Once we're Warriors. Brilliant New Zealand film. 9/10
The Shape of Water
Taken me too long to watch it. Massive Guillermo del Toro fan. Thought it was good but not one of his best. Great performances and an interesting plot.
Not sure anything he does will be as good as Pan's Labyrinth.
I thought it was gash.
Pan's Labrynth was different class.
Shape of Water is what it is - a beauty and the beast fairytale with the creature from the black lagoon. If you go into it, accepting that is what it is, then it does make it easier to connect with. Cant comment on the visual aspects to it, but its the performances that kept me hooked. Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spencer both were very good, but Michael Shannon was the standout.
Definitely didn't think it deserved the Best Picture Oscar though.
Poor stuff from Minty.
I haven’t seen all the nominees for Best Picture last year but I definitely preferred Three Billboards and even Dunkirk.
Agree with you in regards to Michael Shannon. He tends to be the best thing about any film or TV show he’s in. Fantastic actor.

Mortal Engines - I read the book when I was a teen and enjoyed it, so I was looking forward to this coming out. Reading the book helps pick up detail much faster, than you would just watching the film alone. Overall it was a good adaption of the story with a lot of intense drama towards the end.
Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse
Felt very much like a comic book coming to life. Plenty of humour and action in what is an origin story (of sorts). Plenty for fans and casuals to enjoy, and while i can't speak to the visuals, my daughter loved the blending of the various forms of illustration within the animation.
The Ardennes 8.
Was surprised how good this was,starts of as a kitchen sink crime drama set in antwerp,then goes full pulp fiction mode.good acting throughout.And crazy but good soundtrack.They dont make enough movies like this.
