^ The book was over-the-top, but thrilling, maybe the best of the Harry Hole series. I didn't see the movie ... as I recall, reviews made it clear that it departed quite drastically from the book. Besides, it was shot in English with a mostly Hollywood cast. Why bother to film in Norway if you're not going to cast Norwegians?

The Snowman



Cant get out of the house today as England is snow bound  so I thought I'd give this a go..

Despite never having read any of the books I guessed the killer almost immeadiately.
That said, I still enjoyed it.. Fassbender is a great screen precense and one of those actors I think I could watch in almost anything..
I agree with KC that it semmed a little odd populating a film set in Norway and directed and acted in the style we've become acustomed to with these type of thrillers.. with American and British actors.. but I liked the film and thought it was amazing to look at too..

One thing... Did anyone bother to tell Val Kilmer he was actually  appearing in a movie..?? He seems to be totally unaware of the fact..

Boring.   Not as painful as sitting through Star Trek: The Motion Picture, but close.

The Shape of Water is bizarre in some ways but I liked it a lot. It was more humorous than I thought it would be.

Didn't like it at all.Del Toro's Pan's labyrinth is a masterpiece but,this one is a boring attempt to mix nostalgia , drama and political views through the conventions of a love story.

I was a fan of Pans and saw Shape of Water for that reason and also didnt like it. I dont understand why it won Best Picture.

I watched Wonder last night. I fpund it be be better than I expected. Its definitely a good family film with an emotionally involving set of characters and a teachable moment for young children.

The Florida Project
Directed by Sean Baker



Totally loved this slice of life movie set in the shadows of Walt Disney World.. .. amazing performances from all
especially Brooklynn Prince, Bria Vinaite and Willem Dafoe (nominated for best supporting actor) ...

A six year old girl living with her rebellious mother living in a motel trying to stay out of trouble and make ends meet..

Performances all round totally sold this film to me..
