Best-Reviewed Animated Movies 2018

It was an incredibly strong field for animation, with highly-rated contenders in the field of 2-D (Teen Titans Go! To the Movies), 3-D (Ralph Breaks the Internet), stop-motion (Isle of Dogs), and a Spider-Man that seem to combine it all in one exhilarating web. And we kept the animation medium to itself, which is why, for example, Incredibles 2 is here and wasn’t eligible in the Comic Book/Graphic Novel category.
