worth a purchase for 8 quid?
also, whats hellboy like?
action superheroey type things i should really check out?
but it's worth watching, possibly not worth paying £8 for though.
Argh.. I disliked it immensely at the time.. I may have to revisit it, tho...
what other films should i get. i wanna get 2 action films and then one which is gonna make me think more.
buy Precient 13. Now THAT is a cool film.
jude law is crap but then he always is.
I LOVE IT.
hellboy is decent enough.
i really enjoyed it.
where is the DVD 8 quid? is it in virgin's 3 for £20 or something?
hellboy was.. um.. i can remember very little about it, which says it all really.
Lily Tomlin is a legend.. I did like her in it.
Jude... hmmm... so WRONG for that film in so many ways.
he's breastfeeding jason schwartzman is amazing.
If you want some decent action then get the japanese film Versus, I'm sure it's going cheap as hell on amazon.
I appreciate existentialism as much as the next person who has
some grasp of it all... I should watch it again... I shan't be dismissive... I won't go into it here on this forum just now.
dont buy it
i was looking at it and those were the two films that caught my eye.
7 quid then
and I thought Hellboy was good the first time I saw it, but it's dropped off in my estimation since the last time I saw it.
If it's the special three disc edition.....get it. Del Toro is good for all the extras.
Hollywood trying overly hard to be quirky and philosophical. It just seems kinda forced.
did nobody else get the fact that
the philosophy is a complete joke and only really there for laughs?
it's not really that funny. it seems to contrived.
maybe i just didn't "get" it, but still
there both good films for what they are.
Hellboy joins the short list of comic book films which do some justice to the siurce material.
Hellboy 2 this summer, Yes!
hellboy was better than, say, fantastic four (i found out the other day there's a sequel to it coming out this summer - WHY?), but i still don't think it's much cop. it's no spidey.
Hellboy is by far the best and most accurate comic book adaptation that Hollywood has produced, both stylistically and in terms of plot. And it's good that they chose one of the best comics to do it for.
