From superhero epic Black Panther to terrifying thriller A Quiet Place to top-grossing rom-com Crazy Rich Asians, 2018 has been an extraordinary year for movies. In fact, review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes has classified 191 movies released this year as “certified fresh,” a distinction given only to the best-reviewed movies on the website.

Movies are certified fresh if their rating on Rotten Tomatoes is at 75% or higher after they have received a set number of reviews (80 for wide releases and 40 for limited releases), including five from top critics.

Among the movies that scored a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes in 2018 were the Netflix stand-up special Hannah Gadsby: Nanette, skateboard documentary Minding the Gap and animated crowd-pleaser Paddington 2, earning them top spots on the list of the best-reviewed movies of the year.
