2018 was a fantastic year and arguably the best yet this decade. At the very least it was the most consistent year for quality in film. Our first film/review of 2018 was Paddington 2, a film that likely could show up in Part 2 of this show. Black Panther and Annihilation came out in February, followed by Isle of Dogs, A Quiet Place and Ready Player One (a flawed but very fun film), and not long after we saw the likes of You Were Never Really Here, Game Night and Blockers (a great surprise). The summer gave us Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Incredibles 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp and Hereditary – all films we really liked to one degree or another. July and early August though will go down as perhaps the richest vast of time we’ve experienced so far in the InSesson Film era with back to back to back to back etc films in Leave No Trace, Eighth Grade, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, Blindspotting, BlackKklansman, Loveless, Free Solo, Three Identical Strangers and Crazy Rich Asians. And of course the fall was also great in giving us First Man, Widows, If Beale Street Could Talk, Suspria, Mandy, A Star is Born, Roma, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Blaze, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Ralph Breaks the Internet and so many more. Hell, even Aquaman and Bumblebee were really fun. 2018 will no doubt go down as one of the best years in the decade, especially for documentaries and foreign language films. That said, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
