Film Threat’s Top 10 Movies of 2017

Lists. People on the internet love lists. Lists are powerful. Lists are meaningless. Lists really matter. Lists are not important and stupid. No, you’re stupid. And that’s how the conversation generally goes about lists of movies on the internet. 

We could argue about lists all day, but our favorite thing to debate passionately is movies. This year the combined Film Threat writers and staff viewed nearly 1,000 films. And after all of that fighting, our list bears a striking resemblance to other “Top” or “Best” of the year lists. We may have wasted our lives, but we won’t waste yours. We broke our list up into two… Top 10 Movies (in wide theatrical release) and Top 10 Independent Movies (in limited release). Enjoy.
