I discovered Porcupine Tree this year. Not sure how they flew under my radar for so long.
Ranks up there when a fellow jelly introduced me to Opeth a few years back.

For movies, Snowpiercer was a random Netflix pick that tops my list. Completely unexpected treat.

Ugh! I wrote that wrong. Three Identical Strangers.

I hated Snowpiercer.

@ARE_you_kidding_me I am a huge PT and Steven Wilson fan. I also found them through Opeth.

BlackKklansman ( Best Picture, Best Director )

First Man ( Best Screenplay, Best Picture )

Solo ( one of only two post OT SW films along with Rogue that wasn’t a piece of crap )

my top favorite though is the Freddie Mercury film : )

@Aethelwine

I appreciate their musicianship, but I really dislike the lead singers voice on their latest album. He has a quality similar to Robert Plant’s, but I feel like his shrieking is so sudden and random, it’s kind of torture to sit through.

@filmfann

The Death of Stalin was my third most disliked movie of 2018. I’ll have to rewatch it though.

@mazingerz88

Enjoyed Bohemian Rhapsody for the most part, but I was really disappointed with the large number of egregious factual inaccuracies in the film. Did it effect your viewing at all?

Aethelwine's avatar

@rockfan It’s something I don’t mind but I can understand. The guitarist is amazing.
