Hellboy: Blood and Iron

this one was just as enjoyable as the last Hellboy movie I reviewed, except for one thing- how can they not know how to pronounce Hecate?  it's not "Heh-Kate". it's not.

it's Hekátē, pronounced /ˈhɛkətiː/, see how easy that was?

anyway, the movie is fun, well acted and directed.  it deals with a haunted house, which turns out to have a resurrected vampire in it.  so the BPRD is sent to investigate. 

one of the best things about all the Hellboy movies is they don't lack a sense of humor.  I hate that superhero stuff lacks much humor any more, since by and large they are a pretty silly lot.
