PROS & CONS: Disaster Artist, Just Getting Started, Shape of Water, Darkest Hour

A thoroughly unhelpful guide to this week's newish releases

-

THE DISASTER ARTIST

PROS:

Critics aren't TEARING IT APART

Audiences giving it hi marks

Good to see that Tommy can poke fun at himself. Wiseau serious?

CONS:

Rated Chris R

-

JUST GETTING STARTED

PROS:

Cast not on Twitter, but they've got Facebook down!

Rated AARPG-13

CONS:

High want-to-see rating, but that's in reference to myopic target audience's desire to avoid cataracts

Rotten Tomatoes score of 78. No wait, that's the average age of the cast.

-

THE SHAPE OF WATER

PROS:

High Rotten Tomatoes score negated by low viscosity

CONS:

Bound to tank

Hasn't even won an Oscar yet

Water could theoretically take shape of Affleck

-

DARKEST HOUR

PROS:

Gary adept at playing oldman

Primed for an Oscar run

CONS:

Best viewed just before dawn

Movie prone to hyperbole, often making a mountain out of a Churchill
