Jacob’s Top Ten Movies of 2018

We are already in the second month of 2019, and awards season is already reaching its peak when The Oscars hit on the 26th, which means that my ‘Top Ten Movies’ list is a bit overdue. A lot has happened that has caused me to lose track of reviews last year, so it took me a long time to keep making them. On the bright side, 2018 had a lot of great movies, so much so that it was really hard to write a Top Ten list without making a few sacrifices.

‘Deadpool 2’ Film Review

Grade: A

Brad Pitt, Josh Brolin, Ryan Reynolds, Terry Crews, Bill Skarsgård, Leslie Uggams, Morena Baccarin, Lewis Tan, Stefan Kapicic, Rob Delaney, Shioli Kutsuna, Karan Soni, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, and Brianna Hildebrand in Deadpool 2 (2018)

The character of Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) is a gift from Marvel heaven, though he has yet to make his appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (The Disney/Fox merger happened in 2017). We might as well enjoy these cinematic offerings while they are hot, naughty, and R-rated.
