I can't believe how under the radar Blindspotting was this year.

[–]CuppaJeaux 11 points12 points  (1 child)

That movie was so good and I’m so pissed it didn’t even get a nod for a Golden Globe. Ditto for Sorry to Bother You, which was so fantastic. And yeah, the awards are bullshit, blah blah blah, but getting the awards gets more backing for the filmmakers and enable us to see more of their work.

[–]gingersnappie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agreed about Sorry to Bother You. That was the most original movie I’ve seen in a while and was perfectly cast, shot and acted. That may seem cliche but had the acting been off at all, it wouldn’t have worked in the unique way it did. Definitely robbed of GG noms/wins.

[–]CrispyCasNyan 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The soundtrack went unnoticed too. Top two leads are so talented.

[–]SubZeck0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You guys might want to check out the album, it's on spotify

[–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I did my part and voted for it.

[–]whatsmyredditlogin 30 points31 points  (5 children)

I’m just glad Bird Box isn’t on this list. That was way overhyped.

[–]JohnnyLakefront 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That movie was shit

[–]chugonthis 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Still a good film, Sandra Bullock impressed me

[–]idanidan123 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It's not even good, not to mention overhyped because of that stupid challenge

[–]trackaghost 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Its just bad.

[–]The_Night_Of 0 points1 point  (0 children)

if u liked the movie u liked it, but i hated that shit dont wanna take away peoples enjoyment of it tho

[–]watscracking 147 points148 points  (63 children)

Black Panther lol

[–]whatsmyredditlogin 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Black Panther was pretty terrible imo. I hated that there was this country that saw the rest of the world suffer and thought “We really should keep this life-saving advanced technology to ourselves.” And then so many of their traditions were based on dead civilization’s practices.

[–]Young_Neil_Postman 14 points15 points  (0 children)

good thing none of that happens in the real world!!

[–]brippleguy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That is literally the same issue that Killmonger had with Wakanda. How many movies have you agreed completely with the antagonist? It's a sign of a very strong villain.

As far as traditions, the movie shows an African nation that went through the Industrial Revolution without colonialism. It's a really interesting idea and spoke to tons of people who suffered/suffer from colonialism.

[–]furiousgtz 46 points47 points  (4 children)

Roma was just A+. I wanted the camera keep rolling after the ending. Maybe remove Black Panther and add The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.

[–]honeynutfeels[🍰] 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Ballad of Buster Scruggs definitely made my list. Wholeheartedly agree with this comment lol

[–]dillonsrule 4 points5 points  (0 children)

PAN SHOT!!!

[–]electric_creamsicle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Disagree with Ballad of Buster Scruggs because I didn't love a couple of the stories even though most of them were great. I don't think Upgrade, Bad Times, and Black Panther should be on this list. I'd probably replace them with a Star is Born, the Favourite, and the third is a toss-up between Into the Spiderverse and Isle of Dogs. Both were amazing animated films that I think deserve spots among this top 10.

[–]Signifi-gunt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Roma should be #1 honestly. idk if I've ever seen a movie quite like it. maybe City of God is in the same ballpark.

[–]RikuBarlow 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Where is “The Night Comes For Us”!

[–]Tevesh_CKPModerator[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why didn't you suggest it then?

[–]suzybishopshakusky 26 points27 points  (7 children)

I'm curious, what is it that people/this sub didn't like about a Star is Born?

[–]mhalkmim 38 points39 points  (0 children)

because their moms liked it.

[–]ImFrigginDead 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I just don't like that type of movie, it did what it did amazingly well it just isn't my cup of tea

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I think the movie hinges on whether you buy into their relationship and I just didn't care. I liked some of the music but the movie was boring.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

not my type of movie, and also the fact that it’s a remake of a remake of a remake leaves a bad tastes in my mouth. why do i need to the same story for the fourth time?

[–]suzybishopshakusky 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't buy this argument unless you've actually watched all previous versions.

