Below, please find the most popular movie reviews of 2017, listed in descending order. It should go without saying that “popular” does not necessarily have any connection with “positive.” That goes double for the comments, my favorites of which are reproduced here.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Get Out: “Sounds like you’re the racist here.”
Star Wars: The Last Jedi: “Matthew, you are just a bitter, pompous a--. What a Debbie Downer!” (That one showed up on the review roundup, but I think its true subject was clear.)
Justice League: “You’re a dumbass.”
Passengers: “You’re a moron.”
Moana: “What drug are you on?”
Spider Man: Homecoming: “Liberals finally have their watered-downed web-slinging hero.”
The Fate of the Furious: No negative comments! Weird.
Beauty and the Beast: The Internet ate the comments on this one, but if memory serves, there were some gems.
Moonlight: “Scott Marks: Dude, you’re just a weakass hater.” (It was so nice to see Scott get some of the hate here!)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: “This ‘review’ feels more like something a drunk soccer mom would write on a Facebook post.”
Kong: Skull Island: “Complete joke of a review.”
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets: “Do you really know what Science fiction story is?”
Life: “Matthew, your capsule review nailed the director’s intent: triumphant nihilism.” Hey, I got one right!
It: No comment.
And yes, we saved the best for last. Scott Marks’ review of Interstellar is still pulling comments three years after its release. Very impressive. I think this would be his favorite: “My god, I’ve never seen a bigger retard than Scott Marks.”
Happy New Year, everybody! Thanks for reading!
