I’m just a guy who love film, and this year was a landmark one for me in terms of entertainment. In addition to the absolutely absurd amount of pro wrestling I watch on a weekly basis, TV undertakings (including new seasons of The Americans, Better Call Saul, Westworld, Ozark, Daredevil, House of Cards, The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead and several others), battle rap and children’s programming I’m forced to endure, I made it my mission to see as many films from 2018 as possible. Thanks to half a year of MoviePass, I realized over the summer that my goal of 100 films in the theater was actually attainable (and I’m glad to say I did reach that milestone, hitting my 100th sitting a few days after Christmas), and watched an incredible amount at home thanks to Netflix, Prime, Hulu, HBO and other services. Keep in mind, for anyone who watched my Film of the Day posts for months (which started before I began writing for this site), I also managed to cross a LOT of titles off my list that had slipped past me in previous years. In fact, there are honestly too many to name and would require a separate post to truly encapsulate how many gems from the past I caught up on in 2018.

All that aside, here is an alphabetical list of all 2018 releases I saw with an asterisk to denote anything I saw in the theater. As with any year, some of these may be questionable due to festival plays vs official US “release dates,” so keep that in mind before commenting angrily at me for trying to inflate my stats. Additionally, some of my theater trips won’t show up on this list as they were for 2017 films that I saw early in the year (Dunkirk, Phantom Thread, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) or older films returning to theaters for various reasons (There Will Be Blood, Last of the Mohicans, Cowboy Bebop: Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door, Life of Brian and a few others). I will update this as I see them in the future. On with the list!
