Hellboy - Good movie.
« on: April 3, 2004, 01:31 PM »
So I saw Hellboy last night.

Having never read any of the comics, I was kinda nervous about not understanding the plot, but thankfully the plot is somewhat overused and anyone whose ever played Return to Castle Wolfenstein will be familar with the story...

Not a bad movie, though! I didn't like the tentacled squid-dog-looking bastards, I thought they were lame... but I thought the (overused) Super Nazi storyline was pretty cool. I'd definately suggest you comic/sci-fi fans go see it.

I have heard good things about this film.

I guess I am going to have to break and go see it, I kind of t though it would be a little lame, but hey, guess you can not judge a book by it's cover right?

Well, gonna go see it!

Bye! ;)

Saw Hellboy in theatres last night, and It surpassed all my expectations that I had for it, ever. I loved the ubernazi storyline, and that top assasin to Hitler.


Hellboy was really great.

I definitely enjoyed the movie. I'll probably see it again tomorrow. Now I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my Hellboy props :)

Hellboy

This was a great movie, man I loved it.  I think Selma Blair, was awesome as Liz!

It is a great film, I encourage everyone to go see it!  ;D

Agreed, 'twas good times. Ron Pearlman is perfectly cast and nails Hellboy's bluecollar attitude. The plot's pretty standard, but as a comic book movie, it really comes off unique. Very cool.

Heh. Hellboy likes Bud Light.

It was a pretty good flick. Definately buying the DVD.

I've been trying to talk the wife into going to this movie as well.  I have never read any of the comics, and basically know nothing about the character, but just thought the trailers looked cool.  Sounds like everyone is enjoying it so far, so that's good.  #1 at the box office this weekend as well I believe.

My buddy Greg (shutup, all of you) went to see Hellboy last night and said it 'sucked ass,' mainly due to the squid things - so apparently I'm not the only one who thought those things were stupid.

I loved it.  Lots and lots of fun.  Movies aren't fun, anymore, you know?  I'll actually probably see it again, since our theater here is too good for Eternal Sunshine and Kill Bill is a week away yet.

I finally had a day off, so I went and seen Hellboy tonight.  I enjoyed the movie.  I will buy it, when it comes out on DVD.
