“Reel Talk” – with Chris Reed and Tim Gordon – on “On the Basis of Sex,” “Destroyer” and the Best/Worst Films of 2018

Christopher Llewellyn Reed, “Reel Talk” host, w/ Tim Gordon of thefilmgordon.com

Welcome to the third episode of the 2018-2019 season of Dragon Digital Media‘s Reel Talk with Christopher Llewellyn Reed. My guest this time was the Film Gordon himself (and President of WAFCA), Tim Gordon, returning to the show once more. We discussed our favorite (and least favorite) films of 2018 (see my full list here), plus On the Basis of Sex and Destroyer. Enjoy? Be sure to check out our first and second episodes of the season, or even last year’s season (Episode 1Episode 2Episode 3Episode 4 and Episode 5). We’ll be back in March. Until then!

In Howard County, Maryland, you can watch the show on Channel 41 (if you’re a Verizon customer) or Channel 96 (if you’re a Comcast customer), and you can watch it online from anywhere. The fantastic Dragon Digital Media team did their usual superlative job putting this together, especially producer Karen Vadnais and director Danielle Maloney, as well as floor manager Anthony Hoos. Have fun this summer at the movies! Here’s hoping there are at least a few great films!

Mr. Reed’s Metaphysical Neighborhood Presents the Best Film Acting of 2018

On December 26, 2018, I published my list of best (and worst) films of the year, and now here is my list of best actors of the year. As always, there is no need to publish a separate “best directors” list since, if the film is good, I credit the director for much of that quality. A few actors and actresses in films which I did not put among my highest choices still made it onto the list, below, since they were so magnetic (to me), even if the film they were in was less so. All movie titles are hyperlinked to my review, if such a review exists, or to the movie’s Rotten Tomatoes page, if there is no review. While last year I listed more than 5 actors per category, this year I go back to the traditional five-per-category model. In alphabetical order, by last name within each category, I give you:
