Top 5 Most-Read Posts of 2017

So long 2017! This is Eclectic Pop’s last end-of-the-year wrap-up post, so hold on and enjoy. In a highly competitive Top 5, posts about a pop music queen, an actual queen, and an empress, ruled reader interest. In true Eclectic Pop form, the Top 5 is comprised of eclectic selections. There are two (2) movie reviews, one (1) music feature, one (1) TV review, and one TV/movie hybrid feature.

It will be fun to see what 2018 holds for Eclectic Pop. With the second season of “Victoria” currently airing on PBS and Season 2 of “Ekaterina” hopefully arriving on Amazon Prime, sometime soon, a lot of popular topics in 2017 should also be relevant in 2018. Here’s to finding out together!

Top 5 Most-Read Movie Reviews Of 2017

Action, adventure, romance, and mayhem dominated the themes of Eclectic Pop’s Most-Read Movie Reviews in 2017. What do they share in common? Every review in the Top 5 is positive, some glowingly so. In a compelling suggestion of just how prevalent Netflix has become, it is worth noting that each and every film in the Top 5 was available to stream on Netflix Instant in 2017.

There is no other obvious connection between the Top 5. The popularity of specific themes seems to vary. Indie drama “Berlin Syndrome” and Antonio Banderas starrer “Security” are both thrillers. The former a psychological take on the genre and the latter a louder action-oriented thriller.

Best Movies Of 2017: 'Carrie Pilby', 'The Duelist', 'Sword Master' & More

2017 was a complicated year for movies, many were good, and some were great. Listed below are 13 films that rose above the rest, earning their spot among 2017’s best. What does it take for a movie to be considered one of the year's “best?” It should never fade from one's memory and fondly cross your mind on a regular basis, after seeing it.

All of these movies achieved that in one way or another. While not all of them were fun to watch, great films do not have to be.

A great movie should challenge and impress with an inventive premise or outstanding performance(s), either behind or in front of the camera, preferably both. When it came to 2017, Eclectic Pop believes no other films did that better than these.

Best TV Of 2017: 'Bates Motel,' 'GoT,' 'Alias Grace,' 'Reign' & More

Another year of quality television has come and gone, and thankfully, there was no shortage of top-notch programming. There were costume dramas that thrilled with edge-of-your-seat danger and beautiful costuming. Action dramas that provided riveting intrigue. While long-running series bid television a fond and “bittersweet” farewell.
