2017 has not been an incredibly fruitful year in terms of movies, but there were some that really stood out to me as something new, original or just plain interesting and entertaining, and here they are:
Get Out (2017)
Although this movie was pretty much a copy of Skeleton key (2005) with Kate Hudson, it was still a pretty good movie - if you have 1 hour and 44 minutes to kill - this is your movie!
"It's time for a young African American to meet with his white girlfriend's parents for a weekend in their secluded estate in the woods, but before long, the friendly and polite ambience will give way to a nightmare."
Wonder Woman (2017)
A classic quality super heroine movie we've all been waiting for is finally here - in 2017!
"When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, Diana, an Amazonian warrior in training, leaves home to fight a war, discovering her full powers and true destiny."
A war movie that pretty much touched everyone who's seen it. It's a story of war, not of the individual. A person watching really gets the magnitude of suffering and casualties of something so serious and dangerous - if you're in for a depiction of reality look no further!
"Allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France are surrounded by the German Army, and evacuated during a fierce battle in World War II."
A horror movie done right! Besides the elements of fantasy, sci-fi and horror, you truly feel like you're in the 80's - a terrific piece of cinema indeed!
"A group of bullied kids band together when a shapeshifting demon, taking the appearance of a clown, begins hunting children."
Split (2016 - came out in 2017)
Split is a movie people of good taste should all see! it's a thriller with elements of psychological play by the main character. James McAvoy is staggeringly talented and plays his roles seamlessly. If you're a fan of psychological thrillers - give this a watch. You certainly won't regret it!
"Three girls are kidnapped by a man with a diagnosed 23 distinct personalities. They must try to escape before the apparent emergence of a frightful new 24th."
