    Hereditary was a great story idea that fell flat on it's face. (I have a review in this forum)
    Deadpool 2 was a decent flick. Some parts were a little dumb, but overall pretty decent.
    Spider-Man...blah blah....ugh
    Aquaman...you and the other three people who saw it.
    Avengers: Infinity Wars... good as long as you can ignore the 100 problems in the film that make you say "eh??"

    I don't get the love for Hereditary. I didn't particularly like it.
    Deadpool 2 didn't quite live up to the first movie, but it was still fun and funny.
    Into the Spider-Verse was actually very enjoyable.
    I haven't seen Aquaman, and I don't really expect it to be good, but "three people who saw it"? The movie has made $800 million so far.
    That's a pretty good take on Infinity War. There are definitely problems with the movie. I think it's a very good first-watch film, but subsequent viewings are not nearly as good as some of the flaws become more apparent or harder to ignore.

    I loved hereditary. I get the criticisms of the move, and it definitely isn’t for everyone. Horror isn’t my favorite genre, but I love horror movies that really get in your head and stick with you for a good while; the more psychological ones like The Exorcist, Silence of the Lambs, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, etc.

    It definitely takes a lot from classic horror films, but I just felt like it was done so well. It’s probably my favorite horror movie of the past 10 years or so along with A Dark Song.

    Also, I normally wouldn’t have this many comic book movies on my list, but no other movies really impressed me this year except for Hereditary.

    I don't remember all that much about Hereditary, but I think my problem was that the story ended up not making a lot of sense. I didn't get upset because it was derivative of other horror movies; I watch very little horror, so I doubt I would have noticed similarities with other movies.

    I think Silence of the Lambs is a thriller rather than a horror.

    Just my opinion, I weigh movies by their "believability"; a movie that doesn't surpass the audiences ability to suspend reality.
    And hereditary did not pass that test. For instance the teen brother, he sees a demonic being come out of the wall and grab hold of him while he is in bed. Yet...he only mildly freaks out about it...and simply goes back to bed. Really???? That is not believable.
    In the movie Infinity Wars. If you knew nothing of the story line, never saw an Avenger movie before, didn't know the characters or their abilities - then it was a pretty good movie with fantastic special effects. But....they made glaring errors that stretched fans of Avengers ability to forget how wrong the situation was. Repeatedly.
    And Dark Song is a brilliant movie. One of the best horror movies made, and would be a respectable candidate for the best horror film of the decade.
