28 - The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (2018) - 9.0
29 - Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) 3D - 7.5

I also went to see Infinity War for a second time
coming up: the Camera Japan festival, and the fall season which usually provide a lot of good movies
other than this it is still mostly 2017 movies in theatres for now

Hmm, I don't entirely agree with your assessment of it being a weak year so far, but then I've seen quite a bit more than you have at this point, mostly due to just spending all of my potential free time going to the theater. The blockbusters are of course just as mixed as any other year, but I've found the summer as a whole (or at least as far as mid to low budget offerings go) to be largely exceptional and one of the strongest three-to-four month periods we've had in a long time. The last few weeks or so have been extremely flimsy though, I'll admit, but it's offered some opportunities to go back and revisit some of the ones I really loved, many of which have improved - heck, a second viewing of the Mr. Rogers doc this past weekend propelled it to my #1 spot for the whole year. If I were to recommend you catch up on one blind spot, that'd be my pick. ;)
I could have seen the Mr. Rogers doc yesterday but it was too much of a day already, and I suppose I'm more willing to tolerate most documentaries on video. Possible I'll get to it next week if it's still playing. I also didn't include a few 2017 films on my list that were commercial releases this year, as I see you did, so that would make it a little better as I did get to see more stuff earlier in the year; much of the 2018 stuff I've missed that might've been worthy is from the past 3 months. It's not really do to less enthusiasm for film but I suppose I am getting rather tired of just not being able to see the stuff I want to see in the cinema, and that perhaps takes away some of the interest I might have in the second-tier stuff. And participating in all the challenges has been a huge part of my movie-watching, and of course those rarely coincide with what happens to be on a screen nearby that month.

The Mill Valley Film Festival https://www.mvff.com is showing most of the non-mainstream films on my "to see" list this year. Unfortunately, I won't get back from China until a month after it happens.
For those with the time and money to get away for 1-2 weeks, I suggest a trip to the San Francisco Bay Area, and immersion in what has become a World Class film festival. There are some great restaurants, and lot's to see / do there apart from the festival, as well, and some absolutely stunning nature trails nearby.

A total of 110 films seen (production year 2018). Lots of Netflix stuff in my list of favorites, which is a little odd (because it's not really my primary source for quality films, it's more of a filler service) but which can probably be explained by the fact that it takes most Asian films 1 or 2 years to properly reach the West (in whatever consumable form). Netflix gets them released so much faster than regular channels.

TOP 10:

01. 4.5* - Isle of Dogs (2018)
02. 4.0* - Zoe (2018)
03. 4.0* - Animal World [Dongwu Shijie ] (2018)
04. 4.0* - Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle [Gojira: Kessen Kidô Zôshoku Toshi] (2018)
05. 4.0* - Ghostland (2018)
06. 4.0* - Flavors of Youth [Si Shi Qing Chun] (2018)
07. 3.5* - The Unity of Heroes (2018)
08. 3.5* - Look Away (2018)
09. 3.5* - Concerto of the Bully [Da Yue Shi. Wei Ai Pei Yue] (2018)
10. 3.5* - The Most Assassinated Woman in the World [La Femme la Plus Assassinée du Monde] (2018)

FLOP 10:

01. 0.5* - Ibiza (2018)
02. 0.5* - Hellraiser: Judgment (2018)
03. 1.0* - I Am Not an Easy Man [Je Ne Suis Pas un Homme Facile] (2018)
04. 1.0* - Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
05. 1.0* - Black Panther (2018)
06. 1.0* - Children of the Corn: Runaway (2018)
07. 1.0* - The Little Mermaid (2018)
08. 1.0* - Tomb Raider (2018)
09. 1.0* - Ready Player One (2018)
10. 1.0* - Blockers (2018)

Seen 4 more 2018 films since my last update in this thread, for a current total of 31 films seen so far. I haven't fared all that well with these latest 4:

A Simple Favor (Paul Feig) - 6
Hold the Dark (Jeremy Saulnier) - 6
Searching (Aneesh Chaganty) - 5
The Predator (Shane Black) - 5
I thrive best hermit-style.

I have only seen 5 movies from 2018 so far, just one of them I would recommend:

Bad Times at the El Royale - 8/10

I went in totally blind into this one, which is definitely the best way, since the movie toys with the audience's expectations. Builds up a nice creepy atmosphere and has some great performances. Is a bit too long, I would have cut some of the Chris Hemsworth segment, but worth seeing in my opinion.

Deadpool 2 - 5/10 - Self awareness in superhero movies is not a bad thing, but it can be overdone. And no, Ryan Reynolds, you're not that funny.
Destination Wedding - 6/10 - Just watch the trailer, you will have seen all the highlights of the movie then.
Siberia - 5/10 - Rather cliché thriller. The romance part feels tacked on and there is no chemistry between the leads.
Billionaire Boys Club - 5/10 - Wolf of Wallstreet wannabe.

Saw it yesterday, liked it a lot, but the flashbacks in the second half really disrupted the pace. Great performances by Chris Hemsworth's pecs, couldn't take my eyes off them.


