RE: The list you need -- worst films of 2017.

Thank you for your post Free Ranger I always enjoy your contributions and viewpoint.

That said - I liked two of the films on that list - Gold and John Wick Two. I'm not saying either was "Gone with the Wind" but they certainly weren't "the worst".

I disagree about trusting LaSalle - He was and is a 2nd rate film critic for a 2nd rate newspaper (SF Chronicle for years, not sure what he's doing now). He's no Pauline Kael. With all the trash Hollywood releases- LaSalle can even bungle a "Worst Films of 2017" list. That's like bungling a "Least Likable Nazi's" list.

Gold and John Wick Two had some merit in my humble opinion.

Matthew McConaughey's performance in Gold was stand out. Maybe not on par with his performance in Dallas Buyers Club, but still an outstanding performance.

John Wick Two had beautifully choreographed fight scenes, incredible sets and was like jumping into a video game. Sure, not quite as great as John Wick One - but it was a respectable sequel.

Have a great day!
