    I think three billboards was better and more visceral than this overrated fantasy movie! There were other fantasy movies that touched us so hardcore than it shouldn’t be compared to them (take LOTR for example)...

    After reading the fabulous novel I thought the movie surely must be great. Wrong. So little character development, and far too much green on the set. Had I not read the book, perhaps I may have enjoyed the film more.

    Not the classic Beauty and the Beast.
  • A Beautiful Fairytale

    del Toro's execution of an innocent fairytale set in a less than inoocent world is a delicate balancing act that pierces the viewer's cynicism and leaves them inspired and connected to their child-like wonder. The tone and sentimentality reminds me of Cinema Paradisio or Amelie, but The Shape of Water grapples with much more complex themes, such as prejudice and cruelty, and still manages to leave me charmed.
  • Phenomenal! Breathe Taking Cinematography.

    Del Toro is at the top of his craft with The Shape of Water. Breathe taking cinematography compliment a heart felt story. The Shape of Water is a modern day fairy tale that blurs the lines of fantasy and reality. It’s by far my favorite movie of the past decade. Bravo!

    This movie is so beautiful! The entire movie is Romantic. A definite on my list of top favorite love stories. I cried, I laughed, then I cried some more. True Love knows no bounds in both friendships and intimate relationships in this movie. Loyalty to the end. Just jaw droppingly amazing.

    Three Billboards was a far better film in every which way but this was beautifully directed and produced. Still not a best picture winner IMO.
