Five Favorite Films with Ron Perlman
While he's become best known for portraying a red, horned antihero in Guillermo del Toro's popular comic book adaptations Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Ron Perlman has long been a favorite character actor among fantasy and science fiction fans thanks to his work in films like Quest for Fire, The City of Lost Children, Cronos, and Blade II. This week, the classically-trained actor (who is between seasons on his critically acclaimed FX series, Sons of Anarchy) stars in Mutant Chronicles as Brother Samuel, a monk dedicated to guarding a set of scriptures that predict the coming of an ancient enemy. Rotten Tomatoes talked with Perlman about his favorite movies and directors, whose films he watches when he's having a rough day, and his remembrances of working alongside one of his idols, Marlon Brando.

Exclusive: Franklyn - Director's Sketchbook
Franklyn may be Gerald McMorrow's debut feature film, but by the standards of even the most experienced of helmers it's an ambitious and visually-stunning movie, telling the tale of four disparate souls -- played by Ryan Phillippe, Eva Green, Sam Riley & Bernard Hill - who find each other on their quest to find themselves. Part set in contemporary London and part set in a mythical fantasy world called Meanwhile City -- whose inhabitants must, by law, find religious faith even if that means taking washing machine instructions as their bible -- it's one of the most original and exciting British films of the year. Exclusively on RT, McMorrow opens his sketchbook and explains his vision for the film.

Total Recall: The 10 Best Superhero Hookups
No doubt Hellboy and Liz Sherman turn heads while playing
frolf at the park, or at IKEA when looking for mid-priced dressers. Superheroes
may be unusual, but, hey, even the unusual need relationships. And these two

senior romance of Indy and Marion, the sight of Israeli and Palestinian stylists
knocking combs, and the sweet purity of Wall-E and EVE, it's been a long season
of unusual relationships. Perfect for superheroes in love. In tribute to
II: The Golden Army, here's Rotten Tomatoes' list of the most
memorable superhero hookups done in Movieopolis.
