Best Movies of 2018

2018 is gearing up to be a massive year at the movies. With new instalments coming from the 'Star Wars', 'Jurassic Park', 'Mission: Impossible', 'Predator', 'Halloween', 'Fantastic Beasts', 'Rocky', and 'Transformers' franchises (on top of a whopping TEN superhero movies) we might have some crazy-high box office returns coming our way. Unfortunately, with 2017's earnings being what they were, we might also see some major box office flops and bombs turning 2018 into another underachieving year for studios. Of course, for those of us who don't care for all the blockbuster mayhem, there will likely be plenty of smaller-budgeted, story-driven films worth watching, I'm sure. This list is (hopefully) filled with titles that satisfy fans of both. Here you'll find a list that has compiled and ranked the biggest cinematic crowd-pleasers of 2018. It's a good year to be a movie lover.

The Top Ten

1 Avengers: Infinity War

I adore this movie. Despite the ending being a bit abrupt (like all episode endings of Degrassi: Next Class, seriously the most abrupt episode endings ever), it was insanely action-packed, the visuals were excellent, it was really funny, and the characters were amazing. I've only really seen Marvel movies as early as Captain America: Civil War and the ones I've seen were awesome. Despite even 2017 being a crummy year, Marvel was probably the best thing about 2017. Their movies just keep getting better. - PhoenixAura81

This movie blew me away. I was on the edge of my seat, barely paying attention to my popcorn and drink and candy. It made me tense, and I haven't cried this hard since the last few movies. Five minutes in and I was already an emotional train wreck. It had everything I'd expect and things I hadn't even braced for. The emotion and the action is what really got me in this movie. From the depth of the characters and how drastically they've developed and changed over the MCU to the spoiler alert: THE ENDING. Ever since I've been mourning, and I can't wait for the fourth. I had to say goodbye to my favorites though (sobs)

It does not get better than this! I went to see this with a bunch of friends and it is by far the longest marvel movie but it was well worth the sit. All the marvel characters so far are together, and they prove a challenge for thanks. And even though all the un official members of the avengers are vaporized, we know they will be back and at thanos once again. These characters are indestructible!

2 Incredibles 2 Incredibles 2

The original Incredibles movie is probably the movie I've watched the most in my life. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I've seen it beginning-to-end close to 30 times. It's a very nostalgic film from my childhood that I hold with the utmost respect as an adult. To this day, it remains one of my all time favorites. Watching the second installment took me back to when I was a kid and gave me everything I wanted in an Incredibles sequel. The characters are all the same lovable, complex individuals that we've known for the past 14 years and each actor gives an astounding vocal performance. The fluid animation and action sequences are equally breathtaking and exhilarating. The screenplay is sharp, clever, and does not pander to a younger audience whatsoever. The characters talk like they did in the original with well-written dialogue that will most likely fly over kids heads. And while the plot is a tad predictable at times, I'm perfectly fine with it because Brad Bird's execution is ...more - phillysports

Look on the bright side: at least Jake Paul and Amy Schumer aren't in The Incredibles 2.

It may been about 14 years since Disney and Pixar animated computer animated thriller about a dysfunctional family of superheroes working together to defeat the bad guys. That was so 2004. In reality, the world is still in a crisis. Don't set your hopes too high to expect the Avengers to fight against criminals and thugs. They're not real. Sorry to say it, fanboys and fangirls.

Director Brad Bird is back again with another Incredibles film. So far, this is one of the best animated movies I have ever seen.

Voice acting of The Incredibles 2 is what make the characters come to life. Craig T. Nelson kept up with the humorous attitude as Bob Parr. I couldn't help but laugh and laugh at how funny things are when things go haywire. Samuel L. Jackson does great collaboration as Mr. Incredible's friend as Frozone. His hilarious attitude helps keep up the sequel's integrity. And what ...more

Like the top-voted comment on the list of the best games of 2017 for Super Mario Odyssey stated: stop complaining that it's not out yet! Once it is out, the comments are going to be littered with people complaining that it's not out, making the section feel dated and inadequate. Once the movie comes out, THEN we'll decide if it should be placed higher or lower. - MasonOcker

3 Black Panther

It was good, but way overhyped, as I thought it had very, very basic elements. Still though some parts were pretty cool. But seriously that "What are those?! " joke in the movie nearly ruined it! - Phillip873

My review just came out, so I have more thought there. And the comments are right by calling this overrated since it was merely good and little more than that. Your basic superhero movie, but there is some nice political stuff in there too. 7/10 - DCfnaf

Fine movie but definitely already the most overrated movie of the year. The best review movie on rotten tomatoes? Give me a break 7.5/10 - TopTenListmaker

Ui love deeom

4 Ready Player One

Not the most perfect Steven Spielberg movie with lots of pop culture references, but it's still great. It's overstuffed with stunning special effects and includes a few good laughs. So what's the moral? Stop playing with video games and move on with the real world. Enough of what I said, it's still great. Simply a fun film to enjoy in theaters.

