netflix most binged 2018

Everyone fell in love with Peter Kavinsky in Netflix‘s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before — but did they fall in love enough to watch him and Lara Jean flirt up a storm multiple times? Yes, but not as many times as another movie. Netflix has released their year-end list of the movies and TV shows that viewers binged the most, and the No. 1 movie is surprisingly not To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. It was the earlier summer teen rom-com, The Kissing Booth.

Here’s what else made the list of the Netflix most binged titles.

true detective season 3

The latest trailer for True Detective season 3 takes star Mahershala Ali back through his past, and takes us back to the mood and tone of the acclaimed first season of the HBO anthology show. The newest season of True Detective follows Ali’s Detective Wayne Hays, who investigates the disappearance of two children in the heart of the Ozarks, and continues to be dogged by the grisly case for decades.

aquaman review

Aquaman is a movie that shouldn’t work. You’ve got Nicole Kidman eating a live goldfish in one scene, and an octopus playing the bongos in another — plus an absurd number of men sticking their heads down toilets (actually it’s just once, but it feels like a bit that goes on forever). And yet James Wan’s aquatic comic book movie is a total blast to watch.

On the heels of his scene-stealing introduction in last year’s Justice League, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman finally gets his own solo outing in an epic, sprawling adventure that is more than a match for his wild surfer bro superhero that spawned so many memes. Wan has managed to build an entire movie around Momoa’s laid-back hyper-masculine persona and uses it as a launchpad to create a staggeringly ambitious, visually overwhelming movie that crashes into you like a tidal wave.

The 2019 Oscars Might Not Have a Host At All

2019 oscars host

Despite the alleged “ultimatum” given to Kevin Hart amidst the outcry over his response to resurfaced offensive tweets, it seems the the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences didn’t have a back-up plan in mind when the actor-comedian quit as the 2019 Oscars host.

The Academy has been sent scrambling for a replacement in the wake of Hart’s departure, but some reports suggest that they may just go without a host at all for next year’s Oscar ceremony — something that hasn’t happened since the 1989 ceremony.

birds of prey title

Birds of Prey‘s full title just rolls off the tongue. In full, it’s called Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of Harley Quinn), and has been confirmed to be the official title and not some joke that star Margot Robbie scribbled on the script. Now writer Christina Hodson is here to explain why they settled on that title, and how it’s actually important to the movie.

doctor who season 12

You’re going to need a TARDIS to see the next season of Doctor Who. On the heels of star Jodie Whittaker confirming that she is staying at the helm of the TARDIS for at least another season, the BBC announced that Doctor Who season 12 is on its way…in 2020. That’ll be more than a year after the end of season 11, which wrapped last night. And yes, while we do have at least one Doctor Who episode to look forward to in 2019 with the upcoming New Year’s Day special, it’s hard to imagine living a full year without the Doctor coming to call.

doctor who the battle of ranskoor av kolos review

There’s a line from Peter Capaldi’s run as the Doctor that I keep going back to during this inspiring, but uneven, 11th season of Doctor Who: “Well to be fair, they cut out all the jokes!” This episode, and to an extent this season, could have done with a couple of laughs.

While Jodie Whittaker has injected new life into the show, uttering every line with a twinkling bravado and generally being the best, her strong performance has barely been enough to make up for what has been just an okay season. I had hopes for new showrunner Chris Chibnall to right the ship after Steven Moffat steered it into the eye of the hurricane, but it seems that Chibnall has taken the series to the most placid waters. Except for the historical episodes, this season of Doctor Who has been, for the most part, kind of bland. The show had only started to feel properly like Doctor Who — after treading around familiar monsters and nods to the show — in the past four episodes, which took the season (and in last week’s case, the show) to an all-time high. It’s no surprise that those four episodes were each penned by a different writer who wasn’t Chibnall. But the showrunner took to the pen again for the season finale, “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos,” and as a result, we end the season on an underwhelming note.
