Monster of the Day #1686

A Gillman love story? Del Toro, you magnificent bastard.

Here’s to a great 2018, everyone! See some of you at the end of the month.

    I hope this doesn’t end with her setting him free and him killing and eating her.

    ‘You want to go out for sushi again!!?!?! For crying out loud, it’s the seventh time in a row!!!! Mexican, Italian, Chinese, anything else please!!!!’

  • I’d be more interested if I wasn’t half convinced this will be another Humans Are the Real Monsters movie.

    Take care of GalaxyJane for me Ken.

    So, Happy-Go-Lucky Meets The Creature From The Black Lagoon, essentially?

    Going by what I’ve read about this film, that’s pretty much it.

    It also involves America in the 50’s, so you got a heavy dose of ‘Oh that silly Red Scare’ in there too, or so the online reviews I’ve read have said.

    While there is a concern regarding the Russians, I didn’t feel like it was presented the way you describe. There is a definite “Humans are the Real Monsters” component, but it really only comes forth in one main character, and a couple of other minor ones. Most of the characters are good, or at least decent, people.

    I absolutely loved it. While everyone is great, Sally Hawkins and Doug Jones steal the show. The style and cinematography were fantastic, as you’d expect from del Toro, and once again it gave me that feeling of a modern fairy tale, like Pan’s Labyrinth did.

    I am glad to hear that the reviews I read were not entirely accurate. Thanks.

    I absolutely echo the Rev’s sentiments — I loved this movie.