The people who saw the first screening say it was good. But honestly, if Spielberg didn't direct this, it would probably suck. - 445956

I read the book but the marketing for this movie is pretty bad. Hope it's good! - TopTenListmaker

Seeing Tracer from Overwatch in the movie, was amazing! It may have been only for a few seconds at a time, it was great!

5 Deadpool 2

I really like the first Deadpool movie that came out in 2016. I thought it was a fun movie with likable characters and a lot of charm and humor. The sequel improves upon it in every way. The story is much better in the fact that it's not just about Deadpool going on a mission to kill one person. It actually has a lot of unpredictable twists and turns and they add a lot more depth to Deadpool's character. Every new character they add is just great and the acting in the film is great overall. The movie is just a phenomenal parody of superhero movies and sequels, and it succeeds in every thing it sets out to do. This might eventually become one of my favorite comedies ever. - phillysports

Its as great and enjoyable like the first one - Dvafan2

Love deadpool 2 needs to be higher

The Deadpool series way better than the MCU combined

6 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

When I was in Maine with my grandmother. I did see this with her on June 29th 2018 and She says it's better then the first Jurassic world that came out in 2015. She was like 50something when she saw Jurassic park. And I'm only 12 (for whoever is reading this in July of 2018) and I still love the Jurassic park movies. Also I did see this movie when it came out with my Dad

This should be Number 1 or 2 because I was once listening to the radio on kiss 108 and a guy said Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom is going to be the biggest movie of the summer in fact those of you that are reading this before June 22nd the movie is only 2 weeks away

Worse than Jurassic Park 3, how is this even in the list? Do people here watch anything that isn't super hero movies or big blockbuster movies like this one? - Ale99

Just saw it today, it was pretty great and not overrated - B1ueNew

7 A Quiet Place

Incredibles 2 and Avengers aren't even out and somehow both rule the list. This movie should be in the top 10 (until now of course). The movie had great narrative, all characters and performances are fantastic, the plot and the idea overall are very interesting, the score is good, the tension is built so well, the direction is actually great and it's something new. This movie should receive more attention because it's actually damn good 8/10. - Ale99

Finally, a horror movie that doesn't need graphic violence, sex and cursing to carry it through! This film was absolutely incredible and parents, if you have younger teens who like scary stuff, this movie is perfect to bring them to! - Solarian

I absolutely loved this film. I have to admit I'm very easily spooked and more than a little squeamish so I usually stay well clear of watching Horror films. But like everyone I also have a natural fascination with the thrill I get from feeling a little scared from time to time. For me 'A Quiet Place' did that just perfectly, gradually increasing the tension and scary bits to a brilliant climax without the need for gore, graphic violence or terrifying spooky imagery. The monsters, when they came, reminded me of a cross between the 'Ursa' from 'After Earth' and the 'Future Predators' from 'Primeval' which was one of my favourite British Sci-fi T.V. shows when I was growing up. I thought it was a well written story, brilliantly acted by everyone (including the girl and boy who played the teenage Sister and Brother) and was less a horror movie and more like a very good Sci-fi film.

The only thing is, now I'm hooked on the characters, I hope they make a sequel as I want them to ...more - PoppyParker

Great movie. It's thrilling. 9/10. Watch it now!

8 Ant-Man and the Wasp Ant-Man and the Wasp

The Marvel cash-grab train continues to chug. Even to people who like Marvel, you have to admit that ANT MAN did not deserve a theatrical sequel. You can like the movie all you want and I won't judge you. Just understand that this movie wasn't made because the filmmakers had an interesting story that needed to be told or that they needed to strengthen the "Ant Man lore". It's just pointless filler that will most likely never connect with the other movies in the MCU. This movie was made with the single purpose of putting more money into Marvel Studios executives' pockets. - phillysports

More like, Wasp does literally everything and Ant-man sucks at everything, accomplishes nothing, embarasses himself, (because his suit is broken) and has to go back to his house every couple of days because he is on house arrest, makes enemies, almost dies and Wasp risks her life saving him, has no tragic backstory like Wasp does... honestly, it should have just been a movie about Wasp - TheInsomniac

Will probably be great and it's a marvel movie so I'm not worried - Dvafan2

9 Isle of Dogs

Not Only Is This The Best Movie Of 2018, BUT IT'S THE BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME. The Characters Are Likeable (Example; Rex), The Animation Is Awesome, The Voice Acting Is Groundbreaking, And It Has A Unique Plot. Darn, This Really Needs A Sequel.

