Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)
Best Fantasy Since Lord Of The Rings
Just saw a press screening and I have to say...This movie just kicks ass!!!
It's been a while since I saw the first one but this one has got to be a WHOLE lot better. It's definitely more fun and wildly imaginative. The new(and the old)characters are very interesting and funny also....especially Johann Krauss, the new leader of the team, with his accent and ridiculous costume(his voice actually remined me a lot of Jeremy Irons from Die Hard With A Vengeance lol) Perleman is so perfect that I can't imagine anyone else playing this role! It's seems like he's even better and having more fun with the character than the the first time.
I love the way the movie doesn't take itself too seriously but instead opens up for a lot of comedy and funny one-liners...I LOVED the beer drinking scene!
The characters reminded me to some extent of Pans Labyrinth, and I suspect if you loved that one you'll like this movie too. I love these movies where the director has a very personal and spesific vision, because the universe becomes so complete in and on to itself. Like watching a Tim Burton movie.
I bet Del Toro is a very fitting choice to do The Hobitt now. I certainly wouldn't mind seeing this one again any time soon. Finally a movie that has lots of kick-ass action and long hairy balls!......a complete fantasy.
Iron Man (2008)
Robert Downey Jr. is perfect! Gwyneth Paltrow is perfect! Terrence Howard is Perfect...and Jeff Bridges is brilliant! -There is something deliciously great and different about seeing The Big Lebowski play Tony Stark's second In Command. Bridges is truly one of the best actors of his generation, and I guess the same thing can be said about Downey Jr:
I believe it is important, even essential, to get actors with such comedic talents as Michael Keaton and now Robert Downey Jr. to play these superhero types. It proves for far more interesting watching than an actor who puts his chin out and plays it sooooooo serious all the time. This is a role that perhaps Mel Gibson could have played 20 years ago, but other than him I can't really picture anyone else having pulled it of so efortlessly.
The movie is entertaining with blasting action scenes and a director that clearly knows what he's doing, but what struck me the most was the chemistry beetween the leads and how well the dialogue scenes were handled. Gwyneth Paltrow is so real and beautiful in her part and you can feel the relationships between the characters is already built in and feels real.....check it out!
