TDD Drill Bits Award

On this week’s The Drill Down podcast, we put aside current news in order to review the year that was 2018. And this time around, as we did last year, instead of merely having a stack-ranked list of top news of the year, we’re going to make tech news compete for awards, affectionately called The Drill Bits.

So put on your tuxes, get in the limo, and roll out the red carpet, ’cause the show’s about to begin!

Top Horror Movies of 2018

This past year was one of the best for horror. In the world of film there were big-budget blockbusters and critical and financial successes. On TV and the various streaming services we were treated to a bevy of soon-to-be classic series. Eli Roth hit it out of the park with his phenomenal History of Horror on AMC. Netflix went back to the Mike Flanagan well and struck gold again with The Haunting of Hill House. Hulu is releasing new horror films every month as part of their Into the Dark series, along with the Stephen King-inspired Castle Rock. Shudder is dominating the horror streaming world providing the horror fan the closest experience to walking the video store aisles (you’ll hear the words “Shudder Exclusive” a few times in this list). Speaking of Shudder, we got the epic return of Joe Bob Briggs, who did three separate Drive-In marathons for the network, breaking the internet with his first. We even got the return of horror-staple Fangoria magazine!

Compiling my top genre (horror/sci-fi/thriller/etc.) list of 2018 proved difficult. The original idea of a Top 10 quickly spiraled out of control and ballooned into a Top 20, plus Honorable Mentions. In an amazing coincidence, a ton of these films were done by first-time feature directors. So without further ado, let’s get to my list of Top 20 Horror & Genre Films of 2018.

Top 30 Films Of 2018 Movies of 2018

Another year has come and gone. 2018 is a year I wish wouldn’t have ended simply because of the plethora of cinematic pleasure that it offered. The majority of the films on my best of the year list possessed an unceasing pursuit to locate and dissect deflated masculinity, crushed egos, and saying goodbye to the thing one loves most. Surprisingly, female directors had an enormous year in 2018 and they were at the forefront at perceiving that masculinity was in peril. Films such as Western, The Rider, You Were Never Really Here, Zama, and Private Life, all of which were directed by women, gave us a glimpse at what happens to a man when their masculinity is wounded. Egos were also susceptible to directors’ probing cameras this year, ripe for endless rumination. How can a priest continue to maintain a strong image when he’s slowly loosing his faith in First Reformed? The women in The Favourite care tremendously about their image and position, and will do whatever it takes to maintain it. An aging director in The Other Side of the Wind does things only his way, hardly listening to anyone within his circle, and the results are catastrophic. And the madman at the center of The House that Jack Built has the biggest ego of all, which eventually paves his way to enter Hell.

Here are my Top 30 Movies of 2018…

Top 10 Movies of 2018

2018 is over and as we head towards award season, it’s LIST TIME!!! This will not be a traditional Top 10 “Best of” list as there are plenty of Golden Globe nominees and potential Oscar contenders still on my must-see list. Instead this will be a straight up Top 10 Favorite Movies of 2018 list. I for one thought 2018 was a stellar year in film. A lifelong horror geek, my Top 10 horror list ballooned into a Top 25 extravaganza. Genre films did make my Top 10 favorites, but the list also features theatrical blockbusters, straight to Netflix offerings, and an incredible five films from first-time feature-length directors. Here we go!

Mike Lee's Top Ten Movies Of 2018

It’s that time of year again when critics release their top ten movies of the year. No list is really the same, but each is a glimpse of a critic’s tastes in movies. Some have a mix of blockbusters and indie films, others lean heavily towards the former or the latter. Whatever the case may be, we can all come to the conclusion that films are a means of an escape or to be entertained by. They help us grieve or express joy and love. Each year gives us such a variety of films that allows us to express those emotions.

But what makes this year extraordinary special is that it took a giant step forward for representation. Some of the best films showed us that anyone can wear the mask. Another celebrates a culture that has gone under-represented for far too long by using a familiar yet effective rom-com formula. Other films spoke out to send a clear message about injustice. Then there are the sequels that thoroughly entertained us after 10 years of franchise storytelling.

So while the best films of the year are a matter of opinion, below are my top ten favorite films of the year. Some of these films won’t appear on anybody’s list. Some won’t even be ranked the same. But these are the films that meant the most to me, and if you haven’t seen them, I hope my choices encourage you to do so. See below for my top 10 movies of 2018.

Avengers: Infinity War Movies Of 2018

As we dust off from another summer movie season, and get ready to dive into Fall and of course Oscar season, I think it is time to take a look at my list of the Top 10 Movies of 2018 … so far.

As I look over the list of movies I have seen so far, I can say there are a few surprises and a few movies that I can say disappointed me a little. But let’s keep things positive and talk about the best movies I have seen so far.

Hereditary movie review Movies Of 2018

Already halfway through the year and we have experienced some grand films (still need to check out Paul Schrader’s supposed masterpiece First Reformed). Such a reassuring fact since a lot of people proclaimed cinema to be dead a year ago or so. We have witnessed art house masterpieces, horror films that won’t soon be forgotten, and blockbuster films that proved to have big topics on their minds and a beating heart. But the best of the best so far this year were films that made their characters approach something that was guaranteed to frighten and shake some to their core on their way to discovering truths, even if they were hard to handle. Here are the Best Movies of 2018 … So Far, presented in alphabetical order with an additional ten honorable mentions.

Top 10 Horror Movies of 2017

I was so excited pooling together my list of the best horror movies of 2017. Pretty quickly the list went upwards of 20 films. 2017 was a remarkable year for horror both critically and at the box office. Andy Muschietti’s IT broke records and finished 6th in yearly box office returns. Jordan Peele captured the zeitgeist of America with his debut film, the instant classic, Get Out. Even M. Night Shyamalan re-emerged as a viable hitmaker with Split, which featured both an acclaimed performance by James McAvoy and a twist ending worthy of watercooler talk. And then there’s Guillermo del Toro, who reimagined 1950s monster movie Creature from the Black Lagoon as a Cold War era romantic drama and created my favorite movie of the year with The Shape of Water. It occurred to me as I was making the list that a Top 10 Horror Movies list would be very similar to my Top 10 Movies of 2017. So rather than listing the obvious choices, I’m going to list some hidden gems and lesser-known horror films that were overshadowed in an awesome year for the genre.

See below for my Not-So-Obvious Top 10 Horror Movies of 2017.

Seandps Top 10 Movies of 2017

And so another year of movies has come to a close, and like most people, I would say it was a pretty great year at the box office. And as I look over my list of movies of 2017, I see I reached 77 films watched. And for those who are new to my posts, that includes any movie I saw for the first time, so the easiest and first cut as I whittle down my list to ten movies, is to get rid of the older movies. That mostly consists of the movies that I see during the Best Picture Showcase every year. And as a quick refresh, you can check out my top ten list at the halfway point here .

At that point we were just finished with the summer movie season and we just dipping our toes into the Oscar season. It’s that time of the year where we get to see if the popcorn movies can survive the serious and dramatic movies. I will say that there are a few Oscar worthy movies I did not get a chance to see, partly due to the fact that I go to the Best Picture Showcase every year, and don’t want to have to sit through a bad movie a second time. Will Logan remain at the #1 spot, and would any of the #5-10 survive? Before we get to my final 10, I would like to mention a few movies that fall in the honorable mention and were ones I went back and forth on whether it was worthy of making the final cut.
