11 Best Movies of 2018, From ‘Paddington 2’ to ‘Eighth Grade’ (Photos)

How good a movie year was 2018? Netflix got snubbed from the Cannes Film Festival and still managed to give the world “Roma,” “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” “Happy as Lazzaro” and a reconstruction of Orson Welles’ final film (plus two captivating documentaries about its production and restoration). The ubiquitous superhero genre gave us instant classics like “Black Panther” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse,” and even embraced its sillier side with “Teen Titans Go! to the Movies,” “Aquaman” and “Deadpool 2.” This was a year so great that it gave us not one but two juicy lead roles for John C. Reilly.

Paring the year’s highlights down to 25, let alone 10, was no easy feat, but here goes:

#11-25 (alphabetically): “1985,” “Annihilation,” “A Bread Factory,” “Burning,” “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”, “The Favourite,” “First Reformed,” “Lizzie,” “Private Life,” “Shoplifters,” “Skate Kitchen,” “Stan & Ollie,” “A Star Is Born,” “Tully,” “Zama

Sam Elliott (‘A Star Is Born’) would be 6th oldest Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner

Sam Elliott (‘A Star Is Born’) would be 6th oldest Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner
The Best Supporting Actor Oscar race could be one for the ages. Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”) could become the second youngest winner in the category, but on the other end of the spectrum, Sam Elliott (“A Star Is Born”) could become one of the oldest.

Elliott, who will be 74 years and 199 days old on the Feb. 24 ceremony, would become the sixth oldest Best Supporting Actor champ, dethroning Jack Palance who was 73 years and 41 days old when he did those one-handed push-ups. He’d be a few years off of the fifth spot, held by “Cocoon” (1981) Don Ameche, who was 77 years and 297 days old, and eight years shy of the record set by Christopher Plummer, who became the oldest acting winner in any category at 82 years and 75 days old when he prevailed for “Beginners” (2011).

Peter Travers on Bernardo Bertolucci: A Provocateur Whose Films Inspire Awe

Peter Travers on Bernardo Bertolucci: A Provocateur Whose Films Inspire Awe
The first time I met the rabblerousing Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci, he was searching for a word, rubbing two fingers together as if to spark a thought. “I think — how do I put it? — that the word is texture. You know, how a movie feels when you hold it in your head and run it through all your own life experience. So there’s depth to it. And politics. And sex. And, if you’re lucky, maybe magic.”

Hollywood Remembers Bernardo Bertolucci as a ‘Giant of Italian Filmmaking’
Hollywood is paying their respects to Bernardo Bertolucci, the famed Italian art-house director who died Monday at age of 77 after battling cancer.

Filmmakers and critics celebrated his life’s work, which included films “Last Tango in Paris,” “The Last Emperor” and “The Conformist,” in tributes on Monday morning.

“Farewell to Bernardo Bertolucci, Honorary Palme at #Cannes2011 for his entire career after chairing the Jury in 1990,” the official account of the Cannes Film Festival tweeted. “A giant of Italian filmmaking, he will remain forever a leading light in world cinema.”

Director Guillermo Del Toro took the time to rank his top three Bertolucci films, starting with “The Conformist,” followed by “1900” and “The Last Emperor.”

Bertolucci won the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for “The Last Emperor” and was also nominated in that category for “Last Tango in Paris.

Poll: Thumbs up to another round of ‘Gladiator’ if Ridley Scott is involved

Poll: Thumbs up to another round of ‘Gladiator’ if Ridley Scott is involved
We asked whether you would be excited to see a planned sequel to ‘Gladiator,’ the Best Picture picture winner from 2000 that earned Russell Crowe his lone Oscar as Best Actor. Alas, his warrior Maximus died at the end of the first movie, which will likely cancel out its star’s return.

However, most respondents seem to care more about director Ridley Scott‘s involvement than what actor is in the ring, with 54 percent saying they would definitely see it if the British filmmaker was behind the camera. Still, 40 percent felt that there is no reason to do a sequel without Crowe returning.

Rotten Tomatoes reports the sequel would take place years later and center upon Lucius Verus, the son of Lucilla (Connie Nielsen in the first movie), and the nephew of the late emperor Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix).

That brings up another question. Who would be a good replacement as the hero,

Rian Johnson’s Knives Out has already attracted a number of stellar actors and actresses, but the film is not quite done with its casting just yet. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Christopher Plummer (All The Money In The World) has begun talks to join Johnson’s murder mystery ensemble.

Plot details on Knives Out are being kept tightly under wraps, but the film is described as a “contemporary version of the locked door mansion murder mystery” told in the classic Agatha Christie whodunit style. Production is expected to commence in November. Daniel Craig (Casino Royale) will portray the lead detective in charge of solving the murder.

Should Plummer join the film, he will star alongside Craig, Chris Evans (Avengers: Infinity War), Lakeith Stanfield (Sorry to Bother You), Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water), Don Johnson (Miami Vice), Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049) and Toni Collette

Will you be entertained by a sequel to ‘Gladiator’ directed by Ridley Scott? (Poll)

Will you be entertained by a sequel to ‘Gladiator’ directed by Ridley Scott? (Poll)
After reviving the “Alien” franchise, it looks as if Ridley Scott is ready for another round of “Gladiator.” The 2000 film that was nominated for 12 Oscars and won five, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Russell Crowe as Roman warrior Maximus, was responsible for a boom in historical epics as the 21st century dawned, including “Troy,” “King Arthur,” “Alexander,” Scott’s own “Kingdom of Heaven” and “Robin Hood.” There was even a gladiator scene in “Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones.”

As Deadline originally reported, Paramount is gung-ho to revive the later-day “Spartacus” with a screenplay by Peter Craig (“The Town”). However, it isn’t clear yet what path the follow-up will take, considering that Maximus dies at the end of the original film.

But if anyone can work a miracle, it is Scott, considering he was able to save his film about the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III,
