Seriously. Best movie I've seen all year and rivals Pan's Labyrinth for Del Toro's best piece of work. It's fucking genius.

It's a good sequel to Creature. Are we pretending this is a sequel to Creature from the Black Lagoon?

I also adored this movie (best of 2017 thus far, and I don't see anything unseating it in the next few weeks). The bizarre mixture of genres and tone shouldn't have worked, but they do, to amazing effect.

It totally could be. I mean, I was predisposed to like it because of that but really it's so much more than a Creature movie. I've been wanting Del Toro to make a great movie along the lines of Pan's Labyrinth or The Devil's Backbone for years now. The guy is a master but movies like Pacific Rim or even Hellboy don't show him at his best. They're fun as hell (both Hellboy movies are personal favorites), but I really wanted him to knock another one out of the park. He totally did it with this one.

Eager to see this. Cary's recommendation carries some weight, too, because he's not a jackass like you are, person reading this.

I still resent that you said I had bad taste in films to the 4 other people watching your live-stream. To be fair, I can't remember if that was 3-beer Shoe or 7-beer shoe.

Hold onto that feeling. Let it eat a hole in your belly. Then, one day when the weather is beautiful but it smells like rain is coming, take a trip east and murder me in my driveway.

Did you see this yet, Shoe? My daughter and I are going back for a second viewing this weekend.
