All Films Watched in 2017

I'm changing my main reviewing site to:  http://letterboxd.com/kenru/ where all the reviews are rated on a 5-star basis.


However,
on this site all films still are rated on a scale of 4-stars:
 ****(A+), *** 3/4 (A), *** 1/2 (A-), *** 1/4 (B+), *** (B), ** 3/4 (B-), ** 1/2 (C+), ** 1/4 ( C), ** (C-) , * 3/4 thru * (D),  3/4* thru 0*  (F)


Links are to longer reviews on site or elsewhere on the interwebs. 
A FILM is defined as 70 min.+  visual event.  A non-capitalized film title is a short film worthy of note.

The year included with the film is the year I watched each film.
 (V) =  TV, Video or DVD    ( +) = repeat viewing      (W/O)= walked out