It's a good movie but it's NOT EVEN CLOSE to the best movie of all-time. - MemeTheKeem

Pretty much the best movie ever, uncontested. - s0ramble

Wes Anderson. What else do I need to say?

10 Mission: Impossible - Fallout Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Didn't disappoint me one bit! It's longer than any of the previous M:I movies, but I also think it's better than at least three of the previous ones. Great action, and the helicopter chase scene was incredible. 10/10. - Metarock

This movie is a bit longer but boy it was worth spending both money and time on this. Best of the franchise and one of the best action movies

Is Tom Cruise like a cyborg or something? He keeps on doing these epic action sequences like they're nothing. Definitely movie of the year. - hiphopgod

Best pure action movie in a world of overdone Superhero films!

11 Solo: A Star Wars Story

This movie probably isn't as bad as people make it out to be, but I can understand why it underperformed.

Considering how much backlash The Last Jedi received and how frustrated the fanbase had become at that point, it makes sense that they weren't optimistic enough to anticipate another Star Wars movie in May. Much of the fanbase was dissuaded by decisions made by Disney and Kathleen Kennedy, hence they decided to withdraw from Solo, which I a shame.

I've yet to see Solo, but hopefully, it's better than what most people make it out to be. - CrimsonShark

I was absolutely blown away by how good this movie was. Two words - space western (now doesn't that sound kinda neat? ) If you love Han Solo and the original trilogy, you have to give it a shot. Don't let the ratings fool you. I haven't been this excited and pleased about a new release in a long time. - Coatsy

I have hope for it still, I'm not gonna hop on the new Star Wars hate bandwagon just yet! But seriously though it could be good still. - Phillip873

13 Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2

Teaser trailer looked promising but I'm still worried. - Phillip873

Understandable, but Disney won't let us down this time. All bad sequels were Straight-to-DVD movies. - listotaku17

I watched the trailer. It looks okay, because hey, they go to the INTERNET! EVERYTHING is there in the Internet. I think it's gonna be interesting. I liked the first Wreck-It Ralph movie anyway. And Vanellope is super cute, but a bit bratty like my little sis. Looking forward to the movie!

I saw the trailer, and all I can say is I have no idea where they're supposed to be going with this concept for a 90 minute movie. - CloudInvasion

I can't honestly find anythin wrong with this movie other than the kinda forced ending. Acting is fantastic, productions is great, plot is incredible, soundtrack is phenomenal, etc. Honestly a must-watch this year - WeirdScienceGuy

It was fun movie

19 Annihilation

Great movie. Visually stunning and the soundtrack is great. It's tense and defiantly needs a second viewing as the first leaves you with theory's and questions.

This is what Science Fiction films are supposed to be; films with big themes that make you ponder existence and humanity.

Great acting, visually stunning, and one of the most mysterious ending in cinema. I recommend you to see. - psiddy42

These kind of movies comes once in a whole generation and what a surprise - kaicooper87

25 Teen Titans Go! To the Movies Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

I watched this movie the FIRST day it came out in theatres, and if you haven't watched it, you're missing out. Even if you don't like teen titans go, I recommend it to you. The movie's actually pretty emotional, but rather funny at the same time. Rotten Tomatoes rated this movie 100%, and I don't blame them. So basically Robin wants his own movie. Raven tells him the teen titans need an arch nemesis to get a movie, so Robin looks for one. The opportunity comes when Slade is trying to steal a crystal of some sort. This time, the titans fail to stop Slade, but he goes on a crime spree again, and the titans defeat him. Then "Jade Wilson," the lady who creates superhero movies, calls them in to have a teen titans movie. Raven, Cyborg, Beast Boy, and Starfire start causing trouble, witch means that there can't be a movie about the teen titans, but there can be a movie about Robin. Robin ditches the titans to have his own movie. Okie, that's all I'm saying. Watch "Teen Titans Go To The ...more

I can't believe I'm saying this but just basing off the trailer this movie doesn't seem too bad. - isaaonrtdmtr

Can't wait to watch this after seeing the trailer. Have high hopes and expectations. Loved 1 and 2 and hopefully I will fall in love with 3. Also,just a reply to CharistmaticKat (hope I spelt that right) I think we do need a third one so we don't get bored of one and two and plus,we can see what happens next. If there is so many Star Wars films,why can't there be loads of hotel Transylvania ones.
