Well ladies and gents, 2017 is coming to a close, and it's time for reflection! Since I love rankings and lists and the like, I thought this would be a fun exercise: if you are so inclined, list your top 5 favorite films of the year (short films and documentaries are welcome). I will allocate 5 points to your #1 film, 4 points to your #2 film, 3 points to your #3 film, 2 points to your #4 film, and 1 point to your #5 film. Once all of the voting takes place, I'll tally up all of the points, and calculate FML's collective top 10 films of 2017! (as well as some other stats)

I'll leave the voting open until locktime next Friday, so if you've got any movies to catch up on this weekend, go for it! You can even put your top 5 for now, and if something sneaks in between now and next Friday, just edit your original post; I won't start counting anything until then, so just make sure your list is finalized by then.

Also, feel free to discuss anything else about the films of 2017 here. Got any honorable mentions? Missed one that you need to catch up with soon? Biggest disappointment or most pleasant surprise? Let's hear ‘em! Thanks for a memorable year guys, and here's to even better in 2018 ??

    Lady Bird
    The Last Jedi
    Get Out
    The Shape of Water

    (Caveat: I have not seen 3 Billboards, The Darkest Hour, The Post, and a number of other movies I expect are great yet. But of the ones I have seen, that's my top five).

    Have not yet been able to see The Florida Project, Call Me by Your Name, or Phantom Thread, all of which I have a feeling could get into my top five once I do see them. Wish I lived in a bigger city.