I'm having one hell of a year so far, 3 new favourites already, could easily end up being my favourite year of the decade.

since my last update of 14/10 these are the new 2018 movies I managed to see:

The Night Comes for Us (2018) - 9.0
First Man (2018) - 8.5
Di Renjie zhi Sidatianwang (2018) - 8.5
A Star is Born (2018) - 8.0
Loro (2018) - 8.0
Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) - 7.5
Dogman (2018) - 7.5
McQueen (2018) - 7.5
Niemand in de stad (2018) - 7.5
Halloween (2018) - 7.0
The Sisters Brothers (2018) - 6.5
The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) - 6.5

So that makes it 65 movies from 2018
with 177 cinema visits this year so far, that seems a reasonable amount

My ranking and rating of the 11 films I've seen (according to IMDb; if I went by local release dates, then I'd seen a lot more) comes here... Haven't anything particularly bad yet, The Tale is borderline, but Laura Dern sure makes the film worth watching.

1. Long Day's Journey Into Night (Bi Gan)
2. Ash Is Purest White (Jia Zhangke)
3. An Elephant Sitting Still (Hu Bo)
4. Blue (Apichatpong Weerasethakul)
5. Becoming Animal (Peter Mettler & Emma Davie)
6. Shoplifters (Hirokazu Koreeda)
7. Trees Down Here (Ben Rivers)
8. Hereditary (Ari Aster)
9. In Fabric (Peter Strickland)
10. Bergman - ett år, ett liv (Jane Magnusson)
11. The Tale (Jennifer Fox)

another 14 movies from 2018 seen within 17 days, mostly because of the Leiden Film Festival

Suspiria (2018) - 9
Au Poste! (2018) - 8,5
Sorry to Bother You (2018) - 8
Classical Period (2018) - 8
Eighth Grade (2018) - 8
Gräns (2018) - 7,5
Thugs of Hindostan (2018) - 7,5
El Ángel (2018) - 7,5


The Green Fog (2018) - 6,5
Le monde est à toi (2018) - 6,5
Assassination Nation (2018) - 6,5
Overlord (2018) - 6,5
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) - 6,5
Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota (2018) - 4,5


Two Indian movies. One kinda childish take on 80's action hero's that I really didn't like and the other is the big Diwali release of this year, that is reported as being very bad and the most expensive movie made in Bollywood. It is not that bad, but it certainly doesn't look like the most expensive… so a bit of critisism is deserved. Also don't expect Thuggees to be the central characters, at all.

Classical Period is a big discovery for me. Made by an US indie auteur who clearly just does what he likes. And what he likes is Straub-Huillet. There is a bit of American hubris to it, but at the same time so unique and charming, in an introverted way, that it only comes across as honest and something that I really like.

Man, I need to see Suspiria again, the first time I saw it I wasn't really with it for the first 100 minute or so, partly due to fatigue on account of it being my third screening of the day, but that last half hour was just insane.

I can still say for certain that I prefer it to the original and it's easily the best film I've seen from Guadagnino.

I wasn't too crazy about either Suspiria, but yeah, I did prefer Guadagnino's take on it.

Well, I went to see it again, I appreciated the build up a bit more this time around, and the whole thing made more sense (the act 6 reveal isn't as out of the blue as I initially thought), but still felt too back-loaded.

Don't quite feel like retyping my entire list up to this point, so here's another link to my Letterboxd list, ranked mostly to my preferences as of this moment: https://letterboxd.com/cshardin/list/2018-ranked/

Still need to see:

Suspiria
Free Solo
Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Ralph Breaks the Internet
Creed II
Green Book
Burning
Shoplifters
If Beale Street Could Talk
The Favourite
Roma
The Mule
Mary Poppins Returns
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
They Shall Never Grow Old
Mary Queen of Scots
Vice
Vox Lux
On the Basis of Sex
Everybody Knows
Sunset
Three Faces
The Wild Pear Tree

There's an even longer list of films that I'm on the fence towards and might see but also may not (stuff like Bohemian Rhapsody, The Front Runner, Fantastic Beasts II, Aquaman, etc) but these are just about all the ones I know of now which I'd really like to check out before the end of this particular awards cycle.

Of course. It's always fun to kill farmers over mundane reasons.

Yeah, not about to re-post or edit my yearly ranks here. Again, I refer any curious souls to my Letterboxd full 2018 ranks: https://letterboxd.com/cshardin/list/2018-ranked/

Stuff I'm more or less interested in which I still need to see:

Mandy
Free Solo (probably seeing in IMAX this week)
Burning
Mirai
Vox Lux
Ben is Back
On the Basis of Sex
Stan & Ollie
At Eternity's Gate
Capernaum
Sunset
Three Faces
The Wild Pear Tree

And just to complete my bit from the midway point of 2018, here be some of my personal favorite film score highlights from the second half of the year:

Eighth Grade (Anna Merideth)



BlackKklansman (Terence Blanchard)



The Sisters Brothers (Alexandre Desplat)



First Man (Justin Hurwitz) *how did this one not even manage to get an Oscar nod!?*



Suspiria (Thom Yorke)



The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (Carter Burwell)



Widows (Hans Zimmer) *not a big Zimmer acolyte, but there's some effective atmospheric stuff to be found here*



Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (James Newton Howard) *didn't bother actually seeing this turkey in theaters - but I'm a pretty big JNH fan & won't pass up a chance to listen to whatever lush, brassy fantasy compositions he comes up with next*



Creed II (Ludwig Goransson)



If Beale Street Could Talk (Nicholas Britell)



Overall not exactly the strongest or most consistent year for film music compositions (seems like an overall stronger year for original songs than musical scores) but as with every year, there's been enough memorable highlights to make a decent enough sized list.
