If I I had to use one word to describe the first two movies in the X has fallen franchise; it’d be fun… or stupid. The Gerard Butler lead franchise about a secret service agent, who serves under what has to be the most attempts on a U.S. President’s life within a decade, are movies that lead with their chin.
Frequent readers of my blog will have probably been waiting for this post with bated breath; but probably not. It’s hard to miss that I talk about Dragon Ball a hell of a lot on here, so an inevitable review of Dragon Ball super: Broly was only ever a matter of time.

They even turned a hell of a lot of people away at the doors.

It’s a start I feel happy with though, I discovered some new stuff and am looking forward to see what I can introduce myself to in 2019.
Before I get ahead of myself talking about brand new anime in 2019, there is still a matter of the number one entry on my 2018 list.

This is a predictable entry for me, and at a point I was going to be apologetic about it. But what’s the point in being apologist when it comes to an obvious winner?
For the final time, let’s sum up my entire top ten list for 2018:
