Hellboy II: The Golden Army8.5/10

Hellboy II: The Golden Army is in many ways better than its predecessor. The action in this Hellboy film is better orchestrated, the structure is tighter and the emotional element is more palpable. The plot to Hellboy II: The Golden Army is simple. Stop an ancient race that lives on our world in secret from unleashing mechanized machines known as The Golden Army and killing humanity. The first line of defense against this threat is the clandestine Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD) and its divergent cadre of worker bees.

Firefly: The Series10/10

Fox dumped Firefly (a new show) on a Friday night time slot, so I automatically thought the show was lousy. In addition, the commercials for the show were nothing special. Then I saw the trailer for the film Serenity and I became interested in the television show that it was based on. I thought: there’s a television show about this before realizing what that show actually was. So I sat down and watched the first episode of Firefly and was amazed at the writing, the characters and the western-techno future Joss Whedon had created.

    FilmBook, its a raunchy Baywatch spoof that Howard Stern produced back in 1999/00/01.

    Timothy Stack plays Notch Johnson, head lifeguard for Malibu Adjacent.
    Its a pretty funny show with some very hot hardbody babes. Very adult.
    I only mentioned it because its been 5 years since the first volume came out. I was wondering if volume 2 would ever show up.

  • I know all about the show. I listen to Stern all the time. He tried getting the director of Jun to direct some episodes before he became famous.
    I’m still waiting for the last season of The Practice and a good release for Space: Above and Beyond.

  • I want to see Space on Blu-ray. LEXX was a very interesting show. Farscape was way better though.

    Have you seen the PeaceKeeper Wars yet. (Wow)
    Besides season 3 when Chricton was duped, some of the best Farscape was the last 5 episodes of Season 4. “The Peacekeeper Wars” came afterwards and was the crowing achievement of the show!!!
