Jay’s Hits and Misses from the Summer of 2017

Here are ten Hits and misses from the summer of 2017. Some of the hits are possible award winners, some weren’t even on the radar and others are just entertaining. The misses range from films that never expected to be award winners and others may be somewhat entertaining but nothing else going for them.

Five films that are Jay’s hits for the summer

Wonder Woman

Starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine

This is everything any top-notch film should have, an outstanding script, great character development, and a cohesive story. It has a nice amount of action and A perfect template for any super hero movie.


Starring Tom Hardy and Mark Rylance

This film reflects the personal experiences of the men at Dunkerk, not necessarily the battle itself. It has an all-star cast and a suspenseful soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.

Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2

Starring Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, and Kurt Russell

This has more of the same that made the first film a hit, plenty of action, funny one-liners and the perfect classic soundtrack.

Spider-man Homecoming

Starring Tom Holland and Michael Keaton

This film has a lot of action and funny-liners but it’s secondary to the fantastic story. It’s fresh and unique and maybe the best Spider-man.

Baby Driver

Starring Ansel Elgort and Kevin Spacey

This is a unique heist movie that is not only fast paced but it has funny-liners and a classic sound track that covers many years.

Five films that are Jay’s misses for the summer

Rough Night

Starring Scarlet Johansson, Jillian Bell, and Kate McKinnon

This film has some funny lines but it quickly runs out of steam and becomes sappy and sentimental

King Arthur, Legend of the Sword

Starring Charlie Hunnam

This film is very confusing, it has flat and boring character’s, choppy editing and just a lousy script.


Starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron

This may be the worst film of the summer; the story is unimaginative with raunchy Jokes about body parts every few minutes. It’s so sophomoric it’s worse than the television show of the same name.


Starring Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer

The chemistry between the two leading actresses is good but there are two many serious unfunny parts in this movie. The script is lousy and there is nothing but sex jokes for humor

Transformers, The Last Knight

Starring Mark Wahlberg and Anthony Hopkins

This film is overblown and over stuffed with action and even though This is shorter than the last Transformers movie it’s still too long. The characters are just to thinly written with no cohesive story.
