I’m switching things up a bit and keeping the films from 2016 that I’m still trying to catch up on separate from the 2017 releases.  You can see updated 2016 rankings using the top left icon.  

Q1 2017 was actually the strongest first quarter I can remember.  Generally A+ films do not come out in January through March but we got two this year in Get Out and Logan. We’ll see if we get anymore in Q2.  My most anticipated for April – June are:

  1. The Big Sick (Sundance darling)
  2. Alien: Covenant (possibly best cast of the year)
  3. Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2
  4. The Lost City of Z
  5. Baywatch (R-Rated Rock is the best Rock)
  6. The Mummy (Tom Cruise alert!!!)

You might notice Fate of the Furious is missing from this list.  I don’t have anything to back this up (I haven’t even seen the trailer), but I just have a hunch that the 8th installment of the franchise is going to be one of the biggest let downs of the year.  When it comes to sports I have terrible intuition on who’s going to cover a spread, but I’m pretty confident in my ability to predict Rotten Tomato scores.  So here goes, The Fate of the Furious will get a 59% or less.  You heard it here first.
