#255: Two for Hellboy at 4:20

July 14, 2008

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #134: That’s Never Worked Before; #167: Seek, and Ye Shall Find

For a little more about Johann Krauss, go here. (The movie version of the character has two S's at the end, for some reason I don't know.)

Anyway, Hellboy 2 was really, really fun!

It's not Pan's Labyrinth or The Devil's Backbone with fight scenes, by any means, but it's very fun. The whole scene with the big plant monster (seen in the trailer) = fantastic. The titular Golden Army = cool as hell. There are several other great bits I'd rather not mention, because you should be surprised by them. It does have a relatively paint-by-numbers plot and a bit too much fantasy "logic," but I still really enjoyed it.

I definitely recommend action movie lovers see it, but don't expect too much more than just some fun action and some really cool creature effects. (By comparison, I thought the first one was just okay.)

There will be two more strips this week — one on Wednesday and another on Friday.

The Triple Feature: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Returned, and Ms. Marvel

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Joe was stuck in traffic, so Tom Brazelton and I handled it like Captain America and Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier! We also talked about the French supernatural drama The Returned and the all-new Ms. Marvel.

Also, I messed up and forgot to hide the little icons so you can see me when I don’t think you can see me. SUPER PROFESSIONAL PODCASTING SKILLS.
