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.
