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 4
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 3.5
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 4.5
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 3.5
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 3.5
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 4
