"I long for it to end."-Arkaan

"I really hope that this is when Marvel actually experiments with the form or takes more artistic risks.I doubt that they will because more likely than not,they will stick to tried and true with untested characters,but it's still nice to hope."-Starlit

64 movies were honored over our 40 regular categories for the 2017 film year.Lady BirdandGet Outled this past year's crop with 13 nominations each and 10 and 9 medal wins respectively.Other top ten entries that scored multiple medals wereCall Me By Your Name,Baby Driver,andAtomic Blonde.The films that made the strongest showing without scoring in headline categories or the top ten list were:Phantom Thread,The Greatest Showman,andBlade Runner 2049.

Some curiousities:The Florida Projectwon only gold medals,never a silver or bronze.Oscar's best picture winnerThe Shape of Waterwas nominated in six categories but only took home one medal (gold for Production Design).And the film that Oscar completely ignored that performed strongest here was --  no surprise I suppose -- France's Oscar submissionBPMwith 8 nominations,1 gold,1 silver,and 4 bronze medals.

Nathaniel's Top Ten of 2017

by Nathaniel R

Better late than never.If you've been wondering why your TFE host has been so in and out of the proceedings this season,let's just say life has proved significantly challenging offline: the end of a decade-plus relationship,homelessness (not the dramatic kind but the sleeping on friend's couches kind),a long bout with the flu,a new side gig,etcetera).So this list carries a bit of melancholy with it as 2017 was one of the hardest years of my life.(If you also had a rough year: I feel you.Hugs in solidarity).Due to all of this I didn't see as many films as is my preference and couldn't rewatch the key films I usually would have before "voting".

But in the end you have to move forward.  Time changes everything...and time changes all top ten lists also!Some of these placements thatyouscratch your head about now,you'll either understand in ten years time OR I'll join you in scratching my head about them with a "what was I thinking?"blush.Top ten lists are but time capsules.

People change for better and worse.Circumstances shift dramatically or perception does.The movies of 2017 helped me understand all this,many of them zeroed in on definitive months in someone's life,others hopping around in time,and still more juxtaposing the past with the present...

The Playlistworst movies of the year.I was furious with them for putting the excellentAtomic Blondeon the list but this bit onEmoji Moviemade me lol

Is it shooting fish in a barrel to put "The Emoji Movie,"a film for children that had no aspirations at any point in its creation other than to milk money out of those children's parents,so high on this list?Perhaps.But in this case,the fish in the barrel are savage fucking piranhas that would devour everything you loved if they remain un-shot.

Soundtracking: "Atomic Blonde"

Chrislooks back at one of the best soundtracks of the year,Atomic Blonde...

There's no other film I wanted to musically take up residence inside this year more thanAtomic Blonde.The film is loaded with techno pseudo-political new age and best played at full volume,featuring the likes of The Clash to A Flock of Seagulls.It's a film that gifts us with the glory of Til Tuesday's glorious "Voices Carry"not once,but twice!

While some might reduce its endless stream of songs to added set dressing (cue Daniel Walber'sAtomic Blondeinstallment of The Funiturehere) or just another fabulous costume,it actually does some heavy lifting to both immerse us into a specific world of its the Cold War setting and distinguish the era apart from the cinematic cliches of the subgenre.The electric glamor and brutality has been some of the film's major discussion points for how the film looks unlike your average Cold War film,but it's equally crucial that it doesn't sound like one either...