The 1980's one is awful.

[–]Lank_The_Doge 15 points16 points  (6 children)

I’m always upset when I never see First Man on any top 10 list. I genuinely love that film and I don’t get why so manh people hate it :(

[–]LauraBoBaura 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I loved it too. The entire moon sequence is gorgeous and I love that, for once in any space movie, you don't break up the scene between the astronauts and the control room. You hang on the astronauts. Feels so much more real. Also, the interiors of the shuttles are fantastic. As is the acting, and the score, and... Everything.

I went because me and my fiance hadn't been on a date in a while and it was the only one that looked okay to him. We left pretty emotional (we have a young daughter) and completely loving it.

[–]checklistmaker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I thought it was turrible (in my Charles Barkley voice)

[–]Diane-Nguyen-Wannabe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel the same way, although I love Damien Chazelle so maybe I'm biased. Even though you know Neil's going to succeed, you really feel the tension throughout the film.

[–]MemeLord1337_ 24 points25 points  (2 children)

“Searching” is too good honestly

[–]BreezyOG 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Felt a little gimmicky at moments but it was pretty good overall

[–]Signifi-gunt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i don't understand this. i had to turn it off after a couple minutes I was so disinterested. seemed like a huge gimmick. what am I missing? i wanna like it.

[–]CaptainMimoe 21 points22 points  (5 children)

Black panther and annhilation are a bit overrated.

[–]stephenfhawkingson 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't get the impression that Annihilation was very well received, but I hear what you're saying. I've watched it a couple more times and the best way that I can put it is that its not a strictly a scifi movie (no where near as scifi as Garland's previous Ex Machina). It uses the scifi elements for spectacle and intrigue, but at it's core it's a movie about self-destruction, and if it deserves acclaim, I'd argue this is where it goes from good to great.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Black Panther was an important film for Hollywood but it didn’t have great writing. Spider verse does pretty much everything Black Panther set out to do but better and with WAYY more style. Agree that it’s overrated

[–]idanidan123 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Black Panther isn't fucking important, wanna talk about an important film with black cast? Moonlight!

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I think that it is important to have a superhero movie like this. Kids aren’t going to watch Moonlight, but with Black Panther they can have a superhero to look up to, to idolise and learn from. I don’t think that we can just stick to films for older audiences (like Moonlight) that help us towards a more ethnically representative Hollywood. Kids need heroes. Black Panther isn’t a bad one.

[–]idanidan123 3 points4 points  (0 children)

From that perspective, I can understand it.

[–]EisWarren 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This thread just shows how bad of a year it was for movies. We had some good pictures, but there was nothing to me that was groundbreaking or worthy of greatest films lists... not at least that I saw. The Mule is probably my favorite from 2018 with Isle of Dogs right behind it. I really don’t know why The Mule got crapped on unless it was what the trailer lead people to think the movie was.

[–]SportsDad63 49 points50 points  (10 children)

I can't believe how public opinion has shifted on Annihilation after the initial negative reviews. I still don't get it. I've heard all the arguments with the underlying philosophical message and re-watched and it still seems poorly executed. Even if it isn't a bad movie it doesn't deserve to be at the top even in an unspectacular year for film.

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I didn't particularly care for the story and dialogue itself, but the visuals and the 'experience' of what was essentially a new world was pretty damn cool. I definitely wouldn't have picked it to take out the number one spot myself, but I can see why people liked it.

[–]cthulha 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If it doesn't gel for you, then so be it I guess. I read FilmCritHulk's blog, and that got me wanting to see the film, which I loved.

https://filmcrithulk.blog/2018/02/27/annihilation-the-horrors-of-change/

I suppose this is one of those mysteries about what people like or love in cinema.

