 "Hellboy" a Hellish Cinematic Experience 

Hellboy is one of those superhero films that features an anti-hero, a tainted and damaged soul whose entire battle is essentially to allow his essential goodness ot overwhelm his darkest of shadows. It's a story arc we've seen before, Suicide Squad being an example, and we've definitely seen it done much better. 


 "Teen Spirit" a Remarkable Debut from Max Minghella 

Elle Fanning, who has thus far forged quite the indie career by being unafraid to pretty much tackle anything, is nonetheless an absolute revelation as Violet, desperately leaning into the harsh realities of her existence yet seemingly existing on an entirely other plane of existence whenever the music starts to play and her voice of angelic desperation comes to life.
