MadamSarcastra, over & out.
I haven't watched Shape of Water, probably won't, not really interested in it....Are "Shape of water" and "Blade runner 2049" worth watching? (I found them in translation and haven't watched yet)..... But i like the plot.....and music.
But I saw Blade Runner 2049 (Jer bought it).... It's was OK, IMO... I'm not a fan of Ryan Gosling. And as a sci-fi detective thriller, there's not much of a guessing game... very predictable... again, IMO.
Have you seen the original Blade Runner (1982) - IMDb ?? If not, start with that....
