You know how there are those TV shows, where it seems like everywhere you turn, someone is talking about how brilliant it is and how if you don't watch it you should, and you think to yourself "Geez, I should really watch that," but you don't, because even though you have a DVR that you could program to start watching it, it's one of the crappy ones where you can only tape one thing at a time and you got sucked into The Biggest Loser again somehow, and then you think you should Netflix it but your boyfriend has finally agreed to watch Buffy, and your queue is totally full of that and you finally get fed up with it and say "God! Okay! I'll watch it eventually. Just, not right now." You know, shows like that? Well, Arrested Development was one of those shows for me. I'm sure it was brilliant. And I long ago determined that someday I will watch it, that I'll rent the whole damn series, and I know I'll probably love it. Turns out I'd better get my ass in gear, because according to series star Jeffrey Tambor, they're ready to go on the Arrested Development movie.
You know how sometimes something is so unexpectedly magical that it completely catches you off-guard and leaves you wanting more?
Well, that's how many people reacted to the first Hellboy movie: It was a wonderful addition to the genres of comic book and superhero movies, because it was those things and more. Hellboy wasn't really a superhero so much as a demon, after all, so it had that element. And it was funny, because Hellboy had a thing for cats, and loved watching TV and eating Baby Ruth bars.
