The 2018 MFF Random Awards: A Celebration of Beer Can Tattoos, Coffee Drinking and Screaming Bears

December 18, 2018

The MFF random awards are back, and you’re going to love this year’s collection of awards. If you haven’t heard of our random awards, just know they are random and celebrate everything we loved about 2018 cinema. If you get a chance make sure to check out our past random awards and their corresponding podcasts.

Sit back, relax and enjoy our awards.

Best Usage of a Table to Kill a Guy Award

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is my favorite 2018 movie and a big reason for that is the opening segment featuring Tim Blake Nelson being very violent.


Best Skull Faced Hurricane Award

I love Hurricane Heist because it’s bonkers and embraces that fact. For example, the hurricane takes the face of a skeleton TWICE!


Best Security Guard Who Drinks Coffee Award

Barry the security guard in Paddington 2 is my favorite 2018 character. The guy is totally inept but insanely likable despite the fact that he is virtually unhirable.

Simon Farnaby is my hero

Best Screaming Bear With a Bear/Human Skull That Screams “Help Me!” Award

Homerton the Screaming Bear is terrifying and awesome. You need to watch Annihilation.


Best Finger Removal Award

The Night Comes for Us is the best action film of 2018 AND it features an insane moment involving a character pulling off her finger during a crazy brawl.

You need to watch this movie

Second Best Finger Removal Award

I had to throw in another mention of The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.


Third Best Finger Removal Award

Gareth Edward’s Apostle is a gnarly little movie that is loaded with island gods, blood mountains and finger removal. Watch it now on Netflix!

This scene hurts.

Best Goblin Who Loves Cheddar Award

The Cheddar Godlin scene in Mandy is perfection because it let’s the audience know it’s totally cool to laugh along with Mandy. It’s a nice respite from the insanity of the film.


Best Southern Gentleman Carrying a Building Award

The world needs more of Walton Goggins battling Paul Rudd in Marvel movies. I love Ant-Man and the Wasp.


Best “I’m a Busy Guy” Award

The Tomb Raider reboot is very underrated and we hope it gains an audience throughout the years. One of the things we appreciate most is Daniel Wu’s “very busy” character who helps out Alicia Vikander’s Lara Croft.


Sexiest Pizza Award

Anytime a movie character says “I want to f**k this pizza,” you know you got a sexy pizza. You should watch Set it Up.


Best Running Award

You probably think we were going to go with Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible – Fallout. However, we think Cynthia Erivo’s Belle character in Widows is the best runner of 2018. She flies in this movie and is a legit runner in the real world.


Best Gif Worthy Dance Montage Award

We are big fans of The Babysitter (listen to the pod about it) and appreciate a fun dancing montage involving Foghat.


Best “See You Later” Award

Where did Wong go in Avengers: Infinity War? He shows up for a battle, fights the battle, and then ducks out to do something else.

Wong ducks out in this movie.

Best Job Offer Award

Sorry to Bother You is a fantastic movie that features committed performances and an amazing job offer.


Best Beer Can Phoenix Tattoo Award

If you ever get impaled on a tree in the middle of nowhere, you should consider pulling a Revenge and cauterizing the wound with a beer can that has a phoenix on it.

You need to watch Revenge.

Best “I Know Kung-Fu” Award 

Upgrade is an instant action/horror classic that features a brilliant moment involving a guy realizing he is a killing machine. It is an awesome moment and you need to to watch this movie.


Best Magical Creature Riding a Champagne Cork Award

We love Nifflers. We didn’t like Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. However, don’t hold that against the Nifflers.


Best Singing in Front of a Two-Way Mirror Award

Bad Times at the El Royale is a badass movie that will most certainly make our 2018 top 10 list. The two-way mirror singing scene is fantastic.


Most Convincing Horror Performance That Gives Me Real Life Anxiety About Leaving My House Award

Unsane is a beautiful stress bomb that features a fantastic Claire Foy performance.


Best Use of a Severed Head Moment Award

We are going to spoil anything about the decapitated head in Hereditary. Just know the decapitated head is used in a very squirmy way.


Most Baffling WTF Moment Award

Hold the Dark is baffling, beautiful and weird. We recommend you bask in the experience, and don’t try to analyze Jeremy Saulnier’s violent-epic too much.


Best Bathroom Fight Award

Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill engage in one of the greatest bathroom fights ever in Mission: Impossible – Fallout. You know a fight is great when it’s intensity exhausts you.

Such a great fight.

Best Rib Breaking Award

We really like Daisy Ridley’s rib breaking rabbit in Peter Rabbit.
