Well, I guess it’s finally that time!
It’s time for me to finally post my picks for the best (and worst) of 2018. This is something that I do every year. Usually, I manage to do it before the third week of January but I’ve been running behind. I’ll be posting my film, television, book, and music picks throughout today and maybe into tomorrow, depending on how long it takes me to narrow down my choices.
Let’s start with my picks for the 10 worst films of 2018! Now, I have to admit that 2018 was not really a big year for bad films. It wasn’t really a big year for good films, either. 2018 was just kind of a middle-of-the-road year altogether. Below are my picks for the worst. Some of you will agree and some will disagree. In the end, what truly matters is that I’m right.
10. Holmes & Wason
7. Vice — I’m fully aware that this film is being hailed by some as the best of the year. I found it to be painfully smug and overlong. It was like watching The Big Short have roid rage.
5. 6 Balloons — Drug addicts are so tedious to watch.
4. Red Sparrow — I’m really starting to worry about Jennifer Lawrence. She’s still a good actress but she seems to spend more time coming up with embarrassing late night talk show anecdotes than actually finding good scripts.
2. The Happytime Murders — Oh my God, did you know muppets could curse and fuck!? My mind is blown!
And finally, the worst film of 2018 is ….
1. Life Itself
Life Itself is basically what This Is Us is going to turn into by the time it gets around to its sixth season.
So, those are my picks for the worst films of 2018. You may agree. You may disagree. I love you either way.
