Phil’s Worst Films of 2018

Phil’s Worst Films of 2018

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

Ralph Breaks The Internet (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Ralph Breaks The Internet (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Ralph Breaks The Internet is a sequel that very much feels like more of the same – it’s well made, it looks pretty and has a few clever ideas but ultimately much like the original Wreck It Ralph it’s just not funny, charming or clever enough to hold my attention for it’s near two hour run time.  Okay yup The Star Wars stuff is fun, the Disney Princesses stuff clever but the rest is pretty Meh!  Both films just feel like lost opportunities and even my 8 year old daughter wasn’t that enamoured. One to skip.

Best Bit: Disney Princesses

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid

If You Liked this Try: Wreck It Ralph, Zootopia, Big Hero 6
