the eh/worst of 2017 ("why did i watch this?" & "i hate my life")
This list is limited to the movies I watched in theaters. A number next to the movie title indicates if I saw a movie multiple times in the cinema. These are categorized in alphabetical order, and for more info on the somewhat self-explanatory categories, click here to read more about them. Thanks for reading and make sure to let me know what you think about the list and my choices, and we can discuss!
WHY DID I WATCH THIS?
A slow, but well acted movie that feels too forceful.
Great tension until the last act, when it completely escapes the world it established.
Tries too hard to be quirky with a not great screenplay, but great performances somewhat make up for it.
The Killing of a Sacred Deer
Enjoyably weird until it begins to indulge too much in its oddity.
Cute performances, just didn't find anything to love about it.
Again another movie with strong performances, but weird directorial choices and mediocre storytelling ruin the movie.
Juggles too many tones unsuccessfully.
Annoyingly self-righteous and tone deaf.
Paint It Black
Slow, but doesn't do a lot at all with the quiet moments, which ends up being every scene.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Just, a mess.
