It's starting to get rainy outside and I can't wait to get home and settled in with a movie. I'm halfway through with "HellBoy" and I have to say...I kinda like it. I have discovered a pattern in what I like about certain movies like that. I love a good backstory. I am always curious about how a character came to be. How did he/she get his/her powers? What is her/his ultimate purpose? Or if it's a villain...why did he/she come to be that way? I'm still waiting to find out who HellBoy really is. And I can't wait to find out more about Wolverine's past in the X-MEN movies. I think that is always the most interesting thing about characters. How they came to be who they are. And maybe that interests me in people too. I always like finding out about people's pasts. Because, after all, who you are is partially a culmination of your past experiences. I'll let you know how HELLBOY turns out.

I really liked "Hellboy." Good comic book adaptation.

For the most part, I really liked it. That one clockwork villain was super-creepy. And I liked the backstory. Kind of a cool concept.
