    These are two of the best films i have ever seen.
    The plot and characters in Pans Labyrinth are bloody captivating. i especially like the part where that bloke gets his skull smashed in.

    And The Orphanage is enough to give me nightmares.

    quality shit.
    appreciate.

    Oh shit I completely forgot about that Orphanage thanks for reminding me I will have to get it. I have seen Pans Labyrinth and it is by far the best film I have seen with Labyrinth in the title, didnt enjoy the one with David Bowie that much, yes it is a very good film. The guys directing The Hobbit as well isnt he?

    love the bit with the hands is the eyes of the thing that eats children.
    other than that it was way more serious than id thought it would be, its actually not so much fantasy as a drama

    just downloaded and watched the orphanage. I hate to say i thought the scare factor was pretty minimal. Nice idea tho.

    I've not seen the orphanage, but really want to. Pans Labyrinth is one of my all time favourite films, it's amazing. I think everything about it is excellent. What about Hellboy, do people like that? I don't think it's anywhere near as good, but I still liked it

    most horrible film i ever seen was a film called REVERSED, i think. French movie. Got the a hideous 10 minute rape scene that made me feel sick. The woman who gets raped is a really likable character too. Upset me for the day. I don't recommend anyone watch it really.

    Hellboy 2 is excellence.

    Del Toro will be making Hobbit 1 & 2. Which is cool, maybe they'll have some humour in them (which the book is infused with), unlike Jackson's SERIOUS SERIOUS SERIOUS films (despite the Lord of the Rings containing a lot of humor).
