Houndoom by Ruth-Tay

Holy crap, that thing looks vicious... Ok, that out of the way, this is an amazing, and in my mind, accurate portrayal of that menacing...

Well, the title says it all! Today, I hit 100 subscribers, which means that after Hocus Pocus, I get to do a SPECIAL movie review: Hellboy II: The Golden Army. It's my 10th favorite movie of all time, and every 100 subs I get, I will do another one of my top 10, and every 100 after that will be strictly user suggestions.

Hellboy II is exactly what you want in a sequel. It does everything that the first one does, but does it better. Hellboy is still the little kid in a grown demon's body and they removed the young agent (since he wasn't even in the comic, I consider that a good thing.) It further builds on the side characters, Liz and Abe, and goes into the relationship between Liz and Hellboy pretty damn well.

And for the villains, we have Nuada, an elf prince who is bent on destroying humanity by using the titular Golden Army. One definitely gets a very Shakespearean vibe from him in the way he carries himself. However classy as he may be, he is Hellboy's most challenging foe - physically and mentally. He virtually pits Hellboy against a creature known as a forest guardian, and when Hellboy is about to finish the creature off, Nuada appears, knowing Hellboy's main task is to stop him. He questions Hellboy's morality, as the forest creature is the last of its kind, but Hellboy regrettably follows the orders of his superiors and ends the creature's life.

I would be completely remiss if I didn't mention Nuada's princess twin, Nuala. She carries a piece of the crown of the Golden Army that Nuada looks for, and is "bonded" with her twin. As in if she gets cut, he bleeds. If he gets punched, she feels the pain. Hellboy has a real task trying to fight Nuada without hurting the innocent Nuada.

I cannot give the movie a score, as it would be pretty obvious. I mean, I'm putting it as my tenth favorite movie of all time, after all. :)
Some nights, sleep just doesn't come to me.
I lie awake and stare at the ceiling,
as the clock keeps on
ticking.
With each tick, it makes me feel more secluded,
like I am a prisoner in solitary confinement,
and still, the clock keeps on
ticking.
And the pitch black of the room makes me feel alone,
as if I were wandering through a dark wood.
But, I still hear the clock,
ticking.
With eyes wide open, and a blanket held tight,
this is why my least favorite line is
"Good night, son. Sweet dreams."

And the clock keeps on...

Ticking...
Ticking
Just felt compelled to write this down. No real reason.

For those of you who feel like your goal is beyond reach,
keep one word in mind. Yet.
"I'm not there yet...
...but I will be."
Wow. I have never been SO TORN on a trailer than I have been for this one.

Ok, the trailer shows a viral video of a high-school/college coed getting drunk. She gets bullied beyond repair afterwards, and three days later, she commits suicide. One year passes and a group of friends, I guess they went to the same school as the kid, get on Skype. The main story has them in sheer f***ing panic as someone, or something, decides to play a game with them kinda like Saw. Except this thing is faceless, voiceless, yet can turn off their lights. Even causes one guy to turn his arm into a milkshake.

My thoughts - this movie may fare well with audiences looking for decent spooks, but many similar horror movies are eventually mutilated by the critics. Does the movie intrigue me? It's more than got my attention. As of writing this Quick Thought, I learned that the movie has already won a couple of awards at the Fantastic Festival, basically a lower form of Sundance. If you're into this kind of movie, go look up the trailer, you won't be disappointed.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have someone on Skype bugging the crap out of
...duh.


Ok, that's the short version. Really, there isn't a whole lot to say about this cult classic. But, I'll definitely give it a try. The Sanderson Sisters are a complete blast to watch, and you can tell that the actresses portraying them had one hell of a time playing them. That said, the main issues come from the heroes, and some of the people around them. There are a ton of innuendos sprinkled throughout the movie, and many of them are really uncomfortable once you really think about it. The Nostalgia Critic got it right when he pointed out how being a virgin in the movie is oddly shunned upon. But, that being said, the effects were pretty damn good for the time, the special effects makeup (specifically for Billy Butcherson) is phenomenal, and when the movie is funny, it's really damn funny.

Also, stay tuned after the review for a special message!
