    This is a nice “safe“ review that completely ignores the political bias that the film has.
    Now I don’t mind a polemic no matter what side it is on, I love They Live for example, but this movie doesn’t even present it in a clever manner it is just hammer time on your head with the liberal messages over and over and over. It’s a well-crafted film and I love Del Toro But subtle this ain’t and I found it rather insulting at how it spoonfed it’s politics to you as if you were a child who couldn’t possibly understand subtle messages unless it is shoved RIGHT IN YOUR FACE.
    I mean, yeah, we get it, white man bad, straight people bad, capitalism bad, christianity bad, people of color good, gay people good, etc. etc. etc.
    That ham fisted handling of liberal politics is the only reason this film won best picture and everybody knows it. Otherwise it wouldn’t have been given a second thought by the academy.

    This is one of the best movies of all time but only for those who can think critically about things more complex the the common CGI block busters/ mindless action

    i was so disappointed with this movie, i expected it to be an original Del Toro film, but instead i wasted 2 hours of my life watching a beauty and the beast and La La Land "Wannabe", music didn't fit at all, and the amount of coincidence in this movie is unfucking believable, i felt so stupid after watching it, too many holes and just plain fucking stupid.

    Doug Jones was great as Abe Sapien in the 2004 Hellboy movie but I was always a fan of that character because he was voiced by David Hyde Pierce of Frasier fame, a show I grew up with and still love. Learning that David wanted to be uncredited out of respect for Doug Jones' performance makes me respect the man even more.

    This movie was a pedantic, boring mess. The only thing that it had going for it was visuals. On top of the characters being impossible to connect with, my stomach turned at the idea of this chick having sex with some sea creature. I don't understand how this one picture of the year. Guillermo del Toro is seriously one of the most overrated writers in Hollywood

    • Johnlindsey289
      Johnlindsey289 11 months ago

      What do you think of Pan's Labyrinth or Devil's Backbone? would you compare him to Terry Gilliam?
      I see nothing wrong with human X xeno/furry/mutant/cyborg romance if it's between two human level intelligent consenting adult beings since i see xenos, furries, mutants and cyborgs as people who are and look different. I mean the 80s Beauty and the Beast TV show with Ron Perlman, Alien Nation, Doctor Who, Bojack Horseman, Wolf Children (Hana and her wolf-man husband who are the parents), Cheetah X Batman on Justice League TAS (even fanfiction that ships them as a married couple complete with having a family), Regular show, Star Wars, Star Trek, Mass Effect, Swamp Thing and Abigale Arcane, Beast and Carly on X-Men TAS, Hepzibah/Corsair in Marvel, Skyrim, Hatton Slayden's artworks of human males with xeno/furry/cyborg/mutant females, Blade Runner 1 & 2's Rachel and Deckar etc. all worked better since they have characters who are adults on the same mentality level?
      While the asset in this movie has the intelligence of a child or chimpanzee and was being taken advantanged of?

    I was very disappointed. The performances were great, and it had potential, but overall I felt the story was poorly written- particularly in terms of pacing. Half the stuff that happened in the film felt unnecessary and arbitrary. It also felt like they crammed as many 60s cold war cliches in as they could. It felt like David Cage wrote it. Parts of it also didn't make sense, like how the cleaning staff was allowed anywhere NEAR the creature after it bites Strickland's fingers off.

  • Jon R.

    The mute woman has sex with the fish man but it's OK because he has human intelligence? So if a movie has a dog, or horse, or dolphin that's intelligent as a human, it's OK if a woman has sex with it?

    • Johnlindsey289
      Johnlindsey289 11 months ago

      More like gorilla level intelligence! do you think Abe Sapien and the elf-woman in Hellboy 2 plus the human X xeno romances in the Mass Effect games/Skyrim games, Vastra and Jenny on Doctor Who, Bojack Horseman's human X furry romance even a human man with a deer furry woman who produced 2 kids, Wolf Children's Hana and her wolf-man husband, Alien Nation, Cheetah X Batman on Justice League TAS etc. all worked better on human X xeno/furry/mutant/cyborg romance better as they have consenting adults of human level intelligence and all as the asset has an animalistic mind that is childlike?

    I personally think this movie is Awesometacular. I think it deserves it's Best Picture win. I would've preferred to see Three Billboards win it, but I'm totally okay with The Shape of Water's win.
