3SMReviews: 2018 at the Movies

 In Everything, Fun Lists, Lists

I use Letterboxd to keep track of my movies. If you’re not familiar, it’s like Goodreads, but for movies.* It’s great for keeping track of what you’ve watched, and it also allows you to make as many lists as you want, which is handy when you want to slice and dice things. Among other lists, I keep a list of movies I’ve watched in a given year in movie theaters.

*If you’re not familiar with Goodreads, then do some googling as both of these sites are great for list-making fans who like to give opinions (or not).

Because nearly all movies I watch at theaters are current releases, this list also doubles nicely as a Top-10 list.

And we’re going to get to that Top-10 List in a second. But first, I need to pick my favorite movie of 2018.

Without further ado, my favoirite movie of 2018 was……

3SMReviews: Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade is written and directed by Bo Burnham and stars Elsie Fisher who carries that movie on her slumped shoulders. Read my original review here.

Without further ado, here are all the films I watched in 2018 in theaters, ranked.
