    I think I only saw cbm in 2017 so:

    Logan, Ragnarok, Homecoming, GOTG vol 2

    I saw I Tonya a couple of months ago and it deserves all the accolades it got.

    SW TLJ is a tough one. I thought Mark Hamill did an amazing job with the crappy material and I appreciate that they tried to put an interesting spin on ESB - but it was also full of unnecessary crap and some plot twists felt like twists for twists sake rather than legit story points which make sense. Luke's death/ascension was the high point of a confused film.

    A Silent Voice -- a touching anime drama film about bullying and the toll it can take on all parties.

    In This Corner of the World -- a worthy successor to Grave of the Fireflies, one of the best films to deal with the effects of war.

    Coco -- Pixar's best since Inside Out and Toy Story 3, a colorfully immersive adventure to the other world.

    Dunkirk -- a rollercoaster ride of a war film, serious and entertaining in a way Interstellar does not manage.

    All These Sleepless Nights -- a documentary/fiction film about clubs kids on the cusp of adulthood dealing with what that means. Underseen but superb.

    Personal Shopper -- a funny and moving ghost story starring Kristen Stewart giving one of her best performances.

    That one would probably make it on my list but I saw it listed under “2016” in most other places.

    Blade Runner 2049 was my own favourite film of that year, without a doubt. That and Coco.

    Blade Runner 2049, Wind River, Get Out, Baby Driver, and It.

    Logan Lucky, I Tonya, GotG2, Lego Batman, and Wonder Woman were solid but not quite there as favorites.

    Did not care for Logan. The stupidity of the plot point with Eriq LaSalles family turned me off. Just terrible writing.

    Dunkirk is one for my watchlist.

    Baby Driver would have to be my favorite.

    I also really dug The Greatest Showman.

    I forgot Homecoming came out in 2017. That's another favorite for sure.
