Our Winner:

  • First Man (Crowley, Lucas) – In any period piece the job of a production designer is to take you back to that time in a way that you never question its authenticity. First Man is a criminally overlooked film in the other other categories, but in its pure visuals and sets it stands apart.

The Academy Award Winner:

  • Black Panther

MovieViews Reviews:

Black Panther 2018 Dispenses with almost all of the Marvel tropes to deliver a tight and focussed origin story in a beautifully realised world. At last we have a superhero film dialled back down to 10. Gordon 8
Black Panther 2018 One of the most unique Marvel films to date with more realism than most, tremendous visuals and some great characters, but it is let down a little by a rather mediocre villain and the occasionally heavy-handed socio-political undertones. Mat 7
First Man 2018 A wonderful biopic that is clearly about the man and not the mission. Don't expect lots of glory shots of rockets or planets, just a man and his single minded ambition. Gordon 9
Mary Poppins Returns 2018 Does a remarkable job of feeling like an extension of the original. Blunt is tremendous when singing, but loses her way with the spoken parts. Gordon 7
Roma 2018 The deliberately mundane story of a house maid. I was struggling to see what the critics had seen in the film until a scene that singularly blew me away (waves). It was so wonderfully shot and acted that I fully welled up at the beauty and horror of it. Gordon 7
The Favourite 2018 A quirky period tale of two cousins fighting for the attentions of the Queen. Coleman and Stone are superb and the direction inventive, but the story sags quite heavily before a polarising end. Gordon 8
