Looking Back: The Movies I’ve Seen of 2017; Ranked from Worst to Best

Two years ago it was a year full of movies, good and bad. So, with no further delay, here’s my list. Enjoy!

16. The Mummy

When I heard they were remaking The Mummy I was kind of skeptical at first but then I heard that Tom Cruise was playing the lead and I got excited. Tom Cruise has been making fantastic movies for decades. There was no way he could star in a film about some explorers who run into real-life mummies and the movie end up becoming a fail. How terribly wrong I was. From the first trailer, I saw I knew this film wasn’t going to be as good as I had hoped but this movie wasn’t just boring or corny. It was poorly written, the plot was terrible, and it was painful watching Tom Cruise and Russel Crowe, who are both great actors, stoop down to the level of this horrid film.

I was hoping I was going to enjoy this movie but I ended up disliking nearly everything about it. This is undoubtedly the worst movie I’ve seen this year.

It’s been a year full of movies, good and bad, and while I haven’t seen all of the films this year I have seen a whole lot of them and so because it’s the last day of the year I figured I might as well rank them. So, here’s my list. Enjoy!

A Spoiler-Free Review of War for the Planet of the Apes

When War for the Planet of the Apes was coming out in July I actually didn’t want to see it. I had seen the last one and it wasn’t that great so I figured this movie wouldn’t be too good either. Then I heard so many fantastic reviews about it that I just decided maybe I should watch it after all. So it became available on Digital and I finally watched it. Here’s what I have to say about it.

This is hands down the best Planet of the Apes movie that has ever been made. First of all, the CGI was mindblowing. I mean look at this picture. This is Caesar, played by the legendary Andy Serkis, and he’s a CGI character, yet he looks about as real as the humans in the movie. There were so many close-up shots of monkeys’ faces in the movie, mainly Caesar, that I was just watching the movie stunned. The CGI never wavered, the apes never began to look fake, it really was impressive and downright stunning to see all of these expressions and actions the apes made and it just never felt artificial.
