I wonder if the popularity of Labyrinth is symptomatic of Del Toro being something akin a one-hit wonder. It's rare to see a poll lean so decidedly in the direction of one particular movie.

Hey, Hellboy II is still the best comic book adaptation ever made!

Just because Pan's Labyrinth is easily his best doesn't mean that the rest aren't pretty awesome, too. For example, Hellboy 2 is still the best comic book adaptation ever made!
