for me, the fact that the same person who directed Pan's Labyrinth also did Hellboy indicates to me that I should not judge another movie coming out from that director based on a previous one. Just based on those two, it's kind of tough for me to come up with a style that you use, if that makes sense- other than that kind of wild imagination that allows you to create almost whatever you want- like the Pale Man, in PL, or....well for HB, I'm mostly thinking of the creatures (whatever they were) that I saw in the trailer. Don't get me wrong- I really like both of those films (and I don't think I'd really hesitate to tell a director that I was not a fan of his films if I had a legit reason), but there is something incomparable about them, too: I will expect HBII to be in the same style as HB, but I will not expect the style of PL. Maybe that sounds like a kind of obvious thing to say, but that then goes for any other movie that you make- The Hobbit is a different style from HB (a comic book) and PL (a parable, almost)- so given the fact that you were able to change the styles for those two types of films, I don't have any worries about The Hobbit. If that all made sense.

edit- I'm also looking forward to HBII!!! When I mentioned the trailer, it was because I'd seen it lots of times! Laugh
Thank you!

Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. -C.S. Lewis
