Best summer movies of 2018: 'Eighth Grade,' 'Won't You Be My Neighbor' lead our picks

Summer 2018 kicked off with the box-office-busting "Avengers: Infinity War," which has grossed more than $2 billion worldwide since its May release. But even the year's most anticipated film wasn't a smash hit with critics and audiences: While 91% of audiences loved "Infinity War," critics were more tepid, with just 83% showing support.

With that in mind, we took a look at all of this summer's releases to gauge which ones are all hype -- and which ones are the real deal. Just a select few made the final cut of films you absolutely can't miss this summer. Take a look:

"WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?," a poignant documentary chronicling the life and legacy of TV's Mr. Rogers.

Rotten Tomatoes: 99% from critics // 98% from audiences

AOL says: You'll smile, you'll cry, you'll think about it for days. "Won't You Be My Neighbor" expertly takes a hands-off approach to Mr. Rogers' teachings, allowing the footage to speak for itself -- especially in its final few minutes, which will reduce even the most stoic of viewers to mush.

"EIGHTH GRADE," a thoughtful, contemporary comedy-drama following 13-year-old Kayla through her tumultuous final week of middle school.

Rotten Tomatoes: 98% from critics // Audience reviews pending

AOL says: Countless coming-of-age films showcase life through the eyes of a teen, but "Eighth Grade" is a gentle reminder that today's adolescents lack the luxury of trusting what they physically see before them; instead, "reality" is shaped by photos and videos, likes and comments. A must-watch for teens and adults alike.

"INCREDIBLES 2," the long-awaited superhero sequel to one of Pixar's funniest flicks of all time.

Rotten Tomatoes: 94% from critics // 87% from audiences

AOL says: Did 13% of audiences accidentally watch a different movie? "Incredibles 2" delivers everything a Disney-Pixar fan is looking for: Sharp storytelling, cute but compelling characters and snappy commentary from Fro-Zone's wife.

"SORRY TO BOTHER YOU," the Sundance favorite about a black man who discovers that using his "white voice" is his ticket to conquering corporate America.

Rotten Tomatoes: 95% from critics // Audience reviews pending

AOL says: Funny but pointed, "Sorry to Bother You" is strong evidence that moviegoers of 2018 are done with one-dimensional slapstick comedies.
