Two big movies are out this week and don’t forget it’s going to be Valentine’s, so what better kind of movie than a heartfelt, emotional, stylish forbidden love tale. Racking up a whole host of awards and nominations is The Shape of Water. Coming from acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro, things aren’t exactly straightforward. Set in 1960s America it follows Elisa – mute and isolated from normal life. She finds love while working as a cleaner at a secret government facility – only the object of her affections is a Black Lagoon-esque creature. Take out the supernatural element and you have a pretty regular against the odds love story. As it is, it’s a movie to watch with an open mind – there are some definite WTF moments.

Marvel expands its hugely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe once again with Black Panther. After his brief but important debut in Captain America: Civil War we return to T’Challa’s (Black Panther) home, the hidden futuristic city of Wakanda. Following the death of his father T’Challa must take his rightful position as king but he is soon challenged by an old foe and his secretive kingdom faces exposure to the outside world.
