Review - THE INCREDIBLE HULK

First of all, to anyone who cares, the reason I didn't do a review of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is simple. I just found the movie kinda "meh." Any movie claiming to be and Indy flick without copious use of the hero's trademark whip just isn't worth my time.

So there. And no, I won't be getting it on DVD.

Now, on to more pressing matters. What did I think of Marvel's latest offering, The Incredible Hulk? Well again, this review will be really short...

GO SEE THE INCREDIBLE HULK. IT'S AN AWESOME FUCKING MOVIE.

Seriously. I can't think of anything I didn't like (Liv Tyler annoyed me at first, but she seemed to settle in as Betty. And I loved her getting pissed with the cab driver). Everything you want from a Hulk movie is in here, and then some. Great acting from the lead? Check. Great, exciting action? Check. Stan Lee cameo? Check. Setting up characters for future installments? Oh yeah, baby.

I'm proud as heel to declare that Marvel's 2 for2. I don't know which project is up next, but trust I'll be there. Let's see if The Dark Knight can top this.

Sad to say, I have a feeling it won't.
