If you’re interested in my thoughts on Hellboy, Guillermo Del Toro’s genius with visuals, the funniest movie singalong in some time, and of course my man-crush on the awesome Ron Perlman, click here and read my Den of Geek review of Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Featuring absolutely gorgeous cinematography and special effects (practical effects, not just CGI), Hellboy II could show George Lucas how to do CGI without overdoing CGI.

If that’s not enough for you (and I know it’s not, because you’re all insatiable for the stuff I love), then click further into the website and check out DoG’s exclusive interview with Hellboy II director Guillermo Del Toro as he chats all things Hellboy, The Hobbit, and how he’s become the guardian angel of first-time directors after his horrible experience working on Mimic.

Hellboy Uber Alles (at the box office)

July 15, 2008

Next week, a little film called The Dark Knight is released. Have you heard about this? Apparently, there’s this comic book hero called ‘Batman’ who flies around, hangs upside down, eats bugs, and then does superhero stuff, probably because he was bitten by a radioactive bat or something. I haven’t heard anything about it, since the marketing has been so low-key and subtle, but apparently the kids are very excited about it. I’m sure it’ll be a laff-riot, since we know how funny those yucksters the Katzenjammer Kids are in their funny pages.

Go read my Box Office Report here. Hellboy cleaned up this weekend. Figuratively, not literally. The movie theater floor is as sticky with mystery fluids as you might remember. Box office numbers, now with 150% extra snarky commentary.
