    1. Cult of Chucky
    2. Get Out
    3. Okja
    4. Ingrid Goes West
    5. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
    6. Swagger of Thieves

    8. Blade Runner 2049
    9. Jigsaw
    10. Ghost in the Shell

    This is out of 13 I've seen from the year and I don't love any of them (13½ if I count seeing the juicier half of I, Tonya when it was on TV here). It's surprising I've even seen that many.

    I've seen this one compared to The Bling Ring. Watching it myself very soon.

    The depiction of Instagram influencer types is so accurate it hurts. Will check out The Bling Ring sometime.

    I couldn't get more than halfway through Ingrid Goes West. Predictable easy social media satire that felt like a shit version of a Black Mirror episode.

    Yeah, a shit version of a Black Mirror episode is still enough to make my list in a 2010s year though. I thought I recognised Wyatt Russell from somewhere too.

    1. Brawl in Cell Block 99 (S. Craig Zahler)
    2. Phantom Thread (Paul Thomas Anderson)
    3. The Killing of a Sacred Deer (Yorgos Lanthimos)
    4. Outrage Coda (Takeshi Kitano)
    5. The Florida Project (Sean Baker)
    6. Blade Runner 2049 (Denis Villeneuve)
    7. Good Time (Safdie Bros)
    8. Ghost in the Shell (Rupert Sanders)
    9. Bright (David Ayer)
    10. Logan (James Mangold)

    I deleted my original list because I had a pile of 2017 films to watch, plus I rewatched some I already listed, so I anticipated some big changes but other than some placement shuffling the fucking list stayed the same anyway... oops. :tickled:

    Changed my header photo after Wainds used the same one in his list, what a cunt. :D

    Honourable mentions: I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore, Song of Granite, Dayveon, Sweet Virginia, SPL: Paradox, mother!, John Wick: Chapter 2, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

    Maybe I'm just a fanboy but I think Ghost in the Shell was the most underrated (if I'm honest, more like sabotaged by accusations of whitewashing) movie of 2017. Visually it looked cool and just how you'd imagine a Ghost in the Shell adaption should look, ScarJo aside (though I liked her in the role personally) the casting was awesome too. Pilou Asbæk as Batou was perfect in particular, and it really sucks that the toxic minutiae around the film has probably killed any chance that an adaption of Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence will ever exist.

    Instead of just making a dogshit action film they actually attempted to ask the same philosophical questions as the source material, without giving us any cheap answers that Hollywood films usually do. Pilou Asbæk would have made a killer lead for the sequel, and he just looked so cool too.

    Now that would make for an amazing double billing.

    It was there until literally a minute before I posted the first results, when I deleted it so as to not triple post. If you didn't see it in the 24+ hours it was there, you still wouldn't have seen it in time. If you had some big changes to make to your list I don't mind deleting the results so they can be tallied again, but you'll be doing the tallying and posting of the winners.

    Up to you. ;)
