I usually see at least one movie each week, so here are my favorite movies that I’ve seen this year along with a few of my worst for 2017:

  • Darkest Hour
  • Hidden Figures
  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • Thor: Ragnarok
  • The Greatest Showman

  • Get Out
  • Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2
  • Wonder
  • Gifted
  • The Case for Christ
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming
