The Five Most Important Movies of 2017 So Far

There is still plenty of time for more movies to come out in 2017, but it can’t be denied that there have been some outstanding examples so far. Some of these are serious in nature, whereas others are much less so. This is but one person’s opinion on the five most important movies that have been released in 2017 so far:

Get Out

Get Out was created by Jordan Peele, who most people will recognize as a comedian rather than someone involved with horror movies. Regardless, said horror movie is interesting in that it was inspired by The Stepford Wives, so it should come as no surprise to learn that it has something to say about the current state of society. To be exact, it focuses on the racism that exists even in those who see themselves as being open-minded, with particular focus on the fact that missing black Americans receive less attention from law enforcement even though they make up a full third of said individuals.

I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore

For people who want something funny as well as exciting, there is an excellent solution in the form of I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore, which won a Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. In brief, it is about a nurse named Ruth who teams up with her neighbor Tony to recover her stolen possessions, thus leading into a series of ridiculous events. There is a fair amount of darkness at the idea that most people are selfish and unpleasant, but at the same time, it offers hope by championing the idea that there are also people who are neither of those two things.

Logan

Logan is a fitting conclusion for Hugh Jackman’s role as Wolverine, which has seen him play the same character in nine separate movies situated over 17 years. In brief, it saw an aging Wolverine as well as an aged Professor X seeking to bring a gene-engineered child to meet up with other gene-engineered children who had been rescued from a secret lab, with the result that it resembles a western more than a superhero movie in spite of its basic premise. Overall, Logan is an interesting reminder that not all superhero movies have to be cut from the same cloth.

Split

In recent times, M. Night Shyamalan has become something of a joke, but with Split, he reminded us that he is still capable of making great movies. Like its name suggests, Split is a horror movie about a man with 23 personalities who has kidnapped three women in anticipation of the emergence of a 24th personality called the Beast. As a result, the actor who played the man with 24 personalities, James McAvoy, deserves major kudos for his performance in the challenging role.

Wonder Woman

There is a self-reinforcing perception that female leads can’t sell action movies, meaning that the success of Wonder Woman with more than $745 million at the box office is an important counter-point to that perception. Furthermore, it makes an interesting point about evil being something much more complicated than an incarnate monster that can be killed, though whether different people seem to have different opinions about whether this point was executed well or not.
