Contra Zoom

78: Top Films of 2018

Despite it being March, it is finally here! The top ten films of 2018 Contra Zoom mega episode! This episode has everything including a great co-host in Stephanie, four terrific guest spots and more films mentioned than you could imagine.

On this episode, four friends of the show were asked to send in a voice mail of what their favourite film from 2018 was.

  • Sean Chin’s favourite film was the mountain climbing documentary Free Solo
  • Scott Murdoch’s favourite film was the Sony animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse
  • Curtis Sindrey’s favourite film was the darkly comedic Game Night
  • Sammy Feilchenfeld’s favourite film was beautiful black and white Mexican film Roma

It is humanly impossible to see every film in a given year and below is the list that Dakota and Stephanie weren’t able to catch up with that they thought might have had potential to crack their top ten… if they saw them.

The duo also listed their honourable mentions; films that they really loved but just didn’t quite make the final list.

Here are the final ten films that made Stephanie’s list:

1. Capernaum

2. Minding the Gap

3. BlacKkKlansman

4. Shoplifters

5. Can You Ever Forgive Me?

6. Vice

7. The Favourite

8. Eighth Grade

Something new I’ll be asking people to do is to rate and review Contra Zoom on Podchaser, a site that aims to be the IMDb of podcasts. Please rate 5 stars and if possible leave a short review to help grow this show.

Also if you have never given the show a rating on iTunes, that also helps tremendously. Every bit of exposure helps grow the show.
