We’re now just a few days away from the end of 2018, which means it’s time for film journalists to ask themselves the tough questions.
Questions like… Is ‘Shallow’ the best track on the A Star Is Born soundtrack? (The answer is NO). And, more importantly, was there a more awesome scene this year than when Thor landed in Wakanda in Avengers: Infinity War? (The answer is HELL NO).
It’s also the time where we at HeyUGuys ask the good and great of the online film community to weigh in on their 10 favourite films of the past 12 months. Last year Get Out took the top spot, while previous winners have included Skyfall, Gravity, Boyhood, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Arrival.
This year promises to be yet another hotly contested race – last year, it came down to ONE VOTE – as 2018 has given us a host of great films to choose from.
For those of you who are new to this, here’s the 411:
UK releases only!: This simply means that films which open in the UK in 2019 such as If Beale Street Could Talk, The Favourite, and Mary, Queen of Scots are not eligible for your lists. Furthermore, films such as The Shape Of Water, Phantom Thread, The Post, and Lady Bird – all of which opened in the US in 2017 but didn’t arrive in the UK until this year – are fair game. If in doubt, consult the Launching Films website here.
We’ll be watching for this, but we’d appreciate it if you could help us out!
No particular order required: You do not need to go through the trouble of rating your lists 1-10 (because we’re nice like that). Just ensure that you send us your 10 favourites.

In 2018 we had a record number of lists to collate, and we’d love to have even more this year. Once again, previous polls have come down to ONE VOTE, so please know that your list matters. To that end, we’d appreciate it if you could spread the word on this online as much as possible. Thanks!
