    The Shape of Water

    “The Shape of Water” is partly a code-scrambled fairy tale, partly a genetically modified monster movie, and altogether wonderful. Guillermo del Toro, the writer and director, is a passionate genre geek. Sometimes his enthusiasm can get the better of his discipline, producing misshapen (but never completely uninteresting) movies like “Pacific Rim” and “Crimson Peak.” At his best, though — in “The Devil’s Backbone,” “Pan’s Labyrinth” and now, at last, again — he fuses a fan’s ardor with a romantic sensibility that is startling in its sincerity. He draws on old movies, comic books, mythic archetypes and his own restless visual imagination to create movies that seem less made than discovered, as if he had plucked them from the cultural ether and given them color, voice and form.

    "Please waste your money" - loser reviewer/overposter. The movie is not one star, it's actually excellent.

    You have no wife. You're the same loser that keeps posting the one star reviews, for your own twisted reason. Too much time on your hands.

    Over-rated; some good acting, but stupid, dark storyline. Contrary to one reviewer's lie, there was no rape scene in this movie. Thank goodness Octavia Spencer was there to lighten the mood.

    I enjoyed this movie!! Intriguing, suspenseful and until you "get" the ending of the movie do you understand the Psychological and sensual attraction between "beauty and the beast"....

    Just so tasteless and predictable. Trip to the bathroom during movie was best part.
