Movie Reviews

Movies I Watched in 2018

 

 

While 2018 may not have been the most productive year on this blog for me, it was one of the more productive years of my life outside of this blog. I’ve allowed myself more time to pursue some of my other passions while still sharing my thoughts and opinions on each of the movies I watched. And even though my reviews are getting shorter, I also like to think that’s allowed me to come to a more thorough and precise point in my reviews.

 

I learned a lot about film reviewing in 2018, probably the most I’ve learned since I started this blog, about making my points as clear and memorable as I can. I will carry these lessons forward with me as I do my best to continue providing quality reviews that others enjoy reading.

 

So with all that said, as always, I like to take a look back at all the movies I watched this last year as a quick reminder for everyone, including myself. This also gives me a chance to go back and change the grades on films that I might like more now or like even less than I did the first time. There will also be a few movies on this list that I didn’t review for one reason or another. So let’s take a look back at what 2018 brought me and what I’d grade each of those films.
