Director Steven Spielberg’s newest movie brings author Ernest Cline’s beloved book to life, visually bringing to life the incredible virtual world of OASIS.
In a world where so many sci-fi/fantasy movies are rehashes and reboots of older material, it is rather unusual to see something that feels fresh and new. This movie became the eighth top-grossing movie of 2018 worldwide and generally received positive reviews from the audiences.

This movie is funny, action-packed, and very entertaining. It absolutely blows the previous Ant-Man film out of the water. The film is also full of heart too which makes this a pretty decent movie to watch with the whole family. It’s a fun movie with quite a few laughs and a great callback to a successful gag in the first movie.

Deadpool 2 is an American superhero movie that grossed worldwide $734.2 million. This movie is a direct sequel to 2016’s movie Deadpool and the eleventh installment in the X-Men movie series. Deadpool 2 is a satisfying sequel. Instead of simply riding the coat-tail of the first movie, the writers have come up with an engaging new story to tell. Reassuringly, this sequel is not a carbon copy of the first either.
The writers have not become lazy; the jokes are still funny, and the pop culture references are effective. Deadpool 2 is as good as the first movie: good action, good comedy, and good twists. 2018 has so far been an impressive year for the superhero genre and Deadpool 2 continues that winning streak. This movie becomes the sixth Hollywood highest-grossing movie of 2018 and third highest-grossing X-Men movie and the third highest-grossing R-Rated movie. Thus, I would give Deadpool 2 my “highly recommended” stamp of approval.

Mission: Impossible- Fallout is an American spy movie that grossed worldwide $791.1 million. This movie is the second movie to be directed by McQuarrie following Mission: Impossible- Rogue Nation and the sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible movie series. This movie finds the perfect balance between spectacle and narrative. Firstly, the action scenes never distract from the plot, they are essential for the plot to continue moving forward. Secondly, McQuarrie’s screenplay is excellent. It is smart, well-constructed, and entertaining.
Fallout is the most sophisticated action movie I have seen in a long time. This movie for its action alone makes it a series that can’t be missed on the big screen. This movie is one of my favorite action movies and the fifth Hollywood highest-grossing movie of 2018 and one of the greatest action movies of all time. What did you think of Mission: Impossible-Fallout? What’s your favorite stunt Tom Cruise has ever done? – comment below.

Following the events of 2016´s ‘Captain America Civil War”, where the title character was first introduced, we see T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman reprising his role here) returning to Wakanda and embracing his duties as the new king of the secretive and technologically advanced nation. “Black Panther” is a great movie with solid acting that continues to help to expand the branches of the MCU. I would give the Black Panther my “highly recommended” stamp of approval.

It is based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers. It is the nineteenth movie in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and is the sequel to 2012’s The Avengers and 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Thanos’s quest for the Infinity Stones and his goal for universal balances reach a climatic pivotal point, calling upon the Avengers, the Guardians, and others to stand united and to prevent the Mad Titan’s master plan in the movie Avengers: Infinity War.
Great heroic scenes, an edge-of-the-seat storyline, and all the heroes treated with the respect they deserve, all getting a great amount of screentime. I highly recommend this film to anyone, as it is a great movie that genuinely ticks all the boxes. I really do want to hear from everyone on their thoughts on Avengers: Infinity War.
