    New Guillermo del Toro movie: The Shape of Water

    I already love Guillermo del Toro's movies, but I'm especially excited for his new movie because based on the trailer it looks like it's about a women falling in love with an aquatic creature that looks like Abe Sapien.

    I know!!! I really can't wait! It's supposed to be super dark and sultry and kind of a next level Beauty and the Beast but with a sea creature instead of a furry one!

    So pumped. Del Toro is willing to make weirder movies than a lot of Hollywood. The ideas of a romance with a character that isn't sexy is totally out of the question for a lot of studios.

    This looks awesome, but I don't understand why it's rated R! Why why why do filmmakers have to go and ruin a movie that looks amazing with something like that?!

    How does R-rated content (or an R-rating, some movies get it for a really stupid reason) automatically ruin a movie?

    I think I was being a way too harsh saying it ruins the entire movie, what I was trying to say was, having sex and nudity is completely unnecessary for anything. (plot advancement, character development, ect.) I don't think ruins the movie, it just has no need for any R rated content.

    The r-rating comes from the sex scene, where the fish man and the woman who rescued him are finally together without any glass between them so it is a rather large plot advancement piece.
