The 2018 Lowedown Awards Results Show

Well fellow space travelers… another year of movies is over and I have to say it was a pretty good year. I reviewed a total of 96 movies that came out on video in 2018… there have been cheers and jeers, highs and lows, good and bad. With all the awards out there that are given to films, I don’t see any that focus on movies that the masses like to watch. The Academy and The Globes can have their shows… We have The Lowedown Awards.

First, let me explain the rules:

  1. The movie has to be released on physical media in 2018 (DVD, Blu-Ray, 4K)
  2. I have to have seen and reviewed the film
  3. Four nominations for each category
  4. A movie can only be nominated in one category
  5. The nominations are voted on by the fans…I do not choose the winners.

The $29.99 4K Ultra Award

The 4K Ultra award is the highest award given by The Lowedown. To be considered for a nomination, movies have to have received a 9.0 or higher score… if there are more or less than four, then the four highest scores are nominated. Lucky for me, I had only our… and the nominees are:

Black Panther – 9.0
The Avengers: Infinity War – 9.1
The Incredibles 2 – 9.2
Mission: Impossible Fallout – 9.2

The Lowedown’s pick…Mission Impossible: Fallout.

And the award goes to…

The Winner…Avengers: Infinity War

The $24.99 Blu-Ray Award

The Next award is the Blu-Ray award. Nominations for this award have to receive an 8.6 – 8.9… and again if there were more or less than four, then the top four scores are nominated. Once again the universe is aligned and I have four nominations:

Deadpool 2 – 8.9
Ready Player One – 8.8
Coco – 8.8
Three Billboards – 8.7

The Lowedown’s pick…Ready Player One

And the award goes to…

The Winner…Ready Player One

The $14.99 Sleeper Award

The Sleeper award is given to the biggest surprise of the year. Nominees for this award normally get between a 7.5-8.5 but more importantly had low to medium expectations that were exceeded. The nominees are:

Den of Thieves – 8.0
Hurricane Heist – 7.7
Unlocked – 7.5
Upgrade – 8.4

The Lowedown’s pick…Upgrade.

And the award goes to…

The Winner – Upgrade

The $.99 Stinker Award

The Stinker Award is given to the biggest disappointment. It doesn’t mean it was bad, just that it did not live up to expectations. The score can vary… it only means my hopes were shattered when I paid good money for a movie I probably will only watch once without alcohol.

And the nominees are…

15:17 to Paris…4.9
The Snowman…5.7
Fahrenheit 451…5.6
Proud Mary…5.9

The Lowedown’s Pick…The 15:17 to Paris

And the winner is…

The Winner…The Snowman
