Live The Days Of Our Livez With Bone Thugs-N-Harmony At The Rail Club Travel Alone With Jason Isbell At The Bomb Factory And Cheer The Mavs On To Victory Over Golden State.

So we’ve said goodbye to 2017. Officially. And there’s so much to look forward to this year.

There’s the November midterm elections, the World Cup Finals, a royal wedding and — of course — lots and lots of movies. Among the most anticipated movies are Black Panther, Avengers Infinity War, Solo: A Star Wars Story and The Incredibles 2. No new Star Wars, so the die hards who hated it have a year to cool off.

But if you didn’t keep up with film in 2017 as much as you would have wanted to, then rest easy. Our film critics threw together their top film picks for last year so you’ll know what to watch before the Academy Awards air in March. And stay tuned to our Coming Attractions posts so you don’t lose track of the newest exciting films coming out this year.

But alas, this is barely day one of 2018 and there’s still a way’s to go before those titles drop. And until then, you need things to do, and it just so happens that we’re about as excited as ever to inform you of all the cool shit to do in DFW from week to week, like all the stuff below. Now get out there and start 2018 with your best foot forward.
