Top Films of 2018
My personal favourite films of 2018
There were so many fantastic films that came out throughout 2018 that it is difficult to create a round up of my favourites. It was a year where superhero movies blew viewers collective minds, the rom-com returned to pull on our heartstrings, and dark comedies made us question ourselves for laughing.
There were so many incredible films released that I obviously couldn't share all of them with you, so this is just a selection of the ones that have stayed with me well into 2019.
The Shape of Water
I have a sneaky feeling this film technically came out in 2017; however, I don't believe it was in Australia until 2018, so I'm going to include it. Not everybody loved this movie as much as I did, but I thought it was so creative, and the colour palette touched my soul.
Is it okay to admit that I felt physically ill going to see this film because I was so nervous about what was going to happen? This film managed to make me cry on two occasions while also exceeding all my expectations.
Oh boy, this film was hard to watch, but it was so compelling that I'd recommend it to anyone. I felt every emotion under the sun, watching this film and it will stay with you long after the credits roll.
Set It Up
Whenever I watch a rom-com, I find that very few characters feel like genuine people, that's not an issue in Set It Up. The characters are very relatable, and the dialogue feels a lot smoother than many other films in this genre.
Bad Times at the El Royale
I don't know how to describe this film, but it takes you on a surprising ride, so I'd recommend sitting back and just watching the craziness unfold. It also has an incredible soundtrack that I have listened to more times than I can count.
Marvel has proved once again that they have become the masters of creating compelling villains. The sets and costuming were brilliant, and it's one of the most empowering superhero movies you'll see.
The Death of Stalin
This film is one of the best pieces of satire I have seen in a long time. I think there was an excellent balance of dark and humorous moments. The first half was the particular stand out for me, so I'd recommend it if you're into this kind of film.
