2018 was a great year for movies and it was a whole lot of stuff to check out and enjoy. Now that the year has ended, we can easily look back at some of the best moments. This includes the most interesting moments that we had in movies. And while some franchises did not fare that well during the year, others thrived and some newcomers really impressed a lot of people.
Just like many lists, this one is very subjective, but it really goes to show just what people can expect and what type of movies a lot of people really enjoyed. What movies were great this year? Let’s check it out!
Mission: Impossible – Fallout
It’s getting harder and harder to create action movies as people always expect something off the charts. And with Mission: Impossible – Fallout you really get the ultimate action experience. Tom Cruise is at his best in this movie and the interesting thing is that the movie does a great job with his character too. The thriller aspect is as good as it has ever been. And they also brought in some great new characters that want to eliminate Ethan Hunt.
All of this adds up to some really good moments and suspense. The movie gets better and better, it has some really interesting and challenging moments, plus it’s just a whole lot of fun to explore all these great ideas all the time. It’s a wonderful movie for the entire family. And the lack of too much CGI as well as the focus on practicality is amazing.
Avengers: Infinity War
Avengers: Infinity War managed to accrue a lot of money and the best thing about it is that it really shows just how amazing superhero movies really are. The focus on Thanos as a villain is very interesting. And we get to see the human side of that character. While we won’t care about the character itself, we will care about his motivations, what he wants to do and the numerous different situations that he has to face in the movie.
And it wouldn’t be a good comic movie without the right amount of tension and excitement. If you always want to have fun and enjoy lots of beautiful visual effects, this is a great movie for you. The story is definitely good too, which adds to the entire experience.
Staying in the superhero realm, we have Black Panther which was a huge hit for a lot of people. And this is mostly because it focuses on the importance of black people in our society. Which is a great thing, because it delivers an amazing representation of the society, how we can improve the situation and so on. The movie also has a powerful antagonist and exciting new story ideas that weren’t a part of any other movie. Which really shows the intensity and fun of the game for sure.
The first Incredibles movie was released quite a lot of time ago, so it does make a lot of sense to check out Incredibles 2 and see what the family did onward with their lives. This time we see them in a new mission. Now the female hero has to change the world when Mr Incredible has to take care of the house. This does bring in front some comedic idea that are unlike any other stuff you will find out there. It’s interesting as it is rewarding, so you do need to check it out and give it a shot at the very least, you can rest assured of that. Overall, it’s a fun movie with new twists and some great characters. That’s nice to see, especially now that the adventures can also include their kids and more of their powers.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Since the first Jurassic World made more than $1 billion, we expected the sequel to come very soon. And it did, the movie still made a ton of money to begin with. The problem here is that the story is less focused on scale and more on something simpler. Which is not exactly what people wanted. There are some big action scenes still, so overall the movie does bring in that sense of scale and enticing opportunities you expect. And it also made a lot of money too. Most people wanted to see Jeff Goldbloom reprise his role, and we got to see that too.
As a whole, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom doesn’t surpass the first movie in this revamped series, but it’s still something fun and encouraging for the most part. If you really love dinosaurs and great CHI, you are bound to like this movie quite a bit. There’s a whole lot for everyone in here, and that’s the coolest thing you can get for sure!
