New from Kevin Wozniak on Kevflix: Decade Rewind: The Best Movies of 2017

As the 2010’s have officially come to an end, I will be looking back at each cinematic year to give a personal decade retrospective of the best movies and performances of each year.  I will break down my Top 10 movies of each year, along with my favorite performances from that year.  I will also be listing my favorite’s from each genre, like Best Animated Movie and Best Action Movie, as well as best of the technical aspects, like Best Cinematography and Best Screenplay.  This will all culminate into my picks for the best movies and performances of the decade.

*Rankings of movies and performances are numbered from 1-5, with 1 being the best movie/performance.

*Gifs for each category are not specifically of the “winners” of each category, just one of the nominees.

 

 

 

 

THE YEAR: 2017

When thinking back at the decade of movies, 2017 is always the year the stands out.  On a personal level, Kevflix was growing rapidly and I was seeing multiple movies each week.  Thankfully, 2017 was a truly fantastic year for movies, possibly the best of the decade.  When making my top ten that year and even revisiting it now, the list was incredibly tough to make.  This is the only year of the decade where making a top twenty would be as tough as making a top ten.  Films like Blade Runner 2049War for the Planet of the Apes, The Big SickI, TonyaBPM, and Star Wars: Epiode VIII – The Last Jedi are movies I truly adore, yet failed to make my top ten.  Here are my picks for the best movies and performances of 2017.
