For some of us, the day after Christmas means the return to work. Or the beginning of other celebrations, like Kwanzaa.

For many of us, it's also a time to relax and catch up on the movies we've been meaning to see,  whether it be at the movie theater or snuggled up at home with your favorite streaming service.

During this special hour, Radio Boston discusses the movies that made a cultural impression on the year 2018. We revisit conversations about the breakout film "Crazy Rich Asians," and the rich coming of age film "Eighth Grade." Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr also talks about the must-see movies of the year.
