bonus time folks ( is there ever any other?) today, we meet two of the bestest, ogres that ever stepped out in the silver screen...one's red, the other green..together they're a christmas miracle!here then is the awesome twosome....
summoned from the depths of hell, by none other than Rasuptin himself, Anung un Rama or Hellboy; is the awesome creation of artist Mike Mignola, who was first depicted in Dark Horse Comics. Hellboy has since been associated with not one but two grotesquely wonderful movies directed by Guillermo Del Toro: Hellboy, his Right Hand of Doom and the Good Samaritan have since been involved in preventing demons, nazis and various other montstrosities from taking over earth (too bad they didn't use him to stop Fuld!!)...
based on William Steig's picture book of the same name, the Shrek movie series, thanks to the voice credits of Myers, Murphy, Cameron Diaz, and of course Anotonio Banderas ahve since gone on to oscar glory, and gazillions of dollars at the box office..
Shrek, (better known as the movie franchise, that pays for Mike Myers, and Eddie Murphy's grocery bills), is about the adventures of the above pictured green giant, and his marraige into royalty, and his reluctant adventures forced upon him by his in-laws!!!
There u have them folks, two distinct grotesque heroes, in two disticnt comic universes, and yet is some freeeeeky way (is there ever another???) the two have seemingly a lot in common...
Wasn't I the original green giant????
a) the reluctant superhero: Both Shrek and Hellboy, are thrust unwillingly into the limelight, while Hellboy's organisation, BRPD is at pains to keep him under wraps, Shrek is too reluctantly dragged from the comforts of his swamp home when pestered to do so, by the fellow creatures of his forest..
b) Hottie onthe side: Both our freaks, have unsurprisingly met their foil in a hottie, who is their companion in all their mis-adventures, played by Selma Blair (Hell boy) and Cameron Diaz(Shrek) these ladies provide the emotional support that our misunderstood leads need indulging in general ass-kickery all around!
c) wierdo side-kick: there's no putting across tis one gently folks, how else would u describe a telepathic fish-man and a talking -nay-singing Donkey that follow around or heroes in their respective mis-deeds!! Glorious that our heroes may be in their beastly glory, they would be much the less poorer were it not for Abe Sapien (hellboy) and Donkey (shrek) .
d) Evil Prince: Amongst the various evil-folk that our two heroes have encountered, are two evil ( is an issue of perspective really!) princes, while Hellboy in his latest movie adventure, contends with the freakily pale Prince Nuala who is intent on world control, Shrek has to deal with an equally crafty yet more amorous Prince charming (voiced by Rupert Everett) who has amorous designs on Princess Fiona ( for heaven's sake man, she's green!!)
Ladies Love the Hair!!
There u have it folks, a freeky look at two seemingly different, yet eerily similar FREAKS!
an extra freeky:
Sabka Baap hoon main!!
