Hellboy II: The Golden Army: This sequel is a mind-blowing display of comic-book-movie filmmaking, director Guillermo del Toro somehow achieving mythic grandeur while providing a rollicking good time. Ron Perlman gives a truly Oscar-worthy performance as the Joe Six-pack of superheroes.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars: In George Lucas' animated prequel, Anakin Skywalker leads the clone armies of the Republic against the droid armies of the evil Separatists. Story is entirely insignificant, as it has been in the Star Wars universe since the closing credits of Return of the Jedi; the only important thing is that viewers are blown away by the movie's endless and pointless laser battles.
