Funeratic members voted these movies to be the best of 2018. Voters included Evie Totty, Matthew Preston, and Scott Hardie. A breakdown of each ballot appears at the bottom.


1: Avengers: Infinity War

23 points | 3 votes | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"IT WAS AMAZING! This is a fantastic culmination (1/2 anyway) of the past ten years. The screenplay was EXCELLENT." -Evie Totty (#1 pick)

"There was never a confusing moment on who was doing what, where, and when. Seriously ambitious writing that gives the audience just the right amount of each genre." -Matthew Preston (#1 pick)

"Since Infinity War hit Netflix a week ago, I've watched it four times. I'm more certain than ever that it's not just Marvel's best movie to date, but it's just an excellent movie period, without qualifiers around its genre or brand." -Scott Hardie (#1 pick)



2: Black Panther

13 points | 2 votes | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"This movie was visually stunning. Just. Stunning. My mind is going so fast I don't know if I can get everything down that I'm thinking. From the tech to the ideology to the villain... this movie was a joy to watch." -Evie Totty

"What a beautiful and vibrant sense of design, from the costumes to the sets to the CGI dreamscapes, drawing upon different African tribal traditions. There's also a terrific villain, one of Marvel's best, who is almost as sympathetic as the hero." -Scott Hardie



3: Ready Player One

10 points | 2 votes | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"It captures the spirit of the book and Spielberg makes it epic. The movie broadens the range of appeal to make it more palpable for all audiences." -Matthew Preston

"The race sequence was absolutely fantastic, another masterpiece of action cinematography from Steven Spielberg. The sequence adapted from a particular horror movie was a treat, since I'm a big fan of that film. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this." -Scott Hardie

"I don't have an urgent need to run out and see this film again, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. As a child of the 80s I was definitely singing along and as a fan of Stephen King - I was stoked to know what was going on during that part." -Evie Totty



4: Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

9 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"I LOVED this movie! One of the best movies of the year and arguably the best Spider-Man movie ever made." -Evie Totty



4: Isle of Dogs

9 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"I loved the rich attention to detail, the perfectly-delivered deadpan humor, and the adorability of the dogs. The whole movie is adorable, to be honest." -Scott Hardie



6: Deadpool 2

7 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"It kept finding new ways to surprise me that I didn't expect. Superhero movies don't do that very often any more." -Scott Hardie

"Gosh, it was really good! I definitely want to see more from Domino - she is a badass!" -Evie Totty



6: A Quiet Place

7 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"It wasn't really a horror story as much as it was a thriller. Many times I found myself holding my breath and tensing up. A sign of great immersion!" -Evie Totty

"Excellent." -Samir Mehta



8: The House with a Clock in Its Walls

6 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"It's fun! The movie strikes a pretty good balance of humor, mystery, action, and pathos. I would change very little about it." -Scott Hardie



8: Widows

6 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"Director Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave) has done it again. Viola Davis is a gem! Love her to pieces." -Evie Totty



10: Venom

5 points | 1 vote | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"I loved this movie so much - I saw it 3 times. And of course the Eminem song is going through my head right now from the credits." -Evie Totty

"I'm all for a movie that doesn't utterly waste Venom the way that the disappointing Spider-Man 3 did." -Scott Hardie



Honorable Mention: Ant-Man and the Wasp

3 points | 2 votes | read reviews | watch it on Netflix

"Ooooohhhhhh snap." -Matthew Preston

"I loved the humor throughout the movie, easily its best quality. The Marvel factory has become so good at producing quality entertainment that even their underdeveloped minor releases like this are still loads of fun." -Scott Hardie
