Much was made about how the 2017 summer movie box office was an absolute disaster for the studios, but I don’t know, from a quality standpoint I thought Q3 was really solid!  No film was more tailor made for Rated Greg in recent memory than Atomic Blonde.  American Made might be the best performance of Tom Cruise’s 35-year career (seriously, he better get an Oscar nom).  War for the Planet of the Apes is one of the most mature CGI fueled films ever.  Okja is the best Netflix original from its relatively young catalog.  Not to mention Dunkirk, which is the odds on favorite to lead all films in award nominations and IT, only the most profitable September opening of all time.

Studios generally save the best for last, so if Q4 is able to match Q3 in terms of quality I would say 2017 has been a total success (well for movies….probably not for society).  Rated Greg’s most anticipated for Q4:

  1. Blade Runner 2049
  2. Call Me By Your Name
  3. Molly’s Game
  4. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
  5. The Disaster Artist
  6. The Meyerowitz Stories
  7. Last Flag Flying
  8. The Florida Project
  9. Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  10. I, Tonya
