2017 has been a big year for movies. We saw the first Wonder Woman film in her 75 year history, Wolverine die, a touching story of love that transcends illness and circumstance, and more. Here are the best reviewed movies of 2017, according to Rotten Tomatoes. It’s interesting to note that of the list (we used the adjusted scores), four were comic book-based movies, five were in the sci-fi/fantasy genre, one was horror, and two had female leads. How many of these films made your "Best of" list?
10. 'Wonder Woman'
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 92 percent Fresh Fans were vocal about their love for how the at times stirring adventure focused more on Wonder Woman’s power, compassion, and strength instead of the sexualization to which female superheroes are often subject. The film broke several box office records on his way to making movie history with the biggest domestic opening for a film directed by a woman.
9. 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'
RT Score: 92 percent Fresh Not only did "Spider-Man: Homecoming" give us a deeper look at the famous web-slinger, it gave us a chance to see the world of Marvel superheroes from a fresh perspective. Tom Holland’s Peter Parker steals the show.
8. 'Thor: Ragnarok'
RT Score: 92 percent Fresh Thor's best movie gives fans plenty of action -- Thor vs. Hulk's arena battle FTW! -- and way more than enough laughs. Critics and fans alike were charmed by all the humor and Tessa Thompson's badass turn as Valkyrie.
RT Score: 92 percent Fresh This intense war drama, about a pivotal WWII battle and rescue op, was hailed as director Christopher Nolan’s best work, taking in $525 million worldwide. That makes it the highest-grossing World War II film of all time. Nolan's depiction of the evacuation of Dunkirk rom the land, sea, and air proved to be riveting summer fare and awards bait.
6. 'War for the Planet of the Apes'
RT Score: 93 percent Fresh The next -- and final -- chapter in Caesar's story finds him on the frontline in the battle between damn, dirty ape and war-minded humans. The film underperformed at the box office, but delivered scary-good CG apes and Pixar-level emotional beats that make this one of the best threequels and franchise-cappers ever made.
5. 'Baby Driver'
RT Score: 93 percent Fresh Fun fact about writer-director Edgar Wright's effortless musical/car chase caper: Critics were sent the script with a drive containing the soundtrack and directions on listening to it while reading.
RT Score: 93 percent Fresh Hugh Jackman's crazy-good performance marked his last time going Snikt! In the process, his final Wolverine film blew fans away -- especially because of young Daphne Keen's X23. And Patrick Stewart gives a career-best performance as Charles Xavier, who also says goodbye.
3. 'The Big Sick'
RT Score: 98 percent Fresh This awards contender is a poignant and hilarious love story about defying convention and the odds. When it's not making you smirk and laugh, it's bringing you to tears.
2. 'Get Out'
RT Score: 98 percent Fresh Jordan Peele wrote the script for his directorial debut, which broke box office records and became a modern horror classic on its way to garner must-deserved awards-season attention.
1. 'Lady Bird'
RT Score: 100 percent Fresh This deeply poignant and witty comedy-drama is the best (and most) reviewed movie in RT history. If this movie doesn't take home at least one Oscar, 2017 is more effed up than we thought.
