Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008Moving picture, 120 minutes)

Obviously built for cinema (as opposed to my 29” CRT of 2011), and even then, it relies too heavily on spectacle. A lot of good design and effects work, but the misanthropic and apocalyptic angles are underplayed, because of the need to stay cool and anti-intellectual.
