Even though it feels like I dealt with more issues at the theater this year than any time before (people talking, using their phones), 2018 was another great year at the movies. 2018 brought us many great movies. We experienced movies that brought current social issues from around the world to the big screen. We experienced movies that made us remember those beautiful days in the neighborhood with Mister Rogers and relive some of history’s most iconic moments, whether they took place on the moon or on stage for the whole world to see. We experienced streaming giants who made movies that are starting to get their feet wet and compete with the big studios that have been around much longer than them. We experienced movies that made us laugh, cry, connect, gasp, and, most importantly escape from reality. These experiences are a part of why we love movies so much, and that is why we should always talk about the best of the best every year. Talk about the ones that deserve the attention. Ones that you may have not heard about that absolutely deserve your time (and money). Are there movies left off this list that deserve to be seen as well? Of course! It happens every year. Making this year’s list was more difficult for me than in years past. But anywho, follow me for what I think were the best movies of 2018.
Movies reigned supreme in 2018 with some of the most groundbreaking and original films that I’ve not only seen this year, but EVER. From the Nicolas Cage headlined and bloodsoaked acid trip Mandy, to the social media black comedy Assassination Nation – we had it made as cinema nuts.

On this week’s recap show, I break down why Fear The Walking Dead doesn’t need the flagship series to help it out, that latest Solo Trailer, A Quiet Place & more! Read more
I love a premise so simple and robust that you can capture it in a trailer and the movie can be Exactly As Advertised. A Quiet Place is that movie. If you’ve seen the trailer then you know what the entire movie is about. It’s not a question of what happens, really, it’s a question of how it happens. Though to be honest, I still had some problems with the premise. If even the slightest sound can bring these beasties to you, then how do protect yourself when you sleep? People fart in their sleep, it’s fact. So… special underwear? Oh, and people can snore. Not sure why I went to butt stuff first, but you get my point. You can’t be guarded all the time. Turns out with A Quiet Place this idea is not a bug, it’s a feature. Read more
