2018 Movie Reviews

Cool-Text-157045102097838

Welcome to the 6th section of my Movie list: 2015-2019! We have previously covered films from 1987-2014 in parts I , II, III, IV, and V!

2018 will be the year of MOVIEPASS as I sprang for the $89.99 12 month subscription to the movie service. I fully expect this to be the highest volume 12 months of my movie viewing life.

Look for the (Review) links to see my original reviews. As always, I will provide “skinnys” of all the films I saw in cinemas in each individual year. My best film of 2018 will be unveiled on December 31st.

483: The Death of Stalin – Armando Iannucci delivers a rip-roaring comedy about the instability, paranoia, fear, torture, rape, and murder following the death of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. Trust me, it is an excellent film, Oscar worthy. (Review)


READY PLAYER ONE482: Ready Player One – Steven Spielberg brings Ernest Cline’s pop culture classic to life in an exciting film that made me feel like a kid again. (Review)


Jaegers_(Pacific_Rim_Uprising)-14

481: Pacific Rim: Uprising – A beautiful, but ultimately empty sequel to a great film. Some of the actors make this better than it should be. (Review)

480: Gringo – David Oyelowo leads an excellent cast through this messy Mexican crime/comedy. (Review)


Annihilation-showcase-poster

479: Annihilation – A smart, well acted, sci-fi film that is more than worth the price of admission. Natalie Portman is awesome here. (Review)

478: Game Night – Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams lead the cast of this dark comedy that starts off with a great premise but falls apart at the end, never realizing it’s full potential. (Review)


The-Shape-of-Water-Poster-Cropped

477: The Shape of Water – Guillermo Del Toro gives us a love story of a mute woman and a fish-man in 1960’s Baltimore. Deserving of Best Picture. (Review)
