I must confess I've not seen much of Tel Torro's work, Hellboy 2 and Pan's Labyrinth, but loved both of those. I must further confess that I haven't seen The Hobbit and have no immediate plans to. In 51 years I've become fond of comfort and as I have a 62 inch screen HD tv and Bose surround sound system at my disposal, and as I have gotten very good at delayed gratification, I plan to wait for blu ray and watch w/ a beer or a nice single barrel batch bourbon (or both) on a nice comfy sofa.
