This movie SUCKED! I have requested a refund for the $5.99 I paid to watch this piece of crap. Holy moly! I did watch the whole thing and the only part I enjoyed was the ending. If I had seen the Oscar noms/wins first I would NEVER have watched this movie. The last time I agreed with an Oscar pick for Best Movie was in 1962 for Lawrence of Arabia. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS MOVIE!

The SUCKY Shape of WaterReviewed bycasseurekaVote: 1/10
Whether it be Creature from the Black Lagoon, Beauty and the Beast, Edward Scissorhands, or even Her from a few years ago, movies about forbidden love are a common theme in romantic films. And if done right, they could be extremely effective. The Shape of Water stands as a fresh take on that tale, and yes it works really well as a romance between a government controlled creature and a mute custodian.
Driven by emotional performances, The Shape of Water feels simple in premise considering we have seen similar stories (mentioned above) almost every year. But it all comes down to execution. Director Guillermo del Toro frames this story as a good guy-bad guy situation, but certainly rounds out each character with emotions and just enough depth to care about every scenario.
In that way, the original screenplay by GDT and Vanessa Taylor could be among the best written this year. Every scene has importance and the 2 hour runtime is perfectly paced. There are also several actors who turn in Oscar caliber performances including lead Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, Richard Jenkins, and Michael Stuhlbarg. I would have to go through the other films and put together a list of Oscar predictions, but all actors mentioned above have a chance at a nominations.
GDT has a knack for making gorgeous looking films and The Shape of Water is no different. Everything from the creature played by Doug Jones to the production design and cinematography, this is easily one of the best looking films of the year. To that note, I don't really have a complaint with the film. Performances, writing, directing, visuals, and romance are all way above par. These uniquely executed films are always something I will cherish, and I'm glad GDT was able to bring this to screens, especially before the Fox-Disney merger. It really makes you wonder if we will even get these types of movies once that deal goes down. One can only hope.
Honestly it was a really good movie. It has a very childish theme to it, but in an adult content setting. Something you wouldn't expect to work, but it did.
I don't get the bad reviews. It was a different kind of movie with a happy ending that delivered a pretty good message that love knows no bounds. Yeah the fish man wasn't the most attractive, but the main character didn't care about that. They were both lacking something and they gave each other what the other was missing.
It was a super sweet movie and I even got to laugh a couple of times. It deserves the Oscars it got and everyone who disagrees honestly just needs to get their heads out of their butts. This isn't a movie that goes "YAY BEASTIALITY" it's a movie that promotes love past looks.
