    The Shape of Water

    ★★★½

    It was okay for what it was, which is to say not really my thing. I kinda knew what I was letting myself in for, but I left feeling like I doubt I'll ever watch it again. Not really sure where the 12 Oscar nominations came from but I guess they don't really mean much anymore.

    Thirty years of waiting for this has been well worth it. George Miller has surpassed every single expectation I ever had for Mad Max 4, with an incredible event movie in every sense of the word.
    Imagine the last 20 minutes of Mad Max 2, times 10, it's really THAT exciting.
