My Top Picks

  1. Ladies in Black: It was hard to put this above infinity war but this is such a gem of a film that hearkens back to a more innocent time in Australia. The cinematics are amazing and the story is original and realistic. The acting is first class and it's probably one of very few Australian films that don't portray us all as a bunch of idiots. As always, you get out of a movie what you bring with you and in my case, that was nostalgia ... in spades.
  2. Avengers: Infinity War: Wow. They did it. Awesome. I can only imagine the difficulty writing a coherent script with so many characters.
  3. A Quiet Place: The effect that this film had on the cinema was amazing. Everyone held their breath and most people were afraid to chew.
  4. The Meg: Okay, so this is biased but I was waiting for this film ever since I read the book back in about 1997. The movie wasn't as good as the book but it didn't disappoint.
  5. Black Panther: Very different, still a great Avengers film.
  6. Deadpool 2: As expected... better perhaps.
  7. Adrift: I wasn't sure what to expect but this film was a welcome change after all the CGI extravaganzas this year. Good story, very believable, excellent cinematography, likeable characters.
  8. Truth or Dare: More like the Ring than any of the recent "pretenders". Not a bad effort.

Notable Mentions ("Surprise" Films)

  • A Quiet Place: I'd never even heard of this film before they started talking about it maybe beating Ready Player One. So I went to the cinemas to see it knowing nothing about it. Turned out to be a very good film.
  • Adrift: I hadn't read anything about the film or seen any trailers. I knew it was about a couple on a boat and I was thinking maybe it was going to be like Dead Calm or like Open Water: Adrift. I kept expecting sharks. It kept me engaged to the end.
  • I Feel Pretty: I was expecting a run of the mill Amy Schumer style comedy but it had a lot of heart and was pretty funny. It also had very good characters.
  • Truth or Dare: Another film that I went into not knowing anything about -- so yes, it was a surprise.
  • Mission Impossible: Fallout: The surprise here was that it was a pretty good film that managed to keep me on the edge of my seat.
  • Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: I was very "meh" about this film. As a result, it's the first JP film that I didn't see at the cinemas. Funnily enough though, it's arguably better than the all but the very first film.
  • Christmas Chronicles: Kurt Russell as Santa turned out to be a whole lot of fun.

The Biggest Disappointments

  • Maze Runner: The Death Cure - After the awful second film, I was really hoping that this would bring the franchise back on track. It's not a cure for anything.
  • Pacific Rim Uprising
  • Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
