As is our annual tradition, we sat down and watched the most recent winner for Best Picture. This year, it is a genre film by Guillermo Del Toro – The Shape of Water! Semi-regular guest newbie Barb Lind re-joins us to watch this fable about a fish man. We talk about Doug Jones because you kind of need to do that if you are going to be talking about a movie by Guillermo Del Toro as well as the rest of the cast. We also bring up being hit in the fact with a 2×4 more than once. Because that’s the kind of podcast we run here.
Up next, we will be watching another film nominated for Best Picture in 2018 – Get Out!
