Oh, how time flies. This is my fourth year doing these “power rankings,” so most of you know the drill. I’ve watched enough movies at this point in the year to unveil my rankings, and I’ll continue to update this list as I watch more films until the end of December.
It took a while, but I’m finally ready to unveil my movie power rankings for 2017, which will be updated as I continue to watch more films throughout the year. With this list, you can briefly glimpse my favorite movies of any given year and how they compare.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is about to hit wide release, and the critics are already sharing their take on the Marvel sequel. To keep you unspoiled, I compiled some of the best reviews of the film and shared the numbers, especially against how they stack up against
This week, the Cinemaholics become, as Vin Diesel would put it, faaammmmillllyyyy. By reviewing The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment of the little cars franchise that could. I’m joined this week by Will Ashton (CutPrintFilm, We Got This Covered) and Maveryke Hines (our producer) for a fast talk about the franchise at large, how we rank the movies, and of course, a featured review for the new film.
Later, we tackle plenty of other big releases. Free Fire from A24 and starring Brie Larson gets a mini review, along with The Discovery, a Netflix original starring Jason Segal, Rooney Mara, and Robert Redford. We spend a lot of time debating Adam Sandler’s new Netflix movie, Sandy Wexler, which divided the Cinemaholics quite fiercely. And we also dive a bit into the first half of the first season of 13 Reasons Why, a new Netflix series starring Dylan Minnette (a name we all get wrong during the show).

On the latest Cinemaholics, Will Ashton and I review Beauty and the Beast and Season 1 of Iron Fist. In doing so, our main question is whether or not critics and audiences are right to be so divided on these movies.
Later, we dig into some mini reviews for Big Little Lies, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Nintendo Switch, and Wilson, which stars Woody Harrelson. Hope you enjoy our ranting.
YOU TELL US: Do you think Beauty and the Beast and Iron Fist deserve their mixed reviews? And what did you think of either of them?

There’s no major, heavy-handed flaw that brings down Beauty and the Beast, the latest of Disney’s live-action remakes. Rather, this film falls apart from its own weight of bad decisions, made very carefully to not to mess with one of Disney’s most beloved classics too much for fear of losing the same magic that brought animated films to the prestigious forefront of Hollywood.
This week on Cinemaholics, Will and I review Logan, the latest “X-Man” movie starring Hugh Jackman. Don’t worry, no spoilers here. We also reviewed The Great Wall and Fist Fight, along with some new TV shows like Crashing on HBO and The Good Fight on CBS. Finally, we covered some of the latest movie news this week, and this episode features special guest Matt Donato.
