2018 YEAR IN REVIEW

TV, VUDU

BLAST FROM THE (RECENT) PAST

 

 

2018 brought us singing skeletons, hulked-out heroes, jungles, justice, murder, and more.

 

As part of our end of the year festivities, we’ve compiled the best and brightest of this year’s big (and small) screen gems in our definitive 2018 Year In Review collection here. Check out some of the highlights below.

 

BEST SELLERS

 

 

From the genetically-engineered jump-scares of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to Deadpool 2‘s bloody good time, these are the can’t-miss crowd-pleasers that everyone’s been talking about all year long.

 

If you missed out on Thor, Thanos, or Themyscira, now’s the time to brush up.

 

VUDU FAVORITES

 

 

We at Vudu HQ personally recommend these newfound treasures, like Miyazaki-esque whirlwind romance Your Name, moving Mr. Rogers doc Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, and charming high school underdog story Love, Simon.

 

We’re glad we checked them out, and we think you will be too.

 

CRITICAL FAVORITES YOU MAY HAVE MISSED

 

 

Looking for something with a pedigree?

 

Acclaimed cinematic showstoppers like Leave No Trace, Lady Bird, and Eighth Grade will have you seeing what all the hype is about come award season.

 

TOP TELEVISION

 

 

You definitely don’t want to sleep on this year’s TV.

 

Between The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Rick and Morty, and more, there’s never been a better time to curl up, hunker down, and binge some mind-blowing full seasons.

 

 

NEW THIS WEEK: THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS, THE PREDATOR

FEAR ITSELF

 

Whether you’re an adult thrill-seeker looking for alien adventure or just want some spooky fun for family movie night, this week’s new releases have you covered.

 

 

Mix magic, mayhem, and creepy fun, and you’ll end up with the perfect potion for a scary good time.

 

The House With a Clock in Its Walls, veteran horror director Eli Roth’s first foray into family fun, is a wild ride full of spells, spectres, and secrets that movie fans young and old can enjoy. Can a wily warlock (Jack Black) and his newly magical nephew uncover the meaning behind their house’s ticking heart? Finding out is guaranteed fun.

 

 

The hunt is never truly over. If you thought The Predator was scary before, wait until you see it souped-up, super-powered, and genetically enhanced for 2018. It’s going to take the world’s greatest scientists, military assassins, and a child prodigy or two to take it down, and even that may not be enough.

 

Bummed you weren’t picked for our Predator Conan Funko Pop! Giveaway? Real hunters never say die, so come back tomorrow for another dangerous game…
