My Favorite Movies from 2017

Seeing movies is one of my favorite pastimes, and it’s so much easier to see movies nowadays since things like MoviePass have come into play (if you don’t have one, it’s seriously worth it (even if you only see 1 movie per month!), and especially if you live in a major city where movies can run $15 per screening.

I saw a lot of movies last year, but this year I’m trying to track all of the movies I’m watching with the help of Letterboxd (Goodreads for movies! Follow me here). Here are my 10 favorite movies from 2017 (in no particular order), including trailers so you can check them out for yourself!
