Celebrating the Top Movies we Enjoyed in 2017

A year ends come so fast and often we forget to pause and think back at the great movies we enjoyed. It is this thought that takes us back to the best film releases in 2017. Last year was one filled with great documentaries and outstanding blockbusters proving that producers find many new innovative ways to entertain moviegoers.

Dunkirk


When it comes dramatic films about WWII, Dunkirk is the best as Christopher Nolan get moviegoers to relive the evacuation of France’s beaches back in 1941. Fissured between three interwoven perspectives air, sea and land and different time frames, shot in 70mm IMAX, it is the ideal format that offers every viewer an overwhelming experience. Nolan’s portrayal of the war gives little care to the detail of the contextual background or even the characters. Instead, he plunges filmgoers into the chaos submerging several infantrymen including Harry Styles and Fionn Whitehead. Tom Hardy led fighter pilots and commanders such as Kenneth Branagh as well as boatmen. All, of whose cowardice, selfishness and sacrifice, as well as heroism, are shattered into relief by Christopher Nolan’s grand set pieces. Through Dunkirk’s inventive structure, superb staging and towering scale the film melds the macro and micro with a formal daring that is breath-taking, along the way emphasizing the unmatched power of experiencing an epic film.

Lady Macbeth


An adaptation of the 1865 novel by Nikolai Leskov, Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District, and it is clear that “hell hath no fury like a woman beleaguered”. The coiled intensity and a breakout performance of ruthless cunningness, Katherine played by Florence Pugh, is a young woman forced into marriage with the older landlord. His nastiness is only exceeded by that of his authoritarian father played by Christopher Fairbank.

This unwanted union she finds herself in is ubiquitous with problems right from the start, and even though the film uses Shakespeare’s referencing title, its path is not only original but also horrifying. It is a twisted drama based on gender-warfare-issues, rooted in contentious racial issues, employing a meticulous formalism recounting the merciless tale of Katherine’s attempts to attain liberation. The film is refined and placid on the inside yet pitiless and ferocious on the inside.

Wormwood


Wormwood is Errol Morris’s revolutionary hybrid of fictional and non-fiction story-telling-modes, no matter how you look at it, classify it or categorise it, it is 2017s towering cinematic success. It is the second release of 2017 and follows the B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography, a film recounting the twisted Frank Olson saga in 1953. Out of a hotel room in New York City’s window, a biochemist’s death first seen as suicide becomes the side-effect of a mind control program of the CIA.

Wormwood is built out of a penetrating collage. It is a psychologically, hallucinatory, psychologically that plays like a damning indictment of malfeasance, a pulse-pounding thriller, and a chilling portrait of both elusiveness of the truth and a self-destructive obsession. Wormwood is a masterpiece breathing new life into documentaries while it also further confirms the superior greatness of Morris.

Koukaku no Pandora #1 & Sekkou Boys #1

Okay, so this post is a tad late. I wanted to do one post per day so I held off of reviewing these, but stuff came up and I simply haven’t had time to watch any anime.

I just tried watching Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R #1 before making this post, but got interrupted halfway, right before we’re getting to the meat of the story. So I only saw the boring setup part and not the hook. Bleh.

So, just a quickie review for Koukaku and Sekkou, since I’m short on time. They’re both okay. Koukaku has a vibe like it’s based on a manga from the late 90s/early 00s. It’s pretty okay but perhaps a tad underwhelming. I saw half of the second episode, which looked pretty good.

Sekkou Boys, same deal. Kinda good but not quite hooking me with the first episode.

It’ a shame. This season looks like there’s a lot of possibly visually decent though somewhat mediocre series and well, real life just ain’t letting me see if there’s any gems. Bummer.

Haruchika #1

It seems my time away from anime has built up my tolerances and I’m now able to watch entire episodes even if I’m not instantly hooked.

Haruchika opens seemingly like it might be yet another boring K-On!! wannabe but quickly becomes intriguing by hinting at stuff actually happening.

In any case, while I was afraid it was going to be a pure “comfy” series like K-On!! and its ilk, it turned out to be pretty heavy on the mystery-slash-puzzle solving side of things. On the other hand, the mystery it deals with lacks “bite”. The result is that it’s not quite comfy nor mysterious, but more of an abominable hybrid, a crime against nature called… “comfy mystery”.

The show’s not bad if you’re into comfiness. In fact, it’s a bit better in that sense because it offers a little bite. But in you’re into “bite”, then it’s possibly a tad too dull (in terms of bite, but the show’s hardly super exciting either).

There are worst comfy shows out there, but at least this one has the best cat. We first see the cat whilst licking its balls and then walking off before it could be petted… so yeah, like a real cat, as opposed to the idealized/romanticized cat, which is basically a less hyper puppy.
