Gary Oldman has played so many great roles. My favourite would have to be in Sid and Nancy- he was absolutely incredible in that film.

I love Sid and Nancy!!!! Great performance. His performance in the 5th Element sticks with me too.

He alluded to many films in the horror genre but I didn't think they overpowered the narrative, which I found to be original and full of symbolism. I thought the film was excellent, especially the ending! (I won't spoil it, but I'll just say, TSA!)

Coco was probably my favorite of the year! I heard someone say that if you don't cry during this movie then you must be a serial killer, and I agree wholeheartedly!

I thought a lot of the movies met my standard of a "good" movie, but few stood out. I've heard the most buzz about Ladybird but I just couldn't bring myself to see another coming of age story.

For the Oscars, I'm rooting for The Shape of Water (the most beautiful to watch) or Get Out (the most fun to watch).

I'm glad that Wonder Woman did well in theaters because I'm hoping for a second one that's even better!

Shape of Water is beautiful movie but I thought the movie was creepy, bizarre. There seemed to be too much sex scenes (masterbation...) that werenít necessary. It gave me a bad feeling. My friend didnít like it either. It seemed like the movie was promoting beastiality. Eliza ended up reminding me as someone from the Adams Family. I didnít find her to be this lovely human being. I thought she was a weirdo. This movie may win best picture because people want to see the director be honored but itís no where near as good as Pans Labyrinth. This movie and Three Billboards are the front runner s but I didnít like either of them. Good thing I donít watch or support the Oscars anymore.

Get Out was ok but my big problem with it was it didnít seem original at all. Even the ending with ďSunken PlaceĒ was just a rip off of ďthe furtherĒ from the Insidious movies.

Iím happy Wonder Woman did well too. I hope they make more superhero based on women. Captain Marvel is already on her way!

I forgot about Coco. This movie was a huge surprise to me. Yes, I hid my eyes and did cry at the end. I even bought the song. The movie was beautiful.

Thank you, Jondalar!

I liked Logan a lot too and thought it was a fitting conclusion. I didn't like Planet of the Apes as much as you did, but I could appreciate it as a film. I know that this sounds stupid, but I didn't gel with the fact that there weren't any human protagonists that could speak. I know that it was supposed to show that the apes had more humanity than the humans, but it was too much ape visually for me.

I liked The Last Jedi too, but I can understand why fans disliked it.

I'm a bit late to it...I've only just watched The Shape of Water. Overall I thought it was pretty good. In terms of bestiality- I think you may have missed the major point of the film.

Well glad you liked it. The main woman reminded me of someone from the Adams family. Watching her masterbate and have sex with the Black Lagoon creature gave me the creeps. Loved the art direction though.

I don't know whether you missed the little clues- she was supposed to be a bit odd- she was a mermaid.

Oh yes. She had supernatural water-controlling powers and matching scars on her neck that she'd had since she was a baby. Add in she was found in a river
