    After the first time, it can never be about love; it’s simply about who can handle your baggage. 

    Actually the best part about this is that you can map on a plethora of sexual or death related metaphors, and they’ll all have legs to stand on, because it IS thinking about all of them.

Everyone has their own opinion, and I respect that. This was simply not for me. In fact this is the fourth Guillermo Del Toro film I’ve seen, and it’s the fourth I haven’t liked (Pan’s Labryinth (2.5), Hellboy (1.5), And Crimson Peak (.5)). There’s…
