Best/Worst Movies of 2018

Film flames, episode episodes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

Never Goin' Back has its moments and I like the two leads, but the movie is dumb as hell. Stupid people doing stupid things... No character arcs, no moral to the story, no point to the movie; just a bunch of things that happen. To be honest, I'm kinda surprised A24 picked it up.

BlacKkKlansman was drymounting great. Fun all the way through even if the plot is a little uneven. Has a strong ending.

Last couple weeks I have watched 8th Grade, Sorry to Bother You and Blindspotting which were all great IMO.

Oscars are drymounted... Changing everything to try and make more people care about them. Sacrificing integrity for popularity. So stupid...

Might not be a Rotten Oscars next year... Not sure yet. Have to think on it.

Didn't the Oscars originally start out with two best pictures? One for an artistic movie and one for action?

That or Ragnarok should win one for costume design, not because of popularity.

Meh, the Oscars were always fundamentally stupid, at least it'd make betting/Rotten Oscars more interesting.

False. Paddington 2 should win it all. Clean drymounting sweep!
