Hey lovelies! 2018 was an amazing year for film releases, we saw a tonne of new films from Marvel and Disney as well as a few great new Netflix original films so I thought I’d share my favourite ones with you!
Me and my fiancé are actually Unlimited card holders at Cineworld and they’ve recently emailed me to say that in 2018 we saved around £250 which is astonishing! I wrote a post about whether I thought the cards were worth it here so if you’re considering getting one you should check that out!
Let’s get into my top 10 films from last year! These are in no particular order because honestly I couldn’t decide which I loved the most!
Mary Poppins Returns
It feels like this film was in production FOREVER and I was SO excited to finally be able to see it! From watching the trailer I already knew the film would be magical but I couldn’t believe how amazing it actually was. I definitely want to go to the cinema and see this again soon, I can’t get enough of it!
My fiancé really wanted to go and see Aquaman, I wasn’t too fussed because I don’t usually enjoy DC films, they’re never in the same league as Marvel but oh. my. god. am I glad I went to see this! The cinematography was absolutely astonishing! I actually turned to my Fiancé when it ended and said ‘that was fricking amazing!’ definitely worth a watch!
A Star is Born
A Star is Born was one of those films that we didn’t get to see until it had already been out for around a month and it was SO hyped up that I was worried it wasn’t going to live up to my expectations but I had nothing to worry about! The story line was both beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time and the soundtrack was fab, it doesn’t quite beat The Greatest Showman but there are some really good songs that you’ll be singing for weeks after you’ve seen the film.
Wreck It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet
Now Wreck It Ralph 2 was probably my most anticipated film release of the whole year because of how much I adore the first movie. I’ll be honest there were a few parts of this film that did disappoint me a little but overall it was still really good! I adored the Disney Princess scene of the film, I’m just gutted I didn’t stay until after the credits.
Searching was the first film we saw as a Cineworld Unlimited screening which is basically when you get to watch the film a couple of days/weeks before it’s actual release. I didn’t know much about this film other than that it was about a girl who goes missing and that it was widely based around her Dad using social media to try to find her. The film had me gripped from the beginning and it had some amazing plot twists that I didn’t see coming at all!
The Incredibles 2
14 whole years we waited for Pixar to finally give us a sequel to The Incredibles but it was absolutely worth the wait! I loved everything about this movie from the gender role swap (which we should definitely see more of, come on it’s the 21st century), to Jack Jack’s powers! I do wish we’d got to see more of our favourite gal Edna though.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
When I found out Netflix were creating an original movie based around the ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ book I couldn’t wait for it to be released. I’d read the whole trilogy and I adored the books so I just hoped Netflix did it justice, and spoiler alert: it definitely did! It’s the perfect chick flick in my opinion which are very hard to come across these days, totally worth a watch!
Technically Coco was a 2018 release for the UK even though most places got to see it way before us at the end of 2017! Pixar are doing great with their film releases recently and I just hope they keep it up for Toy Story 4 because if they ruin that I will not be impressed! Coco was a heartwarming yet heartbreaking tale of Miguel, a young Mexican boy who ends up visiting the ‘Land of the Dead’ and has to try and make it back home. It’s a great family film which pulled on my heart strings a lot!
Last but certainly not least it’s Christopher Robin! Winnie the Pooh has been one of my favourite Disney characters for as long as I can remember so this was another film that I was super excited to see! Ewan McGregor did a great job of transporting us back into the world of the Hundred Acre Wood and Eeyore, Piglet, Tigger and Pooh Bear were as adorable as ever! The whole film was so beautiful!
Notable mentions: Creed 2, A Simple Favour, Red Sparrow, The Princess Switch, The Christmas Chronicles, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
