The 5th Annual Coopies! Top 5 Films from 2017

The Poopie Coopie (Most Disappointing Movie of the Year) - American Made
Even as an eternal Tom Cruise fan (and knowing what he's capable of delivering), I just don't understand how this film was so widely accepted as it was in 2017. It felt sloppy, chaotic. Cruise's Barry Seal protagonist character never really did it for me and at the end of the day it just felt like a messier more mediocre version of Blow.

And now without further ado, the 2017 Coopies from 5 to 1. 

5. Lady Bird

4. Dunkirk

3. Good Time

2. Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri

1. A Ghost Story
Nothing lingered with me after 2017 like A Ghost Story. It's dreary, slow, cold. But it's so hypnotic and has such heavy and memorable imagery. In a way it feels authentic. Like if you actually passed, were not able to let go of some place or some person or some thing - you would be stuck in this nothingness dimension. This lovesick netherworld. Emotional purgatory. David Lowery really created an outstanding film here - and had the artistic balls to put a sheet over an Oscar winner for close to 90 minutes.

Here is a list of the 2017 Films I saw:
A Ghost Story
Alien: Covenant
American Made
Baby Driver
Beauty and the Beast
Blader Runner 2049
Brawl in Cell Block 99
Get Out
Good Time
I Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore
It Comes at Night
Kong Skull Island
Lady Bird
Lost City of Z
Murder on the Orient Express
Phantom Thread
Spiderman: Homecoming
T2 Trainspotting
The Big Sick
The Boss Baby
The Girl with all the Gifts
The Shape of Water
Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri
Wind River
