Mark Searby Film Review 16th Feb 2018

Fridays mean movies here at Phoenix FM and our resident critic, Mark Searby, gave us his verdict on these:

Black Panther – it’s another Marvel release and actually a project originally mooted by Wesley Snipes back in 1992, but after years of development hell, it’s finally been made and is out this week.

The Shape of Water stars Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky) and Michael Shannon in this fantasy-meets-romance offering. Set in the 1960s during the Cold War, it follows a mute woman who falls in love with a humanoid-amphibian creature.

Loving Vincent looks at the life of artist Vincent Van Gogh with live actors “painted over” to produce a stunningly animated piece of work. An interesting mix of stars include: Jerome Flynn, Chris O’Dowd, John Sessions and Saoirse Ronan.

My Little Pony: The Movie means it must be half-term and it’s difficult to be harsh on a children’s film unless the question is: “Why did they wait 30 years to make this?”.
