Cinema76's Favorite Movies of 2018

Cinema76's Favorite Movies of 2018

Much of our regular staff submitted end of year lists for their 8-15 favorite films of 2018. Over our 9 lists, we celebrated 49 films from 201, which I believe shows the breadth and depth of film in 2018.

Even among our diverse lists, there were a few films that connected across all of our staff. Here are our top six films, with the number of lists they appeared on (ties listed alphabetically):

  1. Annihilation (6)

  2. First Reformed (5)

  3. You Were Never Really Here (5)

  4. Mission: Impossible - Fallout (4)

Nine other films that appeared on multiple lists: Eighth Grade, The Favourite, Leave No Trace, Paddington 2, Damsel, A Quiet Place, Revenge, Blindspotting, Mandy, Hereditary, Widows, Upgrade, Roma, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Suspiria, and Vox Lux

Here’s how to find the Top Ten lists for all of our staff:
