Hellboy II
It's so pretty! See it! <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

I love it when people take a turn off the beaten artistic path. Same director as Pan's Labyrinth, and the actor who plays Abe Sapien also played the Faun in that movie. I just loved watching him move. I wonder what art he studies. The fight scenes were also very smooth.

Re: Hellboy II
haha, probably whatever style the fight choreographer decided, it's amazing the work they do in such a short amount of time with actors.

Re: Hellboy II
I meant just the way Abe walks. Reminds me of Tai Chi, but it's probably some kind of mime or dance thing....

Re: Hellboy II
Saw it Friday and thought it was beautiful. Although I've never seen Pan's Labyrinth (I've heard there are some really disturbing critters in it) I thought the creatures were fantastic, the soundtrack was great and the plot was creative and worked well with the characters. Although I was sad that they didn't have David Hyde Pierce do Abe's voice again. And I wished they would have met more creatures at the troll market. Overall I liked it and thought it was a decent movie. Anyone that's a fan of heavy visual stuff in movies should go see it!

Re: Hellboy II
Lol, the most disturbing 'critter' in Pan's Labyrinth was a human.

I heard there was a character called the "baby-eater"?

Re: Hellboy II
Yes there was. The human still disturbed me more.

Re: Hellboy II
"Pan's Labyrinth" had the Pale Man- played by the glorious Doug Jones- who was a mythical creature that did, in fact, devour children. (I agree. The Captain was much more frightening.) Doug Jones also played the Faun in "Pan's Labyrinth" and Abe Sapien in both Hellboy movies. He didn't study an art for the role of Abe, but was inspired by the fluid movements of a goldfish. He's double-jointed and has done work as a contortionist. (He was also in the Grammy winning Buffy episode "Hush" as one of the Gentlemen. Doug Jones has also been in Batman Returns, Doom... Heck, the man's been in everything.) (Seriously. Did I mention I LOVE Doug Jones? *purrrrrrrrr*) As for "Hellboy II: The Golden Army"...

I walked out of that movie crying my eyes out. When Prince Nuada said "We die and the world is poorer for it" I couldn't stop crying. It's so true. When the elemental died? Yeah, I cried. I spent the entire movie in tears- and that's honestly the first movie I've ever seen that's done that to me- and wondering why people laughed when the elemental was killed.

Re: Hellboy II
I neither laughed nor cried.
There were moments that were beautiful and moving, there were moments where I couldn't do anything but roll my eyes in reaction to the abundance of "generic-ness" in the plotline, to the point where the dialogue was predictable down to a syllable.
It hurt, because I love the concepts, I love the works of del toro, I do love the actors in hellboy, and "this" was all I got?

Re: Hellboy II
Some of the visuals were beyond stunning.
And i love how they used makeup and animatronics much more then CGI. I'm glad it's not a complete lost art in the movie industry quite yet.
