Man, ‘Hostiles’ made a huge jump this week, ‘Maze Runner’ over threw ‘Jumanji’ and ‘Greatest Showman’ is still holding steady in the middle of the pack.

I saw ‘The Post’, ‘Darkest Hour’ and ‘The Shape of Water’ over the weekend.

All three movies were very good. I don’t see ‘The Post’ winning any major awards, but I could see Gary Oldman, and Guillermo del Toro taking Best Actor and Director easily.
