    i can give you a better and shorter review. if you like watching a mute woman go to work, masturbating in the bathtub, falling in love with a half fish thing and in the end fucking the damn thing. Then this is your movie. Thats it, the end.

    After finally seeing I can say that this was 100% not my type of movie, don’t get me wrong, the visuals, prosthetic work and acting were all great, it was just way too artsy for me

    I saw this movie with my mom and entire family, and it was one of the most awkward things I have ever endured.. nothing like watching a fish man screw a mute.

    Gorgeous, yes, some good performances..yes. But that does not make a good movie. It was so predictable and not original in any way. You knew what was gonna happen 10 minutes in the movie. You knew what was gonna be the deal with the scars 10 minutes in the movie. Give me Free Willy any day, cause that's basically what they did here...they just threw in a creature of the black lagoon in the mix. De Toro dissapointed me yet again.....

    The scene where the guy rips his re-attached fingers off is one of the darkest things ever filmed.

    I know I'm late. But, Shape of Water didn't deserve the Oscar. Three Billboards is better.

    I give up, I can't grasp you at all. I was sure you would dislike this movie, sure you were going to pick this movie apart like a pack of starving piranha on a rotisserie chicken in a small tank. But no! I watch you to understand what you see and don't see (I like to write and you actually help me in this feat), but you confuse the hell out of me when you do this sort of thing! Don't tell anyone, I will deny, deny, DENY, but I did not care for the remake of "IT", it seemed quite cheesy to me and again, you liked it! Sigh. I give up!

    The fact that you actually like this movie is pure proof that you are an true fan of beastiality. People like you don't deserve to have a TVclip channel, yet alone a life. This is why TVclip is going down hill as it is.

    I wondered beforehand if this movie was safe to see with my mom. It was not.
    I really liked it though. I am slightly surprised that it won best picture, but Im also happy that it did. It kinda broke the monotony of best picture winners, and its truly a unique film.

  • Dandypanty
    Dandypanty Month ago

    I don't get the whole masturbation stuff. Why was that in the film? To show that she was horny? Okay.. Then what was the deal with the homosexual scene? What did that add to the film? What was the deal with the painting? It kept coming up but I never figured how it came into play. I feel like the movie built up the relationship with the mute woman and black lady then completely forgot about it. I feel like the gay mans character was completely unnecessary. The black woman should have been her room mate. And lastly I feel like they should have spent more time developing the bad guy. Why did he have to be sleazy? Again, so many things in the film I felt added nothing to the character or story. The only character I really cared for was the monster. I just wanted to see him learn to communicate with the woman. The sex stuff was like that movie Splice. Totally weird and just unnecessary. I bought it on blu ray so I'll definitely watch it again to see what I'm missing but I don't see this as award winning at all except for the style and atmosphere.

    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.

    Personally, didn't like that this movie was shot in 1000 frames per second. It felt like a bad soap opera. The story was decent but didn't move me emotionally, couldn't really relate to any of the characters. Just didn't do anything for me emotionally or visually. Makeup, costume, production design, and music were awesome though.

  • Benny26
    Benny26 3 months ago

    It's a predictable, eye rolling cliched film that's been done to death before in many ways. Acting and set design was well done but that was it.
    He rammed it full of "artsy" stuff like with the 60s music and dancing, but it was just to sucker the judges into thinking this film is meaningful and has some sort of underlying message. They even have two scenes just to tell you "being gay is alright" and "treating black people differently is bad"....just eye rolling.

    This movie is special for me. I always feel a void (Aspie, fat, shy, geek... The anti-ladies for a lot of women) that I try to cover. I saw this movie and I could understand all the characters, because They also try to feel their own void, a void that grows up every day of their lives.

  • Michael Cherne
    Michael Cherne 3 months ago

    Stuckman, you got way too artsy fartsy on this one. it was hellboy lll at best. Please at least admit it had no business winning best picture, or even nominated. We know the real reason it won. This may be top 10 worst movies of all time. Good lord son, stop looking so deep to attempt to find something good about this garbage. It bombed at the box office because viewers fell asleep half way threw, and nobody (but you) give a rats ass about the "beautiful production design". Just entertain us. and don't think for a second you could flood a 2nd floor apartment in the 60's. And how is sex possible?

  • kaine08
    kaine08 3 months ago

    I don't see what was so "good" about this move. Del Toro always produces beautiful, artistic movies, but nothing that any character, other that the artist neighbor did anything that would remotely occur in real life. Really? A woman is going to sex it up with a fish man? In a time of explosive racism, a black woman is going to risk getting "disappeared" in a government facility? Mute janior is going to risk her life to share a boiled egg with a creature that just tried to eat a man? This was actually painful to watch because of all the nonsensical decisions made by the characters. Whole bathroom filled up with water...yeah right. I get it. It's artistic, but come one. Inject a little bit of reality.

    I wish you had some type of podcast or video where you'd go in depth into your reviews, with spoilers and stuff, because there's so many things that are not clear and sometimes is hard to get your point of view, like when you talked about the "cheesy" moments of this movie, I wished you had explained them better.

    Did you comment on the anti American anti straight white male slander in this film? Don’t really see how you can give this movie such a good review when there are comments in this movie that basically say america is shit and have the white male character be racist and abusive . I just don’t understand and it’s been said before but if the villain was a minority it wouldn’t have even gotten nominated

    I honestly thougt this movie was Ok at most. My biggest problem is that it´s not original at all (It´s a shameless rip off of Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain mixed with The Beauty and the Beast and every "omg I need to hide/save this creature/alien from government" film). Characters are supposed to be very interesting but end up being shallow and almost childish (except maybe for Jenkins´s character) I felt like I was watching a Disney movie at times. Its a cute film with great visuals (because Amélie had great visuals) but Best Motion Picture? No way.

    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?
