Movies worth watching in 2017

2017 has turned out to be a excellent year for Hollywood:). This year we did see some huge blockbusters like Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Transformers: The Last Knight, Wonder Woman, War for the Planet of the Apes, Spider-Man: Homecoming etc. With still half a year left,  2017 still has blockbusters to come like the new Justice League movie and the next Star Wars film:). This is my first post on 2017 movies I liked,I will keep on adding new posts as and when I watch some good 2017 movies:). Lets begin with some 2017 movies I have seen and feel are worth watching this year:).

Get Out:-
Get Out is till now the best movie I have seen so far this year:). Its one of the best horror thriller movie made in a few years. In this movie, it's time for a young African American to meet with his white girlfriend's parents for a weekend in their secluded estate in the woods, but before long, the friendly and polite ambience give way to a nightmare. The movie mainly works due to its unique story and excellent direction by debutante director Jordan Peele:). Also the lead actor Daniel Kaluuya does a good job. Overall, Get Out is a very good movie and one of the freshest horror movies released in the last few years. This is a must watch:).

Genre:- Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Director:- Jordan Peele.
Stars:- Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams.
Bore Meter:- Very scary and very engaging:). No chance of getting bored:).
My Rating:-

Beauty and the Beast:-
Beauty and the Beast is an adaptation of the fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love. In this movie, a young prince, imprisoned in the form of a beast, can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when he meets Belle, the only human girl to ever visit the castle since it was enchanted. What works for the movie is its storytelling. The movie has a wonderful charm to it:). Excellent visuals and wonderfully presented musicals add more to the charm and keep you engaged and smiling throughout the movie. Overall, this a very well made charming romantic movie that is a very good watch:).

Genre:- Fantasy, Musical, Romance
Director:- Bill Condon.
Stars:- Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans.
Bore Meter:- Very charming movie and engaging visuals:). Won't get bored:).
My Rating:-

Logan is another movie on the X-Men mutant hero Wolverine and probably the only Wolverine movie I actually enjoyed:). In this movie, in the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces. What works for the movie is its well written script and direction. This movie is not easy on the eyes as it maintains a dark theme and has many brutal and violent scenes. But this is also a reason why it stands out from other Wolverine movies, as it feels very real. We can see and feel the struggle Logan faces in each and every scene in the movie. A lot of credit goes to Hugh Jackman also for his amazing and real performance. Overall, Logan is a very good movie that may be dark and difficult to watch but also feels very real:).

Genre:- Action, Drama
Director:- James Mangold.
Stars:- Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen
Bore Meter:- Dark, violent and has decent pace:). Won't get bored:).
My Rating:-

Kong: Skull Island:-
Kong Skull Island is a good popcorn entertainer:). In this movie, a team of scientists explore an uncharted island in the Pacific, venturing into the domain of the mighty Kong, and must fight to escape a primal Eden. What works for this movie is the entertainment value it provides and its amazing visual effects:). King Kong has been shown very well in this movie, especially fight scenes involving Kong where he performs like our WWE wrestlers are just pure joy to watch:):). Overall, Kong Skull Island may not have much going in terms of script or story, but just purely on entertainment value, this movie is a good watch:):).

Genre:- Action, Adventure.
Director:- Jordan Vogt-Roberts.
Stars:- Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson
Bore Meter:- Good entertainer:). No chance of getting bored:).
My Rating:-

Ghost in the Shell:-
Ghost in the shell is a good one time watch movie:). In this movie, in the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals.The movie has an okayish script and good visual effects. The movie works because of its good pace, where something or other keeps on happening and audience don't get a dull moment to sit and think too much on the story. Once the movie is over, it may not be that satisfying, but you feel it was a good entertaining watch. Also Scarlett Johansson does a good job as Major. Overall, Ghost in the Shell is a good one time watch movie which you can watch if you have the time:).

Genre:- Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller.
Director:- Rupert Sanders.
Stars:- Scarlett Johansson
Bore Meter:- Has good pace:). Won't get bored:).
