The "worst of 2017" list, no. The "biggest disappointment of 2017" list, yeah it would have ranked pretty high on that list.

Re: The Worst Films of 2017.

My vote go to Blade Runner 2049. Boring, way too long and pretty much put me to sleep.

Did not like the first one, but the scenes with Willem Dafoe, Ian McShane and Michael Nyqvist made it a bit more palatable. With Dafoe and Nyqvist gone, I can't say the same about part 2.

I agree, not sure what I would vote as the worst film of 2017, but BR 2049 was the biggest disappointment.

Re: The Worst Films of 2017.

I might catch some heat for this list.
I also try to avoid watching bad flicks.

Worst

All About the Money (2017)
Killing Gunther (2017)
American Assassin (2017)
It Comes at Night (2017)
Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Power Rangers (2017)
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)
The Fate of the Furious (2017)
Ghost in the Shell (2017)
The Great Wall(2017 USA)
Underworld: Blood Wars (2017 USA)

Disappointing

Coco (2017)
The Big Sick (2017)
Wonder Woman (2017)I might give this another viewing.I think I'm just sick of Super hero movies.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Some parts I really liked,but over all the film was disappointing for me.
War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)

I'm pretty good at avoiding bad movies, I only hated Baywatch and Star Wars The Last Jedi in 2017.

Re: The Worst Films of 2017.

The Mummy and Power Rangers were both tough watches.

I'd consider Alien: Covenant my pick for the most disappointing movie of 2017.

Colossal, however, is great.

I have not watched most of these movies.
Agree with you about Spider-man and Power Rangers.
Still might watch Downsizing from your list.

Liked Colossal.Just something different that kept me entertained.

I kind of liked Alien Covenant and John Wick 2.
Might watch Alien Covenant again but not John Wick 2 again,just wait for the next chapter.

Have not watched the The Shape of Water yet.
Kind of agree about Lady Bird.I would not say disappointing,but very overrated.

We might get some disagreement from other members about Lady Bird

For Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri made my top 3.You are on your own for this one.

I thought it was okay.But I did not read the book,and from reading reviews most that like the book hate the movie.

I also liked Colossal.Kind of started off slow for me,and almost turned it off.

Re: The Worst Films of 2017.

Colossal was painfully bad to me.

Florida Project got on my nerves. Brats running around repeating douchey comments the director told them to say three minutes before the scene.

Three Billboard and Shape of Water aren't "bad" movies but both disappointed me. I think if you tweaked those movies they would've been much, much stronger.

Similarly, very obvious tweaks to Last Jedi would've greatly helped that film.

Yeah, tastes are very subjective. From your worst list, It Comes at Night made my top 10 of 2017.

Re: The Worst Films of 2017.

A Bad Mom's Christmas, The Layover and The Shack are my picks.

My biggest disappointment is probably Get Out (which I still enjoyed a bit but man was that hyped up) or Wonder Woman.

Anyway, just to have it here. These are the "Critics" worst of 2017 per Metacritic:

#1. The Emoji Movie (12)
#2. The Layover (15)
#3. The Last Face (16)
#4. Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween
#5. Just Getting Started (21)
#6. Geostorm (21)
#7. A Family Man (21)
#8. Father Figures (23)
#9. The Snowman (23)
#10. Underworld: Blood Wars (23)
#11. Rings (25)
#12. Arsenal (25)
#13. The Ottoman Lieutenant (26)
#14. Flatliners (27)
#15. Once Upon a Time in Venice (28)

The Florida Project was by far the worst film I saw all year.

There aren't many movies I hate, or really even actively dislike. I thought I had set my expectations appropriately for Baywatch, but apparently not. I hated that movie, didn't finish it, and have zero desire to ever try again.
