2017 Movie Countdown: The Good (#27-21)

Welcome back to The Ranting SBox’s Annual Movie Countdown (2017 Edition)… or as I like to all it, the 2017 Movie Countdown. For those who are joining us for the first time, this is Part 2 in a 4 part mini-series here at The Ranting SBox blog, where I go through all the 36 movies I saw in the year 2017 and rank them from worst to best. To see the full list of movies I’ll be covering during the countdown, click here. While you’re at it, feel free to catch up on the countdown by checking out the previous installment here.

Last time, we went through some of the year’s less savory offerings as well as some movies I was personally disappointed by. This time it’s time to kick it up a notch with this category simply called “The Good”. The following 7 movies are ones that, while far from excellent, I had a good time watching. What separates a movie in the “Good” category from something in the “Mediocre” one is the element of recidivism. Would I watch this movie again willingly? If the answer to that question is yes, then those films are included here and beyond. Continue reading 2017 Movie Countdown: The Good (#27-21)

If there was any series in Hollywood that deserves a break, it’s the DCEU. The closest equivalent to Disney’s MCU, the young series has yet to prove itself as a viable competitor to the Marvel brand. Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Suicide Squad were unable to find unanimous praise with critics and audiences, and only one of them can really be defined as not a financial disappointment. This made 2017 an incredibly important year for the DCEU, as it may be its last chance to dazzle audience with its two offerings. Each is as important as the other, but only one of them has the misfortune of being first. And so comes the million dollar question: Can Wonder Woman save the DCEU?

Those who have been following me for a while will know that I’m a sucker for a good comic book movie. Comic book movies tend to rank highly on my annual Movie Countdowns, and they’re always my most anticipated films of any given year. However, for as much shine and attention as I give to the many Marvel films that come out each year, I feel that I’ve been neglecting the other major comic book film entity lately: the DCEU. This has not been on purpose, but I do feel it’s about time I remedy that by discussing DC’s latest venture, Suicide Squad. Continue reading SBox Recommends: Suicide Squad (Movie Review)
