This year was a fantastic time for movies, as films from every conceivable genre delivered thrills, laughs, chills, and every other emotion on the spectrum. Now, with 2017 drawing to a close, it's time to look at all of the movies that debuted and pull out the favorites.

Those are the movies that we are going to talk about today. I have compiled a list of my top ten favorite films of the year, as well as some rationale for why they resonated with me as deeply as they did. On that note, let's dive into my first movie, and its ability to give us a more comedic look at one of our favorite brooding anti-heroes.

10. The LEGO Batman Movie

Following the success of The LEGO Movie was always going to represent a daunting challenge for the folks at Warner Bros., and despite his popularity, LEGO Batman seemed like an odd choice because of his relatively one-note personality. That said, Chris McKay pulled off something amazing with The LEGO Batman Movie: he delivered a heartwarming and hilarious sequel that honors the source material and maintains an effective emotional core that works for audiences of all ages.

It also doesn't hurt that The LEGO Batman Movie is a feast for anyone with an affinity for DC lore. Chris McKay very clearly understands the mythology of The Caped Crusader, and the film itself is a love letter to any and every adventure that Batman has been on since he first hit the pages of DC Comics back in the 1930s. A discerning comic book fan can tell when a lot of love goes into a movie, and The LEGO Batman Movie is full of love.
