Film Junk’s Best and Worst Movies of 2017

bestandworst2017

We unveiled our favourite movies of the year earlier this week on the most recent episode of the Film Junk Podcast, but for ease of reference (or for those who can’t be bothered to listen) here is a quick rundown of our picks. Of course, if you want more in-depth discussion, you’ll still need to listen the show. In retrospect, there was a lot of overlap on our lists although only 3 movies were shared between all of our top 10s (which seems to be the norm). Esteemed podcast guest Zak also provided us with his personal top 10 list as well. What were your favourite movies of 2017?

Around the Web:



  • Carlos

    Didn’t make many lists, but I loved ‘Lucky’.
    A beautiful character study from THE greatest ‘character actor’ of
    the last few decades.

    Also, Episode 8 of Twin Peaks: The Return was better than anything I saw in theaters last year. So many powerful images, and an atmosphere that was unike anything else out there.

  • Deven Science

    I wish more people could have seen Loving Vincent. It was my top movie of the year.
