I was fortunate enough to do something last week that I never seem to get enough time for: a trip to the movies. Along with Tegan and some colleagues from the office, I checked out a premiere of Baby Driver, which is a top heist flick that you should all enjoy if you can.
But it got me wondering: for those of you who have been fortunate to go to the movies more frequently, what are your top flicks for the year so far?
There's been a few stinkers here and there, although two superhero films that seem to have gone down almost universally well are Logan and Wonder Woman. I'm in the annoyed position of having not been able to see either, even though most of the Kotaku/Gizmodo/Lifehacker staffers have, although I did piss everyone off earlier in the year by checking out John Wick 2 when it released in the United States. Karma, I suppose.
During our Japan trip, Tegan and I went and saw Beauty and the Beast, and while that was fairly pleasant I wouldn't be ranking Emma Watson's singing performance at the top of anything. It was an perfectly pleasant film, all things considered, and I was happier for having seen it, but not spectacular. So, the John Wick sequel, Baby Driver and Lion (it was still screening in Japan earlier this year) for me.
What have been your favourite movies of 2017 so far?
