    ★★★★

    If Kubrick, Kurosawa, and Welles are the ideals that filmmakers should strive toward, John Waters, and this film, are the greatest frenzied fever dreams of filmmakers I've ever seen. A beautiful example of counterculture trash, in the best way.

    I may be alone in thinking it, but I found this rather average. Dee Wallace's performance was great, but the cheating subplot feels like it takes away empathy points from the audience, for the protagonist; and Danny Pintauro just screaming and screaming and screaming just grates... Glad the dog enjoyed working on the movie though.

    Hellboy, more like Hellbad.

    Remarkably awful, you could feel the studio executive interference on this one... The movie plays off like an awful clip show episode of a Hellboy TV series, showing stories from across Hellboy's comics, while confusingly starting with the final arc of his comic life? Add that to the fact this film suffers from what I call "prequel-trilogy-itis" where a thousand cool things are just talked about having already happened instead of shown, in lieu of actual…
