Ep399: Fire Festival

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast muscles through an eternity of regret with a look at Neil Marshall's Hellboy reboot!* Joining Ian in the pit are Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie and Emmanuel Noisette of Eman's Movie Reviews, whose spoilerific, teeth-gnashing analysis underscores their grief at a franchise left incomplete by Guillermo del Toro in 2008.

David Harbour slips into the red bodysuit as Hellboy, a paranormal investigator with the mouth of a tween-TV sidekick and the brains to match. When an ancient witch (Milla Jovovich) plots her apocalyptic return from banishment, Hellboy must decide between demonkind and the human race that sort of not really absolutely did not adopted him.

As you'll soon hear, this disjointed and puzzlingly regressive would-be blockbuster was almost too much for Earth's Mightiest Critics--who offer up this discussion as an urgent Public Service Announcement.

Episode 399 barely remembers what movie it's about!
