Ask me the question in two months and I'll tell you, it's only until Oscar season reaches its peak that I have seen enough movies to come with a Top 5. So far, I only saw Get Out and Mudbound.

No problem, I didn't expect too many people would have their list ready.

Like Elmo, I haven't yet seen several films that have been released in the past two or three months, eve though I've really wanted to and that's the time when my kind of films are usually released. I had two deaths in my family so that stopped my time at the theater for a while. I saw Ladybird, though, tonight, and it was great. I doubt very much that anything I still see will outseat The Florida Project (I'm absolutely crazily obsessed with that film, lol) or Kedi. I suspect Ladybird will stay, too, if you don't mind changing my list from what it was. Now I'd say:

1. The Florida Project
2. Kedi
3. Ladybird
4. Wind River
5. Maudie

This really is a great idea. And I love seeing 'The Florida Project' there. And I like that this year my top five all have female protagonists except for one, which has feline protagonists, lol. 

(The ones I still hope to see include Three Billboards, The Shape of Water, Call Me by Your Name, Loveless, if it comes to my city, and a few other foreign films if they come to my city. I'm sure I'll see 'Shape' soon but 'Three Billboards' has left my city :-( and 'Call Me' won't be here for another couple of weeks. 'Maudie,' although I liked it, is the only one on my list that I'm not very confident about.)

I will make the change but there is definitely no rush. :)  I haven't seen all of the movies I wanted either.

May I replace 'Maudie' with 'Quest?' 

(Although I still have to see a couple more movies, including 'Shape of Water,' so there's no hurry in making that change - this is really more of a bump for suggestions, lol.)

1. Logan
2. Disaster Artist
3. Greatest Showman
4. Coco
5. Spider-Man Homecoming


Idea:  No one has done a IMDb Poll Board Top for   "TV series 2017"

HOping someone can do that.   If no one does, I'll try to make one and make time to keep up with it.  Its hard for me because of work schedule.

Added, as far as the tv series idea goes; I really don't want to do too many of them. If you want to try and make it I would be more than happy to give my top 5. I am assuming it is shows currently airing in 2017 not shows that began in 2017.

Added, I'm a little surprised Three Billboards didn't make your list.

'Good list, S. I want to see Breadwinner and Your Name so much but they're not in my city; this is just one of many reasons that I miss NY. 

ND, I've been debating with myself about 'Three Billboard,' and I'd love to get your perspective. I finally saw it a couple of weeks ago and I definitely liked it but not as much as I expected, especially given that McDonagh wrote one of my three favorite plays, and I thought 'In Bruges' was excellent. The performances were exquisite, especially Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson, the dialogue and cinematography were evocative and painfully beautiful, and the mood was right on key, but I got really tripped up over one detail: I didn't understand McDonagh's choice to have a fire extinguisher in Mildred's car. It seemed like it was there just to get the shot of Mildred trying to put out the fire, which wasn't worth it: I've never seen an extinguisher in anyone's car, unless that's a rural,  midwestern or western thing. It just seemed too contrived for something unnecessary. It would have been just as powerful to see how Mildred would react if she could do nothing but watch, I thought, but it also bothers me that I'm that bothered by it, lol, so I've really been wanting to hear someone else's thoughts.

Some cars do have them but they are usually compact in size ( I can't remember if she had a full size one of not). (if full size) I took it as another thing that speaks to her personality of being overly prepared due to her lack of trust in the town. She seemed like the person that if she saw a fire and no one was helping she would get out of her car and start doing something about it.

Indeed, that does fit her personality. 'Good point. Thank you for that perspective.

I saw Breadwinner and, though it didn't make my top five, i liked it a lot. I saw in on Netflix. I wonder if I would like it even more if I were to see it in a theater instead of seeing it on a laptop screen; I suspect I would.

I still need to see a few films, in particular, Your Name (2016), Mudbound (2017) and Phantom Thread (2017) to finalize and cull my list down to a final five. My working top ten includes Shape of Water (2017), Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017), Blade Runner 2049 (2017), The Greatest Showman (2017), Molly's Game (2017),Their Finest (2016), Get Out (2017), Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) and Gifted (2017). I will update once I have a set five.

I'd like to move A Ghost Story to the top. Everything else can stay in the same order.

NDb,

I just saw The Shape of Water (2017) and it easily made my top 2 for the year. I would like to replace Dunkirk with Shape of Water and then swap its place with Get Out. Therefore, I'd like my new order to be:

1. Coco (2017)
2. The Shape of Water (2017) 
3. Get Out (2017) 
4. Call Me by Your Name (2017)
5. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)
