Comments– I enjoyed this one better than the first: it was funnier, there was even bigger enemies, and the final “boss fight” lived up to the hype that the movie built for it; it was just a cooler movie. Again, the CGI was great, and Ron Perlman, and the rest of the cast, did a fine job. Without having read any of the comics, I cannot compare how well this holds up as a “comic book movie”, but just as an action film, I really enjoyed it. Great.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
