Snuck out and saw The Hulk today and as you can see by the updated listing to the left, I liked it. Let’s go ahead and address the big issue everyone’s been carrying on about since the movie was first announced and that’s the CGI. Personally, I think they did a pretty good job with it, but not good enough to take your mind away from the fact that the Hulk is just some really nicely done CGI animation and not really a big huge green dude. Anne said she thought the CGI work was cheesy and I can sorta agree with that, but then I’m an old Doctor Who fan so I can overlook cheesy if I think the story is pretty good.
I thought the story was pretty good. A little more cerebral than your average comic book movie plot, but not so much that it took away from the joy of watching a big huge green dude smack shit up. The final battle at the end was a bit over the top if you ask me, but otherwise I had a good time. When I came home to find that someone had parked in my spot here at the apartment complex for the umpteenth time since the weather became warm enough to swim in the pool here I could’ve used having the ability to get big huge and green myself and perhaps play a little catch with the offending truck. All in all I think today’s Foxtrot comic strip summed things up rather nicely in that regard.
