My 10 Favorite Movies of 2018

I wanted to include a my list of *favorite* movies from the past year just because there are certain movies that aren’t really tailored for awards season but are worthy of appreciation in retrospect regardless. Popcorn movies can be just as enjoyable as prestige movies, and my list of favorites (as opposed to “best”) generally mostly takes into account the joy of the viewing experience and the rewatchability moving forward.

1. Paddington 2

2. Mission Impossible: Fallout

3. The Favourite

4. Into The Spider-Verse

5. Blindspotting

6. Game Night

7. Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!

8. Can You Ever Forgive Me?

9. The Old Man & The Gun

10. Mandy

Honorary mentions: Mid 90s, Infinity War, A Quiet Place, Black Panther,
