You want to be able to contribute to stories when your friends are discussing the movies they enjoyed watching without looking like an old person. It is, therefore, important for you to know which movies are top rated in 2017 and what their storyline is in order to figure out whether you will enjoy watching them or not.

With that in mind, here are our top three movies of early 2017:

The LEGO Batman Movie

The LEGO Batman Movie has become a worldwide phenomenon thanks to its irreverent spirit of fun. The main character, LEGO Batman, stars in his own adventure and has to fight to save the city. In an era where there is a low number of family friendly movies to watch, this one came as a huge relief. If you are a Batman geek, you’re guaranteed to love this new animation. It portrays a lot of fun and adventure in the LEGO world. Critics have even named it the best animated offering of the year. All Batman has to do is drop the lone vigilante thing, learn to lighten up and try to work with the rest.

Hidden Figures

If you are more of a reality drama person, this movie is for you. It depicts the story of the women who worked for NASA during the early years of USA’s independence. They show the critical steps they made in helping the US win the space race. The actresses do a great job in helping you imagine what this era was like and how hard it must have been to be a woman and have such a significant role in society at the time. They also show the emotional hefts of their triumphs. It is a real-life story brought out so well you get a little bit of humor, romance, drama and uplifting encouragement.

Get Out

With all the many movies being released, horror/comedy hybrid fans may feel a little left out. However, Get Out is a great movie that is bound to entertain. It is difficult to find a great horror movie these days. This one follows the increasingly horrifying misadventures of one young man that wants to meet his girlfriend’s parents who live in the suburbs. The parents have no idea that their baby’s boyfriend is black. This adds to the awkward tension in the movie. Get Out is one movie you will not want to miss out on.


A great movie has a way of imprinting itself into your brain and heart. With Showbox, you can keep up with all the great movies being released this year. You will even know when the all-time great series Prison Break is released and be amongst the first to watch it. The freedom to choose what to watch and when to watch it is the joy brought by the internet to the entertainment industry.
