Best-films-of-2017-so-far-920x584.jpg

via timeincuk.net

Previously I have written articles disclosing my favourite films of the year. I started this blog in 2014, so naturally there are lists on the site for 2014, 2015 and 2016. I enjoyed writing these pieces because they let me express my taste in film but they were also very time consuming – after all, I essentially re-review every film I mention – so I’ve decided to go for a change of tactics this time around.

Rather than comprehensively explaining why I loved 10-15 films from 2017 I have decided to post a list of the 86 films that I saw last year (by which I mean films which had a UK release in 2017 either in cinemas or via streaming services). In my view this inspires debate and ensures that I’m not repeating information that I’ve covered in reviews on this blog or on the two other sites that I write for.

If you want to read my thoughts on some of the best/worst films of last year then you can find them here – http://www.thenerdx.com/top-15-films-of-2017-part-1/, https://vampiresquid.co.uk/11-best-horror-films-of-2017/, https://vampiresquid.co.uk/7-biggest-horror-movie-let-downs-of-2017/ – but please be aware that the semantics of those lists account for why I ordered some films differently to how I’ve ordered them here.

This list is ordered by how much I enjoyed a film rather than which film is the best, although for the benefit of clarity I have added headers to say which films I think are bad, average, good and great. This is to ensure that my placing certain films towards the middle of the list doesn’t lead people to think that I didn’t enjoy them.
