My Top 10 Movies of 2018 Revealed!

What. A. Year! To be honest, I’m not 100% certain that this year has been the best at the movies but I say that this has been a standout year for movies all the same!

  1. We share two films! I am still waiting for a couple of them to come out in the UK. The Favourite is released tomorrow so I will make it my first cinema film of 2019!

  2. Such a rock-solid list with several films I love and that made my list as well. I really struggled with mine this year. Several movies I really liked and hated to leave off. Also lots of new and fresh voices. Great year.