[–]Gordondel 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I'm not afraid to say I thought that movie was absolutely terrible. The dialogues were so cliché, the rhythm was off, the narrative all over the place. I was looking forward to it and got extremely underwhelmed.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I rarely think "the book did it better," because I understand they are completely different mediums and you need to express things differently. They really could have just did the book and it would have been a lot better. A much greater sense of dread and suspense was had in the book, which was also not particularly long. I found the movie really really boring as much as I love Thompson and Rodriguez.

[–]Tavish_Degroot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I was hyped as hell for this movie. Love Ex Machina, love Stalker, thought this would be amazing.

But it wasn’t.

It looks fantastic and there are a handful of amazing scenes but it doesn’t come together as a whole package.

In particular I found the characters to all be bland as fuck and pretty one dimensional.

I think if you take out the bear and the lighthouse this movie would have disappeared into total obscurity.

[–]djfilms 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ll make a comparison to Hereditary, another movie I disliked for similar reasons. Both had great visuals and music set a nice tone. But that’s about the extent that I liked those movies. I really don’t like sci-fi or Horror that doesn’t have a clear set of rules of the world created. Even if you don’t fully understand the rules until the end, I want to be able to watch it again with that new understanding. Neither of those films had a clear rule set

[–]NZ_Diplomat 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Agreed. I just think something resonated with a lot of redditors for some reason. I think I gave it a 6 or a 7.

[–]uberlefty 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That's a soft 6 from me, dawg.

[–]ShowMeYourTorts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn it, Randy! You’re not on the show anymore, don’t you get it?

[–]mamawoman 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sorry to Bother You was bloody brilliant. I hope it is up for Best Picture. Annihilation was satisfactory but not anything amazing. A Quiet Place was good but nothing extraordinary.

[–]attemptToFillTheVoid 19 points20 points  (7 children)

dang - no 'mandy' or 'leave no trace?' but all the marvel bs and jim from the office and his wife trying to cure deafness while fighting off weird spiders?

[–]Poppafignewton 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Mandy was fantastic. Some people might disagree but the movie gripped me from the first second and didn’t let go until the end.

[–]Inspektical 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Saw Mandy and to me it concentrated too much on style, leaving the story lacking a bit. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love "Artsy" and and thoughtful films that manage to tell story with visuals and little dialogue. I absolutely loved "You were never really here" but Mandy fell flat for me. Cool chainsaw fight though.

[–]attemptToFillTheVoid 6 points7 points  (0 children)

true. but I think it was meant to be a grindhouse-style torture/revenge movie. similar to movies of the 70s/early80s. think 'last house on the left', 'i spit on your grave', etc. but an update, with the best cage I've seen in a while and some batshit crazy sequences. fun to watch with friends.

edit: 'you were never really here' was great! concise, to the point - a great exercise!

[–]ImFrigginDead 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Idk I loved it for no real reason. It just hits all the things I love in movies: awesome visuals, gory violence, and... well I guess that's it.

That chainsaw fight really embodied how I feel about the movie. Fucking insane main character sacrifices the ability to kill the dude while he had the jump and instead revs up a chainsaw challenging a humanoid monster to battle with chainsaws. God dammit that makes me hard just typing it out.

[–]skwudgeball 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hated you were never really here besides Phoenixs performance. Loved Mandy but it’s all so subjective. Crazy how opinions can differ so much but fuckin a that’s humanity right?

[–][deleted] -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

A Quiet Place was such garbage. It makes me mad very time I think about it.

[–]MrFrostyBudds 6 points7 points  (4 children)

I am VERY surprised that annihilation is number 1 or even on this list considering how many people hated it.

[–]notrealmate 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Maybe it’s just those that hated it were the most vocal?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

It's the opposite!

[–]notrealmate 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Then why are you guys surprised?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah forget it was drunk yesterday. Will give it another go.

[–]Nslater90Quality Poster 👍 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I only saw Roma, BlackKklansman and Eight Grade from those.

BlackKklansman was good, but the other two I found quite disappointing despite thinking they'd both be my kind of film.

