Black Panther is a great film, and a phenomenal Marvel film even if the plot is a little predictable and formulaic at times. It's still an achievement though, not to mention inspiring.
Screened on opening night of the Future Gate Sci-fi Film Festival, How to Talk to Girls at Parties is a hilarious and delightfully playful interpretation of Neil Gaiman's punk inspired short story and destined for cult classic greatness.
The Shape of Water is a gothic fairy tale full of originality and heart. Charming and truly captivating from start to finish, not to mention a visual feat that only Guillermo Del Toro could pull off.
The Cloverfield Paradox is a wholly conventional and typical sci-fi horror that does little for the genre and nothing for the mysterious universe to which it belongs.
Three Billboards is an absolute knockout. A well-balanced dramedy with a fierce and sometimes brutal sense of humour, and packed with powerhouse performances ruled by Frances McDormand, who's well on her way to Oscar glory.
Loving Vincent sets a new benchmark for film-making with its stunning and completely oil painted portrayal of the troubled artist's final days.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is your standard run-of-the-mill action/adventure film. Good for the school holidays, and good as a stand alone film. As a sequel though, it strays from the original.
