What you can see at the cinema

Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro's latest offering, The Shape of Water , looks as weird and wonderful as his previous back catalogue. The Shape of Water stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg and Octavia Spencer.

The story in 1962 Baltimore and centres around a mute custodian in a high-security laboratory who falls in love with a humanoid-amphibian creature.

And if that doesn't pique your interest, I'm not sure what will.

Black Panther

There's an argument already for how Black Panther , Marvel Comic's latest blockbuster, has become one of the most hyped films of all time and early reviews from the critics suggest that everything about the film - it's plotting, theme, structure and acting performances - make it worthy of the attention.

There is of course an underlying pulse to this story. Away from it's entertainment value, Black Panther also promises to act as an important social and cultural landmark in an age where fair and even representation in Hollywood has been a hot potato.
