2018 In Film – Do I Make You Sad? (Tribute)

Another year of film is about to pass, so I did something a bit different to mark the occasion. You’ve probably seen a few tributes like the one shown above, but hopefully you’ll find that this one is a bit more thematic than others. Each song choice, scene, and even some edits plays into a larger theme of what 2018 meant to me as a filmgoer. Also, I purposefully chose 162 films to highlight, which obviously includes movies I haven’t even seen yet, as well as films I didn’t even particularly like. But I know many of you watching did, and I want to celebrate the universal appeal of cinema for everyone. Not just me.

SONGS:
“Orinoco Flow” – Enya
“You Only Live Twice” – Beulahbelle
“The Landing (from First Man)” – Justin Hurwitz
“Welcome Home” – Morris Rahbar

  1. 2018 was such a good year for movies. I haven’t seen half of what’s in the video but great editing. I teared up a little.
