My Top Ten of 2018

Posted on December 27, 2018 at 12:14 pm

My top ten films of 2018 (as usual, I have a #1 and then everything else is tied for #2), has been published on rogerebert.com. At the top of my list is “If Beale Street Could Talk,” and the rest of the list includes “Black Panther,” “Eighth Grade,” “Sorry to Bother You,” and “Support the Girls.”

  1. My own picks, of the 22 I’ve seen:
    Incredibles 2
    Avengers: Infinity War
    Searching
    First Man

    Black Panther
    A Quiet Place
    Ant-Man and the Wasp
    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
    Love, Simon
    Christopher Robin

    Honourable mentions to Solo, Mission Impossible: Fallout, Boy Erased and Pokémon: The Power of Us.

  2. It was fun to go back, count, and remember the ones I have seen. It’s only 16 so I have best/worst list overlap.

    1. Eighth Grade – I’m just a sucker for the Father/Daughter relationships. Wish he would have read a book on parenting.
    2. Game Night – It’s hard to believe these are adults, but it was really fun.
    3. Tully – Really well done, no one talks about this movie.
    4. Ready Player One – Tiresome special effects, but still has the Spielberg magic that I’ve missed.
    5. A Quiet Place – Works okay, like everyone else I love the actors.
    6. Chappaquiddick
    7. Adrift
    8. A Simple Favor – We really need to see more Blake Lively
    9. The Book Club – The women got the top billing, but I always like seeing Andy Garcia and Craig T Nelson
    10. Super Troopers 2

  3. Tough year for me to pick just 10. Bottom nine in no particular order:

    First Man
    Free Solo
    The Favorite
    BlackKKlansman
    Three Identical Strangers
    Tag (that one just hit the right spot at the right time)
    Annihilation
    Black Panther
    A Star is Born

    1. Leave No Trace

    Ben Foster is criminally underappreciated by the general moviegoing populace.
