Tim Nasson’s Top 10 Movies of 2018

January 8, 2019

It’s official. Green Book, Roma and Bohemian Rhapsody, are my three favorite movies of 2018. And all three were recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards as the two best movies of 2018. Bohemian Rhapsody (Best Drama), Green Book (Best Comedy or Musical). Roma was not eligible for a Best Picture nod, because it is a foreign film. It won the Best Foreign Film Golden Globe award.

Five movies in my Top 10 Best Movies of 2018 earned over $100 million at the domestic movie box office, proving that box office success and quality can go hand-in-hand.

Unfortunately, the absolute best movie of 2018, Apostasy, could not be considered for my Top 10 Best Movies of 2018 list, (or any other U.S. movie critic’s Top 10 Best List), because the film did not receive a theatrical release in the United States. Not giving the film an Oscar qualifying theatrical release is the biggest mistakes that the very indie studio, Gravitas, has ever made. The film is currently nominated for a BAFTA, (the British Oscars equivalent).

The highest grossing movie of 2018 at the U.S. box office is Black Panther. However, the highest grossing movie of 2018, worldwide, is Avengers: Infinity War. Black Panther took in $700 million in the U.S., but only $1,346,913,161, worldwide, including in the U.S.

Avengers: Infinity War, on the other hand, earned $678 million in the United States, but over $2 billion, worldwde, including in the United States. Neither of those films are on Tim Nasson’s Top 10 Movies of 2018.
