IMDB has released its annual list of the top 10 movies of 2017.
The popular film website breaks down the top 10 based on how many people visit the individual site pages for the films. The exclusive data is derived from IMDbPro’s definitive MOVIEmeter rankings, which are updated weekly throughout the year.
The top ten looks like this:
2. Wonder Woman
3. Beauty and the Beast
5. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
6. Justice League
8. Alien: Covenant
9. Thor: Ragnarok
10. Blade Runner 2049
Not bad for Alien Covenant, isn't it?

LMAO! AC hardly deserves to be at a top ten list over the best movies of the year, it was a disappointment. I accept that people enjoy different kinds (action, comedy, for example) but it is far from a top ten because if it is then it more like indicates what a shitty year it has been for movies and no I have not watched a lot of them this year.
I really could’nt care less about who wants to be vocal in expressing a like or dislike about AC.
@joylitt, thanks for sharing the list.
I would like to share with you all one of my more recent movie viewing niggles. This also has a lot to do with marketing and I think relates to where we see AC in the list provided.
A couple of months ago I was viewing some trailers on YouTube, and to my surprise I came across a trailer for John Wick 2. I really enjoyed the first movie, and was a bit pissed that I had not been aware that a second movie had been released. If I had known this I would have loved to have seen it on a big screen. In my search to find out more I went on IMDb’s site, thus adding my latent query to their data analytics.
My latent query was ultimately brought about through bad marketing of John Wick2 imo. You might be of the opinion that the John Wick ongoing saga with another movie on the horizon, is subject to something developing a cult status through latent viewing interest.
Now I am going to turn to AC, which I think suffered from poor marketing, and like myself looking for John Wick 2 and going on IMDb to find out more, how many others missed the boat when AC was released and have taken exactly the same route as myself to find out more about AC. I think it is fair to say that AC fell short in a variety of expectations for many who have seen it, but I will point the finger at marketing being at the root of poor turn out at movie houses.
