Best Movies of 2018

What is the definitive moment of cinema in 2018, even? For fans of action films, you might hear that films like Black Panther or Avengers: Infinity War charted new paths for the genre. Horror aficionados would point to Hereditary and Suspiria carrying the flag for prestige horror. The real film buffs would tell everyone else they are full of it, and shout that Roma was the only film you'd need to see in theaters (although it's possible that more people could've seen it on Netflix than in a cinema).

Maybe 2018 is the year that everyone got (mostly) what they wanted. Romcoms might not have flooded the theaters, but they thrived on Netflix. Halloween got the proper sequel it deserved, 40 years later. And Boots Riley finally got his movie made. This year contained a number of cinematic wins for a plethora of movie lovers.

All of that said, it's time to put these films into proper perspective. Let's take a look at the best movies of 2018.
