Top Ten Animated Movies of the Decade

February 9, 2018

10. The Shape of Water Guillermo Del Toro brings himself back in the limelight this year with his modern fairy tale along the lines of Beauty and the Beast.  A Shape of Water combines contemporary storytelling with mythic tendencies, adds in an engrossing lead performance of Sally Hawkins, and Del Toro’s typical production design for […]
