As Oscar season is now here, we decide to take a look at a handful of films that have gained Oscar nominations, as well as a handful that really hoped they were Oscar nominated. We start with Guillermo del Toro’s beautiful tale of love with the strangest beings in The Shape of Water. Steven Spielberg gets topical with #RealNews in The Post. Gary Oldman slaps on the latex and make up and wobbles those chins in Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour. Taylor Sheridan makes an explosive directorial debut with his essential Wind River (be mindful, this review has spoilers). The French flick Raw gets looked at under a microscope. While, finally, we wrap up with one of the ‘worst’ films of 2017… Collateral Beauty. There’s spoilers in that discussion too, but really, you need to know what’s going on with that madness.
