Top Films of 2017

2017 was the year the ladies took center stage. Even though the wrong candidate was sworn in, America voted overwhelmingly for its first female president. The Women’s Revolution continues in the WWE and other sports. This year we saw a number of films which featured quite a number of  female protagonists. Whether Amazons, Vixens, villainesses, young superheroines, Valkyries, or God herself, 2017 reminded us all that it’s a woman’s world and I am here for all of it.

As is the tradition from January to December I compile a list of the best films released throughout the year. One of the main purposes is to promote diverse and progressive works for those searching for quality artistry.

In order for a film to make the list, it must pass my Media Litmus Test. Two animated films were so impressive they were included on the primary list and tied for a slot.

So without further adieu….
