You have right to your opinion but in these specific instances I see them as integral to plot, character, and metaphor

It seems as if the members of the cast really enjoyed each other's company.

Jenkins: “If you see this movie and you root for Sally and the Creature to get together; if you root for Giles, if the fact that he [endures a romantic reversal] is painful for you, you’ve walked in these people’s shoes and you’ve empathized with them. Maybe it will help you understand the lives people like this have had to lead, and it’ll open your heart up a little bit. I know that’s Guillermo’s wish.”

Just watched "The Shape of Water" tonight.

Sure. There are elements of "remakes" in this film: e.g., Black Lagoon, Beauty and The Beast. Regardless, this is a unique, special, and wonderful film on many levels.

So as not to "spill & spoil" it for anyone, the only observation I chose to share is the common element of loneliness amongst the lead characters.

Loved this film.

Enjoy

We just saw this today, what a beautiful movie. I loved every minute of it. It's interesting that they cast Michael Shannon as Strickland, his role was so similar to the one he played as Nelson Van Alden in Boardwalk Empire.
