Something, real or dream, went bump in the night and now I can't sleep again. Appropriately I found a nicely informative and yet still complex
review of Hellboy
by Slate's David Edelstein:
"Good superhero movies--from the first Batman (1989) to X-Men (2000)--are like superhero comics, in that they come from a distinct emotional place: that feeling of adolescent outsiderness that drives kids to live through . . .superhero comics. They inspire so many geeks (and geeks-at-heart) because they're about turning one's freakishness into an asset, making it a source of power and connection."
I definitely want to see this movie--along with about ten others. I just hope they last on the big screen past graduation, when I'll have some time.