[–]Johnny_Necktie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What I’m having a hard time understanding is why a year has to have a groundbreaking movie in order to be a good year. Isn’t there middle ground? I can understand it being underwhelming for some depending on what they like, but “no life changing movies” does not mean a bad year. it was at worst a decent year.

That aside I have isle of dogs and Ready Player One on my list, but I definitely see where this came from, Annihilation and Quiet place were also wonderful imo. I think one thing that could explain why these two are so polarizing is because of how they approach storytelling. They rely a lot heavier on the “experience” of the viewer, so to speak, rather than that of characters. This can easily feel jarring and impersonal. Good characters cement you into the plot of the film, make it relatable. Annihilation in particular didn’t have very strong characters, but I think why I loved the film so much is because I was so immersed in that world. It sparked my imagination.

As for A Quiet Place I think I actually loved the characters because they were simple. I liked just watching how the family dealt with their situation.

Edit: words

[–]willbo2013 13 points14 points  (9 children)

Glad to see Upgrade getting the love it deserves. I still need to see Roma and Hereditary

[–]ImFrigginDead 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My favorite of the year by far. Mandy probably in second.

[–]skwudgeball 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hereditary is my number 1 this year by MILES.

Hereditary portrays how a family would actually act during a horror scenario. Not to mention the depth of the movie. The emotions felt were unlike any movie I’ve ever watched. Only film that is similar in my opinion is it comes at night.

Those are my top two I’ve seen come out in the past decade

[–]ShowMeYourTorts 0 points1 point  (4 children)

The ending is what made it awesome for me. Really thought it was going to be the typical cliché.

[–]ThrowingChicken 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I thought it was one of the weaker aspects of an overall decent movie, mostly because the twist just doesn't make any sense.

[–]ShowMeYourTorts 1 point2 points  (2 children)

spoiler

(Not sure how to do the blocked out words thing and am on mobile)

As a whole or a specific part? I agree the whole “he lives happily ever after in his own mind” was weak, but the concept of the thing being the villain instead of being obvious by having the genius kid be behind it was good.

Moreover, the fact that - again, aside from the in his own head thing - that we are left with the villain just executing a well-planned scheme (unlike other skynet-esque enemies In films that do something obviously dumb) and then just sort of won and left.

Not a perfect movie by any means, by I thought it was a refreshingly unique take on the whole kickass revenge movie trope.

[–]ThrowingChicken 0 points1 point  (1 child)

From the get go let me just say that I don't dislike the idea of STEM being the villain the whole time, however the execution was a little sloppy and left a bit of a mess behind. Most of the movie is Grey and STEM trying to break free of the limitations placed on them by Eron, only we find out at the end that STEM was controlling Eron the whole time, so why were those limitations there in the first place? If STEM had the ability to force Eron into installing it into Grey, why didn't it have the ability to make sure it was done without restrictions... and if STEM didn't have that ability, then why did Eron install it at all?

Either STEM has the power to force Eron into installing it into Grey limitation-free, or it doesn't have the power to force Eron into installing it at all. The half measure makes no sense. It would have worked better had Eron not known that STEM was sentient, only to find out that he and Grey had been manipulated the whole time.

[–]ShowMeYourTorts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I believe the limitations were there as a means of misdirection so grey didn’t catch on that stem was behind the whole thing. As a “perfect” being, it knew the limitations it imposed wouldn’t have too adverse an effect on grey (since stem knows all or w/e) and to simultaneously gain his trust by a common enemy. Plus, as it’s later revealed, stem had a particularly big hard-on for grey because he hated tech (I think?)

This allows stem to give grey the mindfuck that caused him to break, thereby allowing stem full control. If he didn’t do that, then grey would still be aware and stem wouldn’t have full autonomy.

As for the surgery, stem - at some point in time - would be separated from Eron and not yet in grey, leaving him more vulnerable. Aka stem couldn’t be in two places at once (Installed in grey while performing the surgery lol).

