Personally when a really good movie comes out that I’m anticipating I try to immerse myself in the subject matter of the movie. It really helps give me a renewed sense of creativity and helps to form a more meaningful connection with the (impending) movie. In the case with Hellboy 2, I’ve gotten to speak with director Guillermo del Toro, Hellboy himself Ron Perlman, and the villain of Hellboy 2 (Prince Nuada) Luke Goss. Oh, and a little guy named Abe Sapien (Doug Jones). After speaking with them and re-reading as much of Mike Mignola’s original Hellboy material as possible I was fully prepared for the awesomeness that is The Golden Army.

Raise your hand if you were not aware that Jim Henson’s Muppets were actually just puppets with hands up their asses (I’m raising my hand). The suspension of disbelief is incredible when creature work and acting come together so well. Peanut butter and chocolate anyone? For anyone looking to immerse themselves in the Hellboy Narrative before seeing the movie (or before seeing it again, like me) be sure to check out our Hellboy Spectacular Episode of The Stack from this week, as well as our interview with Guillermo del Toro and the cast of Hellboy 2. Also here’s a couple of bonuses for those of you like me who love DVD extras:
