Who has the time and money to watch every single movie in the theaters these days? Between the comic book movies like Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Venom, coming out almost every month, and the regular old blockbusters, there’s just no time for something fresh and new. Each year dozens of astonishing movies are being overlooked and it’s pretty sad.
But don’t worry, you can still catch some of the movies from my list in your theater, or at least buy them on DVD. These are 7 underappreciated movies of 2018 you’ve probably already missed.
Anyone who loves a good black comedy should watch Thoroughbreds. In a nutshell, it’s about two friends Lily and Amanda. Lily feels everything, while Amanda feels absolutely nothing, so what’s going to happen when they plan to kill Lily’s tyrannical stepdad? Shenanigans!
The Endless has the elements of sci-fi, horror, and thriller with a good dose of mystery. If a movie with 100% positive “Certified Fresh” rating is not worthy to be on a list like this, I don’t know what is. Some say, The Endless is like Edge of Tomorrow mixed with Annihilation and some 10 Cloverfield Lane. All the good stuff.
Alright, who’s up for some good old-fashioned neo-noir thriller? When the critics call your movie “a piece of clean, confident visual storytelling”, you go out there and celebrate the success! Unless, of course, no-one wants to watch your movies. Look, it’s got all the ingredients of a great detective movie and you shouldn’t have missed it, so at least give it a shot on DVD!
