It's hard to believe it, but we are already counting down the days until we reach the mid-point of the year 2017. And while there are still six months to go before we reach 2018, we've already seen some incredibly impressive movies arrive in theaters. From indie dramas to major blockbusters, the big screen has seen some amazing stories told since January -- and this is the spot where we celebrate the best of the best.

Weighing the opinions of the entire CinemaBlend movie staff, we've put together our list of what we see as the best films of 2017 so far. We'll have to wait and see how similar our end of year rundown winds up being in a few months, but all of the features highlighted below and on the next few pages are most definitely worthy of your attention and time. So without further ado...

The Lost City Of Z Charlie Hunnam

10. The Lost City Of Z

Writer/director James Gray spent many, many years trying to adapt the story of explorer Percy Fawcett for the big screen, and it really would have been tragic had the movie fallen on its face. Fortunately, that most definitely wasn't the case, as The Lost City of Z stands as one of the best films we've seen so far in 2017. Set in the early 20th century, the feature is an epic story of perseverance, drive, and obsession, and it's both impressive and beautiful.

The arguably surprising stand-out is star Charlie Hunnam, who takes the entire film on his back as the aforementioned Percy Fawcett and falls into the role in impressive fashion. While the young actor has a few starring roles in blockbuster movies and television shows on his resume, his turn in The Lost City Of Z is the best we've seen from him yet, and evidence of serious dedication to his craft.
