Rating January to April 2018 Movies

Because I became busy with work, I wasn’t able to write reviews about movies I had watched since 2018 started. I summarized my spoiler-free review of them below.

  1. The Greatest Showman (10/10)
    • I get why some critics didn’t like it (try searching for the man behind the circus)
    • Superb songs and choreography (favorites: Rewrite the Stars, A Million Dreams, This Is Me, Never Enough)
    • Adorable costumes
    • Too much feels
  2. The Shape of Water (9.5/10)
    • I guess this is now my favorite romance movie
    • Beauty in uniqueness and a love that sees no boundaries
    • Loved the ending
  3. Lady Bird (9/10)
    • Effective acting
    • Relevant plot, especially for adolescents
    • My “shojo” of the year
  4. A Quiet Place (8.5/10)
    • Science on point
    • Unique idea
    • I need more thrill though
  5. Black Panther (8/10)
    • I really had high expectations, so I was a bit disappointed after watching it.
    • Too predictable
    • Dry humor
    • Favorite scene: W’Kabi and Okoye, favorite character: M’Baku
  6. Maze Runner: The Death Cure (7/10)
    • Nothing beats the first
    • But this one had a good ending, like it settled all the issues I had in the first two films
    • Disappointed with the love team
    • One unanswered question: What is it about Thomas?
  7. Jumanji (7/10)
    • Low expectations, but surprisingly, I enjoyed it
    • Funny characters
  8. Fifty Shades Freed (5/10)
    • Just completed the series for fun
    • I still don’t like controlling men
