2017 was the year of superheroes. Thor; Ragnarok, Justice League, Logan and Wonder Woman smashed the Box Office to pieces. But there were movies that were not as anticipated but also won the viewers’ heart and soul. They were no hollywood blockbusters but they were still as amazing as the rest.

6. Your Name
Japanese Hand drawn animation at it’s finest, Your Name is not your regular anime movie. It tells the story of Taki and Mitsuha, two teenagers who start exchanging bodies suddenly through the barriers of space and time. Your Name is a beautiful tale of morals and the drive to do what’s right, whatever the cost.
5. Logan Lucky
Adam Driver and Channing Tatum are two hillbillies who aim to make money by robbing the vault at the nearby Charlotte Motor Speedway. The plan, the execution, the players are all hilariously green when it comes to burglary. The fun to watch movie is further bedazzled by Daniel Craig’s phenomenal supporting role.

2. Super Dark Times
