It’s unlikely we’ll make it to 150 for 2018 any time soon but we made it back to 125 again at MHT. That’s a decent amount of films to see in a year, right? While there was only one 5 star film amongst the 25 (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), not one film of the last 25 scored less than “Thumbs Eh” which is a first since launching Movie Hot Take. Don’t believe me? Look back at the last 100 movies reviewed, you’ll see!

The “Thumbs Up” Group
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (5 / 5) REVIEW
The best animated film of 2018. The best comic inspired film of 2018. The best Spider-Man film ever? Yup!
The Favourite (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
Bohemian Rhapsody (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
Creed II (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
Ralph Breaks the Internet (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
Pick of the Litter (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
Vice (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
Green Book (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
Mid90s (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
A Star Is Born (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
What They Had (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
The Hate U Give (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
The Mule (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
Beautiful Boy (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
The House With A Clock In Its Walls (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
Even if I’m being too generous with the final few films in this group, this is still a really solid group of films to hit theaters around the same period of time. Sure, it has a lot to do with Oscar season but that’s not always the case when it comes to the way films are released.
A quartet of excellent films not quite good enough to make any real noise when it comes to Awards.
Widows (3 / 5) REVIEW
Probably the most disappointing film of the 25 considering the high expectations around this film.
The “Thumbs Eh” Group
All 5 of these films weren’t good enough, in my opinion, to make it above mediocre but I’m sure you could find someone out there who loved every one of these films. That’s how good this group of 25 was.
