My Top Ten Films of 2017

Another late Top Ten list, but I wanted to watch as many potential #ConTENders as possible before I made my final tally. Then, I found myself with more work in television than ever before. And yet, I STILL missed some big films. But, we will get into that soon enough. Catch up with my Top 15 of 2015, and my Top Ten of 2016 if you’d like.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri #ConTENders 2017

Can Martin McDonagh do no wrong? Or maybe the better question is can Frances McDormand do no wrong? I went into Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri knowing practically nothing. I knew that Frances McDormand had been getting a lot of Oscar buzz, that this film was directed by Martin McDonagh, and that three billboards may be involved (hey, to be fair many indie films don’t necessarily evoke their titles).

And I wasn’t let down. What I know now after coming out of the film is that Frances will most certainly win her category at this year’s Oscars, Sam Rockwell will win for Best Supporting Actor, and a two-hour film can transcend its runtime and stay in your mind for days.

“Hell or High Water” #ConTENders *Spoiler-Free

Oscar Season has officially begun.

I just came out of the recent Crime/Drama two-hander, written by Taylor Sheridan, and directed by David Mackenzie:

hell-or-high-water-poster

Hell or High Water is a smart and seditious look into the darker side of financial ruin. The Howard brothers, Tanner and Toby (played by Ben Foster and Chris Pine, respectively), are both on the wrong side of the social system: The former recently released from prison, and the latter struggling to keep his family’s ranch from the clutches of their local Texas Midland Bank.Read More »
