movies of 2018

Well I didn't get to The Favourite or Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse this weekend, but it seems unlikely either would make my favo(u)rites of the year---tho the latter is getting mad-good reviews, so maybe I'm wrong.  I'll do without them for the purposes of this post, along with the ones I still want to see (first among them The Death of Stalin).

First, the Honorable Mentions--- entertaining films I enjoyed:

  Black Panther
  ETA: If Beale Street Could Talk
ETA:  Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse
  Ready Player One
  Three Identical Strangers
  A Star is Born
  Eighth Grade
  Crazy Rich Asians
  Can You Ever Forgive Me?
  Mary Poppins Returns

And now my faves, roughly in order:

  ETA: Roma
  Incredibles 2
  Bad Times at the El Royale

  ETA: The Favourite*
  American Animals*
  Isle of Dogs*
  Deadpool 2
  Ralph Breaks the Internet*

Half of them (the *s) I'd probably not watch again, I suspect (two because they're harsh, one because that was enough), but there they are.

Also Deadpool 2 probably wouldn't have made the list if I'd known about (and seen) Deadpool before this year.  And I haven't yet seen Wreck-It Ralph, which is apparently considered better than its sequel.

For later reference, the still-to-see list

  The Death of Stalin
  Game Night
  Science Fair
  A Simple Favor
  Avengers: Infinity War
  Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood
  Skate Kitchen
  Won't You Be My Neighbor?
  Shoplifters (Manbiki Kazoku)
  ETA: If Beale Street Could Talk


I'd love to hear what your favorite films of the year were, lj people, if you feel like saying.
