the good movies of 2017 ("didn't waste my time")
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!
DIDN'T WASTE MY TIME
Interesting philosophical themes, but a lackluster ALIEN movie.
BLADE RUNNER 2049
Extremely dense and beautifully shot with great themes, just a bit overstuffed to really love.
Super cute, endearing movie.
Much like their adventure, a nice little time away from the world.
AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER
The only documentary I saw in theaters, mainly because I got to see Former Vice President Al Gore in person! I'm not sure how to grade docs, but it's an interesting look at Gore. It doesn't focus on the bigger picture of climate change like the first movie, but instead the repercussions and updates AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH.
Extremely well acted, just didn't love much else.
THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI
Another well-acted movie, with a great ensemble. The rest of the movie is lacking and has mixed messages, though.
