Movie Review – The Incredible Hulk – Not Bad. Not MCU Good. Watch it and move on to better things…

 

Movie Review - The Incredible Hulk
Poor little Edward Norton. He’s cute; he can act, and he really tried. He just didn’t do MCU-level work. Or maybe it was the script. Mark Rufflalo is da HULK. #SorryNotSorry

I finally finished watching The Incredible Hulk last night. The big fight scene with The Abomination is awful. Looks terribly fake and is surprisingly boring. I wanted to skip the whole scene. My idea of a great Peetime is a terrible action sequence. #DontBoreMe

I expect better from the MCU. But then, this Hulk came out the same year as Iron Man 1, which was pretty much improvised by Robert Downey Jr and was a “Marvel’, almost a fluke, in how RIGHT they got a superhero film. MCU owes him EVERYTHING. He showed them the way. The path to enlightenment!

The Incredible Hulk is an okay movie. But OK is not acceptable in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Honestly. The Incredible Hulk is a better movie than I expected after avoiding it for ten years, but it doesn’t FEEL like the MCU, except for the Stark bonus scene just before the credits.

I can’t believe I finally watched this. I felt like I needed to turn in my Geek Card all this time, so I did it. It’s NOT awful, okay?

It’s a far sight better than that previous “abominable’ Hulk attempt, but Edward Norton, cute as he is in the role of Humble Banner, is NO Mark Ruffalo. Where is the fun, the humor, the clever world-building?

Arg. Trying to not get all HULKY in my anger with this piffling film. See this only it you’re an MCU completist. And for the very last scene (or just find it on You Tube). Really. If not for that final ten seconds, I’d never know this was a part of the greatest film franchise in history.

Grade: C+

About The Peetimes: I added the 1st one now, at just before the half hour mark — a great time to go. I’ll be adding 2 more soon. Captain’s honor!

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Incredible Hulk. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

Rated (PG-13) for sequences of intense action violence, some frightening sci-fi images and brief suggestive content
Genres: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi, Superhero

Movie Review – Sausage Party – An R Rated Animated Film with Surprising Heart and A Real Message

 

Movie Review - Sausage PartyThis may look like a simple movie full of crass humor, but it’s more than that. There is actually a story in there about religion, and prejudices, that gives the story a solid framework on which to hang an abundance of crassness.

There is a never ending supply of sexual innuendo throughout the movie that reaches a…crescendo…that will leave you snorting in laughter. I’m not kidding when I say I can’t wait to watch this movie again, so I can watch the ending frame-by-frame.

By the way, this is a short movie, but if you need to pee, just a little, by the time you get to the one and only Peetime I highly recommend using it…because you don’t want to get to the end and discover you laughed so hard that you…you know. 🙂

Grade: A

About The Peetimes: There’s only one Peetime because this was such a short movie — 81 minutes, not including the credits. The one Peetime I found is pretty good. Most of it is sequences of traveling, with little dialog or humor.

There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Sausage Party. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

Rated (R) for strong crude sexual content, pervasive language, and drug use
Genres: Adventure, Animation, Comedy

Buy the movie from Amazon.com on DVD or Blu Ray
