No I didn't use any plot spoilers. I went on wiki and also a couple of other critiques of the movie. I didn't post anyone else's words - just my own. And most likely, people will be more curious about the film because of what I wrote. I'm sure people research these things before they go see any movie. I'll definitely watch it when it comes on TV but won't spend money to watch it.BaroqueAgain1 wrote:Ballerina, I'm sorry that you read some synopsis on Shape of Water that provides only a Cliff Notes take on the movie.
Spoilers on plot points are something I try to avoid, even if I'm having to wait a while to see a movie. That paragraph you just posted does no justice to the way the movie unfolds. And you may have just 'spoiled' it for those who have not yet seen the movie.
Is it a fantasy? Yes. Maybe fable is a better word...and IMHO it was fabulous.
If you just hate fantasy, maybe this movie isn't for you, but please don't make your decision based on those plot spoilers.
Of the 9 movies nominated, I saw Dunkirk, Darkest Hour, Three Bridges, and Get Out. I would have been pleased if any one of the first 3 were awarded Best Picture. Get Out was one great big waste of time, in my opinion - of course.
