Elisa is a mute, isolated woman who works as a cleaning lady in a hidden, high-security government laboratory in 1962 Baltimore. Her life changes forever when she discovers the lab’s classified secret — a mysterious, scaled creature from South America that lives in a water tank. As Elisa develops a unique bond with her new friend, she soon learns that its fate and very survival lies in the hands of a hostile government agent and a marine biologist.

Finally I got to see the much talked and the winner of best movie at the Oscars, Shape of Water! And it was VERY GOOD! :D
I really love the way the movie was filmed, the practical scenes and effects, love that way of filmmaking. But about the movie it self… it very is special because it’s the music and the simple frames that makes this movie so good a long with a fantastic acting.
There isn’t much dialog but it’s thanks to the score and all the minor details that the camera captures, that makes it succeed.
If you are a daydreamer and love movies about hopeless love, I think you will enjoy it the most. It’s not a movie for everyone but I would still give it a shot if you just by the name of the movie and from what you’ve seen in the trailer, wouldn’t get that interested.
A true Guillermo Del Toro classic already ;) a beautiful movie.

4K and Bluray Comparisons.
The biggest difference between 4K Ultra HD and traditional Blu-ray is that the former supports resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 (4K), while the latter caps out at 1920 x 1080 (1080p). 4K is four times better than Blu ray. HDR is also available in 4K UHD… HDR expands the range of both contrast and color significantly. Bright parts of the image can get much brighter, so the image seems to have more ”depth.” Colors get expanded to show more bright blues, greens, reds and everything in between.

About Philippe Antonio

My name is Philippe Antonio and I love movies! Have a movie collection that I wouldn't even trade for a new Ferrari (the gasoline is to expensive) ... I love to draw and have my art on another website Blackbrush.se. Besides that, I also love Gadgets and Zlatan ... well, football generally. I Founded this website for my comic figure at first but has lately just focused on movie/game news, reviews and that stuff. So hope you liked it!
