I’ll be upfront here: I really don’t agree with either the placement or inclusion of a big chunk of the movies included on Paste Magazine‘s 50 Best Movies Of 2017 list. (Notable entries: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, I, Tonya, John Wick Chapter 2, It, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Blade Runner 2049, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Logan, The Killing of a Sacred Deer.) But that doesn’t totally matter, because there are so many movies on here that belong on here, including a few I didn’t see for myself, that they far outweigh the bad. (Our number one? Look at the featured image and put the pieces of that puzzle together for yourself.)
I’m mostly just tickled that My Happy Family made it on here, even if I believe very strongly that it (and also Phantom Thread) demands higher placement. Eh. Can’t win ’em all.
