2018 at the Movies: the Best, the Worst, and the Surprising

There are 347 films eligible in the feature film category at this year’s Oscars and it’s that time of the year when lists are made, however ridiculous it might seem to compare “Avengers: Infinity War” and “RBG.” The films I found most satisfying this year, either while watching them or while...
