The Lost City of Z (2017)
Really good performances, especially from Hunnam and Pattinson. I wish that this had come to a theater somewhere near where I live.
T2 Trainspotting (2017)
Pretty close to a perfect sequel to Trainspotting.
Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
Such a good sequel and visually stunning film and of course it flopped in the box office just like the original did.
Baby Driver (2017)
Edgar Wright is my favorite director and I got what I wanted with this. The use of music in this was perfect and the car stunts just so good.
The Handmaiden (2016)
South Korea produces great films and I was waiting for a release for this so long. Finally got it from UK in the summer and watched it almost immediately. Chan-wook Park is also a great director so expextations were high. And the film delivered. The acting is good and the plot was really interesting. The cinematographer Chung-hoon Chung did such a great job, this was one of the most beautiful looking films I saw this year.
Hell or High Water (2016)
Chris Pine and Ben Foster were so good in this, Pine especially surprised me with his performance.
What a way for Hugh Jackman to leave the role. And finally we got Wolverine with some blood on the claws.
Wonder Woman (2017)
Finally we got to see Wonder Woman on the big screen.
This was intense experience. The cinematography was just great. And the soundtrack adds to the intense and opressive atmosphere that the film had.
Captain Fantastic (2016)
I saw this just before the Oscar's and wanted Viggo Mortensen to win so much.This had such great performances and touching story too.
John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)
The fight choreography and the execution of the stunts in these movies is just so good. Also since those are working the film is shot and edited in a way that you can tell what's happening on the screen and enjoy it.
This had some really funny moments and the ending/ shootout was just great scene.
The Devil's Candy (2016)
Might not have been that scary but this was good. Great soundtrack and visuals. Also those paintings were creepy as hell.
Swiss Army Man (2016)
Pretty looking film about friendship and there's also
a farting corpse. I really liked this more than I thought I would.

Nocturnal Animals (2016)
Great acting performances (Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Michael Shannon were the best ones) and the story was interesting even if the book's story might have been a bit better I also liked the real life scenes.
This was really entertaining weird film that got pretty dark at times. One of those films that you either like or hate. But definitely worth seeing.
Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Tom Holland was great Spider-man and Peter Parker. Michael Keaton was great villain as the Vulture too. This was just fun movie to watch. I rewatched this recently and I might have liked it even more on the second viewing.
The Girl with All the Gifts (2016)
The plant zombies and the cities overrun with vegetation gave this similar feeling to the Last of Us and I liked it quite much.
Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
This was a really funny movie but there were also moments that the humor kinda ruined. Also some of the humor was a bit too immature and not in a good way. But overall the movie was fun action comedy and also the best Thor film.
The Wailing (2016)
This starts out slowly but then gets better and better. I've been meaning to watch this again and with better understanding of the Korean mythology/lore (I read about it after seeing the film first time).
Get Out (2017)
I watched this really tired and nodded off multiple times in the last third. This probably deserves a higher spot on the list but sinceI haven't seen this second time yet I left it here.
Logan Lucky (2017)
Funny movie with great acting performances.
Law of the Land (2017)
This year surprised me with the quality of Finnish films or films that match my taste. This was a western in Lapland with pretty good acting. Ville Virtanen is my favorite Finnish actor and he was the best part of the film here too.
Never been that big of a fan of these or the older ones but this film really surprised me with the quality. Andy Serkis is so good in the lead and that was one thing that I had liked in all of these films before too. This film raised my expectations towards the Reeves' Batman trilogy high.
The Siege of Jadotville (2016)
One of the biggest surprises of the year for me. The acting was good and the action intense and when the Irish forces start to run out of supplies I was on the edge of my seat.
Ghost in the Shell (2017)
This film actually made me want to see the anime films finally. And I bought them in the same evening after this. Visually this was one of the best of the year, even if the CGI in the Spidertank scene was on the weaker side at times. Also Takeshi Kitano is in this and has really great scene in the film.
After all the wait this might not have been as good as I had hoped. Scorsese is my favorite so my expectations were really high. The film is really beautiful to look at but to be honest the subject matter really isn't my favorite things in the world and I got a bit bored at times. The acting was really good too.
War on Everyone (2016)
John Michael McDonagh was one of my favorite "new" directors with The Guard and Calvary already and this film didn't disappoint. Alexander Skarsgård was so funny in this.
Seen this twice now, no other film made me laugh more this year. Especially the second time watching this with my friends and we were a bit intoxicated. This is just weird film.
Films that didn't quite make the top 30
The Unknown Soldier (2017)
The 80's version is still my favorite but this was really good adaption of the book and a good war film too. I was scared that some casting choices were going to ruin this but was glad to see that they did good.
This would have been even better if the boxing scenes were better. The acting is really good and I really liked the romance and chemistry between the leads.
I'm not the biggest fan of M. Night Shyamalan but I really like Unbreakable so after learning that this was part of the same universe I got really interested to see this. Also James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy added to that. And both were great in this especially McAvoy.
Gerald's Game (2017)
Mike Flanagan has gotten better and better with every film of his that I have seen since Absentia. Last year's Hush might be my favorite of his filmography but Gerald's Game is close second. This film had great acting and atmosphere.
Didn't find this scary and some of the CGI bothered me a bit but everything else was really good and enjoyable.
Free Fire (2017)
The cast and the humor were good and this was really enjoyable watch.
The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)
This film managed to creep me out couple of times which was the first in a long time (the first Conjuring probably.) and overall the atmosphere is so good in this film. Also Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox were great together as father and son.
Like Mystery Road this had great cinematography and direction. The story is again really familiar detective/missing person story but the acting and beautiful Australian scenery kept this interesting. I like the Jay Swan as character and would watch a third one of these.
Train to Busan (2016)
The confined setting of the train really made the film so much better. Running zombies aren't my favorites but those things added to narrow passageways of the train worked.
