With so many great films still to come this year, we look at our highlights from the first 6 months!
So starting at number 10:
10: Game Night (Our Review)
This fun dark comedy actually made us laugh and the cast which included many familiar faces from our favourite TV shows was a pleasant surprise
9: Ready Player One (Our Review)
Spielberg magic brought Ernest Cline’s book to the big screen, great nods to popular culture made this a great watch
8: Avengers: Infinity War (Our Review)
Potentially this should be higher as it was a real visual spectacle and reminded us why we like the comic book genre, but its ending left us feeling that we had only seen half the film and feel we need to see the second part, but fans of Marvel will love this film
7: Three Billboards (Our Review)
This stunning drama won awards for good reason. Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell are just incredible in this OOscar-winning movie
6: The Shape of Water (Our Review)
We found this unusual tale from Guillermo Del Toro a delight. Amelie with a sea monster, again like Three Billboards it won Oscars for a reason.
5: Isle of Dogs (Our Review)
A wonderful stop motion movie which shows the loyalty of dogs, the premise is actually heart breaking but this really is a must see from the director, Wes Anderson
4: A Quiet Place (Our Review)
For a film that is mostly silent, this was a superb fantasy horror film which will change the way you eat in cinemas for fear of being attacked =)
3: The Greatest Showman (Our Review)
We were late to the party on this runaway musical box office hit which audiences loved and so did we, we pretty much came home and put the soundtrack on straight away
2: Rex (AKA Megan Leavey) (Our Review)
This fantastic movie from the director of Blackfish went straight to DVD in the UK but this was a superb drama about a bomb disposal team that shows the love of a dog and its owner, just brilliant.
And at number one….
1: Solo: A Star Wars Story (Our Review)
Please ignore the haters on the internet, this really is a great fun heist which with all the problems off set whilst making, should never really have happened, we loved it!
Here’s to many more great films in 2018
