2017 Summer Power Rankings

As the summer sun sets, Bodhi, the king of Summer movies, judges Hollywood’s 2017 offering of popcorn adventures and low budget indies.

Not a bad summer. In fact, it was pretty good. We got one masterpiece, a few near-great, inventive films, and a wide variety of solid tentpoles and indies. If you’re curious about my thoughts on a movie just check out my reviews in the archives or comment on this page with a question. Hopefully this list will help you see some movies that you may have missed or didn’t know about.

I feel I should mention that Twin Peaks: The Return, which some have tried to argue is a movie, is 100% a TV show. With that said, it’s among the best seasons of television ever made (maybe the greatest TV show, period), and the most daring and creative filmmaking of the decade. All hail David Lynch.

Now, onto the best films of summer 2017. For reference, my top 5 summer films of last year were 1. The Neon Demon (A-, #3 film of the entire year) 2. Indignation (A-, #7 of the year) 3. Don’t Breathe (B+) 4. Hell or High Water (B+) 5. The Nice Guys (B+)
