Reviewing 2018


Another year, another review. I’ll mostly stick to the format of last year’s review and present to you my own “best of” lists.


This year, I started tracking the movies I’ve watched: 33 movies in 2018 (but only 14 of them were from 2018).

My favorite movie of 2018 is Avengers: Infinity War! Yes, yes, sounds like an easy choice but I actually watched it twice in the cinema and it became one of my favorite movies of all time. I’m absolutely looking forward to Avengers: Endgame next year!!

Avengers: Infinity War by Marvel Entertainment

Interestingly, there were a lot of sequels this year: Deadpool 2, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (second Jurassic World), Ant-Man and the Wasp (second Ant-Man), The Equalizer 2, Sicario 2, Incredibles 2, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (second Fantastic Beasts). :thinking:

I was quite excited to watch Ready Player One because I’ve read the book, which I liked very much, many years ago (I rarely read books :see_no_evil:) but the movie is “okay”. :joy:

TV Shows

My favorite new(!) TV show of 2018 is Maniac. It’s actually a mini-series but whatever. :laughing: Netflix delivers once again.

I don’t have runner-ups this year, nothing new really stood out. If you like to watch documentaries, I can recommend Vitamania and Big Cats.

Ongoing shows like Legion, Westworld, Better Call Saul, and Daredevil had very strong seasons this year. :+1: I’m looking forward to the series finale of Game of Thrones next year! :raised_hands:


My favorite YouTube video of 2018 is Rusty Deadlocked Vice - Perfect Restoration by my mechanics.

Since YouTube doesn’t have a subscription history, I created a list on my own since my last year’s review. This year, I’ve subscribed to these channels: Gus Johnson, videogamedunkey, Steve Schoger, DoodleChaos, PaymoneyWubby, my mechanics, and Jablinski Games.

I’m not so sure about the last one yet because I just got hooked by the hype. We’ll see if it’s a shitty channel or not. Other than that, I’m quite happy with the content of the channels I’ve subscribed to this year.


My favorite game of 2018 is Pokémon: Let’s Go. I haven’t played a game so intensely without getting stressed or bored for a very long time. Nostalgia hit me hard.

Runner-ups are Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As you can see, I’m still a big fan of Nintendo Switch and its games.

Oh well, maybe it’s worth mentioning that I also enjoyed playing Minit this year.


Most of the time, I’m listening to the songs that I like from Discover Weekly on Spotify. You can listen to my top 100 songs of 2018 in this Spotify playlist. This year I really enjoyed Earth Past by Flite, The Silence by Grafton Primary, Heartbeat (feat. Basile Di Manski) by Data, The Moment - Instrumental by Mad Blade Beats, and Hazy by Thought Beings.

I noticed that I don’t even look at the artist’s names anymore. I was actually very surprised who Flite was while writing this blog post. And it looks like that I listened 5,670 more minutes to music on Spotify than last year.
