I Jeff, noticed you were looking for help with Wordpress. Happy to discuss your requirements if you are still looking.

Avengers Infinity War should have on top of the list and I believe you can also create list of upcoming movies and can include Deadpool 2 Online in that as well.

We're now well into the second half of 2018, and so far it's been a mix of huge hits, critical smashes, and inevitably, a few disappointments. Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2,Incredibles 2, and Mission Impossible: Fallout have smashed records, and while Solo: A Star Wars Story proved to be a commercial disappointment, there's still plenty of excitement for next year's Episode IX, which is now in production.

All the big summer movies might have been released, but there's still loads to look forward to in the rest of 2018. There DC's Aquaman and the Transformers spin-off Bumblebee, plus the return of Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider's Web. The first of Sony’s Spider-Man spin-offs arrives in the shape of Venom, we'll find out if there's life in the Predator franchise, and the classic Halloween series returns just in time for, well, Halloween. Once we hit the fall, the big awards-season movies start arriving too, with films such as First Man, Widows, and If Beale Street Could Talk sure to get plenty of Oscar buzz. So here's what you can look forward to over the rest of the year...

Pixar is no stranger to success at the box office, with movies such as Toy Story 3 and Finding Dory among the most successful animated movies ever made. But even by the impressive standards elsewhere in the studio's catalogue, the record-smashing opening weekend for its latest movie Incredibles 2 (2018) Bluray 720p is an amazing result. [Update: Updated figures have come in slightly higher than the estimates cited below. According to Box Office Mojo, The Incredibles 2 made just under $182.7 million for the weekend.

Nice list with great takes, happy to see I'm not the only one underwhelmed by Deadpool 2. Also happy to see The Night Comes for Us on your list that movie is beyond badass. Definitely intend to check out American Animals and The Rider when possible.

NIN Dark Knight said...

Finally someone who agrees with me on Aquaman! I gave it a star as well over on Letterboxd, it’s baffling to read these 4 star reviews.

Mr Sneider, have you considered opening a Letterboxd account and track movies that way? Anyways, I hope you get to watch Shoplifters as I feel it's amazing.
