We review three huge movies on this week’s show, starting with trilogy-closing romance Fifty Shades Freed and Guillermo del Toro‘s poetic awards season favourite The Shape of Water. Then, we move on to Black Panther, which adds a welcome shot of diversity to the Marvel Cinematic Universe by virtue of a majority black cast and a completely new cultural tone.
In the news section, we chat about the first full trailer for Pixar’s Incredibles 2, the revelation that Paddington director Paul King could make a Willy Wonka movie and the fallout from the WGA Awards. To round things off, Patrick leads a quiz based on the apparently fertile topics of fish and panthers.
