DiS best films of 2018 poll

Thought I’d give this another go after last year’s successful effort. It feels like there’s less of a consensus about the best films so far as well, so will be interesting to see how the results end up!

I’m looking for your top 5 films of 2018, going by the general UK release date, ordered like this:

1 - 1st Place
2 - 2nd Place
3 - 3rd Place

Any Netflix or streaming films are fine, as is putting fewer than 5 films if you really want to. Also no “joint firsts” please, I’ll just take the first 5 films you list and score them accordingly.

I won’t be doing the results until the start of the new year so there’s no rush.

Merry filming! :film_projector:

Is this via DM or in the thread?

Gonna sleep on this until I see Roma.

These threads always hammer home how bad I am at remembering which year things came out

Yeah I’d have no ideas if I didn’t use Letterboxd

Leave No Trace is the best film of the year.

Please watch this before voting lest you embarrass yourself forever.


MI was the only film I’ve walked out of the cinema for this year. Opinions!

The last 30 mins was wicked

  1. Antman 2
  2. Deadpool 2
  3. Solo
  4. Black Panther
  5. Uncle Drew

It’s the only film I’ve seen twice in the cinema this year!

What did you not like about it? At what point did you leave?

A Fantastic Woman


Everything from Paris onwards was brilliant, but yeah, the last half hour was the most fun I’ve had in a cinema this year.

Pfft, it’s no Paddington 2…

The film received universal critical acclaim, with praise for the performances of Foster and McKenzie, and, after Paddington 2 , it is the second-most reviewed film to hold an approval rating of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
