Oh heck. Well, you know, Hellboy is arguably more FUN to watch, and is probably more likely to get repeat viewings from me, but damn, if Pan's Labyrinth wasn't a piece of genius. This is really hard. Labyrinth is a better movie, really, I suppose.
Hellboy more fun to watch? Uh, no. Hellboy II, maybe. But not Hellboy. Pan's Labyrinth has both style and substance. Hellboy is a little lacking in both. Pan's Labyrinth, without a moment's hesitation.
I loved both these movies, but Pan's Labyrinth was on a whole other level. Now that I think about it, I haven't seen Hellboy 2. Gotta fix that.
Hellboy was a relatively unparalleled disappointment for me. I'd only seen one other film of Guillermo del Toro's at the time, which just so happened to be Pan's Labyrinth, and to call it a favorite would be an understatement, as it came to rest at second place all-time on my list. By comparison, Hellboy seemed watered down. If it were not for Hellboy II: The Golden Army and The Devil's Backbone, I'd've started to think of Pan's Labyrinth as some sort of wondrous anomaly. Luckily, it's not.
I really liked Pan's,but I love Hellboy. so...
Del Toro, the man is a certified genius. Hellboy is good, but Pan's Labyrinth is the pinnacle of his work so far.
I like both of these movies, but I have to give the nod to Pan's Labyrinth for the story it tells. The visuals on both films are fantastic. . .
Hellboy I can watch over and over again, but the story in Pan's Labryinth was phenomenal. Tough choice, but I Pan.
