Burns called the film a “visual spectacle” despite being on his phone in the theater.
Local man Todd Burns reportedly shifted his opinion on a movie after finding out it was nominated for several Oscars.
“What a beautiful film. The cinematography and score were simply exquisite,” Burns said of “The Shape of Water,” a film sources report he had previously described as “super weird” and “borderline bestiality.”
“The notably elegant blend of whimsy and dramatic tension made for an altogether delightful experience,” said the man who spent the last half hour of the movie looking at his phone. Although he considered leaving the film before it ended, Burns reconsidered his stance upon hearing that it was nominated for an award by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
“I knew as soon as I saw it that it was gonna sweep the Oscars,” said Burns.
Burns went on to say weeks after he had trashed the film, adding that he had recommended it to classmates that afternoon.
“I bet they’re gonna go see it now that the Academy has said what I’ve been saying all along.”
When asked, Burns’s friend Holly Stewart reported that “Todd had told us all not to watch that movie. I’m pretty sure he called it furry propaganda.”
“Honestly, I thought it was kinda gross how she pretty much went all the way with a fish person, but it got so many awards, so I must have missed something,” said Todd’s wife Helen Burns about the film that had received 13 nominations, later adding, “now that I think about it, it was actually pretty good.”
The film, which gained notoriety for its avant-garde interpretation of “The Creature From The Black Lagoon” was thoroughly despised by Burns until he heard more erudite people enjoyed it. At press time, Burns was telling everyone that he “heard ‘I, Tonya’ wasn’t that good”, despite having not seen it himself.
