Movie Breakdown: The Shape Of Water

Pre-Screening Stance: I’ve been anxiously awaiting Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape Of Water ever since that first teaser rolled out way back when.  It looks like it has somewhat of a Pan’s Labyrinth vibe, and I’m all about that. Post-Screening Ramble: For me, The Shape Of Water ranks just under Pan’s Labyrinth when it comes [...]
