I mean, they only have one big, ancient monster (or two, if you count the battle at the end as one), and in a world like Hellboy's, you can easily work in non-conflicting but cool sidestuff. They did a little of this, like the idea of talking with the dead, but why stop there?
Granted, you can never really catch the feel of a comic in a movie, especially live action.
I guess, lately, I've been feeling that movies are too short, too rushed. I think this if a recent phenomenon, though, because watching, say The Maxx on VHS, which is a mere 2 hours, doesn't give me that feeling. It easily covers far more ground than most TV series, though! Hrm.

i didn't want to make a call on its quality too early, but those trailers were already extremely worrisome. the del Toro movies weren't perfect but they were really good and creative and exceptionally directed. I like Harbour but Perlman is an impossible act to follow, and sticking in some anonymous for-hire director was never going to improve on the previous films.

it felt very made-by-committee, which is so off-brand for the character
i think the worst part was the soundtrack?? or the fact that it sounded like p much every 'british' lead character was very obviously not
