Okay, ready for it? Here’s my end of the year wrap-up for 2017 film ( words and travel coming next).
I’ve watched a lot of movies and binged a lot of shows in 2017, and I wanted to share them with you. Who knows maybe YOU will find yourself bundled up by a fire, in the middle of a snowstorm, or recovering with chicken noodle soup getting over a cold, and you need something good to watch. Whatever reason you need to justify an escape for a few hours, take it, life’s too short. And, if you haven’t watched any of the 17 shows below, you might just want to give them a chance and get ready to binge watch.
Godless- Series: not your father’s western but I loved this series. From the beginning to the end. And… it does end--making me satisfied. Great series.
13 reasons Why – Series: Haunting but worth binging.
Mind Hunter – Series: I love this series set in the 1970’s. Solid, creepy and excellent acting.
Baby Driver – Film: This car chasing clever film was one of my favorite big screen movie outings in 2017.
Logan Lucky – Film: Who knew Tatum Channing could be so Oklahoma…a heist movie that ranks up there.
A Dogs Purpose – Film: Yes, I have a dog, and yes I liked the movie.
The Big Sick – Film: Witty, current and enjoyable.
Big Little Lies – mini-series: California dreaming not. I didn’t want to watch this, but I did, and I liked every dark part of it.
Wonder Women – Film: If you haven’t seen this 2017 action film starring the beautiful Gal Gadot, watch it.
The Zookeepers Wife – Film: World War Two story worth watching, sad but true.
Wind River – Film: Prepared to be chilled, and it’s based on a true story.
Wonder – Film: Great acting, a feel-good film that might teach a lesson, family friendly.
Stranger Things – Series: Catch up on the first series then watch series two. Retro in the 80’s where I know strange things happened.

Anne with an E – Series: the darker side of one of my favorite childhood books, Anne of Green Gables.
