Love this! I might not know most of the films.....but following with interest so I know which films I should consider seeing.

However, even though I haven't seen it, and simply because of my love of all things Queen, I vote Bohemian Rhapsody for
#1 Best Film
#2 Best performance from an actor
#3 Best performance from an actress (no idea if there is a female in the film)
#4 Best use of visual effects (Really???)
#5 Breakthrough actor
#6 Breakthrough actress (see #3)
#7 Positive surprise film (No surprise there lol!)

Loved Mary Queen of Scotts....but don't think it is up for any awards, which is a pity.

Rainbows
Jane

So many bad ones it's hard to pick just one.

Solo
Maze runner
Fifty shades
Oceans 8


Breakout star is Elsie Fisher.
She was fantastic in eighth grade.

Best movie for me was avengers.
Mostly because I enjoyed it more than any other movie last year.

Positive surprise was incredibles 2.
I figured they would sjw it.

Biggest disappointment was black panther.
The plot was lion king with superheroes.

I haven't seen a lot either, and don't follow the awards shows at all.
But I have seen Bohemian Rhapsody, and like you, love me some Queen.

I loved it and highly recommend it. It's on Amazon now, if you have prime you can rent it. That's how I watched it, as I don't get to theatres very often.

Sounds good, we could have members make films and we can rate them and have awards. We have a few people here who get into making films that could help us learn how to do that. We might even attract some real talented people to the site that way. I want to be one of those super stupid critics that gets everything wrong, saying good movies are bad. I always go see the movies that the prestigious critics say are bad, they usually are pretty entertaining. If the critics say they are great, they are usually overdramatic and boring. I kind of like amateur low budget films.

The best film for me of 2018 goes to the Avengers Infinty war. Kind of an obvious choice but for me it was a perfect mix of humour, action and story development.

The worst film for me goes to. Rampage. I wateched this film in the cinema and for me personally it just felt very hard to get into and the story didn’t do anything for me. It felt like a film released just to fill a period before the summer blockbusters.

Best performance by an actor for me is Christian Bale in Vice. He’s a very talented actor as we all know. But for me to go through the extreme body transitions to get to the correct size speaks for itself.

Best performance by an actress. This award goes to Olivia Coleman for her portrayal of Queen Ann in the favourite. Her performance throughout her career have been extremely good. But for me she has really stepped it up.

Worst performance by an actor. David Spade in farther of the year. For me it’s just a repeat/copy of so many previous films and roles.

Worst performance by an actress for me goes to Margot Robbie in terminal. She’s a very talented actress who in my opinion can pull off many different roles. But not this performance. It just felt the material was written with a completely different actress in mind.

The beat use of CGI/Visual effects goes to The Avengers Infinity war. No surprises really.....

The worst use of CGI/Visual effects goes to the Rampage. George eating a human anyone??

The breakthrough actor award goes to John David Washington. A really good performance as Ron Stallworth. I really liked his performance in ballers and I’m sure he will have many more top roles to come.

The breakthrough actress award goes to Zazie Beets for her performance in Deadpool 2. Definitely a bright future ahead.

Positive surprise film. Ready Player One. I really had my doubts about this film. I couldn’t get into the book. But thought I would go to the cinema and give it a try. And you know what. I’m glad I did. Brilliant film.

Personal let down award goes to. Venom. I enjoyed this film but not as much as I thought I would. It was let down in a lot of places. Including the car chase scene.
