It is impossible to dispute the fact that 2017 has been an amazing year for movie lovers. As a matter of fact, some of the movies that we've seen so far can only be described as outstanding.

Here are our best five movies for the year 2017, so far

1. Get Out

Get out play

Get out

(thrillist.com)
 

Released: February 24

Cast

  1. Daniel Kaluuya

  2. Allison Williams

  3. Catherine Keener

  4. Bradley Whitford

Director: Jordan Peele

About the movie

From my point of view, the storyline of Get Out is classic enough to make the list of 2017 best movies.

In the movie, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the stage of meeting the parents. She invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean.

At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.

Get Out is a classic. A movie to watch

#getout One of the best movies I've seen in a long time. All the hidden messages and truth on racism & the appropriations of black culture.

6:26 AM - 27 Feb 2017

2.  Logan Lerman ✔@LoganLerman

Do yourself a favor and see @JordanPeele 's film #GetOut this weekend. It's a masterpiece. Just see it. Please. #getouttothefuckingtheaters

3.    @liestoldbyT

The moments where all the black people in the theater clapped at the appropriate times during #getout had me dead. Thank you @JordanPeele

6:24 AM - 25 Feb 2017

4.  Jay Dav-O @ChocnessMonsta

#GetOut is being called "racist" and "anti-white."

Which means they had no idea it was going to be well received.

Go see it twice.

3:55 PM - 25 Feb 2017

5. Bell Bibs DeVoe @MBibs

Don't let the Oscars mishap distract you from the fact that @GetOutMovie did $30.5 mil in its 1st weekend on a $4.5 mil budget. #GetOut

2. I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore

I don't feel at home in this world anymore play

I don't feel at home in this world anymore

(newonnetflixuk.com)
 

Released: February 17

Cast

  1. Melanie Lynskey

  2. Elijah Wood

  3. David Yow

  4. Jane Levy

Director: Macon Blair

About the movie

Ruth (Lynskey), a nurse, and her rattail-sporting, weapon-obsessed neighbor Tony (Wood) hunt down a local burglar, in this maniacal mystery.

Blair's not the first person to find existential enlightenment at the end of an amateur detective tale, but he might be the first to piece one together from cursing octogenarians, ninja stars, Google montages, gallons of Big Red soda, upper-deckers, friendly raccoons, exploding body parts, and the idiocy of humanity.

Balancing the tension of a Cormac McCarthy thriller with the wacky edge of Will Ferrell's wildest comedies, I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore is a cathartic neo-noir that drives donuts around our everyday troubles.

Released: April 14

Cast

  1. Charlie Hunnam

  2. Robert Pattinson

  3. Sienna Miller

  4. Tom Holland

Director: James Gray

About the movie

The Lost City of Z  is the rare film to channel nature's bewitching powers. Hunnam, rousing and physical, stars as Percy, a turn-of-the-20th-century military man who embarks to South America to map Bolivia and cleanse his family name of scandal.

Months of starvation, illness, piranha-infested waters and encounters with natives end with the near-discovery of a hidden, advanced civilization.

Gray makes room for court scenes, WWI battles, tender family drama, and a musical score that can stand alone.

But in the end, the verdant unknown of Amazonia that has its way with Fawcett and our senses, reflecting a profound component of human nature.
