Movie review

I saw Hellboy 2 today. I was actually surprised how much I liked it. I LOVE Guillermo Del Toro (The Devil's Backbone is one of my favorite movies) and I could see a lot of his wonderful images in the movie. It was like Pan's Labryth that was action packed. I want to go see the new Batman movie-maybe this weekend.

On another movie news. I started watching Hairspray the musical and again was plesantly surprised. I also love John Waters so I was really skeptical about the musical but I think it did him proud.

I have Persepolis to watch also and The Spiderwick Chronicles. We shall see how they hold up.

Others that I have seen: Semi-Pro: OK, I really like Will Farrell so if you like him, you'll like the movie. A lot of good one liners.
In Bruges: Really good. The trailer does not represent the movie at all but still a really good flick. Pretty sad.
Be Kind, Rewind: Again, the trailer did not do the movie justice. I really liked the way it was not a typical American movie ending. It was a very sweet movie. I would recommend it.

Let's see...have I seen any bad "B" movies lately? I really haven't. I am always a sucker for the ScFi channel movies but I've been too busy to watch any. I did find out that they are remaking Creature from the Black Lagoon and I'm pretty pissed about that. They are also making a Tekken movie. Really, Seriously? What next-a Tetris movie? Leave it alone people!

I'm on the hunt for a Death Race 2000-so if anyone has one. Send it my way!

ok I have persepolis coming this week from netflix. Dan and I watched In Bruges Colin Farrell had some crazy one liners in that movie but I agree with you that is was sad expecially the ending..We loved Be Kind rewind, it just made you feel good. I boycotted the new hairspray but I loved the john waters one

I just watched Hairspray. John Travolta was so bad but the rest of it was really cute. I love the original Hairspray so much (I just love John Waters) so I was pretty resistant but it was really cute.

i still have not seen hellboy 2 :(
but...a tekken movie? why? did you ever see the mortal kombat movie? it was terrible. they don't need to go down that road again. plus:no more remakes, please! the originals are awesome & just face the fact that you suck & can't think of better ideas. i haven't seen the new hairspray yet though. john waters really did a number on me after pink flamingos ::shudders::
