Extremist Movie Debate: The Shape of Water

In Extremist Movie Debate, a coin flip decides who loves it and who hates it. They then debate it on the fly. This episode? The Shape of Water

Oftentimes, hilarity ensues (or just offensive arguments). As always, SPOILERS AHEAD. 


The Shape of Water [official trailer]

Guillermo Del Toro made a movie about a woman falling in love with a fish man. Nathan hates this movie because at its core it is nothing more than a genre film ripping off handfuls of other movies. Del Toro is playing copycat and the plagiarism lawsuits coming out prove that. Ethan loves it because of the way two vastly different people (well, different species) are drawn together because of what they have in common, and their relationship shows psychological complexities that make for a satisfying movie. Unpaid Intern Jeff moderates.
