this upsets me. I was really looking forward to it. Will still go see it, not seen batman yet though.

I liked Batman and thought it didn't do a bad job portraying the darker sides of human nature, although a colleague has since commented that she didn't like it because it was 'too dark'. It's Batman dear, what do you expect?!

I found Batman a bit 'Heath Robinson'- much preferred Jack Nicholson as the man telling the jokes...

maybe they're a fan of the camp 60s Batman

I have heard mixed reviews now - some say ace, some say pants.

I shall have to view for myself, I think.

ION, your comment links are inconceivable!

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I was disappointed, but I still enjoyed it. It seemed to be aiming to be really close to the comic and also a big blockbuster action thing and failed at both. Pretty much a "set brain to "Moooveee"" kind of film I think.

Well we enjoyed Hellboy 2 .

You can really see how Del Toro has gotten even better and has taken the best bits of pans labyrinth and stuck it into hellboy story .

The first film had a lot of scene setting and introducing and establishing characters. in the second film it goes more into the fantasy side of Hellboy and is actually closer to the comics than the first film.

if your a fan of the first film even with its 'hollywood' stlye then this one gets properly into the hellboy stlye and is a vast improvement.

They have even developed the hellboy character and have built up on the fact that he may be 'king of the underworld' / prince of darkness, setting the scene for the next lot of films.

everyone has opinions be it good/bad/indifferences.

But what is the point in posting to LJ like a sad little 4channer going =Epic , =Fail . next thing you know youll be putting comments on everyones posts with "tits or GTFO" or "SAGE" .

BTW why was my picture post on elizium taken down ?
you know the "furrys run the internetz" one!

I will WIN or FAIL as much as I like.

I decided not to post anything at length because I thought it would spoil it for those that haven't seen it. Like how fucking awful the young hellboy is. How superflous Liz being pregnant is. How they went OTT on the effects (that'll be the bit of Pan's Labyrinth). How pointless Abe falling in love is. How Luke Goss was the only decent actor in the film - and he didn't have that many lines. How the trailer totally overplayed the world of the Elves that barely featured in the film. How shit Krauss is (poor poor Seth MacFarlane) - he gets established as a complete stickler to the rules and then for no reason does a complete about turn. Also, the single joke made about his pronounciation was awful - the German word for Focus is.... FOCUS! How the creature bigged up as Nuadas bodyguard sounded like he had a big part and would be a major obstacle, but just wasn't.

I could go on, but I'm bored of it now.

You're fail-heavy post on Elizium was deleted because the image was (quite rightly) deleted/removed by the hoster.