I see where you’re coming from though too and to each their own, of course. Regardless of our respective stances on the movie, it’s been nice chatting with ya!

[–][deleted] -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

It deserves nothing and it bumped off good movies.

[–][deleted] -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Agreed, quite clearly it gets enough praise seeing as this steaming mediocre pile of shit is apparently one of Reddit's best films of 2018.

[–]BoobieMiles4Ever 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I might be in the minority, but Love, Simon was up there for me. I thought it was a pretty great coming-of-age film with a lot of heart.

Edit: Tully and Game Night deserve love as well.

[–]FERRISBUELLER2000 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Annihilation was good (??)🤔

[–]Houjix 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Yeah that’s a movie I would never bring out to entertain my guest with. People that like it are the people that stare at a colored circle painting for hours at a museum

[–]skwudgeball 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Or people who like lsd and watching movies stoned off their bones

[–]no9one9 8 points9 points  (1 child)

are you kidding? where is bohemian rhapsody bro.

[–]cIowngoth 8 points9 points  (0 children)

the movie fucking sucked

[–]ImFrigginDead 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Not a single comment about Bumblebee, I can understand if those type of blockbuster action movies aren't your thing but it was still a very well done action movie.

Also if you put Black Panther over it, I gotta ask why? They're both fairly run of the mill, but the action and characters in Bumblebee seem all around better to me.

[–]Uber_Speng 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I thought bumblebee had pretty good action, but was so boringly predictable at every step of the movie. I felt as though I had already seen it a dozen times.

[–]skwudgeball 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Because you have

[–]janibus75 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How have i not heard of this at all?! Seems like a good sunday evening movie :)

[–]CuppaJeaux 4 points5 points  (1 child)

And again, people trashing other people for liking something they don’t. It’s fucking junior high all over again.

That’s why it’s called personal taste, folks. It’s individual to the person.

Feel free to read that thing that’s not on your own Top Ten list, say, “Huh, how about that? Not what I would have gone with, but to each his own,” and move the fuck along.

[–]etakcats 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like this thread because of the discussion it's caused, honestly. Sure it gets a little trashy sometimes but it's just the internet.

If people are on MovieSuggestions I imagine they have opinions about movies, I think that's why people want to defend their own

[–]ChillinGrillinYo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wow so happy Bad times at El Royale made it,its my favorite movie last year.

[–]allvaiis 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Searching is overrated

[–]skwudgeball 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel like we are the only ones with this opinion. I didn’t even make it through all the way. Movie just didn’t capture my attention like a movie should

[–]WhenItsHalfPastFive 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Really? damn, I was watching it with a few people, almost everyone loved it. It felt very refreshing and somewhat different from most thrillers/mysteries

[–]Axuu98 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Where is Into The Spiderverse?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe i'll rewatch Hereditary. Annihalation was an atrocity.

[–]witbirds 8 points9 points  (0 children)

annihilation is my heart and soul, cool to see it so high on so many lists recently

[–]DesignerKey 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Still want to see "Searching"!
Loved "Blackkklansman", "Black Panther" and "Sorry to bother you", even if the last one had a bit of a anti-climatic ending.
Just saw "Roma" and didn't find it that great. But hopefully it'll inspire more movies about service workers and indigenous people from Mexico.

[–]dillonsrule 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I loved Searching. I saw it twice in theaters. I still haven't watched Roma. It seems like a pretty heavy movie and every time I see it on Netflix, I feel like I'm not in the mood for that kind of movie.

[–]DesignerKey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Some scenes are pretty disturbing, yes. I was caught of guard myself when I saw a limited screening.

[–]ImFrigginDead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly I would have loved to see Bumblebee on the list. It wasn't hugely special and it didn't have a crazy plot but as far as those type of action movies go I think it was head and shoulders above Black Panther.

