Phil’s 5 Best Films of 2018

Phil’s 5 Best Films of 2018

2018: In Review Quick Review Year In Review

And that’s it.  Another year in the rear view mirror and another reason to take a look back at the BEST, WORST and, well, others of 2018.  So here it is… my pick of the Best Films of 2018.

 

Film of The Year: Coco

In Brief: Coco has No1 spot for almost the whole year.  Yup in a year of great Animation (once again!) it’s yet another Pixar film that nails the top spot.  Coco is just amazing.  Emotionally engaging, heartfelt and funny it’s everything Animated cinema can be and more.


2. Mission Impossible: Fallout

In Brief: : The 6th Mission Impossible film delivers some of the biggest, best and most impressive action sequences ever committed to film.  It’s tense, well crafted and modern action cinema at it’s best.


3. I, Tonya

In Brief:  I, Tonya is Goodfellas on Skates.  No it is.  Really.  Robbie is sublime, the direction on point and humour expertly delivered.


4. A Quiet Place

In Brief: Another low budget horror , A Quiet Place is without a doubt one of the most tense films of the year.  Also here’s  first TWO Emily Blunt films in the top 5.

 

5. Mary Poppins Returns 

In Brief: Damn it who knew? A funny, charming, engaging throw back to days of old that just get’s you from the start.  They really don’t make them like this any more…

 

6. Mandy – Mandy is a surreal, trip of a movie full of OTT gore, OTT action and OTT violence

7. My Generation – A top notch documentary starring Sir Michael Caine.

8. Lady Bird – An excellent Award smashing coming of age drama

9. Revenge – Violent, original and unlike anything else this year

10. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri – Award darling, it’s the performances that sit at the centre of this film that make it stand out

 

Bubbling Under:  Molly’s Game, First Man, You Were Never Really Here, The Festival, Calibre, Avengers: Infinity War, Game Night, Black Panther, Ready Player One, Office Uprising, The Post, Bohemian Rhapsody

The Post – A Quick Capsule Review

The Post – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Post is Spielberg at his most ‘Oscar’.  That isn’t a necessarily a bad thing – the story of the Washing post breaking confidential Vietnam documents is ripe for a big screen retelling.  It’s dramatic, well performed (of course you’d expect that with Streep and Hanks at the centre) and has enough urgency to drive you through what, in another directors hands, could be a lot less than thrilling.   Well worth it’s nominations and praise.

Best Bit: The presses roll
