It’s the time of year again, isn’t it? Where everybody and their mother who writes about, criticizes, reviews, reports on, blogs about, BMWs about and generally just loves and is interested in movies comes up with their own list of Favorite Movies so why should I be any exception. You’ve already got my list of Least Favorite Movies and so that I could end the year on a positive note, here’s my list of Favorite Movies for 2017.
Notice that I say that these are my Favorite Movies. Not the ones that I think were the best. I ain’t gunna fall into that trap. I know better. Name any movie that you think is the best and somebody will jump up with an argument for why it was the worst. No, these are movies that I enjoyed watching the most for whatever reason.
Before I jump in I’d like to thank all of you who have been so good enough to not only read my reviews but leave a comment to let me know how much you’ve enjoyed reading them. It truly is heartwarming and gratifying when I get a comment or email from a fellow movie lover thanking me for steering them to a movie they might otherwise have missed and/or ignored. I don’t take your support for granted, I assure you.
This is a Favorite Twelve List instead of a Favorite Ten because…well, just because. And besides, everybody does a Top Ten. Why not be odd? And if there’s a movie that you don’t see on the list that you think should be and wonder why it isn’t, you can safely take it as a given that either I didn’t see it, or it simply wasn’t one of my Favorites. Okay? Okay. So here’s My Favorite Twelve Movies of 2017. Happy New Year and I’ll see you in 2018.
