HEADS-UP FOR CAT-LOVERS: Don't waste time & money on "The Shape of Water"
Permalink  
 


And fuck the ridiculous 13 Oscar nominations. It is an over-rated, worthless piece of shit, with excesses of blood, gore, violence, torture, and gratuitous sex scenes.

The worst of all : A pet cat is attacked and eaten by the monster. Its head is torn off. and the mangled body lies bleeding on the carpet. While its owner is having his wounded arm attended to (the monster clawed it), the bloody remains of the kitty are clearly visible in the background.

Lucinda and I were both very much upset... had I been forewarned, I would not have gone, and she wouldn't have either.

I have no one to blame except my goddamned fucking c-word of a sister, who recommended this atrocity. She thinks she knows what I like. Truth be told, she doesn't even know me anymore...and probably never really has. Growing up under the same roof doesn't mean jackshit.

Had I ever lived in California, I'd have spent most of my life in prison, for I'd have probably killed somebody in Hollywood many, many years ago. Or blown something up. Or set it on fire. If Rocket Man nukes SoCal, I won't cry much. I have relatives there. Some even work in The Industry. Tough noogies for them. I wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire. They help to create trash like this.

Spread the word. Don't let people be scammed into going to this horror show. They will want their two hours back. I sure as hell do! 

Worse still, the cat looked a lot like this one...

My cats were fond of tearing the heads off of rats, birds and whatever else they managed to catch. Apparently they regarded the brains as something of a delicacy.

 It is actually worth watching Dee. The scene with the cat was pretty short and appeared to be a misunderstanding. I don't know about the sex scenes, maybe they were deleted by Pirate Bay. Or maybe it was because the movie was set in the 1960s when sex was confined to the back row of the cinema rather than the movie screen.

Anyway, I thought that the whole thing was pleasantly schmultzy rather than horrific.

You react as though someone ripped a real cat to pieces. You are truly over sensitive. My advice - stick to Disney films in the future.

And how does anyone know for sure that isn't what happened?  It's not likely, but who are any of us to put anything past the movie industry?  Folks horrified by and disgusted with even a hint of mistreatment of or violence toward anybody, but particularly creatures with whom we enjoy keeping company, aren't oversensitive.  We're demonstrating one of the better aspects of being human.

 It could be Kitty, but it was a pretty brief scene and there was not much to see, so I doubt that it was a real cat. Personally, I like to think that it was Charlie. His head is full of childlike spite so would not be missed. However, not wishing to spoil the plot too much, it was effectively a confrontation beteeen a sea creature and a moggie in which the fish kills the cat. A joke, but clearly one wasted on our resident misery guts.

It is actually a film well worth seeing, being gently schmultzy and with the god guys winning in the end. Take Nytram. You will both enjoy yourselves.

 "Take Nytram"? To a theater? With people? The horror.

We'll wait for the video, save on tickets and popcorn.

And you can also fast-forward through the kitty-killing scenes, as well. Wish I could have.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I also have a question for Boosewell. What does "schmultzy" mean?

Overly sentimental or romantic? Sad? Emotional? Cheesy? Corny? Excessively maudlin and mushy?

That's what "schmaltzy" means in the States. Usually, it's used to describe certain kinds of music or film or art or writing.

Are the two words the same...or different?

"Schmaltz" is both German and Yiddish...it's the Yiddish word for "drippings"...cooking fat used in frying food...usually chicken fat.

Schemlze and geschmolzen mean melt and melted in German. And chicken fat is melted down when used in cooking, so I guess it came from those origins.

I have never seen "schmultzy" anywhere but on this board. Enlighten me...is it just the UK way of saying the other word?

 Good question.

To me schmultzy means sentimental, mostly with a positive context.

That said, a lot of Yiddish depends upon where you are. The few scraps that I have I picked up in London's East End, which is often a lot different from that spoken in Golders Green (North West London). And of course, once they are a few quid ahead of the game Jews are like anyone else. They tend to move to the better parts of Stanmore, talk like Jacob Rees Mogg and try to forget that grand dad came over in a herring barrel.

Found this review.

 

Review: Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-42954191

Apparently the director (Guillermo del Toro) made another movie called Pan's Labyrinth which is similarly considered to be the dog's bollocks.
