the movies this year were meh and passed on the bulk of them. Also, I did a ton of writing and going to the movie theater was the last thing I wanted to do when I had any free time. The current numbers look to be the same for next year (2018) and into the future for reasons I won’t go into.

So like last year: here’s yet another obligatory “list.” I find these to be my favorite movies to hit the theaters in 2017. Ten films worked last year, so ten films it is this year—with my take on each in ten words, in true tongue-in-cheek fashion. I don’t rank one above the other and am merely listing them by the 2017 American release date. Again, I enjoyed all of them! See you in 2018. Peace!

Ten words: Husband and Wife both have affairs but they are refreshing.

 

Ten words: A man’s lust for indigenous poon gets law enforcement killed.

 

Ten words: Steve and Rob are back… New Orleans next time around?

 

Ten words: Navel-gazing hipster existentialism à la spelunking in giant cardboard boxes.

 

Ten words: An engaging CIA thriller—but with the usual doomsday device.

 

Ten words: Who knew that a rape could be so damn funny?

 

Ten words: No indigenous people were killed; an idiot becomes town savior.

 

Ten words: Poker takes a back seat to all the daddy issues.
