Skip to comments."Shape of Water" Synopsis
Posted on 03/05/2018 7:04:15 AM PST by PJ-Comix
Creature From the Black Lagoon meets mute woman at a secret space project in Baltimore run by a 5-star general. They bond over hard boiled egges. They also fall in love and mate in a bathtub. Meanwhile a Redneck tortures the Creature with an Alabama Cattle Prod. Even though the Creature is supposed to be vital for space program research, all the scientists and the 5-star general allow the Redneck to continue torturing the creature. Meanwhile the Russkies attempt to kill the Creature via a kind-hearted Commie spy in the project who won't go along with the murder plot.
Creature escapes and Redneck is enraged because his job is on the line as fingers start rotting from gangrene. Redneck tracks down Creature and mute woman at the docks and shoots both. Creature kills Redneck as latter exclaims, "You really are a god!" Creature recovers from wound instantly then hops into ocean with mute woman who also recovers from wound quickly. They should live together for ever after but one big problem. How does she breath underwater? Instant solution is she grew a pair of gills on her neck. And now they can live happily in the sea forever after.
p.s. One subplot teaches audience that if you reject the advances of a gay person that means you are probably a mean racist who won't allow people of color to eat at a lunch counter.
Bored one day; wife and I went to see this; worst film I’ve ever seen!
hollywood gives their highest honor to a movie about a monster mating with a human girl and they expect us to take them seriously.
“Creature kills Redneck as latter exclaims, “You really are a god!”
Is there a Christian sub-plot here? (Haven’t seen it.)
“They also fall in love and mate in a bathtub.”
That does it for me. Today’s Hollywood has to raunchify everything they do.
This is ffrom y hubby:
My synopsis of “The Shape of Water” [with spoilers]:
A water and air breathing creature is captured in order to somehow further space research. White people are racist. A cleaning lady likes to give the creature food she brings to work. Men are sexist. The lab decides to cut open the creature because that is the only research technique they know. Christians are mentally unstable. Driven by a deep desire to to protect the sanctity of life, the cleaning lady and accomplices murder an innocent guard and escape with the creature. The worst mix is the straight-Christian-White-Male (SCWM). The woman performs bestiality with the creature. The only hope for a SCWM is to transcend his toxic masculinity by becoming gay, because gays are always good people. The cleaning lady and the creature swim away.
Give me a rerun of Megaforce if I have to see an awful movie.
I haven’t been to the movies in years. It seems I’ve missed nothing.
Haven’t seen the movie, but from your synopsis, it sounds completely stupid. Typical Leftist drivel. Movies are not a big thing in my life.
They couldn't even be bothered to use a believable costume so they recycled the clunky outfit from "Creature From The Black Lagoon."
Let’s get back to what audiences really want... flying motorcycles and spandex.
One subplot teaches audience that if you reject the advances of a gay person that means you are probably a mean racist who won’t allow people of color to eat at a lunch counter.
We get to avoid this movie altogether. Thanks!
This was about the stupidest excuse for entertainment I have ever had the misfortune to see. I dont understand what the Hollywood crowed saw in it since all the sex scenes involved people over 13 years old.
Will be interesting to see how the plagiarizing suit pans out. If it goes forward, who will be the defendants. Will the actors and others involved in the production be held accountable?
A remake of No Country For Old Green Tomatoes.
Just what we needed.
Thanks for the post. I just cancelled my Amazon pre-order.
Notice that the awards and the movies themselves are bizarre and have almost nothing to do with the life experiences or entertaining most Americans. Of the eight movies nominated for “Best Picture”, probably only two made any money.
Those two concepts are probably beyond most audiences now.
I like picking on that movie for many reasons. It’s my Plan 9 From Outer Space.
THanks for the synopsis. I was fairly sure I would never see this movie, but now I know that even if I lived 100 lifetimes I would never see this movie. UGH.
Wait. Did this POS win the golden eunuch for best picture last night?
“A brief summary of the major similarities of the two works:
Let Me Hear You Whisper AND The Shape of Water:
The main character is a quiet, introverted female custodian who works the graveyard shift in a laboratory.
Set in the 1960s during the Cold War, at a laboratory where experiments for military use are taking place.
The custodian discovers a tank with an aquatic creature who is being experimented on.
The custodian and the aquatic creature fall in love, a transformative love which enables both of them to be heard.
She wins his trust by sneaking food into the lab and feeding him.
She dances to music on a record with her mop while the creature looks on and their bond grows deeper.
She is treated in a dehumanizing way by her superiors at the laboratory.
She discovers that the scientists who run the lab want to use the creature as a military weapon if they can get him to cooperate but if not, he is to be vivisected for research purposes.
She decides to rescue the creature and release him to the sea by sneaking him out of the facility in a laundry cart.”
The major difference seems to be that in the play the creature is a dolphin, while in the movie the creature is the creature from the Black Lagoon, only sexy.
