" It's ambitious & low-key at the same time, knowing full well that its target audience isn't the mainstream blockbuster demographic that demands structure or even sanity. It's specifically designed to attract a cult audience who will love it to pieces & turn it into a long lasting treasure."
-The Wrap.


I'm still looking forward to this reboot.
More anxious to see Hellboy than EndGame.

I'm going to see it tomorrow for the podcast review on Saturday, but I wasn't really feeling the trailers to begin with. Now I am worried.

for whatever reason, the more I see of this reboot, the more I'm skeptical of it. It looks like a string of set pieces that you would find in a Sy-Fy movie with 20 times the budget.

Apparently there was a lot of in-fighting during filming which is usually a bad sign.  I mean, when the producers fire the cinematographer just to "send a message" to the director, then you know there is a lot of petty shit going on that would hinder the movie.

I predict Hellboy is not gonna do well. Not big enough of a fan base and the fan base wanted Hellboy 3 and since then they delivered some pretty mediocre trailers.

To me the trailers just havent shown the ‘zing’ the original had. Everyone seems to just be there.

This was a good call about the fan base. Nobody wanted a reboot.

I sure didnt.
I was looking forward to a third outing, after just a slight dip (for me) in fun from the first to second movies. I think the third would have nailed it.

It’s a shame because there is a dearth of fantasy films and this looked cool with the Baba Yaga/Giants etc

The people of the world were given the gift of ”Solomon Kane” and in their hubris rejected it. Let them suffer.

I just saw it. It was good. Kinda dense in it covered a lot of ground. It was pretty gory and the ending has some pretty cool Lovecraftian/silent hillish creatures. They really did a great job with the visuals on a pretty small budget.

^^^Thats pretty positive on your part.

I intend to watch this of course, but nothing has made me want to do so at the theater. I’ll wait on it.
Question, do we get to see Lobster friggin Johnson?!?!?
