We’re scifi fans, horror fans, and we have opinions.
Here’s a list of what a few of us think are the best and most entertaining movies and shows that 2017 had to offer!
From Andrea Rittschof:
War for the Planet of the Apes: Best of the science fiction this year. The action kept me hooked.
The Shape of Water: Best retelling of a fairy tale I’ve ever seen.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle: This was the most fun I’ve had all year and the ensemble had superb acting.
LEGO Batman; Kept me laughing the entire movie, from beginning to end.
The Space Between Us: Best romance-scifi blend I’ve seen, very well balanced and great chemistry between the leads.
Runaways: One of the best of the new Marvel series.
The Defenders: The team up is awesome and ties well into the other Netflix series.
Stranger Things 2: This captures the eighties feel and the creepy vibe just is perfect.
