2018 has been a fantastic year for entertainment. Some of the most anticipated releases of all time, including Avengers: Infinity War and Red Dead Redemption II, all debuted in this year, sweeping sales and nabbing strong critical acclaim. So many excellent releases in entertainment debuted this year, making it one of the best times to be a cinephile, gamer, or avid reader.
In an age where media has become such an integral part of society, HBB Reviews is proud to be able to do what we do and deliver regular content to our ever-expanding audience. It has been a fantastic period of growth for the outlet, as 2018 marked some our very first things, including interviews and partnerships.
When I initially founded HBB Reviews, I did so only to put my opinion about film onto the internet. That was the only purpose. Using a subdomain from Wix, nobody would take it seriously. Nobody would take it with legitimacy. And they had all the reason in the world to do so. But thanks to feedback from the audience back then, HBB Reviews has been able to flourish far past my wildest dreams. Recently in September, we added staff-a very first for the outlet, as I previously had done everything by myself. Several of our members are now enlisted in some of the most prominent film critics society in the nation and we have been given the opportunity to attend top-tier conventions as press. These were experiences that I will never forget and I am so grateful to every PR agency, marketing representative, artist, or member of the press that helped bring this dream of mine to life.
But more than anything, I wish to thank you-the reader who has been here, enjoying our content for the entirety of 2018. 2018 was easily our best year and that is thanks to every reader who has ever clicked on our site. Some of our best content debuted this year, including exclusive interviews and some of our featured reviews, including Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. We have had exclusive partnerships with some of the biggest publishers this year, and our reviews have been highlighted by studios as part of their marketing campaign. Even today, the progression that HBB Reviews has made is still staggering, and it has been a humbling experience to watch it do so.
Every day I wake up unsure if I will have these experiences ever again. And maybe I won’t. But the impactful nature of this year can only be attributed to the faith of so many. It’s been a massive undertaking that is finally underway and the entire staff of HBB Reviews thanks you for being there for us and enjoying what we love to do. HBB Reviews thanks you for a marvelous 2018.
