The big players
The films everyone is talking about, up for the big prizes at the Oscars in March. We reckon British actor Sally Hawkins’ film The Shape of Water is definitely worth a look, as The Guardian puts it, ‘Girl meets hot fish monster, falls in love, plots to break him out of a top-secret government research facility’. Bonkers but brilliant.
If that doesn’t take your fancy then how about The Darkest Hour? Gary Oldman takes on the challenge of bringing Winston Churchill to life just as he’s been made Prime Minister, holding the fate of a nation in his hands. Compelling, stirring, and worth it just for the incredible make-up involved in turning Oldman into Churchill.
Best of the rest
If Oscar bait doesn’t take your fancy, what else is out? Round here at Plusnet Towers there’s a lot of enthusiasm for Black Panther, the latest superhero film from Marvel. With a stellar cast and properly good soundtrack, even if you’re not a Marvel fan it’d be hard not to like this one.
If it’s an outing with the kids that you’re after then Coco might be a good shout. This animated Disney-Pixar tale about a young Mexican boy unlocking his family’s history also involves a thrilling journey through the land of the dead and some excellent guitar playing.
