FLICKED UP 2017: The Movies I Did And Did Not See

From worst to best:

Alien: Covenant
Alien: Covenant – a pile of garbage.
Bushwick – an interesting idea not executed well
Power Rangers – stupid but sometimes entertaining
Bright – ham handed and mostly nonsense
Get Out – great potential wasted; motivations unsold
War for the Planet of the Apes – excessive schmaltz
Life – predictable rehash
Okja – some great parts and some terrible parts
It – too many characters
Kong: Skull Island – stupid but fun
It Comes At Night – Not as advertised but still good
Human Flow – opened my mind and heart
Free Fire. Highly entertaining
The Last Jedi – flawed but at least it took risks
Killing of a Sacred Deer – not for everyone
The LEGO Batman Movie – fun and silly with heart
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – Much better than the original
The Big Sick – great except I didn’t care about the girl
Wonder Woman – end fight a shitshow, otherwise grand
Coco
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 – more of the same, which is good
Atomic Blonde – a joy to watch
I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore – compelling w/ great performances
Brigsby Bear – original, weird in the best way
Thor: Ragnarok – good action good humour
Wind River – quite good really.
Lady Bird – great character performances

 

Darkest Hour
Spider-Man Homecoming – the best villain in the MCU
Baby Driver – love interest barely works but everything else kills
Dunkirk – intense, crushing, best soundtrack
The Shape of Water – 8/10
Logan – the superhero movie we needed
Blade Runner 2049 – refreshingly paced
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – bold, funny, dark
