What have been the best movies of 2017 so far? Before I answer that question let me make it clear that the report card for 2017 doesn’t look very good. We are into August, we have seen many great movies come out in 2017. Yes, there have been a few sparks here and there, but in terms of what we can call truly great, there is not much to choose from. In fact, if you remove last month out of the equation, things look even more dire. Film industries, including Hollywood, seriously need to do something about the consistently bad quality of movies that release in the first half of the year.
Anyway, we can only hope that things start changing and we get to see more quality films throughout the year — and not just last few months. With that said, below is the list of best films of 2017. I liked all the films on this list — some more than others — and loved at least one (You can guess which one). Again, the top 20 movies of 2017 (so far):
20. Alien: Covenant
‘Alien – Covenant’ is a return to the original essence of the franchise, and even if it may not surpass the original films, it certainly offers a great deal of entertainment, especially when watched on the big screen. Driven by Micahel Fassbender’s terrific performance as a humanoid and director Ridley Scott’s innovative ways to keep the stories interesting, ‘Alien: Covenant’ isn’t path-breaking but it certainly is good one-time watch.
