The 33 Movies to See in 2017
20. Patriots Day
Mark Wahlberg stars in this relatively accurate and engaging portrayal of the Boston Marathon bombings, which, as tragic as the event was, was more or less destined to become a movie.
19. The Beguiled
Sofia Coppola directs Elle Fanning, Kirsten Dunst and Nicole Kidman in this remake of the Clint Eastwood drama, about an injured Union soldier who takes refuge at a Confederate girl’s boarding school.
Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson star in this sci-fi thriller about astronauts who discover life on Mars (bad things happen).
17. Justice League
Having grown up as a fan of DC Comics, this movie would have been rated higher had Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. not consistently established that they have no idea what they’re doing.
M. Night Shyamalan is back with another concept thriller, which has James McAvoy playing a young man with split personality disorder—oh, and who is also a psychopath.
