Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)

(uh, guys, that’s them behind you)

Directed by Guillermo del Toro

After I saw this film I went around telling everybody that they simply had to go see it. Usually the person to whom I was speaking would hem and haw a little bit. “Well, I never saw the first one.”

“Don’t worry,” I’d reply, “you’re not missing much; it wasn’t all that good. But Hellboy II is great.” [read my full review here]

“Of the Month” February 2009

Link of the Month:
Gunnerkrigg Court
A fascinating webcomic about a strange school in a vast, mostly-abandoned industrial complex with a mysterious history.  The main characters have an amusingly blasé attitude towards the bizarre scientific and supernatural things they encounter almost constantly.  The comic steadily builds an intriguing mythology, and the art style thankfully matures with the characters.  Good to sit and read several chapters at a time.  Also available in graphic novel format!

DVD of the Month:
Hellboy II: The Golden Army
A great, magical movie. I told a lot of people to go see it, and they’d often say, “I never saw Hellboy I.” I’d then always reply, “That’s okay; it wasn’t that good. This one is way, way better.” I’d tell you to read my full review of it over in my Movie Reviews section, but I haven’t actually written it yet. What’s wrong with me? I’m so behind.

Game of the Month:
Animal Crossing: City Folk
I’m kinda shocked it took me this long to make Animal Crossing: City Folk on my “Of the Month” list, considering that Carrie & I got the game back in late November and have played it pretty much every day since then.
