With so many big-ticket movies released in 2017 from superhero fare like Wonder Woman and Spider-Man: Homecoming to Disney box office hits like Beauty and the Beast and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, some films were bound to slip under our radar. Unfortunately, that meant that a lot of movies more than worth our while didn’t get half the love they deserved.
These overlooked movies are by no means bad films. In fact, they’re all highly rated by at least a few critics and sites like Rotten Tomatoes and if their quality was questionable they’d be on a different list entirely.
But unlike films like Wonder Woman and The Last Jedi that got tons of exposure and hype, rave reviews and box office glory these movies didn’t exactly have cinemagoers queuing around the block or set the box office aflame or get recognition on the mainstream awards circuit.
Luckily, some people are still keen to champion the movies that slipped through the cracks – the award-worthy underdogs and must-see quiet successes that may have escaped your attention in 2017. No need for thanks, you’re already welcome.
