Film Fight 2018: July

A huge month, from Hollywood blockbusters and sequels, to some Netflix Originals. Ten films in total…

Sicario 2: Soldado

Tau

Tag

How It Ends

Hotel Artemis

The First Purge

The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter

Mission Impossible: Fallout

Calibre

Extinction

The July Winner

There were a lot of films this month that were worth seeing, but not many that were really good. I think the winner this month is Calibre, a low-budget, psychological horror that ends up being pretty damn good.

Film Fight 2018: June

A super-quiet month with only three films viewed.

Life of the Party

Cargo

Super Troopers 2

The July Winner

Easily and deservedly the winner, Cargo manages to largely deliver on its premise and surprise in interesting ways. Very worth seeing.

Film Fight 2018: May

The quietest month in a while, with only 6 films in the fight for May.

Kodachrome

Avengers: Infinity War

Pickpockets

Axis

Deadpool 2

Solo: A Star Wars Story

The May Winner

Honestly, there are plenty of decent movies this month. I didn’t dislike any of them… but I don’t love any of them either. The strongest film, I think, is Kodachrome: a solid cast, doing something a little bit smaller scale than most of the others, in a way that the writing and acting gets to shine through.

Film Fight 2018: April

Another fairly busy month, with 10 films in the fight.

Proud Mary

A Quiet Place

Do You Trust This Computer?

Ghost Stories

6 Balloons

Roxanne Roxanne

Isle of Dogs

Thoroughbreds

Sun Dogs

Come Sunday

The April Winner

Despite some strong choices this month, the winnner was easy for me: A Quiet Place is so well-executed on every front that nothing else was going to do it.

Film Fight 2018: March

Okay, this is probably the biggest Film Fight to date, with a huge 14 films!

I, Tonya

Ravenous

Red Sparrow

Game Night

You Were Never Really Here

The Outsider

Mom and Dad

Annihilation

Pacific Rim: Uprising

Ready Player One

Game Over, Man!

First Match

Blockers

Happy Anniversary

The March Winner

Despite a couple of clunkers, there’s a tonne of great films here, so it’s hard to pick a winner. First Match was really close to winning, but I think I, Tonya edges it for the excellent direction, odd framing (that works), and fantastic lead performances.