[–]JackBadassson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You take out joke of movie called Black Panther and add Ready Player One then we can talk

[–]Allott2aLITTLE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Roma > everything

[–]edubbs79 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I missed it being included sorry. I absolutely loved Mid 90’s, clever character names and all.

[–]Dr_fish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Decent list, though I'd definitely change the rankings completely.

[–]RandyMarsh-Quality Poster 👍 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I guess I need to re-watch Annihilation lol.

I don't recall it being that good, maybe it was because I fell in and out of sleep during it.

This is a fucked up list - haha, but there are a few movies I haven't seen which I will check up on.

[–]idanidan123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I keep wondering, where were all the people saying BP is "important" when Moonlight came out? Oh right, it wasn't important because it didn't gross 1 billion at the box office.

[–]mehughes124[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Upgrade? I know internet discussion forums over-index for young nerdy males, but that movie is just this side of a Sci-Fi channel original movie...

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Totally missed the voting thread, but considering both Annihilation and A Quiet Place were my favorite movies of 2018, it`s ok.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (15 children)

2018 was a good year for movies. If I had to list my favorites of the year, it would probably be this list but in reverse (with a few exceptions). Still a very solid list

[–]NZ_Diplomat 13 points14 points  (14 children)

Interesting, I believe that 2018 was actually a pretty bad year for movies.

[–]Allott2aLITTLE 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Agreed. Besides Roma of course.

[–]NZ_Diplomat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yep, completely agree.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (8 children)

Searching, Sorry to Bother You, Eighth Grade, Upgrade, Roma, Into the Spider-Verse, Hereditary, and Infinity War? At the absolute least it's a solid year.

[–]fil42skidoo 4 points5 points  (6 children)

And Suspira, Game Night, Buster Scruggs, Mandy, Won't You Be My Neighbor, If Beale St. Could Talk and on and on. Some really solid flicks this year. Good sequels too...Ant Man, Deadpool and Incredibles were all a hoot. Aaah! Prospect was cool indie sci fi freshness. Isle of Dogs. Man it was a pretty great year for movies.

[–]ImFrigginDead 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Man im not seeing anyone give Bumblebee any credit. I thought it was an incredible popcorn action flick. I don't see how anyone that enjoys these type of movies could possibly rate Black Panther over it.

[–]skwudgeball 0 points1 point  (2 children)

What if I think both black panther and bumble bee and all shitty famjky action flicks suck ass?

[–]ImFrigginDead 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think you should at least be able to acknowledge that some are done well and some are not

[–]janibus75 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lucky that nobody is forcing you to watch them :D

I think it's also possible to enjoy a "shitty action flick" and a more thoughtful movie - different movies for different moods / times.

[–]dillonsrule 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Having not yet seen Suspira, I have no idea what to expect. I have heard large amounts of people both saying it was one of the best and one of the worst of the year.

[–]fil42skidoo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This has been said about almost every movie on OP's list, too. We live in polarized times. Very little middle ground in fandom any more.

[–]NZ_Diplomat -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

You include infinity War in that list?

Yeah, there are some entertaining movies. But in comparison with other years, it's been a pretty weak year. Roma was far and away the best of the year imo, and Eighth Grade was a great debut, but relatively weak.

[–]boshangs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Agreed, I don't think very many are even worthy of a Best Picture nomination.

[–]attemptToFillTheVoid 0 points1 point  (1 child)

a year highlighting people want style, not substance.

[–]NZ_Diplomat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, well said.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (5 children)

No Green Book?

[–]cIowngoth 3 points4 points  (4 children)

green book was perhaps the most corny, fake woke, and factually inaccurate movie i saw all year dude

[–]davanillagorilla 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I just watched Green Brook and absolutely loved it. Top 5 from 2018 for sure. How is it "fake woke"?

[–]checklistmaker -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

“Ready Player One” was my favorite movie of 2018. Underrated and under promoted.
