The Shape of Water (15) – what’s it about? A girl who works at a top secret research centre makes an unexpected friend.
This is the age old story of girl meets fish, girl falls in love with fish, girl…well that’s enough of that. I really don’t know where to start with this one; I just don’t know how to describe it. I suppose it’s a story of people really and the rights of people. It’s quite a deep film when you think about it and I was a little disturbed thinking about it a bit too much. I think I came out and liked it, but I’m still not 100% sure - it was weird but good but I don’t know…well the good seems to outweigh the average thoughts. I think it’s one of those though you’ll have to watch it and judge for yourself.
Black Panther (12) – what’s it about? Black Panther must stop a villain from using his people’s technology for evvvvvviiiiillllll.
So this is the next instalment of Marvel goodness. Another action packed comic book movie that does what it says on the tin really. A hero must stop a villain yadda yadda yadda – you know the drill in these movies. This one was all about Black Panther; of course he made his debut in Captain America: Civil War but it was good to see him now in his own movie to flesh out his story. I wouldn’t say this was an origin story but it does give you the lowdown and introduction to the history of the Black Panther and Wakanda. Though it’s a little more political than some of the other Marvel movies, don’t fear as it still has all your normal comic book goodness. If you love the Marvel universe you’ll probably love this one too :D
