Comic Booked’s Best Movies of 2017

Posted on Mar 8, 2018 by in The Screen |

The Oscars have come and gone.  2017 is a thing of the past.  But, as is tradition here at Comic Booked, I’ve compiled my own list of favorites.  The following is a compilation of my thoughts on last year’s movies, listed alphabetically, with genres and sub-genres in parentheses, denoting the theatrical releases with an asterisk.  I’m not going to lie, there weren’t a lot of movies last year, but genre was king in 2017, and I’m totally okay with that…  Be sure to check out my own little “awards” list at the end of the alphabetical one.  Here are the best movies of 2017:
