10 Must See Movies In The Year Of 2018

Fantastic Beasts 2, Maze Runner, Avengers Infinity War? Oh my!


I always see videos on YouTube with movie critics giving their "worst movies of the year" or "best movies of the year" and it made me realize that there were a lot of movies in 2017 that I did not even hear about, let alone know about. Due to this, I did research on the movies that are coming out in 2018 and there are a few that definitely sparked my attention. Diving into the new year, these are ten of the most promising movies of 2018:

1. Maze Runner: Death Cure

Maze Runner: Death Cure has the release date of January 26, 2018. This is the third movie in the Maze Runner series and I have been a fan of the books as well as both the previous movies. The movie is directed by Wes Ball and includes cast members Dylan O'Brien, Katherine McNamara, Kaya Scodelario, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. It has a PG-13 rating and you can read the plot summary here.

2. Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed has the release date of February 09, 2018. It is the final movie in the "Fifty Shades" trilogy and is directed by James Foley. While there are people that absolutely hate the books and movies, I actually think that E.L. James has a creative aspect. I did read all three books and I have seen both the previous movies and am planning to see this one as well. #NotAshamed. The movie has an R rating, and you can read the plot summary here.

3. Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit has the release date of February 09, 2018. This movie is directed by Will Gluck and includes actors Margot Robbie, Daisy Ridley, and James Corden. I actually had no idea this movie was coming out until I did the research for this article. The film is based on the stores of Peter Rabbit from the Tales of Peter Rabbit that were written by Beatrix Potter. While I already know this movie is not going to be one of the best for 2018, I think it is an anticipated movie because it is a different genre of movie. It has a PG rating, and you can read the plot summary here.

4. Black Panther

Black Panther has the release date of February 16, 2018. This movie is directed by Ryan Coogler and includes actors Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, and Lupita Nyong'o. Marvel is really outdoing it this year - in a good way. I have always loved Marvel movies so you already know that the Marvel movies are gonna be on this list. Plus, Black Panther was totally awesome with his preview in Captain America: Civil War. This movie is not rated and you can read the plot summary here.

5. A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time has the release date of March 09, 2018. This movie is directed by Ava DuVernay and includes actors Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, and Oprah Winfrey. I remember reading this book in middle school and absolutely loved it! So, now that a movie is coming out AND Disney is doing it, this movie automatically made my list. This movie has a PG rating, and you can read the plot summary here.

6. The New Mutants

The New Mutants has the release date of April 13, 2018. This movie is directed by Josh Boone and includes actors Anya Taylor-Joy, Happy Anderson, and Maisie Williams. This movie starts off a different X-Men saga and does not have a rating. I am one of those people that try to stay away from trailers, so I honestly have no idea what to expect from this movie, but that is the excitement of it! You can read the plot summary here.

7. Avengers Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War has the release date of May 04, 2018. This movie is directed by the Russo Brothers, Anthony and Joe, and includes many actors including Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Holland, and Tom Hiddleston. This movie will tie in the recent movies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I have been waiting years for this movie. All the Marvel movies have been leading up to this moment. This movie does not have a rating, and you can read the plot summary here.

8. Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 has the release date of June 01, 2018. This movie is directed by David Leitch and includes the actors Ryan Renolds, Morena Baccarin, and Josh Brolin. I am really hoping that the director does not totally botch this movie. The first Deadpool movie was hilarious and flowed really well in my opinion. I would hate for the sequel to be the opposite. This movie does not have a rating but will probably be rated R. You can read the plot summary here.

9. Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2 has the release date of June 15, 2018. The first Incredibles movie came out in 2004, meaning it has taken Disney and Pixar 14 years to finally make this movie a reality. I HAVE BEEN WAITING MY ENTIRE LIFE FOR THIS MOVIE AND IT IS FINALLY HERE!! The movie is directed by Brad Bird and includes the actors Samuel L. Jackson, Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, and John Ratzenberger. This movie does not have a rating, but taking into consideration the first movie was PG, it is more likely that Incredibles 2 will also have a PG rating. You can read the plot summary here.

10. Venom

Venom has the release date of October 05, 2018. This movie is directed by Ruben Fleischer and includes actors Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, and Riz Ahmed. The movie is not yet rated but predicted to be rated R as well as there is not a plot summary for the movie yet. However, any big Spiderman fan will know that Spiderman 3 did not do Venom justice, so this is hopefully going to be the movie Venom deserves.

There are also a few movies that I am sort of excited for but they are not ones I am most anticipating. Therefore, the following movies are honorable mentions: X-Men: Dark Phoenix (November 02, 2018); Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (November 16, 2018); Wreck-It Ralph 2 (November 21, 2018); Aquaman (December 21, 2018); and Bumblebee (December 21, 2018).

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
