(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)
When considering the best in cinema, it can be easy to overlook the movies that go out of their way to make us crack up. For whatever reason, comedy never seems as significant or important as comedy. But if we didn’t laugh, there’d be nothing to pick us up from those sad moments. So as part of our look back at the decade that was 2010 through 2019, I wanted to make sure we singled out the funniest movies of the year. No, I’m not just picking the best comedies, because sometimes the funniest movies can’t be so simply classified in a single genre like that. Instead, I wanted to pick the movies that made us laugh the hardest, most frequently, and most consistently. Without further adieu, let’s get into the Top 15 Funniest Movies of the Decade.

While most of 2018 has brought pure madness around the world, we can take solace in the fact that this year also brought us plenty of great movies. Though I’ll admit that I didn’t see nearly as many as I wanted, I still found myself wowed over and over again by a wide variety of cinema, from some of the year’s biggest blockbusters to the most beautiful, elegant dramas.
So without further adieu, let’s get into my Top 10 Films of 2018. Read More »
Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, let’s rank The Best Movie Trailers of 2018.

Several actors in Steve McQueen’s new heist film Widows have appeared in multiple movies this year: Carrie Coon was in Avengers: Infinity War, Elizabeth Debicki was in The Tale and The Cloverfield Paradox, Daniel Kaluuya was in Black Panther, and Brian Tyree Henry is having a heck of a year by appearing in If Beale Street Could Talk, Hotel Artemis, White Boy Rick, and more.
But there’s one other Widows cast member who’s having a prolific 2018: Olivia, the West Highland white terrier who serves as Viola Davis’s pet pup in the film. And if you’re thinking, “Hmm, where else have I seen her this year?”, you may have missed our headline: Olivia also popped up in Netflix series Insatiable and had a memorable part to play in the party-gone-wrong comedy Game Night.

Good job guys, we’ve made it halfway through 2018! Now there’s only six months left of this hellish year to go. But we’ll always have movies, and thank goodness this year’s movies have been more than up to the task of alternately letting us escape reality or tapping into our deepest intimate and sociopolitical anxieties.
Each day this week, a different member of Team /Film has been counting down his or her favorite films of the year so far. I’m the last to go this week and may have a few surprises on my list — which ranges from heartwarming family films, to pitch-black comedies, to meditations on life, love, and grief. So without further ado, here are my top 10 movies of 2018 so far.

While the fresh hellscape that is every day of 2018 brings a new nightmare multiple times a day, the movies this year have provided us some kind of escape. As usual, some of those movies have done it better than others, and that’s why members of the /Film team are counting down their favorite movies of the year at the halfway point of 2018. Now it’s my turn.
In order to qualify for our lists, obviously we had to have seen the movie already, but the movie didn’t have to be released before the midway point of the year. As long a movie has a release date for 2018, it’s eligible. So let’s get down to the wide variety of movies that impressed me enough to make my Top 10 Movies of 2018 So Far, including a #1 pick that will probably stir the pot just a little bit. Read More »
