2018: In Review Quick Review Year In Review

So 2018 is almost over and it’s that time a year again where everyone reflects back on their best and worst films of the year.  So first up… the 10 WORST films of 2018 (with a few honourable mentions!).  And, as always, there were quite a few to choose from..


Stinker of The Year: The Cloverfield Paradox (2018)

In Brief: In a year where there is both a Transformers movie and a Fifty Shades Movie it takes a special kind of rubbish to bin them BOTH.  Well step up to the mark The Cloverfield Paradox – a total mess of a film dumped on Netflix by Paramount with all the love of a bottom draw direct to DVD release.  And rightly so… poorly made, badly acted with shoddy direction and a total lack of clarity.  This is everything wrong with studio filmmaking right here.



2. Fifty Shades Freed
In Brief: Rubbish but mildly better than the previous entries in the series.  Still about as sexy as a group shower at a OAP weight watchers meeting, the franchise limps to a conclusion like all the grave of a flaccid penis.


3. Annihilation
In Brief: Alex Garland wrote one of my favourite films of all time (28 Days Later).  He’s now directed one of my least.  Another direct to Netflix joints – Annihilation is a pretentious, non-sensical pile of rubbish that thinks it’s far cleverer than its audience.


4. A Wrinkle In Time
In Brief: A Wrinkle In Time so so dull I fell sleep twice whilst watching it.  I think that says all you need to know about this over stacked mess.  That said my daughter liked it a lot so what do I know?


5. Mile 22
In Brief:  Considering the films Berg and Marky Mark have made previously, Mile 22 should have at LEAST been fun.  It’s not. It’s a total disaster.


6. Gotti – Badlymadefellas.

7. The Spy Who Dumped Me – Unfunny, overlong and a mess

8. Renegades – Totally forgettable.

9. Red Sparrow – A film you didn’t need or want

10. Ocean’s 8 – yawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwn


Dis-Honourable Mentions: The Humanity Bureau, All The Money In The World,  Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Patient Zero, Isle Of Dogs, Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell, The First Purge, Ralph Breaks The Internet 


The 2018 Films I just couldn’t Finish: Once Upon a Time in Venice
