Movies of 2017 - An Early Look

This is generally the kind of post I do in November, but I felt like taking an early look. What I found was a list of mostly remakes and sequels. It's really kind of sad. This list will likely change before the end of the year, but for now, here's what we've got.

So that's a list of what to me are the notable films, both apparently good and expectedly bad. But there are also a ton of reboots and sequels. Apparently someone noticed that people were making money from remakes of 80s films. Check this out.

And then there are the remakes.

Nearly all of these are completely unnecessary. I'd rather have original movies flop than have to live in a world where World War Z 2, Trainspotting 2 and another Transformers movie exist. The first World War Z movie stole the name of an amazing book and slapped it on an unrelated zombie film. It was almost as bad as another Transformers movie murdering my childhood.
