BONUS | Movies of 2018 Reviewed… with Sequels!


Listen to Part One of our Movies of 2018 Review on:

When we weren’t pitching ridiculous sequels to older movies in 2018, we spent a lot of our time in the cinema watching new ones. From Oscar hopefuls to comic book blockbusters, surprise hits to disastrous flops, it’s been a varied year. So we thought we’d wrap things up with a little look back at all the films we saw at the cinema over the past 12 months.

Of course, we couldn’t just review these films – that would be far too easy. Instead, we challenged ourselves to the mammoth task of pitching quick-fire reviews for everything we watched in the cinema in 2018. It was an epic, arguably pointless challenge, but with much alcohol and an all-nighter, we managed to pull it off.

Here is the first half of our journey through 2018, covering the movies we saw between January and June. Full-length reviews of all of these films can be found by signing up to our Patreon, where we host a weekly bonus show that you can access by pledging as little as $2 per month. Happy listening! Oh, and massive spoiler warning throughout, obviously.
