The 33 Movies to See in 2017
The douchebaggy Batman was a highlight of The LEGO Movie, so it’s not surprising he is getting his own spin-off. Expect this movie to be better than any of the live-action DC adaptations in 2017.
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and the rest of the crew are back in the sequel to the highly entertaining action-comedy. No reason to expect anything but more of the same.
The 2014 Keanu Reeves action-thriller was a surprising blast. It’s unlikely lightning will strike twice, but that doesn’t make me any less excited to see what director Chad Stahelski cooks up this time.
12. Hidden Figures
This well-made drama about three highly intelligent black women who work for NASA in the early 1960s is among the better movies of 2016, and gets a wide release in 2017.
11. American Made
Tom Cruise re-teams with his Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman for this crime-thriller about an American pilot who becomes a drug smuggler, and then a DEA informant, in the 1980s.
