    Movies from 2018 worth watching - A retrospective

    an overview (incl. short comments) of movies from 2018 imo worth watching (may include earlier movies, whose scene bdrips/dvdrips/blurays got released in 2018) - afaik this is 'as good as it gets' this year



    action:

    Den of Thieves (2018) 'heat meets the usual suspects' wannabe, decent action


    adventure:
    -

    animated:

    Coco (2017) watch it for the top-notch animation, not the weak story
    The Breadwinner (2017) decent middle-eastern themed story combining the current and the mythical in 2D animation


    comedy:
    -

    drama:

    Only the Brave (2017) above average firefighter team adventures with a dash of the horse whisperess and flaming bears
    Wonder (2017) somewhat stretched but watchable drama about a boy with facial deformities, or in pc parlance: 'differences'


    fantasy:

    Avengers: Infinity War (2018) watch it for the effects, not the poor storytelling
    Thor: Ragnarok (2017) watchable/enjoyable, but missed the genre with too many bad jokes and trashy side-plots


    fighting:
    -

    horror:

    Ghostland aka Incident in a Ghostland (2018) nasty psychologically taxing horror

    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...

    This list gets thinner every year

    I didn't know a Blu-Ray of 2001 was out. I've been meaning to rewatch it for years now, so this is a good opportunity.

    i don't think there were any BluRays back in 2001. I suppose these are HD transfers from original master tapes/ reels of 2001. Same ones they use for 4K restoration.

    I meant 2001 the movie (A Space Odyssey), not the year 2001

    As far as I know, if a movie was filmed in 35mm film and the source material is well-preserved, then it is more than good enough to make Blu-Rays, 4K and whatever comes next without upscaling.

    I liked Creed 2, Searching, Venom, A Quiet Place, Sicario: Day of the Soldado, A Star Is Born, Black Panther, Summer of 84, The Clovehitch Killer. But tv shows are so much better than movies nowdays :)
