2018 was such a great year for movies!
Like @JazliAziz, I also loved Avengers: Infinity War. That it managed to bring together the stories and characters from more than a dozen movies made over the course of a decade was impressive, and that it did so while also being a fantastically entertaining movie is completely unprecedented in film history. It could have been a boggy mess, but instead it's an impeccably crafted rollercoaster ride.
Here are some of my other favorite movies from 2018 (excluding ones that have already been mentioned):
Bad Times at the El Royale is like The Hateful Eight meets Smokin' Aces meets...something else. Four Rooms? I dunno. Anyway, it's delightful and dark and creepy and fun, and Cynthia Erivo completely steals the entire show. I loved it.
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is the Coen Brothers at their best, telling six stories that deftly weave comedy, drama, action, and pathos into a nihilistic Western that's like nothing else in the genre. I laughed. I cried. I pondered the meaninglessness of existence.
Game Night appears, on the surface, to be a silly comedy based on a silly premise. But it's so deftly executed, so consistently funny, and such a refreshing departure from modern movie comedy tropes that it rises above its genre.
It also wins a special award for my single favorite line delivery of the year: Rachel McAdams's "Yes! ... Oh no, he died!" when a henchman gets sucked into a jet engine. 😂
