TOP FILMS to see in 2017 (Readers' Piks)

I want to thank everyone who voted in my Readers' Choice for TOP FILMS to see in 2017 surveys.  If I am to be completely honest, the line-up, while filled with major blockbusters, isn't as exciting to me as 2016's film releases were. Either way, by now you may have read my list and my son's list of 2017 must-see films. If not, check them out!! Between these three lists, your movie ticket budget for the year should be completely allocated. 

After tallying the votes, here is the list of TOP FILMS to see in 2017 as picked by my readers
