Another busy year at the movies has come to a close, so it’s the perfect time to go over some of this reviewer’s personal favorites.

Everyone’s taste in movies is different (which is what makes it fun to compare and contrast your opinions with others). Anyway, here are my 10 favorite films of 2018.

10. Leave No Trace – One of the best independent films of the year was this unusual tale of a war veteran father and his daughter, who have escaped civilization and retreated into the forests. When the pair’s discovered by authorities, they’re forced into...
