The Grand '07, '12 and '17 in Film Project

Here we are reviewing movies from 2007, 2012, and 2017 to give a little context. This is to see if the movies of not so long ago stand up to what they seemed to be at the time. This is to see how their popularity has lasted beyond the year that they came out, if they made an impact on movies to come and if that impact makes them better or worse. Here is a collection of the posts and nominations we would give to these movies should they get an award for five or ten year hindsight, as well as the movies of 2017.
