G.D.T The King Of Making Lovable Monsters
Overall: 5
The Shape Of Water shows a love story that transcends time. The film is spectacular and looks amazing and picturesque at all times. The story that G.D.T chooses to tell with the monster under the water and Eliza is one that transcends time and all other factors. If anything, it proves that love transcend all mediums. The acting was spectacular. To have a lead in the film be a mute character and yet still have a compelling character to love truly speaks to the caliber of acting shown in this film. The supporting cast is great too. Octavia Spencer and Michael Stuhlbarg is perfect in their roles and Michael Shannon once again does a performance so threatening that it chills you to the bones. I would recommend this film for those who are able to keep an open mind and can appreciate films. I think those who cannot open their minds to different possibilities that may be out of the ordinary will have a tough time enjoying this film and actually really understand the film for what it is.

Enter with an open mind and be amazed
Overall: 5
Guillermo del Toro did an amazing job creating this modern fairytale. Perhaps it’s not for everyone but if you’re looking for something different from the usual Hollywood action prequel sequels you shouldn’t miss this. The cast was amazing, the set design takes you to a different world, the story is simple and satisfying in the end.

The creature made me remind the same water creature in Hell Boy, a movie from the same Director many years ago. I try to make this as a story before Hell Boy, while this creature has no human character, can’t talk. This movie is amazing and surprising me while recently there is no good romance story between human and other species, means it’s a new and creatively storyline. The only scene I don’t like is the girl singing part, although that part actually telling people that how she feel if she can talk or even sing. But the scene is just like a bump, suddenly feel like a musical movie.

Oscar Winning Film

After watching this movie, you will see why it won an Oscar. It’s a unique film that is more intricate and detailed, with a mute main character.
