It may be lost among all the Oscar-nominated films dominating cinemas at the moment, but Finding Your Feet is a fresh alternative that can’t fail to please. Endlessly charming, an excellent cast brings a sweet, emotional story with plenty of good laughs and a few memorable lines.
With excellent writing, directing and cinematography, and emotional and realistic WWII London is brought to life, supported by an excellent cast. This is all topped off by an incredibly transformed Gary Oldman, fully evoking Churchill and giving us the performance of a lifetime. A big V for victory!
I, Tonya is nothing if not refreshing; a uniquely styled biopic which breaks the fourth wall, is effortlessly entertaining and captivates the audience with flawless performances of very flawed characters. This one easily steals a gold medal.
The Shape of Water is an incredible, beautiful and sweet film that will touch the hearts of moviegoers worldwide. A cautionary tale with a performer of themes and messages that anyone can identify with. This will be a beloved classic, loved more and more with every re-watch. A magical, ‘adult fairytale’.
Fifty Shades Freed is just about as bad as you would expect. With a lacklustre story, poorly drawn characters, sluggishly slow pace and and unsexy sex scenes that seem like an afterthought, it doesn’t matter how attractive the leafs are or how funny it all is, this is just proof that sometimes fan-fiction should just remain fan-fiction.
With exciting and varied action, plenty of laughs and an excellent ensemble of characters, it fits perfectly into the rest of Marvel. Add to that a refreshingly different feel with exemplary Afrofuturism, Black Panther is one of Marvel’s finest yet.
