Movies worth watching in 2018

2018 has turned out to be a decent year for Hollywood. This year we did see some huge blockbusters like Avengers Infinity War, Black Panther, Jurassic World 2, Incredibles 2, Deadpool 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp etc. With still half a year left, 2018 doesn't have big movies like Avengers to offer but still has some blockbusters to come like Mission Impossible Fallout, Venom, Fantastic Beasts 2, Aquaman etc. This is my first post on 2018 movies I liked,I will keep on adding new posts as and when I watch some good 2018 movies. Lets begin with some 2018 movies I have seen and feel are worth watching this year.

A Quiet Place:-
A Quiet Place is the best movie I have seen this year and also one of the best Horror movies I have seen in quite a few years. In this movie, in a post-apocalyptic world, a family is forced to live in silence while hiding from monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing. What works for the movie is the amazing direction by John Krasinski. The movies keeps you engaged and in the edge of your seat throughout. Last movie I remember watching with such tension is Steven Speilberg's Jaws. I remember getting tensed on hearing the slightest sound after watching this movie. Such was the immersive experience in this movie. Also what works for the movie are its characters. All actors have done a wonderful job and make sure you feel all the emotions they feel. Overall, A Quiet Place is a superb movie and after a long time has a horror movie been this good. Don't miss this.

Genre:- Drama, Horror, Thriller.
Director:- John Krasinski.
Stars:- Emily Blunt, John Krasinski.
Bore Meter:- One of the best horrors in recent years. No chance of getting bored.

Avengers: Infinity War:-
Avengers Infinity War is the grand culmination of a majority of marvel movies explored across 18 movies over the last 10 years. In this movie, The Avengers and their allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe. This is the movie Marvel Fans had been waiting for the past so many years now, and I am happy to say that it doesn't disappoint. Considering the fact that this is one of the most ambitious superhero movie ever made with countless superheros, the directors Anthony Russo, Joe Russo did a fabulous job of giving decent screen time to all these superheros and not compromising on the movie. The biggest star of the movie, with the most screen time is of course Thanos and he turns out to be pretty good. Overall, Avengers: Infinity War has all the characteristics of a blockbuster movie and can be best enjoyed with a big tub of popcorn. Watch it for the entertainment value that it provides.

Genre:- Action, Adventure.
Director:- Anthony Russo, Joe Russo.
Stars:- Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Olsen, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt.
Bore Meter:- Thoroughly entertaining blockbuster. No chance of getting bored.
My Rating:-

Black Panther:-
Black Panther is the first Marvel superhero movie of 2018 and they started the year on a good note. In this movie, T'Challa, the King of Wakanda, rises to the throne in the isolated, technologically advanced African nation, but his claim is challenged by a vengeful outsider who was a childhood victim of T'Challa's father's mistake.What works for the movie is its really good story. The way the world of Wakanda was shown was really good. This movie is an engaging watch throughout. This seems a little more serious movie than the other Marvel superhero movies. Also I enjoyed the action in this movie, especially the fight scene between Black panther and Mbaku beside the waterfall was superbly shot. Overall, Black Panther is a good superhero movie but i wish it could have given more in terms of writing and storytelling.

Genre:- Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi.
Director:- Ryan Coogler.
Stars:- Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Martin Freeman, Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke.
Bore Meter:- Good entertaining blockbuster. Won't get bored.
My Rating:-

Blockers is a good funny movie worth watching this year. In this movie, Three parents try to stop their daughters from losing their virginity on prom night. The plot of the movie is relatively simple. But what works for the movie is its several laugh out loud moments. The movie keeps you engaged and is fun from start to end. The second half of the movie does get a bit repetitive but overall the movie is pretty fun. If you are just bored, and want to watch a light funny casual movie, then Blockers is the movie for you.

Genre:- Comedy.
Director:- Kay Cannon.
Stars:- Leslie Mann, John Cena, Ike Barinholtz.
Bore Meter:- Good Fun Movie. Won't get bored.
My Rating:-

Tomb Raider:-
Tomb Raider is another movie remake of the popular video game. In this movie, Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she discovers the island where her father disappeared. This movie mainly works because of the committed performance of Alicia Vikander. She does a fabulous job playing Lara Croft, and meets with the physical and emotional demands of the role really well, showing the vulnerability of the character. Also what works for the movie is its cinematography. Some of the action sequences and locations are really beautifully shot. Overall, Tomb Raider is a good movie and is a good watch mainly because of committed performance of Alicia Vikander.

Genre:- Action, Adventure.
Director:- Roar Uthaug.
Stars:- Alicia Vikander.
Bore Meter:- Good Action Adventure. Won't get bored.
