OK, so it’s obviously not that big of a secret when it took me exactly one second on the Google to find out that actor Luke Goss, who plays the very evil and very extremely sexy villain, Prince Nuada in the new movie Hellboy II (which is fantastic, BTW) was formerly a member of the ‘80s British Boy Band, Bros with his identical twin brother, Matt! This is just too insane!

If you’re as much of a cute-boy-obsessed music nerd as me (and I’m guessing that you’re probably not) then you might recall Bros’ uber-gay, popular- in-the -UK-only hit from 1987, “When Will I Be Famous?” – a song so twee it makes the Backstreet Boys’ hit, “I Want It That Way” sound like “Stairway to Heaven.” Weee! Well, I gotta say that Luke has grown up to be a total babe and a terrific actor. I recommend that you go see Hellboy II right away (lines are way shorter than for The Dark Knight) because it will knock your socks off. And, like I said, Goss’sPrince Nuada is just smokin’ hot!
Move Over David Beckham, This is What Luke Looks Like Without Corpse Paint all Over His Face!
I’ve been very much looking forward to the upcoming release of director Guillermo Del Toro’sHellboy II and nothing got me more excited just now than seeing this awesome Mr. Potatohead Hellboy mash up! I want to own it!
When you plan a trip to your local movie theater, do you secretly wish to find an arty, foreign language film that manages to combine elements of Through The Looking Glass with Saw, while also giving you a Reader’s Digest condensed peek at life in rural Spain during Franco’s fascist regime? If so, I’m happy to tell you that all of your cinematic fantasies have come true with a film I just saw yesterday call Pan’s Labyrinth. This movie may be about the dark, reality-blurring adventures of a lonely, freaked-out ten year old girl named Ofelia but, trust me, it’s not for children. Unless you’re one of those deranged parents who think it’s appropriate to take your eight year old to see Hostel, in which case, pack up the whole brood!
When you see this Dude, Get Ready for Some Fucked Up Shit to Go Down
My favorite part of Pan’s Labyrinth was when Ofelia drew a door on her bedroom wall with some chalk and pushed her way through to the banquet room of The Pale Man, who she has to sneak by in order to steal, I don’t know, some kind of thing that’s behind a locked compartment. Honestly, I wasn’t paying that close of attention. I was too absorbed in trying to figure out what the fuck was up with this naked, fleshy creature seated before a huge, sumptuous feast with his eyeballs on a plate in front of him. Hardcore!
Pan’s Labyrinth is directed by Guillermo Del Toro, the same guy who did cool films like HellBoyand Chronos, so if you liked those films go see it and then write me an email and let me know how much you think it rocked.
