Yes, I know there’s still a week or so left until the end of 2018, but as most of the bloggers of the Collective will be taking a break for the holidays, I thought I’d share my favorite films from the year (so far), in case you need a watch-list to queue up on Netflix during your vacation. I still have plans to see two or three more films before the end of the year, but they’ll be hard pressed to beat these films from earlier this year! So, gather your Christmas cookies and press play on one of these if you haven’t seen it yet!

It feels oddly appropriate that Ocean’s 8 arrives this year, adding a sweet sense of victory to the tides of change that started decades ago, but gained new life over the past two years from cultural landslides like the Women’s March or the #MeToo movement. Things are changing, and yes, it may seem weird that a heist film starring eight badass women is an icon for us to rally to behind, but it is also ironically appropriate. It takes a woman with authority, ability, and ambition to make things happen, or in this case, eight women.
