We are more than halfway through 2018, and a wide range of stellar movies have come up to awe moviegoers around the world. From blockbusters to arthouse films that are awards season favorites, and independent gems that flew under the radar of the even most fanatical movie buff, we uncover and list down the best films that have released so far this year. Many of them have been made available for online viewing, so if you watch movies online, then you may be in luck.
- Avengers: Infinity War
The third film in the Avengers saga opened to huge expectations, and it did not let down. Surreally entertaining with a slew of well-defined characters and an engrossing storyline, Infinity War was a resounding success at the box office and with critics.
- Black Panther
Another Marvel film to make the list, Black Panther underscored weighty themes that have great social relevance in today’s world. The movie also had some great production design and captivating performances. A distinct cast of African American characters produced an epic with mass appeal.
- A Quiet Place
A film that basically gave a new spin to the horror genre, A Quite Place was a refreshing entry for horror movie fans. Its toned-down approach and reliance on editing and sound effects to build atmospheric tension was well received by audiences and it ended up being a huge hit at the box office.
- Darkest Hour
A biopic on Winston Churchill will be expected to deliver a true-to-life representation of the character, and the Darkest Hour did not disappoint. A rousing film set during the time of his wartime greatness, with Gary Oldman delivering an Oscar worthy performance was enough to make this movie one of the best of 2018.
This film was a hugely entertaining comedy with a simple premise – three sets of parents trying frantically to stop their children from committing rather dubious acts on prom night. While it may not win any Oscars, it will certainly go down as one of the funniest films of 2018.
So, these are some of the best films with mass appeal that was released this year. With a few more months left before the year ends, we can certainly hope for more than a few good releases that satiate moviegoers. If you watch movies online, there are many streaming services that offer films to watch.
