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. I will still talk about them in my honorable mentions, but these are the films that stuck out to me the most either by quality, or just how I felt about them. Without further ado, here are my ‘Top Ten Movies of 2018’
‘Tully’ is just about as honest a movie about motherhood as it is going to be. It shows the trials as well as the tribulations of what it is like to be a mother to multiple children. No other actress shows the anger and frustration as much as Charlize Theron, who shines in this movie. If this is an early attempt at another Oscar nomination, then it is well deserved. I loved almost everything about ‘Tully’ and what it brought to the screen. I was expecting a great movie from director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody; I can gladly say that I was not disappointed.
