You should watch Bridge Of Spies. I enjoyed it more than The Post and it was as good as Spotlight.

The spy (same actor as the small boat owner in Dunkirk) had the line "will it help?" a couple of times and in its context it was quite funny. The spy and captain had the same determined, dourness about them.

While I wouldn't describe Dunkirk as a great film, I thought it was good. One thing that jumped out to me was how "clean" it was- imagine being in the filed, bombs exploding , falling down to take cover, etc etc., don't think one would look like one just stepped out for a morning stroll.

The "cleanliness" is one of the things I liked. But you're right, that part is not so realistic.

I did catch one scene where there was a quick pan in Weymouth (or some such town) and I saw a modern block of flats in the background.

I watched this last night Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - IMDb

I really enjoyed it, wouldn't surprise me if the lead female actress gets nominated for an Oscar.

Predictions after the event don't count.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - Awards - IMDb

About three weeks ago

I watched that Spanish movie last night. A couple of the subtitles did pass quickly.
At 39 minutes in I thought...hmmm...do I detect An Inspector Calls in this? I was close.

Oh I had no idea about the awards. I just presumed the Oscars were close because of all the screeners I have been downloading

They are close. I've never noticed more screeners around at award time, but then I'm so far behind I'm not always looking for newer movies.

We watched this last night The Shape of Water (2017) - IMDb

A bit weird, but not bad. A solid 6/10 from me.

Have seen the third one and agree that it's not as good as the first two. Just constant battle scenes and a few too many cheesy quips from Simon Peg. I did like the space metropolis though (reminiscent of Elysium) but even that in these days of Sci Fi CGI wears thin relatively fast. Zoe Saltana, on the other, as much screen time as possible please!

Things must be weird around your way if this was only 'a bit weird'...
It was mental! But myself and my girlfriend did really enjoy it!

Not as weird as 'the gimp' in Pulp Fiction. Now that was facking weird.

Really good movie that. Should be a few Oscars there.

Written by the same guy responsible for the excellent Seven Psychopaths and In Bruges.
