I realize at this moment in time, most people are preoccupied with the cinematic behemoth that is The Dark Knight. And rightly so, as it is an astoundingly great film. But please do yourself a favor, and make sure you don't miss the visual masterpiece that is Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Made by Guillermo del Toro (the genius behind Pan's Labyrinth), this movie is an utterly gorgeous, thoroughly enjoyable unlikely hero story, chock full of some of the most imaginative, fantastical creatures and environments I have ever seen on screen. You don't have to have seen the first Hellboy to understand what's going on (though that's a pretty good film in itself), and you will be treated to an exciting and at times quite funny ocular feast. Go now.
