Three sentence movie reviews: The Shape of Water
I wasn’t going to like this movie and I didn’t.* As I told my workmate: I don’t do torture and I don’t do animals in peril and this movie had a lot of both. However, in pulling apart the pieces that make the whole, I can report that the movie had excellent acting, good story and awesome set design.
Where watched: Hollywood Theatre with S. North, who didn’t like it either. (She doesn’t do fantasy.)
*Even the previews of Guillermo del Toro movies creep me out. Pan’s Labyrinth, I’m looking at you![Side note: This is the third movie I’ve watched in a month where Michael Stuhlbarg has a role. He was the dad in Call Me By Your Name; the owner of the New York Times in The Post, and he plays a scientist in this film. In all of these roles he is very different, almost unrecognizable. Good job Mr. Stuhlbarg.]

I agree with you. I am 100% no thank you for this. Glad people like it, but it is not for me.
I’m about to go to an Oscar Party where it will probably win oodles of awards. Sigh.
(Again, not a bad movie, just not for me.)
