Can't get a ticket to the Dark Knight?

Go see Hellboy II. It's just beautiful to look at and is a ton of fun.

del Toro is making "The Hobbit." After seeing Hellboy II...I'm signed up. Perfect.

I would think Pan's Labyrinth would enough of a calling card - a genuine fairytale, with the real edge of the uncanny...

But don't miss TDK. It's wonderful.

Of course. But Hellboy II was an entertainment as well. Which, frankly, The Hobbit is. Pan's Labyrinth is about the monstrosity of human beings. It's gorgeous and amazing and as bleak as a very bleak thing.

The Dark Knight I've seen twice (one of those midnight showings geeks, I am) But it's a shame to see the endless sold out Dark Knight showings and the same audience missing Hellboy II, which has been taking a beating at the box office.

I wanted to see this because it looked like the best puppeteer work I'd seen on a national venue since Jim Henson was alive. I keep trying to get my boyfriend to agree to see this with me, but no dice. I fear the first movie, along with the cartoony premise are the main draw backs.
