“It’s like a shit baby that I laid out there.”
All week I’ve been looking forward to Friday and our annual rewatch of 2001, and then as the hubs and I were sitting down about to start The Shape of Water he turns to me and goes, “oh fuck, it’s Hal’s birthday!” And I was like, “oh fuck, it’s Hal’s birthday!!!”
So, here we are again. My notes for the yearly rewatch. Just like in my previous reviews this one is just my thoughts as I’m watching the film.
No one does Stephen King like Frank Darabont. He even included a nice little nod to The Dark Tower in the beginning of the film when you see Thomas Jane's character painting Roland and the Tower in a field of roses. You can tell he's a true fan.
The way he handles the story is excellent. The humans get so crazy and so primitive they make the monsters almost inconsequential. Marcia Gay Harden was just brilliant. I'd take the mist…
