I loved Wonder Woman. I flew to Taiwan to see it (because it opened here in Japan late August).

Of course, there were many more artistic films that hit with a punch like the now infamous Mother or the war epic Dunkerst even Kimi no Na wa (Japanese film). But the only film I paid to see three times was Wonder Woman.

It'll probably change before the year is out, but definitely Get Out. It is a masterpiece and I honestly cannot wait for the award nominations it will receive *fingers crossed* to be announced. It isn't one of the most critically-acclaimed films of this year for nothing! It still has a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes AND it was a relatively major box office success given its budget. Beyond that stuff though, it's a great film and struck a near-perfect balance of comedy and horror.

My favorite film was Valerian - which bombed at the box office.

This has not been a great year for movies.  Menashe was the best movie I've seen this year but it's in a language fewer than a million people speak.  I think Dunkirk is a good movie that has a chance of winning a bunch of awards.

I agree. This film had so much going for it and I say this even though I watched it already knowing what was going to happen (because I was listening to a CRACKED podcast and didn't pay attention when they said to skip the next few minutes if you didn't want it spoiled.

Also The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, a New Zealand film that was actually released late last year, but is so damned funny that I have to say it is hands down the best comedy film I've seen in the last twelve months.

I'd agree with this. It was creepy and well done for what it was but to call it a masterpiece worthy of all these accolades is patronizing the black writer/director. Love of the film is taste but it's also expected. Get Out does reflect the cultural moment we're in, however, and it will be remembered for that.

I don't see what "patronizing the black writer/director" has to do with anything or why his race should even be considered or whatever, but the movie is a masterpiece because of the suspense, the way it balances out satire and horror and the direction quality. Honestly, it's only flaw is some of the acting. The consensus among professional movie critics and viewers alike all point to it being the number one film of this year so far. It even made a few lists for best film of the decade and century so far. I'm not sure if Peele and the others involved with the film have been following the proper channels to promote the film but if they are, I do believe it will receive significant award nominations this upcoming awards season. The commercial success also cannot be ignored given that it grossed over $253 million off of a $4 million budget. It has already been nominated for several of the initial independent awards that Moonlight won during the last awards season and Get Out has been just as well-received as Moonlight.

I don't watch that many movies when they come out -- my watching habits are pretty random, and I will often only see a movie after it's been out for years -- but of the one's I've seen, Wonder Woman was probably the best.
