2017 featured plenty of superhero movies, and big budget movies in general. With any movie that carries a large fan base, lots of potential discussion and disagreements will come forward, which lately, can be pretty annoying. If someone doesn’t like a movie, that’s not enough for some folks who like to bash people for simply having an opinion on a movie.
Rotten Tomatoes is a website that takes every critics review and puts it together to form a percentage. Some people seem to think that Rotten Tomatoes writes reviews, but that isn’t the case. Still, however, that hasn’t stopped fans from starting petitions to shut down the website for negative reviews of movies they like. Just this week, a group of fans started a petition to shut down Rotten Tomatoes for giving Star Wars: The Last Jedi positive reviews. The Rotten Tomatoes debate could go on forever.
At any rate, we thought it’d make for an interesting article to put together the superhero movies of 2017 ranked according to Rotten Tomatoes:
8. Justice League
Critics Consensus: Justice League leaps over a number of DC movies, but its single bound isn’t enough to shed the murky aesthetic, thin characters, and chaotic action that continue to dog the franchise.
7. Power Rangers
Critics Consensus: Power Rangers has neither the campy fun of its TV predecessor nor the blockbuster action of its cinematic superhero competitors, and sadly never quite manages to shift into turbo for some good old-fashioned morphin time.
6. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Critics Consensus: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2‘s action-packed plot, dazzling visuals, and irreverent humor add up to a sequel that’s almost as fun — if not quite as thrillingly fresh — as its predecessor.
5. The Lego Batman Movie
4. Spider-Man: Homecoming
Critics Consensus: Spider-Man: Homecoming does whatever a second reboot can, delivering a colorful, fun adventure that fits snugly in the sprawling MCU without getting bogged down in franchise-building.
3. Thor: Ragnarok
2. Wonder Woman
Critics Consensus: Hugh Jackman makes the most of his final outing as Wolverine with a gritty, nuanced performance in a violent but surprisingly thoughtful superhero action film that defies genre conventions.
So there you have it. 2017 was a great year all around for superhero movies, and here’s hoping 2018 will be the same, with a ton of big movies scheduled for release.
