Despite an unusual and intriguing storyline and visual appeal, Oscar-nominated movie The Shape of Water is too slow moving and obvious to really deserve that nomination.
In fact, this film is very similar to the Tim Burton classic Edward Scissorhands — but nowhere near as good.
Far worse, this movie trashes the American dream and the nuclear family, and anyone who is a straight white male is a villain.
Even a Russian communist spy is held up as a hero.
I wish I was joking...
