A wall painting from the tomb of King AY. There is a story here. You remember the young king Tutankhamun, who was buried with all that wealth? His young widow was then married to AY, who was 70 at the time. She was not too happy with the arrangement, possibly also because he was her grandfather!

HELLBOY 11 ... The movie

Monday, July 14, 2008


Well, thought I should see the original HELLBOY before going to the new flick. This on the advice of my daughter, Stacey. Seems this classic has a following. Could not find a copy at a couple Video stores, then got the last one at Blockbuster.

So people are checking out the original enmasse. Some, probably after seeing HELLBOY II.

I like the part in the original where he is grinding down his horns. He does this so he "fits in" so to speak. Some real sci-fi here, other genres touched on also.
