2017 has been a great year for movies Chinabased. We’ve seen some solid entries, some strong sequels, and some forgettable releases. Here is a look back at the best films of 2017.

The Greatest Movies of 2017

First and foremost, we should start with the incredible Avengers: Infinity War. Iron Man, Thor, and Black Widow are in there, and the rest of the team is gone. With the 2017 calendar turning, the focus has naturally reverted back to the great Marvel movies. But that’s not how we’re remember the past, is we? We were all introduced to incredible new characters and storylines, and had some of the best action and pop culture moments of the year. So yes, we’re all obsessed with the Avengers right now.

The Huntsman: The Bloodiest Game of Honor

We’ve all heard complaints about the upcoming Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but the Huntsman: The Bloodiest Game of Honor takes it up a notch by creating an entire world that revolves around the Harry Potter series. The setting is completely unique, from the setting of London and the East End to the setting of a modern-day hunting community. What’s more, the film follows the iconic Peter Rabbit as he becomes a symbol for all of rural England. The film is also able to incorporate elements from other traditions and pop culture moments, like the TV series Red Riding, which takes place in a British countryside.

Get Out

This is one of the films that I will never forget. When I was six, we moved to an urban area and my family grew up watching American TV. We loved our shows, especially the TV shows about misfits, the guerrillas, the misfits, and more. But Get Out is all about the main character, Max, who is a difficult and misunderstood character. He has a heart condition and, while he is in a coma, is dealing with it in real time. The visuals, sound, and storytelling are nothing short of amazing. This is one of the films that can be described as ‘point and clicking’, creating a compelling and chilling story with chilling themes.


The divisive Dunkirk was a real-life story and one of the most shocking and compelling films of the year. The incredibly tight script, incredible cast, and incredible Bonus Content (yes, there are Bonus Content in every Dunkirk film) made this one stand out as a must-see for fans of historical fiction and survivalism. The details of the Dunkirk evacuation, the resistance being put up by the French in the desert, the sheer amount of work that was put into this — it’s mind-bending. The ending, while incredible, is a bit of a let-down because it feels like it should have been a special moment in history. But that’s because we’re meant to feel sympathetic for the French and watch as they are let down by their allies. The human side is also shown well, which adds a lot to the film.


This is one of the few films that I can truly recommend to anyone interested in history. It’s a collection of seven stories, spanning five generations, told within a single film. It is each of the stories based on a different period in human history. In the age of the Renaissance, an unlikely group of individuals rise to the challenge: the she-devILUTION, the she-devILS, the she-devILSII, the she-devILSIII, and the she-devILSIV. The films tell the stories of these individuals in the context of their time, focusing on their goals and how they overcame the obstacles they faced. The cast is a who’s who of history, with George Cukor, Jane Fonda, and Michael Cimino all playing key roles.

128 Hours: An Account of sustained and unbridled fear

The opening credits of 128 Hours show a group of people at a cooking fire, as flames are billowing from their bodies and their surroundings. On the surface, this may seem likeProtective vestiges of a family or a group of friends, but the reality is that it’s members of the British Dorsal Dilemma Survivors, or BDRS, as they are known for their extreme fearfulness. This is the opening sequence to the film, and it is incredibly effective at keeping viewers’ attention. It is one of the most powerful sequences of the year, and the reason it was chosen as the opening of the film.


This is one of the most underrated films of the year. The photography, Editing, and Visuals are simply amazing. There is not one frame that is not fantastic. If a story were told from this film, it would be told as a novel, simply written with the words “Fences” in the opening. Set in England during the spectral realm, and featuring the darkest of night, this film follows the exploits of a young man called Jeremiah, who is given his frame by his grandfather. The frame is a crucial part of the storytelling, as it gives Jeremiah’s story a voice. The childhood pictures that are used to show Fences are of his family, as well as his friends and family, as well as the people he meets. The closing credits feature a song and dance performance from Theetype and a slideshow of famous images from the film.

Darkest Hour

This is one of the few films that have managed to remain true to its source material, while still managing to be amazing. It follows the story of the young Inspector Ledger (Saoirse Ronan) who is sent to China in search of the double-crossing assassin, who is responsible for the death of his entire family. The story follows the Inspector as he searches for the double-crossing assassin and his accomplice in an increasingly post-apocalyptic and dangerous world. The visuals are stunning, and the story is chilling, with a strong message that is both optimistic and dark at the same time. The final act of the film sees the Inspector, along with his friend Shaun, escape through the roof of a house, and into the night. The closing credits feature music by Theda Barcode.


This is a classic Disney movie, with a classic Disney sound and visual, as well as a classic Disney story. The plot follows Moana, a young girl living in a fadeaway city in the South Pacific, as she is challenged by the islanders to return their favorite Things to the city. The plot is simple, but the movie is complex, and has a lot of twists and turns along the way. The best part about Moana is that it doesn’t end until the very end, which means there is plenty of time for dessert before dessert is served. The Disney advertising campaign that portrays Moana as a bright and happy young woman ends with an image of her in bed, as she falls asleep. The closing credits feature a beautiful image of the Princess of Corona, which is what her race is called.

#2. Southpaw

This is one of the most anticipated releases of the year, and it is one of the best. The premise is simple: a man and a woman come to terms with death and venture into the world of sports, where they become assassins and battle each other in an attempt to solve the mystery of the fallen man. The cast is excellent, with Acosta in a career-high performance and Michael Bierns, who plays the fictional valet, playing a very unique character. The dark and difficult subject matter is brought to life well by the great cinematography and the score by Bryan Glackenski.

#1. Baby Driver

The best and most underrated film of the year, Baby Driver, is about a little boy who becomes a big-screen star thanks to his mother’s help. The film follows the adventures ofoan artist who, along with his best friend, real-life hero, Paul Newman, discovers the true power of computer graphics and the internet in the age of internet connectivity. The plot follows the childhood of Paul Newman, as he attempts to break into the movie industry as an artist, and the rise of his friend, an internet user. One of the most amazing aspects of the film is how it relates to the current state of entertainment and marketing, as the two main characters are one and the same as they are helping to change the way people view themselves as adults through technology.
